a love of creatures: the elephant

One of my favourite animals, as you may have guessed, is the elephant. When I see an elephant I want to melt. I think they are the most amazing mixture of strength and beauty, but there is also a definite sadness about them too. I mean, let’s face it… in many ways, elephants have had a bit of a rough trot over the years! However, I hope that they are more protected now than they have been for a long time.

Do you ever feel like you have an affinity with certain animals? I mean, I hardly ever see an elephant in real life, apart from the occasional proverbial elephant in the room! Yet somehow, I feel like me and elephants make a great team. Frankly, it’s a little strange!  Still, I don’t spend too many hours wondering why it is that I love them so much. Some people believe in animal totems; in essence it seems to be the idea of animal spirits that travel with you through life, guiding you. A while ago I may have found this difficult to believe, but these days I am totally get on board with it.

I certainly cannot deny that I am indeed in love with quite a few creatures. I plan to share them all in good time, and, if there are any animals that inspire you for a particular reason, I would love to know.

  1. Hi elephantunicorn girl. Go you with the singing and the getting paid for it! As a fellow artist I know how awesome it is to actually get paid for doing the stuff you love. Especially because it so randomly occurs! People love to get artists to do things for free and we just want to do it for the love of the creative. But it’s great when there’s actualy money!
    I think singing is a divine talent and I think I’d give up the ones I have if I could just sing a song. In regard to animals….I find that birds feature in my work a lot. They take on different meanings and come in many forms. The seem to be a perfect way for me to communicate lots of themes in my work, depending on the context etc.

    love the blog. xx
