Twenty-five years ago…

…living in lovely Port Townsend, Washington, I was visited by an epiphany—the heart of the elephants—after reading an article about the plight of the Asian elephant. Within six months, I was in Northern Thailand making a film about elephants, especially a tall and lovely creature named Panom, at Thom’s Elephant Camp in Pai. She became the heart of the film PANOM, Cousin to the Clouds. After completing it, I wrote a short Buddhist parable PANOM, and the Stone of Light, a story about the generosity of Mother Earth. Panom symbolizes this gift and our critical relationship with the planet. ELEPHANT HEART is the vehicle—a chariot of hope—to express gratitude and joy through creative expressions. Galen Garwood

The Journey Continues…

NOSTOS

Elephant Heart’s first blossoming will be NOSTOS, a collaborative book of creative expressions by visual artists and poets, a coming together of words and images to help increase and benefit environmental awareness, published by Marrowstone Press in 2024-25.
