So, I’m very late to the party here (this was apparently posted back in 2011), but I just saw this lovely little video of Sir David Attenborough reading “What a Wonderful World,” featuring some stunning scenes from the BBC’s “Frozen Planet.” I hope it sets what may be a tough Monday morning for you off on the right note!
