Operation Oysterhood: 30 March

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

I suppose it would have been difficult, if not impossible, to fit over three hundred people into a room during the pandemic, but we did manage to fit into a webinar. Thank you to all at All About Writing, to the inspiring Cathy Park Kelly and all who attended our webinar tonight. It was great fun, and it reminded me again: read, read, read, and be kind. The rest will follow.

I also saw my counsellor earlier today and spoke to her about the difficulties of writing my memoir, and I introduced her to Bobik and Rudolf and told her their stories. It fascinates me how all of these things are connected. How crucial it is to be seen, and to see; and, how sometimes you do not have to explain anything and yet those who love you understand.

At lunchtime, I was back at the Alma Café – they now offer Eggs Benedict. And they are really good. With the coffee Jono serves, the perfect treat. I walked home in the rain and remembered my grandfather always reminding me: ‘Karina, you are sweet, but not made out of sugar; you won’t melt in the rain.’

I didn’t.

Good night :)

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

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