A letter to a person I admire

http://www.capenews.net/mashpee/beatchik_honors_stories_of_bohemian_women

Last Wednesday, an interview with this author (article attached) changed my life.
Maybe the article I wrote will benefit her book sales, maybe it won’t. But I can tell you one thing: the experience was much more personal and profound than my words could portray to any reader.
She told me that when she was in her early twenties, she was devastated by the deaths of three famous people she admired in a period of three months. Horrified by the realization that she had never told them how they had influenced her life, she bought the most beautiful stationery she could find and wrote fan letters to a dozen living people who were special to her.
And now, less than a week later, Huffpost’s bold red headline— which seems obviously inappropriate and insensitive— points fingers at me for failing to do the same.
Robin Williams, I am sure you will get millions of belated fan letters in the wake of your death. But they are all sincere and written by those humbled and left speechless by your ability to help us see the world in ways we never imagined, even through the barrier of a TV screen.
I can only say that I wish the worth you felt for yourself was equal to the worth that the world attributed to you. Personally, there have been few other actors who have touched my soul as you have for so many years.
As a child, I was a tough audience, but your role in “Mrs. Doubtfire” made me double over with laughter in a way that I seldom did. My innocence was lost at an early age (how old was I, maybe 8 or 10?) when I watched “Patch Adams.” With Patch, I longed for joy and humor to be enough to save lives and change the world; I cried with him when his trusting nature proved to be naive, resulting in tragedy.
The joy, the pain you made me feel were more than effects of entertainment— they were raw emotions. Your films are gifts that will continue to give and they are life lessons that will teach for years to come.
Thank you for all of the above. It’s late, sure, but it’s a “thank you” that is worth more than you know.

Quotes on We Heart It.

"

I am the keeper of secrets,
the seeker of truths
to be revealed only
when morning light creeps
through reluctant crevices
cloaked in dark shadows.

I am loved by the good,
who flock like mourning doves,
wishing only for a voice
to tell their gold stories
of altruism and heroism,
souls shining through open doors.

But my worth lies in stories
that lie seven layers deep,
in holes guarded by men
with voices as deep,
who wear many faces
and are always looking down.

I am the keeper of secrets,
the seeker of truths.

"

"Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow it’s mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own."

Does anyone have a wrist tattoo/how painful is it? I’m thinking of getting the triskele symbol tattooed on the inside of my wrist… Not sure of the exact design yet but this photo shows the basic idea.
