The Price of Beauty

As we grow older the face that launches a thousand ships (or one little rowboat) costs more to upkeep at losing rates. I played many old women in my youth as an actress, but I haven’t ended up looking like any of them. Eye cream, face regeneration, etc. is a big bundle of money. Sometimes one knows the folly of it all, and sometimes one doesn’t. I want my husband not to look into eyes without wrinkles rather than my eyes. And his eyes? They too have
taken a toll. The beauty of the mind? That’s more subtle. And more endurable. Until we lose that mind.


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!
