In Memoriam Elsa

In memoriam Elsa

My dearest precious, beautiful, funny, alive, playful, cheeky, incredible Elsa.
Only just now I heard the shocking news that you passed away at Parque Ambue Ari, Cuminidad Inti Wara Yassi in the jungle of Bolivia.

I deeply cry from the bottom of my heart for all the mourning I feel inside at this news.

Thank you so much for the month that I was allowed to spend with you, to learn to be with you, to face my fears, to face my love for you, to play with you, to hear you purr, to stroke your back, to feel your tongue scrape my hand…
How difficult then it already was to say goodbye to you.

Dearest Elsa
May your spirit live forever
In ultimate freedom and light
Thank you for all
That you gave to so many
So we may remember
The beauty of all wildlife species
And how important it is
To preserve their habitat
So they can roam free and wild
I will remember you always
And I will meet you again
Beyond time and space
I love you – I love you – I love you.

Elsa en Mirjam
