Robin Williams

I pray that the suicide of Robin Williams awakens compassion – and an understanding about the pain of chronic depression.  I will leave it there, except to say to Mr. Williams that you were astonishing in “Good Will Hunting” and “Awakenings.” Bless you. And that I met you once, and you were very friendly. Thank you.

It’s a lovely show

I can recommend Lincoln Clarke’s exhibition without reservation. The curator’s selection and arrangement of photographs: perfect. Below is a photograph I took of Lincoln and two friends, behind the gallery, a few minutes before the opening.

My friend Lincoln Clarkes will be exhibiting new photographs at Vancouver’s Initial Gallery (2339 Granville Street) starting this Thursday, August 7, at an opening (6 – 9pm) sure to be packed and sure to be a total gas. I will be there.
