The Year is Dead, Long Live the Year

We make these frail boundaries between past and present. I am sitting in
2013 instead of 2012, feeling pretty much the same. Angry with congress for keeping us in constant state of worry about our lives. Glad to have done the wonderful things that were beads on the necklace of last year.
Wishing I had acted more and written more. Delighted to find my husband by my side when I get up in the morning and go to bed in the evening.
There are those who might now have enjoyed last year so much. Those in that mix of fears about eating, relationships, finding a roof, finding a job, staying free of disease and warfare. To them I offer the hope that a brand new year can be a year of brand new circumstances.

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!
