The Common Senses

There is much discussion of Seeing, Smelling, Tasting, Touch, and Hearing. They are all useful capabilities, and Rhinos are glad to have them. Like many other Critters.

But Rhinos are also Sense-itive in a range of other ways, sensing the stars, the details of the Mariana Trench, rainfall in Zimbabwe, salamander pregnancies, and another zillion stimulating things. Crammed together, We refer to them as Sensitivity. They are a Natural Bonanza.

Yes. Rhinos are gifted. And Grateful.


Teetering on the Brink



Far be it for any Rhino to begrudge another critter its livelihood, but Mosquitos pose a threat to RhinoSanity. We have a lot of surface and these flying Nightmares strike without warning, leaving Us all Itchy and Afflicted.

The fact that it is Natural, and We Rhinos are not alone in our Suffering probably means something.

But what that is, We cannot say. We get too overwrought to Philosophize.

Star Light, Star Bright

Good wishes are common among Us Rhinos. Sometimes We get preoccupied with picking out a star to wish upon. It’s hard to decide which star should house which Good Wish.

Much of our YIR Holiday was spent on this question, though We think the upshot is, a Good Wish is a Good Wish.

Sometimes though We feel pretty sure We wished upon Fireflies. Our vision is not what it might be, but our hearts are in the Right Place.
