How to be Alone.

I'd offer up some tips as well (it's an area I have an ample amount of experience in after all), but seeing Tanya Davis' poem performed and spoken by her is more than enough. She turns the whole solitude notion on its ear and, all at once, it's not a sad thing. And she assures, once and for all, that lonely hearts are certainly not "wasting away in basements."

that really was beautiful. and as someone who does NOT like being alone it made me want a bit of alone time. thank you! of course, i just have to say that as an observation while the credits rolled, i couldn't help but think that she couldn't make the recording as beautiful and amazing as it was alone. there was a handful of people involved in creating it. just an observation - nothing critical intended. thank you again for bringing my attention to something of beauty.

Amen. She has a cadence to her voice that was made for being alone.

I need to go find a nice park bench.

I liked that. I cherish my alone times. Wait, that doesn't happen anymore. No, not even in the bathroom, shower. . . nope, not anywhere!
