BBC America has been playing episodes of SP every week for the last few weeks, narrated by BC. It’s lovely! Great photography, interesting info, and his narration is excellent! I wish he’d do more nature doc narration. His diction is so precise, and the timbre of his voice is so...😍🤤 (technical term, lol). I think it’s also on Netflix US right now. I really like nature docs, except the ones that are just about chasing and killing in slo-mo. I’m too tender hearted to watch those.
They’re showing it on tv again, beginning tonight. I never noticed that “pengwing” is mentioned in the very first episode - as well as in a later episode. It was nice to find something to make me smile!
(Off topic - I found out that my hairdresser died this week. He wasn’t even ill, but died in his sleep. He was two years older than me. He’s the only person who has cut my hair for nearly 35 years. I went to him about 4 times a year, which is more often than I saw some of my family members. I’ve hardly slept since I heard the news. I keep thinking that I might not wake up at all. Then I think that maybe it’s better to die that way rather than go through a lengthy, painful illness. Then I try to stop thinking about different ways to die, or I’ll never be able to fall asleep. I’m also avoiding mirrors during the day, because looking at my hair reminds me that this is the last haircut I’ll ever have from him. And finally, I wonder who will cut my hair from now on. I used to tell him to just do what he wants, but I can’t imagine saying that to a stranger!
So yes, it’s been nice to get away from those thoughts for a while and watch/listen to South Pacific)
One of my brother’s co workers died from a heart attack at the age of 58 while he was biking to work. He was in great shape, just keeled over. It is very shocking when someone passes suddenly like that. It does put some difficult thoughts into your head, doesn’t it? 🙏🏻
