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?
