I love James Taylor. He is something of an icon of what a man should be to me in a weird way. My dad liked him very much as did my brother and I who would sing along in the truck as my dad played air piano on the dashboard.
Shel Silverstein is somehow also in this category for me. I guess I like a poet with a guitar.

Thanks, River,- that made me well up a little and I appreciate the sentiment.
