Operation Oysterhood: 17 September

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

In Polish, we say ‘kto daje i odbiera ten się w piekle poniewiera’. Roughly: who gives and then takes away, languishes in hell. Someone’s actions today made me think of it. If this kind of power play wasn’t simply sad and petty, I would fight for a just resolution, but sometimes the best option is to simply walk away and count one’s blessing that this sort of person is out of one’s life. Good riddance, me thinks.

The rest of the day was just work, work, work, and lovely meetings to discuss exciting book projects. I received an email about a novel that made my day – I am going to bed smiling from ear to ear.

And tomorrow …

Oudrif. Oudrif. Oudrif.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

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