Operation Oysterhood: 24 August

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

A day in four pictures.


One: A rare truce and closeness in our bed office this morning.


Two: Coffee with Roland at noon, to discuss an exciting literary cooperation, beginning within the next few days. With someone like Roland by my side, I am not afraid to confront anything, even a zombie apocalypse.


Three: Late, light lunch with Helen at the Food Barn in Noordhoek. With VINO!!! Health, books, editing, upcoming birthdays and possible book events were discussed. We believe in books and in kindness and in making literary magic happen (against impossible odds)!


Four: Late afternoon meeting with Melissa to discuss her third novel, Switchfoot, an invitation to an unusual book event, book sales, freaky waves and Frosty’s encounters with birds (he sat in on the conversation, looking completely innocent!). Melissa gave me this wonderful gift: a mask that I can stitch something into … and guess what: I have an idea!

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

“Physical distancing remains one of the key strategies to curb this pandemic.”
