OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
‘Eish. Yoh. Yoh. Yoh. Yoh. Yoh!’ A voice message sent to CapeTalk earlier today to summarise what the SONA would contain in six words. I chuckled.
I know I should have listened to the real thing, but I just couldn’t. I will read about it tomorrow. The only thing I regret is that I did not hear Siphokazi Jonas’s performance tonight, but I hope the video will become available in time, too.
Among all her other amazing achievements, Siphokazi is New Contrast‘s newly appointed poetry editor (if there ever was a reason to submit/subscribe to the magazine! – and when you contact the business manager – moi :) – about subscribing, I will be delighted to assist).
This was another, mostly heavy, long day. Some things got done, others didn’t, but I am as kind to myself as I can be and just repeat, ‘tomorrow is another day’.
I went to the Mainland China Food Market in Claremont in the morning and got myself lots of dim sum and a few BBQ buns. Dinner was two steamed BBQ buns, a few dumplings and leftover red wine. Simple bliss.
Early night, me thinks.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
