On the Road Again

Traveling is increasingly more cumbersome. Airlines don’t feed you — sometimes they don’t even water you! I am back from a trip to Arizona where the meeting with old friends made me think of the journey with delight if I don’t include the airlines part.

Why do we travel? Business, obviously. Pleasure, hopefully. Certainly not for the trip itself (unless it is a luxury cruise).

Arizona has so many landscapes that my head is still spinning between mesas, desert, mountains, and the rest. Hot as a tasty
confection from the oven. Decorated in the beauty of those who came before the current peoples that run the place. Native American echoes fill the subtle backdrop of our appreciation.

So yes, I still travel. And hate the small seats, the small service,
the small minds. But getting there and seeing the windsweep of
life colored in earth tones with vibrant flowers on the prickly pear
cacti. ……that is worth the indignities we must endure.


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!
