Hello my name is Ben. I picked up the name "MagicBall" because I kept a Magic 8 Ball at my desk at work and my friends always came to me for answers to difficult situations. I would either provide the answer, or pickup the Magic 8 Ball for an answer.  Pretty soon they started saying "Let's go ask the Magic 8 Ball." the name stuck.

Artistic wise, I enjoy writing as a creative and expressive outlet for me. I'm not the best verbal communicator when it comes to emotion (ask my wife!) and for some strange reason God Blessed me with a writing ability as a means to express. As if the fact that God wanted men and women to co-exist in Marriage isn't proof enough He has a sense of humor?

Anyway I am a creative addict. I love music and writing. I have even published 4 books to date. 2 Poetry Books (Reflections & Reflections - Evolution), and 2 Relationship Humor Books (The MANual & TheMANual - Surviving Pregnancy). They are on Amazon if you want to check them out.

I am a Christian Man (Follower of Christ. NOT a Religous Freak!) and I am married with 2 Boys and 1 Girl. My family and I live in Beaverton, Oregon

I hope you enjoy my HUBs. Thanks for stopping by.
