Coalition for the Homeless
16th Jully 2012
I have helped many individuals on numerous occasions, people left and discarded from the community. I have heard many life stories and it makes my heart stop every time I hear how life can be unfair and surprise us. My cousin Vesna, a beautiful young woman full of energy, works in Poreč’s Red Cross and together we worked on several projects to help the homeless. After a personal life story of a mother with a child who has cerebral palsy, and no home or food, I decided that the help these people need should be global.
Farm of love – Triad
Hela Liverić is the sister of my friend and actor Edvin Liverić. I have known her since she was a child and I have always admired her endless, wonderful, strong energy and love for animals. This brave and young woman always reminds me that nature and animals are essential to us. She lives alone with her dream. It always makes me happy when we meet and talk. She fills me with joy and peace!
Jazz improvisation & inspiration
4th August 2016
All I know about jazz and the commitment to the guitar – I know and have learned from Ratko Zjaca. We often talk via Skype because of our busy schedules. The one and only musician I know, and I know a lot of them, that only drinks water, runs every morning and is commited to Budism. I believe we will fulfill our dream one day to live closer and talk more often about love and music.
The warmth and openess of Aruba; Michelangelo Koolman
For as long as I know I have always enjoyed human voices, vocals. That is my special inspiration. That is why I’ve made countless free recordings and just enjoyed the talent and art that came from various projects. I met Angelo a long time ago and he took my breath away as an amazing vocal, as a singer. His story is a usual one and it reminds me how talented people are belittled and unrecognised. Angelo has his story, a long family history, a difficult path. I enjoyed his stories during the breaks, while we were not recording. While working with him (4 music videos and a documentary) I have discovered nature’s beauty, the mixture of tradition and vividness of his birthplace. Since we met my work has been inspired by that breathtaking island in the Carribean sea, especially its rocks molded by time, wind and waves.
Children’s hospital Rijeka, oncology department
2th December 2012
My dad Anton died from cancer when I was 12 years old and my mom was by his side all the time, so my big sister Gordana took care of me. Many years later my mom Borislava had breast cancer and as the brave and strong woman that she is, she successfully beat it. However, I will never forget what cancer has done to our family and how we all fought it, everyone in their own way. Today I believe that the cause of every disease is stress and dissatisfaction. This begins at how and what we do, think, who we hang out with. I had always had the need to help the sick, but the children from the oncology department in Rijeka just ‘took’ my heart.
The beauty and love for classical music – Alfi Kabiljo
9th April 2017
I remember one night, we talked about music and beauty. Health. I wrote down everything Alfi told me, I just wanted to remember everything we talked about and we talked a lot. After that night we worked together on several projects (I hope there are many more projects yet to come) and whenever we see or hear from each other we still hand out “recipices for longevity”. That makes us both happy and we wish to share our recipes and advice for as long as we can. The child in us keeps us young.
