No story of our marriage could leave out the fact that we spent a couple of years in North Carolina — a beautiful state with some of the most screwed-up politics in America. It also was a long way away from our families and the climate we like best, neither of us found ideal jobs, and we were troubled by the overt racism common in the town where we lived for much of the time, so it wasn’t our favorite two years.

But James Taylor is one of Joanna’s favorite performers. And I suspect that he only way she will willingly go back to North Carolina in in her mind.
