It was the best of times….etc.

Does anyone recognize the opening lines of TALE OF TWO CITIES?? This might as well be called The Tale of Two Americas….We are entering into the season of giving. The problem is that we are giving to the wrong things. We need to give to the poor, the animals, and not to our relations who usually have more gadgets than carter had liver pills.

I am addressing cards to many people who will only count the amount of cards they get and not the joy of reaching out to old friends over the dark, cold December.

If you think I am thinking BAH HUMBUG you may well be correct. The first Christmas, we are told, did not take place at Walmart.

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!
