A PERSON’S LEGACY

I went to see The Greatest Showman tonight and it made me think of The Man Who Invented Christmas. Comparing these two films gave me an epiphany. The price of creating a legacy that will last until the end of time is high beyond measure. I am not just talking about financial price. I am also talking about the social and spiritual prices. Many pay the price and end up destroying themselves, never getting another chance. Some pay the price and destroy themselves and those around them, but their legacy and names will live on. Both P.T. Barnum and Charles Dickens created legacies that changed the world into what it is today, but almost destroyed their relationships with their families and loved ones as well as facing financial ruin. There are a rare few who do not pay the high price all at once, but gradually over time. I would say that I am one of those rare few who creates a perfect balance of paying the price yet maintaining my relationships at the same time. The road to an ultimate legacy is longer, but it reduces the risk of me destroying myself and it has worked out well for me so far.

STAR WARS: KYLO REN AND SUPREME LEADER SNOKE

Kylo Ren:Snoke

I found this concept art of Kylo Ren and Supreme Leader Snoke’s appearance in The Last Jedi. Based on this picture, it is clear that Supreme Leader Snoke likes to dress in more rich and regal garb compared to Emperor Palpatine such as red and gold robes and a ring that may have a black kyber crystal. Kylo Ren’s new look makes him look more like his grandfather, Darth Vader. He is wearing a full cape instead of his short tattered cloak.  I look forward to seeing these two lords of darkness in all their sinister glory when The Last Jedi comes out.

FLANGED MACE

Another common medieval weapon was the mace, which was a powerful bludgeoning weapon that was strong enough to crush armor with a single swing. I prefer the flanged design like the one in this picture instead of the spiked design because the flanged design could cause more damage to armor than the spiked design. I am thinking of making it the weapon of choice of one of the major characters in my fantasy, who is the heir of a long lineage of formidable knights.
