Speaking of amazing songs…LOVE this one! Daft Punk and Pharrell need to partner for a full album already! Love that someone put the song to old Soul Train footage (ironically to a Stevie Wonder tune! haha) I hope that you enjoy this one! :) <3

THE UNIVERSE IS EXPRESSING ITSELF THROUGH YOU

“Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life.
