It’s Tuesday, one of my favorite days of the week. Time to join Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is S and so I share a few photographs of Sea Creatures from the Oceanarium here in Singapore.

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” 
― Mahatma Gandhi

“The sea is emotion incarnate. It loves, hates, and weeps. It defies all attempts to capture it with words and rejects all shackles. No matter what you say about it, there is always that which you can’t.” 
― Christopher PaoliniEragon

“Alive without breath,
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail never clinking.” 
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Hobbit

― Ursula K. Le GuinCatwings

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. 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 served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. 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, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).

  1. hi Myra,
    thank you for the quotation too:
    “You must not lose faith in humanity.
    Humanity is like an ocean;
    if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
    the ocean does not become dirty.”
    ― Mahatma Gandhi
    P.S.:
    optimism is good. Let’s hope that some drops from the Fukushima nuclear disaster will not spoil the Pacific Ocean …
