The Sad Days

Depression is definitely part of life. Just like we hate to drive those flat straight roads through endless cornfields, we also hate our life not to have dimensional differences.
I know one of my sad days every year is today — the day of my son’s death. It is hard to get through, and yet it is important to honor the grieving that comes, even if I don’t share it with those around me.
Other sad days creep up and mug me. That type of depression is in the nature of being a rather dark person.
Depression is a necessary element of joy (and vice veersa) so unless it becomes that flat straight road without deviation we must accept its normality.


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!
