Someone said to us recently, “You must love Stonehenge replicas!” Haha! *bitter laugh* Let’s get this straight–there is probably no one in the world as tired of Stonehenge replicas as we are! How could they be? We’re the only ones who look at them all the time, search for them, judge them, read about them…
We mention this because we could hardly get ourselves to do this post. Mankind’s desire to make new Stonehenges grows and grows, but our will to chronicle them, frankly, wanes. After all, there are 6 billion or so of you and only, well, one or two of us.
Click on any of these pictures to learn more about the replica depicted. We are far too busy with our anguish about how nobody truly understands us and nobody else perceives the world with our subtle aesthetic and metaphysical understandings or appreciates our artistic worldly view… alas and alack! We suddenly feel the world could do with more black Stonehenge replicas–to go with our clothes, our nails, our hair and our lips.
The one glimmer of hope in this dark business is the kids who continue to make their little Stonehenges with enthusiasm. Often they manage to do better than older people because they are innocent enough to actually look at Stonehenge and see that it’s not made up of rectangles and straight lines. Even when they do include straight lines, they’re likely to get the proportions and stone shapes closer to right.
Have we whined enough? No? Look at these shoes–we’ve only had them three weeks and the heels are worn right through! And anyway: global warming, governmental corruption, big corporations, joblessness, hunger, conspiracies, garbage in orbit, garbage in the oceans, bigots, deforestation, extinction of species, flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, Michele Bachmann, reality television, people who don’t use their turning lights, Twitter planning to put adverts RIGHT IN YOUR TWITTER STREAM without so much as a by-your-leave or an if-I-may, the revival of Clippy… It’s all too much!
Wait. . . . You know what? We’re kind of feeling better now. That cheered us up. Or maybe it’s the fact that we’ve finished our post for the week. Either way we’re all smiles here. Time for a cat henge!
Awwwww! Cats make everything better. All is right with the world!
So until next time, friends, happy shiny henging!
