Today is May the 4th also known as Star Wars Day. A play on the famous tagline from the Star Wars Movies: May The Force Be With You. If you are a new follower, then let me share that I love Star Wars. Seriously. I do. I have since way back in May 1977 as a kid. I have watched them so much especially the original trilogy that I can practically say all the lines. Yep. My favorite is The Empire Strikes Back.
Before I go on my how I love Luke Skywalker monologue. Let me give props to Carrie Fisher who rocked as Princess Leia. She radiated strength, wit and beauty.
Now, let me get back to my how I love Luke. My adoration for Luke and especially to Mark Hamill knows no bounds. In my own life, Luke became a touchstone when I had my own difficult paths to walk. True story, I did get to meet Mark Hamill way back in the 90's. He was so sweet to me. My heart just melts thinking about that. I still have his autograph on my wall.

Also from Empire..
I was fascinated by the Jedi Knights as a kid and still am. I like to think that I am Jedi in some ways.
I love this picture of James Earl Jones, who voiced Darth Vader, and Mark Hamill. Father and Son together.
Before I go, I can see this is getting to be a long post. There is so much more that I can say about Star Wars.There are other characters that I adore. I may have to do another post on them. I can't forget Billy Dee Williams as the charming and daring Lando Calrissian.
Sending Love to all my fellow Star Wars fans out there. Can't wait for Episode 7!! I am hoping the omission of Billy Dee Williams in episode 7 will be rectified!
