These thoughts were on my mind this Veterans Day…
A thank you to Sarah Tidball.
I originally posted this on my Facebook page. I decided to share this with those of you who have wondered “WTF?” in regard to the lack of blog activity. This is a hint as to why … 😉
I have not fallen off the planet. The third installment of The Specialists is on the way. More after that.
I miss him already.
“A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” – Leonard Nimoy
I cannot even begin to express the pain and sense of loss I am feeling at the moment. It has taken a bit of time for me to even accept it. For those who understand, Leonard Nimoy was a part of our life. He was that rare public figure we allowed to become part of our heart and soul. We looked upon him as not just an actor, but as a friend. For those who do not understand the sense of loss millions of us are feeling today, you have missed the opportunity of sharing decades with a caring, decent, wonderful man who happened to be an actor who brought a fictional character to life enabling us to escape the mundane and experience the fantastic.
In our hearts, Leonard Nimoy will always “Live long and prosper.”
It is hard to believe it has been so long since the death of Carl Sagan. He could teach. He could make you laugh. He could make you ponder things you never pondered before. He could make you gasp in amazement. He could inspire. I miss him… humanity needs him.
The great reward for a student of history is the ongoing discovery of new evidence, new insights, new opinions. It brings life to what was.
