For those as fanatic about researching all things Leonard Nimoy as I am, his music is even a gift.
I was a ST TNG kid, but started watching TOS when I was in college. The portrayal of Spock by Leonard Nimoy struck something in me. Through that character I learned to be stoic and lock away the emotional havoc inside me. He taught me the importance of logic, and how it should be the foundation for thought and behavior.
When faced with certain situations, my thought was “What would Spock do?”
Words like "Illogical" and "Fascinating" were creeping into my daily vocabulary.
Instead of goodbye or see ya'll later, I was saying "Live Long and Prosper."
I believe that "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations is beautiful and vital to a well lived life."
Rest In Peace.
