This new Netflix documentary was recommended to me by three completely separate sources last week. Now I see why! It is beautiful, educational, heart-warming, and awe-inspiring. It is about a man who makes friends with an octopus in the kelp forest off the shore of South Africa, and how it transforms his perspective. Also, the photography at times is mind-blowing. I give it five stars.
I especially liked what he said about the rewards of returning to the same place in nature everyday, and how that makes you part of it. As much as I love discovering new vistas, this year I too have been learning the rewards of returning over and over again to the same location, and intimately really knowing a patch of earth.
