Triple-Jointed

Rhinos live mostly alone, each attending to matters as they come. We live with Mom for a couple of years, and then We move along. She shapes our childhood, but the emphasis is on developing successful solo survival strategies. We live in the Wild, right?

One skill We learn early on is the Self-Cuddle. We aren’t built for embracing ourselves physically, so We have to achieve our reassurance system mentally. When the going is rough, We give ourselves a Wee Squeeze, and recall just how capable and important We are. Naturally.

Thus mentally tuned up, We stride ahead.
