This past Friday, the world was informed media wide of the passing of famous and most talented actor and artist, Leonard Nemoy.
 
We all spent a lot of time with Mr. Nemoy, fans especially, even if it was looking at him from behind a big canvas or television screen.  Personally, I remember going with my family to the movie theatres back in the 80s for the Star Trek Movie Series.  From time to time, I would catch the earlier television shows late at night.  We watched the movies religiously as soon as they appeared on the big screen, just as everyone else.
 
Nemoy's most famous trademark was, is, and always will be the hand gesture which originates back to the Holy Temple of Jerusalem when the High Priests would give their blessings of peace to the Israelites.  People think of the hand gesture as being Vulcan, but it is actually - Jewish.  Being proud of his Jewish background, Nemoy chose that very hand gesture and those same sentiments that would be blessed to many people, as  a reflection of those same wishes and sentiments.
 
In his last statement on Twitter, he tweeted:
 
"A life is like a garden. 
Perfect moments can be had,
but not preserved,
except in memory. 
 LLAP"
 
He is very right.  Live life for each moment and cherish the great memories.  We come in this world, each of us, for a purpose.  We fulfill them with flying colors, then once they are fulfilled, we leave, whether we choose to stay or not.  Our legacies, however, will live on in memory.
 
A scene that will forever live in many people's minds..:

His asset, memory, and the legacy he left will live long and prosper.
 
Mr. Nemoy,
 
Thank you for the many years and your many talents.  Your contributions to the entertainment industry and the artistic community were, are, and their legacy, paramount.  May your soul raise to the highest levels and rest peacefully in the Garden of Eden, while your family, friends, and fans be comforted as those in Jerusalem and Zion.

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

Flight For Sanity

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…

Second To The Right

Second To The Right by Zach Neuman
Genre: Fantasy Rating 5 Stars

To the other orphans, it was paradise.  To David, it was a prison.  Behind the dark walls and black bars where Latin might as well have been the official language, David knew that his fate was sealed with a seal that he knew he had to break and break quickly.  He was determined to see the sunlight that was being blocked by the walls of St. Augustine's.  Father Kenneth gave him the throttle for his plan to escape - to take off.
What lay outside of those walls he was trapped behind was an unforgiving world to which he would have to learn new skills in order to survive.  Skills which in his wildest dreams he never thought he would never have to learn, nor use.
What was most enjoyable about this book is the fact that the story about David's determination relates to many aspects of some of my personal life journeys.  Some of these journeys I have written about before, others, I will leave to your imagination as to what t…
