Obon

8-12 Obon

Today begins the Festival of Obon, a Buddhist recognition of ancestry, honoring family members gone before.

We at Your Inner Rhino are keenly aware of our own heritage, and think it is a good thing to set aside time to be grateful.

We are reposting a picture from October 22, 2014, just to remind you of how many Rhino family members there are, millions and millions and millions of years worth. No member of the family makes, or has made, a lesser contribution than another. Each of Us is a novel version of a long chain of predecessors.

Rhinos are lucky indeed. And grateful.
