ROBIN WILLIAMS ON ALCOHOLICS

I haven’t had it in me to take on the terrifying task of piecing together thoughts on Robin’s passing. I might not ever post about it, but I’m grateful for his legacy and that his humor lives on.

  1. I hope you do post your thoughts and feelings on Robin Williams’ death. I (and I’m sure many others) would like to read them. The video was hilarious…..and sad at the same time.

  2. Yeah that would be hard to do and I think everyone feels the same about him even more so in his passing, that he was a genius at making others laugh at him & themselves… Happy trails my friend & thanks for the memories!

  3. John,

    Sometimes refraining to say anything says it all There is a dignity and respect to silence, especially when the loss is so fresh and profound. Did I know him? Of course not.. Did I marvel at his versatility as an actor, comedian and Academy Award winner..of course.

    I’m 39 years old and before I, or the world knew of his genius, I was enamored with Mork and Mindy at age 5. I had a pleather belt with his distorted likeness (bought at K-Mart) on it and a plush pull string doll with 4 or 5 of his catchphrases.

    As a awkward, struggling Freshman in High School I longed to be in The Dead Poet’s Society…

    I could go on but at the end of the day, I think I identified with his humor, sadness, addiction, mania, need for acceptance and humility.

    NaNo-NaNo Robin, you touched so many lives.
    Rest In Everlasting Peace.
