Dear Don: Dragon…

Arbor Low and Stanton Moor Imbolc 001 (121)Dear Don,

‘Morphology of the Dragon’… that has to qualify as a chapter title… I really think that between that photo and the lay of the land, you are on to something with Uffington, you know. That would explain the zoological debate there…or move it firmly into the arena of cryptozoology.

I like that expression, you know… ‘lay of the land’, when a lay is poem meant to be sung. Mind, I like your idea of the Philistines being Lovers of Stone… You know they are thought by some to have been the Sea Peoples of the Rameses inscriptions? They ended up rebuilding cities for Rameses III, so stone might have featured largely in their lay…

Another one of the ‘Songs of the Stone’?

Those particular stones may well be ‘recent’… and to us certainly… and given our recent experiences with stones being anywhere but where they should be, do we have any certainty they were ever there before we noticed them?

Mind… I found came across another on the way back from our last adventure… it just happened to be right next to the road over the moor…Not sure how we missed it. Of course, that too could be a new arrival… possibly overnight…

Your ‘wild and woolly theory’ is neither wild nor woolly in my eyes… in fact, it would explain a lot of the anomalies we have encountered both at Deadshaw Sick and various other places. It might not satisfy the scientific mind demanding of concrete proof, but it works for me.

Speaking of stones, we may have to trip back out to Stanton Moor at some point… we missed a couple of circles, including Doll Tor, which looks worth a visit. There is also a Heart Stone on the moor itself… and an Earl Grey Tower… which sort of makes it obligatory.

The Beast was bested last night… wish the camera had been handy. There was a cricket in 14 sept 155the living room… The dread paw attempted to explore possibilities, expecting it to scuttle away like a spider no doubt… but of course the thing leapt a couple of foot away each time, leaving a most confused Beast looking at me with head to one side and an offended expression…

  1. There is so much to learn from all the travels and exploration you all are doing, and what we learn is always changing over time as we learn new things. It is good to keep studying because we will never run out of things to learn about our world today, yesterday and before written time. It is such an exciting study. We are constantly led in new directions or to go back and re-examine for new clues. thank you so much. Anne


We'd love to hear from you...
