A surprise visitor came to my garden yesterday: the neighbor's pig and 2 of her little piggies. She was a sizable brown sow with a snout darkened by rooting in the earth.
My sweetie had already complained about her previous 4 visits. She has plowed substantial sections of our lawn and meadow, looking for grubs, i assume, and leaving an uneven mess behind.
Fortunately, she doesn't seem as interested in the flower beds as she is in my wood chip paths.
Impermanence: What was smooth is now rough.
Dissatisfaction: What was smooth is now rough.
Emptiness: The lawn is composed of not-lawn elements (e.g., grubs, dirt, grass). Lawn is just an idea i have, a concept that proves to be empty of meaning.
Maybe i should dub this porcine teacher of the Dharma "Buddha."
