Emotional Suppression

I feel a desperate need to write now. To say something about Leonard Nimoy's passing.

It's going to take a little time, though. I'm writing and deleting words and sentences and paragraphs over and over.

Until then, I'll say the same thing I said earlier today when I first heard--the lines from Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities which Kirk utters after Spock's death in The Wrath of Khan:

It is far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.

A few past Spock posts:
