Timeless (41) From time to time. Spring in May. Perspectives.

Platan (Platanus). Platanus tree in early Spring.
Motto:
"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."
Quote by George Bernard Shaw



Trees in bloom.
*In Spring, it is all about perspectives; Spring is the chance to daydreaming with open eyes; Spring is like 'the reverie of soul' who wants to nourish with the beauty of the fresh green buds sprung on the branches, the beauty of the new leaves and the fresh delicate blooms in late March or early April and, not at last, the beauty of those bright various colors of blossoms appearing, all over, in May. Anyway, in Spring, it is all about love for life.

Spring in march.With every Springtime, we come to realise that all that it matters, it is the fact to be willing and to be capable to have a deep breathing in the rythm of nature knowing that every second is not like any other.  A calmy 'respiro', a calmy breathing... And to be always aware and to be able to understand that what we can see and we are observing today, it will be different tomorrow.
Perspectives.

Cherry Blossoms.Time is precious. Because 'life is short'; this it is what it's mentioned so often, in so many texts and articles on the theme of inspirational and positive quotes. The reality, indeed, is that the health can diminish with every single second passed by.
Also, what it is really important (and it can never disappear from our own mind), what it is truly important in order to be healthy, it is essentially that we must to remember and try to be happy and viceversa. Till now, (from philosophical/cognitive theories) I have'nt found a complete definition of being happy.
Spring in march.But, all I know is that in order of being healthy... for sure it means to try to be happy, in your own way.

Perspective. Perspectives.Also, all I know, it is that Spring is a lovely season and it is about positivity, about optimism, about serenity of soul when facing hardships, adversity and troubles. Like many, despite sorrows, regrets and different daily troubles, somehow, I still can enjoy life the way it is.

Perspective. Perspectives.A part of what I enjoy as a recreational hobby, it is of taking shots in the nature. As an amateur photographer, taking a picture, I imagine like anybody else, that 'I can stop the time', in a fragile frame, this way. In a corner of my mind, with a thought, I can also try to retain a 'fugitive' moment. That's the memory, itself. And with a click of a photo camera it is possible of capturing different instants. In a flash, that's the essence of photography.
What's really interesting, it is that I can share the memory of the instant captured. And that's the photography: it is all about moment. Sharing the instant captured.*

                                  Inspirational Quotes.

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. "
"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest."
"Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart."
"It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop."
 Quotes by Confucius

"Confucius (/kənˈfjuːʃəs/; September 28, 551 BC – 479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history.
The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity. His followers competed successfully with many other schools during the Hundred Schools of Thought era only to be suppressed in favor of the Legalists during the Qin Dynasty. Following the victory of Han over Chu after the collapse of Qin, Confucius's thoughts received official sanction and were further developed into a system known in the West as Confucianism."
Platanus trees. " Platanus orientalis, or oriental plane, is a large, deciduous tree of the Platanaceae family, growing to 30 m (98 ft) or more, and known for its longevity and spreading crown. Etymology: The species name means 'eastern'. (In comparison, the 'western' plane (or American Sycamore) is named Platanus occidentalis) The eastern plane's original distribution was eastward from the Balkans. The tree was called platane in ancient Greek history and literature and by related names in continental Europe. Equally well known in Asia and from Anatolia (modern Turkey) to India and usually called chinar or chenar. In the Kashmir Valley region, the native Kashmiri word for the tree is boonyi. Range[edit] The native range is Eurasia from the Balkans to at least as far east as Iran. Some accounts extend its native range to Iberia in the west, and to the Himalayas in the east. As it has been known in cultivation from early times in much of this region it can be difficult to determine if it is truly indigenous in peripheral areas."

Gingo Biloba Tree in early Spring. "Ginkgo biloba, commonly known as ginkgo or gingko (both pronounced /ˈɡɪŋkoʊ/), also known as the ginkgo tree or the maidenhair tree, is the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct. It is found in fossils dating back 270 million years. Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated and was introduced early to human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food. The genus name Ginkgo is regarded as a misspelling of the Japanese gin kyo, "silver apricot".

În primăvară, este vorba despre perspective; Primăvara este șansa de a visa cu ochii deschiși; Primăvara este ca o "reverie a sufletului" care vrea să se hrănească cu frumusețea mugurilor de un verde proaspăt și care au apărut pe ramurile copacilor, frumusețea frunzelor noi și a inflorescențele delicate de la sfârșitul lunii martie sau începutul lunii aprilie și, nu în ultimul rând, frumusețea acele culori strălucitoare de flori care apar, peste tot, în luna mai. Oricum, în primăvară, este vorba de dragostea pentru viață. Cu fiecare primăvară, ajungem să înțelegem că tot ceea ce contează este faptul de a fi dispuși și de a fi capabili să respirăm în ritmul naturii știind că fiecare secundă nu este ca oricare alta. O respirație calmă, o respirație liniștită... Și pentru a fi mereu conștienți și a putea înțelege că ceea ce vedem și observăm astăzi, va fi diferit mâine. 
Perspective.
Timpul este prețios. Deoarece "viața este scurtă"; Aceasta este ceea ce este menționat atât de des, în atât de multe texte și articole pe tema citatelor inspiraționale și pozitive. Realitatea, într-adevăr, este că sănătatea se poate diminua cu fiecare secundă trecută.
De asemenea, ceea ce este cu adevărat important (și nu poate disparea niciodată din propria noastră minte), ceea ce este cu adevărat important pentru a fi sănătoși, este esențial că trebuie să ne amintim și să încercăm să fim fericiți și viceversa. Până acum (din teoriile filosofice / cognitive) nu am găsit o definiție completă a fericirii. 
O parte din ceea ce îmi place, ca un hobby recreațional, este de a face fotografii în natură. În calitate de fotograf amator, cu fiecare fotografie, îmi imaginez ca oricine altcineva că, "pot opri timpul", într-un cadru fragil, în acest fel. Într-un colț al minții mele, cu un gând, pot încerca, de asemenea, să păstrez un moment "fugar". Asta e memoria, în sine. Și cu un clic pe o cameră foto este posibil să capturăm diferite momente. Într-o clipă, asta e esența fotografiei.
Ce este cu adevărat interesant, este că pot împărtăși memoria momentului capturat. Și asta este fotografia: este vorba despre moment. Împărtășirea momentului capturat. *

*****
Motto: 
"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."**
