James Taylor's voice is a summer evening with the stars bright and just a little humidity so the tones hang in the air. Here I am sitting in great seats looking down at James and Carole King. I am in Charlotte with my sisters and one of my best friends by my side. Life is so good. The stage is slowly moving in a circle and I can't help but think how my life is moving too. The opening song? "Blossom there is a song inside me..take these chains away" - James Taylor Carol King wrote many of his songs and how could he not want to sing, "From a garden of wisdom, from a long ago dream" -Carole King Music has always been a huge part of my life. A life without music for me would be a dull place. It helps me think...always has. This year, upon advice from a good friend, I turned my formal library that I never went in (but it looked good) into a music room. Less like a "music room" with instruments but more like the old 80's poster of the guy sitting in a chair in front of a speaker with his hair blowing backward. I recovered my grandmother's comfortable barrel chairs in a rich deep purple velvet and I love that room now. A place to contemplate and to hear words of an old song that I have been listening to for years and years but only now do I understand. "In between what might have been and what has come to past are just bits of broken glass" - James Taylor Get James Taylor and Carole Kings new CD The Troubadour. It is good. Life is good. Happy summer.
