To be truthful, I only know the broad generalities: elephants are matriarchial, have funerals, can be very violent, have a pretty rough lot in todays world.
To me, elephants are solid, dependable, surprising, caring, and apparently wise (why else would they have some many wrinkles!).
What is my elephant? People tell me listening, caring, getting past the fluff to the bones of the matter.
There is violence – drowning, smothering, disappearing.
I have much to learn about my elephant.
