The Indecisive Man

"... and so we see that the Fool has assumed a new guise, that of the indecisive man. But we can see that it is the Fool as always, stumbling along the path of Life. He is lost in a storm of emotions, lost in a web of conflicting desires... torn between a woman whom he desires, and an ideal toward which he strives... and thus he fulfills the prophecy of the stars, reaching toward perfection, yet never finding it..."

"... and so the Fool, in his excellent disguise, must make a decision: to pursue that which he can attain, or try for something better... he thinks he knows the answer, but his united heart and mind have other plans... and so he wanders on, in confusion, seeking an unanswerable answer..."
