Operation Oysterhood: 2 November

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

A day at sea: it started with a walk along the sea with my love, it continued with a book cover that includes elements of the sea in its design, and ended in Muizenberg and Kalk Bay with two Karavan Press authors, discussing our respective projects. I returned home with a great sense of accomplishment.

In the early afternoon, Salieri and I worked together at the computer. She is again here, on top of all the papers, performing her evening cleaning ritual after all the hard work while I type. Glinka also decided to join us, but she is on top of the bookshelf next to my desk.

I managed to get proper cat food on my way home this evening, but had no energy left for proper human food and cooking. So …

Viennas from Peregrine. They remind me of the Viennas one could get in Poland and Austria during my childhood (and they do come from a German butcher in Grabouw).

And now it is time for bed. It has been another looooong day. One foot in front of the other, Karina. Deep breaths!

(Tomorrow is … a day of hope for sanity and empathy, or … another four years of tangerine psychopathy – may the gods and goddesses of all good things save us, she casts a spell and prays for a miracle!)

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

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