Operation Oysterhood: 6 October

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

— @HaggardHawks

We launched The Skipper’s Daughter at the Alma Café earlier tonight. Full house, wonderful audience, including two real skippers, great food and wine, and Nancy’s amazing stories – it was all pure joy! Books have been sold and signed.

The rest of the day was cover design discussions, tons of admin and the quarterly trip to the post office with boxes of copies of the latest New Contrast issue ready to set sail into the world.

I am beyond tired again and cannot remember what it felt like to be on holiday any longer …

I did see my counsellor again. She had been away on sick leave, but she is back in her chair, welcoming people to tell their stories on her comfy couch.

Exhausted, but going to bed a happy publisher.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local. Get vaccinated, please.

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