Robin Williams

Robin Williams made me race home from school.

Don’t worry, he wasn’t chasing me. Robin Williams wasn’t my bully. I simply had to be home in time to see Mork & Mindy.

It was the first show, that wasn’t a cartoon, I couldn’t miss and that was down to the unique zaniness of Robin Williams.

I could go on to list decades of iconic magical moments Robin Williams has gifted us. I could reminisce about Mrs. Doubtfire, Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam and numerous stand-up performances. I could muse upon a kind unassuming man who would explode into dazzling dizzying genius on stage or film. I could reflect upon, as many of us must be doing, the mental health debate his passing has highlighted.

I could take any of these approaches … but a personal thought seems most appropriate.

So … Thank you, Robin Williams. You’ll be missed but thank you for spending time with us. You brought joy to millions.
