"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..."

"Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in each of the four canonical Gospels."

"In Romania and Moldova, Palm Sunday is known as Duminica Floriilor or simply Florii, translating Flowers' Sunday." 
"Duminica Floriilor (sau Florii) este o sărbătoare creștină fără dată exactă, comemorată întotdeauna în ultima duminică dinaintea Paștelui."


"Plantele din genul salix sunt cunoscute în România sub numele generic de salcie, respectiv răchită. Numele popular de "salcie" provine în limba română din latinescul salix.
"Willows are dioecious, with male and female flowers appearing as catkins on different plants; the catkins are produced early in the spring, often before the leaves, or as the new leaves open."
Willows in Spring of march, 2014.
Salix L. (Salcia), este un gen de plante din familia Salicaceae, cuprinzând arbori, arbuști sau subarbuști cu lujeri elastici și frunze căzătoare."
"Willows, sallows, and osiers form the genus Salix, around 400 species of deciduous trees and shrubs, found primarily on moist soils in cold and temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Most species are known as willow, but some narrow-leaved shrub species are called osier, and some broader-leaved species are referred to as sallow (from Old English sealh, related to the Latin word salix, willow). 


"The age of cathedrals has come
The world has entered
A new millennium
Man wanted to reach the stars
To write his story
In glass and in stone

Stone after stone, day after day
From century to century with love
He saw the towers rise
That he had built with his hands

The poets and the troubadours
Sang songs of love
That promised the human race
Better days to come"...*

Event: April. Eveniment. Aprilie

The fascinating experience of seeing amazing "face" of the "blood moon"- Total lunar eclipse... the celestial event!
"A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes within Earth's umbra (shadow). As the eclipse begins, Earth's shadow first darkens the Moon slightly. Then, the shadow begins to "cover" part of the Moon, turning it a dark red-brown color (typically - the color can vary based on atmospheric conditions). The Moon appears to be reddish because of Rayleigh scattering (the same effect that causes sunsets to appear reddish) and the refraction of that light by Earth's atmosphere into its umbra." click and read for more info                     

                              "THE TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE OF APRIL 2015"
                                                         via Slooh Observatory


Excerpts:
"On April 4, lucky skywatchers can enjoy a total eclipse of the Moon. Visible across the Pacific and parts of North and South America, this is the first of two total lunar eclipses in 2015. Observers in the eastern half of Australia and all of New Zealand and Hawaii can see the entire eclipse. In western North America, the total eclipse will be visible in the pre-dawn sky but the Moon will set before the eclipse ends. Observers in eastern North America and most of South America will see the Moon set before the eclipse reaches totality. Join Slooh's Bob Berman and Will Gater as they discuss and marvel over live feeds of the lunar eclipse live on April 4 from multiple sites across the world."

""Don't forget to look skyward in the early hours of Saturday morning (April 4), to catch a glimpse of the shortest total lunar eclipse of the century.

April 2015 lunar eclipse*
                  "A total lunar eclipse will take place on 4 April 2015. It is the former of two total lunar eclipses in 2015, and the third in a tetrad (four total lunar eclipses in series). Other eclipses in the tetrad are those of April 15, 2014, October 8, 2014, and September 28, 2015.

                  Totality will last only 4 minutes and 43 seconds, making it the shortest lunar totality in almost five centuries since 17 October 1529 (which lasted 1 minute and 42 seconds). The next very short lunar totality will be 2 minutes and 36 seconds on 11 September 2155. This is the sixth total lunar eclipse out of nine with totality under 5 minutes in a five millennium period between 2,000 BC and 3,000 AD." excerpts from Wikipedia: April 2015 lunar eclipse*

Timeless (6) When Spring comes. Când vine vorba de primăvară.

New blooms and the first green leaves on branches of of white cherry plum (Corcodușul - Prunus cerasifera, sinonim P. divaricata) in Springtime of March, 26, 2015.


Springtime; March, 26, 2015.




Clipa aceea*
"Câteva cuvinte, ţi-ai spus,
doar câteva cuvinte, şi ai creat
o întreagă istorie, al cărei prezent
este deja ieri, aşa cum mâine
va fi doar trecutul aceluia 
ce-l va lăsa în urmă, pierdut
pentru totdeauna...
Doar un cuvânt, îţi spui,
doar un cuvânt, şi te-apropii
în drumul tău de nebănuitul pas
spre necunoscut, fără să te sperii
de gândul acela care eşti şi nu eşti
tu, de clipa aceea în care poţi să fii
şi eşti..." 
Poezie/Poem de/by: Elena Liliana Popescu 


A creative Spring sight of sky in deep blue.

First quarter of the moon. Primul patrar. "Primul Pătrar - când Luna este la o elongatie (depărtare) de 90° est, față de Soare;  atunci vedem doar jumătate din discul lunar iluminat (jumatatea din dreapta)."http://www.space.com/ "Weather permitting, you can see this for yourself this week because the first quarter falls on Friday (March 27) at 3:43 a.m. EDT (0743 GMT)."

A mix of new buds, fresh leaves and blossoms of cherry plum (Corcodușul (Prunus cerasifera, sinonim P. divaricata), Skies of march with the first quarter of the moon... Creative way to  "start to reinvent the soon coming days of Spring"...

Light hits the moon obliquely, casting its surface relief into high contrast when the Earth's natural satellite is at its first quarter. Weather permitting, you can see this for yourself this week because the first quarter falls on Friday (March 27) at 3:43 a.m. EDT (0743 GMT)." Excerpt; Read for more info on http://www.space.com/28935-first-quarter-moon-skywatching.html
