And then there was LUKE CAGE

meet-luke-cageand I was like Hold up! Wait!” I appreciate a black man in my face who feels NO PAIN,
not even in the form of metal bullet tips from clips that reign.

Mike Colter is A-OK in this NETFLIX series.  Have you seen his work?
The writing alone is pretty strong and could invoke a Sapeosexual to twerk.

The relativity of the set, the scene the crew…
The relativity to my hood and the things that we do.

I saw the barber shop and pops – I saw the gun-toting thugs on the outside.
I saw Luke Cage shield a young customer from bullets on the night that Pops died.

In script – I was hurt, but this is what homage building is all about
The loss of Pops was the exact cost – needed to bring Super Hero LUKE CAGE out.

CULT Potential: STOUT. I love the way it’s all playing out.
With the way things are going-on near and around my home,
we could use a LUKE CAGE on the Phoenix route.

Superman and Batman aren’t the only ones that show up and turn out.

Whether he’s at the jiz, in his crib or on the streets
Luke Cage is quite the view — even briefly in the sheets

He and the detective….I liked it.

Just when I thought I’d composed my 2016 list of series thrills from scripted page
I am introduced by Fab5Freddy, to this new fella LUKE CAGE.

Fab was on the set of,  when he hit me up to ‘hook & rope her,’
he said he was on the LUKE CAGE set with his friend Cheo Hodari Coker.

The series writer.
What an exciter!

The mind is a great find
and this one has a NETFLIX rewind.

I’m sitting here yielding my time
to Cokers writ like a 9 to 5.

Yep! Yep! Give me Five on the Black Hand Side – I’m loving every minute.
And to put another cherry on this treat, there’s a Fab Five cameo in it.

I reckon that’s why he was on set, it’s good to know good people everwhere.
The Unfair Advantage is just that – fantastically unfair.🙂

Me? I’m hooked on the view. They’ve got me. I’m their chic!
I’m Qui
A LUKE CAGE – she and I’ve got a ‘thang with NETFLIX.

They’re on their –ish.

Water Cooler Chat

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on October 24, 2016 at 4:35 am

Water Cooler ChatWater Cooler Chat…

it’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

It’s good, it’s relevant and all of it isn’t about “the news,”
It isn’t post November 8th yet —  and this is not a NEWS PERUSE.🙂

Good morning baby. I stay up, awake and aware
so let’s talk about Love and War – where all is fair.

LIFE. That’s a good place to start.
What’s been going on with the GOOD of your heart?

Have you been good to yourself? Here lies the true measure of a self lover:
we know we have to be good to us FIRST before we can be of any use to others.

But you knew that. Right? Because we hang out all of the time.
Are you still on your AFFIRMATIONS, starting your day with a shine

of encouragement and meditation? It’s our support as the day grinds on.
Life ain’t no crystal stair, still we hold our own.

I love being grown. Love is what I’m into.
I confess I love me some me and I love me some YOU.

What on earth are we going to do if everyone starts feeling like me?
‘Mess around and Earth will become a place of tolerance and unity.

Ooo Wee. Kiss me. Let me infect your mood.
Then you pay-it-forward and kiss that dude in brood.

Not “physically kiss” him – but by all means do something nice.
Life can be a boring Mrs. if we don’t yield the proper spice.

Yeah. I’m a pay-it-forward lady, I go to Starbucks just to see how much it will cost me
to stand in line behind ahead of a party of 9 and pick up the tab for their coffee.

It is  a little scary but so far I’ve been blessed.
No one has overly taken advantage of the “pay-it-forward” test.

People are kind and for the most part we mean well,
but when we’re PO’d — all of that “wellness”  goes to hell.

WAR. It ain’t pretty.
And the once smooth pavement is now tarnished and gritty.

Disagreements… they happen and they are natural, in fact.
Though it’s how you handle them that will separate you from the pack



Disagreements can cause the bear to come out in even the cutest cub
and make it difficult for you to remember ‘to love’ or render a necessary hug.

I get it. I hate disagreements but them I’m not always coy
when it comes to voicing my opinion or making a point.

Anywho relationships are at stake
when we handle WAR the wrong way.

Being on ‘the outs’ only means that somewhere there is an ‘IN,’
so when you’re on ‘the out’s’ – stop and look for the new begin.

Don’t spend any unnecessary time arguing with the people that you love.
Life is unpredictable and fragile — ALWAYS opt for the hug.

Give no time at all to arguing with folks you don’t know,
that’s when your weakness and powerlessness shows.

If you’re in control then don’t throw bows but DO always walk away.
If you are out of control – walk away quickly with a runners sway.😉

WAR is rarely an option. Life is about prevailing with cooler heads.
You’re neighbor is more than that, but your beloved who shares your bed.

We breathe same air and drink the same water as well.
If you harm your neighbor — all will go to hell.

Whether he be next door or half way around the world…
Suck up and the be the bigger person – forfeit being “the little girl.”

and let beauty from chaos be released.

Ooo wee, I’m hardly thirsty -I just hang out at this Cooler to Chat,
I’m Qui
Made of 71% Water, I’m the griots daughter – pulling from a well not a vat.



Water is key.

Mondays Right

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on October 17, 2016 at 7:41 am

good-head-hat-qui-aug7-2016It’s 2:30am and I’m up again
Everyone’s asleep, all family, pets, friends.

This is the way that I get when I’m excited
Insomnia’s about me and I’m UP to write it.

Book ideas bouncing on lobes, titles of ignite….
The creative mind of Qui is always in mode to write.

And so under dim light I’m up to hammer on this page
While replays of “The evening news” recap on yesterday.

Kind of makes me want to produce a NEWS PERUSE,
But it’s mostly politics — is it something you can use?

If you’re still on the fence about who to vote for
I pray thee clarity and rank – in the majority score.

Many days pending before the election are no more.
November 8 is the date – some will be winners, others sore.

Some are crying foul before they step up to the plate…
A NEWS PERUSE will be my post elections fate.

I’ll be up early tacking down the seams
Of how the voting roping went – and what the people mean…

imagepngIt’s not cold in Arizona and I don’t wear fur.

It’s cold that some would suggest I do otherwise,
Still I respect your vote, your mind and your life. ❤️

We’re all in this together -we’ve got to come through this alright.
Did I tell you I respect you? Politics is just an accessory to Life.

Don’t take anything too serious today, it’s a fun day.
No NEWS PERUSE to fuse on our beloved Monday.

So the Cowboys won again and again I was in my seat.
Not the #NoseBleedSection in Ag-Town, I was #home watching in HD. 🤗

Last week’s reality in Dallas was absolutely the best
— I’m not picky but it’s ‘less  sticky’ in the Southwest:


Monday is the Right day to pull it all together.
I’m up before dawn in this fabulous weather.

The mature trees in my view – mountain top skew but I know
There are no limits to where natures beauty and truths go.

I love it. It’s perfect and I’m thankful for my sight,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, this is YOUR DAY. It’s Mondays Right.


My morning view…. Naturally beautiful.
