Jane Goodall Turns 80!

When I was an anthropology major many years ago Jane Goodall was the one we admired.
I hope all those anthropology students who graduated and those still students understand this woman has been an inspiration to anyone wanting to see a wider world and culture than the usual dictates we find limiting us. She has made primates our friends and companions on this long search to find — who knows what the end of the search is!! She has shown love, dedication, and a stiff spine to those who praise her or scorn her both.
In my novel, THE NUN’S DRAGON, one Sister asks if there is a deeper love than Christian love. I think Jane Goodall’s life provides the answer for us. Happy Birthday, Jane!


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!
