Lived too much when I was young to put it all down here.

If someone is interested I write about it all the time.
Interests
I know there has been much said about the death, the life, the debt we owe, etc...
I was in no hurry to add MY two cents, but....
I for one am glad we knew him, and I am still Channeling Robin Williams in The Bathroom!
I mean often when I sit to do what I know we all must do while we visit that room, I think stray thoughts and the things I have seen , heard, experienced; all come back to me.
Robin was a bit that way. I think all he was and all he said and all he did was like a stream of consciousness that had no real beginning or ending...

I thought back to a New Years Eve in the 80`s when I was watching our freshly installed cable and Bam! there was a program coming from New York  [A & E Cable with a program titled "An Evening at The Improv"] that featured him among others. I really had missed most of the Mork And Mindy Episodes as I was working really sh*t hours and was in My 2nd MASTER relationship [he was poor as a MASTER as I have related  or will relate one day; he could consume all your time without really giving much back, but anyway...]

Robin, yes, I am getting to that.
I sat down Cracked a Fosters and lit a Cigar [it was New Years Remember?] and I saw Robin just start the minute he hit the small stage. 22 minutes I think.
I was destroyed.
I was laughing so hard, and well, I hadn't been doing anything to alter my perception.
I just couldn't help it.
I have that whole er---I don´t know what to call it_on an old VHS tape. Routine we would have said of some comedians, but routine doesn't work; yes we'd have said it of another, but it doesn't fit somehow, not with him. It wasn't a canned thing. I doubt he was ever much for 'rehearsal'.
I believe there was this very real ´flow`to his way of fashioning the thoughts going into the comedy, it was as it was some jazz composition of words and thoughts. And it all seemed to make sense as I heard it.

Anyway, I will miss him, but he did what he did and we shall not likely see another that can do what he did.
Fact is, I am not sure a 'NEW' Comedian Could Make it work now.
The time when Mork From Ork was born, the newness of Improv, and well, we hadn't seen anything LIKE Robin before...

Anyway, I sat in the Bathroom and some of him popped into my head and I felt good about sitting there [even though I was having a little less than a good time other wise] thought about one phrase...
"Reality, What A Concept" ......
I know I will be channeling Robin for a long time

Where ever you are Robin

I don´t think I ever said thanks for this.
I have had a rough two years.
No computer that functioned for about a year.
And problem with health too.
Hope life is getting better, but anyway_
Again, thanks

Yes, you thanked me already (so far as I remember).

But I am glad you are feeling better and I hope you may find yourself back to your old self soon enough.

Hey Roger, any plans to visit the Pacific Northwest on your next visit to you AZ?

Well, I want to be sure I am up to the physical side of such a visit.
Have to make sure I have a little endurance :)
Walking is still not what it was, but I´m coming along [I hope]

I do like the idea.
Before my first hospital visit, I had that in mind.
I wasn´t just talking when I mentioned  that, I think I´d like that very much-
