Sometimes life comes together in surprising ways.

Earlier this month at Star Trek: Mission New York, I had the opportunity to work with Julie Nimoy, Leonard Nimoy's daughter, and help her tell the story of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the illness that took her father's life. She was generous, courageous, and wanted to do everything she could to ensure others don't suffer the way her father did. We shared stories about her father and she loved hearing about the impact he had on my life.

It was a wonderful moment in time that I will cherish. 

Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy as Spock Prime,  Star Trek  (2009)

On February 27th, Leonard Nimoy died at the age of 83.

I was heartbroken. 

He was an actor, director, poet, singer, and photographer.

But we’ll always be remember him as Spock.

Today on THE PSYCH SHOW I remember the life of Leonard Nimoy and celebrate the psychology of Spock.
