Trek Thanksgiving – Five TOS Things I’m Grateful For.

Hi Everyone!   It’s been a couple of crazy weeks for me, for I went through an awful bout of pneumonia!  Happy to report that I am well recovered now, and just happy to be back to my normal silly self again!

Tomorrow here in the USA, it’s Thanksgiving. I’m baking some pies today and will make some nice turkey and fixings on Thursday.  But in the meantime I thought it would be fun to recall five things about Star Trek TOS that I’m grateful for.  Any of your favorites here?  Be sure to add yours in the comment section.  And for all our friends celebrating, Have a Happy And Safe Thanksgiving! ❤

Here Goes:

  • #5: Gene Roddenberry’s Vision.                                                                  Where it all began.  In the fertile mind of Gene Roddenberry, the beginnings of a world where Earth lives in peace, harmony, and diversity.  A dream we all still strive for and will ever hope to achieve.  Maybe someday.
  • 4: Dr. McCoy’s Baby Blues
  • If ever I was sick in TOS Universe,  nothing would calm me better than the warm blue eyes and calm bedside manner of dear ol’ Bones.                                                                                                                      
  • 3: Bill Theiss’s remarkable fashion design

 

Who knew the future would be so colorful?  The glorious designs of William Ware Theiss not only implied a brighter future, but were often just bits of fabric pinned together!  Theiss was a genius who inspires many to this day. (Me too; I make doll clothes!)

  • 2: Kirk standing up for Humanity. 

 

Kirk was well aware of Humanity’s flaws, but that never let that stop him from defending (and saving) the Human race from total destruction.  Kirk has faith in the good of Humanity, and will always fight for it. May we all be examples of best in Humanity; Love, Respect, and Caring.  And finally…

  • 1:  Just Spock, Wonderful Spock.
  • Of course, you know I’m a fool for that Vulcan.  But Spock so much more than just a cool character.  To me, Spock is so much of what Star Trek is about. the outsider trying to fit in.  How many of  us grew up identifying with Spock because we often felt the misfits in our world?  Spock showed us that we could and would manage well if we just stayed true to ourselves, but also be caring and loyal to our family and friends. Every Trek series has an outsider/Spock character in it, but this Vulcan was the first, and probably the most beloved.

Thinking of Leonard Nimoy.

It’s astonishing how much one life can affect so many others. ❤

As I write this, the hero of my childhood, my major adolescent crush, a man I’ve never known personally but have loved for 40+ years is recovering from severe chest pains that happened last Thursday (February 19th).   Leonard Nimoy is one of the most creative, passionate, caring, and most marvelous humans of the last century, and I am so thankful for all the little areas of my life he has unknowingly touched with his charm, intelligence, and that beautiful laugh.

Mr. Nimoy is, of course, a very private man, and he deserves his privacy during this hard time.  But I truly hope that he is aware of and surrounded by all the love of his family, friends, and fans.  The fact that he is tweeting some of his poetry is his way of comforting us, and letting him know he’s still here.

The Beatles sang the words,  “…And in the End, the Love you take is equal to the love you make”.   Leonard is a true Renaissance man. He has given so much of his love and soul to the world, and I know when the time comes for him to fly from this mortal coil, his love will be returned a thousand-fold.  Let’s hope that’s still not for a while, for many hearts will break that day.  But what a blessing to know such a man, if only through his work.

Leonard wrote in his poem, You and I Have Learned, the following:

The miracle is this The more we share… The more we have.

Every year, Leonard has shared more and more of himself with his public; and he truly has more of that love back every day.

Leonard, as a tiny representative of your admirers all over the world, I must Thank You for all the beauty and joy you have given us with your life.  You have touched our hearts and souls deeply, and you are so greatly loved.  We send you all our love and strong healing thoughts.  Thank you for taking a quick moment to get your picture taken with this ol’ smitten Trekkie in 2013. Thank you for being one of the happy places in my heart.  Please get well soon! Love, Therese Bohn

Hi Everybody!

Hi All! Hope all my followers in the U.S. had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday!  For all the rest of the world, I hope you take a little moment every day to count all our blessings. So many little things to be thankful for; love of family and friends, a hot meal, and just a few minutes to b-r-e-a-t-h-e.

And now that the Christmas Shopping has officially begun, just remember that the greatest gift you can give is your time and friendship.  The best things in life are truly free! ❤

Here, have some Turkey!
