I’m still standing.

African elephants are in decline; poachers ruthless as ever. But when you watch these beautiful giants one recognises a certain peace about them, as though they refuse to entertain the idea of impending death. They stand, so firmly planted on the ground. I took this picture and staring at it now it had me thinking. Maybe it’s not about the fight you put up, maybe it’s about the recognition you award yourself when you stop long enough to realize you’re still standing. #staystanding
