It is that pre-dawn time, pregnant with mystery. The world is
poised between night and the day to come. The path before you is
illuminated by gentle moonlight as it unwinds before you like a violet
ribbon. Venus, the morning star is visible in the sky, twinkling above
brightly- an angelic guardian to guide you on your way. Yesterday has
flown and this new day is full of promise and possibility.
You see before you in the quickening light a great mountain range behind which the first rays of dawn paint the sky gold. It is here
that the path you follow leads and as you steadily ascend into the
mountains, a fresh morning breeze greets you and with its spiraling
eddies the final shadows of night flee. The sun- most glorious- Rises.
Now the path veers sharply and continues precipitously along a
ledge, giving rise to a sense of excitement in your being. For, oh,
what a panorama spreads awesomely out before you! The rose, lavender
and golden rays of the sun shaft through endless billowing clouds in which eagles fly and dark mountains peek.
Presently, you become aware of a figure approaching down the
path toward you. Such a lively figure, dressed in green. His stride is
graceful and quick and he carries a large forked staff festively wound
with vines that are plump with harvest grapes. A bundle is suspended
from a wand-like stick that he has propped over his shoulder and a
little black and white cat trots beside him, tail held high. Little
bells on his cap jingle merrily, and his gaze is rapt and joyous as he
agilely treads close to the precipice's edge as if to step off into the
air and journey through the morning clouds.
It is the Fool.
"Hail Fool!" You cry. The Fool greets you and beckons you to him. He
has something to share with you now. Spend a few moments with him and
listen to his counsel...
