My 10-year-old son and I are both big Star Wars fans.
For us, Star Wars Day celebrations last much longer than one day!
1. There’s the build-up – enjoying all the geeky humour on sites such as The Dork Side and Think Geek (and many others). Lots of things get recycled – but they are still amusing.
2. Then there’s the actual day – May the Fourth – we went to a Star Wars Movie Marathon. This was the first time my boy had seen the movies on the big screen.
I like to make the day special for my boy – so I started off by making Star Wars pancakes.
My Yoda got a bit burnt and looked like he was going over to the dark side.
Luckily other charred pancakes I could pass off as Luke’s aunt and uncle – or Alderaan. He got the references!
3. And just when you are having withdrawal symptoms…because we celebrate the day in Australia, before the US – on the day after, we get to enjoy all the social media stuff that comes out of the US.
Then the anticipation starts all over again!

These days, lots of people and organisations need help with how to COPE with too much work, too much information, too many meetings, delivering difficult news, business writing, effective e-mail, e-mail overload, cross-cultural communication etc. I like to help people COPE.
