As a kid I was a huge fan of elephants. I had elephants everywhere: on my bed sheets, my clothes, as toys, and I even owned a golden necklace with a small elephant pendant and two matching earrings. I can't remember how this obsession had started in the first place but my parents always said it probably was the elephant scene in Disney's Jungle Book.

As with most obsessions, this one gradually diminished while I was growing up. However, elephants are still (or maybe have become again?) animals that somehow always impress me very much. I can sit and watch a picture of elephants for ages and especially looking into their eyes (yes, even in a picture) touches me deeply.

I don't know if it's a coincidence that I find myself now - at such an important point in my life at which I'm trying to find out who I really am - in a house that features elephants as a recurring theme. But somehow it seems to make sense, doesn't it?
