  • How important is the sharing! Without it, everything falls flat. The looking around to find another pair of eyes registering the same amusement or wonder or grief or joy -- it's the emotional sustenance that keeps us going most days, isn't it?

    I found Cowbird only two weeks ago. When I clicked on that link, my jaw dropped as it does when something amazingly unexpected yet apparently craved suddenly appears in my life. What a mesmerizing world of storytellers and poets! And how welcoming are these lovely people, and how willing to share themselves, to lay it all bare in pictures and words.

    There is something deep and substantial and vital going on here that one cannot sum up neatly in an assembly of letters and punctuation. I feel it. I think you all feel it.

    I am so happy to be here.
