Operation Oysterhood: 17 August

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

When your friend is an artist :)

Tour the Cape: Paarden Eiland, Parow, Greenpoint, Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Simon’s Town and Lakeside. The sun was shining and Glinka was playing on FMR and talk radio was great company in the car. The only calm, motionless hour of the day was coffee with my friend Debbie, who is a wonderful artist and her artworks – from a simple sketch to an elaborate oil painting – always make me happy. Today, she gave me the above sketch and made coffee for me in front of her fireplace.

An Island reprint ready for distribution.

In the evening, a quiet, simple dinner with my love – I cooked fish for us and had to smuggle the leftovers into the house without Salieri noticing. We have five full days of the special diet behind us and we are doing better and better with every day. I am so proud of her.

Haiti, Afghanistan, climate change disasters. I am aware. I am reading. But it is too much to comprehend.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
