Did you know rhinoceros is a dying species? Soon, we may only see them in books, films and other archives. We will never be able to experience how it is to be around them, to have them with us and share the world. The same goes with machines, and other things as a matter of fact. Some things are simply never coming back. We can still look at them, hear and even touch them, but we will never know how it is to be around them, when they are full of pulsating life. This experience dies out with the last living form of its kind. Sometime, somewhere, someone said that people forget all kinds of things, but they never forget how someone made them feel. I look at this steel Rhinoceros and wonder: how it sounds, moves, how it would make me feel...? Would I like it? Would I be excited? What emotions would its living presence evoke in me? Your imagination is the only helping hand here, but it doesn't always help you they way you would like it to... Like everything else in life, it has its own boundaries. I often try to remember and bring up the best memories from the time when I used to be with my girlfriend but... No matter how hard I try, it doesn't feel like anything even moderately close to what I have felt at those moments. I know it happened, I know it was real, and I know how amazing it felt. But when I think about it, it feels like any other daydreaming... bland, unreal... and too distant to be vivid enough. Some things are never coming back... Cherish and be grateful for the moments you experience and enjoy. Remember... most of them are probably never coming back...
