Panning Back Through 30 years to 1991 and Hook?

Robin Williams (July 21, 1951 – August 11, 2014)
Pan Am ceased operations December 4, 1991
Robin Williams (July 21, 1951 – August 11, 2014)
I have never watched the movie 'Hook' until this week when I read that it was turning 30 years old this year, plus today (August 11th) is 7 years since Robin Williams took his life.
The Secrets of the Soul’s Journey Through Life?
Scene from 'Hook'
Scene from 'Hook'
Those darn owls and screen memories:-)
And here is a scene my old mate(?) Chris KnOWLeS might find interesting with all his posts about the siren and suicides?-)
Plus, Dustin Hoffman based the voice of Captain Hook on that of the columnist William F. Buckley.
Cursed Songs?
Scenes from 'Hook'
The Fisher King was released in 1991 also:-)
Scene from 'Hook'
The kissing couple who begin to float when some fairy dust lands on them were George Lucas and Carrie Fisher in a cameo, apparently.
Which is ironic in hindsight from 2021 considering Peter Pan is frightened to fly from the United States to England in 'Hook' and that Carrie Fisher would stop breathing on a 2016 flight from England to the United States.

Looks like the Trickster is having a laugh at me too today, because as soon as I had written the above part of the post about 'The Fisher King' I head down to my kitchen to make a coffee and see a Kingfisher/Kookaburra sitting on the lamppost outside my window, and I haven't seen a kookaburra around here for months, even though I have heard their laugh at times:-)   
A message from Robin through a kookaburra?-)
Bob Hoskins and Robin Williams died within a few months of each other in 2014.
Bob Hoskins (Smee) would alleviate stress on-set by singing various versions of the Lionel Richie hit "Hello" by including the lyrics "Hello? Is it Smee you're looking for?"
August 8 is what's known as the Lion's Gate Portal:-)
This portal opens every year between July 28 and August 12 but August 8 is considered official activation day.
Sadly but synchromystically this podcast by Dr. Amy Robbins hit my Apple Podcast list on August 11th and was a talk that Amy was re-posting because her friend and mentor passed away on the weekend around the time of the Lion's Gate Portal I'm guessing, and was a talk which mentions people who commit suicide.
Also, I couldn't help thinking how much that arch running off the Neverland island looked like Darwin's Arch, which collapsed into the ocean in 2021 -
Darwin’s Arch Collapses/Evolves on May 17th, 2021?
No man or woman is an island?
And on the subject of no man being an island, this podcast featuring Mark Ireland hit my Apple Podcast list on August 11th Australian time.
Scene from 'Hook'
Tootles references Dead Poets Society (1989) when he shouts
"Seize the Day!" at the end of this movie.
