Happy Coincidence

Easter and Passover intersect this year. Two moments of importance in religions
that dominate the culture I live in. I stand as an outsider, regarding them both.
The Jewish people escaping slavery and the young Jesus escaping life for Life. Both required escape and sacrifice to bring around a new reality for those who followed.
My attempts to break free of any bondage I feel are not so narrative. I see the
world around me attempting to break free of winter and find a new fertility. I enjoy the music these events inspired and even the foods and some of the traditions. It should be like a burst of blossoms to experience either one of the joys of the holiday. The birds beg their seed, the trees beg their waters, and
we wait with held breath, happy to finally release the pent up air.

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!
