Little Tiny

I’m thrilled today to introduce my Garden friends to my in-real-life friend and truly lovely songwriter and person BRANDI EDISS. Yay! Brandi moved here just over a year ago and my life--really the whole valley in which we reside--is dramatically improved by Brandi’s presence. She writes and performs super-purty songs and has a tremendous skill for portrait photography, among other talents.

Been thinking about sharing this song "Little Tiny" in the Garden for quite a while and I feel certain that it will receive a warm reception from you all. I can relate to the vulnerability and feelings Brandi bravely sings about here, and I think many of you might as well.

Click around Brandi’s YouTube page for more great and often festive offerings (for example, my favorite of her originals is "This Is My Stupid Boyfriend"). Brandi is working on recording her first CD Bees and Bees and Bees, to be released later this year. Enjoy!

And oh yeah, this is a poetry prompt! Your task today is to be inspired by Brandi’s song to write your own verse on the subject(s) of being and/or feeling alone, building walls, glockenspiels and jingle bells, cliches and replays, or anything else "Little Tiny" brings up for you.
