Becca and Devon are back, and this time they're going to be discussing the "other Skywalker." Yes, search your feelings. You know it to be true. So, sit back and enjoy the discussion on our beloved Princess, now General of the Resistance, Leia Organa.

In "The Empire Strikes Back," Yoda says to Kenobi, “No. There is another.” This brief moment has always resonated because it shows that all along, Yoda has always had a "B Plan" in place in case Luke followed in Daddy's footsteps. There is another Skywalker. Leia.

Remember, according to Yoda, Luke was reckless. Always daydreaming; looking away to the future and never had his mind on what he was doing or where he was. So, I wonder, was Yoda watching Leia all this time too? Watching her become a strong leader. Smart with the ability to strategize and make tough choices during a crisis.

Thinking of the tie-in with "Rogue One" to "A New Hope," Leia succeeded in bringing Hope (the Death Star plans to the Alliance). Perhaps Yoda was thinking: Leia should've been Plan A? Or, was he saving the best for last?

What has Star Wars taught me? That's a loaded question. Perhaps, the better question is: what hasn't Star Wars taught me?

As the sun sets, there is something so captivating it's almost theatrical. Symbolically, this splashy array of vibrant coloration displays a state of vulnerability. It’s a moment of significant contrast between light and darkness, between consciousness and unconsciousness; the hour of Twilight

Whether it be a sunset or a sunrise, it is a moment of transition. A personal reflection...
