Well I came, I saw, I got COVID, and I LIVED bitches!!!
Quarantine is over, I am symptom free and grocery shopping never felt so good!
Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, now to pressing news.
As someone raised in an Orthodox Christian household I will, without fail, have an automatic thought following someone saying ‘May the force be with you’. Those who went to church on the regular at some point in their lives know what I’m talking about.
May the Force be with you.
And also with you.
But yes, that is the reason today’s post is on Tuesday rather than monday. It is Star Wars Day! May the 4th or, as some are now saying This is the May, holds a special place in my heart. Star Wars is an epic example of storytelling at it’s finest.
While some might argue that it is a fantasy that happens to be in space and others staunchly claim it as sci-fi (I’m in the middle just happy to be here) it cannot be denied that Star Wars, the original trilogy along with its many adaptations, have withstood the test of time.
That is my ultimate goal. Not to be as big as Star Wars (my ego isn’t that big quite yet) but to be something that can be enjoyed this year, next year, and fifty years from now. Another example is the many works of Tolkien.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not looking for any level of fame from being an author (though it would be a nice fringe benefit for sure). I am seeking to share my stories with an eager audience so that they can be a part of the worlds I create.
It is my greatest hope that not just this generation, but also those to follow, enjoy my books.
Happy Star Wars Day!
