Salty Sister

"Quit living in the past!"
"You know what happened to Lot's wife!"
My friends whispers are sharp and unknowing.
I am quite calm when I reply,
I know what happened to Lot's wife,
and I am quite pointed
(like a pillar)
when I pose this question back:
Is it BECAUSE
she looked back that she turned into a crystal column or...
was it BECAUSE she stopped moving...
(in order to get a better look at the life she left behind?)
It seems a bit unfair that just the looking back
would
turn
her into a dried out hardened old pickle.
I really don't know.
I know I am moving forward,
but I am still looking back and...
I am not iodized
or
crystallized.
So my final answer is -
I think it is the looking back
and the moving forward
that makes me the salty sister I am.
And that is why I have preserved so well.

Kim, I really liked the way you looked at the pillar of salt in such a unique way. But with Lot's wife, I really think ahe was only punished for looking back because for some reason God had forbid it in her specific case. Not that it takes anything away from your work - I just kept thinking about the specifics of that event. Looking back and looking forward are needed to see where we've come from and why we've decided to become the salt of the earth in a good sense. Good job. May God keep you writing! Sincerely, Dan Blankenship Author of THE RUNNING GIRL
