I'm glad I'm shot of said well-meaning woman; I never want to be that miserable again. Thankfully I seem to have picked sensible people to inspire me throughout my life, but knowing me I probably had a few song characters as well – just hope one of them wasn't Long Lankin.
I loved Gene Hunt on sight, that's why I wrote said song, have all the policing guides he's supposedly written, & to this day I still love him – but I always knew he wasn't a real person.
Before my move he "visited" me via dream in a flat where I could do & reach almost nothing. I took it as a warning that I wouldn't manage, & nearly 1yr on I'm living away from parents, safe, looked after properly (not that my parents didn't do a damn good job) & a lot healthier, w/ a Consort. These are things I never thought would happen. I'd say that's a good thing cos it was actually helpful to me ,:. no need to let it go.
