"Little Person" (aka "Song for Caden")

This is deep, hopeful, beautiful, tragic, real. I love this song, from a disturbing and fascinating and true movie I want to see again, "Synecdoche, New York." Not pronounced Si-nek-dosh, but Si-NEK-duh-kee. Not "Schenectady" which is derived from a Mohawk word for "on that side of the pinery," or "near the pines," or "place beyond the pine plains." But meaning "simultaneous understanding"...substitution of a part for the whole...a human life for Human Life.
