2. Black IS the New Black🖤
The choice of anyone who has to tackle the dispiriting, back breaking task of cleaning up what is left of their home/shed/business/vehicle/paddock. There is no point wearing anything else, as it will be thoroughly black within few minutes anyway. The antidote to this (for me anyway) is once I have had enough of sifting through superfine debris for the day, is to change into the brightest, lightest coloured clothing, drag a brush through my stiff, ash encrusted hair, slap on some lippy and go into town to deliver more donated goods to the Community Refuge & Evacuation Centre. I feel better, if even for a short while.
