As some of you may have noticed, I have a blog titled High Horseman of the Apocalypse. A blog is a character in a play – or maybe, in my case, a character looking for a play. It’s like a play in which everything is lacking but the monologues.
Funny thing is, that’s how some scholars imagine the Christian Gospels to have been created. What people had, within an oral tradition, was basically Jesus’ blog, his monologues, his sayings, and around these they wrote a story to explain who the dude was who said those things.
Anyway, I have a blog, and this blog is a particular character called The High Horseman of the Apocalypse. This character is both tongue-in-cheek and deadly serious, utterly rational and completely stoned. It’s either the part I was born to play, or an act I’m putting on. I’m not really sure.
Perhaps it’s best, yet still hopefully, put as a step along the way.
