Sicily-At the tip of the toe

On the map Italy looks like it might give Sicily the boot, but really the Island escapes by a small expanse of water.  We are going to Sicily for the first time this year.  I am dealing with a changing kaleidoscope of images about this region, swirling foods and cultures enough to make one dizzy.  I have always said one can never go to Italy too much.  Every trip we take gives us a new perspective.  Now I am trying to calm my excitement as to this island that has endured the invasion of a thousand different elements which it has embraced.   



About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
