Clouds – Wolken – In A Berlin Minute (Week 131) [HD] from Luci Westphal on Vimeo.
Clouds moving across the sky. A rather unusual and simple video for this series. It is a special video I made in memory of Franc Tausch (aka FilmKritikTV on YouTube). He was a special friend to “In A Berlin Minute” and a wonderful friend, mentor, inspiration and brother-in-spirit to me.
He passed away two months ago. But for various reasons we weren’t allowed to make it public until his birthday last week, Thursday October 25th. That day I posted “Charlottenburg Palace (Inside)”, which wasn’t the right video to dedicate to him. So this week I went out to the Insel der Jugend (Island of Youth) and filmed these clouds. If you look closely you can see two birds fly across the sky.
Franc was a very spiritual man who taught me a lot and who was loved and admired by many. He was one to appreciate nature, harmony and a deeper meaning in life. When my beloved cats died he talked me through the grief and reminded me how all spirits are important and equal and that it is not up to us to keep those we love alive, but we have to let them go. Their spirits will remain with us.
With this in mind, I know Franc’s spirit will continue to be with me and everyone. But I really did want to have more time with him in this realm. There was still so much I wanted to do with him, talk to him about and learn from him.
Appreciate those that are with you. And always, try to be brave and kind. Life is short.
