you’re walking in the woods
there is no one around
and your phone is dead
out of the corner of your eye you spot him
I think the reason why Robin Williams death hit a lot of people hard, (myself included) is because his acting is a direct link to your past, whether it was Mrs Doubtfire, Dead Poets Society, Hook, Patch Adams, Aladdin, etc the fact of the matter is a part of the fabric of your young life is now gone, so you feel an actual real loss, over a man you’ve never met.
