“This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.” –Mark Twain quote

Leonardo da Vinci

      Happy New Year, April Fools! Yes, April 1st is New Year’s Day.

“If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings.” –Welsh Proverb

      At the head of the procession of Constellations, as observed from planet Earth on its orbit about the Sun, there is the Ram, leading the parade.

“I have great faith in fools – self-confidence, my friends call it.” –Edgar Allan Poe

      When a papal bull of 1582, the Gregorian Calendar, moves New Year’s Day to January 1st throughout the Holy Roman Empire, the French shrug, and hold two New Year’s Eve parties, the old one with the Ram, and the new one with the Goat.

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself a fool.” –William Shakespeare

      Our question of this day is: What kind fool would laugh with the gods?

“A sense of humor is the only divine quality of man.” –Arthur Shopenhauer

     Perhaps the answer is, a reverent irreverent one.

“Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee, And I’ll forgive Thy great big one on me.” –Robert Frost

    This blog is for the kind of fool who laughs at a fool when they look in a mirror, and with the gods when they look for the big picture on a blank page.

“Suppose the world were only one of God’s jokes, would you work any the less to make it a good joke instead of a bad one?” –George Bernard Shaw

      Happy New Year! And many happy returns of the day!
