A message from Goldie No One …
November 18th, 2012
I had a great message left on my blog a few weeks ago. It was from an 11-year-old girl called Maddy Lohse, and here’s what she said:
‘Sometimes I act like Goldie in trying to be like a shadow. I dressed up as her for our book week at school. Lots of kids kept asking me who I was. I told them Goldie No One. They said it was an impressive name and I showed them the City of Lies book. It was a fun day doing the parade.’
I was very pleased to hear that I wasn’t the only person trying to master Concealment by Imitation of Nothingness. 🙂 And I was even more pleased when Maddy’s dad Neal sent me this photo of Maddy dressed as Goldie No One, ripped clothes, home-made mask and all. I gather she also tried talking to her friends in lies, but none of them got it. They were obviously not Keepers fans!
Isn’t it a great photo? I think Maddy looks mysterious and brave, and I can imagine her having the sort of adventures that Goldie has.
I’d love to see some more pictures of people dressed as characters from the Keepers. So – who’d like to send me a photo of themselves in costume? If you do, I’ll put them up on this blog, so that everyone can admire you. Send photos to lian at liantanner dot com. (I’ve written it like that to fool the spam bots. You – not being a robot – can use your wit and cunning to turn it into an email address.)
