Monday/Memeday: Robin Williams

It was about this time  last year–I was on vacation then, as I am now, and heard about it after the fact.  It is odd that a stranger’s death can move me so–but I miss him or, perhaps more accurately, I feel his absence in the world.  He was one of those people, it was just good knowing he was out there.  At least he left us so much of himself.

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

  1. Hard to believe it’s been a whole year. Yes the world was a better place for having him in it. I miss him too.

  2. Strangely, I do too even though I was really only a fan in the earlier days of his work. Was just nice to know he was still out there. Sad way to go. And so young, too.

  3. Can’t believe it’s been a year already- and to be honest, I never really felt Robin Williams’ absence until he died and I actually thought to go back and watch all his work, and it was then that I grasped what a person the world had lost.

  4. Yes, Robin Williams helped us to laugh at ourselves. I miss him…and I agree with your sentiment wholeheartedly, “…it was just good knowing he was out there.”
