Operation Oysterhood: 28 March

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

I promised my counsellor that before seeing her again I would do this for myself: a walk on my favourite beach – Noordhoek. I added the bucket of Kristen’s Kick Ass Ice Cream to the deal of my own accord.

Great writing session with my lovely writing group this morning, but confronting the material I am mining for my book is highly triggering for me.

The walk did me a world of good. The beach was nearly empty, the wind merciless, the ice-cold water froze my veins, but I loved every second of it. Even all the sand that I now have in my hair.

One can feel autumn in the air. The afternoon light is gorgeous this time of the year. And tomorrow it might rain …

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

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