Rest in Peace Robin Williams.
ZELDA’S MOVING TRIBUTE TO HER DAD ROBIN: ‘ONE OF THE KINDEST, MOST GENEROUS, GENTLEST SOULS I’VE EVER KNOWN’
'My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone,…
Today I spent the day watching Robin Williams movies. There is one movie in particular that is a highly underrated children’s movie: JACK, as I was watching it a character said something quite moving- it had me in tears.
"You were a shooting star among ordinary stars. It’s wonderful and passes quickly, but while its here it lights up the whole sky, so beautiful in fact that the other stars, well they just stop to watch."
I was just sitting in stunned silence with how fitting those words were in this particular case with this same man years later. I know we’ve heard a lot about Robin in the past week, but he like so many others suffer with chronic mental illness and the discussion around it needs to keep happening. End the stigma and help the people around you by learning more, helping more and loving more.

The Dancer has direct communication with God, much like a personal phone line. The telephone she uses is her body and she dials by dancing. As such, her dancing is a very, very sensual thing.
In the past, whenever she went out dancing, she got hit on and hit on and hit on. She didn’t like this at all. She hated it. It wasn’t what she was trying to do. She just wanted to talk to God. She almost gave up dancing altogether. Then she got an idea.
Now, just before she goes dancing, the Dancer straddles a photocopier and makes copies of her vagina. When guys come up and hit on her, she just hands them a copy."
