|Wills 'n Kate meet Clyde on 4/4/13|
We touched on potential "year and a day" magick in the very recent Marilyn Manson / Clutha Bar related post. (here)
Yesterday, 3/4, it was announced that the Glasgow XX Commonwealth Games are to start with a bang, five large tower blocks - The Red Road flats - are to be demolished as part of the opening ceremony. (here).
The date is 23rd July, allegedly a year and a day after royal baby George's (Pythagorean 22/7) birth, whilst the games last for eleven days.
Apparently, the destruction of the towers is seen in some quarters as "a bold and dramatic statement of intent from a city focused on regeneration", although others disagree.
It's worth noting that the Commonwealth Games mascot is called Clyde, "a thistle named after the river", and that the Clutha Bar is also named after the same.
It's also well worth noting that Prince William and Kate visited Glasgow exactly 364 days prior ( a year less a day) to yesterday's announcement, on 4/4/2013, when they saw mascot Clyde and played table tennis. (Masks)
What to make of it we really don't know, but for sure, watching those towers collapse will have some sort of effect on the collective psyche.
P.S- Today it is reported that a "large expanse" of mystery foam has appeared on the Clyde. here.
