Long nights, short days.
The days are shortest in June and the reduced hours of sunlight definitely affect our moods. This June not only was the light intensity diminished but we experienced days and days of constant rain and it felt as if everyone had gone into their burrows to hibernate.
Part of my duties in my role with Galston Community News is to distribute the magazines throughout the community. This is something which I enjoy, as I get to witness the daily activity of people and businesses, stumble across old acquaintances and form new bonds. The day after the big wet, the sun was streaming, warming the air and as it seemed, warming people’s spirits. Everyone was smiling and open and ready for a chat. People were holding doors open for others, conversing in elevators, being generous, courteous, polite, helpful and thoughtful. It seemed everyone had been rejuvenated, they had survived the cold, the rain and the gloom and they were recharged ready to enjoy the world. It was a great day!
