This journey begins, like all journeys should, at the very beginning. I started reading a graphic novel series called Tales of the Jedi, which encompasses Star Wars history dating all the way back to 25,000 years Before the Battle of Yavin, Episode IV (BBY) up until about 1,000 years BBY. Now, as I write this post, I'm reading the adventures of a young Han Solo, a mere 5 years BBY.
Along the way I've learned much about the Star Wars Galaxy, as I have about myself. You may laugh, yes, but you would be surprised how deeply the moral and practical lessons that the Star Wars mythos teaches us resonate with the real world. Lessons of discipline, of acceptance, of love- and, of course, fear, anger and hate.
Join me in this wonderful adventure, which I hope never, ever has to end.
May the Force Be With You, Always.
