Take us back to a more simpler time, a time where we could be ourselves, a time where potential shone from us, a time before we failed to live up to all the expectations.
I just recently finished working on my debut album… It is currently in mixing, the biggest fear any parent (artist) has, is sending their child out into the world… You never know how they will be received or if they are even ready for all the heart break that lies ahead.
These two Aryan sisters in a small village called Dahno in India live such a humble life and seem to have everything the need, but most importantly they seemed to be absolutely happy.

Nairobi being the only capital city that has a National park within its borders means that you come from the concrete jungle to the actual jungle in less than an hour. The beauty of the Nairobi National Park is that it has various sections; you can either visit the animal orphanage which as the name suggests houses orphaned animals. At the orphanage, you pretty see any kind of animal without much fuss.
There is also the Safari walk, an activity that gives you the opportunity to see Kenya’s wildlife at close quarters, rather than from the back of a safari jeep or car window. For the adventurous lion chasing kind of traveler, you can take a game drive within the park.

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.
when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”
approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.
cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts
