#Obitine and #Padakin: A Clone Wars Ring Theory Analysis

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

Now that I have the attention of the Star Wars shippers out there…!

August, 2017 marked the nine-year anniversary of the theatrical premiere of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. On March 11, 2013, it was announced that Lucasfilm would be cancelling the beloved television series. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I wept at that announcement, and went through the entire grief process, trying to come to terms with the loss. I pined for the characters, the stories, and just the idea of being able to look forward to each passing week, so I could fill the Star Wars need in my life. I listened to the beautifully compelling musical works of Kevin Kiner, reliving the emotional journey of some of the characters and pivotal scenes.

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. 🙂 ]

Melinda’s Brew: Rey of Sunshine

Melinda's Brew

A couple of days ago, I stopped into our local financial institution to do a bit of banking, and since there were no other customers waiting in line, I took a little extra time to chat with the friendly teller. The course of our discussion took us down the path of musing about change and how open to it people are. About 35 years my junior, I was surprised when Sam told me she did not like change at all. “I like to know what I’m doing when, where I’ll be tomorrow,” she remarked. I remember being her age, and being very open to change. Don’t get me wrong. There is something comforting about the steadfast day-to-day goings-on, but change can open whole new worlds to a person, give one the chance to explore the previously unknown frontier. Different strokes for different folks, of course, but that didn’t stop me from smiling to myself as I left the bank, shaking my head pondering what Sam could be missing by wanting to keep her feet firmly planted in her own yard.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: “I have failed you Anakin. I have failed you.” ~Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

For years we have been made aware of the dynamic and complex nature of the Jedi and the Sith. It’s not difficult to see flaws in the purity of the Jedi and the humanity in the darkness of the Sith. For Anakin Skywalker, this hazy cross-section of morality is where he found himself. There, juxtaposed between two force-wielding sects, he encountered his frailty. In Episode III, his master, Obi-Wan, admits that he failed his vexed padawan. However, the blame was not Obi-Wan’s alone. The Jedi council in its entirety had gone astray and led Anakin down the dark path while making a weak attempt to prevent its collapse. As difficult as it seems, the council could not protect Anakin from himself. Instead, they fueled their own destruction with hypocrisy and a lack of integrity.

Melinda’s Brew: What Are Those Dreams Made Of?

Melinda's Brew

Have you ever found yourself in a particular place or situation, going about your business, and suddenly pulled yourself up short, coming to the conclusion that you have experienced that exact place or situation before – knowing as sure as you’re standing there that you never have been in that place or situation? I have found myself in such situations – more often than I care to admit – and, at the very least, I find them unsettling. An eerie feeling comes over me, and while I do my best to shake off such unwelcome sensations, I can’t help but consider George Lucas was on to something when he worked Force dreams into the Jedi’s abilities. Dreams – they’re pretty powerful stuff!
