Ri by Anja Gruber

 A long, long time ago I wrote a fan fiction story for Star Trek and I created a character called Ri Ratan,  I sent the story to my friend Anja and asked her to do some pictures for it and for Ri she drew me.  Ri became my pen name and the rest is history. (Above is the original sketch.)

Come, Tell Me How You LiveCome, Tell Me How You Live by Agatha Christie Mallowan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is such a fun book, I read it quickly. I love learning how the archaeology worked back then and the way they explored Syria and how much fun and adventure they had.

Now to start with the tough stuff; If you read books written long ago, one thing you have to learn is to accept that they will be filled with prejudices of the time. I don’t think that Agatha was really prejudiced, she truly loved Syria and the people there, but her way of expressing herself was of that time. If you read her novels you see how they change, they become more understanding, the way she describes people becomes more modern and less prejudiced. I believe that was because of her travels and her love of learning about new people and new things. It is a lesson I learned from traveling with my parents and then on my own, if you travel open-hearted with a sense of adventure, you learn about other people and cultures and you become a more rounded person.

I see a lot of evidence of it in Agatha Christie’s writings. And I really enjoyed seeing the way Syria was way back then before the “IS” got a hold of it, and destroyed it. (which breaks my heart, I kept looking up the sites that Max was working on, to see if they were still there, most had been destroyed or mostly destroyed. His life’s work and the work of four generations of archaeologists destroyed. History does not just belong to one culture, it belongs to everyone, it is part of the historical record of the human species. To destroy it is just utterly heartless. A crime against humanity.

Now to the fun part; I loved her humor, how she made fun of herself and everyone else. The glimpse of the marriage between her and Max. The beauty of the places she went to, the marigolds, the wonderful clothes of the Kurd women, the sweetness of the people, the crazy scrapes the workers got into. The great descriptions of the archaeology at the time. (I have a lesser degree in archaeology and it was one of the reasons I really, really wanted to read this book, that plus my love of Agatha and my curiosity about Max.) The way the finds were split between the expositions and the people of the country they were in. Pretty fair really. (Not like the old days in the 1800’s where people just took stuff for their universities and museums without the permission of the country or the people. ) It is a fascinating read and I highly recommend it.

Thoughts on the loss of an Icon and my usual stuff

Please forgive this little remembrance but I have had a hard time concentrating today.  As I am sure all of you know an icon passed away today.  Leonard Nimoy has been part of our lives since the 60’s,  I was too young to images (1)watch Star Trek in its initial run but my Dad was huge fan and when he began his part of Paris in Mission Impossible I became a fan.  A few years later my cousin was in the first Star Trek movie and when I went to see him I fell in love Star Trek.  I was determined to see all the episodes which took patience and a commitment in the 70’s.  You had to wait for it to rebroadcast, no tapes, no DVDs, no DVR.  Just patiently waiting for it to play again.  I fell in love with all the characters, but Spock was special because though he was stoic he was such a vulnerable lonely man.  I felt such sympathy for him, he touched my heart.

Star Trek was the first fandom I became involved with. The first fan fictions stories I ever read was from Star Trek.  The first fan fiction stories I ever wrote was from Star Trek.  The first convention I ever attended was for Star Trek.  That was an amazing convention at the Los Angles Convention Center.  It was an anniversary of Trek, I don’t remember which one but the whole cast was on the stage.  I was so impressed, even though I was all the way in the back and they looked like tiny ants back where I was sitting.  I remember getting a soar throat  screaming and applauding Leonard Nimoy, Bill Shatner and Deforest Kelley on the stage.  I was so excited to see and hear them talk and joke.  And then Gene Roddenberry came on stage and talked about the origins of the show. Then they were all the stage chatting.  I was on cloud nine.  The next time I saw Leonard Nimoy was a smaller convention at the Burbank Hilton through Creation, He and Zachary Quinto were there to chat about and promote the new JJ Abram’s Star Trek.  It was the only time I got up close and chatted with him during the autograph period.  He was friendly and funny. He reminded me of my Dad.  I will miss him.
