This piece is named for the helpful elephant whose simple suggestion rescued me from writer’s block. (Yes, really. And no, I hadn't been drinking at the time!) My studio decor includes several stuffed animals; these admittedly have no acoustic function, but they make me happy. There are two elephants, a humpback whale, an alligator, a Lapras, and a dragon. The blue elephant, Celine, was the one who helped me over come writer's block by suggesting that I start out simply: by "playing" her, as I've sometimes done with paintings and jewelry. Celine is a greyish blue with a softly ridged texture. So, I started with a low, blue-grey, gently ridged E, and the song quickly grew from there. I'm not sure that the elephant can take credit for the whole thing -- once I got properly started, the music flooded out as if a dam had broken -- but she certainly started it!
