“Share a picture that makes you Nostalgic.“

Is it possible to be nostalgic for the Future? 40 years ago a resident of our town had an idea for a movie that transported us to a Galaxy far, far away. In the intervening years that single idea spawned a revolution in movie-making and in the way in which we watch them.
Two days before his wedding, George Lucas unveiled Imagination Park in downtown San Anselmo. The park features bronze statues of Yoda and Indiana Jones, reminders that both movies were locally created, and in the case of Star Wars, filmed here.
Consider this my “Thank you” to Mr. Lucas for his philanthropic efforts and his vision to employ people with the imagination, talent and ability to make us yearn to return to places that we have never been.
