In remembrance of Leonard on his birthday this year, I donated a copy of Fascinating: The Life of Leonard Nimoy by Richard Michelson to my local elementary school library! I happened to donate it on Leonard’s actual birth date; March 26th, which made it extra special. The librarians were very pleased with this beautiful book with its loving illustrations by Edel Rodriguez. It tells about young Leonard grew up in Boston, discovering his ambitions to be an actor and photographer, and how his faith influenced a very important part of Vulcan heritage.
I signed the book to the students and urged them to follow their dreams as Leonard did, and of course to Live Long, and Prosper! I hope the kids will enjoy it, and that Leonard’s legacy will live on with them ❤ You can buy a copy here.
The librarian was delighted!
My inscription to the kids.
I hope the kids will be inspired by Leonard’s story. (me with the book)
Hey, even bad guys need a day off! I had fun manipulating this candid picture of Leonard during his run as King Arthur in Camelot (1973) into a relaxed Mirror Spock! Maybe he’s off picnicking with evil Nurse Chapel... 🙂
Note: I added Kelinda (Barbara Bouchet) who looks even more like Celeste Yarnall! (Martha)
Here’s my most recent list of Star Trek look-alikes. Can you think of any more? You can see Parts I and II here and here. 🙂

Going through my files, I found many a picture of Leonard owned by Getty Images, so here’s a nice selection. Leonard with Susan, Performing in the 1960s, and posing for publicity pics. I never knew him, but I just miss his beautiful humanity.

The only thing that bugs me about this picture is that it’s always posted backward! (note hair is parted wrong and wedding ring on ‘right’ hand), but hey it’s still Leonard. 🙂
