Oh Captain, My Captain

Robin Williams, actor/comedian, has left us. He was so much more than just another celebrity. In San Francisco, he will be remembered as one of the misfit residents that once made up the 'city of misfits' who could find no other home so welcoming.

Though today's San Francisco, through gentrification, resembles little of what once was an accumulation of eccentric, adventurous and artistic souls touching the lives of one another, the city can proudly lay claim to budding young talents the likes of Robin Williams.

Appearing strange and unusual to those outside San Francisco's borders, the man was and always will be a San Francisco treat to us 'Abbey Normals' who shared the city with him.

"Words and ideas can change the world"

Oh Captain, My Captain
Sail On
