Two years ago, I was performing at The Punchline in San Francisco, and Robin came to the show with our mutual friend, Dan Spencer.
This particular batch of material was the first time I had touched upon my then still-fresh divorce wounds, and big chunks of it were pretty dark. The next day, I got a text from a number I didn’t recognize. Whoever it was had obviously been to the show and knew my number, so I figured they would reveal themselves at some point and save me the embarrassment of asking who they were.
The Mystery Texter asked how I was REALLY doing. “You can’t fool me. Some of those ‘jokes’ aren’t ‘jokes.” By now I knew that whoever this was had been through what I was enduring, as no one else would know to ask, “What time of day is the hardest?”
He wanted to know how my kids were handling it, all the while assuring me that the storm, as bleak as it was, would one day pass and that I was not, as I was then convinced, a terrible father for visiting a broken home upon my children.
I am not rewriting this story in retrospect to make it dramatic. I did not know who I was texting with. Finally, my phone blipped, and I saw, in a little green square, “Okay, pal. You got my number. Call me. I’ve been there. You’re going to be okay. - Robin.”
That is what you call a human being.

PHOTOGRAPHY: Wet Cities by Christophe Jacrot

French photographer Christophe Jacrot takes us out on the streets when most of us prefer staying sheltered. He captures the raw, stunning souls of Paris, New York and other cities in a different way, with artistic purpose in magical yet in-climate weather conditions.

Jean and Jean-Paul

Someone asked me today if I’d ever been told I resemble Jean Seberg. I said no, but maybe I can see why he thought she reminded him of me. We have a similar facial structure….?

The legend, Robin Williams, with his daughter Zelda, perhaps playing some “Legend Of Zelda”. 
Mr. Williams loved the Legend of Zelda series so much, he named his daughter after the Princess.

I have never burst into tears over the news of the death of a celebrity (with the exception of Michael Jackson). R.I.P to this legendary man.
Mr. Williams, you had such a beautiful soul, incredible talent, and such power and courage to make people all over the world laugh and cry. With such truth and honesty in every performance, you softened our hearts and made us escape our worries and really feel. You will be dearly missed.
