Wide open spaces… what a place to grow wild. The wildflowers – themselves an intricate attraction – have the best view in the house. It is here that I gain perspective about the size of my triumphs and my troubles, the actual importance of those things I place importance on, and the value of stepping away. This any day – over the toxic timelines of antisocial media, the incessant insistence of attention slut screens, and the public ‘debates’ which never achieve either victory or conclusion.
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.
