The Force

“What’s the Force?”

She smiled and closed her eyes for a moment, asking me to do the same. I closed my eyes. She said, “Anakin, in the quietest night, without sand-crickets or womp-rats, when the temperature is so perfect you can’t even feel your blanket, and everything is still, and your mind is quiet…even if you seal out every part of the world you feel — there is still something there.””

Yes,” I whispered.”

That is the Force, Anakin,” she said, putting her hand on my heart. “And it will never leave you. It is always there for us. It is a part of being alive.”
