RED WINE AND HAPPINESS

There are all those stories about how artists are drinkers, and even how they like to just blur the rules others live by for a healthy life. Also the stories about how one glass of red wine
improves that healthy life.
I don’t know about blurring lines, but red wine sitting in the garden at sunset with my head filled with half-finished poems and stories, my dog at my feet, my husband at my side — that’s as close as I come to happiness in this messy life.
There’s little we can depend upon. A glass of dry red wine with its clarity of taste helps steady a wobbly universe for me.

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!
