In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth.

I’m very much into growth but I’m very much against the idea of it. Growth is good but the idea is a fashion fad. Luckily, I was able to find a subversive representation of growth both in image and in video!

Here’s the literal ominous growth in a picture:

And here’s a delightful take on the idea of growth:

I'm a sardonic blogger, snapper, scribbler and rhymer; a virtual space invader who indulges in cheerful negativism, morbid self-deprecation and bleak humour.


  1. Hilarious. Thanks for sharing.



    1. You’re welcome! It’s good to have a bit of laugh sometimes 🙂

  2. I like subversive, Mara. It feels real and not a refined, pretty version of reality. When I hear the idea that every negative experience is an opportunity for growth, I’d rather be kicked out of the school of life like in the video. I prefer the lessons taught by positive experiences. They bring joy to life. 🙂



    1. Thank you for your kind words, as always! I couldn’t agree with you more. I prefer the unrefined and authentic whenever I have a choice 🙂 I hate cliches, no matter how true they might be. And I so much love your idea of learning your positive experiences! Much better than negative ones.
