Souls trapped in time
This line of thought prompted me to write my first blog for The Times of Israel; if it doesn't get published here is my post.
For as long as I have had an interest in Jewish history, I’ve wanted to visit Masada. The story of the final holdout against the Romans intrigues me.
The fort is a bone of contention for Jews; some see it as a measure of the lengths people will go to uphold their identity, while others see the fort as a reminder of how stubborn people can be and the end results it can bring.
For my part, I can see both views have their merits.
My interest was primarily in the military history of the site but as I am a writer of the paranormal Ghosts don’t dance – I don’t say ghost stories – my stories are more spiritual than scary, I’d be interested in visiting the site to see if there is any paranormal activity. It is a fact; the stone is an excellent recorder of sound. Do you think the fort could hold within its walls the voices of the last souls who were there?
As a writer, I would love to visit the fort to get the feel of the surroundings and write a story called “The Ghosts of Masada,” but I know it is only a dream, my disability makes travel almost impossible these days.
This thought pattern then produced this line of thinking - Do you believe in an afterlife?
