I (heart) James Taylor!


Yesterday we saw James Taylor receive a Lifetime Achievement Award given to him by UNC. He grew up here in Chapel Hill and was a loyal Tarheel. I am a huge fan. Ever since I was about 10.. and from then on. He is so kind and gentle, while still being an amazing guitarist and singer. He was buddies with Joni Mitchell and Cat Stevens back in the day. Seeing him at Bridge School Benefit concert in SF, was one of the best moments of my life. And then yesterday!! He gets on stage with the NC Symphony and they play "Carolina in my Mind" together. It was beautiful. His mother was in the audience, he said a couple strong words against our arch-rivals Duke, and snuck in another song. Then we all sang the school song. It was a lovely, warm, fall day. We got all dressed up and walked over to the hall. It was just perfect.
