Y: Yoda



Talked about Darth Vader I have, earlier in the month. Another tribute to George Lucas's story telling, it is.

Yoda. The ultimate teacher, the synonym of 'mentor'. I loved the portrayal of this all powerful Jedi. Small, large eared. Speaking in a Yodic syntax. He has trained many a Jedi before young Luke Skywalker, his last. 
I have loved watching Empire Strikes Back. I've watched this movie countless time but still I wait for the scene where Luke is trying to raise his ship from the depths of the murky swamp where it has sunk. Luke sighs. "I'll try"
"No. Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try."
Priceless advice.
