Dreams Gathering Dust: Remembering Forgotten Stories

I have always been drawn to the forgotten, to unearthing things that once meant so much to somebody, moments that have slipped out of sight and that I have chanced to stumble upon. Dreams Gathering Dust is a space for remembering forgotten stories, be they real or imagined, song or novel, film or photograph, newspaper cutting or curious incident.

Each piece is originally researched, where possible built around an interview with at least one person connected to the story. For this reason, posts may not be plentiful, but hopefully, from a modest starting point, they will be expansive.
