A Message From Freyja: Pretty Is Not The Same As Beautiful

EmberVoices: Listening for the Vanir

“Pretty” is not the same as “Beautiful”. “Pretty” has rules. “Pretty” has consequences. “Pretty” can tear you apart, flaw by flaw, and destroy you from the inside out.

“Pretty” can also raise you up, when it’s a path to “Beautiful”.

Sometimes I find a sequence of songs that tell a story that I need to hear, or need to share.

Here’s a story for you, in music from four powerful, pretty, beautiful women, about the difference between “Pretty” and “Beauty”, and why it hurts to confuse them. (For more of my own thoughts on the topic, read on after watching!)
