The Writer's Mountain Hut

I created The Writer’s Mountain Hut to achieve, at least virtually, my dream of owning a cabin in the mountains. I still don’t know where I would place my virtual cabin, but I know what I would fill it with.

Lots of books, a fireplace, cats, good food, a record player and vinyl, some frivolous chat, and some discussion on life’s meaning drinking grappa.

Outside the window, there’s my beloved Friuli Venezia Giulia who, I’m sure, will make you fall in love too.
