Today is May the 4th, as in: "May the Fourth be with you." It is the unofficial Star Wars day. I have a lot of friends of mine that are uber fans. Me? I like the movies well enough but I would not categorize myself as an uber fan. I like Princess Leia.
I remember my Titi Mina taking us to see Star Wars. I remember that the line was so long and how cool it was to see the words go across the screen the way that it did. I was about 5? Maybe I was older. The line to get into the movies was super long. I think it was the second movie I had ever been too. The first movie was "Sleeping Beauty." I will confess now that I slept during the movie and I didn't watch it again until I was an adult. I have found that I enjoy movies immensely but I'm not a fanatic of them either. It's good to find out these things about yourself.
I remember watching Episodes 1-3. You will disagree but they are my favorite. I finally understand more of the plot. I liked watching Darth Vader begin the transition. I am a person who likes sequence and endings. I haven't seen the ending yet. I'm taking my time with this series. I don't know if I'll like the way it ends things being that I have not made my peace with the way the order was presented.
I love the themes of Star Wars. I like the idea of the Dark Side and Light Side. I like the enthusiasm shown to fight and the idea of having a cause. Star Wars started something. The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc... it presents a group of characters as the heroes with their varying roles. People in offices and in teams can relate to the misfit, or the mean princess (😃😁), the mentor, etc... I think there is even an MBTI chart corresponding to the various personality types of Star Wars.
I have a Princess Leia action figure that I liked and bought on sale at Game Stop. I think I have a sweatshirt somewhere. I'm not a die hard fan but I like the story enough to rep some gear and partake of the festivities, if I'm allowed. There are other things I would like to talk about this week. I'm going to sign off right about now but... May God's force and blessings be upon you today and I always pray that you choose Light over Dark when you are looking at sides.
