JOANNA MORANI

Who I am? I would like to call myself just a creative one and feel grateful if others call me an artist. My design ideas are often inspired and strengthened by many other creative passions of mine, including photography, contemporary art and travel. But there was a period in my life when I did not have a clue about who or what I wanted to be. I was completely disconnected from whatever talents I might have had. I was fortune enough to had a great father who was an architect and who become more or less a mentor to me. He always encouraged me to believe in myself, follow and live my creativity in many ways. I immersed myself in work, and the years flew by. I was continually looking for the next job, the next challenge. The one constant in my schedule was an annual trip. Every year I visited some exotic destination. This was adventure travel, and it usually did not involve luxury hotels or pampering. The point was to get closer to another culture at last find more myself. One year I was in the mountains, hiking through a rhododendron forest. The views were incredible, but the mountain path was more suited to goats than to people. I was looking at the step incline coming up and thinking about how I hate going uphill. When was it going to be lunchtime? All of a sudden a light bulb went off in my head. The clouds just parted, the sun came out, and I can feel the warmth on my skin. Why don’t I enjoy it, instead of worrying about what’s up ahead?
I´ve learned the future will always be just out of reach. You’ll get there eventually but in the meantime, don’t miss the here and now. Live in the moment. That’s what’s important. What I am doing today? How can I use my energies? I don’t pretend to have absorbed this message completely, but I’m trying. There is always a before and an after; but the point is to be present and aware for all the moments in between. So I love what I do and do what I love and try always to do my best.
