Even when Fortune seems to bestow a giftee, We Rhinos find that Wishing is insufficient for delivering the goods.
What a surprise Wishing Bonanza does encourage Us to do is to assess just what it is We want. That exercise can be revealing and astonishing.
All said and done, the most dependable way of getting what a Rhino wants is through Effort.
It astounds Us Rhinos that Nature almost invariably provides a lot of food for Us. A few times a year We may need to go somewhere else to browse, but that’s about it.
When We go to make a meal, which is just about all the time, We do not lack for Ingredients.
It’s magnificent when We consider how many mouths there are to feed, all Critters considered. In the Wild.
Some Rhinos just whack our way into the Holidays, while others muse over their Holiday Efforts for weeks.
Does one Approach seem better than another? Perhaps, and perhaps Not; We might be tempted to say that it depends on the Results.
But Rhinos feel strongly that the Results can only be assessed in relation to the goals of the particular Artist. Right? The Artist alone defines the Art.
Every Rhino wonders why one Critter seems like a good Pal, while another doesn’t.
These Attractions, however pleasant and enduring, don’t really yield up their secrets. We Rhinos just chalk them up as a Gift.
And We enjoy the kindred spirit of Friendship We share.
If any of you Philosophers had planned to come to ‘Your inner Rhino.com’ for an explanation of Gottlob Frege’s Puzzle, you will be disappointed.
We Rhinos have tried looking into it, the puzzle that is, but We got nowhere.
Rhinos know a lot, but We stop short of Knowing Everything.
In 1903 Mr. Victor Herbert’s operetta, ‘Babes in Toyland’, opened in New York. It has had many successful versions over the years, both on stage and in film.
It combines elements of opera, melodrama, and pageantry for the entertainment of children. The enterprise was modeled on the previous year’s big hit, ‘The Wizard of Oz’.
Rhinos enjoy light theatricals, now and then. As in, occasionally.
Alexander Borodin (b. November 12 (!), 1833) was a remarkable Russian composer. His single opera, Prince Igor, features a ballet called the Polovtsian Dances. It celebrates a nomadic people who lived near the Black Sea in the 11th century.
Rhinos always assumed these folk were pretty exciting, though We were no longer living in that neighborhood when they were in residence. Hearsay.
Music makes Us Rhinos wiggle.
