Happy Mother’s Day 2016

Solos pt 2 by Ariel (as Orisoni)

The more I ponder it, the more I realize the moms of the Star Wars Galaxy have it pretty rough.  I respect and appreciate all the mothers toiling to raise their kids right; whether from Tatooine, Alderaan, Toledo, or Alhambra.

If it wasn’t for the moms of the world, I may not be posting anything…since I noticed May 2015 was the last time I made a post. A lot of time has passed by, and much ha happened to me. I am quite different now than a year ago, though I seek to improve myself with each passing year: but this is about moms, not me.

Biological; surrogate; adoptive; or spiritual. It is not what is in one’s DNA but in the person’s heart.

Lastly, it is not about the good times, but the day-to-day.  Mothers make the hardest choices and suffer the loudest breaks of the heart when doing what feels the most right, despite what the best answer is.

Happy Mother’s Day 2015

Anakin's vision of mom

This goes out to all the moms out there…

The ones who can be called…

…as well as the ones who can only manifest in a vision.

If you can dial your mother, feel lucky – and then make that call.  If you can visit her; make the call, and then surprise her by showing up.

Anakin once flew all the way from Naboo to Tatooine just to show his mom how much he cared.  And people call him a sith whiny bad guy.  If she’s less than a tank of gas away, go for it!

Happy Mother’s Day 2012

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!  In a galaxy full of empty promises, I hope mine rings close-enough-to-true by saying I’ll do my best to cause less chaos than the guy above.

In addition to echoing The Pietà, I like how this image “returns the favor” so to speak; when Anakin last spoke with his mom.  Her coming back to offer comfort while he’s stranded on Mustafar speaks volumes – especially considering the depths this boy from Tatooine plummeted by this point.  That goes to show why so many cards get purchased around this time in May.

Don’t forget to pause a bit to think of at least one time mom was there for you – especially a time when it seemed nobody else was.

I came across this image when seeking out some Star Wars propoganda poster art.  Joe Corroney is a talented artist; doing work for a variety of licenses including Doctor Who; Marvel; Star Trek; 24; True Blood.  See lots more here.
