Melinda’s Brew: Coming Home

Melinda's Brew

“Wesa goen home!” Jar Jar Binks exclaims jubilantly moments before Queen Amidala and her entourage board her sleek starship for their return journey to Naboo. Can you blame Jar Jar for his unrestrained enthusiasm? He is akin to a fish out of water [almost literally] while on the daunting, intimidating city planet Coruscant. He is thrilled to be venturing home to Naboo. The same cannot be said for the Queen. Oh, Amidala Naberrie most likely is happy to be returning to her beautiful, lush home world, but since her trip to the capital had been less than auspicious, her hoped-for elation is tempered with both disappointment and determination. [She is one shrewd cookie. The Senate may not have jumped to Naboo’s and her aid, but she is a woman and leader of action. Plan A didn’t work. As any great strategist knows – have a Plan B. 🙂 ]

Art, Meaning, and Fun in Star Wars: The Special Edition – A Guest Blog by Dan Reilly

Star Wars is like a song you love. You hear the song and it takes you back to a special time in your life. It’s a soundtrack for your memories. You hear it and images unfold on the screen of your mind, accompanied by an array of sights, sounds, and sensations. For instance, within a few notes of “America the Beautiful” by Ray Charles, I’m back celebrating the 4th of July in the neighborhood where I grew up. I smell hotdogs on the grill and gunpowder in the air. I hear the cheers of baseball games, the sizzle and pop of sparklers, firecrackers, and Coca-Cola. I see star-spangled streamers flapping from bicycles, and breeze-kissed American flags waving from porches, washed golden in the sun, and then in the warm dusk, exploding gemstones of fireworks illuminating and patterning the sky.
