Robin Williams…

Having suffered from both depression and addiction issues for many years myself, I’ve been having a very hard time trying to think objectively about the death of this wonderful man. In the end I’ve decided that I just can’t. So I’ve decided instead to just say what I’ve seen in him since I first saw him on Happy Days, before Mork & Mindy, back in the 70s. It was in his eyes…
