- Producer10/07/2016"THE DANCING SOCRATES"My trip to Transylvania was one of such journeys which you want to take for yourself. We need sometimes to make our mind and answer some questions : What I want to do? What will be my next step to fulfil my life. I achieved a lot in a very young age...
Comments09/08/2016 #41 Lisa GallagherSuch an inspiring and capturing journey of the body and mind you've shared with us @Joanna Hofman!! When I was younger, I thought Transylvania was a fictional place. How beautiful it is! When we are seeking external stimulus, like that from the earth and universe- I think it is then we can find out so much more about ourselves. The photos are beautiful! So happy you were able to do this.25/07/2016 #40 Deb HelfrichWhat an inspiring journey you just shared with me, @Joanna Hofman. I love this sooooo much:
"During this journey I learnt, how important is to share with others...share beauty, difficult moments, laugh and dance during the rain, talk to trees, swim in the river during the sunset, admire a beauty of nature and wake up at the morning with first beams of the sun. "25/07/2016 #34 Lisa GallagherGreat story @Joanna Hofman. Like @Lada Prkic I would love to just pack up and travel. I think it's important if people can travel not to wait and save it all up until they retire. I've seen too many wait, only to become ill and not able to travel and follow their dreams.25/07/2016 #33 Lada PrkicWhat an inspiring story, @Joanna Hofman! I wish I could pack my backpack, just like that, and take the journey for myself. But always find an excuse why I cannot do that and looking for the reasons that facilitate decision not to go, such as my family obligations, my work, my fear of travelling alone …The “What if?” question that I ask myself is always stops me.
For now, my life runs in the ordinary way, but I’m still waiting to dazzle myself. :)24/07/2016 #32 Joanna Hofman#30@Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, thank you for your meaningful comment. Yes, as long we allow to live a child inside us as long we will enjoy every second in our life and small, simple things will bring us a joy...a drop of rain, butterfly, colourful rainbow, sunny day ...24/07/2016 #31 Max CarterI often say that to have your true desire in life become that which you desire most. Figuring out what it you desire most from within is what creates the you that lives that life that is endlessly following your bliss. The character you become that gives life a cinematic view.24/07/2016 #30 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD"During this journey I learnt, how important is to share with others...share beauty, difficult moments, laugh and dance during the rain, talk to trees, swim in the river during the sunset, admire a beauty of nature and wake up at the morning with first beams of the sun." Love this piece from its inception, questioning LIFE and living LIFE outside of boundaries, with freedom to be "You." A universal message indeed, and a trip, going on this trip with you. I can smell the grass and run my fingers along the jagged paint on the outer building walls. The icons of relatives past are iconic, to say the least. And your conclusion Quote...is just like @Max Carter said too, "Everything and everyone is connected. Nothing can be attracted only reflected." ~ Thank you for the inspiration. Great for kids of all ages.12/07/2016 #24 Joanna Hofman#23 Thank you, Ken for sharing your personal experiences. The mountain always sounds to me very symbolic - like life : sometimes we reach a top but sometimes we are in the valleys where we learn patience and prepare ourselves to reach a top of our mountain . I like your expression in the comment.12/07/2016 #23 Ken BoddieI'm glad you conquered your mountain, Joanna, and even more so that you enjoyed the journey. I used to love walking and climbing in the high Cairngorm Mountains when I was a lad in Scotland, and was always impatient to reach the next peak or ridgeline. The mountains are majestic and lift the soul, but the valleys are where we spend most of our lives and where we learn patience and tolerance. Thanks for bringing back memories. ⛰11/07/2016 #22 Dean Owen#21 Fantastic @Joanna Hofman, I love the Himalayas. Do remember that the mountain you climbed in Transylvania, at 2,500m, is a typical starting point for mountains in the Himalayas to do take lots of carbohydrates (Tibetans and Nepalese eat lots of potatoes). Am so looking forward to your trip!
