"In Ukraine, they say that every man must do three things to fulfill his duty: plant a tree, have a child, and build a house. I planted a tree in grade school, I had a daughter fourteen years ago, but with how the economy has been, I’m starting to fear that I’ll never have the money to build a house."
"What was the happiest moment you ever spent with your daughter?"
"I taught her to walk on a small playground near our house. I’d hold onto her hands and walk her around slowly. She was laughing so hard, and she was making noises the entire time, I could sense she was trying to tell me something."
"What do you think she was trying to tell you?"
"Just how happy she was to be there with me."

A few years ago, award-winning animal photographer Seth Casteel became an overnight sensation when his photos of dogs underwater went viral. What followed was a book deal that resulted in the New York Times best-seller Underwater Dogs.
Casteel’s new book, out Sept. 16, is possibly the only thing cuter thanUnderwater Dogs: Underwater Puppies.
Casteel on the logistics of photographing puppies underwater
I’m wearing a dog costume so that the dogs can feel like I’m one of the pack. … Just kidding. … I usually just wear a wet suit just in case. You know, if you spend 12 hours in a pool with a bunch of dogs, inevitably you’re going to get scratched up a little bit. So I do wear a wet suit. But I just hold my breath — that’s about it. I’m underwater sometimes just a few seconds, sometimes 30 seconds, 60 seconds. But I have my wet suit on. I bring the toys. I bring the fun. And we just have a blast.

Painters don’t have to imagine the story. They have probably lived it more than once.

Not just Painters, anyone that has painted something and had a drink on hand has done this.
I have a tip, don’t drink tea when painting. You will make this mistake more times than is allowed.

Tattoolock. Translock. Both. Yes.

I like the idea of Sherlock having tats which very vaguely evoke armor, to match his ‘into battle’ theme. Most importantly, some sort of ‘plate’ over the sternum to guard the heart, with the skull motif as a warning against letting it rule the head. (Well I thought it was a little neat; shut up.)
