One picture or more. From time to time (21) An 'architectonic view'. A walk in Spring. (I) O viziune arhitectonică în primăvară.

Motto: "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."
"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light."
"You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation."
Plato
"The University of Bucharest (Romanian: Universitatea din București), commonly known after its abbreviation UB in Romania, is a public university founded in 1864 by decree of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza to convert the former Saint Sava Academy into the current University of Bucharest, making it the second oldest modern university in Romania.(...) In 1694 Constantin Brâncoveanu, ruler of Wallachia, had founded the Princely Academy of Saint Sava in Bucharest with lectures delivered in Greek. In 1776, Alexander Ypsilantis, ruler of Wallachia, reformed the curriculum of the Saint Sava Academy, where courses of French, Italian and Latin were now taught. In 1859, the Faculty of Law was created. In 1857, Carol Davila created the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy. In 1857, the foundation stone of the University Palace in Bucharest was laid.  The original 1857 project of the University main building, by Alexandru Orăscu On July 4/16 1864 Prince Alexander John Cuza created the University of Bucharest, bringing together the Faculties of Law, Sciences and Letters as one single body. In the following years, new faculties were created: 1884 – the Faculty of Theology; 1906 – the Institute of Geology; 1913 – the Academic Institute for Electrotechnology; 1921 – the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine; 1923 – the Faculty of Pharmacy, 1924 – the Mina Minovici Institute of Forensic Medicine."

"Palatul Universității este o construcție aflată în Piața Universității din București, în perimetrul descris de străzile Regina Elisabeta, Academiei, Edgar Quinet, Nicolae Bălcescu, înaltă de 6 etaje, construită în stil neoclasic pe fostul amplasament al Mănăstirii Sfântul Sava. Construirea viitorului sediu al celei mai mari universități din România, Universitatea București, a început în data de 10 octombrie 1857, după planurile arhitectului Alexandru Orăscu, pe locul fostului colegiu Sfântu Sava, și a fost finalizată la 14 decembrie 1869. Corpurile laterale ale palatului au fost ridicate mai târziu, între anii 1912-1926, după planurile arhitectului Nicolae Ghica-Budești. Palatul Universităţii a devenit post 1989 o scenă a manifestaţiilor de protest Împodobirea exterioară a palatului a fost realizată de către Karl Storck împreună cu asistentul său, Waibel, și un elev de-al său, Paul Focșeneanu."

Let's think of something that can happened to all of us. We live with so much stress in these days. 
Let's think to the fact that there it could be a day, in our life, when everything around us appears of going in such so wrong way. And it seems that everything around us, it will be insanely all wrong, right from the first second. One day, we can wake up with a feeling of fear and suddenly the panic appears, just in time to make all to look absolutely grotesque.
Instantly, everything around us, it turns to be an upside-down situation.  
But, what we can do when not one, but three emergency medical issues can occured in the same time in our family, for instance? 
Whatever we want to think in order to solve this, it turns to be a stressful situation, in a matter of time.  And we become highly worried. What we can do, to try to think clearly? ... 
To try to solve the first appeared situation?... or maybe the two of them, or all of them, in the same time?... It is that possible? Only, if that could depend on you... and probably, if you are a master in stress management or if you have the perfect answers already in your mind to say or do this or that...
  Actually is not that easy to do something to solve or to answer, correctly, instantly. 
 But, it turns that there is always a solving way, but it depends on something far, far away from our ability, energy or pure material willingness of doing something. 
It all depends on divinity and the divine way of solving the dilemma. 
Being in such a situation recently, I saw that there is light and positivity, a hope right  there, where somehow, everything, at first look, it seems to go wrong till to one point. What it remains to be done after that? Well, it depends on various factors... it's about the chance of "building" a healthy communication between involved people, having patience, implication and the will to find some positive results, as much as it is possible. 
For a while for every 'life turbulence', we can find a way of solving the issue. Knowing that it is not always the most 'faultless' answer.... It depends on us to be positive and ready for action, even when we are exhausted, when, let's say, the feeling of anxiety is right around the corner.
In the end, only God knows what will happen, "Whatever Will Be, Will Be "... just like in the old lyrics of the very known song...

In the old center. The Bourse Palace.  "Palatul Bursei" is a building in Bucharest, built between 1906 and 1912, according to the plans of the architect Ştefan Burcuş. In 1955 became the headquarters of State Central Library/ The National Library of Romania. In 2008 the building was returned to the owner of the law, Commerce and Industry of Bucharest. The one who first questioned the need to build a headquarters for the Bucharest Chamber of Commerce and Industry in a central area was King Carol I in 1904 at the suggestion of George G. Assan. The architect selected by the contest was Ştefan Burcuş, and the resistance structure was designed by the engineer Gogu Constantinescu, the bricks being able to withstand a load of 150 kg / cm2 and the floors to be made of reinforced concrete. The style is the neo-classical French with pilasters and corinthian columns. " Source Wikipedia

