  • The more I read stories on Cowbird, the more I realize that a story tells not so much what you experienced, but how you experienced it.

    I don't know about you, but it makes me feel relieved that I don't have to go out of my way to find 'exciting' stories to share (not that there are many places to look in my suburban hometown), and can simply trust my own instincts.
