The first day, the day of the fool. Feeling like a fool; lost, bewildered, and confused. Not a fool — and idiot. A fool plays her role intentionally. She does not bump into walls because she doesn’t see them. A fool sees. A fool sees the wall, and the person watching. The idiot stumbles blindly without ever seeing.
Play the fool. Be the fool. Speak truth to the king without losing your head.
Bring egos back into place.
But see the wall and the people watching.
[update 9/7/06] I’m adding this picture because of the great question in the comments about Serach bat Asher. This is the mask I made of Serach for the “Pageant of Biblical Mothers” workshop with R’Lynn Gottleib. I hadn’t thought about Serach as the Fool before and it’s a really great association. Thanks Gavrielah!
