  • Cycling into the centre of Amsterdam I like to take the route along the Amstel ( the body of water from which Amsterdam gets it's name). Over the hump-backed bridges, past the Carre theatre and the Skinny bridge on towards the Opera house. (Oh, this is such a beautiful city)
    Right at the end, just before the Blue Bridge there's this curious house with large windows filled with green foliage and globes. Lots and lots of globes. I like this house and have often wanted to photograph it. Coming back from town yesterday I finally took a photo with my mobile phone and now I know why....

    It's a perfect symbol for Cowbird. Are these not the energising circles you speak of Diane, these worlds we exist in, spinning out our stories; big worlds, small worlds, worlds touching, interacting, sharing. Held together within the framework created and provided by Jonathan and tended to and nurtured by Annie. And all these global stories reflecting back out into the world again.

    It's a privilege and very inspirational to be a part of it.
