Patch Adams is the 2nd Emergency Clown Nose® pick of my series of public figures wearing red noses that I plan to post on my blog through Christmas. I started this series with Einstein in a clown nose. By setting the bar so high, I knew my second choice had to be the wisest clown of my generation, Robin Williams.
In this series I will explore the noble as well as ignoble clown. Each day I’ll post a different person that either delights in playing the clown in public, or that the public has unfortunately chosen to paint as a clown
Robin Williams chose to live the life of a noble clown dispensing a brand of humor that heals. Unfortunately, all humor is rooted in suffering. My heart broke the day that Robin died.
