While some people struggle finding a purpose in life after retirement, Paul Barton of England has never been more driven – as he now plays piano for rescued elephants in Thailand.
Years ago, he discovered Elephants World, a sanctuary in Thailand that helps old, injured and disabled elephants who have lived stressful lives.
But instead of pitching in with the feeding or cleaning, Paul asked if he could play music for the animals.
Sure enough. The elephants responded in a positive way.
They stood still, just to listen to the music. Some got very close and draped their trunk over the piano, while others swayed to the rhythm.
Because of the joy of the elephants -- and the fun he was having -- Paul made a big life decision. He and his family now live at Elephants World and Paul has made it his mission to entertain the elephants, who seem to be enjoying themselves as well.
