Three Things About Me
I was born on Saint Patrick’s Day.
I dislike driving
I love eating soggy cereal.
My Answers To Ace’s Questions
- What does freedom mean to you? Everything good. But, at same time, there can be a danger in having too much freedom. Freedom allows for choice, however. And life is about choices. You always have to make a choice. Even not choosing is a choice.
- What’s one thing you do without thinking? Sing.
- Favorite childhood memory? Going to Disney World.
- If the whole world could hear you for three words, what would you say? We a family.
- Do you think perception or belief comes first? Both. I think it changes from situation to situation and person to person. And I think this David Bowie lyric sums it up (“Word On Wing”): “Just because I believe, don’t mean I don’t think as well”.
My Nominees: Some great blogs to check out if you’re looking for something new to read and follow.

I loved your answers to my questions…especially the last one (great David Bowie lyric 🙌🏻) and your chosen three words!! Congrats to you and your nominees!!!! Here’s to many more awards!!!! Grateful for you, dear friend!!! Much love 🖤🖤🤗
It seems hard to find people who like soggy cereal, but there must be a small percentage out there. And for those who like soggy cereal it’s okay, because I like it too. Thanks a lot for nominating me. It was fun participating. Thanks, too, for always spreading love and positivity and appreciation. Have a fantastic rest of your day! 🙂
Ah hahaha, you’re so funny! 😂 Some soggy cereal fan will find great joy in knowing you 😂! And of course, you absolutely deserve it! Aww you’re so kind, I appreciate you!!!! Keep inspiring 🤍
Haha. This is funny: “Some soggy cereal fan will find great joy in knowing you!” I hope to meet a few more soggy cereal fans out there. I know they must be hiding somewhere. Thanks again! 🤍🤍🤍
Congratulations! Looking at an award post after a very long time.
Thanks, Kritika. I was lucky to be nominated. Hope you’re doing well!
Hope you get more awards. All the best! Congratulations! I am doing good. Thank you. Stay Safe.
Big congrats, Ben.
Thanks so much, Yassy!
You are very welcome, Ben.
Great post and a well deserved award. The questions were great and the answer was equally just as great especially the last one about perception and belief because as you said it depends on the person and the situation and it’s hard to give a definite answer when the only thing that’s constant in this world is change and that’s a process we all undergo everyday.
Cool. Thanks for reading. You’re right in that it seems a bit of the chicken or egg: which came first? I like what you said, because it might be a universal truth: the only real “constant in this world is change”. And yes, everyday things are changing and evolving even if we can notice. And again agree with you in that the person and situation matters as well. Thanks as always for leaving your deep thoughts!
Always a joy Benjamin!
You’re an Irish poet! You’re in with a good crowd. 🙂 Congratulations!
I am a little bit Irish, in fact. And hopefully I can get a little four-leaf clover luck as well. Thanks so much!
Congratulations Benjamin! I smiled reading about the soggy cereal because I too love soggy cereal, lol.
Thanks. Oh, that’s nice to hear! Almost nobody loves soggy cereal. I feel many have opinions on this and they like it crunchy only. It’s cool you’re one who of the same cereal mind with me. 🙂
Haha, I bet you there are more people out there who love but afraid to say it out loud.
You’re probably right! You really probably are. Hopefully a few more will show up now.
Congratulations! I enjoyed reading the answers!
Thanks, my friend!!!!!!!
Congratulations Ben, it was great reading your answers and I’m looking forward to checking out the other blogs/writers you mentioned.
Thank you! Hope you’ll enjoy them. And thanks for reading and commenting and being groovy!
😆 Well, you’re pretty rad so it’s easy.
Thanks. I’ll take being rad. 😆
Hiya Ben! Congratulations on the award! And OMG I thought I was the only one who liked soggy cereal.
Hey, thanks! I’m glad to hear you like soggy cereal. I feel we’re starting to build a soggy-cereal team. We’re at like 3 or 4 people. Sure there are many, many more.
Soggy cereal is the bomb. Or for me, I like it when it’s half soggy and crispy. Maybe I’m weird, but it’s great to know that there are others like this too. Thanks for this post!
Half soggy and crispy is good also. No, it’s good to know others are of a like mind. I feel soggy-cereal eaters get put down a bit sometimes. Most perhaps good the other way. But now I’m seeing some like it. So that’s cool. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
Oh wow! First of all Congratulations!
And Is that my name😁😁 Thank you Benjamin!
This is so cool, A way to know about each other!
I will definitely be posting one.
