>A Dream

>I had a dream … I’ve been piling on the weight since the move to London and it’s been worrying me. Anyway – this dream. I dreamt I woke up and looked in the mirror and I was wearing this really heavy hat – a two stone hat! I hadn’t realised that I’d been wearing this hat for so long. I took it off and I didn’t have a weight problem any more. I thought ‘I should write a diet book’. Then I woke up for real, went to the mirror and …

Last Monday I hauled my fat arse up to Birmingham to talk about the radio play. The meeting was in a converted letter box overlooking the beautiful River Birm. I met Soweto Kinch who is going to be composing special music for the play – cool!

Since then I’ve been engaged in displacement activity. And trying on different hats.

  1. >It always comes back to hats in the end, don’t it? Actually, I think I might be suffering under the weight of the same two stone hat that you are. If I could get rid of that and replace it with, say, a lightweight but ultra-fashionable flat cap, then get the monkey off me back the writing might come a bit easier. If only we could lose weight in direct proportion to the amount of words we bashed out, there’d be double reason to stop mucking about. I like your dream, Lance, you must have more.

  2. >That’s a book I would love to read. Particularly if it was written with a sincere tone.(Strangely enough, a self-help title caught my eye the other day because it looked like a Paul McKenna book and I thought it was titled “De-Stroy Your Life in 7 Days”… of course, it was actually something else. Pity.)
