A Sense of Wonder

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of a least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.” – Rachel Carson, naturalist and author

Research for Volume 2 continues. NLB’s reference section is housed in an amazing building, and supported by knowledgeable professionals. We found some useful data, and also discovered that a trip to the National Archives will be necessary.

So little seems to be known about the area between Sungei Seletar and Sungei Punggol that we have started a Timeline. As more information comes to hand, this list will grow.

At the risk of sounding certifiable, we think some of the trees around here have personalities and deserve to be more than mere numbers. The hunt is on for suitable names. There was also a long list of plants in the Airbase that needed attention. A website dedicated to all things botanical at Seletar Airbase seemed the way to go – please check out Seletar Botanicals. It will be nice to help our children keep alive their inborn sense of wonder 🙂
