I was asked to comment on mm’s application where she had to write a personality sketch. There was one paragraph where I knew what she wanted to say, but she didn’t articulate it as well. She was writing about how meditation enabled her to expand her self-view and to acknowledge that she has flaws like everyone else. I commented that talking about her “dark” side made her sound like Darth Vader and since it’s a school application, may be rewrite using more positive wording.
She called me and we had a good laugh about it. I mean, say dark side and I immediately think about Anakin. Plus the association with meditation put the image of Vader in his meditation chamber immediately in my head.
Now I have to go and find a lego vader keychain to give to her.
