When all your friends are posting pics with their significant other for Valentine’s Day but you’re still single

John needs change for a larger bill, so Sherlock says he might have some smaller notes. When John opens up Sherlock’s wallet to look, he see a small photo of John and Rosie from their trip to the zoo the month prior. John knew Sherlock had snapped the picture (he had Sherlock forward it to him), but he hadn’t realized at Sherlock had taken the time to print it out.

It wasn’t until later in the day, after he and Sherlock had long overdue conversation including some confessions, that John discovered the zoo picture was also Sherlock’s phone background.

a small selection of my reactions to slingshot from last night. guys, i really did enjoy this miniseries- there wasn’t a whole lot to it story wise but that’s perfectly understandable since it was less than a half hour of content. elena wasn’t there to put up with anyone’s shit and i love that about her. i LOVED getting to see yoyo interact more with the team, and i especially loved may and daisy having her back. THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL. all in all, a nice little thing with only a few eyerolling worthy moments to keep us entertained over hiatus.

Paul Klee (German (born Switzerland), Münchenbuchsee 1879–1940 Muralto-Locarno)

Oil on cardboard.

This work is one of Paul Klee’s Magic Square series of oil paintings and watercolors that derive from the 1914 Tunisian watercolors in which he fractured the landscape into squares. They are also related to Klee’s preoccupation with the laws of color, prompted by his teaching at the Bauhaus. The squares in this painting might be viewed as odd-shaped stones-in all the colors of the rainbow, to say nothing of the various shades of gray-assembled to form an abstract mosaic.

 

“The UN was not created to take mankind to heaven, but to save humanity from hell." 

– Second United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld, in a speech in May 1954 (pictured here on the wall in the visitors’ area at UN Headquarters in New York).

An inspriation to many around the world then and today, Dag Hammarskjöld served as Secretary-General from 1953 until he died in a plane crash in Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia, along with 15 others, in September 1961.

At the age of 47, Dag Hammarskjöld was the youngest to have held the position of Secretary-General and during his time in office he fought for the independence of the UN and guided the Organization through some of the world’s most complex crises.

”“He had been a prodigy since his adulthood — an intellectual with an uncommon gift for public administration and practical statesmanship,” said longtime UN offical Brian Urquart. "When he died in a plane crash in Africa, we grieved for him as for the most intimate of friends because we realized that working with Hammarskjöld was a privilege and an experience that would never come our way again.“

He was awarded a posthumous Nobel Prize.
