Leonard Nimoy’s birthday is March 26th.
I propose that he deserves a day of remembrance no less than Douglas Adams does. So let’s make it a day he’d be proud of.
I submit: IDIC day.
The philosophy of Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations, a core Vulcan tenet, was something Nimoy celebrated himself — with love and joy. He saw beauty in places many wouldn’t. He offered himself up to the world as everyone’s grandpa, if they wanted it. I’ve never heard even a rumor, even on the internet, of him being anything but kind, whenever kindness was possible.
So let’s celebrate him, and celebrate ourselves on IDIC day. Remember, and remind each other, that it’s not just things in common that are wonderful. It’s not just things in common that make us friends, that make us kin. It’s the differences we learn to love as much as our similarities that make us interesting, make us strong, and make us who we are. So we should take a day to work on that.
It’s what grandpa would have wanted.
