Happy Star Wars Day!
Today, no politics (though I can’t promise that any other day!). No history. No personal pet peeves.
I just want to wish my followers, friends and family a happy Star Wars Day, today, May the 4th, 2021.
2 years ago I went to the May the 4th Art Festival at a large open warehouse in Eado, purchased a few works of art, as did my wife, and in general was elated to be amongst my peers. This year, for the 2nd time, there will not be a similar gathering, however if enough Americans drop their scientific ignorance and turn off FauxNews, NewsMax, OAN and other sources of misinformation about Covid and their proven vaccines, next year we may have a new hope (see what I did there?).
Star Wars just brings me happiness. I’ve been to every opening day or fan event new movie opening since Empire, and have a fairly decent collection of books, autographs, toys and assorted goodies, and was once in an elevator alone with George Lucas, ghod himself. And although I’m a touch disappointed in Solo and Revenge of the Sith (liked Attack of the Clones best among the prequels), they are still Star Wars, and love is unquestioning.
So for the holiday, I made a meme, in full size below. Feel free to copy and use, post, SMS or tag anywhere you like. The art is not mine, but the sentiment? I’m all about it.
