Happy Birthday! Always bittersweet….

I am having a birthday today. One made beautiful by my husband,
my friends, my son, and my animals. When I was young and wandering around wondering what to do with my existence the birthdays were like a drip of water on my head….reminding me my life was passing. Today time stood still while I sat out in my garden with a chorus line of birds along the branches and people I love sharing
thoughts. Bittersweet is how I would always define birthdays, but whether the emphasis is on the “bitter” or the “sweet” depnds on others who let one know one’s value to the day.

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!
