So, an elephant never forgets? He mourns his dead, caresses their bones, and remembers where they are buried. He can learn to haul heavy loads and do circus tricks. But take a look at this "Self Portrait." It almost made me cry.
Self-aware? Deliberate? I think so. What do you think? I think we have no clue...as to what has gone on, what is going on, what will go on. We people are a self-centered bunch of f**kers at best, believing that our place at the top of the food chain makes us the most beloved of God. God is the God of elephants and cats and jellyfish and rosebushes and bees as well as of mankind. We are all beloved. All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful...you finish it now...while I go get a tissue.
