    In Memoriam

    Robin Williams

     

    Well its obvious everyone has their words and thoughts on Robin Williams; mine are he is irreplaceable, its ok to be yourself, and we all are human with imperfection. No matter if popular or the common guy down the street nobody is perfect, we all carry the invisible crosses to bare. Like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley, Chris Farley, and many unknown others; they wore a good mask to be accepted, to be loved and cherished. Through their craft it gave them hope to share their uniqueness and to express themselves.

     

    But when the spotlight is not there and the crowds are gone they are alone polarized as a product of culture. The loneliness is too unbearable to deal with. With a audience they are on fire; one on one they are as cold as the stranger on the elevator at unease to be a everyday social person, due to their sadness. The irony the people we love so much for entertainment are so tormented and sad when the camera is off at times. We forget they are just like us human being's trying to make sense of their lives.

     

    We loved them all, especially him for bringing us joy into our family homes over the many years. Who will ever forget about Mork and Mindy a fresh improvised tv show in the 1970's were almost no script was used and it was streams of comedic consciousness flowing. The awe inspiring acting in "Good Will Hunting" were it just cut to the core of you're being. The memorizing "One Hour Photo"! The list goes on and on. Its beyond comprehension that hes gone. He reminds me of a honest simpler time were a night around the tv, lots of laughs and each other were a common experience and not the exception.

     

    Robin Williams grew up in Bloomfield Hills Michigan; he lived over by Long Lake Road and Telegraph, before he left for Julliard in New York. I still think the Sky was crying in Michigan for Robin on Monday a cosmic belly hole where his laughter and smile that have been silenced. Billy Crystal said "No Words" as a initial response to the news; my words and thoughts are just a session of "Cathartic Therapy"...R.I.P. (Return if Possible)..
