Tokens of Conception

During our first meeting with the doctors, Geoff and I were presented with a couple of gifts we would like to recognize and share with you. (How great are these doctors?) The first is a beautiful, silver jewelry box decorated in local Indian symbols that will forever conjure our trip east. The second is our favorite and will be our mascot during this trip and throughout the process. It is a wood-carved elephant with a latticework torso in which one can see a second, baby elephant. The elephant-headed Hindu god Ganesha is, among other things, the Lord of Beginnings and thus often called upon when starting a new adventure. Our new elephant conjures thoughts of Ganesha and will be our source of good luck! Thank you, SI!
