When I was a kid I loved Star Trek, and Spock was a great influence on me growing up. I never wanted to be Kirk or Bones. They didn’t have the mental skill and control that Spock had. I was always attracted to characters that could carry out things by using mind over matter. This is the same reason I like Batman more than Superman or other superpower heroes.
As a kid, handling things more logically than emotionally was one of the things I try to emulate by watching Spock. I was mostly unsuccessful though. 😉 He was my favorite Star Trek character of all the Star Trek series and movies.
Leonard Nimoy was a great actor and artist. He did more than just acting. He wrote and directed movies, was a successful photographer, and voice actor.
Live Long And Prosper
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP—
