Personal: A Long Time Ago...

I just came home a bit ago from seeing the last new Star Wars movie I'll ever catch in a theatre. After a 28-year run from my cousin Steve talking it up and getting me to beg my Mom in a hyper, incoherent stand-up routine consisting of my re-enacting R2-D2 being shot and captured by Jawas--all on the basis of Steve's description of that central event--to tonight's viewing with Dan Lloyd and Professor Barnes, well, after that long, I think I have to request a moment of silence for Mr. Lucas in gratitude for helping define the wide imaginative boundaries of my childhood. In some mad, operatic way, I'm sure that it played its part in leading me to this strange role I've taken for my own real life.
