A comic, an actor, an entertainer and human soul that so many could feel they could relate to. I first saw him as Mork in Mork and Mindy.   His humour, his energy was so entertaining and more than that.  How could you not be motivated and excited to learn more after watching Dead Poet’s Society?  How could you not feel moved at Good Morning Vietnam?  Mrs. Doubtfire touched the hearts of children and adults.    I will not go on because I there will be countless detailed tributes to Robin Williams’ life.

I first heard of his death on the radio driving home tonight. I was truly saddened but not shocked.  I knew he has been struggling with depression for a long time.  I can only imagine his pain and trying to survive despite this.

He will be missed but he will always be remembered.

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!

  1. I met him while he was doing Mrs Doubtfire in San Francisco… The house was at the corner of Stiener and Vallejo. I was putting a phone line in his dressing room trailer… Good real man.. Not a fake
