There won’t be anything particularly insightful or exciting on this weblog. I had a locally popular neighborhood site when I lived in the “bloggiest” borough, but I don’t have the energy to keep that up. And where I live now doesn’t have the same access to building violations, interesting street food, kooky neighbors, and car service antics as my previous neighborhood did. I am learning, though, that there are most of these things going on. It’s just harder to see and hear them without a shared wall and from a car.
That said, I’ve been feeling like there’s so much going on and so many voices blabbing away that I just want to jump onto the bandwagon and dance to Nena’s “99 Luftbalons” along with everyone else.
*Since so many have asked: Mutterschwester is the German translation of my favorite character in Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” – Mother Sister. Although, as some have speculated, you can take it as related to muttering about various subjects if you want.
