Wednesday, August 4, 2010 A Wailing Wall

"Wailing Wall" mural, parking lot on the northeast corner of Sunset Boulevard and Hyperion, photographed on Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Jerusalem has its Wailing Wall half of it dating from the end of the Second Temple period, built around 19 BC by Herod the Great. In Arabic the wall is el-Mabka the "Place of Weeping" the traditional Arabic term for the same wall. It's where you go pray for help in this sorry world. It's the oldest of universal traditions go to the wall and pray. It might help, or you might discover that talking with God is like talking to a brick wall.

And now Sunset Junction has a bit of a Wailing Wall or something like that. This new mural about life in this sorry world just popped up in a chained-off parking lot on the northeast corner of Sunset Boulevard and Hyperion.
