Volume 21, Issue 1: Rust and Stardust (2012-2013 Issue)

And the Rest is Rust and Stardust

"And the Rest is Rust and Stardust"

Calvin: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.
Hobbes: How so?
Calvin: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.

--Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

This year The Promethean staff wanted a theme that would inspire people to look up at the stars and feel the power of the universe. After four weeks of discussion we decided that Rust and Stardust would bring a variety of submissions inspired by the infinite creativity the universe lends us. To our delight, this proved true, and we are very pleased with the journal this year.

The Promethean seeks to encourage a variety of entries from all sorts of people, and that is exactly what we got. We received many delightful pieces from a variety of writers, ranging from English majors, to Biology and Psychology majors, to incredibly talented community members. Here you will find the ones that made the cut. These are the poems, stories, and photos that inspired discussion, and at times, left us speechless.

The creation of this journal takes a dedicated group of people. This could not have been done without all of our student editors, faculty, staff support, and of course, all of our magnificent contributors.

This issue is near and dear to my heart as this is my final year at Concordia. My three years on the staff, one as Managing Editor, have deeply inspired me, increased my love of literature, and given me a sense of belonging. I will greatly miss being a part of the staff that composes the annual medley of Concordia's creative community. Therefore, it is with deep satisfaction that I, and The Promethean staff, present this year's Rust and Stardust issue to you.
