This question occurred to me recently, when I was scuba diving with friends and noticed that one of them seemed unusually subdued and downcast. I tried to include him in conversations and even teased him a little about his grumpiness, attempting to nudge him out of it. He became more irritable.

So in a quiet moment between dives, I asked him how he has been. He replied, ‘Not well at all.’

Robin Williams’ death hit me pretty hard. This article arrived shortly after, and I wanted to share.
