I spend a lot of time on my own. Hours of alone time in the studio, in my car on a long commute, or even in crowded rooms with friends. No matter where I am, I am always in my thoughts and having a constant conversation with myself.Recently, I began to analyze who I am now in comparison to who I was a little over a year ago.

It is, in some theories, the Universe itself.So, if God is Love, and God is the Universe, then wouldn’t it make sense that the Universe itself, something we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of when it comes to its exploration, is actually love?My happiness comes from love, much like
