Brooklyn, and all of New York City, is blooming early this year. Just in time for my 100th (one-hundredth!!!) 1-minute video*.
The cherry blossoms I already filmed two weeks ago; the tulips are the latest bloomers and are closing out the video to kick off the full spring flower season. A personal highlight are always the bright yellow forsythia bushes. My mom says they were just in bloom when I was born.
This season is usually a very special time to me; when the ground and trees are still brown and grey without grass or leaves - but the early bloomers are reminding us of hope, rebirth and a new beginning.
Again this year we can say: it wasn't depression, it was just the season.
For me there has been much sadness in the last 10 days. So I'm looking forward to happier days and moments in the sun and hold dear the good times.
I would like to give you this bouquet of flowers and wish you all a perfect day or even just a perfect moment - with blue skies, sunshine and flowers. Enjoy what you have while you do.
Last but not least: thank you all of for watching 100 episodes or just one. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be making these videos.
The song in the video is called "OK" and was written and performed by The Mirrors - a great duo (Matt and Jason) that's part of Goonygoogoo Productions.
Die letzte Aufnahme im Video ist natuerlich fuer Dich, Papi.
* If you're really counting and you're a stickler and all that, this is actually the 101st 1-minute video because during Week 36 I made two different videos: Prague and New Year's Eve in Berlin.
