I've always been a fan of Bette Midler's version of From a Distance. The instrumental version is playing as I write. It touches my heart and soul every time.
This song was written by Julie Gold in 1985. It was first recorded by Nanci Griffith in 1987. It became a hit when Bette Midler introduced it in 1990. However you interpret its meaning, Julie Gold said for her it meant that things sometimes appear differently than they really are.
Sending you blessings from my heart to yours!
