Celebrare. Celebration in 2016.

Last year at the celebration of two years of blogging I've said this:
" my favorite essay is not already written. It will appear, for sure, when I'll find a good subject, a theme or a good photo shot, an interesting idea or who knows? Inspiration... creativity... something in between!"
Three years of blogging!! And I've made a short list with my favourites posts from 2013 to 2015.
But now... I'm still thinking... I'm still looking of... a good subject, a good theme, a good photo capture... and a very interesting idea. 
Who knows...
All that matters, it is that I'm still searching... and I'm hoping to have results, best results...

 Till then I'll look into the list of the posts of 2015 and I'll make a review with those of which I can consider them to be somehow special to my soul.

First of all, last year I've created a serie called "Timeless", a serie called "Soul journeys through memories.  Călătorii de suflet." and a serie named "One picture or more... From time to time."
And of course I'll continue with these ones and perhaps I'll add more posts on various subjects. Time will decide...
And now, coming back to the post made a year ago, I'll say again: 
"if I could choose one or two essays or even five for an ideal list, then... 
Let's see... it could it be like the list below":
(see the list below)

1. From the category "Timeless"

A post about an event, so popular, called "Night of Museums".

"Friend is the one who is holding your hand, but actually, he is touching your heart!"

"I hope you'll not make a funny face,
When I'll show you a joyful place...
Of modern pieces of arts,

of many inner and hidden thoughts,
of so strange and, also, pretty views of lives
brought to surface and presented in bright lights! 

Lots of items, things, details and aspects...

from the enlightened and sunny skillful minds,
The art seen as a "life parade", in these nights,
who are meant to open the people's hearts....
So, I hope you'll not make a funny face,
When I'll show you this joyful place..."

2. From the category of "Soul journeys through memories.  Călătorii de suflet.": 

The Sculptural Ensemble of Constantin Brâncuși at Târgu Jiu is an homage to the Romanian heroes of the First World War. The ensemble comprises three sculptures: the Table of Silence, the Gate of the Kiss and the The Infinity Column, on an axis 1,300 m (4,250 ft) long, oriented west to east. The Ensemble is considered to be one of the great works of 20th century outdoor sculpture. ((The Ensemble had been inaugurated on 27 October 1938.))

A post with photo instants with wonderful places from my last year's travels. 
I'll write, for sure, about them this year in ample posts.
"Târgoviște (alternative spelling: Tîrgoviște; Romanian pronunciation: [tɨr.ˈɡo.viʃ.te]) is a city in Romania, being the county seat of the Dâmbovița County. It is situated on the right bank of the Ialomiţa River. At the 2011 census Târgoviște had a population of 73,964,[1] making it the 26th largest city in Romania.

Am văzut…

"I saw… That  beauty  in a corner of the heaven was; there it was.  Amazed I've looked at the color and I felt right then  all the heat that seemed to clearly emanate.  I hurried to catch with my thought, the ambient. My heart was filled with the floating smell  of those frail and so chic blooms...   around me aligned so well..."  ...  I saw… And in the wonder pictured, I remained with no response. I've seen or not? All the beauty that  in a corner of the heaven was;  And it seemed it was..."  Fragment.  A tentative of translation of the lyrics above.
 Frumusețea aninată’n  colț de rai ce acol’ era.
Am privit uimit culoarea și am simțit,
Apoi, căldura ce părea a emana.
M-am grăbit să prind cu gândul, ambientul.
 Cordu-mi se umplea de mireasma plutitoare
A firavelor cochete înșirate împrejur…
M-am grăbit să sorb cu văzul, să adulmec
rând pe rând, mlădioasele , -ncoronate…
 Aliniate ori împrăștiate-n câte-un rond ocol,
Tanțose, de a lor alură de crăiese îmbujorate
Răsfirate-n zeci de tufe… făr’ de soț, parol…
Am văzut…
Și-n minunea înfățisată am rămas făr’ de răspuns.

Am văzut ori ba?
“Frumusețea aninată’n  colț de rai ce acol’ era…”

"I saw… 
That  beauty  in a corner of the heaven was; there it was...  
Amazed I've looked at the color and I felt right then  
all the heat that seemed to clearly emanate.  
I hurried to catch with my thought, the ambient. 
My heart was filled with the floating smell  
from those frail and so chic blooms...   
Around me aligned so well..." 
 (...)  I saw… 
And in the wonder imagined, 
I remained with no response. 
Have I seen... or not? 
All the beauty that  in a corner of the heaven was; 
And it seemed it was..."

Unele momente de primăvară, unele momente de bucurie.

"Serendipity * means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise". It was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip. The princes, he told his correspondent, were “always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of”. Wikipedia

5.  From the category "A mix of thoughts":

"Etymology" The first noted use of "serendipity" (meaning pleasant surprise) in the English language was by Horace Walpole (1717–1797). In a letter to Horace Mann (dated 28 January 1754) he said he formed it from the Persian fairy tale The Three Princes of Serendip, whose heroes "were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of". The name stems from Serendip, an old name for Sri Lanka (aka Ceylon), from Tamil Ceralamdivu, Sanskrit Simhaladvipa and Arabic Sarandīp (سرندیپ). Parts of Sri Lanka were under the rule of Tamil kings for extended periods of time in history. Kings of Kerala, India (Cheranadu) were called Ceran Kings and divu, tivu or dheep means island, the island belonging to the Chera King was called Cherandeep, hence Sarandib by Arab traders.  The structure of serendipity Serendipity is not just a matter of a random event, nor can it be taken simply as a synonym for "a happy accident" (Ferguson, 1999; Khan, 1999), "finding out things without being searching for them" (Austin, 2003), or "a pleasant surprise" (Tolson, 2004) ..
