one patch of earth

When I get impatient with my dog for spending a while sniffing at one patch of earth, I slow down and wonder: what is it, one patch of earth?  What would it take to explore, to understand, one patch of earth?  A lifetime.  That is all we have and that is all we are, one patch of earth.  Is it enough?  That is the question of our lives.
