"Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us."

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.

As summer ends and falls to start
The darkness increase as the light depart
But on this day the sun and moon
Share equal time from night to noon
The morning air has chilling nip
Apple cider’s warmth we’ll sip
Second harvest’s yield is stored
The seeds we’ve sown have reaped reward
Circle ‘round the Mabon rite
As day gives way into the night

I love hearing crickets singing on my campus when I get of class, they remind me of Apollon.

Never thought of cricket chirping, going with the thought of Apollo.
I bet now when I hear them, I’ll think back to this and think of him too! 
Haha ^^
