Today is Star Wars day. I know. I can hardly believe it either. And yes – I do own a Lightsaber. Jealous?
I got to thinking about Star Wars and how it changed the world. Then my brain-hole popped out of macro mode and into micro. And I remembered being a kid and going to see the movie in Griffin, GA. Unlike a lot of kids, I didn’t see it a million-billion-god-zillion times. I only saw it once. And once was enough to have an impact.
I know someone my age who’s never seen Star Wars. He says that at this point, he’s holding out so that there will be something to put on his headstone. “Don the Juan – He never saw Star Wars.” Beats a lot of other things I’ve seen on headstones.
Anyhoo – I for one am grateful Star Wars is a part of this world. I love the creativity. I love the good, solid story. In short, I love the movie. So today I plan to take a moment and appreciate Mr. Lucas and what he’s given us. And May the Force Be With You. May it be with us all.
