My friend just called me and asked me if I wanted a "Zen Stone Garden". After enquiring what he meant, he replied that it is and I quote (coarsely translated):
"A plack of wood with fine sand in it and a few rocks thrown in for good measure. I can also get you this small, hilarious rake that you can use to... like, rake the sand into patterns and shit. It's like a snazzy deco-element, like a drawing board for your soul if you will, or just a fucking plack with sand and some random stones on it. I just put four stones in the middle and left the fifth one in the corner to teach it some fucking manners."
Well, why the fuck not, I said. So, next week I'll be getting myself a motherfucking mini-stone garden, Zen up in this bitch.
Does anyone else have one or know someone who does and what
are they getting out of it?
