It used to be good to escape to The Village just for a week or two, to escape the every day humdrum way of life, to escape to a fantasy. After all we are all prisoners of something or other and it’s good to get away, even for a short while. But sooner or later one has to leave The Village, and go home. No.6 was a prisoner, taken to The Village because he resigned. Eventually he escaped back to London, I wonder how it would have been for him, had he not got into his Lotus, but had gone into his house, as the Butler did. The front door opening automatically with that familiar electronic hum, serving as an indication that he had been in The Village all the time!
Be seeing you
