Shui Jiao

This is Shui Jiao the pig. Shui Jiao the pig likes to chase sunflower seeds. This can sometimes be difficult for poor Shui Jiao because sunflower seeds do not move around a great deal. They do not dance, or run, or even bounce. If Shui Jiao nudges them with her snout she can sometimes edge them along the ground a little, but this is not terribly exciting for her. It is only when her kind and loving mother, Ros, throws the seeds across the living room that things start to look up! Shui Jiao the pig grunts and leaps and rolls all over the shagpile rug in front of the roaring fire. What a lark!

Recently, Shui Jiao has been feeling a little confused about her identity. Shui Jiao the pig is not Chinese, but she has a Chinese name. Her name means ‘water dumpling’. But she is not a water dumpling either. She is a pig. This makes Shui Jiao feel rather confused. Furthermore, she lives in a world inhabited by dogz, but she knows that she is not a dog. And now she is changing colour like a chameleon. How perplexing! Poor Shui Jiao!

Shui Jiao decides to take up Zen rock gardening as a means of resolving her indeterminate sense of identity. She feels content when she rakes the sand and arranges the rocks. However, sunflower seeds are not very Zen, though they do provide an important source of food that is both tasty and nutritious.

Shui Jiao the pig likes sunflower seeds very much. But she would also like to awaken her primal consciousness. This is one of life’s conundrums that is difficult to resolve. Shui Jiao thinks she will play with her bouncy ball instead.

Cultivating her garden can wait until another day.
