“May the force be with you.”

The Odyssey, an epic adventure by the blind Greek poet, Homer, toys with all of the human emotions. Additionally, this timeless story also relates to many blockbuster hits seen during this century. Star Wars, in itself is an odyssey out in the depths of space similarly we have Space Odyssey 2001, Kon Tiki, Apollo 13, Forrest Gump, and many others. The Odyssey, is an adventure, nothing more unless one lives it. When an individual really becomes the lead character such as Odysseus, Luke Skywalker, or Indiana Jones, it does become more than a drama and adventurous story. It becomes real, and part of you. Something one will cherish forever. That is what The Odyssey in itself is. So now join with us as we travel into the heart of Homer’s Odyssey.
