Robin Williams, a compassionate story teller…

Sad news in the passing of Robin Williams. I was a quiet fan, not least for his almost medieval approach to comedy and drama. The Fisher King almost a perfect depiction of his own internal struggles…

My own personal favourite was his portrayal of ‘Sean’ in Good Will Hunting…” He was despite all his struggles, a great story teller, who took care over the stories he chose to tell others, whatever daemons haunted him…
