La última noche con Papá Tacho es una fiesta, está aquí toda la familia, la que conozco y la que no conozco, vino la banda a tocarle las canciones de los chinelos que tanto le gustan, hay borrachines de pueblo jugando baraja, café, pan, muchas flores y una lumbrada.                            Se hace tarde y la gente sigue llegando. Hace rato le pregunté a mi mamá que dónde nos íbamos a acomodar siendo tantos y habiendo tan pocas camas.
-No hijo, hoy no nos vamos a dormir, ésta es la última noche que pasamos con papá.

Our good fortune allowed us to feel a sadness our parents never had time for.

"I think a lot of the time the reason that people pirate, is they want access to good music. And they don’t get it because the radio is so shit"

We all – adults and children, writers and readers – have an obligation to daydream. We have an obligation to imagine. It is easy to pretend that nobody can change anything, that we are in a world in which society is huge and the individual is less than nothing: an atom in a wall, a grain of rice in a rice field. But the truth is, individuals change their world over and over, individuals make the future, and they do it by imagining that things can be different.

Look around you: I mean it. Pause, for a moment and look around the room that you are in. I’m going to point out something so obvious that it tends to be forgotten. It’s this: that everything you can see, including the walls, was, at some point, imagined. Someone decided it was easier to sit on a chair than on the ground and imagined the chair. Someone had to imagine a way that I could talk to you in London right now without us all getting rained on.This room and the things in it, and all the other things in this building, this city, exist because, over and over and over, people imagined things.

We have an obligation to tell our politicians what we want, to vote against politicians of whatever party who do not understand the value of reading in creating worthwhile citizens, who do not want to act to preserve and protect knowledge and encourage literacy. This is not a matter of party politics. This is a matter of common humanity.

Albert Einstein was asked once how we could make our children intelligent. His reply was both simple and wise. “If you want your children to be intelligent,” he said, “read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” He understood the value of reading, and of imagining. I hope we can give our children a world in which they will read, and be read to, and imagine, and understand.
