He provided the world with a great deal of joy and laughter through the years despite his personal struggles. I hope that he has finally found peace and happiness wherever he may be. Some sources. Brick stock by Elleth Member reactions:
Truly a beautiful tribute to Williams and he certainly did give us a lot of laughter. Hope he found his peace at last. He was Tops.
Like the concept of dreams and its illusions behind it good one
Love the many things Williams' you have shown here - a true tribute. I would get rid of the black pixel line at the top though.
Depression is a physical condition that affects the mind. Sadly, well-meaning folks opine over why he was depressed as though he simply had "the blues." People tend to equate being down with depression. It's like comparing brain cancer and non-melanoma skin cancers--There is no comparison. I came close to Williams' decision 20 years ago. I just wanted out. Thanks to an insistent supervisor, I got help and HAPPY. Rest in peace, Mr. Williams. I understand. Member reactions:
Hidden Author, you are so right, it is a physical condition. I'm glad that you had a insistent supervisor, take care and nice work on your chop. Robin Williams will dearly be missed.
Thanks hobbit90. I have my moments but recognizing it, medication and practicing MINDFULNESS guarantee when I move on, it won't be my choice. God Bless.
Looks sad.... but if something is over... a new beginning is awaits for you... RIP Robin
Sorry to hear you were on the edge, but glad you did not step over it. Many people are not so lucky to have a good support when they are depressed. God Bless.
LM: I chose the sad image because it reflects reality, and, from my perspective, comports respect and reverence. Personally, I think it is disingenuous to make happy, chopping whimsical images over a tragic suicide. He was a troubled soul and that is REAL--I think we can learn more from his pain than his filmography and public image which were FANTASY. Of course, I am totally off base because, as usual, the voters are moved by cartoonish images, shiny things and bright colors. But, I didn't expect a cup here. I just want people to ponder there is such a thing as propriety and good taste when it comes to tragic death.
I was going to have a rant about life is journey and about the pitfalls, when I remembered the song by ELO, Hang on tight to your dreams and the lyrics tell the story I was going to convey. Hold on tight to your dream Hold on tight to your dream When you see your ship go sailing When you feel your heart is breaking Hold tight to your dream. It's a long time to be gone Time just rolls on and on When you need a shoulder to cry on When you get so sick of trying Just hold tight to your dream CHORUS: When you get so down that you can't get up And you want so much but you're all out of luck When you're so downhearted and misunderstood Just over & over & over you could Accroches-toi a ton reve Accroches-toi a ton reve Quand tu vois ton bateau partir Quand tu sents -- ton coeur se briser Accroches-toi a ton reve.

One of my very early pieces re-worked,the significance is one of fantasy escapism nostalgia of growing up with Walt Disney comics where one would immerse themselves in a Mickey Mouse and other comic books. Member reactions:
Walt Disney studios still make wonderful fantasy films. I can't remember reading their comic books though but I did watch Mickey Mouse cartoons. Wonderful fantasy.
In the fifties for me,the only way you could watch cartoons was the Saturday morning matinee. All other entertainment was the radio and comic books.
