We all Fail. It’s our Job, then, to Let Go & Move On & Laugh Again.

This is beautiful. {Seinfeld & Richards: Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee)

If you’re in a rush, the last five minutes are pure gold.

It doesn’t matter how you get to the island; what matters is what happens when the red light turns on. Love that. Also love the frankness and softness of two old stars coming together around Richards’ painful, public explosive implosion some years back around an n-word-laced retort at a heckler at a comedy club.

We all fail; we all feel shame. At some point we have to put down that luggage and use our instrument again. Here’s hoping Richards does so. Selflessly, he owes it to us and himself to laugh again.
