Story Challenge: Letter “B”

Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “B”? For example I’ve written about BERLIN and BRUSSELS, BIRDS and BOATS, BALANCE and BABIES, BREAK THROUGHS and BLUE MOODS, BREAKFAST and BLOGGERS, BRIDGES and BANJOS, Pina BAUSCH or my wife BARBARA, BATHROOMS and BEDROOMS, BAHREIN or BURN OUT, BRAZIL and BELGIUM, BICYCLES and BIKERS, BIPOLAR or BLIND, BIN LADEN or SAUL BELLOW, BAKERS and BUTCHERS, BIOGRAPHIES or BLACK MUSIC, BOOKS or BMWs – I’m sure you have a topic to share, tagged with “B”!

tagged “B” – for example: BERLIN

6 Berlin Towers
I’m often in Berlin. At first I was shocked by the landmarks of evil history, starting from this town so many decades: the two world wars and then the spy state of Stasi and narrow minded administrations. But then I noticed, step by step new generations are making their own new business there – with a certain kind of humour, anarchism and creative ideas …
Vlado’s comment: “Berlin has a lot of the ‘free spirit’ of the days of my youth, but doesn’t live in the past – it is home of radically modern art and architecture, science and technology – but with a nice ‘feel’ to it …”

  3. BERLIN! One of the most dynamic cities I visited – I love the entire vibe and spirit of the city. 🙂 My B contribution is Boston –


  4. I wrote a song once called “Bad Examples”

    “My Momma says, I’m no damn good. I’m living life and setting Bad Examples”

    Not the greatest effort for someone who is now a grown up parent and trying not to set “Bad Examples” for my kids.



    • hi Tim,
      short novel author,.
      new generations are obliged to make things different.
      I like your poem:
      “When, sir, did you start to despair?
      It was the day I decided not to care…”


  5. Finally, I got to join again, Here is my ‘B’ entry – a bug story. 🙂

    I love that car. ♥

    • I know you like FORD –
      but the iconic Berlin car
      was named Trabi (Trabant):
      Escape, 1989/Nov/9


      • I’m hardly Ford obsessed.The guy just happens to be the focus of my attention now.
        My taste in cars runs to vintage models on the one hand and top end luxury models on the other.
        The only vintage German car I have actually seen is an Adler that somebody’s grandfather had bought for 19 rupees.
        The only mass market car that I am interested in is the nano,not because it is the last word in cars but because they tried to break the price barrier.Unfortunately in the last couple of years Tata Motors seems more interested in selling extras rather than trying to provide more for less.
        I took a look at the Trabi-looks a lot like the Premier Padmini and other Premier models.


      • I have a photo of this wall art in Berlin! 🙂
