Composer's Notes

   Composed in 2009 in JIangxi Nanchang, this is the first song Don wrote in China after he moved there. It is a love song that can be interpreted in several ways: Is it about a person? Is it about a teacher's concern for students? Is it about a love of China? Perhaps it is a combination of one or more... Regardless, it was inspired by his Chinese friend Helen Guan.
