A sad loss

A little less than forty years ago, when I was just a young lad, I came across something that was completely new to me, science fiction. It came in the form of a television repeat called Star Trek. I had never seen anything like it before. The idea of traveling through space, warring with alien life forms and so much more was opened to me. My love for sci-fi came out of a 13 inch black and white television screen.

One of the characters on the show was a pointed ear alien named Mr. Spock. I always admired the character and the man who played him. This morning we lost this great actor, artist and poet.

Leonard Nimoy passed away this morning due to complications with COPD. Just days ago he posted on his Twitter feed these words.

“”A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”

Good bye Mr. Nimoy. You lived long and you prospered.


Hi, My name is Jamie Dodge. I am a full time writer and a full time caregiver. I generally write science fiction, but will dabble in almost anything, I can't write romance to save my life. I was born and raised in Central Florida into a large Italian family. The youngest by four years I had the advantage of being taught to read by the time I was 3. I don't think a day had gone by since then, where I haven't had a book in my hands at some point. One day I figured I would try my hand at it, so I wrote my first novel, The Forgotten Edge. I always get asked why I use the profile picture I do. I wish I could tell you, but I can't. It is a promise I made a few years ago, and I will honor it until I am given permission not to. That's it. That's me. I hope you enjoy my ramblings about my writing process and the other things that I find interesting.
