The Fool Card
You are the Fool card. The Fool fearlessly begins
the journey into the unknown. To do this, he
does not regard the world he knows as firm and
fixed. He has a seemingly reckless disregard
for obstacles. In the Ryder-Waite deck, he is
seen stepping off a cliff with his gaze on the
sky, and a rainbow is there to catch him. In
order to explore and expand, one must disregard
convention and conformity. Those in the throes
of convention look at the unconventional,
non-conformist personality and think What a
fool. They lack the point of view to understand
The Fool's actions. But The Fool has roots in
tradition as one who is closest to the spirit
world. In many tribal cultures, those born with
strange and unusual character traits were held
in awe. Shamans were people who could see
visions and go on journeys that we now label
hallucinations and schizophrenia. Those with
physical differences had experience and
knowledge that the average person could not
understand. The Fool is God. The number of the
card is zero, which when drawn is a perfect
circle. This circle represents both emptiness
and infinity. The Fool is not shackled by
mountains and valleys or by his physical body.
He does not accept the appearance of cliff and
air as being distinct or real. Image from: Mary

Which Tarot Card Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla
Off to the gym at lunchtime to be inducted. Generally this consisted of being led around a lot of machines by a very helpful girl (who was exactly half my weight), and being asked if I could guess what they were for.

Answers involving crushing grapes and making pasta didn't go over well, so I stuck to comments like "I put my legs WHERE?" and "I don't think my arm is supposed to bend that way."

Nah, the machines were pretty much the same as every other gym I've ever been in, with the additions of a few bells and whistles. Everything seems to give you your heart-rate now, which is handy, and there are even more safety measures built into the weights machines to stop you damaging yourself too badly. There were some free weights, but they were behind a barbed wire fence guarded by fierce dogs.

Oh well, back after work to do a proper workout...
