“I am and always will be your friend” – Spock (Leonard Nimoy)

untitledWhen I was a little girl watching Star Trek, I had a secret crush on Mr. Spock.

While alien women were throwing themselves at Captain Kirk, I was drawn to his first officer.

When the rest of the crew seemed to run around fuelled by passion and chaos, Spock, the ever logical, the always calm, stepped in with his wisdom and grace.

Even in my 20s, it was my 11:30Pm ritual to watch Star Trek in bed before falling asleep.

Here, I read that: Nimoy’s fame as Spock was such that both of his autobiographies, I Am Not Spock (1975) and I Am Spock (1995), were written from the viewpoint of sharing his existence with the character. 

I am saddened by Leonard Nimoy’s passing but so grateful for the man he was, and the way he embedded himself into the character of Mr. Spock.

As seen in the video below posted by the NY Times, Leonard was also a wonderful story-teller. I invite you to learn the origin of the Vulcan greeting by clicking the link below.
