The Staff of Your Inner Rhino is back, transformed by a bit of leisure. What happened to the T-shirt We cannot say.
We have kept the balloon as a souvenir (see: ‘Down Time’ below), at least in spirit.
Much easier than trying to find it later and repair it, right?
Your Inner Rhino‘s staff will be taking a deserved break for a few days, but We will return to our posts shortly.
Please chat among yourselves until then.
Today is the birthday of Mr. Peter Roget, 1779. He is best known for his Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (1852). It seems fitting that this is also National Thesaurus Day. Words and more words, all displaying the rich and varied nuances of language.
Rhinos have a system that is similar for making distinctions of tone and emphasis, but it defies translation.
That being the case, We will simply press on.
When things seem to be getting out of control at a Particular Decibel, Rhinos make it a rule to put all the Distance possible between them and the Point of Irritation.
With all the Haste at our command, which happily is pretty snappy, whatever you might have supposed.
Please do not suppose that We Rhinos are not trying to make sense of what goes on around Us. We do. Still, We have not managed to arrive at any startling conclusions.
What Rhinos do know is: Nature offers no Guarantees, long term or short.
Just because a plant smells benign does not mean it is compatible with the Rhino Diet. That is why our first nibble is delicate, in case there has been an error in the plant selection.
In the Wild, you have to pay attention.
Moliere (b.1622) is possibly the greatest French playwright ever. His works have been produced around the world, in his own day and in ours.
Rhinos are all for him, despite the fact that the culture he wrote about is long gone. Human nature seems not to have changed much, so his work is still interesting.
A brief catalogue would feature Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Learned Ladies, The Imaginary Invalid, and The Miser.
Toutes nos felicitations. (If you add some accents to that, it’s French.)
