Robin Williams – Nanu Nanu


Yesterday morning my alarm clock radio(totally old school!) went of and the news says that the actor Robin Williams, had died. He had a history of battling addiction and mental health.

People’s personalities are allowed to break through and create a day that is individual to them, this means that for many the comfort of a hotel is no longer always part of the picture.
