Pranu Mutteddu, Sardinia

The necropolis of Pranu Mutteddu is one of the most important funerary areas of pre-Nuragic Sardinia and is located near Goni, a small village in the province of South Sardinia. The complex has the highest known concentration of menhirs (large standing stones) and megaliths in Sardinia (about sixty, variously distributed in pairs, groups or arrays), two megalithic tombs and a Domus de Janas surrounded by stone circles. Domus de Janas (Sardinian: “House of the Fairies” or of the “Witches”) are a type of pre-Nuragic chamber tombs found in Sardinia. They consist of several chambers quarried out, resembling houses in their layout.

The site was used from the early Chalcolithic Period (late 5th millennium BC to early 3rd millennium BC) to the time of the Ozieri Culture, a prehistoric, pre-Nuragic culture that lived in Sardinia from circa 3200 to 2800 BC.

Większość ludzi nie żyje, tylko goni za czymś przez całe życie. Usiłują osiągnąć jakiś cel, daleko na widnokręgu, i w tej gorączce dążenia tak się zmęczą i zadyszą, że tracą poczucie otaczającego ich spokojnego piękna, obok którego przebiegają pędem. Potem, kiedy ocknąwszy się odzyskują nareszcie trzeźwość sądu, pierwszą rzeczą, jaka ich uderza, jest poczucie, że zdążyli się zestarzeć, znużyć życiem i zobojętnieć już nawet na to, czy osiągnęli swój cel, czy nie.
—  Jean Webster “Tajemniczy opiekun”

Nie wiem, co się ze mną dzieje.

Porażka goni porażkę.

Wstyd za wstydem.

Jestem teraz jedną wielką słabością.

Marzenia oddalają się ode mnie.

Dwa kroki w przód, miliony kroków w tył.

Boli mnie każda cząsteczka jestestwa.

Nienawiść, tworzy mnie nienawiść.

Łzy, krew, krzyk, słabość.

Cała moja siła odeszła. Zagubiłam się.

Nic nie warta, sięgam dna. 

Przegrywam. Zagubiona. Bez kontroli.

Muszę odpocząć, odzyskać siebie. 

Zawalczyć, tym razem po cichu.

Listen

“I am here because you are here.” - Qui-Gon


I had to make this a short soundbite because I still cannot believe the way Qui-Gon says that line. As a master and teacher and wise sage Jedi, you’d expect him to say it matter-of-factly, with a downward sloping inflection throughout the phrase - maybe a slight emphasis on the first “here” and a pause before that and “because”. But nO. Instead he emphasizes the “you”, emphasizes that he is there specifically for Obi-Wan. And his tone is just so teasing and…sensual even. Listen to it in any other imagined flirty context and it fits perfectly.

Example: Obi-Wan showering when Qui-Gon suddenly walks in naked.

“Qui-Gon? You’ll be late for the meeting - why are you here?”

Qui-Gon chuckled, stepping into the shower behind Obi-Wan and wrapping his arms around his waist with an impish smile. “I am here because you are here.”


Or: Commander Qui-Gon showing up to provide Obi-Wan and the 212th with reinforcements.

They walked towards each other, fond smiles on their faces as they embraced in the middle of camp. “Qui-Gon,” Obi-Wan started, “I thought you were stationed halfway across the galaxy. What are you doing all the way out here?”

Qui-Gon chuckled. “I am here because you are here. That’s all the reason I need.”


Or or: Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and the clones celebrate not dying and get drunk.

Qui-Gon stumbled into Obi-Wan’s tent, smiling drunkenly at the man sitting on the cot. 

“Excuse you, sir,” Obi-Wan slurred, pointing a wobbly finger in Qui-Gon’s general direction, “but I believe your tent is that a-way.” He dramatically waved the same arm somewhere towards his left, swaying dangerously and trying to stifle his giggles. “I -hic- hope no one saw you come in. Clones gossip you know. Go on now, shoo shoo, you have no -hic- reason to be here.”

Obi-Wan was all but laughing at his drunken teasing as Qui-Gon stumbled forward and sat heavily next to him, slinging an arm around his shoulder. “Why my dear Obi-Wan -hic- I am here because yoouuu are here.”

They collapsed into silly giggles on the bed, holding each other tightly and falling asleep with smiles on their faces.


TL;DR: QUI-GON IS A FLIRT AND NEEDS TO STOP
