Welcome, welcome… welcome!
What do I say? What can I blog about that might be interesting. Well, let me set it up a little bit. Something of a pre-ramble before I really start to ramble. I think this blog and this website are somewhat of a shrine to myself. How arrogant, I know. But, I am a rockstar which covers a variety of sins. A couple of years ago I had another website called costlygrace.ca. I got the name/idea of the site from a Lutheran theologian/martyr from WW2 era, named Dietrich Bonhoeffer. A true inspiration to my life, but the website lacked focus. I was trying to create a website that wanted to be focussed on me but I felt ashamed to glorify myself so much. I found that I was always in an awkward balance between trying to have it be about more somehow. So, I threw up a collage of images of Christ painted by Georges Rouault. Though Christ can be a centering force, in my mind, it was something of a facade–and not a very good one. I was hiding. This time, there can be no hiding.
Truly, welcome to rockstarpoet.ca! This is meant to be a professional, personal and goofy site contained with all sorts of things. I have had troubles because on the About page I use third person, but by the Visual page I have switched to first. So, this website is going to be all over the place, as will this blog. I will post as different characters, different writing styles… basically it will be an open space for anything I can conjure. And I hope that will keep things fresh. You may hear from me (Rhett), Tumbleweed Truthteller, God, Soveran and anyone else that comes to mind.
I have lots of ideas for this website and right now it is just a shell for everything I hope it can accomplish. Enjoy K-OS. He seems to be something of a rockstar poet to me. Feel free to comment and/or email me at: rhett AT soveran DOT ca.
