In the early 1970s, George and Marcia Lucas purchased a home in San Anselmo, in Northern California. He’s lived in the town of San Anselmo for nearly 50 years.

In part three, they dive into a phrase Caitlin is super obsessed with: “breadth of play.” What does that mean? Then, Caitlin talks about the concept of Wabi-Sabi and Mono No Aware and how they contribute to the Star Wars Feeling. All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers.

Part 3 of 3. Our summer series on Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to a close with our finale episode all about Obi-Wan embodying the tarot card figure of “The Hanged Man.” What does that mean and how can we consider Obi-Wan as this figure? Caitlin and Charlotte discuss Kenobi as a spiritual figure, his personal tragedies, how he stands between the living and spiritual world, Obi-Wan as a sacrificial figure, comparisons to Ben Solo, and much more.

Part 2 of 3. Our summer series focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi continues! Charlotte and Caitlin continue to examine the character through the archetype of “the hermit.” How does is Obi-Wan a guide to characters such as Anakin and Luke and even Ezra? In what ways is he a work in progress? How does Obi-Wan embody that figure? In which ways does he defer? We discuss how Obi-Wan is introspective and whether or not he is even allowed to be so. All this and more on this episode.
