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.
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..:
