    Extrordinary cerebral stimulation!

    Teacher/Poet, thanks for the history lesson and the his-story journey, sometimes dark and enigmatic I was draw into the 20 qestions myself...What if we never forgot that we came from Kings and Queens? This was absolutely stimulating...my brain is still tingling...
    Blessings On Ya House!
