I was very moved by the sounds of whales and elephants in this interview. There is a deep connection made when we can hear our animal brothers and sisters. There is something in us that responds to wildness and which in some way connects us to the natural world in a deeply spiritual way, a world from which most of us have been removed. This connection may be critical to our very survival.
I think the elephants in Katie's dream were saying that what they were giving to her was purely a gift of recognition and that the gift was for her and there was no need to do anything else with it. This gift was an honoring from the elephants who could recognize a kindred spirit. The fact that she has shared her stories with us is a gift to us. We can do whatever we want with it. I hope we will use her gift to help protect our natural environment
