Three things in life are truly important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; the third is to be kind – Henry James

Berkeley 50 yrs (2)Hello, I’m Joyce Hopewell, motorhome traveller, book addict, dancer, singer with Rock Choir and nature lover.

I’ve authored several books on astrological psychology – see my Amazon Page  for details –  and I’ve been a professional consultant in astrological psychology for 32 years. See my blog for more on this, and the website of the Astrological Psychology Association.

I come from a background of teaching and social work, and I’m currently enjoying being a travel writer as well as relishing my role as 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 the environment, 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.
