Sir Kay joins us this week and reminds us that being overzealous can have its problems!
Sir Kay is another character in these legends that I am aware of, but totally unsure of how he fits into the legends. I recall the cartoon movie version of Arthur, The Sword in the Stone (IMDB says 1963?!) where Kay treats the fostered Arthur like a slave, rather than a little brother. Being the mother of two boys, that is sometimes how they interact, but it never lasts for long!
So, what traits does Sir Kay have to share with us this coming week? For one, he was the seneschal (steward) of the Arthurian court, so it was his job to ensure things were as they were wanted by Arthur and Queen Guinevere. That would account for him being known as over-zealous but also because of this, his trait (which is what I remember from the movie) of being meddlesome, fits. He would have had his fingers in all the pies, it was not what was known, but who knew it and Sir Kay would have been the man to know: he would have been one of the connecting characters of the inner workings of Camelot.
Sir Kay could almost be called the Intranet of Camelot, for being the steward, that was his role. For this, he would have been highly organised and expected the same of others, which probably attributes to the overzealous nature of him that I can vividly recall.
So, what does that bode for us this week? Sir Kay would have listened far more than he talked I suspect: It’s amazing what we learn when we pin our two ears back and not speak for a time. He would have been very dedicated, so there’s another positive trait. He is probably very wise with how humans interact, their foibles, strengths and their behaviour. He would have made a good counsellor I feel. If you were lucky enough to be called a friend by Kay, he would have been fiercely loyal. However, his downside (if you can call it that?) was that he was seen as being overzealous. To this week, perhaps reign in the enthusiasm and see what happens without it being in control of you. Sir Kay must have been quite good at hiding that aspect of himself!
