Besides looking for an excuse to use my newly acquired banjo in a recording, the main inspiration for this song and lyrics came from The Fool trump card.
Traditionally, The Fool is card "0" of the Major Arcana. It stands for no-thing, from which all things have their source.
It represents the beginning of the journey of life.
It also represents the emptiness full of infinite potential.
It is divine consciousness.
Therefore, it is a holy fool.
My hope is that this will be the first of many Tarot inspired tracks.
