About this photo:
“Rest in peace my fellow flyer, no more black dog after you.
Hope you get a seat up front.
I am lifted that at least I know money and fame are not the answer.
Sadden by our lost.
Prayers to your wife, family, close friends and those who knew but couldn’t help.
I made this image shortly after hearing of our loss of Robin Williams. It hit me hard. We were traveling and I was away from home and out of my comfort zone. We went for a walk as the day closed and the evening was starting. I was feeling lost that with all the resources at his hand, Robin ended up losing the battle and the war. I thought what chance do I have? Then the warmth of the reality. It called to me to be aware of the demon that I battle and to never surrender.”
