BLURB

If I could pluck you up and drop you down in any other time throughout history they’d have built monuments and fought wars over you. The Taj Mahal might’ve had your face carved in that translucent white Makrana marble. The Huaca El Brujo might today be the Huaca El you. The sphinx would maybe be towering with your gorgeous likeness, the Bilikisu Sungbo filled with your singing praises etched on every wall. Paris of Troy would have barely glanced at Helen had you been in the room, busy and flustered running through pick-up lines in the bathroom, Sparta might still have been Sparta today. Li Zicheng may have never taken Chen Yuanyuan from those Manchurians warriors, he’d be struggling to make you smile at the fanciest joints in Beijing. Princess Bilqees Bhaghi would’ve only been the second best gift idea for Sultan Allauddin had your name been on those match-makers' minds. Young woman, you wait for no one promising this or that. Someone will come along and move a mountain or two with your name on their breath. The whole world will wait for you. [Ryan Nimmo]
