"THE MEASURE OF A MAN"

Not - How did he die? But - How did he live?
Not - What did he gain? But - What did he give?

These are the things that measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

Not - What was his station? But - had he a heart?
And - How did he play his God-given part?

Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer?
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?

Not - What was his church? Not - What was his creed?
But - Had he befriended those really in need?

Not - What did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But - How many were sorry when he passed away?

These are the things that measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

I don’t think I want to say goodbye to Robin Williams. I think I want to say thank you.

I want to say thank you for the smile on my older brother’s face when he watches ‘Hook’ - again - and remembers that he’s still a kid, even if he’s technically all grown up.

I want to say thank you for my…

I’ve never cried so much for someone I didn’t know. Meeting Robin Williams on Broadway in 2011 was a lifelong ambition fulfilled and I will always treasure the images above. I only wish I had been brave enough to tell him how much he inspired me, both as a child and as an adult. And of course he could make me laugh till I cried, more than anyone else ever!

Maybe it was my typical British reserve kicking in, maybe it was the feeling that he’d probably heard it a million times before. Maybe he would have just brushed it off anyway. As it stands, my heart breaks to think that - in his final moments - all the love and laughter he contributed to the world couldn’t be reflected back to help save him. I hope he is basking in it now.

Rest in Peace Mr Williams, and thank you for sharing your humour, your heart & your humanity with the rest of us. x

Please check out my website at http://www.forget-me-not-project.co.uk for more info on the great items and big names included in The Forget-Me-Not Project so far.

I was lucky enough to see The Book of Mormon on Broadway just before its official opening night in March 2011 (and even luckier that I paid less than $100 for a seat in the front orchestra stalls!!!)

This is one of my prized souvenirs from that night and I am now offering it for sale via an Ebay charity auction in aid of Leukaemia Research, in memory of my younger sister, Sue.

It is extremely rare and highly-collectable, having been signed by Andrew Rannells, Josh Gad, Nikki M. James and several other original Broadway cast members.

You can check it together with my other auction listings here: http://tinyurl.com/mlqg4px

Three lovely ladies of Call the Midwife featured at the Hay Festival today (1st June) and were kind enough to pose for theses charity ‘flower photos’, as well as autographing a Call the Midwife box set which will be included in a forthcoming auction in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Thank you to all 3 for the photos, the autographs and a thoroughly entertaining talk.
