That has happened a lot these last several hours since I heard that Robin Williams had died.

I’ve had tears.

This quote has always spoken deeply to me. And I always thought of him as some kind of kindred spirit for a variety of reasons. One of my favorite people.

Today I was listening to Terry Gross on Fresh Air (NPR) today playing a 2006 interview with Robin Williams.

I was struck senseless by this sentence that he said.
