About me

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes – Gandhi

Berkeley 50 yrs (2)I’m Joyce Hopewell.

Writer, reader, dancer, singer, teacher, nature lover, astrological psychologist, motorhome traveller, Senior Research Associate in the field of Child Development and Human Relations (aka grandmother, one of the best roles around!).

I’d like to see a better, fairer world, for people, for wildlife and for our children who are the future.

I write about what interests me, what makes me stop, ponder, think, observe. Sometimes I go back, via my photo archive, to places I’ve been or to things that I’ve seen, and write about them too.

Words and opinions my own, most images likewise, a few from open download sites.
