This week’s image is an homage to the late, great and greatly beloved Robin Williams. When Robin Wiliams first “burst on the scene” of our cultural landscape, it was as the equally lovable character Mork, in the show, “Mork & Mindy.”
Robin Williams and his wonderful characterization were other-worldly and hilariously funny to boot. One of Mork’s funny-spiritual lines was this, “Reality. What A Concept.” At the time, that line, and the show, was mind-altering and in my impressionable teenage years, it became a portal to a world that jived with my own burgeoning ideas about what was considered reality.
T-shirts and buttons came out with that funny line printed on them. I had such a crush on Robin back then – still do and probably always will – and I had a small black pin just like the one I’ve pictured here. It was about an inch in diameter and black. (It didn’t say Mork as an attribution; I added that.) I loved that pin and I wore it every day, on every outfit.
