Sherry Doreen, I am so glad you enjoyed FOUR SISTERS, ALL QUEENS!


message 9: by Jesse

Jesse Hanson Namaste Doreen, Bristol boYZ Stomp looks like it would be very interesting. I'm way behind in my reading so I can't, in integrity, add it right now, though I hope that, if your situation is different from mine, you might consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list.
Best wishes for your work and in all ways, jesse
