OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
I edited a book earlier this year. Today, together with the author, I went to look at the finished product at the printers, before distribution. The title will be announced within days and I will share it the moment the author gives me the go-ahead. I can say that it is a debut and to watch the author hold the book in her hands for the first time today was truly special.
Fellow South Africans, throughout the entire presidential address I was waiting for some kind of a bomb to drop, but I go to bed with a heavy, but not heavier, heart. Wear a mask, keep social distancing, remember and honour the sacrifices made, drink to your heart’s content (also on weekends) and travel as safely as possible, be careful and responsible at all times – I think that is roughly the gist of it. I might be too tired to remember everything.
Highlight of the day: pizza and beer with my love for dinner. Simple but comforting.
Sore cheeks, not a good sign.
Tomorrow, we have a rough day ahead. May sleep be kind.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
