I wrote this tune in Brian Pickell's composition class at Goderich 2002. Literally -- he scattered us around the school each day to work on our tunes. This one was composed on the front lawn.

Since it was written for class, I wanted to do something a bit fancy -- change key. I knew of a bunch of tunes that went from minor to major, so I went from major to minor. Turns out that normal Western music encourages us to expect the shift to minor to be temporary, so this tune always wants to go around to the beginning again. That made me think of Stephanie Cornelius, who is usually so busy doing stuff that she seems an unstoppable force of nature.
