This is Not the Elephant’s Child
Maybe an uncle. A very large uncle.
Thought you would enjoy some photos of our recent adventures here in South Africa. These are from The Elephant Sanctuary in Hartbeespoort Dam, South Africa.
Driving to the elephant sanctuary, I was naturally thinking of The Elephant’s Child by Kipling. The sanctuary didn’t have any baby elephants while we were there. I’m really hoping to see one soon in the spring. Do you ever think about your favorite works of fiction when you see wildlife? When I saw this big bull elephant we were feeding, I was thinking of the messages left for the park ranger in Kobie Kruger’s book, All Things Wild and Wonderful, like a bull elephant in Kruger causing all kinds of problems ramming cars and getting into farmers’ fields.
I love the way life informs art informs life informs…a blog? Yeah, I guess we’ll call that art, too.
Happy Over the Hump Day, readers!
