Live Long and Prosper

A few years ago I sat with a piece of paper in front of me and wrote two words: Hero Adventure and Space Adventure. I decided that these were the two areas of fiction that I from all of my reading, movie watching and fandom I was best suited to write my first novel about. Of course I circled Hero Adventure and thus the story (eventually) of the Grey Ghost was born. However it is not like Space Adventure has ever slipped away from my consciousness. For those who know me and my day job, SPACE is in the forefront of my daily life. And not to sound too nerdy but a catalyst to this grand adventure I’m on was the TV show Star Trek. There was a spark ignited many years ago that burns still today in a young me once I watched the crew of the Enterprise boldly going where no one has gone before. Sadly as many of you know today we lost the amazing actor Lenard Nimoy who played Mr. Spock, a character that I loved from the moment I saw my first episode. I’m saddened by the fact I won’t be able to see the eye brow raised on screen anymore but heartened by the idea that the fictional character of Spock will outlive Mr. Nimoy inspiring generations of kids to come. RIP Mr. Nimoy or in better terms “LIVE LONG AND PROSPER”
