What Do I Want to be When I Grow Up?

Part of me never wants to grow up much like Peter Pan, but sadly growing old is not debated. While the world feels young , the face that looks back at me from the mirror is not so young. I
thought growing up would liberate me when I was a teenager, but it just presented me with new scenarios to solve in which I was caught by duty or choices or just plain love.
I also see my husband who is now grown old but not completely grown up. His light foot on the stairs is sometimes still there.
But he and I understand that we can bring our youth along in our memories of Time spent. The Time ahead is no longer to be wasted, but rather protected and enjoyed in the fullness of maturity.


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!
