Rest In Peace Robin Williams

Life is a beautiful magical train wreck to those of us who fight with depression. One minute you can be staring out the window reveling ecstatically at the beautiful vista out that window with no knowledge that the bridge is out just around the curve. Life is not simple. It is not just a choice between love and fear, well not at least for those of us who have the brain chemistry of an exploding nova in our hearts and minds. we learn to channel it at an early age, many through humor and or the arts. Having a brain that hopscotches around reality freely is not common, it is a great gift and a painful burden. It is tiresome to hear others claim that their view is the correct view when all it is, is another view of the roughly 7 billion views on this planet. Yes love and fear are our choices, but if you truly believe in the simplicity of this universe based purely on its simplistic merits then you will never taste vermillion, hear green or see a soul. Life is deep and there is more than one ocean to swim, and beyond this point there be metaphors that use no words. RIP Robin Williams, you will be missed.
