  • Your eloquence soothed a ragged soul tonight. You wrote my heart and sent it a fork in the path to enjoy a different perspective which it has always welcomed.

    We are all seekers, knowers, questioners, quiet introspective philosophers, angry protesters, children, do-gooders, and do-badders. We share our stories to connect and to matter. From them we gather strength, freshened world-views, hope.

    Cowbird is if nothing else, a loud testament and witness to GREAT FAITH. Each author rises every day and finds the courage to face the demons that dog his/her heels. I too am grateful for the faith that bubbles from Cowbird, the courage that radiates from the stories, the light that brightens even the darkest shadow.

    Your shared honesty and open window to your heart and soul were a breath of mountain fresh breeze and echoed my thoughts. Thank you for putting to words the importance of this community where we are all allowed to be insiders, outsiders, odd, even, free, tethered, hurt, healed, lost and found ~ all at the same time.

    Faith, hope, the human strength of heart reside right here. The courage to take one more step, one more breath, tell one more story or right one more wrong is embedded in these gifts that each author brings to the table.
