— Ayn Rand
You once said Death is nature’s way of saying “your table’s ready.” We wish we could’ve waited with you a little longer.
Rest in Peace
Rest in Peace Robin Williams
I knew he had been battling depression and addiction, but this saddens me to my very core. I grew up with Robin Williams. I remember him as Mork from Mork and Mindy, his comedy sketches with Whoopi Goldberg and Billy Crystal always had me laughing. His movies were either entertaining or thought provoking.
I hate that the darkness overpowered his light and he is no longer with us.

O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer.

What will your verse be? “
