Lux Thinking Aloud

R.I.P. Robin Williams

3:41 PM

It was another uneventful day.

That is, until I've heard about Robin Williams' death. I'm not a huge fan. But, Genie in Aladdin is one of the most lovable and hilarious Disney characters I know. The Dead Poets Society is one of the most poignant films I've ever seen. So is Good Will Hunting and What Dreams May Come. I laughed and cried watching Mrs. Doubtfire and Patch Adams. 

I've just realized that Robin Williams was a part of my childhood and growing up years. It's weird when you know that death is a part of life, but you still feel lost and numb when someone you know passes away. 

Just like now.

R.I.P. Robin Williams

I've read about Robin Williams' depressions and ignored it. It's another ordinary Hollywood news, I thought. No big deal. How callous of me.

Here's this man who made me laugh---and cry in his movies and there I was not giving it much thought.
I've never pictured Robin Williams dead. How silly of me.  

Maybe it's because when you look up to someone, you always see them strong and invincible not even death can touch them.

Then again, at least now he's not suffering anymore. No more depressions. No more battles. No more bondage.

He's now free as he was as Genie.

Goodbye, Captain.  

And to borrow Aladdin's lines, "Genie, you're free...I'm gonna miss you".

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Lux. I agree there is a huge loss to the world in Robin Williams, hopefully in death he can see how important his life truly was and all the ways he impacted so many through is humour and realness. I remember when Princess Di was killed, I felt such a deep sadness knowing that this great person was no longer able to have an impact on the world, the same can be said for Robin Williams. How sad that he believed there was no other way but death - breaks my heart!

    1. i couldn't agree more. this is one celebrity death that's affected me so much. i mean, I'm not a big fan, but all movies I've watched with him in it are all great. i especially grew up watching Disney films and Genie's one character a kid does not easily forgets. the world mourns such a big loss.

  2. His death touched me, it's sad that someone who dedicated his life to making us happy could die so sad and alone.
