Hump this…

good-head-hat-qui-aug7-2016This morning I woke up and I was happy about that.
I have a meeting at 10 that will equal a win and I am happy about that.

Lunch time will find me with a latte in hand, sitting on the patio where I now stand,
Mingling in good company with folks that I love; thanking my stars and my God up above.

I’m Humpin HAPPY over here – I’m so glad to be in good health.
I’llness sought me out, but my vitamin regimen helped keep me stealth.

I could use more physical activity in my life but there just aren’t enough hours in a day.
I walk about 30-minutes daily  then add on 30-minutes of elliptical play.

Hip! Hip! Hooray! I’m open to dancing and considering indoor hiking.
My mind is open and my body is hoping the opportunity will yield to its liking.

You see, I’m not an athlete, I’m a writer, a chic with a camera and tripod.
My nails may not be acrylic’d out nor is the gym etched in my bod. lol!

I’m a pretty active chic – I’m always on the go and hauling equipment with.
I usually show up to film the show, hi-5 and throw in a few cool quips.

I’m the chic enjoying her day for everything that it is and everything that it is not.
I’m Qui
Staying inside for most of the day, because ol’ Phoenix is pretty hot.

Regardless of the outside temps- I’m Humpin HAPPY over here!
I bid you good energy that you’ll need for that #WIN that’s near.

Speaking wisdom is a delight though #CommonSense could save your life:

For those who love that classic touch – if Lois Lane went Black, would SUPERMAN still love?

superman-blk-lois-lane-comicsripJust when it seemed honest esteem could be achieved, regardless of race, creed, or name —
in a #selfish effort to win a Pulitzer Prize – into the darkness slipped Lois Lane.

I don’t know why this printed piece lacks its due comic historic fame
but if you’re interested in reading more, I’ll print more frame-by-frame.

The writers of this clip were pretty good and very much “spot on.”
I don’t suppose this piece was the piece to which they’d hang their legacy on. 

Perhaps it should it be revisited.
A More Complete REPRINT of this comic will be posted on Friday 9/2/16

Remember BLONDIE, I used to read them religiously every weekend –
and chilling at the water cooler with Mr. Dithers is like hanging with an old friend:blondie-comic-strip1
That is, if the old friend was “the corporate world roam.”
Yes! That was back then, my friend — now I “water cool” at home. 😀

However, if I am needed in the board room today I am confident that “they” will email, text or page…

The point is, there are MANY POINTS in life that can connect us or even ‘make the case’, like this clip “BETWEEN FRIENDS” – There’s nothing comparrable to feeling like you #Relate:

And with that being said, I confess my love to relate to you
in the #HumanThings that you and I are prone to.

 

We are not at all perfect, so let not evolution be jaded.
Sometimes it’s good to stop being too serious and go

Are you with me? I’m with you, and not all cartoons are purposed to be #BLANK and forgotten in a #BLINK.

and in other words, comics are destined to be funny, though I love the ones that require you to #THINK.

It came back GOOD.

karmasI wasn’t sure how this would go,
he said hi, I said hello

then that other chic showed up. You know, that one from the sto?’
And she said, “Pardon me” – cause she was on CPT,
once in place though, we were good to go.

At the table we sat.
It was business we spat.
I wore “the pitchers hat” I have writes to sell.
She gave me the floor and Itook them there,” for a spell.

Itook them there” for quite a while.
Their eyes bright; involuntary smiles.

I held them there a longer while
my creative wields were about me, child.
I hooked ’em so far right – it almost looked like a foul.
I pitched and I pitched and I pitched a while.

In the end, we shook hands and good Lord,
I’ve found new literary work in my back yard.

I used to travel far and wide and God know I’ve looked hard.
So used to sharing my copyrighted scripts with AP’s with high guards.

Yesterday I was young but hardly dumb and reaped new wisdom – where I stood.
Life has never been too simple though the rewards, my God, are GOOD.

Who knew that lady luck would cross me earlier when, for her, I opened the door.
She was that chic that was in rush earlier today – at my favorite specialty store.

She was in a crazy rush, and I, well, not so much.
I thought the least I could do was hold the door – a little convenient love.

She passed by and went inside, then stopped to look back at me.
I smiled and got in line behind her, then she exhibited a grateful she.

She said, “Thank you so much for your kindness.” I said anytime sister.
Because chivalry isn’t dead you see — and it doesn’t solely belong to ‘the mister.’

She was the producer, I was to meet later on – she’s been in a rush all day.
She’s not from the metroplex and was embarrassed by her delay.

My meeting was the last on her schedule chart.
The day had been long & full — and then I stole her heart.

I send out good vibes every time I walk out of the front door.
Karma can be a sweetheart if the details of life are not your bore.

Stop waiting for someone to get the door for you, get the door for yourself.
No one is going to write your story. What’s your route to good health and wealth?

My writings are diverse and they certainly stand true,
I’m Qui
and KARMA is real, being good to someone else is pretty much being good to YOU.
