One picture or more... From time to time.(8) Repetitive. Early in spring. Repetitiv. De timpuriu. Primăvara.

Early in Spring. We go through another season in rush... Once again, the trees receive new clothes!

Repetitiv. Primăvara devreme.

Primăvara privită de la geam. Primăvara captivă în gânduri. Ecoul pașilor grăbiți se pierde în trafic. Trăim intens sau intensitatea trăirilor respiră în fiecare cută a frunții?
Primăvara privită de la geam pare a fi statică. Din  când în când, o ramură se leagană... Arborii primesc haine noi. Incă o dată, încă un anotimp.
De la geam, primăvara pare captivă. In gânduri, trăim intens. Incă un anotimp prin care trecem grăbiți, pierzându-ne în traficul cotidian...
Incă o dată, arborii primesc haine noi!

Repetitive. Early in spring.

The Spring watched from the window. Spring is captive in thoughts. The echo, of the hurried footsteps, is lost in traffic. Do we live intensely or the intensity of feelings breathe in every wrinkle of the forehead?
The Spring seen from window it seems to be static. Occasionally, a branch swings... The trees receive new clothes. Once again, another season.
From window, spring seems to be captive. In thoughts, we live intensely... We go through another season in rush and we are losing ourselves in everyday traffic...
Once again, the trees receive new clothes!

"Trăim în umbra copacilor.
Ramurile nu mai bat în geam de mult.
Liniștea s-a lăsat tăcută peste toate
cele spuse, ascunse și rămase
fără noimă, în stinghere colțuri de abis hoinar.

"Nu te forța să pricepi cuvintele
golite de înțelesuri, eresuri".
Trăirile pe muchie de cuțit
pot rătăci în voie, necuprinse de panică
că ar fi zvârlite la întâmplare în tumultul cotidian.

Greutatea sufletului vine (și) din închipuirile
minții, și din fantasmele pornite, efemere
să cutreiere nestingherite prin tot
hazardul lunar, apatic și formal
sub cerul tot mai concret, crepuscular.

Trăim în umbra copacilor,
rătăcitori printre emoții istovite,
printre gânduri pierdute, idei risipite,
din vorbe nerostite în tot acest vacarm
al pădurii, infinit, ivite în abstract."

Repetitiv în abstract. De/By A.T.
"We live in the shadow of the trees, wandering through weary emotions, Lost among  thoughts,  scattered ideas, from words unspoken in all this uproar of the forest, infinite, cropped up in the abstract. "  Repetitive in abstract. Imperfect translation.

From Did You Know Category:

From around the web/media, this week:

A total solar eclipse swept across the vast Indonesian archipelago on Wednesday, march, 8-9.
I've watched the show on internet via Live from Indonesia. Courtesy: The robotic telescope Slooh.

"The moon passes between Earth and the sun every month, but a total solar eclipse happens only when the three celestial bodies are perfectly aligned. And this particular eclipse is even more special: It’s happening while the moon is at its closest point to Earth—called perigee—making the moon appear larger in the sky, as a “supermoon.”

"Thousands of Indonesians witnessed a rare celestial event on Tuesday night: a total eclipse of the sun.
The moon passes between Earth and the sun every month, but a total solar eclipse happens only when the three celestial bodies are perfectly aligned. And this particular eclipse was even more spectacular, because it occurred while the moon was at its closest point to Earth, appearing as a large “supermoon” to those on terra firma."

of different varieties of orchids

"Orchidaceae is a diverse and widespread family of flowering plants, with blooms that are often colourful and often fragrant, commonly known as the orchid family. Along with the Asteraceae, they are one of the two largest families of flowering plants. Orchidaceae has about 27,800 currently accepted species, distributed in about 880 genera. The determination of which family is larger is still under debate, because verified data on the members of such enormous families are continually in flux. Regardless, the number of orchid species nearly equals the number of bony fishes and is more than twice the number of bird species, and about four times the number of mammal species. The family also encompasses about 6–11% of all seed plants.The largest genera are Bulbophyllum (2,000 species), Epidendrum (1,500 species), Dendrobium (1,400 species) and Pleurothallis (1,000 species).

The family also includes Vanilla (the genus of the vanilla plant), Orchis (type genus), and many commonly cultivated plants such as Phalaenopsis and Cattleya. Moreover, since the introduction of tropical species into cultivation in the 19th century, horticulturists have produced more than 100,000 hybrids and cultivars." 
Phalaenopsis cultivar"Phalaenopsis /ˌfælᵻˈnɒpsɪs/ Blume (1825), known as moth orchids, abbreviated Phal in the horticultural trade, is an orchid genus of approximately 60 species. Phalaenopsis is one of the most popular orchids in the trade, through the development of many artificial hybrids. It is native to southern China, the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia (Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc.), New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, and Queensland." "The generic name from Greek means φαλαινα "Phalaen[a]-like" and is probably a reference to the genus Phalaena, the name given by Carl Linnaeus to a group of large moths; the flowers of some species supposedly resemble moths in flight. For this reason, the species are sometimes called moth orchids."

Phalaenopsis amabilis, commonly known as the moth orchid is a species of orchid.
Taxonomy and nomenclature
It was first discovered on a small island off the east coast of New Guinea by the botanist Georg Eberhard Rumphius in 1653; however, he named it Angraecum album majus[verification needed]. It remained undiscovered until 1825 when Karl Ludwig Blume discovered the same species and gave it the name it is known by presently. This species is usually found in the eastern to southeastern regions of Asia. Plants in this genus are typically widespread in the areas of eastern Asia, such as China and Indonesia.
Phalaenopsis amabilis (Indonesian: anggrek bulan meaning "moon orchid") is one of the three national flowers in Indonesia, the other two being the sambac jasmine and padma raksasa. Officially recognized as national "flower of charm" (Indonesian: puspa pesona) in Presidential Decree No. 4 in 1993,
In China, the orchid stood for refinement, friendship, perfection, numerous progeny, all things feminine, noble, and elegant."
