Love her poetry put to music. This was lyrical, beautiful. (And I'm just a little jealous of her, sitting on park benches, walking train tracks, knitting, playing guitar, alone, alone...)

Yea, saw this one on facebook and loved it. It's sad and happy at the same time.

Wow! That was great. I nearly didn't watch it . . and now I'm glad I did. It's made my smile reach across my face to both my ears and my eyes have crinkled (with a smidgen of tears). Maggie, thank you for finding it and posting it on your blog. (To say I lurk here a lot! is an understatement - your writing touches my heart, so thank you for that too).

Elisabeth said...

I've seen this before. I think it's fantastic. Thanks for reminding me.

I've seen this around. And I don't know where I was reading some discussion regarding it, but I had to agree. Where did the idea come that being a woman who is alone and doesn't need a guy or a companion or a posse of girlfriends or whatever is bad , or hard, or not socially acceptable. I kind of found it a step backwards in a sense.
Initially I was all..oh this is so so beautiful
And then I realized, wait . I don't get where the problem was to begin with. Is it a reflection of our super plugged in social society now. Which of course I'm too old to be a part of so don't get this angst.

( and thanks for being someone I knew I could be honest with here )

I do love that video, as a mom of 3 I dont get many moments of silence and solitude

Amanda said...

Yes! This is awesome! Also saw this via one of my favorite mommy bloggers, Rebecca of GirlsGoneChild.net!

Wish I had seen this 15 years ago...;)

Oh my god, I loved that.

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

Amen.

Middle Child said...

This is just amazing - I often sit and have coffee by myself, or walk about...but so many more things and ways to get out and about alone - and not be seen as loneliness being a problem...maybe the time is also a gift
