I can remember how I felt listening to "Falling Out of Love" as I experienced a divorce... I remember thinking, yes, that is how it is. I remember the emotions I felt as I heard him sing "Flying For Me" when we lost our astronauts. I remember listening to "Matthew" and thinking about my own favorite uncle. I remembered my childhood and family gatherings as he sang "Grandma's Feather Bed".
So much of his music awakens emotions deep within me as, I think, it does for others. I think this was the magic of many of his songs and much of his music...he was able to write about the things we all experience and feel in a way that we could not.
I still listen...the magic is still there...he is still my favorite singer, song writer.
