  • Today I had the pleasure of drinking afternoon coffee with my Cowbird friend Katie Yates in the beautiful Ólafsfjörður, where she has been staying for three weeks with her kids and friend at the Listhus Artspace. Tomorrow afternoon we will meet again for a visit to Siglufjörður, after the local soccer team’s game in Ólafsfjörður. Siglufjörður and Ólafsfjörður are part of the same municipal and there are 10 miles between these villages, whereof 6 miles are in tunnels through the mountains surrounding the two fjords.

    This is the second time I meet a Cowbird friend in person, but I have twice been enjoying wonderful meals and talks with San Cassimally at his home in Edinburgh. I also had the pleasure of meeting Jonathan Harris while he was creating Cowbird here in Siglufjörður.

    Thank you Jonathan and crew for Cowbird and thank you Katie, San and other Cowbirders for making life better and more interesting. I hope our Cowbird will survive in the ever changing internet world.
