Timeless (43) From time to time. In the harmony, summertime at sunset... În armonie, timp de vară la apus ... (II)




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."*

About 
"Dâmbovița* (Romanian pronunciation: [ˈdɨmbovit͡sa]  is a river in Romania. It has its sources in the Făgăraș Mountains, on the Curmătura Oticu. The upper reach of the rivers, upstream of the confluence with the Boarcășu River is also known as Izvorul Oticului River or Oticu River.
It passes through Bucharest and flows into the Argeș River 286 kilometres from its source, near Budești, in Călărași County. Dâmbovița County is named after the river.
Name
The name of the Dâmbovița is of Slavic origin, derived from Common Slavic dǫbŭ (дѫбъ), meaning "oak", as it once flowed through the oak forests of the Wallachian Plain.
Dâmbovița in Bucharest
For centuries, Dâmbovița was the main source of drinking water for the city of Bucharest. While there were a few dozen water wells, most of the water in Bucharest was distributed by water-carriers.
Bucharest folklore mentions the waters of Dâmbovița as "sweet", and even at the beginning of the 18th century, Anton Maria del Chiaro considered it "light and clean". However, toward the end of the 18th century, as the population of Bucharest increased, the river ceased to be as clean, and hence the need of the aqueducts. The earliest aqueducts with public fountains (cișmele) were built during the rule of Prince Alexander Ypsilantis.
Many watermills were built on the Dâmbovița, most of them owned by the prince, the monasteries or boyars.
Dâmbovița used to have two tributaries in Bucharest:
Dâmbovicioara, on the right bank, which probably flowed in what is the area where Sființii Apostoli street is located.
Bucureștioara, which rose from a pond located in what is now Grădina Icoanei
Additionally, there was a branch, Gârlița, which formed an island, Ostrovu.
The Dâmbovița often flooded Bucharest, especially the left bank, which was lower. After the great 1775 flood, Ypsilantis ordered a branch canal to be built, in order to prevent, or at least diminish the effects of such flooding; in 1813, Prince Jean Georges Caradja decided to clean up the river bed. The portion of the river flowing through the capital was channelled twice: in 1883 (to combat regular floods), and in the late 1970s, to aid in the replanning of the Central area and the construction of the Bucharest Metro. To prevent floods, in 1986 a dam was built between Crângași and Militari quarters, and Morii Lake artificial lake was created.
Dâmbovița has never been navigable, but there has been an unsuccessful attempt in 1902 to introduce boats on the river.
Early in its history, Bucharest had few bridges over the Dâmbovița, as the right bank was only sparsely populated. The estates of some boyars used to extend on both banks of the river and they had footbridges. Currently, there are sixteen bridges over Dâmbovița River in central Bucharest." 

"Dâmbovița* este un curs de apă din România, afluent al râului Argeș. Râul își are izvorul în Munții Făgăraș pe versantul muntelui Curmătura Oticului. Cursul superior de la izvoare până la confluența cu Boarcășu este cunoscut și sub numele de Izvoru Oticului sau Râul Oticu. În drumul său spre vărsarea în Argeș, râul străbate mai multe unități de relief: Munții Făgăraș, Munții Iezer-Păpușa, Munții Leaota, Subcarpații Getici și Subcarpații de Curbură, Podișul Getic, Câmpia Înaltă a Târgoviștei, Câmpia Titu, Campia Bucureștilor (vezi Câmpia Română) și Câmpia Burnazului.

Râul în București

Râul străbate municipiul București pe o distanță de aproximativ 22 de km, parcurgând orașul de la nord-vest la sud-est. Deși este principala sursă de apă în alimentarea Bucureștiului, râul a ridicat de-a lungul timpului diverse probleme, din cauza fenomenelor hidrologice rezultate din traversarea orașului: inundații, înmlăștiniri. Ca urmare a acestor fenomene, cursul râului a suferit o serie de amenajări, în prezent întregul său curs fiind canalizat.
La trecerea prin municipiul București, râul a fost barat pentru a forma Lacul Morii. În aval de acest lac, cursul râului a fost canalizat pe toată porțiunea de albie care străbate capitala. În aval de București, Dâmbovița are ca afluent râul Colentina.
În amonte de București, Dâmbovița este canalizată pentru ca apoi din râu să se desprindă spre sud un braț care va forma Râul Ciorogârla. După ce râul se desparte în două, Dâmbovița își urmează cursul spre București în albia sa naturală. Astfel, în cazul în care Dâmbovița are un debit foarte mare, surplusul va fi preluat de Râul Ciorogârla și Bucureștiul nu va fi inundat. De asemenea, modificarea traseului natural al râului are și efecte negative precum scăderea debitului râului în aval." *
