Long nights, short days.

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

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!
