Roy Hackett

Roy Hackett died on August 2 at the age of ninety three. A lifelong campaigner for civil rights, he led the Bristol bus boycott.

I have posted links to three articles that explain why everyone should understand what he achieved, why we should remember him and why we should celebrate his life. The third article includes an interview with him late in his life.



I found out about IndieWeb last week, while reading through the forum for Classicpress, which I now use for all my sites, including this one.

I need to find out more.

The Time of Day

The Time of Day project began life in 2008 as a one-year project called One Day At A Time. I had a very simple idea. I believed that I had neglected my visual capacities and that I should train them. I should learn to notice things around me.

Then the project grew until it started to take up time I could better use for other writing. The captions for the photographs became essays that the photographs illustrated.

Let me explain why it grew, without me intending that it should; and why it now looks somewhat lighter and leaner.
