I am beginning with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and 2 because it encompasses a whole mix of strong associations for me and was a hell of a lot of fun. One association is that I identify with Starlord as a survivor of tremendous childhood tragedy, with limited and at times bizarre family type experiences. He has an edge but a good heart. He has made connections with whomever and whatever he has encountered growing up. The sense of family and closeness achieved with this oddball group is beautiful and genuine. I have alway tried to find that along the way. The conflict between the sisters – spot on. The sister’s shitty father – spot on. The music is his connection to his Mom, as with me, good times were had with Mom in the green Dodge Dart listening to AM radio in the 70s – awesome!
That’s all for now.
