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.
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.
On any topic, in any situation, there are a gazillion Variables to assess. No matter what Conclusion We arrive at, there is usually a lurking doubt, here and there. The Big What-Ifs?
Rhinos like to be Decisive and Dynamic. But that does not make Us Right.
Where does the line establish itself between Exhilaration and Addiction? Ah, who can say? Rhinos are generally an Enthusiastic Crowd; setting limits is not easy.
The Gavotte is a fine example of such a Mania. It was v. popular some time ago, and has never let its Luster dim. We Rhinos are still refining our Technique; our Style has never been wanting, as you may have suspected.
However We might define our Dedication to it, the Gavotte delivers Satisfaction, every time. Ask anybody.
Rhinos do all that We can to avoid Stressful Situations (which are bad for our Health). Are We universally successful in these efforts? Obviously, not entirely. What critter is?
Whatcha gonna do?
Our Best, that’s what.
Everybody knows that Java is probably the most fertile place on Earth. And what makes it so Fertile is not only the weather and rainfall, but the Volcanic Ash which regularly rains down on the island, enriching the soil.
Some of Us Rhinos have lived on Java for a long time, and nobody much likes Volcanic Fallout. Still, once things settle down, plants go berserk. Salad Galore.
The Rough with the Smooth, a Rhino Fact of Life.
