The Vulcan in Me

VulcanI was confronted today with the very sad news of the great Leonard Nimoy’s passing after a short battle with a terminal lung condition; as if faced with a loving family member’s departure I faced all sorts of conflicting emotions while still at work, denial, shock and taken aback with overwhelming sadness when I finally got home and reality sunk in. I must admit that I was the first surprised by my reaction and how deeply affected I was by the news, as he seemed to be one of those people that would always be around.

As I logged in I proceeded to make my way to my friend’s memorial site for Nimoy where I paid my respects to one of the most influential personalities and TV characters of my childhood, the ever logical and cool Mr Spock. Growing up with Aspergers was not easy, and growing up not knowing I had it or how to handle it was even worse and I will be forever thankful that I had my father around to take me by the hand and try and handle it with me to the best of his abilities.

Then I discovered Star Trek and Mr Spock, I was fixated on him and his race and he somehow communicated with those around him in a way that simply made sense to me, but apparently not to anyone else; naturally and logically in my feeble 10 year old mind, I came to the undeniable conclusion that I was indeed at least half Vulcan and that this was at least based in some form of facts.

Spock was a role model, a figure I could relate to, a great influence of coming to grips with whom I was and not only reaching a level of self acceptance, but loving the fact that it didn’t matter if I was different and the world didn’t get me or seemed like a chaotic mess to me, Spock seemed to be above everything and everyone, used his logic to save the day and find a solution for the most complex tasks and related to those around him, creating ever lasting bonds of friendship that would last a lifetime and if anyone so much like me could do all of that, it was a possibility for me.

I am at a loss of words on how deeply saddened and in shock with the idea of a world without Leonard Nimoy or the original Spock in it, but if anything he left us with was his last very human and undeniable logic words “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”

So long Mr Spock, may the stars take you in the greatest journey of all and until we finally meet. Thank you for everything you gave us

    The world lost an amazing man today. May he find peace where ever he goes on his journey to the true final frontier. My husband wrote this brilliant article that everyone should take a look at.

    This is absolutely wonderful, such a poignant way to memorialize him.
    The shock and grief you’re feeling is most likely the same reaction I had to Robin Williams’ suicide…it was gut-wrenching, heartbreaking and I cried for hours…and I’ve never met the man before.
