Sunday Scribblings "Invisible"

G'Day,
The Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is "Invisible". And.....it is a milestone prompt for our site as our hostess Laini tells us that it is the 250Th prompt. Wow.
So let's see where this takes me. I have an idea , a feeling, what can I make from it?

When I was a child I wanted to be invisible. To be able to sneak into a room and listen or watch a strange adult happening or conversation. I remember being sooooo frustrated by the closed lounge room door and forbidden room beyond at my grand parents home at Christmas time. The terrible wait until my cousins arrived and we were allowed to see inside.
I wanted to be invisible so I could be there but not have to participate as well as snoop at what was going on.

Have you ever been invisible?
Become invisible against your will.
I hate it......
It is a far cry from the little girl who wanted to be invisible.
The invisibility of being on the side lines and cut out of a conversation
Left behind or not quick enough to keep up, or as if you are superfluous, unneeded, unwanted.
To wander off and nobody noticed you leave.
You can never be so alone as you are in a crowded room.
Why do people do that to each other.
Have you ever been made invisible because a newer brighter personality has entered the scene.
Now did it feel?
Was it you ?
Or have you taken pleasure in the ego building that it gave you to do that to some one else.
Human nature puzzles me.
Heaps.

The pic above is one taken a bit over a week ago in the low clouds on the side of Mt Kosciusko.
That's all.
Bye. Love Linda.

Wise words Linda. OK, you don't need to be the star but at least feel as though others know you're there.

Oh, yes! Been there, and done all those things - when little.
Experienced all those irritating moments - when older.
Comes great age, and wisdom(?) and
one can say: 'Here I am, this is me, take it or leave it - nipper!

The photo is mysterious, an invisible mountain! Your observations summarize much wisdom, from a child's point of view and later, how we suffer . . .

Linda, I'm starting a new Memories on Mondays meme on my blog. Add a link there to any of the cool things you've written, or write a new one to share with us!

Wow, Linda, what a great take on invisible!! I was thinking of different ways to use the word and being invisible against our will never occured to me, yet how many of us haven't felt that way at one time or another?! THanks for reminding us how it feels to be left out or pushed aside. Good job!!

I've just been given a link to your blog by Dennis Ouellette, and I enjoyed your latest post. I've often felt that 'invisible feeling' thing, but mostly I enjoy it, for it lets me study what's going on around me!
Nice to 'meet' you!
