Since this is my first time writing a blog, I’m going to start simple. If you know me, I’m not one to easily decide on a favorite thing. But if you know me, there is one that does exist. Favorite animal: Elephant. I’m not really sure why, but it undoubtedly is the creature with the trunk that fits the bill. Maybe because its so strange looking. The combination of its size and distinct features (trunk, ears, tusks, tiny mouth…) make it a kind of tribute to the animals of the past. But its also such a gentle animal. Maybe the fact that the Elephant is a familial oriented animal, that travels in packs and surrounds its young in a circle, when defending against predators. I could go on about why I possibly love the elephant, but I think the fact that I just know it to be my favorite speaks for itself.
I think a favorite should be something that is a gut reaction, not some reasoned conclusion. Favorites should exist because simply you know no other.
