On the first occasion I went to the Village was back in the 1980’s, I remained isolated there, I didn’t leave The Village for three days. And then on the third day I drove into Porthmadog, and it seemed too busy, too noisy after the cocoon like atmosphere of The Village, which I was happy to return to. That in turn made me wonder what it would have been like for Number 6, to return to the hustle and bustle of London, after months of isolation in The Village. It’s no wonder Number 6 couldn’t wait to get back to The Village in ‘Many Happy Returns,’ seeking quiet solitude, and peace of mind.
Be seeing you
