Spock and Olives

"And Yet it Moves."  Galileo Galilei

In Star Trek, Spock is the intergalactic equivalent to an elf in Peter Jackson's Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. . . in my opinion. He is my favorite character in the series. He never lost his head and he usually saved the day when Captain Kirk lost his--which repeatedly occurred any time a female walked into his view.

This Spring, Bob and I started the Star Trek Voyager series on a bit of a whim: the series was on Amazon Prime and had a female Captain--the only female captain in the entire series. We are now halfway through the second season and enjoying the programs immensely with their strong female leads.

So we crash land on my twin bed with plenty of pillows, a tricorder in the form of a Kindle, and a jar of replicated green olives stuffed with feta from the mess hall as we continue our journey 70,000 light years from home. Forty-five minutes later, we are back home again with a laugh, a Vulcan salute, and few less olives.
