Tears of a clown

I am somehow very sad today at the loss of a man, a father, a husband and an artist.

williamsThis loss touches me in a number of ways

  1. enjoyed much of his art – Mork & Mindy and Awakenings were highlights
  2. there is a quirky family resemblance and a funny story to go with that
  3. a family friend took their life through this most agressive and defiant way of ending it all
  4. I experienced seasons of functional depression during my teen years
  5. I experienced a long season of deep reactive depression in my early twenties
  6. I wish Robin could have experienced the life, love and liberty of Jesus of Nazareth without which I would not be here – but gone – in my early twenties
  7. I’ll never forget Nano Nano
