Timeless (46) From time to time. "In the harmony": "December was a good month, though..." "And a New Year's Resolution: Bravery".

Motto:"Existence itself, as light’s sleep, offers evidence of its own discontinuity, that is, of time. In this respect one can consider existence as a quanta of time."
"Insăşi existenţa, ca somn al luminii, face evidentă discontinuitatea acesteia şi deci a timpului. In acest sens putem să socotim existenţa ca pe o cuantă de timp." 
Din eseul: "Timpul ca lumină" din volumul "Amintiri din prezent". 1985, Nichita Stănescu/
The essay "Time as light" from the volume "Amintiri din prezent". 1985; Nichita Stănescu
December was a good month, though... there was no snow, no white Christmas,...  but lots of lights all over... and I had some very nice time at the theater... A lovely play: "Carousel" directed by A. Serban from Ferenc Molnár's 1909 play Liliom. 

- Some New Year's Resolutions?!?...
Well...New coffee mug, a gift from my sister... and some funny souvenirs...
- "I do not regret the previous year!"... "No, sir"... It brought us lots of pain, sorrow and confusion... I choose to cherish and to select the benefits of 2017 and the precious and cheerful moments shared with my family and friends of soul. No matter what, I truly believe, that the every second of our existence can bring something to be learned. It's hard for sure in so many ways, aspects, but I'm still confident...
- What about a new resolution?... Last year, I thought at the meaning of the word: trust. "In the social sciences, the subtleties of trust are a subject of ongoing research. In sociology and psychology the degree to which one party trusts another is a measure of belief in the honesty, fairness, or benevolence of another party. The term "confidence" is more appropriate for a belief in the competence of the other party. A failure in trust may be forgiven more easily if it is interpreted as a failure of competence rather than a lack of benevolence or honesty. In economics, trust is often conceptualized as reliability in transactions. In all cases trust is a heuristic decision rule, allowing the human to deal with complexities that would require unrealistic effort in rational reasoning." I still believe that's a very good resolution to keep on... So, perhaps, this year, I should keep it and add some courage or bravery.
 So, I'm saying to myself: "Be Brave"... "Here I am!"
Nu regret anul trecut! ... "Nu, domnule" ... Ne-a adus multă durere, tristețe și confuzie ... aleg să prețuiesc și să aleg beneficiile anului 2017 și momentele prețioase și vesele cu familia și prietenii sufletului. Indiferent ce, cred cu adevărat, că fiecare secundă a existenței noastre poate aduce ceva de învățat. Este greu, desigur, în atâtea aspecte, dar sunt încă încrezător ...
- Ce zici de o nouă rezoluție? ... Anul trecut m-am gândit la sensul cuvântului: încredere. "În științele sociale, subtilitățile de încredere sunt un subiect al cercetărilor în curs. În sociologie și psihologie gradul în care o parte crede în alta este o măsură de credință în onestitatea, corectitudinea sau bunăvoința unei alte părți. "este mai adecvat pentru o credință în competența celeilalte părți.Un eșec în încredere poate fi iertat mai ușor dacă este interpretat mai degrabă ca un eșec de competență decât o lipsă de bunăvoință sau onestitate În economie, încrederea este adesea conceptualizată ca în toate cazurile, încrederea este o regulă euristică de decizie, permițând oamenilor să se ocupe de complexități care ar necesita un efort nerealist în raționamentul rațional ". Cred încă că este o rezoluție foarte bună pentru a continua ... Deci, poate, anul acesta, ar trebui să o țin și să adaug un curaj sau curaj. Deci, îmi spun: "Fii curajos" ... "Iată-mă!"

To all of you,
Happy New Year! An Nou Fericit!

About Courage* (emotion)
click to read more info on Wikipedia
"Courage(also called bravery or valour) is the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Physical courage is bravery in the face of physical pain, hardship, death or threat of death, while moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, shame, scandal, discouragement, or personal loss.

The classical virtue of fortitude (andreia, fortitudo) is also translated "courage", but includes the aspects of perseverance and patience.

