P J French


Hi I’m Peter French.

I’m not old, but I’m no longer chronologically young. When I fall, I don’t bounce like I used to but I still get up and try again.

I’ve travelled but not extensively, I’ve been to places that I wanted to go to. And there are more on the list.

I’ve had thoughts, some were true, others were fiction. Sometimes things I thought were true were actually fiction and vice versa.

Thoughts are the stories we tell ourselves to paint a picture of the world as we understand it.

Transcribing stories from thoughts into words is an art that I am learning. Part of the trick seems to involve recognising when you’ve gone down a mental dead end and not being afraid of the work of starting again.

Some words make up stories.

Some words describe thoughts.

Some stories are about descriptions of thoughts.
