Requiescat in Pace Robin Williams (07/21/1951 – 08/11/2014)

‘I set my sail
Fly the wind, it will take me
Back to my home, sweet home

Lie on my back
Clouds are making way for me
I’m coming home, sweet home

I see your star
You left it burning for me
Mother, I’m here

Eyes open wide
Feel your heart and it’s glowing
I’m welcome home, sweet home

I take your hand
Now you’ll never be lonely
Not when I’m home, sweet home

I see your star
You left it burning for me
Mother, I’m here’

‘Mother, I’m Here’ Darren Korb – Bastion (Original Soundtrack)

‘Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rims at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar?’ (Hamlet, V.i)

Yesterday a man of outstanding talent and never ending wit took his own life.  Robin Williams lost his fight with depression and addiction.  Those that say depression is something to just get over are fucking liars.

It is truly a sad thing when a person, a human being has reached a point where death is the only answer.  If this is you and you have found your way here please remember that you are in fact not alone there are people in the world that do care and want to help you.  Please call them.

    well done, Colin. there is no consolation for the loss, nor can there be, other than to care for each other and be willing to listen–which is something I know that you do for people. I don’t know if there’s a particular meaning to existence, but if there isn’t, the smallest act of kindness means so very much.

      If I cannot bring you comfort
      Then at least I bring you hope
      For nothing is more precious
      Than the time we have and so
      We all must learn from small misfortune
      Count the blessings that are real
      Let the bells ring out for Christmas
      At the closing of the year
      Let the bells ring out for Christmas
      At the closing of the year.
