A Fool's Journey Book II
Book Two is the second of an ongoing book series where the Author takes pause to reflect upon his life as a jigsaw puzzle. It is a mystery where he begins to fit the pieces of the puzzle together in the hope of achieving greater understanding of why he is here. "I share with Roland Barthes the opinion that the text is formed by the reader rather than by the author." — Rain-walker More
In the story of Tarot, the Fool represents each of us as we begin our life journey. At birth, we willingly play the role of fool because only the purest of Spirit brings forth the innocence and blind faith to trust.
The Fool is ready to embrace whatever comes down his or her path to learn the lessons of the world, and is oblivious to the hardships and vicissitudes of life. Newly born, bright, and open to spontaneously venture to adventure; from comfort and joy—to pain and suffering.
It is in this context that I share with you the stories of my life: a fool’s journey. So please, if you will…
"Sit by my side, come as close as the air,
Share in a memory of gray;
Wander in my words, dream about the pictures
That I play of changes."
-- “Changes” by Phil Ochs
