Post Sign
17 August 2022

There’s always somewhere to go – and this sign tells you how far in every direction. But given the bright flowers and the serene garden where it stands, the decision has been made not to go anywhere at all… but to stay right here. Why use this bed – alive with red, purple and green – merely as a place to put a sign post? I love the vibrancy of the red, and the delicate pink and white wildflowers growing on the ancient wall. Follow directions and carry on? No, no thanks. We’ll much rather stay right here, and let the world pass us by if it’s in such a darn hurry…

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.
