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.
