    I started to quote a stanza and then realized that I was feelin' and would need to quote every single one...
    :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    my sista when I read you, I feel as if I have bathed at ImHotep's eternal fountain of youth, eaten from the garden of AmenRa and been nourished by your Nubian knowledge... :toast: :toast: :toast:

    Oh my, oh my, oh my. Sister, as I fell in love with each line and read on, each verse became more beautiful than the last. Thank you for sharing your gift with us, and much love to you, sister.
