Actor, Writer, and comedy person

I, like absolutely every single other person that I know, have been so deeply saddened by the passing of Robin Williams. He was a treasure. A gift. So extraordinary in his ability to make us feel every range of emotion, because he felt so much in that beautiful heart of his. It hurts to feel so much so deeply, and I’m grateful that he now has peace. I’m sad because, like absolutely every single person that I know, I wanted 63 more years of laughter, tears, and inspiration from this generous, loving, and kind man. 
I’ve been seeking solace in the endless amounts of YouTube content of his comedy, interviews, and improv. I’ve been seeking solace in all the amazing stories of the comedians and improvisors in my life who had such incredible personal experiences with this legendary man. And I’ve been seeking solace in reading articles from the past with his powerful words on life, creativity, and humanity. 
I love this portrait of him, taken by Peggy Sirato for a Parade Magazine article last September, where I found this quote on his writing process and creativity in general. I’m gonna hurry out and go buy myself a pack of “big yellow legal notepads” and enjoy the journey he’s inspired me to take.
“You have to access things that normally you wouldn’t. You find things that you didn’t even know you had, whether it’s the potential for evil, or for great love, or passion that’s so powerful it’s like a force of nature. It’s depleting in the best way possible. It’s almost post-orgasmic. You come out of it drained, going, “Whoa! What was that?” When you really hit it you surprise yourself, and sometimes others.”
All my love to you and yours, Mr. Robin Williams.
