"As Ovid and Shakespeare called upon a muse to begin their tales, it was Kate Callahan who offered me inspiration to write poetry.
Through her voice and lyrics, Kate pushed me to write my mighty emotions into words. When words could not explain my thoughts, she offered her experience as a songwriter to aid me in my quest so that I could piece together my art.
Art, whether it be song, painting or poetry was hopelessly lost on my eyes until a veteran offered a few kind words of support. Sharing what spells, strategies, and secrets she had discovered over her long time in service of a dawning art, Kate recruited a new soldier."
