Lotus, Unfold
10 March 2022
A little corner of Zen in the tropical plant greenhouse. Air pressure simulated to be very high on a mountain. I can just walk here, sit down, cross my legs, and start chanting old Buddhist mantras. Why not? A little bit of meditation and deep thinking is good for the soul. And then, also, a little bit of realism, and engaging with trivial matters, and just living a bit without over-analysis. The middle way. Nam myoho renge kyo.

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 petervanderwalt.com. 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.
