Currents of thought are a common result of rainy days. Whether walking through it or listening to it from a chair or the door of a pig sty, rain inspires recollection and retrospection, and consideration.
Raindrops fall on pigs backs like the reminders of opportunities from their past lives. Knowing this, they will not waste a moment of a rainy morning, or any part of a damp day, in contemplation. For pigs understand, without ever speaking of it, just what nature has destined for the swine and what their end must be.
