If you express things from the heart, be it words or pictures or *anything*, you never know who it might inspire. Pictures. Words. Muppets. Songs. Anything.
A comment I left on Zack Arias’ blog a few weeks ago turned into inspiration, and then a blog post itself.
Check it out: Wizards and Alchemy
Hello to those coming to visit from Zack’s blog!
I used to roll my eyes when people would post on Facebook about the death of a celebrity and talk about their pain and how their heart is sad.
I thought they were being dramatic. Exaggerating.
Yesterday, Robin Williams died.
Now I understand what they were trying to express.
Growing up as a very shy child, Robin showed me that it was okay to be myself. To make people laugh. As I became older he showed me that it was okay to age with humor. Getting older doesn’t mean you have to let go of who you really are inside.
My wife laughs every day because, in part, of a small hairy man who was a pure comic tornado showing me that it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks – be yourself, express how you want to express, and, most importantly, make ‘em laugh.
Yesterday we lost that whirlwind. Though I didn’t know him, his tornado touched me in my heart and in my funny bones.
Great news, gang: Ian Ethan is coming back to play at the studio. This time he’s bringing some buds with him.
I’ll be doing another “BYOC” Bring-Your-Own-Chair concert Friday, September 5th at 7:30pm.
Suggested donation of $15.
This is going to be amazing. Come see Ian and his trio perform live. It’s good good stuff.
