Elephant


I now have an apartment full of elephant stuff because people keep giving me elephants. Because I love them. Once, someone asked me why I like elephants. "It's not like they're majestic or anything," they said. But that's exactly the word I use to describe them. When I see elephants in person or in beautiful photography or as statues or paintings or whatever, I almost always think they're beautiful. They're so majestic, so evocative of the past and of a sort of sad mystique. I love learning about them because so many things about how they live and what their bodies can do is so amazing as to sometimes be beautiful in their implications.
