During easter, I watched Plant Earth several times. I have watched it before, but this easter was intense Planet Earth session, darling.
I lay in my bed with a pillow on my belly, propped up my laptop. I never watch TV, ever! So this was quite an occasion for me.
Every part of the series is absolutely beautiful, although I do get a bit nervous when the Elephant gets eaten by the Lions. I always have to remind myself whenever I watch it, that, this is part of the food chain, so everything is ok. Although this is not normal for Lions to eat Elephant says David Attenborough, who seems to calm my nerves too, with his incredible voice. What a talented man, I could listen to him all day.
I find David Attenborough an absolute genius "only the fat cubs will survive the winter" He makes everything sound so serious, well what he talks about often is very serious anyhow. Samuel Douek and I, a good friend, were actually discussing the other day how we can imagine Attenborough watching us and commentating on what we were doing. A giant Attenborough! I can imagine God speaking just like him.
I'm going to stop myself writing about Planet Earth, before I go on and on. I will just have to wait until next time I find myself with another Planet Earth Session.
