  1. Oh it’s beautiful! Simple few lines but reading it creates a beautiful aura! Loved it! โค๏ธ

    And hey, I’ve nominated you further for the Sunshine Blogger Award with my set of questions. Will be very eagerly waiting for your answers to them!

    1. Thank you so much, Ahiri – you’re very kind! Unfortunately, I don’t participate in blogger awards, but I truly appreciate your nomination.

      Yours,
      David

        1. You are welcome ๐Ÿ™‚

          BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’ because that is my first name. The word ‘ben’ means ‘son of’ in Hebrew. I know my pen name is confusing… I’m sorry!

          ๐Ÿ’–
          David

          1. Oh okay! Actually I wasn’t really in knowing terms with Hebrew ๐Ÿ˜Š!
            Well fine, David ๐Ÿ˜‰!

            And hey! Don’t say sorry.. here’s nothing to feel sorry about ๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. My head is crammed with useless information. Thereโ€™s a group of hopeful skywatchers who speculated weโ€™ll get to see Betelgeuse go supernova next year, because it recently dimmed. But, the general consensus holds that the dimming was a cyclical event that occasionally happens to Betelgeuse, and that Betelgeuse will explode anytime within the next hundred thousand years. I had been in the hopeful camp, but Iโ€™m not an astronomer of any stripe or caliber. I just think itโ€™s cool that thereโ€™s a small chance the moon might have some competition for a few months within in our lifetimes.
