For many of us, losing Robin wasn't the same as learning about the death of another well-known star or personality on the international stage. It was Robin Williams, the guy we were just astounded to see and hear when we watched him perform. "Who is this guy?" I remember thinking to myself when I first watched the show "Mork and Mindy", while still in middle school. Could he really be an alien? It caught me off guard for a moment as this other-worldly being came spilling out of this strange, small man.
I went to the park on Sunday to relax, have a peaceful view of the lake, and perhaps to peruse my book. With its binding falling apart, my worn out copy of A Course in Miracles is water stained, flagged, and tagged but still the trusted companion it has been for more than 18 years now. I continue to find passages that provide for me again and again the precise answers to the questions my mind and heart pose. Never does it fail to enlighten and guide me through my journey.
