We needed to come down to earth, solid earth preferably, after the gloomy, wet and dark first half of November and watched the first episode of Planet Earth II. It delivered. David Attenborough is the best person ever, seriously. I would sell my bicycle to meet him. If you want to get a glimpse of hardship and endurance and love, watch the penguins. We humans are whining weaklings compared to penguins. And forget the Komodo dragons, all brute muscle and clout, strutting for show without compassion. The penguins break my heart every time.


  1. I have become such a wimp when it comes to nature television. I just can't stand to watch things kill and die, which is so STUPID because it's nature! Humans have become so insulated from it all, probably to our detriment.

  2. I think animals are Gods. They never take more than they need and they tread softly on this earth. If we really paid attention, how different life would be.
    The video was amazingly beautiful, and we owe so much to David Attenborough, I wish he would live forever. Thank you.

  3. I love this - sometimes we fail to understand that not-knowing is an opportunity, not a failure.
