I want to break free

This is what I kept thinking – like the old Queen song ‘I want to break free’ The inevitability of it all frustrated me. I wanted Kathy and Tommy and all the others to have more curiosity about what life was like beyond their tightly knit community and to want to break away. It all seemed so inhuman somehow with no real feeling or commitment, no desire for anything different – perhaps they were programmed this way just as they were made unable to reproduce. All very unsettling but then again that’s what makes a good writer I suppose. Charlotte
