Robin Williams: We Love You, Miss You and by golly, We Need to Learn from This
Sad indeed, but I have to personally thank Robin Williams. Master Tyler was a promising pirate as a child. Full costume, full of energy, lots of sword-fights, and when nightfall began, the movie Hook, would roll.
And, to be honest, I loved it. "No, my Lost Boys, I'll never leave you, never." "Thank you for believing."
"Rufio, if I am a maggot burger why don't you eat me! you two-toned zebra headed slim coated, pimple-farming paramecium brain, munching on your mucus, suffering from Peter Pan envy!... I will tell you what a paramecium is!
That's the paramecium! It a one-celled critter with no brain, that cant fly!...it was a grand time.
But the real lesson to me is mental health issues. I know this. Not talking about is wrong. It reminds me of divorce. I wish more people would talk about it because then just maybe fewer people would have to come to see me about it!
It is not a dirty word, just like mental illness. I once was declined membership in a business group because I did divorces.
Are you kidding me! Put it under the rug and hide! Mental health is a disease. Just like brain cancer. We all need to step back and listen-not judge, not solve but listen-and just be there.
And love. Thank you, Robin Williams, for the gift of life you gave so many.
MARRIAGE ADVICE: HOW NOT TO GET DIVORCED-NEW COLUMN BY A 23 YEAR DIVORCE ATTORNEY
Communicate. You are a team. Be there when it counts. When all else fails, love each other.
STRICTLY FOR DIVORCE LAWYERS: CONTEMPT CASE YIELDS 80 PARAGRAPH, 25 PAGE DECISION, THANK GOODNESS I WAS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THIS ONE...
I just finished a contentious (aren't they all) Contempt case. Most settle, this one did not. It involved a real breakdown in the legal system some 5 years or more ago. The parties settled their divorce by agreement and everybody ran out the door as fast as they could when it was over.
Typical. The problem I see over and over with that is the details. Who was supposed to do the QDRO? What was meant by 1/2 the stock options?
Pay $20,000-really? When? How are you going to divide student loan debt that has been consolidated? "All four paragraphs are ambiguous the decision wrote." "Bad deal for both sides."
The good news is we have a court system that is paying attention. That is right, 80 paragraphs of thought and reason, 35 pages. And at the end of the day-all should have been done years ago. See attached below...
