Dept. of Goodbye

 Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015

When I was 11 years old, I fell in love with Mr. Spock, for a variety of reasons. I still love him. 

It was a delight to learn over the years that the man who portrayed him, was just as remarkable a person. 

Goodbye, nostalgic, affectionate, and full of respect, to both of them

I'm happily surprised at how many people are mourning him, but I still mourn him. And I still have a crush on Spock.

I think everyone had a crush on Spock!! And I love him as Megatron when I was a child. I was (and still am) hardcore about voices - so when they changed out the voice for later Transformers movies, etc, I was pissed and wouldn't watch. LN WAS Megatron for me. And I loved Spock when I was small.

Honestly, I'm not surprised how many people mourn him. He was inspiring, he had presence and a sense of humor and it just shone through. Honestly...he was the most human of all.

*hugs you hard*

I was never a Trekkie, but I was sad to hear this news. A lot of my friends were into Trek hardcore, and I feel terribly sad for them. It's about how I'd feel if I woke up to find that Bowie or Gabriel or one of my other longtime idols/ heroes had passed away. You don't know them personally, but they're such a part of your life. When Kevin Smith, the New Zealand actor who played Ares on Hercules and Xena died in a freak accident, I was utterly gutted. He wasn't even 40 and had three young kids.

Anyway, RIP Mr. Nimoy. He'll be mourned by his legions of fans for a long time to come.

Yes. For me it felt as if a piece of the world that shaped me had been removed. I never became a hardcore trekker or trekkie, but it was undeniably and inextricably core to my identity and it nourished my insatiable hunger for SF and fantasy and science and wonder and adventure and romance and ... and ... I'm not mourning the way many are, but definitely feeling softly sorrowful.

The world is poorer.

Yes. I'm glad it was enriched by him while he was here.

He's out among the stars now.

And shining true…
