The Power of Love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a hawk to a little white dove
More than a feeling
That’s the Power of Love
~ Huey Lewis & The News ~
When this tune first hit the airwaves back in the 80s, I was hooked!
With it’s catchy beat, I would blast it loud and hard not paying any
real attention to the song’s title….The Power of Love.
Not the weakness of love.
Not the obsessiveness of love.
Not the oh my gawd he gets on my damn ass nerves kind of love.
The Power of Love.
Diagnosed as a “powerful neurological condition”,
Love is a force which can move mountains in it’s purest form.
I’ve said it before in my entry Spiritualism and I’ll say it again…
‘Tis all about Love, Precious.
Now that you’re all warm and fuzzy,
I’d like to draw your attention to the second part of this entry’s title.
The Fashion For Change part.
Womankind Worldwide is a little known International charity,
which does profoundly important work helping to challenge discrimination,
inequality and violence towards women in the developing world.
It provides support to local women’s organizations in these countries
as they fight to improve women’s rights and the lives of women in
Africa, Asia and South America.
Fashion For Change (FFC), is a virtual world charity event sponsored by
The Best of Second Life (BOSL) and Miss Virtual World (MVW).
Open until April 25th, FFC is a fantastic two week shopping,
entertainment and high fashion spectacular designed to raise funds strictly for Womankind Worldwide.
Not into Second Life or any other virtual worlds, for that matter?
Not a problem. You still can participate.
Go directly to the Womankind site, read all about them and if you would like to support their cause, hit the yellow ‘Give a Gift’ button on the home page.
I have dedicated my time to capturing images of the exclusive designs created by well-known Second Life designers for FFC — designers who are
graciously donating 50% and more from each sale.
So, for the next several posts, I will bring to you Haute Couture along with words of encouragement as we put the Power of Love in action ♥
