I wish I could have this performance playing right here on this page. Alison Kraus singing James Taylor’s ‘Carolina In My Mind’. She sings it so beautifully.
Here is an early video of James Taylor singing ‘Carolina In My Mind’ when it was a new song and he was still shy when performing. This is the way I heard this song sung, hundreds of times I’m sure, when I was growing up.
Two items, both related to music, both related to creative persons who have died:
Ring of Fire – Johnny and June Carter Cash’s lake home burned to the ground.
Minstrel Boy remembers Vonnegut with this quote:
No Matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful.
If I should die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph:
THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED
FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
I never heard of Roy Zimmerman before today.I’ve watched this video half a dozen times, typed and erased a slew of comments, and I can’t think of a thing to add.Check it out. See for yourself.

UPDATE: The comments for this post are all posts in their own right. Please take some time and look through them. Today, May 15, 2007, the day of Jerry Falwell’s death, I have posted a letter (with permission) by Marc Adams of HeartStrong.org about how his experiences with Jerry Falwell and Liberty University inspired him to start HeartStrong.org (http://heartstrong.org/).
