I am thinking of a word and it starts with a B.

Every time I say this, my mind immediately goes to BELIEVE, and from there to Don’t Stop Believin’, and then I’m humming in my head all day….

Just a small town girl / Livin’ in a loooooooooooooonely world

There is a Voyage and it begins with a B.

Hahaha, but since this is a Journey song, the voyage is actually a journey. Even though I do not love the word journey, I do in this context. As a Michigan girl.

Anyway, it is almost Rally (Rally!), my favorite thing in the entire world. And while it is — good heaven — the 27th time I am doing this, as the second Rally in the Alphabet Carousel it is the Rally of B.

And we are getting ready to enter.

Anything can be a voyage. Just like how anything can be a door or a home or a project.

And each voyage or adventure gets to have qualities that define it, inform it, accompany it, infuse it with goodness.

So today I am playing with qualities and superpowers and magic words that begin with a B.

Qualities of the [Voyage that begins with a B] that begin with a B.

Well, some of them. Qualities and magic words.

  • Beauty
  • Boldness
  • Boisterousness
  • Bountiful
  • Beach Day!
  • Bond… Bond. Havi Bell Bond.
  • Benediction
  • Beckoning
  • Beacon
  • Bending
  • Bonding
  • Balance
  • Bells
  • Benefactor, Secret
  • Bliss
  • Bow and Bow
  • Beatific
  • Belonging
  • Basking
  • Blossoming
  • Blooming
  • Breathing
  • Blessedness (something about this word makes me kind of itchy but the thing that it means is so beautiful)
  • Bundles and batches
  • Betterment
  • Being
  • Bearings (and also bears, who have paws)
  • Buffers!
  • Bubbles!
  • Bounteousness
  • Bigheartedness
  • Bring into
  • Bedecked
  • Birth
  • Bravery
  • Bouncing
  • Beaming
  • Boundaries (my favorite B-word, of course)

Not to mention the wonderful superpower of Building and Believing. And the superpower of Bells and Bridges.

And other fun B things. Like butterscotch, blocks, bath time, becalmed. Bemusement and bafflement. And balloons. Biscuits! Buttmonsters! And things that are bonafide.

Also my travel agent is an AGENT and her name is Bee. Do you see how perfect this is? It is perfect.

OHMYGOD. I nearly forgot. B is also for Ballroom. I have a Ballroom. I have a Ballroom and it is Breathtaking.

Rallying around the B.

This week is Rally (Rally!), which is my favorite thing in the world.

It is going to be BEAUTIFUL.

I will tell you later (I keep promising this and eventually it will be the exact right moment and it will happen) about some of the specific things that are making these new Rallies extra-beautiful, but for now I am going to bounce around and delight in things that start with B.

I am going to walk under the beams and bells. As Bond Girl. As Havi Bell. As Havi Brooks, since my name is another thing that starts-with-a-B.

Not just that: I am going to BEAM. BEAMING is going to be the secret mission of this Rally. Beaming and Boundaries. Possibly beaming-boundaries. It will be the Blessing. It will be the Basics. I will be Basking in it.

Along with a Badonkadonk of Buttmonsters.

It is just the beginning. Of the week of B, and so many other things.

Play with me. How the commenting blanket fort works!

We can name things that begin with B.

We can enjoy these qualities and magic-words, or add more (addition, another wonderful word that begins with B!) of our own. Bellissima!

If you want to whisper-whoosh any qualities, words or sound effects that appeal to you, go for it. Boom!

If you want to share in any of qualities, you can. They work like the salves in the Friday Chicken: just take some, there is always more.

If you want to throw some superpowers into the pot for Rally, that is welcome.

Waving from the Playground! Whispering loving spells that begin with B and B and B, for myself, and for anyone who wants…
