Operation Oysterhood: 10 February

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

Karavan Press poetry

‘It’s time to be responsible. It’s time to take care,’ said Rafa about the small crowds after his first-round win at the Australian Open. The Down Under Grand Slam is good for bouts of insomnia. There is always something to keep you occupied after two a.m. …

This morning the light was dancing on my bed and I thought that I should take a picture of it. Is there a better way to start the day than with coffee and poetry and a dancing morning light?

The rest of the day was work, work, work, until it was time for loadshedding at four p.m. I decided to go for a longish walk and buy a few needed things for the house and The Cats. Then I read the last of the Harry Bosch novels … A kind of enforced personal workloadshedding.

We soldier on.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

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