Still Hanging Around
Relationships are funny things - some relationships weather the storms of life, some relationships are strong but are only for a season in life, and some relationships - for whatever reason - come to a close, for better or for worse. In countless ways, Star Wars offers us examples of each of these kinds of relationships. In fact, it’s not a stretch to argue that Star Wars itself is all about relationships.
Not too long ago, I was driving my great grandmother (107 years old!) to the market. She and her husband were married for 78 years(!), quite literally til death parted them. So, during the drive, I took the opportunity to ask: “Why did you choose to marry Papa?” Her answer was not a soliloquy about the alignment of the planets, or being rescued by a knight in shining armor, but instead was simple and to-the-point: “Well,” she said, “he just kept hanging around…”
There’s something to be said for ‘just hanging around’ - being a constant influence in another’s life, and enjoying the company regardless of the circumstances Life sometimes throws our way. Indeed, since the Fall of 2015, our podcast team has weathered many transitions and evolutions, but kept hanging around. Last month, Unmistakably Star Wars was honored and humbled by the folks at Feedspot.com to be recognized among so many other fantastic Star Wars pods.
For those of you unfamiliar with the creative energy and time that goes into producing a quality program on a weekly basis, it can be a grind - to the point where it can sometimes be less fun than riding a Dewback bareback (the chaffing cannot be overstated). And to our fellow creators out there, we are thankful to share in the camaraderie of being part of something that connects our passions with our friendships. And, of course, we thank our listeners for continuing to hangout with us each and every week!
We’re also thankful for other quality pods that just keep hanging around! If they’re not already part of your playlist, be sure to head over to iTunes and subscribe to Skytalkers, Geeky Bubble, Tumbling Saber, and Clashing Sabers!
