Entering by the side door

I am not so unmoved by the world’s lack of notice. I can get in the side door and see the show, even if they deny me the glory of
the main entrance. I just got back from doing a performance of
my Gertrude Stein piece for an audience. It went unnoticed by
the general theater world, and yet it made me happy to have written and performed it. Sometimes the tears come when I think what my acting career might have been. Sometimes the smiles come when I live as an observer rather than the observed.

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!

    Not completely unobserved. There are some who adore all your work, Christine! I wish we were more than we are, but you do have fans.
