This is an older picture of Robin Williams - from his "Mork and Mindy" days. Since many of you will probably not know what I am referring to, the following is a short synopsis from Wikipedia:
"Mork & Mindy is an American science fiction sitcom broadcast from 1978 until 1982 on ABC. The series starred Robin Williams as Mork, an alien who comes to Earth from the planet Ork in a small, one-man egg-shaped spaceship. Pam Dawber co-starred as Mindy McConnell, his human friend and roommate. In 1997, the episode "Mork's Mixed Emotions" was ranked #94 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time list."
I included a couple of videos from You-Tube just so that you could get an idea of what he can do. I liked the TV series better than the videos because it told a story. Surprisingly, most of the series was unscripted, which is amazing!!! Robin Williams was great at it then and still is (as the video links will show). But, some things have changed; humor is more course today, with language that is sometimes offensive and attitudes that reflect a more secular society than in bygone decades. The world has changed and but not that much, as these passages from the Old Testament will show...
Ecclesiastes, Chapter 10
19 A feast is made for laughter,
and wine makes the life glad;
and money is the answer for all things.
Ecclesiastes, Chapter 7
2 It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men, and the living should take this to heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter; for by the sadness of the face the heart is made good. 4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. 5 It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools. 6 For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool. This also is vanity.
1 When Yahweh brought back those who returned to Zion,
we were like those who dream.
2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with singing.
Then they said among the nations,
“Yahweh has done great things for them.”
3 Yahweh has done great things for us,
and we are glad.
4 Restore our fortunes again, Yahweh,
like the streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow in tears will reap in joy.
6 He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing,
will certainly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves.
Some people live only for themselves and today, while others are more introspective and still others seek even higher standards. Life can be very funny (as the first video shows), or absurd (check out the second one) but sober reflection will lead one towards the true reality of existence and to those who seek God will find him. And their lives will be filled with a different kind of laughter- that of rejoicing over what God is doing in their lives!!! Na-No, Na-no (bye for now)
