Star Wars

Star Wars PosterIn May Empire Strikes Back, Episode V, the second in the series of Star Wars movies came out. Yes, it was the second movie but episode five. It had been three years since the first Star Wars movie, which was episode four, and by this time, although we still wondered, we quit asking about what happened to episodes one through three, it would be almost twenty years later before we would find out. In the Empire Strikes Back Luke goes up against his nemesis Darth Vader in a space age sword fight using light sabers.  Vader tries to lure Luke to the Dark Side, Luke refuses, Vader cuts off Luke’s hand, Vader reveals that he is Luke’s father.  Wow, I didn’t expect that.  I didn’t find it as good as the first one, Episode 4 that is, but it was still very good.

Journal Entry
May 31, 1980

December twenty second, nineteen hundred and fifty two.
A relatively uneventful day, not that I could remember
But times were good and people proceeded about their lives.
Early that morning I was brought forth from the warm womb
Of my mother into the harsh coldness of the world.
There short days later to be taken home and placed
Under the Christmas tree to surprise and joy of my sister
When she awoke that Christmas morning.
Thus my story begins here because I began my life's journey that day
And it is this journey that takes me to where I am this day.

 I wrote this in my journal in May. Little did I know that my birthday this year would be a bit traumatic.
