ABC Wednesday Challenge -- I


It's ABC Wednesday again, and this week, the letter is I

I felt like an IDIOT all week. I had no IDEA what to write about for ABC Wednesday. I mean, IT IS St Patrick's Day, and all, But I just knew I was going to be INUNDATED with ICONS of IRELAND. I bear no ILL will toward the IRISH, but have already posted two St. Paddy's Day's ties, and I wanted to do something different. But I had no IDEA what.

A few weeks ago, I could have written about the INCLEMENT weather and shown pictures of ICE, or ICE FISHING. But the weather today was IDEAL.

I didn't think I was going to get any INTERESTING IDEAS INSIDE. So, I took a ride, trying to get INSPIRATION.

I saw the INDUSTRIAL area.




I saw the INTERNATIONAL Wildlife Refuge.



I saw the INS Office(Immigration and Naturalization Service), but I noticed they don't call themselves that anymore.



I saw INDEPENDENT dealers of INSURANCE and ICE CREAM.





I even saw the ILLUSIVE local IRON FIST, INCESSANTLY INVESTIGATING the alleys. INVULNERABLE, INVINCIBLE and almost INVISIBLE.



I just wasn't seeing any great blog ITEMS.

I wasn't alone on my quest, I was accompanied by a 2 year old IMP who likes to go for rides with me. By this time, she was getting bored, and asked if we could stop at the pet store to see the animals.

As I watched her INTRIGUE, I realized that my INSPIRATION had been with me all along.



Her INNOCENT INQUISITIVENESS was INSPIRATIONAL, and ILLUMINATING. At her age, she has an INSATIABLE need for INFORMATION.

But then I realized, so do I.

It seems to me INEXCUSABLE to remain IGNORANT. Especially IN this age of INTERNET INFLUENCE, where INFORMATION is INSTANTLY available. And for the "INTERNET IMPAIRED" there is still the more traditional form of INFORMATION:



So, my "I" word for the week is INFORMATION.

If we were all more INFORMED, the world would be a happier place.

Please take some time to check out what others were INSPIRED to blog about this week, at

ABC Wednesday,

and feel free to add your own blog to the list as we work our way through the alphabet.

  2. Inspiring post. I have not seen the International Wildlife Refuge since I was a child. I always got a kick out of the sign. (Humbug!)

  11. Very Ingenious! I must say the Internet is Invaluable for finding Information. (Didn't mean to do this with the 'I's -- it must be catching)
