My tat for a night busk. The elephant in the park...I took a nap on a bench here this morning after hash browns, bagels and porridge. A man said he'd checked I was breathing and then came back to see I was ok. What a beautiful guardian. The elephant is a new addition arriving in Edinburgh in February. It's covered in little flowers...I concealed one earlier and a woman called Jess also 46 found it with her kids...I said I put that there to be found nestled in a Nook. Her kids had strong names. We smiled. Children climb, people pose for photos, some stop suddenly, others gamble and run about. It's the most perfect thing. Baba, Dumbo, Ganesh, fearlessness...it's just sitting waiting for your attention and it's a thing of beauty.
It just says...for all the babies. It's something so simple. I cried, slept and met a musician and her little ginger daughter. Take a break. Feel held. Relax. Rest. The elephant knows how to keep you safe.
