Sam’s Ses Challenge #14: Big

Welcome to this week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge.

Every weekend, Sam and I pick a word or phrase as the theme for the week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to post something Ses-related that you think fits with this week’s challenge.  Don’t know who the Ses are?… click here to find out.

Your contribution can be anything you want, a photograph, a short story… anything. Visit the main Sam’s Ses Challenge page to learn more.

The fun will be focused here on my blog, but feel free to play along on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Just be sure to link back to the challenge on whichever media you choose, to be certain Sam and I get to see it.

I hope you’ll join in.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge theme is Big.

Here’s my contribution:

The Big Tree is located in Redwood National & State Parks, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in California. And this tree deserves its name. At 304 feet high and 68 feet in circumference, it’s one of the very biggest trees on the planet.

It’s also estimated to be around 1500 years old, which must put it among the oldest things alive.

Beside its sheer dense massiveness, I felt even smaller than usual. But somehow that didn’t matter. I was just in awe.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge was itself partially inspired by Dense from the Daily Post, Spring – Wood from Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge and Old from Dale’s Thursday Challenge.

The first two Jaspa’s Journey adventures, The Great Migration and The Pride of London, are now available in both paperback and ebook formats! Click here for more information. The third instalment, Jaspa’s Waterloo, is scheduled to be released by Speaking Volumes later this year.
