Song 224: Send in the Clowns by Stephen Sondheim

Like most everyone who ever saw one of his movies, I've been thinking about Robin William's passing recently, and I think that some of the hardest people to understand are comedians. If you see any interview with some of the big stars in comedy, although they bring so much laughter to the world, they're also normal people who sometimes endure a lot of pain.  There's no shortage of brilliant, hilarious, and dramatic moments that come to mind when you think of Robin Williams, and there are many articles out there that have written eloquently about the man, his life, his troubles, and untimely end now that can state all this better than I can.  

I wanted to still pick a song and this one popped into my head - it's always reminded me of comedians for some reason, and the lyrics give it a sorrowful sound.  So here is today's song:  Send in the Clowns by Stephen Sondheim.
