Anxietatea este starea de nelinişte, de aşteptate încordată, însoţită de palpitaţii, jenă în respiraţie etc. În general această stare însoţeşte boli psihice, dar nu neapărat. Sunt foarte multe cazuri care nu sunt înregistrate ca anxietate pentru că nu se manifestă la o scară aşa de largă, cu toate acestea tot anxietate se numeşte.

Trăiesc într-o lume lipsită de magie sau de miracole. Un loc unde nu există clarvăzători sau metamorfi, nici îngeri, nici băieţi cu puteri supraomeneşti care să te salveze.

În astronomie, se numesc solstiții cele două momente din an când planul determinat de centrul Soarelui și de axa de rotație a Pământului este perpendicular pe planul orbitei Pământului. În cele două momente ale anului unghiul făcut de razele soarelui cu orizontul la amiază este cel mai mare (vara) sau cel mai mic (iarna) din an.
Mai pe înţelesul tuturor, astăzi e ziua cea mai lungă din an în emisfera nordică, al noi, şi cea mai scurtă în cea sudică, adică în Australia, America de Sud, Polul Sud, etc. Ziua are 15 ore şi 32 minute, iar noaptea numai 8 ore şi 28 minute. La noapte dormim mai puţin!
- Eveniment marcat în fiecare an în data de 21 iunie, solstiţiul de vară se spune că este favorabil unor magii puternice. Energia solstiţiului de vară este considerată a fi o energie a pasiunii, a vitalităţii, a creativităţii şi a belşugului.
- În ţările europene , după convertirea la creştinism, s-a înrădăcinat tradiţia sărbătoririi zilei Sfântului Ioan Botezatorul în ziua de 24 iunie. Ioan Botezătorul este omagiat în ziua naşterii lui. Această sarbatorire este fixată la câteva zile după solstiţiul de vară, la fel cum Crăciunul a fost stabilit la câteva zile dupa solstiţiul de iarnă. Se spune că aşa cum Ioan l-a precedat pe Isus, la fel solstiţiul de vară îl anunţă pe cel de iarnă.
- La români , solstiţiul de vară este apropiat şi legat de sărbătoarea Sânzienelor.
- Pentru celți, anul nou începea atunci când vechiul dragon era ucis şi apărea un alt dragon. Druizii, preoţii din regiunile celtice, sărbătoreau Alban Heruin, solstiţiul de vară, situat la jumătatea intervalului de timp dintre echinoxul de primăvară (Albam Eiler) şi echinoxul de toamnă (Alban Elfed). Acest festival al miezului de vară celebra apogeul Luminii, simbolizat uneori prin încoronarea "Regelui Stejar", zeul creşterii anului.
- În China antică, ceremonialul Solstiţiului de Vară consta într-o sărbătoare dedicată pământului, forţei feminine şi principiului Yin. În vechea Galie, solstiţiul era denumit "Sărbătoarea lui Epona", după numele zeiţei cailor, personicarea fertilităţii, independenţei şi agriculturii.

Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace
Series: The Grimm Diaries #1
Publication: May 30th 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal/Fairy Tale
Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.
Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.
When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.
The real Snow White... living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.
What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.
Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live, and whispers two words in his ears; two words that will change his life forever.
Sometimes I tell stories. Always luv the little monsters I write young adult paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and science fiction mostly. The Grimm Diaries series is a seven book saga that deals with retellings of fairy tales from a young adult POV - it connects most of the fairy tales together and claims to be the truth about fairy tales. I live in San Fransisco and seriously think circles are way cooler than triangles.

When darkness meets light there is a flame that lights the dark.
Araya Noelle is drowning into her own darkness after the accident that takes away her passion: dance. She is finally accepting that there is nothing that she could change. No hate, no resentments, just resignation. In her own shell, she has no contact with the outside world and it’s starting to be worse. What can be done? “Nothing” she would have said, but the she met Ryland Dare.
Dare. Dare. Dare. Only his name is daring her. Forcing his entry into Araya’s world, Ryland is the light in the middle of the obscurity.
The Edge of Darkness is written by Melissa Andrea. This author is just amazing. I never thought that a story with such a simple plot could make me so emotional. I enjoyed every single page. Araya’s life was something that I cannot really explain, it was a mess and her family did not make it easier for her. However she was ok with how she lived, because she did not have something to compare this to. What was different at this book? Well, there was the way things were between Araya and Ryland, they haven’t that messy love that makes everything complicated, no it was easy, and they did not really have something. It was the way they react that made everything better. Beside Ryland, Araya and her family it was his family, Dare family. If I was thinking that Araya’s relatives were not quite a family, Ryland’s was worse. His father was the kind of guy that wanted everyone to do as he says, as he wants it to be. So there is where all the problems start because the entire Dare family is like this.
The characters were really nice built; they had good and bad sides. You know the books where the main character, the boy, is that charming guy with a bad temper? Not really sounds like Ryland. And Araya, even if she had her moments of weakness she had proven that she can take care of herself and be independent.
I don’t know what impressed me more: the way it was written the book or the story. I was happy to see that we could be in two worlds in the same book: Araya’s and Ryland’s, we had the two sides of the story. I am quite limited when I know only one side of the story, I like being everywhere and this gave the book some pluses from the beginning.
Maybe you wander what is with the title or you make assumption about it, I can tell you that you won’t guess, it’s something that I could not imagine, I didn’t even think about it, I had a whole different interpretation. This is an example of a good choice of title, because is amplifying the mystery.
The end of the book was wow! I was expecting only one book, but it is a series. So I was dazed about how it ended. Even if there are many books, I was hoping that I could find out the answer to the question that has tortured me through the story, but no, I haven’t, so I am planning to read the next book, or books, I want to find out the answer. There isn’t a closure. Nevertheless this was not everything. The final of the first book has something special. I mean you expect a bum, you know those big things that mess with your head? You expect the main characters to fight, to cry, but there was something which all of us could learn: how to be selfless.
The Edge of Darkness was a nice book, and a recommend you to read it if you have the opportunity, because it is more than a romantic story, it is life put on paper.
1. How would you describe yourself in a few words?
4. What would you say to a teenager that would want to become a writer? Which would be your advice?
She is forced to give up her chance to be the youngest dancer accepted into Julliard & taking over their high society school by a graceful storm of determination is no longer an option. Instead of dwelling over her loss, she accepts the new future she’s been dealt. In a world as black as hers, there's no room for bitterness, no time for regret. Sheltered from the outside world, Araya has become suffocated by a life she has no control over. Until Ryland Dare comes crashing into her life.
You don’t know true darkness until you've felt light…
Like a firecracker, showering her with colorful sparks of freedom, Ryland quickly sweeps Araya away from her grey existence. For the first time since the accident, living in darkness is no longer something Araya wants to do willingly. Unleashed by the shadows of her reminder, being with Ryland, Araya touches light. Together they will learn what it’s like to feel alive for the first time.
At the edge of darkness, a ray of light, will dare them both to HOPE.
DARE them to LOVE
DARE them to LIVE
