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

frizz-comment:
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 …”

  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.
