I wanted to write this post because I’m sure that lots of you, like me, are genuinely devastated at Robin Williams’ death earlier this week. I’m not going to post, or link to, any of the details surrounding his death, because I’m purposefully avoiding them. Instead of that, I want to post some youtube videos and stuff of his, because I spent an inordinate amount of time watching them this morning. It’s so heartbreaking when someone so talented, so immeasurably loved, doesn’t feel that they’re able to cope. Depression is a horrible, awful thing, and please, please, please, if you are suffering, please speak to someone. The Samaritans are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and you can call them on 08457 90 90 90 and speak to someone in total confidence. I love the Samaritans, I think that what they do is incredible. You can also contact Mind on 0300 123 3393 Monday to Friday, between 9-6.
I’m going to watch The Birdcage, and all of the Mork & Mindy on Youtube now. Nanu nanu.
