Robin Williams is dead at the age of 63 A comic genius

Returning from one of those evenings that I covet throughout the year: a stroll on the promenade, the street vendors, the smell of caramelized sugar and drink in the old town with one of the best friends ever. A last look at Twitter, to never run completely out of this world, and that's when I see the news that I never expected: the death of Robin Willians. Him, our eternal Peter Pan, our teacher, doctor, aviator, robot, disguised as a nanny handyman dad is gone. A loss to the world of cinema and for us, who were born in the nineties or not, who grew up with his movies, who laughed with him and of him, who were excited and who understood that grow up and live can be a wonderful game. Leaving chats circumstances of his death I think a tribute to Robin is fair and so I try and I try, in the middle of the night, and I try to tell you the best moments of his career, reminding me of his quote from "Jack" by Francis Ford Coppola that now, more than ever, might be more suitable: "You know, as we come to the end of this phase of our life, we find ourselves trying to remember the good times and trying to forget the bad times. And we find ourselves thinking about the future. We start to worry, thinking: 'What am I gonna do? Where am I gonna be in ten years?' But I say to you: 'Hey, look at me.' Please, don't worry so much 'cause in the end none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting. And if you're ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky, when the stars are strung across the velvety night, and when a shooting star streaks through the blackness turning night into day. Make a wish think of me. And make your life spectacular. "I look up and - as happens in the film - all of a sudden I see a shooting star. I think that's not a miracle, but the time of year; but I also think that Robin was right: we should do that our life is always a spectacle.
