B words

Every Tuesday, step by step, since 2011, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had letter “A”, so this week we’ll make with “B” – I’m sure you’ll also find a story or a music title tagged with “B”! Books, balls, basketball, baths, boats, birds, ballet, balloons, beards, balance, busoms, bycicles or boxers? Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “B”!!! Myself I’ll focus on BASKETBALL:

  2. Hi there Frizz, basketball is my husband’s favourite sport, he plays around 2 hours every day, quite religiously. 🙂 Love this photo that you shared.

    Here is my B photo: Batam, Indonesia! 🙂

    • thanks again for your interesting, thought provoking quotations, Myra:
      “Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?” ― John Lennon (P.S.: the here and now became a nightmare for John Lennon and all, who thought he is a great necessary cultural idol of changing things, making public and political life better)
      “You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” ― Mahatma Gandhi (P.S.: I hope the escalation of terrorism supported by wrong religious influences will not become more than only a few drops – also the respect-less behavior of male individuals vs. women in India, the land of Gandhi; sometimes his ideology of patience seems not strong enough as a strategy)

  4. There is so much to love about the All-Star women’s basket ball photo, Frizz. The gloriously coloured clothes for one. The concentration on the players’ faces. That they are playing in long skirts. My post ‘Basket Case’ has some more colourful pix – though a dark story, too, behind the Nubian mats that decorate my kitchen: http://wp.me/pKVAM-Oa


    • hi Tish, that are long roots: “Kerma culture evolved out of the Neolithic around 2400 BC. The Kushite rulers of Kerma profited from the trading such luxury goods as gold, ivory, ebony, incense, and even live animals to the Egyptian Pharaohs…” Sorry to read, that Germany also here caused much pain…


      • Ah, but Frizz, even the British army combatants thought Von Lettow-Vorbeck was an absolute hero. They admired his tenacity and courage and strategy, and the way he had so well trained his African troops, and put all his faith in their abilities. That was quite rare.


  5. Not something you see everyday 🙂

    • hi Debbie,
      “The gods did all they could to please it until even they lost patience and turned it upside down, burying its head in the ground, so that it could never complain again!” A very amusing story for me, because I remember all those Gods, who had the same feeling vs. me when I was caught in my philosophical debates…

  13. Ooppss … missed the letter A … will have to add that one too.
    I like your selection for the Letter B – I had no idea they played basketball there. The costumes are very colorful.

  16. Like this concept of using an alphabet to string together words and then a story.

    So when do we see the next alphabet linked post coming in?
