Mood Swings

Wikipedia says mood swings are an extreme or rapid change in mood.

Sometimes you’re up…

and sometimes you’re down.

Hold your head up, Brinke G., these pics lift our spirits!



  1. More! I want more!

    This makes me so happy. Where was this taken? I want to go to where ever it is that baby elephants frolic in the surf!

  3. a tiny little part of me wants his trunk to accordion in and out like in the cartoons…

  4. Geez, warning about showing a nudist beach next time!

    My guess is India? You always see those pic’s of people on the back of swimming elephants in the ocean.

  15. Not doubting you for a minute, but National Geo loves shots of grey elephants swimming in azure blue oceans to jewel-like islands so that popped into my head.
