FOWC with Fandango — Absorb


It’s March 1, 2023. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “absorb.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

    it has been a long time
    since i have been so absorbed
    in a book that i couldn’t put it down
    one of the great joys of reading
    which seems to have eluded me
    in recent years

    I love the idea of Fandango’s One-Word Challenge! It’s such a great way to get those creative juices flowing, and I think it’s awesome that it’s open to any type of post. Today’s word, “absorb,” is particularly interesting to me. It makes me think about how we take in information and experiences, and how they shape us as individuals. Do we absorb everything we encounter, or are there certain things that we filter out or reject? And how do we know what’s worth absorbing and what’s not? I think these are important questions to consider, especially in today’s fast-paced, information-overloaded world. I’m excited to see what kind of posts come out of today’s challenge!

      Yep, what’s worth absorbing and what’s not. I’ve tended to absorb everything, factually or in the sense of observing and remembering occurrences and things I’ve done or experienced. But there was a way nevertheless in which I wasn’t absorbing when I was young… in a way involving judgment. This is because the idea of forgiving can be imposed upon a child, or really anybody if they don’t finally object, as almost a gaslighting; do not judge, they say. Of course, I started judging bigger things not kf near necessity. Then I began noticing there was additional big stuff very worthy of judging in bad light that a category of people are regularly trying to carry out if they can.
