FAREWELL, MR. NIMOY

Spock,_2267

 

 

 

The color of the Star Trek uniform, blue like the sky as I gazed at the contrails, pretending they were space ships. Pretending they were the Enterprise. I was 14.

I’m not sure I can go on without Spock. Without Leonard Nimoy. He has been with me always: sometimes as Spock on the big and small screen or in books or even in my dreams when I was lucky; sometimes as Mr. Nimoy, the gracious, regal, creative man who lived in quiet respect and pursuit of beauty.

“I think it’s my adventure, my trip, my journey, and I guess my attitude is, let the chips fall where they may.”

“I’m touched by the idea that when we do things that are useful and helpful, collecting these shards of spirituality, that we may be helping to bring about a healing.”

“I object to intellect without discipline; I object to power without constructive purpose.”

“That is the exploration that awaits you! Not mapping stars and studying nebula, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence.”

About Mollie Hunt

I am the crazy cat lady, animal shelter volunteer, Trekkie, and mystery writer. I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest and will watch any TV show or movie filmed here. Even though I am of a goodly age (sixty-something) I go to Star Trek conventions in costume and am not afraid to be by myself. I enjoy my life in the cat lane. Words to live by: Spay and neuter; Live long and prosper; Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
