I have been a Neil Diamond fan for many years.
One day while living in Southern California I was at my brother's home visiting with my nephew. He was excited about Neil Diamond and wanted me to listen to one of his songs---"I Am I Said."
I didn't really understand the song but I liked it immediately.
That was over five decades ago and I have been listening to Neil belt out his songs ever since.
One night while living in Northern California friends took Charlotte and me to San Francisco to a Neil Diamond concert. It was a wonderful evening. We loved every minute of it and it has lived in our memory.
Last night when he was honored with popular artists performing his songs, I felt a tug on my heart and moisture in the corner of my eyes.
I don't worship Neil---not even close to it, but I do love to hear him sing!
