May the 4th…

…be with you.

Happy Star Wards day y’all! I know there are bigger things happening in the world and country right now, but I need more processing time before writing about those. I have strong feelings about them – I just don’t think I can express them the way I want to yet. So for now, let’s talk Star Wars and in the importance of the fandom to so many. Personally, I enjoy Star Wars but it isn’t what I would call one of my big fandoms. That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the impact it has had on peoples lives. It inspires people to dream, even if it seems silly to others. It taught us we all have light and dark and can change. It highlights that light can’t exist without dark and vice versa. Most importantly, it’s never too late to do the right thing. ALSO that Leia was one of the only super bad ass useful characters in the series who didn’t run and hide at the first sign of trouble (cough cough Han and Luke). Adam Driver was one of the best castings. I wonder what would have happened in the story if Carrie Fisher hadn’t died. I don’t think Han was supposed to be Ben’s saving grace – always mean to be Leia. Life changes plans though and best we can do is make Space Mom proud. So let’s make Space Mom and all the strong women proud and fight the shit that’s happening right now to deny woman rights to our own bodies – but that’s for another post. Stay tuned…
