The Dress And All Its Glory

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s purple. And, I’ll go even farther to say that it isn’t a cat at all, it’s actually (and obviously) a dog. There’s just no question. It’s a purple dog. I’ve never been more sure of anything in my entire life.

I am shocked at how many people are still talking about some random person’s dress… three days after they posted it. Really? Our lives have really been reduced to arguing over the color of someone else’s wardrobe, a stranger, no less? Do we really have nothing else to think about?

I think it’s sad that people are so desperate to be a part of something that they obsess over something so… Inconsequential. Does it really matter?

I just feel like this shows the insecurity of most of us as humans. We have purpose and potential, and our time should be more valuable than fighting over a stranger’s dress.

It shows our greater need to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, a perfectly reasonable and valid need. I just think it’s sad that we don’t feel that connection to ourselves or others except in the context of a petty internet argument.

It’s been three days now that I’ve seen that dress clogging my news feed. Let it go.

  1. Yeah I don’t get it either. I often wonder why certain items “break the internet” or go viral. So many distractions in a world that is often confusing and overwhelming. I strive to focus on messages and symbols that guide and inspire me. But that’s just me šŸ™‚

  2. Thankfully I am not on FB. šŸ™‚ and had I read this post prior to the Main BBC News showing the said ‘Dress’ and walking the streets to ask people what colour THEY thought it was I wouldn’t have had a clue as to what you were talking about LOL..
    A pity the homeless, the starving, and the children dying everday in war torn countries couldn’t get the same media coverage..

    Wishing you a wonderful new week.. Love and Hugs..
