You know the legend of King Arthur, right?
In T.H. White’s “Once and Future King,” Arthur – or Wart – accompanied Sir Kay, his foster-brother, to a jousting tournament.
Wart was serving as a lowly squire to his brother when Kay sends him to find his forgotten sword. What Wart found instead was the magical, mythical “Sword in the Stone.”
After proving he was the one, and no one else, who could pull the sword from the stone, Wart nee Arthur, became rightful King of England.
There sure are days when I feel like Wart, that someone messed up and put me in charge, when clearly I am not the person “they” think I am.
I’m not saying I’m some kind of magical, mythical creature, because most times I feel – no, I know – that I am in way over my head. I’m trying to work my way into the role of Queen of Everything – or at least in my little kingdom – but it’s not going so great.
I think I’m going to need a wizard….
