the fool’s journey

It all starts with the void, right?

I had no clue how I wanted to kick this thing off — obviously I have to start somewhere. I’ve had so many blank notebooks just waiting for me to take that first step, to just write *something* and get started.

The leap of faith is sometimes a scary thing! And sometimes I overthink it!

I knew I would be taking a walk today and maybe I’d take a photo that I could use to illustrate some of the lessons from the Fool; maybe it would be my feet on the edge of the water or something. Since I was walking alone, I wasn’t sure how I’d be able to pull it off.

But as I walked home, I noticed a single slack-liner who’d set up his line between two trees, precariously balancing, putting one foot in front of the other. Sometimes you fall off the line, and sometimes you just keep going. You wobble, you laugh, but you don’t get better at it until you actually try. Every time you try, you know a little bit more than you did the last time. Just don’t overthink it.
