Thanks for the mention, Joe. Wonderful history and imagery in the ship of fools, I’ve never heard of that. Reminds me of this image from Augustine, fitting to think of the ship of fools being built from the wood of the cross: “Toil passes, and rest will come; but rest only through toil. The ship passes, and you arrive home; but home only by means of the ship. We are sailing the high seas, after all, if we take account of the surges and storms of this world. The reason, I am convinced, that we are not drowned is that we are being carried on the wood of the cross.”
