Although Rhinos have a raucous side to our character, We are mostly extraordinarily Quiet. And with good reason.
In the Wild, there is a lot more to Hear, all told. And the Potential Importance of these Hearings cannot be overestimated.
The information We gather can make the difference between a great afternoon and no afternoon.
In the face of any Experience, each Rhino has options for reactions. The meaning of the word Response-Ability. What shall We make of things?
Whatever We choose to think, Rhinos need to recall that our thoughts are under our control. We Choose our focus, and our interpretation.
So obvious, and yet so easy to forget.
When it comes to Rhinos being Rhinos, One thing We never leave out of the recipe is Sass.
Sass has some negative connotations, We admit. A little too much spin on the ball perhaps. A sense of immunity to Social Conventions. A little goes a long way.
Like it or not, We Rhinos got it, and make the most of it. Stand back.
Most Rhinos, when dealing with physical hardships, experience a decreased Merriment Quotient. Grumpiness comes easily, and frequently, oftentimes.
In most instances, Time comes to our aid, if not as quickly as We’d like.
In the Wild it’s that way. Even not in the Wild, it’s that way. We growl.
CATASTROPHISM is today’s topic. For those of you who have forgotten just what that is, it is theory that most of the big geologic events in the Earth’s history are due to cataclysmic incidents, like meteors arriving unexpectedly. Like that. Big Bad Unavoidable News.
Then things on Earth have to adjust in quick time. Whether they like it or not.
A little Resignation seems in order here, since there is next to nothing to be done about it.
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.
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.
