from a distance

yesterday, as i typed 'from a distance' in my 'flowers for friday' posting, i immediately thought of nanci griffith singing julie gold's words ... and i had these thoughts about yesterday's writing ... and the song ... and how the distance, through this blogging community has been shortened ~ perhaps the hope of hopes is possible with this 'smaller' world ...

from a distance, we sometimes don't see how beautiful things can be up close ...

from a distance, we sometimes don't face how things really are and don't want to get up close ...

from a distance, maybe we can work together to eliminate those awful things in the world and allow everyone to embrace ...

nanci and her singing and this song gives me goosebumps every time ... and if you watch til the end, i think her passion has given her goosebumps as well ...

Lovely! I had never heard this version, only Bette Midler's (also GREAT). Your words couldn't be more on target! Thanks!!

hi pj ~ thanks always for your comments ... and i knew that bette midler had sung this song before, but had only heard nanci's version, which apparently was the first recording of the song ... although this video was when nanci was quite young, she really sings it with her all! xo
