Don't look.

Eros the god made love with Psyche the women but she wasn't supposed to look at him.

Lot's wife wasn't supposed to look back as she left town, as per God's instructions.

They both lived in the Mediterrean region, a great place for looking. Great light, so land forms and human built objects glow with the promise of meaning. But they weren't supposed to look.

Psyche was in what is now Greece, and Lot's wife in what is now Israel.
