Be loved, my beloved”
I was tinkering on keys when I started with first 2 bars of the melody. I closed my eyes as I pictured the “La Mairee” by Marc Chagall. A yearning that is lost.
I was on a trip in Chang Mai and decided to watch a movie. Before the movie started, movie-goers stood up and started to sing their national anthem. I was really amazed.
Much later did I realize the people’s love for their King. A king who saw how planting opium is destroying his people. He started initiative for farmers to plant flowers instead. The King that people loved and respect.
