A Salute for Leonard Nimoy: _\\//

I appreciate that, about 4:45 today as I left the office, this took place:

Me (to a Co-Worker): Peace and long life.

Co-Worker: ...I'm really sad about Leonard Nimoy.

Me: Me, too.

We're not the only ones. To everyone else feeling that: *hugs* Dammit, hugs are logical.

I'm not sure I have much to say that hasn't been said yet; still, I want to say good thoughts, and he deserves good thoughts. I am glad I have never heard anyone be harsh about Nimoy. I am glad he seemed so consistently well-liked. I am glad he found work of all kinds, as an actor, director, photographer, writer and more. I am glad he got to show Spock's smart-assed sense of humor again in the 2009 Star Trek, which I remain goofily fond of. I am glad he seemed so good-humored, and proud of his work, his life and his heritage. Heck, Nimoy was perhaps my first exposure to actual details about Judaism, with his story about peeking while in his synagogue and seeing the two-handed gesture that, years later, inspired the Vulcan salute.

Leonard Nimoy's had a long life. I hope he found peace.
