Photo Journal/ Weekly Photo Challenge

The theme for this week’s challenge (as hosted by The Daily Post at WordPress) is a tad difficult: GrowthAfter much deliberation and thought, I decided to share this photo taken by my husband from Pulau Ubin, otherwise known as Old Singapore. It takes 5-6 years for a rubber tree to grow before harvesting of its sap can be collected in small buckets such as this.

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” 
― Anaïs Nin

How about you, dear friends? What is your photo that signifies “growth?”

She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she serves as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads or meeting up with her book club friends, she is smashing that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life.
