We all have one life that is real, but we also all have more than one life which is fantasy.
As the gap between the rich and the poor widens surely it’s time for Robin Hood to reappear.
I first met Robin as a seven-year-old boy in November, 1975. Since then he has been my best-ever fictional friend. Lately, as we begin to see the dangerous effects of living in a world that separates the wealthy from those living in poverty, I have spoken to him more often. In fact, I have begun to feel the force of fantasy push me towards him, to do something wrong in order to do something right and dare to upset the status quo.
I hope that, while the world faces a serious challenge to humankind’s ability to share, you will want to join me. I’m performing at Sally Ann’s, The Geldart and Hot Numbers in December in Cambridge and you can find the performance info here. Bring a mince pie.
