Where’s my lightsaber?

Yes, I loved it!

In 1977, I loved the first one. I have seen them all.

What is it about Star Wars?

There are more exciting stories, perhaps, but the thought of traveling to “a galaxy far, far away” never fails to draw me. And hundreds of thousands of others, apparently, also make time to travel to that long-ago time and far-away place, regularly. But, especially when a new movie comes out.

It’s such a simple tale — the forces of good battle the forces of evil.

I have always been attracted to such morality plays, and these are the best of the modern best. Aren’t they, though! Even though the middle trilogy got a bit bogged down in special effects and battle scenes, blurring the message somewhat, the underlying allegory remained: Choose a godly life over the distracting forces of evil.

May the force be with you.

If only it were so simple. But, then, maybe the message is that it has never been simple.

We, as humans, keep trying.  . . . We must keep trying. Especially in our modern age.

The search for salvation, then for redemption? It just goes on, doesn’t it?

Now, just how long do I have to wait for the next movie?
