  1. Good Morning to a world possibly lessened by the passing of a man, who happened to be both an actor, and a heroin addict. Philip Seymour Hoffman was a well known and well respected actor, an Oscar winning actor, and the Father of three children. He was also a man, known in his neighborhood as just a regular guy, quiet, unassuming, not an attention seeker, just “one of the guys”. He was, in addition to all the above, a long-term addict. According to his own stories relating to his childhood in Rochester, and his later sojourn in New York, his early years were spent trying to overcome the effects of an addictive personality which manifested at an early age. Plans are now underway to dim all the marquee lights on Broadway simultaneously as a tribute to this man, and I find myself somewhat bothered by this action. Please understand, I do not wish to belittle “Phil’s” achievements, nor to denigrate either his character or talents. However, I am of two minds when I consider both the man and society’s reaction to his demise. His talent for acting cannot be denied, but was it caused by inspiration… or desperation? His spot on portrayal of Capote, his transformation into the villain against Tom Cruise’s character in Mission Impossible, were these the results of a talent which blazed brightly enough to dispel the haze of heroin, or the cowardly refusal of a soul so burdened by its addiction that it must hide within another persona who has the strength of character to not succumb to the transient dreams of the drug’s siren song? I did not know the man, and I do not know the answer to my musings. I do know that the theatrical world, and the world of movies and television shows shall miss this creative and chameleon-like thespian. I know that I and thousands, nay millions, of others shall miss the entertainment provided by his “brief capering upon life’s stage”. But, the question remains in my mind, are we all ghouls to enjoy the products of a man’s deterioration over his lifetime from a “normal” individual to a soul suffering in silence the torments of the long damned? Or, are we celebrating the triumph of an extraordinary individual who surpassed and overcame the “monkey on his back” to become a celebrity of our time? The question could easily be asked… My God, what more could he have accomplished if he had not been an addict? The question could also be asked… How mundane could this man’s life have been, had he not been pursued 24/7 by the dual demons of both psychological and physical addiction? It remains the classic dichotomy, as the answers still elude my grasp of the human condition. I grieve for our loss… as the audience watching the stage… for we have lost a major player who could evoke the entire gamut of emotions as we viewed his performance. I grieve not for the man… for who knows but what he may have finally found what he was seeking… peace, or at least a surcease of his suffering. Farewell Philip.
