Mr Bojangles

January 23rd, 2018

About 7 years ago a man rang our door bell in a small village in Catalunya, he was doing a survey on what the general public thought of the cultural events and goings on in the area.
We worked our way through the questioner slowly but surely until we got to the last question, which was, who was my greatest cultural influence, I replied my mum.
She was much more intelligent and clever then she let herself believe
Kinder and more loving then she ever knew
Much more generous and giving then she gave herself credit for
More forgiving and open minded then she ever realised
Loved by more people then she would ever know
Spike Milligan wrote, I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree. For me my mum was that tree.
