The Fool


What I love about this card is how well it represents the young man setting off on his own to begin a journey but not having the means to do it alone, yet ... and so taking what might be seen as fool-hardy risks, or opportunites for adventure.

That's how I see the butterfly and the zeplin with the alligator (croc?) coming into the scene. Have you ever just watched a butterfly fly about? They're always all over the place, spending energy flapping around not really knowing where the hell they are going. heh. Then there is the alligator is to remind us of the risks that are inherant in setting out onto the unknown. (but paired with the zeplin shows that risks can bring us to great heights/achievements).

So who knows how this plays out, is the truck driver the love of this guys life (or maybe a just a good lay?) or is he a homocidal maniac? So the spirit of the fool lives on in this card. Love it!
