Eating the Elephant

A  L  O  H  A !
“ Elephants don’t know 
anything about 
the world of ants; 
the peaks of mountains 
are oblivious of 
what is happening 
on the plains!” 
                  Mehmet Murat ildan













“They say that 
somewhere in Africa 
the elephants have 
a secret grave 
where they go 
to lie down, 
unburden their wrinkled 
gray bodies, and 
soar away, light spirits 
at the end.” 
                  Robert McCammon





 So HOW do you 
eat the elephant 
in your room?

ONE bite at a time!

I think there must be some truth in what Robert McCammon says.

Love the elephant emoticon!! It must be tough to have a room that is an elephant graveyard. How many times a year do you have to eat elephant?

I love these! Elephants are among my favorite beasts! Smiles. I especially like the quote about how light they are at the end.

Indeed great meaningful quotes.

I read somewhere elephants know when it is time and they travel to that place of rest.

Eating the elephant? I'd rather have it go trample my idiot-ex-brother-in-law!

Great advice to eat the elephant one bite at a time. That's how I do my gardening too. It helps to keep it fun and not a chore. ;)

I hope there is a heaven for elephants!

Quite right to eat the elephant one bite at a time. Only problem is that each bite can be hard to swallow. Humble pie, too.

When I was growing up in Africa the elephants graveyard was a legend that sent a child's imagination soaring!
