Operation Oysterhood: 11 August

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

Karavan Press is going to be a home not only for Karavan Press books, but also for other titles in need of local distribution. Today, I met briefly with the first author whose books we will be distributing and she gave me a bunch of beautiful proteas to celebrate. I loved both her books as a reader, and it will be a great pleasure to represent them on the local market.

The rest of the day was one meeting and errand after another, all ending with good news for the present and the immediate future, but by the time I got home, there was no time left to cook dinner and my love and I ended up at HARU – always a treat.

I found a 20c coin today. And had an enlightening session with my counsellor. I haven’t slept properly for a week again now, but maybe tonight is the night. It’s up and down, up and down. Salieri and I are struggling to get her diet right, but I consulted with the vet today and I hope that I can implement the new strategy starting tomorrow.

Nearly six hundred Covid-deaths in the last twenty-four hours. The third wave nightmare continues.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

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