Leonard Nimoy’s Last Tweet

Leonard Nimoy died in 2015. His last tweet, sent a few days before his death, read: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” That is truly beautiful. So often we buy stuff to try to be happy, but really, happiness comes from our experiences. Now, that experience might be the joy of buying or owning something, but far more often it is the memory of a happy time. Keepsakes seldom have inherent value, because their real value is in the memories they invoke. So let’s make more memories and buy less stuff.
