I too, have played the fool just like the lyrics of the popular song... Yes, fool also known as trickster- that common character subject of myth and legend found throughout literature... To the Native Americans the "fool" is often depicted as coyote -bumbling, clownish but in truth, deeply wise- one who craftily turns the tables, has the last laugh and so, I aim to be... Recently, I've been reading Sandra Marinelli's book on healing, on trauma, illness and loss and the role of writing as an empowering act. And I've learned finally, to bury the past, focus on renewal and transform devastation into something dear and defining; alchemist, I spin gold sprinkle stardust from out of ash as my poems emerge from the cinders of pain a metamorphosis magical and ever enchanting.
