In the absence of human interference
An innocent little comment from yesterday - "God never wanted us to mow the yard" (thank you Mark) reminded me of a documentary I saw a while back, which I back then thought worth mentioning here. So upon remembering it, here it is...
This clip above is from a documentary called Chernobyl: Life in the dead zone. It's an eerie portrayal of animals resilience and amazing ability for survival - and most eerie of all; what life on this planet looks like in the absence of human interference (and what a sad dichotomy it is)... it looks like a garden of eden!
I happened upon this documentary quite by chance but I promise it is very worthwhile watching. It's about how animals have survived (even living with radiation) and adapted to life after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. It's nature taking over where there were once humans. Just so beautiful, peaceful and still.
It's chilling in the light of the current situation in Japan but also strangely enchanting and not just a little bit thought provoking.
You can watch the full documentary for free several places online - simply Google the title and lots of results will appear.
P.S. There's a kitty story in it that will capture your heart!
