Finding pain with Robin Williams


Celebrity deaths are interesting.. Some say how can you care so much about this one person when there is many dying every day.

I tend not to care about what some say.  

I cant help but breathe funny, somewhat scatterbrained, questionable.

I received a text message from my brother about the passing of Robin Williams. I think everything in my body stopped working for a second, it may have been different if it were natural causes but regardless it has had me thinking very hard ever since I unlocked my iphone to read that text.  

Creatives tend to have issues deep inside, sometimes they creep out and sometimes issues stay hidden and locked forever. I've come to learn that being a creative when you are beyond in it where you live love eat breathe  sleep your passion, there is also unfulfillment pain doubt failure dreams disappointments. Finding a balance is key, maintaining that balance isn't always easy.  

The creative Robin Williams is a one of without a doubt. 

 From the kid that is still inside me who enjoyed the classic films that he is best known for to the adult that I am now who had just last year was introduced to the film 'Toys' which blew my mind.

And remaining a creative into my older years who may be fighting my own type of demons will never forget who Robin Williams is and what he has done creatively.

Even the funniest man has a breaking point, only thing we can do is strive to better ourselves which as we all know is a never ending task.

Thank you for making me laugh from my childhood and beyond.
