“You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”
–Robin Williams

 

Sad clown
infused with divine madness
when did your journey start?
You gave the gift of laughter
and then it vanished
When pain came
you held my heart
and helped smile it away
Funny men understand pain
they feel so deeply
Now you’ve journeyed beyond
to other lives and hearts
leaving remembered laughs in your wake
and gratitude.
— G A Rosenberg

 

I will hold on to my spark of madness and share it for that is where my art comes from and I will seize each day in the best way I can

 

RIP Robin Williams. Thank you for performances that generally touched me. Dead Poets Society and The Fisher King remain two of my favourite movies of all time. You had a genuine understanding of how laughter and tears intertwine. That knowledge comes at a price. May your journey forward be a joyous one.
Blessings, G
