So it's April Fools Day and there is no grander a fellow than the fool in life,
The fool leaps to its joy and falls before strife,
No magic eludes him neither the chance to have fun,
the fool is the human who dances close to the sun.
We may try and avoid the fool in life, but the inner fool is always calling.
The fool frees us from our limitations, encourages our greatness and pushes us to step forward into the great unknown. And where many may judge us as foolish, the fool is the bridge to uncertainty and freedom.
The fool also reminds us, when we are being fickle humans, when we are taking ourselves and life far too seriously, to have a laugh, add some colour into our world and have fun.
A writer's life is that of the fool. When we let our words create whimsy, our inner world be shared on the page, writing is a freedom tool, writing is a leaping fool!
What fools and funny people inspire you to take life more lightly?
