Anyone any good at symbolism? I'm never sure whether the author is purposely working on symbols even if they don't say so, or whether the archetypal symbols just pop up given the subject, or whether the author just thought the picture looked good!
Do we read anything into the fact that he is leaping from bare rock, and then downwards comes growth right down to the river which looks quite lush - then through the gap away into the distance (future?). It looks like snowcapped mountains to me. Our fool is in the realm of mists (mystery) between the earth and the sky.
I think it is good to start a new thread quite quickly, otherwise we will grow old together doing this. The only problem may be the time differences, given that we come from all over the planet.