Till then, while I was speaking of the "corner" (from the figure of speech " just right around the corner"), above, I remembered of some beautiful aspects captured in this lovely Springtime. The city has such beautiful buildings, statues, places and I've chosen to present you some of them in three variations: color, sepia and b&w. 
In the old center. Stil artistic: Eclectic de factură academică, neoclasic Data începerii construcției: 1906 Data finalizării: 1912 "Palatul Bursei este o clădire din București, construită între anii 1906-1912, după planurile arhitectului Ștefan Burcuș. Începând cu anul 1955 a devenit sediul Bibliotecii Centrale de Stat Biblioteca Națională a României. În 2008 clădirea a fost retrocedată proprietarului de drept, Camera de Comerț și Industrie a Municipiului București. Cel care a adus în discuție pentru prima data problema necesității construirii unui sediu pentru Camera de Comerț și Industrie a Municipiului București într-o zona centrală a fost regele Carol I în 1904, la sugestia lui George G. Assan. Arhitectul ales prin concurs a fost Ștefan Burcuș, iar structura de rezistență a fost proiectată de inginerul Gogu Constantinescu, cărămizile putând suporta o sarcină de 150 kg/cm2 iar planșeele urmând a fi realizate din beton armat. Stilul este cel neoclasic francez, cu pilaștri și coloane în stil corintic." Sursa Wikipedia
As always, I hope you to enjoy the walk and the aspects captured through my lens. And finally I hope you to enjoy the edited aspects according with my own preferences. In this series, I'll show you the buildings, places or the statues from the center of the city seen as in an applied old, antiquate view. A different perspective of the same architecturale elements, if you want. 
Best regards!

From Did You Know Category:
About Plato.
"Plato(/ˈpleɪtoʊ/;[a] Greek: Πλάτων[a] Plátōn, pronounced [plá.tɔːn] in Classical Attic; 428/427 or 424/423[b] – 348/347 BCE) was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. He is widely considered the most pivotal figure in the development of philosophy, especially the Western tradition. Unlike nearly all of his philosophical contemporaries, Plato's entire work is believed to have survived intact for over 2,400 years. Others believe that the oldest extant manuscript dates to circa. A.D. 895, 1100 years after Plato's death. This makes it difficult to know exactly what Plato wrote. 
Along with his teacher, Socrates, and his most famous student, Aristotle, Plato laid the very foundations of Western philosophy and science. Alfred North Whitehead once noted: "the safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato." In addition to being a foundational figure for Western science, philosophy, and mathematics, Plato has also often been cited as one of the founders of Western religion and spirituality. Plato's influence on Christianity is often thought to be mediated by his major influence on Saint Augustine of Hippo, one of the most important philosophers and theologians in the foundation of the Western thought. In the 19th century the philosopher Nietzsche criticized Christianity by saying it's "Platonism for the people". Numenius of Apamea viewed this differently, he called Plato the Hellenic Moses. This would justify the superiority of Christianity over Hellenism because Moses predates Plato - thus the original source of this wisdom is the root of Christianity and not Hellenistic culture.
Plato was the innovator of the written dialogue and dialectic forms in philosophy. Plato appears to have been the founder of Western political philosophy, with his Republic, and Laws among other dialogues, providing some of the earliest extant treatments of political questions from a philosophical perspective. Plato's own most decisive philosophical influences are usually thought to have been Socrates, Parmenides, Heraclitus and Pythagoras, although few of his predecessors' works remain extant and much of what we know about these figures today derives from Plato himself.

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy describes Plato as "...one of the most dazzling writers in the Western literary tradition and one of the most penetrating, wide-ranging, and influential authors in the history of philosophy".

From social e-media: 
An article with very interesting points of view over anxiety:
*Here, there are some excerpts; (for the whole text click the link above.)

..."It helps us when you remain outwardly calm. We need stability when we are freaking out. Your peaceful demeanor is reassuring.
8. Our hypervigilance can cause us to get tired quickly. We may need more downtime and rest than other people.
9. Our anxiety does not make us stupid or childish. Even during an anxious moment, talking down to us does not help. It’s irritating and condescending.
10. We love it when you show us breathing exercises, grounding techniques, or new ways of thinking that combat anxiety. Whether they work for us or not, this gesture shows us that you’re on our team.
11. Our tendency to overthink can be a blessing and a curse.
12. We are okay with the fact that you can’t understand our anxiety. We don’t understand it either.
13. We understand that anxiety isn’t logical. However, it’s a physical, medically based problem. It doesn’t respond to facts. We can’t think it away, as much as we wish we could.
14. We want you to take good care of yourself. We need you to be at your best.
15. We appreciate your patience. We know it’s not easy.
16. Logically, we know we won’t die from a panic attack. In the moment, however, it feels like we definitely will. Having a panic attack is a painful and terrifying experience. It feels like the end of the world.

17. With self-care, determination, and hard work, we are capable of anything."

"In April 1836, the Societatea Filarmonica — a cultural society founded by Ion Heliade Rădulescu and Ion Câmpineanu — bought the Câmpinencii Inn to build a National Theatre on the site, and began to collect money and materials for this purpose. In 1840, Obşteasca Adunare (the legislative branch established under the terms of the Imperial Russian-approved Organic Statute) proposed to Alexandru II Ghica, the Prince of Wallachia, a project to build a National Theatre with state support. The request was approved on June 4, 1840. Prince Gheorghe Bibescu adopted the idea of founding the theatre and chose a new location, on the spot of the former Filaret Inn. There were several reasons to favor this locations: it was centrally located, right in the middle of Podul Mogoşoaiei (today's Calea Victoriei); the earthquake of 1838 had damaged the inn beyond repair, and it needed to be torn down."

"The current National Theatre is located about half a kilometre away from the old site, just south of the Hotel Intercontinental at Piaţa Universităţii (University Square), and has been in use since 1973. The new edifice reconstructed from 2010 to 2014, was inaugurated to the end of the year 2014, and with 7 halls, as the Grand Hall (Sala Mare) with 900 seats, is the bigest and the latest theater edifice of Europe."

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."**

    2. Thank you Alexa for the always interesting tour....and uplifting posters. The pictures are beautiful. The NFL about people who have panic attacks was good too. I know a couple people who suffer with them.
