I. Inspiring. A-Z challenge

Sir David Attenborough is an intelligent individual with high ideals. At times he appears quite impish! There’s no way you could use the word indifferent in regard to him. He appears to love insects and although he is an important person he’s not insensitive, inhospitable, impatient or intolerant - to the best of my knowledge anyhow.

He inspects the insects with great intensity and passion. During his illustrious career he’s been involved in imaginative ways to present inspired, informed commentary. I find him illuminating when he imparts his awesome knowledge. He’s been instrumental in instilling interesting facts into many young people.


And for the children with learning difficulties

This well informed child can discuss Issac Newton with illustrious individuals and inquires intensely. He isn’t ignorant!

But he can’t spell, so is called illiterate.

He’s incapable of absorbing what the ignoramus in the classroom grasps with infuriating ease. Intense effort leaves him itchy and irritable – he knows it’s important!

Progress is insignificant as inch by painful inch he grapples with letters and words. It’s so inconsistent, he wonders if he’s insane. He can spell inspirational one day, but not the next.

Ignorant environments are inhospitable if you can’t spell, interesting and eloquent conversation counts for nought. Insults abound.

Lynda, isn't he just wonderful!
Becky, When I was a teacher I loved getting the teenagers to play with words, I haven't done it for many years, and it's bringing back some fun memories. Try it!
Tara, thankyou. I really appreciate your encouragement.

Thank you for coming back and sharing your thoughts and concerns, Sue. And an ARC is an advance review copy - an uncorrected proof sent to reviewers.

A drabble a day keeps the doctor away. So many drabbles going on. Ha
