Noaptea muzeelor/  Nuit européenne des musées * | European Night of Museums | 16 Mai 2015; 
Night of museums on may, 16, 2015/ 16 mai 2015.
"Noaptea Europeană a Muzeelor este un eveniment internațional iniţiat de Ministerul Culturii şi Comunicării din Franţa aflat în acest an la cea de-a unsprezecea ediţie. Consiliul Europei, UNESCO și Consiliul Internațional al Muzeelor sunt principalii susținători ai Nopții Europeane a Muzeelor, pandantul nocturn al Zilei Internaţionale a Muzeelor, care are loc întotdeauna pe 18 mai. Mai multe detalii despre Noaptea Europeană a Muzeelor puteţi găsi la adresa:http://culturecommunication.gouv.fr/


Excerpt*:
  •  "Pour sa 11ème édition, la Nuit européenne des musées propose cette année l’ouverture gratuite de plus de 1300 musées en France, et près de 3400 en Europe."
http://www.arcen.info/noapte-alba-la-pensionatul-domnesc-de-fete/  http://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Școala_Centrală_%28București%29 "Școala Centrală este o instituție de învățământ preuniversitar din București care a funcționat de-a lungul vremii sub mai multe denumiri (între care și Pensionatul Domnesc de Fete). Inițial, Școala Centrală a fost instituția dedicată educației fetelor aparținând elitei bucureștene. A fost construită printr-o rezoluție a lui Barbu Știrbey în 1851, arhitectura clădirii fiind realizată de Ion Mincu."
  • "For its 11th edition, the European Night of Museums this year offers free admission to more than 1,300 museums in France and almost 3,400 in Europe."
  •  "Pentru cea de-a 11a ediție , Noaptea Europeană a Muzeelor din acest an oferă acces gratuit la mai mult de 1300 de muzee din Franța și aproape 3.400 în Europa."

 "LA CLASSE, L'ŒUVRE !"
  • "De nouveau, en 2015, avec « la classe, l’œuvre! », écoles, établissements scolaires et musées se rapprochent autour d’œuvres sélectionnées."
  • "Din nou, în 2015, cu deviza "Munca din clasă! "Școlile și muzeele se apropie/se strang în jurul unei lucrări selectate."
Noaptea muzeelor "Protest Ediția din anul 2015 va fi una cu totul specială pentru că va fi marcată de un protest pe care Rețeaua Națională a Muzeelor din România l-a propus tuturor muzeelor din țară, membre sau încă neafiliate la organizație. Nu este însă un protest obișnuit, ci unul subtil și inedit, consecință a unui fenomen dramatic care a dinamitat comunitatea muzeală și patrimoniul său cultural. Despre ce este vorba? În ultimii 10 ani, peste 120 de sedii unde funcționează muzee de tot felul și zeci de mii de piese din colecțiile mai multor astfel de muzee sunt gata retrocedate sau aflate în curs de retrocedare. Pentru toate acestea nu sunt identificate încă soluții alternative de funcționare, situație unică în Europa și poate chiar în lume. Muzeele nu mai înseamnă nimic pentru că ele nu au fost considerate niciodată cu adevărat importante, utile societății, vectori de dezvoltare comunitară, o investiție sigură. Dar ele pot fi toate acestea dacă sunt ajutate." http://www.noapteamuzeelor.ro/

"In the quiet of the night
Let our candle always burn
Let us never lose the lessons we have learned..."

A selection of "postcards"...if I may say so: I'll start a serie from now and I'll continue in the next posts...


At this special event, a "short walk" - from University Square to the Lipscani Street (a commercial historic lane or zone of the city) - is required in order to see what we can find to plan for a visit or have a quick look... 
The night is coming fast... and the visitors are already in line at BNR (National Bank of Romania), so we're going to continue on the streets of Lipscani in search for two spots: Carturesti Library and the Expo Design from the Hanul Gabroveni (the historical place is included on the list of Night of Museums)...

But first: let's see a "souvenirs boutique" or shop with lots of beautiful popular items: costumes, ceramics plates or cups, all sort of traditional popular things...

Of course, an red item seen and named "catrinte" (in the window of shop) is bought by my sister just to complete her traditional port (a folk costume) with a new element.

Now, let's go further...to the Carturesti Library. Recently open is a special place to remember, to keep in mind in order to come back as soon as possible for new books for home collection. To come back to see new published books, or to read a book, comfortably, and/or to buy them as a gift just like the one I've received it in that night as a B-day present from my sister part...
It sound lovely, right? My sister is a funny person, warm and very social, she's bringing lots of joy and confidence, just like my others sisters in their own ways... Thankful for all of them...  

The night is on the way to have more surprises at every corner... at this  cultural and historical, european event...
Today I choose Joy! Life is a unique colored balloon and a funny piece of cake!

“Hooray,…
Hooray for May,
If I may to say it so…
Hooray… for the blue birds,
For the blue skies
And for the all blossoms,
That now we have in our sight...
And,
only, into the gardener’s soul,,
named Florar*,
you will always can find…”

Lyrics inspired by an amazing poem, from a blog post dedicated, also, to "May", 
 written by Donna Donabella (click to read: "A-May-Zing Times in the Garden")... 

