RIP Robin Williams

While eating dinner this evening, I heard the news that Robin Williams had passed away, perhaps a suicide.  My heart goes out to his family, his wife, and his children, and also his friends.  Thirty years working in the worlds of mental health and child abuse and neglect, and I still don't understand the desparation that someone must feel.  So very sad.

In my mind, Robin Williams will almost always be "Mork".  Mork & Mindy was set in my hometown of Boulder, Colorado and ran from 1978 -1982.  I didn't live in Boulder then, I was out of college and by 1979 was in Seattle.  Watching the show opening with various views of Boulder was a taste of home.

Words simply aren't enough.
