Very nicely put!
Certainly, there was some of that in mind when I started writing this. Never once did I consider the possibility that Star Wars wouldn’t always be a large part of my life. And yet… life sneaks up on you. One day things don’t quite feel the same as they used to. Some of that is nostalgia, no question. But too, some of it is the realization that you aren’t the same person anymore, for good or ill.
I was frankly shocked when I realized I wasn’t nearly as invested in the saga as I had been. As I assumed I’d always be. That turned to introspection, and from there, to writing. I always think best when I write things out. :)
