WHEN THE LAUGHTER STOPS...
I've battled depression on and off for many years. It's not something you simply shake off. It can dig a deep pit that'll just eat at you no matter what. It's hard to know what was going through his mind at the time, but I pray his soul has found some sort of peace. And I urge any who read this to please seek help if you're depressed. There's no shame in asking for help. And although it may not always seem like it, people do care. Your life matters. YOU matter.
The piece above is for an auction that Team Cul De Sac founder Chris Sparks has set up to help raise money for Parkinson's Disease research, which Mr. Williams had recently been diagnosed. I'm not sure when the auction will take place, but rest assured I will keep everyone posted through here and Twitter when the time comes. Robin Williams made me laugh, he made me smile. I wanted this piece to reflect that. So thank you Mr. Williams for being such a funny person. Thank you for being such a creative person. But more than that, thank you for being such a good person. Carpe diem good sir.
Well folks, that's all for now. The silliness returns next week with a New Mike And Mindy comic that will hopefully bring some laughs and smiles your way too. Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later. And be kind to others. Even the smallest kind gesture can make a difference.
