My Friend Leonard

I was unexpectedly saddened by Leonard Nimoy's death. I mean, I didn't know him personally or anything. But I really loved the original Star Trek, and all of its cast. They were all so different, different cultures and attitudes, yet they worked together to do extraordinary things. Poor Spock had to put up with this horny idiot Kirk being in charge all of the time, when he would have done a much better job, and yet he never took anything personally. He was like "the Four Agreements" personified. The good of the many over the good of the one. 
I do realize that Leonard Nimoy was an actor who played Spock and many other roles. Leonard Nimoy was not actually Spock. But, by all accounts, he was someone who embodied the same beliefs and values, minus the pointy ears. He was Jewish, not Volcan. And he was very kind to his fans, of whom I was one.

Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. I'm not a religious gal, but I'm 99% sure you're sharing a campfire now with DeForest Kelley, somewhere in the heavens... And he's saying, "I'm a doctor, not an angel!"


  1. Spock was a visionary character - the first TV alien who was morally superior to the humans. Apparently a lot of women found him attractive - check out the comments to this post:

  2. "I think Spoc's appeal to the ladies was his total lack of emotion, enthusiasm and interest in them. This appeal is the most powerful" LOL! True.
