Yes writing of ‘the Prisoner,’ my very first letter to be written on the subject of ‘the Prisoner’ I submitted to Number 6 magazine, the society magazine for Six of One: The Prisoner Appreciation society back in 1987. It was a short letter as I recall about nothing in particular, rather insignificant as I recall.
‘The Prisoner’ used to be a rather private affair as I once wrote in an article, but now since writing my ‘Prisoner’ based blog I’ve made it a rather public affair. Well the majority of us feel the compelling need to share our thoughts, ideas, interpretations, and the different ways we look at the series, with like-minded enthusiasts. Although we might not agree with the other guy’s points of view, but then that’s human nature. It goes on you see, the playing around with ‘the Prisoner,’ it gives pleasure. “Questions are a burden to other. Answers a prison for oneself,” meaning, as Norma West once recalled in an interview “There are perfect questions, and only imperfect answers.” But even that doesn’t stop us moving pieces around, trying to make them fit, in order to make the jigsaw complete. But what then? You have the jigsaw in front of you, the picture could not be clearer, you break the jigsaw up into its individual pieces and put them back in the box............only to take them out again at some future date to begin all over again.
Be seeing you
