Ol Ari Nyiro,

“There is mystery behind that masked gray visage, an ancient life force, delicate and mighty, awesome and enchanted, commanding the silence ordinarily reserved for mountain peaks, great fires, and the sea.”
—Peter Matthiessen, The Tree Where Man Was Born
Welcome the Elephants back with the Rains
June / July have always been Elephant migratory seasons:
But, in this year of turmoil, more than in any other, I consider my large grey friends with reverence:
With the touching resilience of Elephants – sounds in the night, silent soft steps – in GREAT NUMBERS the vast shadows are back with the rains, to walk the paths of Ol Ari Nyiro once more, – the memory of which they have inherited from past generations of ancestors:
the End of the area Migration routes,
where they were born
where they came back to breed and -at the end of their long life- they will return to die, surrounded by the support of their clan and family.
I feel such a great affinity !
In Praise of the Elephants!
