Whew, it has been a while.
I went home to KS, then I forgot I had a blog (that always seems to happen in Jan), and then it snowed and snowed and snowed.
In fact, today am experiencing quite a relaxing snow day, and seeing that the rest of the country seems to be doing just the same thing, I thought I would let you in on a little Boston YAV secret. We watch a lot of documentaries.
What better thing to do on a Snow Day than watch some neat documentaries?
So I thought I would recommend a few to you.
Gather round your viewing device with a cup ‘o cocoa and a giant blanket, watch adorable children sing Let It Go, then view some informative docs in your free time.
If you want to feel inspired.
A Place at the Table– a nice introduction to hunger in America with Jeff Bridges and the Civil Wars.
Girl Rising-Girls’ education and why it will fix the world
No Impact Man– Oldie but a goodie, “Who lives without electricity? That’s dumb.”
King Corn-you are made of corn. No really
Truck Farm– (by the same folks of King Corn) urban gardening and singing.
Dive!-Food waste meets dumpster diving.
