The Fool is off on his travels with his bag and a white rose. His dog looks up at him, questioning his apparent inattention so close to the edge of the cliff. Alternatively, perhaps he is just wondering if the rose is tasty.
Begin your journey with optimism and minimal baggage. Set your sights on the destination, but be sure to watch your step, but also take time to smell the roses and enjoy the journey. In this case, it is not about the quickest way from A to B.
