From A Distance


Perspective is everything. You don't know that you don't have it, until you get it.

For the past few months, I have been finding social media painful. I am not sure if it would be wiser to leave completely, or to stay and try to be a positive voice in all the negativity. To all those positive voices out there, I love you, thank you. Of course I understand that people will have different views than me, and they are free to share those views. This does not bother me. It is when people cross the line and become mean, that it hurts my soul. I am a very empathetic person, I am also very private with my emotions. This can be an awful combination because I end up holding a lot inside.

With everything going on in the world, what if we all took a step back and gained some perspective? We are not as different as we think we are. The beautiful song, From a Distance, has been on my mind. I found it cathartic to make a recording of it this afternoon. Your belief system doesn't matter (really), if you pray to God, Allah, Jehovah, or the Universe, we are all deserving of love and peace. We are all capable of spreading love and peace.

  1. What a lovely rendition of From A Distance. O, to be musical! What a gift! I shut down facebook a couple of years ago and it was a healthy decision for me. I needed more than a break. I needed to take a stance. I dropped my website due to life changes and miss the creative outlet that gave me, but I have channeled my artistic yearnings into other things. Nothing is static. If you are feeling a lack of love for social media, you may be moving toward something more fulfilling for you.
