Leonard Nimoy died today after a long and fruitful life. I didn’t know him. I knew his work and the characters he so richly brought to life.
He helped shaped my world view through his portrayal of Spock, and I’m a better person for it.
“Popularity is the very crumbs of greatness,” he quoted in a commencement address he delivered in 2012. He was a great actor and a fine human being, and I feel small today from the knowledge that he is gone. The world is a bit darker today.
LLAP, Mr. Nimoy. Thank you.
