A Ride in the Country

There is always something optimistic about a ride into Lancaster County where the Amish have a large presence.  To see their world beside our own makes me know that a simpler life without cars and TV and such may be more inclusive of the world people created to live a self-sufficient existence.  I know I could not be happy in such a contained world, but those who can and do live that life should be honored too.  There are problems , of course.  I smile at those who go up there and stay in themed hotels and take the buggy rides and feel they are being momentarily Amish.  It’s a hard life.


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!
