February #Wrapup

This has been a fast, but lazy month. I only finished one book on my To-Be-Read list (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes vol. 3), struck up an editing deal, got the paperwork completed for me to start classes Monday and wrote the first of many musical reviews.

Book cover

I finished reading and reviewing The Road of Darkness by Zoe Ambler. Read and reviewed Alex Apostol’s Hunted Angel, and two Author Spotlight Interviews. As for my personal writing…I worked a little on two of my books but ultimately did not get much done. Stupid voices are quiet…wonder what they are up to.

Sure, there were a few weeks where it…

“LIVE LONG AND PROSPER”

The Vulcan greeting and the finger-separating hand gesture that accompanies it first appeared in the second season of Star Trek: The Original Series, during an episode titled “Amok Time.” Spock himself (actor Leonard Nimoy) has made no secret of the fact that the gesture and phrase were his idea, and that he based them on Orthodox Jewish blessings he remembered from his childhood. In the Jewish blessing, the position of the fingers forms the Hebrew letter “Shin,” which represents the name “Shaddai” (Almighty God). Nimoy put his own spin on the traditional gesture by holding up just one hand (instead of both) and changing
