Dionysus is such a great choice for the fool...the ecstic festivals etc held in his honour really make me think of "fool" behaviour. The need to sometimes just let it all go and take on whatever comes, leave your responsibilities behind.
It was said that wherever he went, he could stir people into ecstasy, causing them to leave their homes, drop their chores, and even forget their kids, going on mad dancing and drinking jags...people were even said to dance themselves to death... eventually, they would return...but men of anxcient Greece used to fear that their wives would go off with one of these Dionysian cults and never return!
That sums up the fool to me...

In the workbook, I coloured the ravine as a velley...he's about to plunge into lush green...guess I take a rather positive view of hedonism, eh
