Cathy joined the gang at Writer Wednesday since we began -- she came in with her Ukulele and her determination to play it -- plus her big beautiful smile! Her energy is so pure and giving...we all fell in love with her! Soon, she was writing songs and playing many many songs on her Uke! Cathy has been such an inspiration for all artists everywhere! We love your creative soul, and your faith in "smiling" away the dull moments, negative moments, and just ENJOYING LIFE!
Cathy wrote the theme song for Writer Wednesday at Bob's Espresso Bar!!!

|Such a powerful message from a SURVIVOR with such a beautiful spirit!|
Cathy, Thank you for all that you've given us, and the inspirations you've shared! We are going to have to go back to u-streaming the show just for Cathy because she is that loved!
speaking of the love...
the Los Angeles Poet Society, driver behind Writer Wednesday, want to award E. Cathy Cole with the
Spirit of Life
The Spirit of Life Award (SOL), is presented to a member of the Los Angeles community for their dedication to their creativity, and for being a driving force within their communities, serving spoonfuls of inspiration and camaraderie through art.
Since her journey led her to Bob's for Writer Wednesday, Cathy has shown us her sorrows and dreams, and we've watched her transform that sorrow into beauty, and her dreams become concrete, through the vehicle of art and her determination. Each week, Cathy continued to learn her Ukulele, and soon master it to be able to write her own music!
She has since created the theme song for Writer Wednesday at Bob's Espresso Bar, tap danced and sang, and featured for the Salon @ NoHo, and Writer Wednesday! Cathy's energy also led her to volunteer with the Los Angeles Poet Society for the 1st Annual Lit Crawl in LA, North Hollywood!
She is a true inspiration and shares her love of the arts and zest for life with all of us! We are so proud of who she is and blessed to be a part of her life!
Thank you, Cathy! It's an honor to give you this award, and name it for you all the years to come! Lots of love to you always!
