As I am writing about Leonard Nimoy, known as Spock in Star Trek, butterflies fill my heart and soul. We lost a great human being, today.
Leonard Nimoy has died at the age of 83, confirmed by his wife Susan Bay Nimoy, of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease this Friday morning. Last year, the actor revealed he was suffering from chronic lung disease, despite stopping smoking more than 20 yrs ago. He was taken to hospital February 19th after suffering chest pains.
Personally, what I recognized in his multi-faceted array of talents was his voice. Leonard Nimoy had an ability to intrigue anyone’s curiosity with his fascinating tongue, a voice unlike anyone. Yes, I will also miss Spock, a character that precedes my existence and its always fresh, I will never have the opportunity to capture his headshots either.
Leonard, say hello to my Father. Thank you for your great work to humanity,
