The distinction between Seeing a star and Hearing a star is pretty fuzzy with Rhinos. What is the difference? The issue is awareness of the Whelmingness of Nature, and We have that covered.
Rhinos play our modest part in the Greater Scheme of Things.
Over the weekend, the ‘Your Inner Rhino’ Staff went There. Had a good time, saw folks, enjoyed ourselves,Then.
But now We are Here and Now, which can never be taken for granted. Rhinos are a tiny feature of a Great Big Picture, doing our Best, as Best We can.
It’s worth thinking about. For Us, Today is the Accomplishment.
Rhinos, like most critters, pass our days Expecting things to be a certain way, to organize themselves consistently. If it’s this way today, it was mostly just like that yesterday, allowing wiggle room for interpretation.
But We Rhinos are keenly aware that this Expectation runs the Hazard of Disappointment. It’s what makes things interesting.
Was that way, but today, hmmm, not so much. Time to regroup.
Rhinos and other friends go away. How far away is variable. How long they stay away is up to them and their circumstances.
We Rhinos hold these absent friends dear to our hearts. We look forward to their return, but We don’t count on it. We wish them well.
We have no other option. But then, We don’t need one.
RhinoLore is all part of a giant familial tapestry of Tales We merrily share. Each of Us offers our experiences, and then delights in seeing how they reflect RhinoExperiences through the Ages.
Rhinos naturally think in a story format, involving plot, characters, heroes (!), situation, etc. Fortunately, We are an exciting Species, so our Annals are almost always stimulating.
Not every Account is cheery, but then, these are History, not Fiction. Nature is not primarily focused on “Cheery”.
On our most Philosophical Days, We Rhinos can see disappointed expectations as a Growing Opportunity.
All the rest of the time, We tend to think of unexpected difficulties as a Pain in the Neck.
Rhinos are only Pretty Perfect, We blush to admit.
Rhinos find that when We are feeling Upbeat, everything seems to contribute to the overall Upbeatiness. It seems to be how things work.
We enjoy these periods while they last, and look forward to their return when they take a break.
We like to keep our options simple.
