I stumbled across this lovely artist through a Facebook link - and after watching I thought sharing was in order. Having learned over the years exactly what it is to be alone, and how to be comfortable with it, I found that Tanya hits all the right notes. I highly recommend going to the movies by yourself - even though when you tell your friends about it they'll look at you with a mix of incredulity and pity.
"How to be Alone" is a video by filmaker, Andrea Dorfman, and poet/singer/songwriter, Tanya Davis.
Davis wrote the beautiful poem and performed in the video which Dorfman directed, shot, animated by hand and edited.
