So much Star Wars on

This event in Chicago

One of my life’s great joys

Star Wars has long been a key part of my life. The films are a central part of my personal mythology. I’ve written a few other poems about the films, and I expect I’ll write more.

With Star Wars Celebration going on in Chicago this weekend, I’ve been delighted to watch video footage of the happenings. I’ve long been inspired by the universe, and delighted as we keep moving forward. I felt a desire to communicate a bit of what it feels like to watch what’s happening to these characters I love. I hope I did it justice.
