Hands up if you read The Bloggess
If you don't, go take a look. But not right now, because you will start reading everything she has and forget to come back here. Oh, and be warned -- you will almost certainly be shocked at some point, and you will almost certainly laugh till coffee shoots out of your nose, so don't drink and read.

Anyway -- yesterday, on The Bloggess, I came across this video link.
This is a truly beautiful poem, How To Be Alone by Tanya Davis.
No, really -- watch.

I love being alone. For days at a time.
I love when the kids have gone to school, and the house is quiet, with no-one around but me; no TV or chatter, just me.
I love the nights when all I can hear are the waves on the beach, and frogs and crickets and cicadas in the summertime.
I love walking around town on my own, looking and not looking, shopping or not, just being and not worrying about anyone or anything.
I don't like crowds or hustle, they make me feel small and lost. I don't like The Big Smoke. I like Beachtown. I love my friends but I love being by myself.

But I still miss Fabio.


  1. I like being alone. Anywhere. Even in a crowd.

  2. The Doctors possible love interest, she keeps popping in and out of the show and she's gorgeous!

  3. I am not so good at 'alone'. In my world it doesn't happen very often, which is probably a good thing, but I tend to crave company. I do love the Blogess though. She is hysterical!

  4. I like doing the "alone" thing but when i plan it, it never works. tonightï'm alone. got the tv on in the background and just doing what i want.
    Loving your blog Toni. You are hilairious! xx

  5. Oh. I haven't seen any Dr Who for quite a while. Guess I've got some catching up to do.

  6. Good post and this mail helped me alot in my college assignement. Say thank you you seeking your information.
