Operation Oysterhood: 25 March

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

Joy Watson and Frankie Murrey at the Opening Bash of #OBF2022

Friday, but not the end of the working week. I met with Catrina, Karavan Press’s literary agent, for coffee this morning, and we discussed future plans and possibilities.

Some admin, many emails, eBook formatting and a short chat with Mom and Krystian followed. In the late afternoon, it was time for the Opening Bash of the 2022 Open Book Festival!

The Fugard Theatre is no more and so much else belongs to a distant, pre-pandemic past, but – somehow, against all the odds – here we are, having another Open Book Festival. Although almost everything about it feels different this time, I am sure that it will be as thought-provoking and inspiring as always. It is simply miraculous to see it back on Cape Town’s events calendar. And I love the new venue: Bertha House. Only five minutes away from home :)

In the evening, my love and I had dinner with his family at The Hoghouse. Delicious as ever!

Beauty sleep, here I come!

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

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