Baby elephant rescue!

I love elephants.

Elephants are magnificent, intelligent, amazing animals.

For a very long time I have thought I would love to have my own elephant, but alas! the darling creature would eat us into poverty, I’m afraid.

Yesterday I came across this YouTube video that I know will help you see more of how wonderful and intelligent they really are.  Enjoy.

After watching this I got thinking about the parallel of family and fellowships and writing. If we are fortunate, we can find ourselves surrounded by those who care about us, who love us and watch out for us, encouraging us when we need it. And if we are very fortunate, some of those will be of “like-mind”, enjoying and participating in the same things that interest us.

That, for me now, is writing. If you are a writer and have friends and acquaintances who also are writers, who understand your highs and lows in the process, who are willing to stand by you when you get mired in life stuff or writing woes of anxiety or the agony of writer’s block, then you are truly blessed. If you have someone who is stalwart in seeing you get out of that hard place, then you .. my friend .. have a rich and beautiful gift. Appreciate it.

What does this video speak to you? Does it parallel anything in your life?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. I hardly could bear the watch the video – the first time, I scooted to the end just to be sure it worked out ok. Then I watched it a second time. 😉

    Elephants are amazing creatures, for sure. They’re so smart, and devoted to one another. It’s a marvel to see – thanks for finding and sharing this!

    • Oh Linda, I understand! I found it really hard to watch too, but since it was called ‘rescue’ I watched it
      – sometimes holding my breath – hoping that it ended up okay.

      I learned something about elephants that I hadn’t known before – they are devoted to one another. It’s an amazing thing.

      Thanks for your comment. 🙂
