Wisdom thoughts by dr.Peter Florjančič

Connecting generations

‘Never underestimate the influence you have on others.’

– Laurie Buchanan

Music has a very important role in my life. By the age of thirteen I was all ready singing in a young backup group with Mr.Vlado Kreslin.

Understanding the work and sweet behind the music industry, I do have a deep and great respect for every great musician artist.

Summer of 2019 was the summer colored in music festivals in my home country, Slovenia.

I got an offer from Slovenian blacksmith Mr. Lenart Perko to shoot a story and help with the performance he held on metal days. An offer I could not refuse.

“We are all dreamers playing with a variety of ideas, but only a true visionary brings the idea to life.”

– dr. Peter Florjančič

Through the years of experiences, time taught me how to cope and survive in the the unfamiliar environment with people yet unknown and land yet to be discovered, but photographing under a heavy metal vibrations while staying behind the stage in my travel mobile house for 24/7 all week, made my bones shaken.

Sound of adventure? Yeah, coming back from Russia practically straight forward to metal days for the first time really pushed me out from my comfort zone.

I drown to Sotočje to Tolmin one day earlier to relax a beat and feel the environment. So far, so good. Everything looks clean and ready as well as Mr. Perko was all ready waiting with a perfect spot for me and my mobile home.

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”

– Albert Einstein

We went around to investigate what the festival can offer besides the music stages as well as discus about our performance. 

Just a few minutes of walk from the parking spot, the emerald Soča River appeared all shining in its glory. Its headwaters spring up in the heart of Triglav National Park, under the steep peaks of the Julian Alps. It truly is one of my favorite river in Slovenia. 

Food cords looked clean and were very well organized using a biodegradable materials trying to reduce plastics.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” The question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “What is your genius?”

– Albert Einstein

Staff felt welcoming and generous, hardworking and happy.

I was quite impressed by all the diversiyy of food in the offer. Mostly vegan based, using organic and eco products with a purpose to minimize the impact of transportation and pollution.

Garbage deposit is the name itself says, it is a deposit, which means that the visitor gets the money back once they return full garbage bags to the garbage point.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.”

– Albert Einstein

I could get a clean and drinkable running water throughout the festival area, which allowed me to refill my bottles.

I was pleased to see Slovenian people aware of a major environmental issues and doing something about it.

I have traveled countries filled with plastics all around peoples houses in the deep forest or in dry areas. Plastic was there to show their status, not aiming to destroy the environment. The more plastics you have, the richer you are. “The more Coca Colla in your life.”

The problem is a lack of knowledge and quality information that is doing so. Bravo Metal days, way to go!

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

Wisdom thoughts by dr.Peter Florjančič

Connecting generations

‘Never underestimate the influence you have on others.’

– Laurie Buchanan

A few years ago my life introduced me to a very special man. An inventor who has traveled countries as I did, but his story was intertwined with different routes as mine was, till we met on crossroad. That was a ride of its one.

Shortly afterwards I met Peter, a beautiful young student Tjaša approached.

Eager to learn about mathematics behind the camera, hoping to hear the stories from across the seas. Her greatest wish was to meet dr. Peter Florjančič.

Peter on the other hand loves young people. “They are like a fresh air, a new idea”, he says.

“We are all dreamers playing with a variety of ideas, but only a true visionary brings the idea to life.”

– dr. Peter Florjančič

I have decided to connect young and old, “the energy” and “the experience” with a full respect between each other.

photo: Tjaša Rozman

I felt like a diode transmitting the energy in-between, wanted to squeeze Peter’s words through a tiny frame to memorise them.

Later on I took some time to process stories Peter shared among us.

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”

– Albert Einstein

“Everything you do is a creation, is an invention. From learning how to breathe without mom’s help, how to eat, how to talk, to walk, to listen, to love, to create, to accept, to learn, to exist…”

“Do not underestimate your ideas nor any of your experiences. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

“You do not know how to develop a patent, I can teach you that. I do not know how to communicate among nomads, you can teach me that.”

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” The question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “What is your genius?”

– Albert Einstein

We need to learn how to improve and grow. We all share the same world and yet have our own story to follow. That is a beauty of individuality and makes us unique.

“You are your greatest friend or your greatest enemy. If you do not believe in your ideas, nobody will.”

“Everything is an invention, from your first steps to your first runn…

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.”

– Albert Einstein

…from inventing an airbag system to patenting photographic slide frame…

…from learning how to be a father to patenting a new perfume atomizer.”

“I was an inventor in my twenties, forties, sixties, eighties and still am an inventor in my hundreds, because I have chosen to believe in my ideas. I have chosen to believe in me.”

“I can assure you from my experiences, we are all born inventors. Life is an invention. If you learn how to listen and observe, you have the same power as others to develop your idea.”

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

– Albert Einstein

There is an infinite flame in us, but it needs a constant attention for to sustain, no matter the generation.

Elders need a purpose, need to feel somebody needs them and are happy to share positive and negative results of their past projects. 

photo: Tjaša Rozman

Youngsters need to hear stories about victories, adventures, even scrapes and are absorbing the knowledge they once need or will consider hearing.

““In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

– Abraham Lincoln

Life is a journey. One must involve young and old generations together and I do strongly believe it is mutually beneficial for a lifelong learning.

Peter felt relaxed and happy to debate about his birthplace (Bled) and about the culinary that he met in his life with ‘high society’ in Monte Carlo and elsewhere. He says he will come back when he can.

With Peter we really recommend you visit the Globočnik homestead. We simply know that you will have a great time there.
