Ok a silly one. One of the joys of the holiday period is watching old movies that you’ve seen a hundred times and doing so without a hint of nerd.
So my flatmate Sair and I have been watching the original Star Wars trilogy and it occured to me that when Yoda’s trying to teach Luke about the Force he talks about the Force as the thing that binds the universe together – the thing that flows between all living things. And this awareness of our interconnectedness – our herd nature – and the need to nurture it, seem like a good reason to celebrate Yoda.
So may the Force be with you!
