The Slings and Arrows

Often Death is portrayed as a beautiful passage.  Going towards the light is leaving darkness behind.  In movies it involves final confessions, resolutions, and a music underlies it.  We who have lived on this earth in all its posturings know that is not the case.  Death is sad, messy, best avoided.  Anthony Bourdain must have figured this out long ago.  He often looked life fairly and squarely in the face.  Why not hang around for the next round of wine and cheese on a sunny afternoon?  He’s not here to tell us, but still we ask the question.


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!
