the post office an endangered species???

I think my little country post office the most communal place I know. People gather there, and not just for the mail. It has a graveyard next to it which may be foreshadowing if congress has its way. I also have a postbox at the end of the road which is not nearly as securely designed. The post office has snug little containers where one must come up with a combination to open the locks. The people who work at the postoffice come to know us all and we them. And we often come to know each other. I can live without Saturday delivery, but should this little moment in my life go away I should definitely miss it.


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!
