I usually don’t pay attention to, nor care about, anything involving celebrities. Today I am making an exception.
Yesterday we lost one of our most brilliant artists- Robin Williams was found dead of an apparent suicide. The world seems just a little bit darker today, and I imagine that anyone who has been uplifted by his genius would feel a sense of loss and sadness today.
Aside from his warp-speed mind, and his dizzyingly quick improvisation, he imparted a great sense of humanity to everything that he did. One couldn’t be entertained by his mercurial humor and not be inspired by the tremendous ‘heart’ that went along with it. I would always feel uplifted, even inspired, after laughing my a** off! Movies like “Good Morning Vietnam” and “Patch Adams” made me laugh and brought me a measure of happiness, but also offered me a sense of hope, of humanity.
Peace be upon you at last, brother.
You will be sorely missed.
