A Little Cheer

We’re all influenced by the worlds around us.  I have yet to meet anyone who has created entirely in a vacuum, though that might be interesting, too.  I have a feeling, given the prevalence of the story, that they might end up re-re-re-re-re-making “Dances With Wolves” and I’d be thrilled with that, because I’ve liked that story every time someone tells it.

Anyways, my world has been influenced by a lot of the fantasy and sci-fi genres.  I grew up on my Dad’s seventies science fiction, and the sword-and-sorcery stamp on the fantasy world.  I’ve grown with it through the the various iterations we’ve seen over the past several decades, and I love all of those works dearly.  But when there’s bad news all day every day like it seems we’ve had the past couple weeks, I go back to the stories from my childhood.  They are the chicken soup to my cold-ridden heart.

I just found this interview with Carrie Fisher about the upcoming Star Wars movie, and it really cheered me up.   She’s such an unstoppable source of good humor.  I hope you like it!  P.S. Who’s excited to see the new Star Wars movie?
