The Lope: The Want of Megaliths

The Want of Megaliths

In lieu of Stonehenge or other ancient megalithic monuments, one makes due. A bit over a week ago, we stopped to admire Cadillacs in the mist.

The crescent moon set last night on the last day of winter.

And while traversing Arizona - which uses a radiant star as a flag - we looked for settings in which to pay reverence to the almost eternal sky.

And found one, a few days ago.

Monuments are what you make them, be they ancient by the measure of a civilization, by the span of an era or by the yardstick of your own human life.

next: The crescent moon is seen from The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, AZ last night.

then: Ace Jackalope with a souvenir Arizona flag

last: A BNSF mainline train passes behind a Route 66 icon. The Wigwam Village in Holbrook, AZ rests under the stars in a 30-second time exposure taken a week ago.
