This is an extract from my China diaries, dated November 2000. I don't remember the specific student, but I think the article she refers to is Beijing Journal.

My student, 'Susan', and the note at the bottom of her exam paper:

'Cath, do you remember these sentences? "First light rushed through windows. Greenery and blue skies bring a breather from the night."

They are from your article. I like the sentences. I memorized them.'
