My Rock On Rocks
14 June 2022

I never forced anyone to bake me a cake. Never forced anyone to make a law or a break a law. Never wanted to make a statement, plant a flag, slog it out, debate it. I never pushed for unreasonable things. I never adopted a Marxist approach. Never believed in Critical Theories. Never wanted to dismantle society, deconstruct everything, throw all the rules away, or remake civilization. None of that was me, I wanted and took no part of it – and will not answer for it or support it now.

If you get that the person on that rocks is everything to me… That within that person lies not a lifestyle choice but a life, lived together, and the amount of respect, and love, and tenderness, and admiration, and gratitude, and awe I have for him…

The only activism I ever took part in was the personal fight to have what I have now. No more. No less.

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.
