Walking up the main street of Dorrigo a few days ago, I crossed paths with a friend I hadn’t seen for a while. We were just chatting about things that happen and changes that come and she said something that had me scrabbling around the bottom of my bag for a pen. She is one of the reasons I love this community; a transitional place between ocean and hinterland, with a crispness in the air that corresponds to a keen conversational habit of getting to the point.

All I can say is ‘amen to that’ . To build up and not tear down, to encourage and not douse a flicker of hope, to be the spit and polish for someone who fell over and got a bit grubby and not the tar and feathers that stick and hurt like blazes to get rid of, to be a solution and not a problem.
