Fascinating and breathtakingly cinematic short film about the nutrient cycle in Alaska, including the Jekyll-and-Hyde life and afterlife of wild salmon, by filmmaker Paul Klaver – the best thing since Radiolab’s poetic piece on the afterlife of whales.
Pair with Jon Mooallem’s moving meditation on wildlife.

Strange now to think of you, gone without corsets & eyes, while I walk on the sunny pavement of Greenwich Village / downtown Manhattan, clear winter noon, and I’ve been up all night, talking, talking, reading the Kaddish aloud, listening to Ray Charles blues shout blind on the phonograph / the rhythm the rhythm—and your memory in my head three years after
from Kaddish, by Allen Ginsberg in memory of his mother
