James Taylor sings
“In my mind I’m going to Carolina. Can’t you see the sunshine, can’t you just feel the moonshine?
Ain’t it just like a friend of mine to hit me from behind? Yes, I’m going to Carolina in my mind.”

I can’t sing, but I love songs, and James Taylor is an old favorite of mine. This is a rough out from Mitch Cartledge, who lives in North Carolina, and since he didn’t provide a title for this guy, I had to come up with something! James Taylor wrote the song while he was in London, perhaps longing for the place he called home in his childhood days. Happy memories, so strong you can see it and feel it, so real it makes you smile. When the rains come, I like to remember happy places and happy times. If you see me smile at an inappropriate time, I may have just went to Carolina in my mind! Thanks for looking!
