Are you up for a challenge?

This is just a quickie post…

In fact it’s such a quickie shorty for me that my WordPress editor doesn’t know what to make of it.

So, here’s my challenge to you:

Have you ever been ignored?

Have you ever ignored someone?

If you’re human, chances are, your answer will be “Yes” to both.

I read a post earlier…

while I was ignoring a task, a challenge, which I gave myself to do today – I’ll do it this weekend. Maybe.

…which said that this weekend: “We may be consumed with what we or others have hidden, are in denial of, are enraged by, or by the simple act of ignoring or being ignored.”

I’m not going to link to the post… Why? Because…

If you ask I will give you the link. If those words are from your post, feel free to say so and add a link.

Here’s the challenge – Put the term “ignored” into Google or Goodreads (one of my favourite places to search), and whatever comes up and catches your attention so much that you can’t ignore it, share it in a post and say something about it… such as why you couldn’t ignore it.

That’s it…

Oh, and pingback, add the link in the comments… if you dare. I dare you πŸ˜‰

  1. Well, I could ignore this πŸ˜‰ but I put ‘ignore’ into Goodreads, and this was what my eyes landed on immediately (and which I think I can’t ignore, as it so perfectly describes to me the political state in this country): β€œImagine the people who believe such things and who are not ashamed to ignore, totally, all the patient findings of thinking minds through all the centuries since the Bible was written. And it is these ignorant people, the most uneducated, the most unimaginative, the most unthinking among us, who would make themselves the guides and leaders of us all; who would force their feeble and childish beliefs on us; who would invade our schools and libraries and homes. I personally resent it bitterly.”

    1. Thank you, Julie, for taking up the challenge and for your words in your post which inspired it πŸ™‚

      Ha! That is excellent!

      One of the reasons I love searching in Goodreads is because someone somewhere said something which expresses the moment, the feeling, the experience beautifully.
