Sounds • Pictures • Words is essentially a repository for my increasingly unwieldy and disparate collection of photographs, illustrations, drawings, music compositions, writings and more, gathered together in one place, largely for my own convenience.
I think of it as a library, rather than a showcase. In days gone by, it would have been – and at one point actually was – a shoebox.
So, if you’ve arrived here, either deliberately or by chance, and find any of the content edifying, entertaining, educational or even life-enhancing, then all the better.
In which case, please drop me a line, ‘like’, ‘share’, ‘comment’, ‘follow me’ and if you really insist, then consider a small donation to help keep things ticking over. For which I would be most grateful, of course.
And in case you were wondering about the meaning of the site’s subtitle, ‘the other side of here‘, it’s really whatever you want it to mean.
To me, it sounds like a place where unconventional and irreverent views thrive and accepted wisdom is questioned – a parallel universe, perhaps, or somewhere that exists only in the mind. And so it seemed like a good metaphor for my particular ‘take’ on life, as expressed here in Sounds • Pictures • Words.
And if that doesn’t get me a spot in Pseud’s Corner I don’t know what will. I generally don’t take myself as seriously as that paragraph might suggest.
Anyway, wherever it is, I like the sound of it and will go there one day. And in a sense I already have, as I used The Other Side Of Here as the title for one of the pieces of music on the Straight From The Source 2 album a few years ago – you can listen to the track and download it here.
