Be the Elephant
This image and saying are from TLC - I just had to have this one! A few of you may have seen some of the photos (see previous posts) from our recent trip to South Africa. We had so many animal views - but the most memorable is an encounter with an elephant. We were driving in Kruger National Park when we saw a large elephant near the road, just ahead of us. We stopped, to see what he would decide to do. We had a vehicle behind us - we did back up as much as possible. The elephant paced a bit - generally staying on the road just ahead of us (maybe as close as 10-15 feet.) . At one point he flared his ears -not a goodTL sign. When he appeared to be coming even closer, our experienced guide/driver opened his window - banged on the door and shouted. In a short time, the elephant decided to saunter off, and we could all breathe again! Had he decided to challenge us even more, we were quite sure he could have done serious damage to our van. That does not happen often, but is not unheard of! (I hope some of you will take a look at the photos.)
I like the verse - it encourages adventure but also gives good advice for a well grounded life.
I added some glitter to the Cuttlebug BG, and used Belle Blvd. washi tape.
