I have always been drawn to the Tarot, and my favorite card of the Major Arcana is The Fool. For me, The Fool symbolizes innocence and the willingness to make new starts, to attempt the impossible, throw caution to the wind. The downside of The Fool is folly and indiscretion.
— Rider-Waite Tarot
Nippy dog at my heel, purse slung
across one shoulder, I stumble
cliffward, sniffing a white rose. Snow
rings the mountains, my winter coat
is torn. If only I would turn,
face the sun setting at my back.
Instead I follow my shadow —
where the journey begins.
