Monday 3 August 2020, Day 64 of Level 3, after 66 days of Levels 5 and 4, 130 days of Lockdown 😱😷
Corona Gratitude 🙏
#Grateful for a cooler but equally beautiful day, overcast, and now ending with rain, earlier than was forecast to start, the kitty cats getting drenched outside; for starting my day in a different manner, taking an early walk so that I could take photographs of Florence Poretti, taking an Aqua Class in the Tidal Pool, with such fabulous music such as ‘Rock around the Clock’, ‘Obladi Oblada’ and more, that I started dancing 💃 at the edge of the pool; for meeting a very friendly young man who used to jog past me in our early morning Exercise times in Level 4, turning out to be Brian Van Hansen, on whose photography website I’ve been posting some pics, what a small world; for the City of Cape Town having finally removed all the kelp we gathered into piles more than 2 weeks ago; for amazing assistance today from my Alex, Darren Combrink and his Robert Anderson, and Lindsey Killops Gibaud, in meeting the technical challenges of applying for two jobs, feeling a little like two steps forward and two backward today, with a Full Moon edge to it; for some good news about the sale of my Hermanus house, with great thanks to Johan Prins; for a Bakoven walk, seeing far too much litter; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙
My Blogpost today was the monthly update of the restaurants which have closed down since Lockdown, 53 now, an increase of 13 since the end of June 😢😢😢.
I realize that I’m very out of date technically, and I liked Lindsey talking about our ‘experiential learning’, I having learnt more today than I have done in a number of years. Alex was very patient with my numerous questions. ❤️
We are in for a winter week, after the lovely weekend weather. And the Full Moon rain is great for the garden. ☔️☔️☔️

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March and to continue until 16 April, subsequently extended to 30 April, lowered to Level 4 from 1 May, and lowered to Level 3 from 1 June, is an unprecedented event in my lifetime. I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
