Today is Ms. Amy Vanderbilt’s birthday, born 1908. She had a distinguished career writing and speaking on Etiquette and considerate social interactions.
It should come as no surprise that Rhinos are naturally thoughtful and kind, which are the precepts behind all mannerly behavior.
Courtesy takes a little of the Wild out of the Wild.
Fact: We Rhinos are fascinating. It’s hard for Us to get over ourselves.
But We at YIR thought We might point out that everything We see, or ‘achieve’, or have, is just a flimsy layer perched upon the Enormity of the Earth itself. The Planet’s Stupenditude takes the cake, and We are just specks by comparison, both in body and cosmic impact.
Minerals are the underpinning of the whole Shebang, as we know it.
This is Friday the 13th, which means something bad. Things will not work out. Feel glum. The Glass is not half full, or half empty; it is missing entirely.
Rhinos do not have unlucky days. We are spared that concern because 1) We can’t count, and 2) We have no calendars.
We can look sour, but it takes practice and concentration.
Rhinos have a built-in capacity for Euphoria that defies description. It just comes with the Natural Package. We do not control it, because… Well, why would We want to?
Some days are only a #1 on the Euphoria Scale, others are a #3. These vacillations are more or less meaningless; any way you look at it, We are of Good Cheer and excited by our Prospects. Dazzled by our Good Fortune.
Maybe other Critters have the same potential, but forget to notice it.
Smiling through, Your Inner Rhino.
Mr. Marc Chagall was born today in 1887.
And a good thing, too, say We at Your Inner Rhino.
July 4 is a National Holiday, yet We at YourInnerRhino.com have mixed feelings about how our Nation’s business is being conducted. We want to celebrate our Nation’s strengths and Ideals, but hesitate to pretend that all is Well.
We do not feel Yankee Doodle Dandy.
