"I believe Wills can rebuild Camelot and I will be his Merlin. We will return to the chilvary, pageantry and glory of King Arthurs court. William will re-make the Monarchy by showing love, leadership and compassion."~Excerpt from "Diana: Life of a Legend" Published by Globe International Inc. 1999
Yet another animal related story has cropped up which ties in beautifully with the ongoing, noted, drift of events: badgers, bullocks, Prince William etc. etc. We read from the BBC of how 17 a year old collie dog, Lucy, has somehow managed to travel 550 miles to Haddington, East Lothian, after vanishing from her home in Cornwall on 6th February. Her owners, Sonya and William McKerron were reunited with their pet after she was taken to the Edinburgh Cat and Dog Home by the finders, where her implanted micro-chip was discovered.
This resonates on so many levels with my fears for future humanity: a collie being a black and white coloured herding dog, Haddington being only 6 miles along the A6093 from Pencaitland, the scene of the 16 electrocuted bullocks and, most incredibly of all perhaps, that the name McKerron comes from McCarron, which itself derives from the Irish, MacCarrghamhna, a calf. (see here) . Notwithstanding their Christian names, William and Sonya, the latter meaning wisdom and being a diminutive form of Sophia (see Gnostic interpretations).
We must also bear in mind the connections of both Cornwall and Edinburgh to King Arthur, the K9's name, Lucy - perhaps Lucifer, the microchipping, and the ongoing, ultimately most important, farming aspect.
