Jane Clare 2005

As The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz was the first Hoban book I read, I decided that lions should be central in my SA4QE drop. Having only just moved to Liverpool, however, I set off with the yellow pages in my bag not knowing where to find any. Bizarrely, a friend whom I met for lunch insisted that we battle through the wind so he could show me something he thought I would like. I was led to this enormous bronze lion head, one of an identical pair, mounted on two doors in the commercial centre of Liverpool. I thought the reference to those who ‘run the world’ was therefore fairly apt.



The second lion was found in a changing cubicle in a clothing shop. Understandably, I didn’t remain concealed to watch the reactions of other customers!



The people who run the world now were children once. What went wrong? What is it that with such dismal regularity goes wrong? Why do perfectly good children become rotten grown-ups?
from Pan Lives, The Moment Under The Moment
