The moon is the metaphor of timeless knowledge, the overarching concept that is unifying and brings a degree of peace and connectedness to the story, holding the secrets of all time. It is the same moon that shone on our great great grandparents and the same moon that will be shining on our children's grandchildren some day.

BRING DOWN THE MOON is not autobiographical although they do say there's a story in all of us! In the story:

"...Sandra opened the ebony box, richly inlaid with mother of pearl. Carefully, she clicked a lever inside the box.'Goodness, that's the sort of thing you see on the Antiques Road Show! Mind you it's probably not old, old but still, a box with a secret compartment, you did brilliantly to spot that.'

'Yes but wait Polly, just look what"s inside!'

When Sandra pulled out an old book, a few loose leaves fell out which she straightened and replaced neatly behind the cover. On the top was a drawing, a sketch done in pen and ink showing a lady with two small children standing by atree. By some miracle Sandra, had found herself flicking through the pages, engrossed.

'What is it, some sort of manuscript? Have you read it yet?'

'No, I've just flicked through the pages so far. It looks like it's someone's memoirs. Apart from the beginning, it's written almost completely as reflections headed in sections, perhaps ready to be turned into chapters.'Bring Down The Moon', nice title, might even belong to someone famous,'Sandra mused.

'Now you really are romancing. Mind you, I wouldn't mind being on that road show, I used to like Michael Aspel!'"

and one day in the summer, like a story within a story, on a trip to Yorkshire, we were at the Antiques

Road Show..well worth a visit...have a look at the clip below.
