You are very poised, Dominika! And the godly headcovering looks nice on you.

Thank you!  I actually shaved it off back in June for my former band's last gig; the rest of the members hated it from the getgo and since I was the one quitting and putting the project to an end, it was a gesture of conciliation on my part.  After seeing some pictures of that night, though, I made two decisions: grow the mustache back and lose some weight!  It got to the point of curling with wax last week, finally, so it's on the way back and even my wife, who used to hate my facial hair experiments, has conceeded that, at 41 years of age, it suits me.

...those are fake flowers in my hair.  ;) 

It's Ukrainian Independence day....and while I wore an embroidered shirt to work, I couldn't very well wear the flowers....so, Snapchat fixed that for me.

I'm halting between deciding you're the one on the far left, in front, or the far right. If the far left, that's a dashing weskit.

I concur.  He is the serious and very handsome guy on the far left.

Indians stand in church with crossed arms just like that.  I think Old Believers do as well. 
I've been scolded for that a couple of times.
So have I, but it is old custom:

Do Romanians and Serbs have similar patterns to the world famous Ukrainian shirts?
Romanians more similar (just watch some videos on YT from some church solemnities in Romanian, or put in Google "Romanian traditional national shirt"; as for Serbs, it depends on region, we usually prefer flowers than crosses, but in some areas the shirts are like Ukrainian ones, again, put in Google "српска кошуља", e.i "Serbian shirt"); at also applies to Bulgars.

But in Mike's tradition it looks rebellious....that's all i meant....
I'm not so sure; sometimes I do the same thing, I mean crossing my arms during the service, beacause it's easier to keep standing in the same position, focus on prayer or have control on body (especially hands) movements. And nobody has scolded me regarding that (I hear comments only about the issue that I'm usually restless, I wave and wable my legs :p).

There's a section in my parish where all the men tend to cross their arms while standing (me included).  I never thought about it until now, but all of us that do inhabit a particular space in the nave.

I don't know what I'm supposed to do otherwise.
Same.
