    as a child I wanted to be a zoo keeper

    but later I just wanted to be with elephants. Now I just wish for them to have their own space but we seem to be taking it all.

    Mea Culpa As A Child

    I was about 4 or 5 when I fell for her. She was tall and had the longest eyelashes I'd ever seen...I was amazed at her gentleness as I climbed upon her back so high; she was silent and still. I remember what her hair felt like as I pet her and spoke highly secrets to my new...

    Elephants mean luck when the trunk is up and I have always loved everything about them from their colour to the way they carry themselves with strength and control with a carefree attitude.
