You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.
Thank you Robin Williams for being the best nanny, the best genie, the best Peter Pan, the best teacher who made us want to read poetry, radio announcer, LGBTQ character, the best board game player and the best comedian. You made us laugh. You made us cry. You inspired. Thank you.
