Living in Other Worlds

The people that live in more than one word live at an accelerated rate. Artists are such creatures.  They have their mundane loves, families, friends, pets, political affiliations….and they have their created worlds that often come bumping into their mundane ones.  Since I returned from Scotland I am finding that every time I try to drift away into my written or theater worlds, I am coming up against a wall.

I could blame this imbalance on my trip which unopened trap doors for me to existences that were new and provocative.  I even shape-shifted in my other worlds into eagles pumping their quests over ridges and lochs.  I put new towers back on ruined castles.  I heard the old instruments trilling songs I had never known.

THE OUTLANDER is not part of my lure to Scotland.  The world I saw was not one of a time traveling romance, but of real ragged existence.  At some point  I will write of this coming together of that world with my present summation.  Until then my computer is somewhat silent but my dreams are loud and clear.

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!
