Lines Of Sight
10 May 2022
The world is full of lines. I noticed several in the above picture. There are the four broad lines, of course: grass, sand, sea and sky. But notice the white rocky edge at the end of the lawn, and the wet patch of sand at the end of the beach, and the breaking surf where the sea begins, and the line between the shallow and the deep ocean, and the thin white horizon, and what looks like three layers of sky… Sometimes, lines are there, whether you draw them or not.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