In the Western tradition, notable thoughts on courage have come from philosophers, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, and Kierkegaard; in the Eastern tradition, some thoughts on courage were offered by the Tao Te Ching. More recently, courage has been explored by the discipline of psychology."
excerpts: "Ancient Greece"
The early Greek philosopher Plato (c. 428–348 BCE)[2] set the groundwork for how courage would be viewed to future philosophers(... ) Plato further explains this perseverance as being able to persevere through all emotions, like suffering, pleasure, and fear."
"Ancient Rome"
"In the Roman Empire, courage formed part of the universal virtue of virtus. Roman philosopher and statesman Cicero (106–43 BCE) lists the cardinal virtues does not name them such:

Virtue may be defined as a habit of mind (animi) in harmony with reason and the order of nature. It has four parts: wisdom (prudentiam), justice, courage, temperance. (De Inventione, II, LIII)".

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays."**

  6. Hello, lovely post and what a sweet kitty. The lights are beautiful, lovely displays. It is good to be brave and have courage, live with no regrets. I wish you and yours all the best in 2018, happy New Year! Have a great day and new week!

  7. Gorgeous shots. Wishing you a fabulous year.

  8. Your post is thought-provoking; I like it. I think it is appropriate that you include pictures of your cat - cats are generally very trusting unless you prove otherwise! Happy New Year to you!

  9. Frumoase poze si locuri! Mi-ar fi placut și mie să fie un Crăciun îmbrăcat în alb, în schimb a fost îmbrăcat în soare, dar m-am bucurat de el și așa.

  10. Lovely Christmas images and thoughts for the New Year. I wish you a healthy, happy and brace 2018. And thankyou for visiting my blog last week.

  11. Awesome photos of your celebrations. I agree with you: Learn from our mistakes and rejoice in the wonder regardless. Happy Trusting New Year to you!

  12. What beautiful Christmas time photos you took. I hope you had a very good Christmas and I want to wish you a very Happy New Year Alexa.' I hope you cat is feeling better. One of mine has been sick, but is feeling better now... hugs..Michelle

    1. Hugs, Michelle! Grateful to read your warm lovely thoughts; hope your little furbaby is fine, our cat is pretty well, for now! Have a wonderful New Year, too! Best regards, to you, too!

  13. Wow, the light displays - these are amazing! Many thanks for string these with All Seasons:)

    Never knew what I know now - in rural areas, that is what you miss when you're a icy person like I. After 4 years I finally am getting used to it. We have no lanterns on our street. In the forest it's pitch dark because of the very tall trees. Hubby installed right away some flood lights on the sides of the house, so we could see when coming home at night, that we would park in our own driveway, instead of that of the neighbors!

    Yes, it takes bravery to trust, especially when that trust was broken in childhood:) A belated happy New Year, Alexa, and success with your journey of trust this year! Jesh~

    1. Happy New Year, Jesh! so lovely said: "a journey of trust"... Wonderful!!
      Best regards to you!

  14. Hope my comment got through? Jesh~

  15. Ce scumpic e Puiu M! <3 <3
    Am fost neatenta... si abia acum vad postarea ta. Ma scuz, pentru ca am fost tare "zapacita" de evenimente "cenusii". Subscriu, cu alte cuvinte: desi cu multe "umbre", aleg sa pastrez din 2017 numai amintirile luminoase. :) Si sa fiu pawsitive! :)
    Oh... Mi s-a parut destul de... fad Craciunul fara zapada. Stralucitor e si orasul nostru – mai ales prin centru, iar daca ar fi nins, primaria ar fi aratat ca o casuta din povesti. :) Poate ce de aceea n-a nins: primaria nu poate fi o casuta din povesti... frumoase. :)
    In 13 ianuarie a fost Anul Nou pe rit vechi – si chiar daca n-ar fi fost, iti doresc, cu drag, sa ai un An Nou bun, sa fii sanatoasa si multe bucurii sa ai. Aceleasi urari de bine tuturor celor care iti sunt dragi! Si un pupic pe botic de Puiu. <3
    Multumesc, Alexa.

    1. Multumesc din tot sufletul de ganduri si urari de inceput de an!!! Cu mult drag, Diana, asemenea, sa fie acest an oarecum mai altfel, in bine si cu multa. multa sanatate, cat se poate... <3 Speram ca si puiutul nostru sa fie bine si incercam totul in acest sens.
      Toate cele frumoase pentru suflet si inima sa aveti alaturi de toti cei dragi!
      La multi ani sanatosi, prosperi si cu impliniri! Imbratisari si multumiri mii!

  16. Keeping your child healthy ought to be much of your concern, so
    just be sure you purchase only quality baby care products.
    Parents should make certain that meals they may be serving on their kids are small interval
    and brimming with nutrient. Although botox injections solution was
    helpful (if somewhat ghoulish), there have been two significant disadvantages: 1.
