I like this. Not sure exactly why but felt I should post it here for future reference (though it has been on YouTube since July 28, 2010, and Roger Ebert tweeted about it almost immediately).

Tanya Davis is a singer-songwriter and poet from Halifax, Nova Scotia. According to her website, she has been performing spoken word poetry since 2000. She published her first book At First, Lonely (a collection of poems) around this time last year. Though I’m a new fan, I find her work familiar, warm, and simply honest.