Yes, your name. I was totally supposed to write it on your blog, but I wasn’t sure if you did awards. But I look forward to reading your answers soon! Thanks a lot and congrats to you! 🙂
Yes, I never did awards, I would like to know more about it! It’s my pleasure and thank you:)
You’re welcome again. You should try one then, see how it works out. 🙂
Congrats! You’re doing great. You’re one of my favorite poets. Keep inspiring.
Thanks a lot! So thankful for your support! You keep doing the same as well!
Congratulations Benjamin…you deserve this one and all the awards…your blog is always fascinating and you, yourself so talented and supportive of the writing community..You are a very original poet and it’s so nice to see you being recognized on WordPress.. I love your poems…
THANKS! That’s really generous. And I truly am happy to be able to connect with you and read your work! Have a good start to your week!
Congrats, Ben 😊 I don’t know any other blogger who spreads as much sunshine as you ☀️ It’s well-deserved. Enjoy your Sunday👌
Thanks for saying so. That’s special to hear. My blogging/writer soul blushes at these words. 🙂
So many fun and lovely things here. Love it all. Have to admit I’m not on the soggy-cereal fan team though! 😅 Though I’m quite sure I *am* on the soggy-cereal-lovers fan team. ;)) :)) Congrats on the award, and lovely post, beautifully done. 🙏🌤💗 xoxoxo
Haha. Soggy-cereal seems to be a thumbs-down for most people. But that’s cool you’re still willing to cheer it on. “Unity in diversity!” Thanks so much for taking the time to read and commenting! Your support has been a blessing this last year!
Hehe yes! Unity in diversity, beautifully put. :)) Thanks for producing such lovely posts. Likewise I appreciate the blessing of all your support. Have a great rest of your evening and onwards. 💛
Thanks. I think it’s quite an interesting concept. And thanks again for everything you share and give. Appreciate your friendship in this sometimes upside-down world. 💛
Congratulations Ben! 🎉💐 Sending you soggy cereals then haha just kidding.
Haha. Thanks. You’re the first person to ever send me soggy cereal for a gift. It’s very kind of you. I’ll never forget that. Made me smile big time 🙂
Hahaha I am glad I am the first one to send it as a gift 😂🤣 And who would not love a soggy cereal, right?
Yeah, I don’t know who would not love it. 😂 And thanks again. I’ll never forget your gift. Glad you it came from someone like you.
Congratulations Ben! That is some wonderful wonderful achievement now, isn’t it. Loved your answers. +1 for soggy cereal😁
Thank you so much for the nomination mate! It means a lot. I will not be posting awards on my site for sometime still, but I really thank you for the kindness.
I could answer some of them interesting questions tho,
1. Probably anywhere by the sea, maybe Bora Bora.
5. Three plus one in progress.
Wonderful job again. A four leaf clover to you!
Thanks so much, Shanyu! Glad to see another fellow soggy-cereal lover…. 😁 You’re welcome. Wanted to shout out your blog. Your writing is really quite beautiful. Awesome, three languages plus working on another. That’s incredible and I’m quite jealous. Lasagna a good choice! Nice to see some of your answers. Thanks for joining in. Appreciate it. Stay well!
My absolute pleasure friend. Now that really really means a lot. Thank you so much for your words. I am more than grateful. Have a wonderful day.
I don’t know it may happen or not — I promise to take you to Disneyland one day. It’s my dream to turn my blog in something like Disneyland (The Gondwanaland). It takes time but I want to do it, for us.😃
Thank you for nominating me. I appreciate it.
Thanks, Lokesh. You have a heart of a gold as they say. Stay well! Thanks for commenting and for all the support and well wishes! And you’re welcome!
Congrats on the award!! Interesting way to define freedom. Out of curiosity, why do you dislike driving?
Thanks a lot. Mmm. That question makes me thing. First, I guess I find it mostly boring, all the stopping and starting. And then also, I did have this car that would randomly shut off for no reason. I think something was wrong with the computer system. It would break down ever few months. And one time I was driving and in the middle of a turn it stopped working and I almost crashed into a wall. And another time I got stuck on a hill and it shut down. I think it made me dislike driving from there on out. So I guess those two reasons. I don’t actually dislike driving, but I guess I dislike what might happen from driving. Just as I’m not afraid of heights and I’m just afraid of the fall, or what happens when the fall ends. Thanks for making me think deeper on this. Have a great weekend!
Wow, you’ve sure had a lot of crazy encounters while driving! I would dislike driving as well if I went through those things haha. But those deep thoughts are interesting as well! Hope your weekend went great as well!
Haha, indeed! Thanks a lot! Hope you have a wonderful start to your week! Happy Monday to you!
well done. this is a significant feat in itself. keep growing.
Thanks big time, Sophia!
