  • This is amazing. Cowbird, I mean.

    Someone once said that when he had a problem he would open the book ’Gulliver’s Travels’ and always get an answer. I am sure there are other books like that for other people but for me, to my surprise, it has turned out to be Cowbird. If I have to decide something or I have a problem, I open my computer and there is a story just addressing the issue I am pondering about. How strange is that?

    Sometimes I want to write about something and the very minute I decide that I find a story telling about the very same thing.

    Yesterday I had to make up my mind about something, and what do you know – I see a story by Barbara, called ’Today’s Totem’ and it is exactly about my dilemma. Change. Spread your wings and fly. Take a chance... Well, at least I know I am on the right track.
