This April's Full...

April Fool's is filled with hoaxes and practical jokes that usually send the victim on a fools' errand. What would be a fools' errand? Is what I'm currently on, a fools' errand? What does the Fool even represent?

The Fool represents our innocence, creativity, spontaneity and our inner child. And the essence of this Fool?

Trust, as the Fool is self-confident and believes that the universe will provide him with what he needs. We still have the essence of the Fool; the innocence of the soul. The Fool himself is now better equipped as he has experienced the good and bad in life (shown in his costume). The Fool does not seem to be affected with the harshness (the bandage) or goodness (pearls) of life as he takes them on his side and carries on his journey. A carefree attitude and youthful energy; the Fool is willing to experience life (good and bad) and will be the driving force for his travels. No concern for the past as the Fool lives in the present and wants to explore new horizons (the Future), in order to learn his place in the universe. The Fool carries his belongings (his experience from life) on his back without a stick. He bears the weight of his past directly on his back and it does not seem to have an effect on him. And transformation, as during his wanderings the Fool will learn to achieve unity and/or enlightenment. The cycle of life from birth to death and then rebirth again. [ANSATA TAROT]

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, I guess I'm a Fool...
Here cometh April again, and as far as I can see the world hath more fools in it than ever.
Charles Lamb (1775-1834)
