  • This is my contribution to the project being created by Jaga to celebrate Cowbird’s First Birthday

    “The trick is to find out what we know, challenge what we know, own what we know, and then give it away in language...We must be able to transform the raw material of our experience into language that reaches beyond the self-involvement of that person standing at the window, so that what we know becomes shared knowledge, part of who we are as individuals, a culture, a species.” This quote by Kim Addonizio and Doreen Laux sums up the essence of Cowbird for me. My life as been enriched as a person, as a human being and as a global citizen. As a writer I have found generous, gifted mentors that have validated, encouraged and stretched my abilities. And due to the vision and tireless efforts of Jonathan, Annie and David and Team Cowbird, I’ve seen that dreams not only become reality but that they change the world in ways we cannot begin to imagine. Cowbird has given the virtual world a soul and I’m deeply grateful to be a part of it as the experience ripples through future generations.
