Welcome to justthoughtsnstuff

Welcome to justthoughtsnstuff.com (jtns), which I've been writing since 2010. Most of its 680 or so posts are about day to day things - highlights from the previous week, books read, places visited - accompanied by photos of what I've seen. There are some posts, though, that deal with emotional and economic abuse that went on for several decades and that came to a head in autumn 2010. Writing jtns became in part a way of coping with the consequences of the abuse and exploring them openly. This aspect of jtns is discussed in jtns an introduction and life-writing talk, with reference to trust: a family story. Writing jtns has also helped me to keep going. Now that the pain of the past years is easing, the frequency of jtns posts is beginning to lessen and in 2020, when the blog turns ten years old, they will stop. I hope that visitors enjoy reading the posts and looking at the photos and take a little from them. Frank, October 2018

new bridge, huzzah for the council - this time!, busy tenth week, conted awards at the sheldonian, mst res, terrific review of sb sweeney's facing the strange























A striking new bridge has been built over one of the streams feeding into the Great Book south of Aston, linking the Chimney road and the Ham Lane footpath. Huzzah for the council - this time!

On this sunny spring morning it was a pleasure to be out cycling.

Oxford tenth week but still no sign of things slowing down.

Loved attending the Department of Continuing Education awards ceremony at the Sheldonian Theatre on Wednesday. This weekend it's the MSt Residence.

A terrific review of SB Sweeney's Facing the Strange in the Oxford Times this week! It's written by Mary Lucille Hindmarch and I especially liked this paragraph: 'Facing the Strange is a kaleidoscope of intertwined lives told with verve, humour and - despite its darker themes - lightness of touch.'
