That title is a modified version of a line from a Bob Seger song – “Turn The Page.”
The original line is this:
“And you don’t feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through.”
My heart aches. Not just for Robin Williams, but for all the tortured souls of the world. Those who suffer silently, or outrageously, through their pain, whether public or private. Contrasting Robin Williams with Amy Winehouse may not make much sense to many. But, that’s what I meant by the “public or private” phrase. We all knew of her struggles, but I knew little of Robin’s depression.
It feels strange to be writing this. Like I just don’t know what to say.
Phrases masquerade as sentences at times like these.
There was one great post I saw on Facebook, shared by someone in my circles
(oh, wait, that’s G+)
– oh, yeah, I remember now. It was Ann Davis; sharing Anne Lamott’s post.
I’m not thinking of much more to say here. So, this will have to do. Deep breath, heavy sigh.
