Fools and Foolery

April 14, 2014 Chris Pearse

By way of explanation, Foolery is not meant to carry just the derogatory sense associated with the word fool. In fact I quite like the double-edged, paradox of the wise fool – the person with little intellectual baggage but plenty of sense. With the temerity to ask stupid questions that have surprising answers. The person that is oblivious to what others might think of him/her – how refreshing is that?
I like the symbology of the dog in the picture. He doesn’t judge his master – the relationship is purely emotional.
There’s little history and no future here – just presence.
I think we need more of this spirit in our culture – especially in our organisations that over-structure in a futile attempt to make existence predictable – now that is foolery.