So: Keep going to search new meanings in your private life quest or in every travel of soul (life/existence)... 
“Hooray,… Hooray for May, If I may to say it so… Hooray… for the blue birds, For the blue skies And for the all blossoms, That now we have in our sight... And, only, into the gardener’s soul,, named Florar*, you will always can find…”
In the same time, also, try to see beautiful things while we're still in Spring.  
"Celebrating the beautiful May"... just like a sunny and bright lovely calendaristic month...
And continues... to find joy in our beautiful May!!!


Spring is on the tide of life...
by Alexa T 
"Spring is on the tide of life,
Life of yours, life of mine,
Life is in the warm and sunny light,
When all the blooms are in sight...
Keep going...
To refresh this "new spring start",
Your restart of life, and, as well, mine...

Keep hoping to find your "lovely May",
keep hoping, as well, to always have
The chance to look at the blue infinite sky!
All is well....Spring is on the tide of life... by Alexa T "Spring is on the tide of life, Life of yours, life of mine, Life is in the warm and sunny light, When all the blooms are in sight... Keep going... To refresh this "new spring start", Your restart of life, and, as well, mine...

Keep having hope,  ...as well,  and your inner calm, For finding peace,  to wish in soul and mind, with a very lovely  soothing heart...

Keep having hope,

*"Pearls of thoughts and hopes,
Blossoms  from your soul and heart!"
Poem dedicated to my amazing strong mother, on this special occasion , of my birthday in may, 16.
"Today I choose Joy! 
Life is a unique colored balloon and a funny piece of cake! (just like in the pictures above)"
From Did you know Category/ Știați că*:
*Etymology of May*:
"The fifth month of the Gregorian calendar, following April and preceding June."
"The month May* was named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May. Conversely, the Roman poet Ovid provides a second etymology, in which he says that the month of May is named for the maiores, Latin for "elders," and that the following month (June) is named for the iuniores, or "young people" (Fasti VI.88).
May symbols:
"May's birthstone is the emerald which is emblematic of love and success.
The May birth flower is the Lily of the Valley.
The zodiac signs for the month of May are Taurus."
From Middle English, from Old English, from Old French mai, from Latin māius (“Maia's month”),
 from Maia, a Roman earth goddess, 
possibly from Proto-Indo-European *magya (“she who is great”),
 from Proto-Indo-European base *meg- (“great”)
Also,
*Romanian: Etymology
"Grecii numeau luna mai Thargelion. În România, luna mai, popular, se numește Florar*.
Greeks called Thargelion May. In Romania, May, popular, is called the florist."
floare +‎ -ar. 
Compare Italian fioraio, 
Portuguese floreiro, 
Spanish florero.

Noun
florar m (plural florari)
"one who grows or sells flowers; flower vendor; florist
(popular) May (fifth month of the Gregorian calendar)"

On May 21 is celebrated: 
The Ascension Day* and  The Feast of the Holy Great Sovereigns Constantine and Helen/ 
Sărbătoarea Sfinţilor Împăraţi Constantin şi Elena.

Timeless (9) Spring in May. Emotion. Celebration. Primăvară in Mai. Emoție. Sărbătoare.

 Random. From all the positive posts that I've read, this week: 

Sunset in May and Japanese Roses or Red Hibiscus!
Balancing. Process. Thinking.
Facing the reality. Daily. Options. 

Between past and present, present and future, new and old. Beautiful and ugliness. 
Up and down.  Pink or grey. Thoughts and facts. Plans and actions. Philosophy.
Where's the line between?
 happiness...
What it will be... Can you reply? Do you always have answers? Alternatives...
A mix of old and new unedited images, various blooms from different days of Spring...from this year and last year... Blossoms just like the Hibiscus red roses for this year and orange, yellow roses and white peonies with bride's white blooms from last year...Choose. Pick one option. But most of all...
 Be optimistic! 
In May: May you be Happy!

"E ziua-n care
Vreau să fiu doar un oarecare,
Să dăruiesc la întâmplare,
Să văd doar fețe zâmbitoare
În jurul meu." ...

"It's the day in witch,
I want to be just anybody,
To offer at random,
Just to see only smiling faces
Around me.....
....
Excuse me, Do I bothered?
If I've angry , I really do not intend to upset....
I want to ask you one question on:
When you have offered with no reason a flower?

This is for those who still mourn,
That's for the hearts that are broken,
It's for those who can give,
No matter how much they'll take back, 
and for those who don't care of how much shall they collect....

It's the day in witch,
I want to be just anybody,
To offer at random,
Just to see only smiling faces
Around me."


Spring in b&W!

