When it comes to perspectives, in Robin Williams’ case they were totally different. There was a sort of sorrowful perspective when it came to his seeing life through his own eyes. And there’s a lot of gratitude and laughter when it comes to other people’s perspective. He was a sad clown, that’s for sure… However he was a very funny one. Here are 2 sides of the Robin Williams story; one that belongs to the ones who knew him, and another one that belongs to him.

The last lines of this post go to Christopher Reeves, who wrote a touching incident about Williams in his book, Still Me: “Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately…it was Robin Williams…for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.”
