This Elephant named Toby was drawn long ago. He was a circus elephant all his life, since he was a pup. But last week, I cut him out with a pair of scissors...out of the piece of paper where he lived, and the circus and his comfortable zone.
Today I pasted Toby into the African savannah. I could see, in his eye, the look of fear and surprise at first, and then it turned to wonder, as he saw his first mountains, and felt the pads of his elephant foot touch moist grasses.
Toby is probably worried about making new friends. I am hoping one of those cleaner birds will land on his back soon and keep him company.
