"I meant what I said and I said what I meant
An elephant's faithful, one hundred percent."
~Dr. Seuss

I read the book Water for Elephants on the plane to Denver. It was a good read. A little more, er, sensual, at some parts than I expected, but there is nothing that compares to the indulgence of getting lost in a good piece of fiction. This book was exceptionally interesting because details were based on documented historical events of the traveling circus in the 1930's. Along those lines, I have a little collection of elephant images I found endearing. I especially like the photo below. It's frightening and mesmerizing at the same time.
