How do you eat an elephant?

Perhaps as a child you heard this riddle: how do you eat an elephant?

One mouthful at a time.

This contemplation is on my mind this morning. One day at a time... one step at a time... one moment if necessary.

In my quest to write and illustrate this blog entry, I found this lovely elephant image and the following prayer, which I most sincerely now say:

May Lord Ganesha,the leader of Shiva’s retinue,whose very thought ensures success,who carries on his shoulders the head of a beautiful elephant,who is a repository of wisdom and an abode of blessed qualities, shower us his grace.
