Claddagh: traditional Irish ring depicting hands, a heart and a crown. The hands symbolize Friendship, the heart is Love, and the crown for Loyalty. The wearer turns the ring and wears it on different hands to symbolize their relationship.

On the right hand :
Hearts point away from the body—you are single and possibly looking for love.

Hearts point toward the body—your heart has been captured; you’re in a relationship.

On the left hand:
Hearts point away from the body— you are engaged.

Hearts point toward the body— you are married.

The ring is usually passed down through the generations, mother to daughter or grandmother to granddaughter. Though these rings are not strictly feminine anymore.

10 fun firefly facts

Or you, know. Firebugs. I’ve heard that one recently. I also discovered that California fireflies don’t glow from that special person. It was super fun watching him get fascinated and catch them.
Also I think they mention the bio-luminescent thing on Teen Wolf. Yeah. Random, pop culture thing for you there.

Did I mention I hit my head pretty hard today? I’m gonna stop being random now.

Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.
