Day #163: Star Wars

I cannot let this day slip away without expressing gratitude for Star Wars. When the original film was first released in 1977, I was leaving a job I’d had for seven years with a public library system. It was my first job so it was bittersweet to be moving on to a new path. Individually, a number of my co-workers wanted to treat me to something meaningful as a going away gift. Each person thought it would be a treat to take me to Star Wars. I saw the movie 13 times without letting on that I’d seen it before. It was the first time that I’d been to a movie more than once. The observations I made were mind-opening about film, storytelling, and acting. The story was well-crafted … and it began a mythology that persists worldwide. My life would not be the same had this movie not been imagined. May the Force be with you!
