As we gather around the table with family or friends, one of the biggest memories most of us recount is laughter. Humor helps us break down barriers, better understand each other, see ourselves more clearly, survive horrific situations; and then deal with annoyances through a wry grin, instead of a flaring temper.
We can never underestimate the value of a sense of humor, and we instinctively love and honor those who help us laugh. We especially love those who do so through great compassion.
In this spirit, I regularly post a "Foodie Funny" on social media. Tonight's was to honor the first time we saw our beloved and compassionate Robin Williams as Mork in the kitchen, encountering a chicken egg, after hatching from his space egg.
We had no idea what surprising joy this man was about to bring to us all. He was pure magic.
Remembering this great soul, humanitarian, and funny man this evening, and wishing his family and friends much comfort in his extraordianry absence. I hope Mr. Williams feels the incredible love & gratitude radiating up from the millions of people around the world to wherever he is right now.
We will miss you, dearly, Sir.
