  Dragons always preferred to attack from above, Dany had learned. Should either get between the other and the sun, he would fold his wings and dive screaming, and they would tumble from the sky locked together in a tangled scaly ball, jaws snapping and tails lashing. The first time they had done it, she feared that they meant to kill each other, but it was only sport.

Majestic Underwater Portraits by Samantha French

“My current body of work is focused on swimmers underwater and above. Using vague yet consuming memories from my childhood summers spent immersed in the tepid lakes of northern Minnesota, I attempt to recreate the quiet tranquility of water and nature; of days spent sinking and floating, still and peaceful.”

Samantha French is an artist born and raised in Minnesota, USA who creates large-scale oil on canvas pieces. French has a wonderful impressionistic style utilizing loose brush strokes and vibrant colors in her paintings.

“These paintings are a link to my home and continual search for the feeling of the sun on my face and warm summer days at the lake. They are my escape, a subtle reprieve from the day-to-day. At the same time, I am drawn to an idealistic time before my own, where swim caps and wool swimsuits were commonplace. This combination of memory, observation and photography (old and new) has allowed me to preserve the transitory qualities of water and remembrance.” via: emptykingdom

  She was a young filly, spirited and splendid. Dany knew just enough about horses to know that this was no ordinary animal. There was something about her that took the breath away. She was grey as the winter sea, with a mane like silver smoke.

Hesitantly she reached out and stroked the horse’s neck, ran her fingers through the silver of her mane. Khal Drogo said something in Dothraki and Magister Illyrio translated. “Silver for the silver of your hair, the khal says.” x

“….On reflection, I suggest that, we love each other. Absolutely and unequivically, for the rest of our lives. One beautiful day at a time.” - Hugh Laurie as Sam Bell in Maybe Baby

Just finished watching Maybe Baby.  I think one of the best filmsHugh has ever been in. A great romantic comedy if you figure out the adult humour in it. Made me cry at the end a tad bit, but all in all, I’d give it two thumbs up.
