Gravity rules the universe. There would be no Earth, no solar system, no sun or stars or galaxies without gravity.

Gravity is attraction. The earth is pulling on the moon, keeping it close. The sun keeps tugging at the planets. Galaxies spin in infinity in its grasp. Gravity holds everything together.

Newton enlightened. Einstein clarified and corrected. And smiled.

What gravity is to the cosmos is what love is to the human experience. Love brings people together, puts hearts in orbit around each other. Connects and binds. Builds community and family.

It can be defied, with great effort if not with Saturn V rockets. It gives order and chaos at the same time.

We all are connected, biologically and cosmically. We are star stuff, held together and propelled onward by love and gravity.
