Star Trek's Nimoy had such insight
Leonard Nimoy passed away last week (DebateNI, February 28). People of a certain generation remember him as Mr Spock in the 1960s TV sci-fi series Star Trek.
There often seemed to be a conflict between his human side, which would have given his emotions free reign, and his logical, Vulcan side.
This is a conflict we all deal with in life, as we strive to "live long and prosper"; in other words, to realise our full potential.
I suspect Nimoy had achieved this as an actor, director, poet and photographer. He led a fascinating life.
His last tweet days before he died contains considerable insight. He tweeted, "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."
He had his perfect moments and gave his legions of fans perfect moments all over the world.
