Here, a lone dreamer has either just escaped the wonder (or terror) of some world beneath the pond, or is, perhaps, the child of some reality he hopes to leave behind by exploring depths of some personal unknown. Either way, the image compels us to contemplate the subtle boundary between the beginning of one world and the end another. And, to some extent, question just who exactly is the “fool” in all of it: Those who leap into the depths of and for adventure, or the ones who climb out of it?
