Illuminations of Love and Connection

Today, November 15th, Josh Groban’s album Illuminations is now out in stores for you to purchase. I have my copy coming to me in the mail and I am excited to have the actual copy.

You can’t love when you are feeling weighted down with fear because it clouds your perception, your emotions and your capacity to give as well as receive. Some of the lines from the songs to show this are as follows: Bells of New York City “…The bells of NYC tell me not to go… stay with me, stay with me, refuge from these broken dreams, wait right here, awake with me on silent snow filled streets… the bells of NYC calling me to stay.” (This is a home calling as the energy of NYC magnetizes the voice in this song to stay, to awake right there…there is an awareness and...
