Wales and the singing hills

I just got back from Wales where even the sheep seem to be musical against the lush green hills, and the roads are not all super highways . We are made to pay attention to the curves of landscape and thought there.
We all go too fast through the worlds we inhabit. And we like to see the films rather than actually read the deeper renditions of the novels from which they derive.
I love a land where a red dragon is the symbol. It is a dragon that commands our look. It is antique yet immediate. It is a dragon that could roar but is content to sing.

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!
