cfp: wise fools

All you devoted Paradoxes readers might be keen to learn that I just put out a new CFP over at Unsettling Wonder. The theme for the issue is ‘Wise Fools’.

Here’s it is for your perusal and general distribution:
CFP1-2 And here’s a tale of a wise fool, to explain more thoroughly than I could what this issue is about.

One night the Hodja looked into his well and saw there the reflection of the full moon.

“Oh no!” he exclaimed. “The moon has fallen from the sky and into my well!”

He ran into his house and returned with a hook attached to a rope. He then threw the hook into the water and commenced to pull it up again, but it became stuck on the side of the well. Frantically the Hodja tugged and pulled with all his might. The hook suddenly came loose, and the Hodja fell over backwards, landing flat on his back. Scarcely able to move, he looked up into the sky and saw the full moon above him.

“I may have injured myself in doing so,” he said with satisfaction, “but at least I got the moon back into the sky where it belongs.”
