About the author
Cameron Cowan describes himself as a writer, thinker, and human being who writes about things he sees and feels on his website, The Cameron Journal. As to why he writes, Cameron says, “Writing is a way to introduce new ideas and new concepts to people and slowly those words percolate into the general human consciousness that permeates us all. Eventually, ideas become like a virus and that virus spreads and infects our very souls and change results soon after. That is why do what I do.”
