In Memoriam Robin Williams

August 15, 2014

Robin Williams 2The outpourings of the love and appreciation for Robin Williams on the news of his departure on Monday (August 10) are unprecedented in recent times. In life and in death he was the compassionate lover and caregiver. For his contemporaries like me, we grew up together literally in time if the space was unplugged. For me there was a spiritual and metaphysical relationship even before I had any real understanding of the two terms.
From Mork and Mindy in the seventies (1978-1982), in the wake of all the turmoil of the sixties and early seventies, many of us wondered what planet had we come from and why were we here; to the profound catharsis of Good Morning Vietnam (1987) and our need to find peace in laying that debacle to rest; to Good Will Hunting (1997) where the wrapper of the behavioral human skin was being stripped to the essence of the soul.

Line and Feather

Robin, what follows is from me to you (knowing that you will receive) and happy in sharing with our kindred spirits.
Very few in the human march through time have demonstrated the thin veil that separates our eternal spirit and soul with our humanity and personage. Your unbridled willingness to let that oneness of us all flow forth is truly your gift beyond compare. You invoked erupted laughter and pure joy in the most extinct volcanos among us. Now your compassion resonates in raising the consciousness of mankind.
Through the decade of the nineties (our forties) I was experiencing unanticipated awakenings of consciousness of spirit which poured forth in To My Father’s House (September 1998). You were making an incredible movie What Dreams May Come that was released the same year. The parallels in those two expressions about the thin veil and our eternal being have continued to resonate with me in ever-increasing vibrations these past sixteen years. Louder now than ever!
My mother who I loved dearly passed away from the onslaughts of cancer in January 2000. Dick Runyeon, a true friend and mentor, presided through her memorial service and on closing shared The Ship, which I trust will find it way to your family and friends.
Robin, to say Godspeed to you would be the ‘ultimate in redundancy.’ Please get back to me on that one – you could do wonders with it!!!
Thanks and love,
