Gala LSRS din acest an a marcat totodata şi aniversarea a şase ani de fiinţă a acestui model de excelenţă academică născut din dragoste şi dor... După intonarea Imnului înălţător scena a inceput să vibreze de spiritul liber şi incandescent al tuturor participanţilor adunaţi de prin toate colţurile lumii veniţi în Patria de baştină a acestor copii născuţi într-un ceas anume hotărât de Providenţă pentru a trezi la viaţă Fiinţa Neamului românesc aţipit de neincredere şi trecătoare deznădejde...
Surpriza deplină a fost apariţia Preşedintelui ales Klaus Werner Iohannis, intelectual distins şi sobru zâmbind bucuros şi copleşit de efervescenţa celor din jur. Nu mai puţin plăcuta a fost şi apariţia deja cunoscutului Ministru de Externe Bogdan Aurescu, ambii vădit suporteri ai curentului de profunda schimbare inceput in societatea româneasca odata cu  alegerile de la sfârşitul anului 2014.

Citat despre uitare

Image
Uitarea semnifica in gradul cel mai inalt si constructiv-primenitor puterea de a ierta. 
"Pentru că le voi ierta nelegiuirile, și nu-Mi voi mai aduce aminte de păcatele și fărădelegile lor". Evrei 8:12 Daca pacatele si faradelegile sunt irevocabil iertate si uitate cu conditia de a le recunoaste si a-ti parea rau fara a le mai repeta vreodata atunci salvarea noastra are loc odata cu constientizarea acestei alternative la suferinta provocata de conflicte interioare sau exterioare. Acest citat despre uitare m-a inspirat sa amintesc despre libera optiune de a ramane captivi unui tipar mental morbid sau de a ne elibera de bunavoie traind in echilibru cu oferta generoasa a principiilor teocratice adanc ingropate pentru a nu produce efecte de trezire si renuntare la obiceiuri patologice cu consecinte peste generatii. Auzim in jur semeni de-ai nostri exprimand o contradictie in termeni pe care neglijeaza a o analiza: "Eu iert dar nu uit" lucru de altfel imposibil, daca ierti,…

The Hermitage Leningrad Western European Art

Image
Album de arta The Hermitage Leningrad Western European Art-Paintings, drawings, sculptures, publicat de Aurora Art Publishers-Leningrad, an aparitie 1984, 336 pagini, format 35x27, supracopera si caseta de protectie. Pentru doritori albumul este disponibil.
Istoria timpurie a Departamentului de Arta Occidentala Europeana se aseamana intrucatva chiar cu istoria Leningradului. Precum Sankt Petersburg a rivalizat cu cele mai somptuoase si luxoase capitale ale Europei, tot asa colectiile de opere de arta Apuseana, colectie inceputa in anul 1764- data oficiala a fondarii Ermitajului, nu a avut nevoie decat de doua decade ca sa ajunga opulenta si varietatea care au plasat-o alaturi de cele mai faimoase colectii europene.
Exponate izolate de arta europeana si-au gasit locul in Rusia in etapele istorice precedente, mai ales in timpul domniei lui Petru cel Mare dar aparitia colectiilor consistente a inceput propriu-zis in a doua jumatate a secolului al optsprezecelea.

New times melting at the feet of the visionary Master of Words, the unique Ion Luca Caragiale. Among most known statues of the old Bucharest there is one reminding forever of the unforgettable Caragiale. Ion Luca Caragiale, 1852–1912 (Romanian pronunciation: [iˈon ˈluka karaˈd͡ʒjale]; commonly referred to as I. L. Caragiale; was a great Romanian playwright, short story writer, poet, theater manager, political commentator and journalist. He is considered one of the greatest Romanian playwrights and writers, a leading representative of local humor, and a main representative of Junimea, an influential literary society with which he parted during the second half of his life.

Coltea church Bucharest

Image
Built during the 18th century this architecture masterpiece combines more architectural styles: byzantine, Brancoveanu style also known as the Wallachian Renaissance and Romanian Renaissance style and also Italian Renaissance elements. After the 1838 earthquake the building was renovated by the architect Faiser and the entrepreneur C. Schwink. In 1871 the famous Romanian artist Gheorghe Tattarescu painted the interior. Closed by the regime until 1989 the church of Coltea remains one of the most attractive  monuments of Bucharest. Placed near another monument, Coltea Hospital, the oldest hospital in the city, the architecture monument is a sample of long lasting resistance. If Romania is on your list to visit someday, stop by and take a tour of the so called Little Paris, Bucharest, you won't regret it :)
