Chicken Little and the Falling Sky

Where can we live that we are safe from harm? Everest itself is breaking apart and tornadoes rip the sky…when I read chicken little as a child I thought he was silly as did the other animals on the farm. There is nothing so comic as a wide-eyed extremist. But now I actually see pieces of a peacful world cracking. Climate change is the new chicken little. And it’s not so humorous anymore. I find myself too cast as chicken little. What needs to crack us on the head before chicken little goes from town idiot to town hero?


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!
