I bet some of you have already seen this video, How to Be Alone, a video poem by Canadian singer-songwriter Tanya Davis. It already has nearly a million views on YouTube. Thanks to Nicole and Cassie for letting me know about it.
Does anyone have a link to a transcript? (I couldn’t catch all of the words but maybe that’s just because of my not-great computer sound system.)
Thanks, too, to Alicia for sending me this quote she found in the book, Wit and Wisdom of Famous American Women:
“What a commentary on civilization, when being alone is considered suspect; when one has to apologize for it, make excuses, hide the fact that one practices it – like a secret vice.”
–Anne Morrow Lindbergh
