Have you been watching the miniseries Frozen Planet on Discovery Channel? Wow. Beautiful cinematography and some amazing scenes. I’m haunted by the one where killer whales rock an ice floe specifically with the intent to knock seals off into the water so they can hunt them.

NPR has a great series called Winter Songs. The premise is listeners pick a  song that reminds of them of winter, then share the story of why. My favorite story goes with Brandi Carlile’s song Dying Day and is about a woman who is waiting to be able to pick up her new, adopted son to take him home.

Lastly, the New York Times Lens blog has an odd little slideshow, called In Moscow, Little Girl Soldiers, that documents young girls training in a prestigious Russian military academy. There are twelve year olds in enormous, poufy bows wearing gas masks and breaking down assault rifles.

Happy Weekend!

Cheers, Amy
