When I answer questions of a personal nature, Coldplay.com readers often get in touch with their own thoughts. So, we now have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday (with the question asker's permission) we open up a question to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I'll post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.
ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 200 words, to theoracle@coldplay.com before Thursday 28th April.

"I just wanted to ask what one should do if their parents don't allow them to do what they want with their life? My parents are quite strict and they don't think art is something good to do. When I told them that I wanted to take a vocational course on art they were really really angry and said they wouldn't let me. What do I do? Fiona"

Look forward to seeing your replies.
The Oracle
