It was the first con I've ever been to, despite being a fan for the 30 years SW has existed. In that time, my love of SW has mostly been a solo affair(until I met my wife). Before Saturday, I've never felt quite so simpatico with another group of people gathered all in the same place for the simple love of one thing. Not at a Yankees or Dodgers game, not at a Springsteen or U2 concert, nothing. I find myself wistful and a little melancholy that I can't just jump in the car and go back downtown next Saturday and find the Convention Center frozen in time, to experience it again. But the memories I took away from the day warm my heart. All the great fans in costume, the look of wonder in the eyes of the kids....just the fact that my 4 year old daughter took to the Jedi Training Academy stage and locked plastic lightsabers with Darth Vader is enough to make me a little misty eyed with laughter and pride as I'm writing this. So, to everyone involved, thanks for a wonderful time.
