Old Man River
26 September 2022

Calm, easy, peaceful, lazy… a nap in the afternoon in the middle of the river. Or reflecting while looking at reflections. Or walking alongside, or riding a bike. Doesn’t really matter exactly how you touch the river – it touches you. And it goes back far, far, far… long before you were born. And it will go on and on and on… long after you’re gone. And you hum or whistle an old song. Old man river just keeps rolling along.

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.
