Birthdays, politics, etc.

I went to two birthday parties this weekend with delicious food and some guests who were determined to discuss the election. Let them eat cake.
My husband was determined to jump in. I know minds cannot be easily changed, and especially when wine has flowed. I must keep the faith that some of them are more clear-eyed than in the throes of seduction by phrases — free this or that, tax cuts, bomb the hell out of the enemy, etc. Life i9s a nuanced event where one needs a
good map to get ahead to the pleasanter meadows….if indeed this year offers any pleasanter meadows.
Birthdays and elections are sign posts for progress. Let’s use them both that way.


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!
