The lady sitting alone in the movie theatre

When I was younger, there was no way I’d walk into a movie theatre alone. Because … What if someone saw me? What would they think? And I would wonder to myself about that lady sitting alone in the movie theatre … Is she lonely? Does she not have a partner or friend to come with her?

And despite having a house full of love and a pocket full of wonderful friends, I am often that lady sitting alone in the movie theatre. When I have a night to myself, I choose to be alone. I go to Chapters, then I eat at my favourite little Thai place, and then I head over to the movie theatre. I’ve really grown to enjoy being alone.

So whether you are alone by choice or not, check out this video by filmaker Andrea Dorfman and poet/singer/songwriter Tanya Davis. I think you’ll be glad you did … it’s both delightful and intriguing. (Big thanks to Sarah Carmichael who shared this on her cool blog Sarahcasm.)

It’s called “How To Be Alone.”
