I just love the elephants. Did you know that they have memories that extend beyond generations? That's where the saying "An elephant never forgets came from." Also, did you know they tell stories to each other? Barbara Gowdy wrote about it in her book The White Bone. Did you know that one of the cornerstones of human evolution was the development of narrative? It's true. We can tell each other stories and that's what makes us connected and human and part of something bigger then just survival. So really... elephant, human... we've all got a story.
And if you didn't already love or appreciate elephants you need to watch this video. Amazing. I love it when animals are reunited.
