Elephantine Phantasy

[It was a beautiful blue sky above, but windy below, when our family from Boston and New Jersey sought out the African Safari in Western Ontario. Apart from witnessing many species of exotic birds and animals in the wild, we indulged in sighting the most magnificent of them, elephants, not quite close and personal, but near enough to appreciate their all-abiding presence among lesser members of the animal kingdom.]

“Safari” Lake – wherein Herds of Elephants enjoy frolicking

What follows is a video I took on my MiniPad during a day trip from Toronto, where we were staying for a well-earned summer holiday with family members and meeting up with old friends from our Calcutta days in their Mississauga home of many years.

On our return to Toronto and before catching our flight home to the USA, we took in the fascinating Aquarium, where I snapped these colorful pictures of a variety of aquaflora, seemingly from a different planet:

Also, I couldn’t resist taking a brief video of the colorful exotic fish flitting about in a huge brightly lit tank that made for easy viewing of the vivid display:

Dear Readers,
You number over 70,000 in just over 2 1/2 years ago back in February 2015, when I first began to put “some of my thoughts, written down” and posted them in the blogosphere. Since that time, many of you have urged me to seek support of my site and my writings by way of donations.

 My blog is about my life. It’s about what I’ve learned through the span of my life. It’s about things I love, and things I know and things I have experienced. I am humbled that so many of you want to join with me in my reflections. If you like what you find here, if it inspires or informs or amuses you, then I am content.

It would mean a lot to me, if you would please consider making a donation of US $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, or whatever amount you deem fit to sustain my work.
And thank you for being a regular reader of the Azim Mayadas Blog!
