  • Today I got to meet someone I have been reading for a few months on Cowbird. When the planets align and things just fall into place so I get this kind of gift, I get grateful. Sometimes it's a short encounter that leaves me feeling giddy and filled with hope - like today. A connection is made with someone who has the same drive to write, the same life of emotions, hurts and loves. Another human being just being with me for an hour, talking.

    This site has enabled a community to come together that would not have been possible otherwise. This is a place for real and genuine expression that allows for deep knowledge of one another that isn't found so often out there in the work world or in family. It's very cool to meet someone and immediately connect in person because we have gotten to know each other through a medium like this. It's wonderful.
