Who else is in Gauteng? Who else feels claustrophobic again?

Covid-19 in SA: 1 941 119 cases and 60 038 deaths recorded



I am angry that a virus is in the world just beyond my front door. I am angry that my world has become, once again, just this little space shared with 3 other humans and 2 cats. I am angry because I know that out there, these 2 weeks may be the final straw for other small businesses. I am angry that they still haven’t taken responsibility for sending death into this world when we all know they were experimenting with things best left alone. I am angry that 60,000 South Africans paid with their lives already.


My mind debates on not wanting a vaccine and wishing I already had it. The 1 in 1000s that have a negative reaction scares me – but I am also jealous of those that have that little bit of extra comfort knowing they have a vaccine coursing through their veins. I know I have to have it to in future be able to travel and have a normal life, but what if I’m that 1 that has a severe negative reaction? What if…


As ons net vroeër grenste toegemaak het of mense laat isoleer het wat teruggevlieg het uit Italië of meer mense dit ernstig opgeneem het reg aan die begin… dit kon soveel anders gewees het.

As jy erens sit en alleen voel, reik uit na iemand – al is dit oor die foon.

Net vandag, net vir jou
‘n drukkie in jou oor
‘n soentjie op jou hart
net jy sal weet, want dis net vir jou
