You often find, as a resident of the Newcastle, Hunter and Manning regions, that when you meet somebody new, you have someone in common. If it’s six degrees of separation in big cities then it’s more like two degrees of separation for us. Our community is connected. We know each other.
I remember when I used to meet up with friends, go to the movies and read as many books as I wanted. I would literally put one book down and pick up another. I remember regularly ringing one of my best friends and enjoying epic two-hour conversations. I remember re-watching all seven seasons of The West Wing in a month (long before Netflix and binge watching were even a thing). I remember walking my dogs every day. I remember lazy Sunday afternoons on the couch. Sometimes I would even have a nap!
