Thank you for everything.
Bangarang, Peter Pan.
Seriously, in shock
I’m still reeling over the news. Another comedy genius lost to us. God, I’m going to miss him.
Geez! How awful! 🙁
Another great one gone too soon. Yes,RIP Robin Williams.
Sad, sad, sad.
O Captain, My Captain!
When I saw the first moments of the report of Robin’s passing on television out the corner of my eye and realized what it was I felt the most dreadful chill. It hardly seems possible but then I recall the sadness in this very funny and talented man’s eyes. All of his gifts couldn’t give him succour in the end which is such a tragedy. I feel so for him and his family. I hope he has found peace now, and that they will in time too.
Oh, these are dark times. We must remember Robin at his best: as a whirlwind of comedic invention and unpredictability on stage, as Mork to Pam Dawber’s Mindy McConnell in Mork & Mindy, as a fantastic Popeye in Robert Altman’s underrated and weird adaptation, as a defector in Moscow on the Hudson, as Garp in The World According to…, as Adrian Cronauer shouting GOOD MOOORNIIIINNGG VIET-NAAAM, as an inspirational teacher in Dead Poets Society, being heart-breaking in just a few moments with a teddy bear in Spielberg’s otherwise misjudged Hook… I’m certain others could mention dozens more. His talent was great and he gave such pleasure to people though the weight of the World and the pressures of the passing of Time became too much. It’s a reminder to all of the complexity of things and the struggle against the dark that some of us go through. Mr Williams’s magic and memory will go on but it is sobering that he could was at the end unable to find total happiness or contentment.
Rest now, Robin.
Orson calling Mork, Orson calling Mork, it’s time to come Home…
Beautifully put, Mr. K.

“… we defy augury. There’s a special
providence in the fall of a sparrow. If it be now,
’tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be
now; if it be not now, yet it will come:
the readiness is all…”
The man who illuminated and reflected all of human experience… Hat tip to you and William Shakespeare.
