This is the sweet, elderly girl who inspired me to write about the elephant, Kammoon. She was rescued by Elephants World in Thailand and had no teeth, so she had to be fed by hand. It was a beautiful and humbling experience, and one I am so grateful that I experienced. (Check out more about Elephants World rescue HERE.)
excerpt from I'M WITH ANXIOUS by Suzanne Brown
Kammoon’s huge eyes are gentle and kind, framed by long, black eyelashes and surrounded by wrinkles. The light filtering in through the canopy above is just enough to illuminate the brown flecks of light in her irises. Kammoon opens her mouth. I wipe the sticky rice over her tongue and quickly pull out my hand. Kammoon pushes the rice deeper into her mouth with her trunk, gums it a little and then swallows. She looks back at me and I swear she’s grinning. I exhale a long breath and a deep peace settles over me.
