Wordless Wednesday - How Be Alone

Indie filmmaker Andrea Dorfman's creation features the spoken word poetry and original music of Halifax poet/singer/songwriter Tanya Davis. The video debuted late last month, but it has already attracted a fair bit of attention, and it has appeared on several websites in recent days. I enjoyed it, and I thought I would like to tuck it in here this morning.

As a spoken word poetry performance, there are words of course (duh), but they are not my words after all, and in their own way, they fit in beautifully with the notions of solitude and wordlessness which are Wednesday's special province.

Thank you to Wenda at Daring to Write for bringing the video to my attention!

Absolutely wonderful.....the truth of this video comes through loud an clear! If I can't be okay on my own, how will I ever be okay with anyone else? And at this point in my life, being alone is blessed relief from a life lived with people who were not concerned with my highest good....only I can attend to that. Me, myself and I.....we get along just fine.