From Did you know Category/ Știați că*:
is a genus (Trifolium, Latin, tres "three"+folium "leaf") of about 300 species of plants in the leguminous pea family Fabaceae. The genus has a cosmopolitan distribution; the highest diversity is found in the temperate Northern Hemisphere, but many species also occur in South America and Africa, including at high altitudes on mountains in the tropics. They are small annual, biennial, or short-lived perennial herbaceous plants. The leaves are trifoliate (rarely quatrefoiled, cinquefoil, or septfoil), with stipules adnate to the leaf-stalk, and heads or dense spikes of small red, purple, white, or yellow flowers; the small, few-seeded pods are enclosed in the calyx. Other closely related genera often called clovers include Melilotus (sweet clover) and Medicago (alfalfa or 'cavalry clover').


Clovers occasionally have leaves with four leaflets, instead of the usual three. These four-leaf clovers, like other rarities, are considered lucky.Symbolism:
..."Clovers occasionally have leaves with four leaflets, instead of the usual three. These four-leaf clovers, like other rarities, are considered lucky. Clovers can also have five, six, or more leaves, but these are rarer. The record for most leaves is 56, set on 10 May 2009. This beat the 21-leaf clover, a record set in June 2008 by the same man, who had also held the prior Guinness World Record of 18.
A common idiom is "to be (live) in clover", meaning to live a carefree life of ease, comfort, or prosperity. 
This originally referred to the fact that clover is fattening to cattle."


"Trifoiul (Trifolium) este un gen de aproximativ 300 de specii de plante din familia leguminoaselor, Fabaceae. Cea mai mare diversitate apare în zonele temperate din emisfera nordică, dar există specii care trăiesc și în America de Sud și Africa, incluzând altitudinile înalte de la tropice. Sunt plante erbacee mici anuale, bienale sau plante perene cu viață scurtă. Frunzele sunt trifoliate (rareori 5- sau 7-foliate), cu stipelele adnate pe pețioluri, iar florile sunt grupate în inflorescențe mici albe, roșii, violet sau galbene; păstăile mici, cu puține semințe, sunt închise în caliciu. Alte genuri, denumite uneori trifoisunt Melilotus (sulfină) și Medicago (culbeceasă). Numele științific este derivat din limba latină tres, "trei" și folium, "frunză"...."

"Trifoiul este simbolul tradițional irlandez, fiind adoptat de Sfântul Patriciu pentru Sfânta Treime.
Trifoiurile au ocazional patru foliole în loc de trei. Aceste trifoiuri cu patru foi, precum alte rarități, sunt considerate norocoase. Trifoiul poate avea și cinci, șase sau chiar mai multe foliole, dar aceste cazuri sunt și mai rare. Recordul mondial, conform Guinness, este 18."

Some Spring moments, some moments of joy/ Unele momente de primăvară, unele momente de bucurie.

Spring moments... cheerfulness in the Spring light!

Spring, mix of shady or bright skies... 
sunrise, sunset, blossoms, new buds... 
and green all over to cover the daily grey routine...
To all of you: A Happy First Day of May! Happy May!


Puiu M in April's warm light. Joyful play at sunrise.

...."What made me behave that way?
Using words I never say?
I can only think it must be love
Oh anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day
Someone tell me how I feel
It's silly wrong, but vivid right"...


New buds and blooms of magnolia, pink roses, white "Bellis perennis" blooms in golden light of April's sunset (At Easter in my sister's yard). "Bellis perennis is a common European species of daisy, of the Asteraceae family, often considered the archetypal species of that name. Many related plants also share the name "daisy", so to distinguish this species from other daisies it is sometimes qualified as common daisy, lawn daisy or English daisy.   Bellis perennis is native to western, central and northern Europe, but widely naturalised in most temperate regions including the Americas and Australasia." More to read on Wiki

Sursa/Source: time.com; "International Labour Day and Google is marking the event with a new Doodle"...
Sursa/source: time.com 
"The holiday has its origins in the 19th century labor movement... 
(...) many countries around the world will be taking a public holiday Friday to celebrate the International Labour Day, and Google is marking the event with a new Doodle... (...)
The Google Doodle honors the Labor Day origins with graphics showing traditional manual labor tools such as a wrench and tape measure.

"The date was chosen for International Workers' Day by the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair, which occurred in Chicago on 4 May 1886..." 
(...) "In Romania, 1 May, known as the International Labour Day (Ziua internațională a muncii), the International Workers' Day (Ziua internațională a oamenilor muncii), or simply 1/First of May (1/Întâi Mai), is an official public holiday. During the communist regime, like in all former Eastern Bloc countries, the day was marked by large state-organized parades in most towns and cities, to which many workers were de facto required to participate. After the Romanian Revolution of 1989, 1 May continues to be an official public holiday, but without any state organised events or parades. Most people celebrate together with friends and family, organising picnics and barbecues. It is also the first day of the year when people, especially those from the southeastern part of the country including the capital Bucharest, go to spend the day in one of the Romanian Black Sea resorts."

"This is the sound of one voice
One spirit, one voice
The sound of one who makes a choice
This is the sound of one voice

This is the sound of voices two
The sound of me singing with you
Helping each other to make it through
This is the sound of voices two

This is the sound of voices three
Singing together in harmony
Surrendering to the mystery
This is the sound of voices three

This is the sound of all of us
Singing with love and the will to trust
Leave the rest behind it will turn to dust
This is the sound of all of us..."
