And benches made for sitting
gives strangers a shared existence
if only for a minute
And these moments can be so uplifting
And the conversations you get in by sitting alone on benches
might never have happened if you had not been there by yourself.

Via Streeteditors: This adorable video is doing the blogging rounds at the moment, and for good reason. Poet/singer/songwriter Tanya Davis has teamed up with film-maker Andrea Dorfman to artfully remind us all, “How to be alone”. The clip features adorable on screen illustrations, and reminders of “the little things” that make us happy. Davis’ narration is lovely throughout too… a beautiful reminder of the joys of life.
