happy april fools’ day, a day meant to celebrate the fool in all of us.
“to the wise, life is a problem; to the fool, a solution.”

“An enormous fortress of prejudices, privileges, superstitions, lies, exactions, abuses, violences, iniquities, and darkness still stands erect in this world, with its towers of hatred.

― Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

“there are many spokes on the wheel of life.
first, we’re here to explore new possibilities.”
