  • I run every morning to the computer to find Cowbird waiting for me. I read and read all the stories and I love nearly all of them.
    My life in the last few years has been quite lonely, more by choice that anything else. To be alone is not to be lonely. The first one is a matter of being in a private space. The second one is to feel isolated .I guess many disappointments made me become a hermit and at certain age, to trust again seems to be a more difficult task.
    My life has changed since I joined Cowbird. I have so many friends on the site, that I never feel alone anymore.
    I know is strange to think about friendship with people on the other side of the world, and who one has never met,but by an strange phenomenon I feel very close to all of you .I read your thoughts, your experiences, your sad events, the happy ones and sometimes I am so touched by the beauty of your writing that I have the need to reach through the screen with my arms and give a warm hug to all of you. You open your souls through your stories and I see just so much beauty and every one of you has so much talent and courage to talk about your lives and your challenges. I appreciate every time that one of you loves one of my stories. I feel humble in my writing and I know that being Spanish speaking is not that easy. To acquire the vocabulary and fluid style that I used to have in my mother tongue is a difficult task.
    But on the other hand I am sure that the people in Cowbird can read beyond words. You have a great sensitivity and I love all of you for this.
    I just want to say thanks from the bottom of my heart. You changed my life and I am very grateful for that.
