Here are some pictures -
family and their background,
my education,
theatre ...

In this section I started with the idea of providing some bits of photo albums. My aim also was to supplement the 'Mini-Autobiography' and give a context for the written material. The main difference from this start point is that 'Gallery' seems to quite an extent to have taken over the autobiographical function.

So: a personal context and a social context in terms of various activities: illustrated!

(Important NB: This section ('Gallery') is part of my website. If you got to it through Google, I did not intend it to come up as a separate item. My main motive for setting up the website was to make accessible a number of articles by me. These record the history of courses, also work with organisations and a performing group, where we worked with co-operative structures and collective decision-making. PLEASE look at those in the website. The navigation bar for the website is on the left. Click on 'Home' to get the whole website - 'Gallery' is only intended to provide some context!)

Groups and Organisation - -

Here are some people and places (wish there were a few more) of that Poly and S-W London College time - described mainly in History and Design of Courses. 'A 5-Language Laboratory' is described (with nice pictures!) in Performance Group, Travels and Growth Movement. Structures and Exercises also provide, I think, some useful details.

Grandchildren - -

Offspring bring a wonderful vertical symmetry: grandparents at the top, grandchildren at the bottom. One day it could extend to great-grandchildren! It's happening more often these days. Perhaps one day it will even happen to me - I have no plans to prevent it... (nor to encourage it either!)
