Hello There – A Star Wars Haiku

We’re staying in that Galaxy far, far away this week because the feels are real right now!

Like I explained last week, back near the turn of the century, I was getting my first fix of Star Wars when the prequels were still on the horizon. Oh, how hyped I was, and long before the movie was even out, it, like a Jedi’s lightsaber, was my life. And right at the top of all the awesomeness stood Ewan McGregor‘s Obi-Wan, who was the absolute coolest! From posters to videotaped documentaries to notebooks and lightsaber shaped pencils, I treasured everything Kenobi related I could get my hands on. I even remember printing out website pages with him on them when my dad took me to work once!

And now, nearly twenty years after we last saw him, Ewan’s back as the legendary Jedi Master, starring in his own series no less! Much to my delight, last Friday’s first two episodes did not disappoint in the slightest, even brought some unexpected but welcome points of view, and have me excited for what’s to come! All in all, it has me feeling like that kid in the late nineties again, and I’d say that’s at least worth a little haiku! ^_^

Hello There
The wait is over
The fabled hero of old
Has returned at last


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
