Oddly I never knew much about Leonard Nimoy the person. My husband had met him once about ten years ago when he sat in front of him with his friend William Shatner. Hubs was mixing sound for a Klezmer band at the time. That was the first time I found out about his Jewish roots. Since his passing I seen some of his gorgeous photography and found out that he was a supporter of the fat activist movement.
Each time someone posts something about him I cry. I am in mourning. He was such a huge influence on the way I am. I can never thank him enough.
Astronaut Terry Virts captured this photo from the International Space Station flying over Boston, where Leonard Nimoy was born.
"May the Lord bless and keep you and may the Lord cause his countenance to shine upon you. May the Lord be gracious unto you and grant you peace." The accompanying spoken blessing, "Live long and prosper."
