May the Force be with You

I won this Star Wars postcard from a lottery hosted by Kristin at the Postcrossing Forum.  I'm a big fan of the movie series so you can just imagine my reaction when I found out that I won.

It took quite a while before the postcard reached my mailbox.  I was afraid it has gotten lost.  Fortunately, it was worth the wait!

The postcard features Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, played by Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher.  In the background are Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala, played by Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman in the latter films.  It's a family picture, after all.  If you are a Star Wars fan, you'd know that Luke and Leia are twins separated at birth.  They are the children of Anakin, who later assumed the identity of Darth Vader, and Queen Amidala, who died right after giving birth to the twins.

May the force be with you...

Wishing you happy journeys...
