Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
Some say the picture is distasteful. Some say Bill Cosby has varied taste in his victims. Some question if the woman are truthful. Some say he is innocent until proven guilty. Some say, “if it was my daughter….”
Personally, I think it’s a powerful picture. Social media commentary confirms how we buy into perception. Surely not OUR Bill Cosby? Family, funny man who makes that cute smile. Why not Bill Cosby? We bought into a character he plays. We don’t know him off set. We do not know his 3am demons.
Has the death of Robin Williams taught us nothing? You cannot see inside the soul of another. LYou cannot see their darkness. What we see is what producers want us to see.
Do not confuse playing a character, a role, with the unshakable character of the man himself.
Be Cosby guilty or not, I do not know. I do know I never expected Robin Williams to leave this world the way he did.
Not everything that shines is gold.
I wish you enough,
