Suburban Ups And Downs
28 February 2022
Go outside the city centre and its mommy town – a place where husbands and wives raise offspring. I don’t like living in places where cars are compulsory, but I have to say that the ups and downs of the topography and the green carpet extending from hill to hill is beautiful. You can – I suppose – in theory – catch a bus. But I haven’t seen the inside of a car for close to 11 months (except for one quick excursion with a friend in London). And I love being without the damn headache. This suburb, close to Derriford, is particularly beautiful.

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.
