Live Long & Prosper… an icon dies at 83 Leonard Nimoy -goodbye

spock

I have to admit I came sort of late to the Star Trek fanaticism – quietly then ravenously I devoured every episode until the first and original series was done. I came away with a lot of feelings about Roddenberry’s vision and the incredible collection of actors who inhabited that ‘space’… But one thing became a constant for me. While I have always been a fan of Leonard Nimoy in general, his Mr Spock became one of my most beloved favorite characters of a television series. He possessed a certain sexy nerdiness, with integrity and courage that made him an iconic figure. That’s because Nimoy knew how to manifest that special spirit- part grace part intellect. We’ll miss you so much, but now it’s time for you to boldly go where no man’s gone before in a different realm and live long and prosper there. With Love -Joey

  1. From I AM SPOCK: “Will I think of you? Only when I die…and realize that I am born again…for dying is a beginning, and I have died thousands of times, sometimes several times a day…I am learning that from each death comes a new vision of life…a new sense of the miracle of being and creation…for fear is worse than dying…fear prevents discovery, and destroys the creative flow of God-man’s soul…and when I let my old self, hardened and rigid, die…I am reborn…vital, open, and fresh…and this discovery, this victory over the fear of death came when I thought I was dead, and found you…so each time I rise out of the ashes of my fear, I will gratefully think of you.”

    1. Beautiful. I was so in love with the character of SPOCK: he was so real for me… and that shows how incredible Nimoy was in manifesting that persona. I loved both the iconic character and the actor. Thank you for leaving this incredible quotation –cheers Joey
