  This is true. I read this today when reviewing Dante’s perspective on desire and thought it a lovely illustration of the importance and worthiness of living true to our values.

Saving a 4 tonne animal

I had the opportunity to visit the Elephant Nature Park not too far outside Chiang Mai the other day and thought I’d share a little about these beloved animals many of us may not know much about; also you’ll realise something important if you are ever thinking of riding one.
