(Video link here.) As we watch this tiny video of an elephant Faa Mai being soothed to sleep by her caretaker Lek, we find ourselves feeling calmed and comforted. It is a 2-minute visual tonic for the blues and anxiety, and an example of deep kindness in action.

You can see more about Faa Mai at the website of the Elephant Nature Park, an elephant rescue center in Northern Thailand founded by Lek.
