This is a really wonderful interview with Leonard Nimoy talking about growing up in the West End of Boston. ❤ I especially like when he describes losing his accent and getting Sea Hunt work from Lloyd Bridges, and when he discusses how he identified with Spock. From 2014.
A friend on Facebook posted these (Thanks Glo!). She had these pictures from a friend of hers who happened to be in Leonard’s old Boston neighborhood in the ’70’s when he was visiting his Mom! You can see his mom Dora in the 1st picture with from the back getting into the car. Ever gracious, Leonard smiles for the fan in the second picture. ❤
Thinking of Boston today as they run their triumphant Boston Marathon and slowly heal the wounds of last year’s attack. Boston has been through many changes, but it will always be Boston Strong. Here’s a portion of a wonderful interview where Leonard remembers the long lost West End Boston of his youth:
(Sorry I’m late today, getting over a bad head cold. Hope you had a nice holiday weekend!)
Can you spot Leonard here with his High School buddies?
’cause I love that muddy water. oh Boston, you’re my home’
I just wanted to take a moment to reflect and pray for all of the victims of the bombings at the Boston Marathon today. I’m speechless. Pray for peace here and in the whole world.
