Things are not always as they appear!
Usually when we think "fool" we imagine a simpleton, someone who is out of touch with reality or an object of social ridicule. The common celebration of April Fools Day is a reflection of this attitude--we pull pranks and try to make our friends look silly--just for fun.
"May Innocence find wisdom". The fool has no agenda of his own and no axe to grind....he waits receptively, making himself open and available for the next magical opportunity.
So...especially when the sky is falling...the Fools strategy is wiser than it might seem to the casual observer. He holds to his own innocence rather than finding others guilty. He is not brooding or thinking too much. He is pure, optomistic potential, spontaneous and ready to be activated for the greater good.
The Fool embodies the spirit of spring, which represents hope and new beginnings.
