I’m kind of surprised I didn’t see anything about it on this forum. Not that every single forum everywhere needs a topic about it, but that seems to be the way of things. Anyway, Leonard Nemoy died today, (or yesterday for most of you) at 83 after suffering from a long term illness. Not exactly shocking, but still kind of sad that it’s finally come to pass. For any of you who somehow don’t know. Leonard Nemoy played Spock on the original Star Trek series and movies. He’s also somewhat less famous for poetry and supporting various causes, but ultimately is a massive icon of nerd culture in general and if you don’t know who he is you better be a teenager or younger or turn in your nerd card right now.
Anyway, he sent this out on Twitter on the 22nd as he probably knew he was likely to die soon:
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP
