Elephant - Sri Lanka

The Sri Lankan elephant is one of 3 recognised sub-species of Asian Elephant. Since 1986 the Sri Lankan elephant has been listed as endangered. During the 1990′s, many elephants were killed by landmines that were left during the countries armed conflict. Today, the main cause of the decline in elephant numbers is due to an increasing human population, and the resulting expansion of infrastructure into previously un-occupied land. While the ivory trade is not a large industry in Sri Lanka, some trade still occurs. 

Sri Lanka has set up safety zones for elephants, by creating protected areas for elephants to live, and working with local communities to learn to live alongside the elephants.

For the first time, I attended a wedding. I didn’t even know the couple, but I found myself both happy and a little empty. There was obvious love, not only between the bride and groom, but between the many friends who were present to show their joy and support for these two people who chose one another as a life mate, a partner to lean on and lift up, always. 

Seeing this left me feeling a hollow space in my body. A place that would cave in if it was walked over any more. Would I ever be capable of a love like that? Is it possible for someone to look at me that way?  I don’t say this for pity or attention. I think so many people hear someone, especially a woman, talking about her desire for love and they hear desperation or weakness. Love is a necessity, another form of nourishment the human spirit needs to thrive and there is no shame in desiring what your body is hungry for. I’ve never felt like I had to get married and a wedding is not exactly on my bucket list, but a best friend I can love, can count on, can tear down my walls for, and share a life adventure with? That. That is the the shape of the hollow in my chest.
