Ovation: Robin Williams (1951-2014)


Robin WilliamsI told myself that I wasn’t going to write about the death of Robin Williams.  It’s terribly sad when someone so gifted becomes lost in a cloud of darkness from which he can see no way out.  But then I remembered these few seconds of his performance in 1996’s The Birdcage and the dozens of times that this little bit  of joy has made me smile and I thought maybe someone else could use one of those smiles today.

Sadly, sometimes the worst thing you can do is “keep it all inside”.  You don’t have to.

To honor Robin Williams, please share the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number:


Your call is free and confidential, and will be answered by a trained counselor at a local crisis center.

  1. Reblogged this on Sherrie Theriault's Blog and commented:
    I’m so sad and I didn’t know what to say, but this says it all, thank you.


  2. Like you, I am saddened to see such a talented and tormented soul end his life. He meant so much to so many. To be able to act with such emotion in movies like Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting and Awakenings and then to see him so uproariously funny in other movies and on stage. The ad-libbing in Good Morning Vietnam and Aladdin are priceless. Thanks for sharing the suicide prevention information. BTG
