Mr Jefferson’s Wall
26 May 2021
Walls. You love them. Don’t build walls, they say, it’s like there’s a wall between us, they say, walls don’t work… But I like the idea that walls mark where the boundaries are (a lot of folks don’t understand boundaries). I like the idea that walls organize, and keep the peace between different sections, different territories, different ideas. Church and State. Family boundaries. Civic consideration. Oh, I like walls just fine. Plus, some of em are really old and pretty.

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.
