The theme for this week’s challenge (as hosted by The Daily Post at WordPress) is a tad difficult: Growth. After 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.”
