Ever wondered what the Fool stands for?

The fool has a name apparently (although what does ‘the fool’ really designate?), but no number. He can be named, but he cannot be counted. He stands out of the statistics. He IS before anything begins. Or IS he after everything ends? Most importantly: he IS. He is the free spirit, the forever present. No plans, no expectations, no regrets, just presence. The traveler that is always on a watch for the next adventure that will take him out of his mind, but always back to his senses. He is brave and confident, full of vitality, always on the go, always seeking. The world is full of opportunities. One must look through the eyes of the fool to really spot them.
