Its that time of year again. Everyone who has dealt with loss knows the pain of certain anniversaries, moments full of memory that come round like clockwork and usurp all others, no matter how hard you may try to prepare for or avoid them. These weeks are the hardest for me, and thus, youll see me a lot less, if at all. For all the internets good intentions in expressing to me their fondness for dad, its very overwhelming to have strangers need me to know how much they cared for him right now. Its harder still to be expected to reach back. So while Ive got the strength, consider this my one open armed response, before I go take my yearly me time to celebrate his and my birthdays in peace. Thank you for loving him. Thank you for supporting him and his lifes work. Thank you for missing him. I do too. If youd like to do something in his honor, volunteer at your local homeless shelter, or look up how to make homeless aid backpacks. Give one in his name. Hed have loved that. Otherwise some great orgs he loved include @cafoundation, @dswt and @reevefoundation. Mostly, try to spread some laughter and kindness around. And creatively swear a lot. Everytime you do, somewhere out there in our vast weird universe, hes giggling with you... or giving a particularly fat bumblebee its wings. Happy early birthday, Poppo. Miss you every day, but especially these ones.
Tristesse. Quatre ans après la mort de Robin Williams, sa fille Zelda lui rend hommage sur son compte Instagram. "Cette semaine est la plus difficile pour moi", a indiqué l'actrice. Et d'ajouter : "Si vous voulez faire quelque chose en son honneur, faites du bénévolat dans un refuge pour sans-abris locaux. Cherchez comment fabriquer des sacs à dos pour leur venir en aide. Donnez-en un en son honneur. Il aurait aimé cela". A bon entendeur.
