Already in a somber mood and reflecting on my blessings, I was shocked and saddened to hear about the loss of Robin Williams.
Celebrity deaths often feel surreal. When I hear about them, I feel bad. But few have affected me as much as hearing about Robin Williams. I loved him first in Mork & Mindy and then later in countless movies, including Dead Poet's Society, Good Morning Vietnam, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji (one my kids recently discovered and love), Awakenings, Aladdin, Good Will Hunting. Just to name a few.
Story after story on the Internet heralded his charitable nature and the happiness he brought to others. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Robin Williams.
What was your favorite of his movies?
Mine was probably Good Morning Vietnam.
A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) Update
Not much from me since Sunday with travel and a memorial service. I did get some work done on editing and blog preparation at the airport and on the plane ride.
Next week is the last week of summer and my baby sister, her husband, and their two kids will be visiting. Guess I'll be getting up early and staying up late to squeeze in everything I want to get done!
