Operation Oysterhood: 4 September

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

— @HaggardHawks

One of those days during which I went from one project to another (my own and other people’s), switching back and forth between different tasks, from early morning until evening with only a break for lunch. I slept well again the previous night, but there was lots of coffee during the day to keep going anyway. The day’s reward was a dinner with another couple in their home with the above incredible view from the parking lot of the building. Physical distancing was observed, good conversation and delicious food have been had, and we were having such a great time that we only remembered about the curfew on the way home through the nearly entirely empty streets of Cape Town just before midnight … Luckily, no one stopped us to inquire what we were up to.

A chaotic, tiring week, but a lot has been achieved, loadshedding and all. There will be rest during the weekend. I look forward to it.

Good night.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
