Valley of the Moon

Wadi Dana, Jordan---Earth blurs to sky, violet pink to noble blue, no horizon line. Above, setting stars rain from the black. Within, strings of white fairy lights, like webs in mists to catch them: the townships of the Arabah, afloat in purgatory shimmer. Dana village is perched high above them, a mix of crumbling Ottoman ruin and incremental modern day construction, the neon sign of the Dana Tower Hotel shining at the peak.
