From a Distance

Bette Midler, this woman has long since been an idol of mine. She’s funny, serious, talented, and just an amazingly wonderful woman. From characters like Winifred that make you laugh until you cry to songs that bring tears to your eyes, she’s the complete package as a performer. I don’t normally do this, but today I’m going to share the lyrics of this song because it’s just as relevant now as it was in 1987 when it was released.
From a distance, the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance, the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight
From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land
It’s the voice of hope
It’s the voice of peace
It’s the voice of every man
From a distance, we all have enough
And no one is in need
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease
No hungry mouths to feed
To read the full lyric go here
I am constantly asking the question “why?” Why is there so much hate, so much anger? Why do we have to hurt and kill each other? Why do we have to belittle and berate those that are different from us? So many questions that have no answers. I dream of a world where people can get along, respect one another, and live in harmony. Maybe I’m a dreamer but it’s better than accepting things the way they are.

This gorgeous dress from AnaMarkova is what inspired my song, whenever I think of Bette Midler I think diva, I think old school and this dress just totally made me think of this classy woman I admire so much. Available at Designer Showcase right now it is available in 7 colors and is fit for Maitreya, Belleza, TMP, Tonic, Slink, and standard bodies. When I put this dress on I couldn’t wait to share it with everyone.

Thinking of Bette, of course, led me to look for a pose that would suit the diva and I was in luck because Something New released this awesome mic pose for TWE12VE. This set comes with the prop and pose.

The location was easy to choose as well. SAYO released these awesome backdrops for The Epiphany round in July 2017. I love backdrops, they make it so easy for me to create a stunning scene. This set has one rare and 8 commons. I just love SAYO’s backdrops because they are all like little rooms in a larger building. Fantastic work.

When I saw this newest release from Phoenix for Hairology I was so excited, it comes two different fits with a style HUD that includes 3 styles and a no bang options. I love the fitted mesh option because it bounces when you have physics on, creating a more natural hair.
