I spent Janury in the House. I was mostly writing. Sometimes it would happen that I didn’t leave the House for a few days. Something like this usually doesn’t happen to a man. When there’s silence in the House, one can hear a noise from the Pit. Davor says there’s a monster there, beneath. Sundays […]

A month away from the whims of urban living. A month in Pazin, like a whole light year. Sounds like a good beginning of a story and a great beginning of a year. This 2012 started exceptionally well for me. I got a sunny February in Pazin while the rest of the country was covered […]

How I became Pažanin, Pazinjan, Pazinac… Writers usually have books. Some of them even readers. But to be given a house, well, that’s a really great honour. Thanks to Iva and Davor, I lived in the Pazin’s Writers’ House for a week. I enjoyed my time at Buraj, observed the Pazin Castle, listened to a […]

Where were you, they ask me. I was above the gorge. The gorge is overflown by birds, as if in competition, as if it is harder to overfly the gorge than fly the open skies, as if the gorge has an alluring power that needs to be withstood, flown over in spite, plunge and then […]

To my great pleasure, last summer I received an invitation from Iva Ciceran of the Pazin Town Library, and then also from Neven Ušumović of the Umag Town Library to present my novel “Adios, Cowboy” in Istria. Of course, I accepted the invitation eagerly and in October 2010, during the Book Month, I spent a […]

It’s impossible to resist starting this writing with an appropriate quoting: “Midway upon the journey of our life / I found myself within a forest dark / For the straightforward pathway had been lost. / Ah me! How hard a thing it is to say / what was this forest savage, rough, and stern! / […]

I can draw it for you, I can show you photographs from there, I can tell you stories about it, I can write a hundred lines of text, but still – you won’t be able to see what it is, where it is and what the “Writers’ House” is really like. Because – you very […]

Every travel is a journey towards oneself. You always see yourself in the eyes of the others and get to know more about them and about yourself. Here in Pazin, in The House of Writers, among birds, lush green trees and bright blue skies I had an opportunity to read, write and think undisturbed. I […]

I’ve been in Pazin for three weeks now. Everything is just as I hoped it would be, but for  the weather. In the gorge beneath the Writers’ House snowdrops have been blooming for three weeks now but winter just wouldn’t go away. Luckily, the small house is warm, the air-conditioning is working fine. Whenever I […]
