How Robin Williams touched my life…

This will not be a particularly long post, nor one that will win any awards. But I wanted to share it. Like so many people around the world today, I’m sad over the death of actor Robin Williams. Depression and despair are killers that claim way too many victims. But this post is not about that; it’s about something I’ll carry with me forever that he had a part in.

Great Camera Deals

I loved to laugh at just about anything Robin Williams did. I also really, really loved seeing him stretch into the villain category in One Hour Photo. But the movie I’ll never, ever forget was Dead Poets Society, which came out when I was 15 and pretty emotionally vulnerable. I didn’t go in for the easy “Carpe Diem” platitude that critics and fans latched onto. For me, it was Williams, as Keating, standing on the desk. Whenever I’m confronted with a problem I can’t solve, I change my perspective on it, by either literally getting up and moving, or tackling the problem from another angle. Sometimes I actually do stand on a desk or a chair; it’s happened before. And I always, always think of the movie, of Robin Williams as Professor John Keating changing the lives of those students. He is gone now, but that movie, and specifically his work in that movie, taught me a life skill I will always use. Thank you, Robin, and rest in peace.
