Let us not assign a value to a journey based solely on how long it took to get to our destination. Looking back upon this extraordinary experience... I have few regrets. And those would be the times when I concealed and repressed my observations and true feelings out of fear of losing a most precious person. In reflection...these have been the most creative two years ever. I was awakened to my calling again (acting and writing) and my health certainly is an example of the path I chose to follow. I wish for each of you to find the courage to go beyond your "comfort zone." Oh yes, we'll meet again and share our adventures with all that includes. And connected to the best that has been given to me by God, I feel exhilarated by all that took place and most importantly...I still believe in the Power of LOVE...

About the author (2012)

About the author: Arlene Martel is an American actor with a career spanning four decades beginning in the 1950s in New York city at the High School of Performing Arts. "I was single, celibate and accepting a life that did not include a "partner." I had known some legendary lovers and had been married to three different men (not all at the same time of course)...and thought it might be fun to expand my circle of friends. Imagine my surprise to find myself gradually ensnared in a net of love. At the time, both of us were groping through the tangle of confusion (like seaweed) in our personal lives. Yet something was becoming quite clear, compelling us to unite and face the challenges...as they inevitably would occur." Arlene Martel: "You may already know me as "T'Pring" in "Amok Time" Spock's Vulcan wife from the original Star Trek series. Or...perhaps you knew me as "Consuelo" from the Outer Limits episode of Harlan Ellison's "Demon With a Glass Hand." The fact is you have never known me as I will be revealed in these pages..." This book is part of my own true story...perhaps it's part of yours as well." Jeff Minniti: When two very different lives intersect, expect the unexpected. I learned that firsthand. I certainly never envisioned a relationship with "T'Pring." She was an iconic character on the original Star Trek series in the episode "Amok Time"... who attracted me through her palpable sensuality. She captured my attention in ways I'm sure you can imagine. I loved the way she uttered the word Specify and I was entranced by those intensely soulful eyes. Now THAT was escapism for a shy 10 year-old boy growing up in sleepy San Leandro. I never anticipated becoming a "leading man" in Arlene's life. I discovered that Arlene was as formidable in her own life as "T'Pring" was in hers. Both ran "amok" with my heart. Through a series of intimate emails, we want to share our unique relationship with you. The love...the heartache....the reawakening.
