How To Be Alone: A video by fiilmaker, Andrea Dorfman, and poet/singer/songwriter, Tanya Davis

This is entirely sappy and sweet and sincere and I want it on my blog.  A big part of being an introvert, for me, is feeling content when alone. More so, I seek out time to be alone. I crave it and I need it, like a flower needs sunlight, to recharge my insides and grow.  Some of my happiest moments have been spent doing things alone that are traditionally done in company.

And so, in the event that we ever meet, please do not be offended if I excuse myself to leave before everyone else.  There is a great satisfaction that most people never get to experience because they’re too caught up in some inherent need to constantly be around others; it comes from leaving a party long before everyone else does and enjoying a quiet and contemplative trip home, alone.
