Well it's been a week now and I'm recovering from my loss. I knew Leonard Nimoy had been ill and taken to the hospital so it really wasn't a complete shock. That evening I went again to see Baba Brinkman, the atheist rapper, perform in his Rap Guide to Religion
and he mentioned Nimoy's passing in the show. It's incredible how many people also feel his loss and the variety: fans, performers, scientists, astronauts and the president. He will live long in our memories.
Tonight we "spring ahead" and the temperature here is starting to rise into the 40s and 50s...finally. I prefer winter to summer as one can always add another layer of clothing in winter while in summer there's just so much one can remove. This winter was as bad as last winter and back then we all thought we'd have a lousy summer but it was really a very nice one - I hope it's the same this year *fingers crossed*
