What is color? what is race?

We live in a nuanced world now where race, color, gender, nationality, religion all are blendings rather than purities.
I think it makes the world a more fascinating place, but there are those who don’t like to paint outside the lines. Perhaps it is
not for me to judge them. But they should not judge others who see complexity where they see simplicity.
The tangle that makes each person’s back story is just that — a tangle. I do not know what it is like to live in another’s shoes until I have played them as a character when I do theatre, but I do know we must not steal each other’s back stories. We have our own to work out. That’s hard enough.

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!
