For many people, music can be an escape from the pains and stressors of life. It speaks to your soul in a way that connects and helps us share experiences. From the first time author Rebecca Lyn Gold heard the song “Fire and Rain” by American singer-songwriter and guitarist James Taylor, she felt like someone understood her. And knew she was not alone.

Rebecca is an author, editor, and the founder of Yogic Writing™, a practice that utilizes the philosophies and disciplines of yoga, meditation and journaling to help writers of all levels to heal, reveal and leave a legacy through writing life stories. Since she was just 13 years old, James Taylor’s music, his poetry, his soul, and his generosity has impacted Rebecca and has been a source of inspiration and healing throughout her life. In 2015, Rebecca created a Facebook page, Life With James Taylor, to gather with other fans and share how his music has enriched their lives. During the long months at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, she was comforted by his music and began collecting some of her favorite anecdotes from fans around the world to create “That's Why We're Here” to share these heartfelt stories.

This dedication and anthology to their favorite artist reveal the many ways James Taylor and his music has touched the lives of listeners. From seeking solace and healing through songs dealing with death and grief to riding the waves of illness and recovery to experiencing the sheer joy of seeing James in concert (for the first time for the fiftieth), these stories are full of hope, love, friendship and connection. It is a tribute and a thank you to James Taylor, as well as an affirmation of our common humanity.
