Sunrise 3 July 2021 - LAURA GREENDALE
There’s something quite magical about seeing your city wake up and come alive. It’s also fascinating to experience the stillness and notice what you become fixated on.
- A man on a bike – why is he up at this time? Where is he going? Where did he come from?
- Four ambulances – I hope whoever is in it is OK.
- Which street are those houses on? I’ve never seen them before. I wonder who lives there.
Etc . . .
As someone with firm Hull roots, I wanted to think about the generations before me and the city view they might have experienced today. I wondered whether the landscape was better/worse, more beautiful, more industrial.
The Hull Vigil has allowed me to pause for thought – I feel honoured to have been able to play a part.
