Back from the Ages

A week in Sicily is a travel through time. My husband and I were delighted to go so deep into a past and arrive back here in the present where we live and breathe. The slow breaking apart of a Greek world into a Roman world into an Arab world into a Norman world — and finally into an Italian world. Our hearts danced through all the ways cultures look at this strange earth where we find ourselves. What prevails
is the heartbeat of the oceans and the push of the mountains….and our quest to remain here as long as we can, although the temples certainly outlast us.


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!
