Stop, In the Name of Love

In 1965, The Supremes released “Stop! In The Name Of Love.” In a search for a song that everyone knew, I stumbled upon this classic. While 1965 was 22 years before I was born, I’m not sure I’ve ever met someone who doesn’t know the catchy song. It’s the kind of song that gets stuck in your head, and that’s exactly what happened to me. No matter how hard I tried to think of another love song, all that was going through my head was “Stop! In the name of love, before you break my heart!” Creating this graphic made me go over the meaning of “The Name of Love” several times. Having not a clue how to describe that to another person, led me to create “THENAMEOFLOVE,” an exit off of the highway of life that you could choose to take or choose to ignore. Life is full of decisions and one of them is if you choose to let yourself fall in love. Will you choose that exit or keep driving through life? It’s your choice.
