    If you want and deserve more, this is the package for you. Imagine it: I will sign your CD, add two of my favorite Chinese snack foods to your order and give you a tour poster featuring the album cover artwork.

    About the snacks: Do you like when sweet and salty meet? I will send you two "Kiss-burn" snacks. What is it? It is a meatless jerky made from gluten. That may not get you excited on its own...but the spices? Divine. Your mouth will delight with the perfect blend of sweet, salty and a hint of spicy. You are getting two because immediately after eating one you will think, "I can't wait to eat the other one later." 'Later' will be moments later when you think, "Oh hell, I want it now."

about

The first song I wrote in China. It was recorded after deflecting the words "I love you" from my students with canned responses such as "You are so sweet!" "Thank you so much!". What I realized was that I thought about them all the time and that my feelings of pride, worry, disappointment, happiness, and joy were so intense. It was absolute love. The song is my declaration of love to them and what they mean to me. The recording was made as I realized these things and really captures a real moment.

lyrics

I’ll play the role of someone that you already know
When you’re far from home, I’ll know where you are
What’s new to me is the way I’m starting to feel
And how quickly you led me to a warmer light

Honest-there’s nothing in the world I know
Like this-feeling confirming what I’d hoped:
That I love you and you love me

A gesture so sweet, I tried to act professionally
But I can’t hide how I feel and I guess that that’s alright
I’m worried about all the changes looming now
And I hope you- find your way to happy life

Honest-there’s nothing in the world I know
Like this-feeling confirming what I’d hoped:
That I love you and you love me
