The guys at Weird Walk travel the ancient paths and visit the sacred sites, immersing themselves in the folklore and customs of the British isles, fanning the faint embers of magic that still smoulder in the grate and conjuring that elusive temporal trackway of history and mystery, a weird walk that bypasses nostalgia and leads us back towards optimism and re-enchantment. Check them out at www.weirdwalk.co.uk.
Charles Schulz was a fan of Stonehenge too, on one of his rare trips abroad, he visited the UK in 1975 and stayed at South Farm House in Upton Lovell, Wiltshire. During this trip he visited Stonehenge for the first time, reportedly fascinated by the inherent magic of the megalithic stones, he would later make reference to them in his Peanuts strip. Schulz was well known for posing existential questions regarding the nature of life; illustrating how humans struggle to create meaning in a universe where no meaning is evident. In this instance, it is Sally and Linus deconstructing the tedious daily bus ride to school, with Sally claiming she meant to get on the tour bus to Stonehenge and somehow mistakenly found herself on the bus to Pinecrest Elementary School instead. In the space of three panels, Schulz deftly uses the esoteric and ancient mystery that surrounds Stonehenge as an otherworldly device to counter the mundanity of the seemingly never-ending daily bus ride to school. The cogent philosophical undertones echo the notion that maybe the disappointment and disillusionment inherent in human life hasn’t changed that much in 5000 years.
