  • Being cowbirds together is of the top five best things in the world. You can see the heart of each other's stories, where they came from, give advice, and well, brag without shame.

    You can take flight together. When I first sat before cowbird, I thought my problem was not enough stories would come to mind. From then on, my problem was too many. My mind was subject to a waterfall of ideas. I scribble down the ideas that stay, and some get abandoned. Cowbird has opened my mind to everything. Anything can be a story, and I'm glad I can get my ideas out there.

    My home is a cowbird nest. Filled with things of the past, present, and future. This is the structure of stories.
    Some kids in the decade despise writing. Who's scared of a little work? There's nothing more enlightening then writing your own stories and listening to/reading others. I'll thank the dad of the cowbird nest for this form of mind. He passed on the cowbird tradition, cowbird to cowbird. We're a team. He's the tech-guy, as he helped me through the disastrous time when I thought I had lost a story. I won't get into that.

    We've been trying to persuade mother to be a cowbird. With an amazing life story to tell, she should write it down and fling it into the public eye. There's nothing embarrassing about past hardships.

    her worry is that no one will understand her english. Embarrassment is in the way again. But as a family of cowbirds, it is our duty to help each other. She can write in Turkish, and we can translate.

    It's the cowbird tradition. Pass it on.
