Likewise. Mostly it was just the two of us - and usually yes, it was
fantasy: Robin Hood and his Merry Men in an overgrown Brisbane back yard -
tunnels through ferns and yellow jasmine vines, castles in the mango tree,
dungeons beneath the house, mulberries, loquats and mangoes, bows made from
bamboo and arrow-heads cut with kitchen scissors from the sheathsof palm
trees. I also remember flying to the stars on the skeleton of a rusty plough
in the middle of a paddock of dry, blonde grass... I think i like it because
it falls somewhere between acting and living. Best of both worlds? And
imaginations can be just as active when sitting in chairs rolling dice.
