If you are like me you may still be thinking about Robin Williams, especially on the anniversary of his death.
Well if you want to indulge that a bit and get a deeper glimpse into him as a person, listen to this touching Comedy Bang Bang podcast with Bobcat Goldthwait, (did you know they were great friends?). He shares some sweet stories and I actually felt a little better after listening. It seems as though Robin was going one way or another, he just chose his exit before it was too late. He is still missed immensely.
Also, here are some comments made by his friends on Twitter and a sweet tribute video. And here is my post from last year.
We miss you Robin…
This quote has been inspiring me this week.
We are looking forward to the Emmy’s on Monday and the tribute to Robin Williams. In the meantime, here is a moving tribute by David Letterman and a sign at our local theatre for a Robin Williams film festival. Still thinking about him and hoping he’s at peace.
Let’s enjoy every single day, every single moment. If, like me, you are still googling him every day, here are a few links from around the web…
A beautiful post from Girl’s Gone Child which includes Norm Macdonald’s touching tweets.

Thank you for reading!
I was one of many heartbroken after hearing the news about Robin Williams. I am so sad for the place of despair that he had to get to in order to take his own life. I feel so bad for his family and everyone who knew and loved him. He sounds like a wonderful person.
I know how much I loved his art. These pictures are from one of the most pivotal movies in my life. It seems so silly to feel connected to an actor, someone I only knew through the screen, but I am deeply saddened nonetheless. The world seemed better with him in it.
