Clara sometimes asks me if I dream. “Of course I dream”, I tell her. “Everybody dreams”. “But what do you dream about?,” she’ll ask. “The same thing everybody dreams about,” I tell her. “I dream about where I’m going.” She always laughs at that. “But you’re not going anywhere, you’re just wandering about.” That’s not true. Not anymore. I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone’s. It’s taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I’m going. Where I’ve always been going. Home. The long way around.

Dear, sweet Mama,
I am writing you such a long letter before dinner on purpose. I want to talk to you on the telephone after dinner, may I? I really want to…. I hope that when we come you will be already feeling better. Mama, I won’t make jokes with the officers. I will try to be gay and not show I was crying. Tell me when are you going to have dinner? Sleep well and be healthy, take care of yourself. Loving you with all my heart and soul.

Pursued by the Empire’s sinister agents, Princess Leia races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy…
