Roanne “Roxy” Marr is reading to Justin Wade-Ryan, at the temporarily extended Night Shelter, in Somerset West, Western Cape, on April 23. Both are staying here during lockdown in South Africa in response to the coronavirus.
Marr has just re-found a lost treasure: “Women who run with the wolves,” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, in a pile of books someone just donated.
Marr, who normally lives on a farm near Port Elizabeth, was caught out by lockdown on a hitch-hiking road trip to take care of a friend and some belongings in Atlantis. She had reached Somerset West, on her way back to Port Elizabeth, when the lockdown announcement came. “I didn’t have bus fare,” she said. “I landed up on the streets.”
Initially, Marr said she was taken care of by a group of homeless people she had been kind to when she lived in a flat in Somerset West years ago. “They remembered,” said. But as lockdown started, the streets became lonely and empty. She was desperately seeking shelter, and clamored to get picked up by the SAPS. And that, eventually, landed her here.
Marr soon hopes to seek “essential” permission for an interstate lift so she can get to her son in rehab in Port Elizabeth and tell him, personally, that her mother passed away a few weeks ago. PHOTO: EVA-LOTTA JANSSON
