The Black Cat, Blue Sea Award!!!

I’d never heard of this award before – it’s fresh and brand-new, for me! I don’t even own a cat; but, I do live on the Washington coast, five minutes away (by bicycle) from the mighty Pacific Ocean. Thank you to Shay at Staying Healthy Isn’t a Crime – Fitness is a Lifestyle Choice for nominating me for this award; we recently started following each other’s blogs, and hers is awesome! Check out her site sometime – she has loads of tips about fitness, workout regimens, and healthy foods for the active person.

Rules:
1. Anybody nominated can nominate eight other bloggers – but, you can’t nominate the person who nominated you!
2. The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator.
3. The questions you ask in the nomination can be any three questions, about anything that you choose.*
4. If any of the questions asked are perceived to be offensive to the nominee; or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee isn’t required to answer them.*

Questions posed to me, and my answers:
1. Which is worse, living the rest of your life poor or alone?
I would say that living poor is far worse than living alone. Also, ‘poor’ to me means more than material possessions or great wealth – a person can have a poor spirit; a poor outlook on life, or treat others quite poorly, from what I’ve seen – and, being alone doesn’t mean being lonely.

2. Do you think giving to charity makes someone a good person?
No. Giving, again, entails more than making a financial donation. One must give of themselves. Time. Energy. Real, physical efforts to enact real change in the lives of others. Those are far more valuable than giving money to some agency that merely spends said money on guilt-inducing advertisements.

3. What makes you think the world still has good in it?
Plenty of things! The five images below should answer this question succinctly:

My nominees are:
1. MeRaw: The Journey of My Left Foot
2. Chape Personal Trainer
3. The Well-Red Mage
4. Chris the Story Reading Ape’s Blog
5. Nimitode – A Vagabond
6. Mike Steeden: The Drivellings of Twatters
7. Espiritu en Fuego | A Fiery Spirit
8. Tikeetha T.: A Thomas Point of View

*Caveat: many blogs that I follow are “award-free,” so they are under no obligation to acknowledge or accept this award. In light of this, I have chosen not to list the questions I’d ask of them…I prefer to speak with, and query the bloggers whom I follow, directly!

    I love the good things of this world that you’ve selected. At first they all seemed quite random, but then I realised that actually they aren’t. You brought a smile to my dial, and that makes you pretty cool in my book! 😛

    I enjoyed reading your answers, I liked your perspective on the word “poor”, it definitely can have other meanings, and you expanded my horizon. Thank you for taking time to answer my questions.
