Chinese-Americans, when you try to understand what things in you are Chinese, how do you separate what is peculiar to childhood, to poverty, insanities, one family, your mother who marked your growing with stories, from what is Chinese? What is Chinese tradition and what is the movies?

Maxine Hong-Kingston, The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts. 1976.

One of the most renowned Chinese-American writers of the last century, Maxine Hong-Kingston (湯婷婷) was born in Stockton, California in 1940 and became interested in writing from a young age. She attended UC Berkeley initially as an engineering major, but later switched to English and went on to teach English at high schools and universities in California and Hawaii. The Woman Warrior is often dubbed as a work of creative nonfiction for the way Hong-Kingston weaves elements of personal memoir and Chinese folktales into the narrative. The book is divided into five sections that trace interconnected stories, and explores themes such as cross-cultural and generational conflicts, gender, and cultural identity.

Week 24: Native plants

Equipment: Canon EOS 80D, 55 mm lens , Macro settings and I did not capture the f stop etc…

First time submitter but have been inspired by all the wonderful photography to push myself and try something new as a photographer …

I don’t know what the flower is, but it is part of a planted Monarch Butterfly way station where only native plants are grown to support Monarchs on their epic adventure from Mexico to Canada …

Thanks for creating such a fun blog….

Welcome to the group @eroticmiddle! I’m so glad you found us! It’s a Purple Coneflower and you captured it nicely! Nice touch with the macro setting! - MT
