Why Discuss Star Wars?

Star Wars is my childhood.

I was nine years old in 1977. Moving forward from that year and the first viewing of Episode IV, Star Wars is an anchoring stimulus and theme to my life story.

Star Wars has been a part of my life for decades. By following me through those decades, Star Wars has also become part of my son’s life. Truly the definition of a modern day myth and fable that is being passed generationally.

Star Wars Musings

Overused and clichéd musings about Star Wars and its meaning abound. Some thoughtful and well done, others less so. Thousands of discussions and  interpretations in print and other media exist related to Star Wars, its impact on culture and society, and its influences.

Star Wars Meaning

For me (and so many others), Star Wars is all about the magic, the characters, the mythology, the philosophy, the film-making, the filmmakers, The Force, the music, the collectibles, and most of all, Hope.

Future posts on this site may include some or no specifics to any of the topics listed above. It is my desire that my submissions will reflect the meaning of Star Wars as it has impacted my past, present, and possibly my future.

Additionally, I will be looking forward towards the future of the Star Wars saga. Whatever it may be. Follow along and we’ll explore the Star Wars universe together!

And now that I’ve seen Rogue One, I’ll be back with a review very soon. 🙂
