Signs of Winter and Spock...Illogical and Logical Ends

Signs of Winter and Spock...
Signs of Winter and Spock blog entry by Caroline Bock author of Before My Eyes-We have run out of official school snow days. We are now onto adding days to summer vacation. The snow/ice/freezing temperatures must, therefore, logically end. This is, of course,  an illogical argument.
 
-Logic, the realm of Mr. Spock, is dead. We live in an irrational world. I’m trying to connect this to winter, and perhaps this is a way: he was a character who lived on in our imaginations, and certainly, in the Star Trek sagas, brought back to life over and again to reassert that logic can survive our human frailties.

For one brief moment, we believe winter will never end, and then, with wind and rains and warmth, the earth is restored. Spring will rise, even if we refuse to believe it amid the threatening snow and ice, even if we are illogical, irrational creatures.
 
Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy.
 
Live long and prosper.
 
Spring is soon.  --Caroline
