  • I don't consider myself one to take risks. Rather I see myself as reserved, pensive, and often fearful.

    Deep down, my heart longs to be one for exploration, nomadic hunting, and a life filled with awe and wonder.

    For the past 13 or so years, I've kept a journal. I don't know that I'm that good at writing, but it has served me well personally as a way to document my story, stepping back enough to see more objectively and just to track my progress through life.

    I do want to continue growing in my writing skills and share my thoughts more.

    I'm a heavy empathizer—I feel things deeper than others may realize due to my quietness. I frequently am in a mode of observation and listening, but don't always speak up about what's going through my head.

    The frustration I have with writing is the difficulty in attempting to frame the emotion of a space or a person or a situation in a concrete, transferable manner and my impatience, wanting to immediately pour out the perfect words, clearly exclaiming how something has left me in awe.

    I see Cowbird as being a place I may try to start practicing these things again.
