Hump this…

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Self Improvement on August 31, 2016 at 6:37 am

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.

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.

boomerang

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.

Sipping…

sipping-lemons-wisdom
Life is full of apples, pears, bananas and lemon trees
butterflies, knats, flies, mosquitos and bees.

All belong to nature and work well together
most strive in spring and summer, vacating during winter weather.

Ah. You’ve gotta love the variety of nature for it shapes the spices of life.
Like your bouquet of family and friends – some bear love and some yield strife.

You embrace the status quo, because it is the constant that is always given
and that’s cool, if you do – but don’t let it alter your productive livin.’

Thank God for the honey, then cut and slice those lemons
and put them in a cup of hot water and receive your healin.’

Sip those darn lemons slow and let them benefit you.
Then make a nice bowl of sliced and cut-up mixed fruit.

It really is ALL GOOD – if you know what to do with each one.
Some you’ll keep for love and some you’ll lose after the fun.

Life is quite lovely and flavorful because of its many fruits.
Trees will come and go though you’re DNA code remains your roots.

If you find a familial tree whose fruit suits not your taste,
It’s not your tree, so let it be and carry on with grace.

Embrace what you learn and don’t forget to always open up to love;
Observe the green of your produce; vibrate higher – expand towards the sun.

You can infuse any fruit with water, be it the meat sweet or sour.
I take the fruits that life gives me and juice them with prayer power.

Mmmmm. Good stuff.

I love to sip those lemons and sauce-the-apples when I can,
I’m Qui
Quite fond of the various fruits of the land.
The good and the bad go hand-in-hand.

GREENLEAF

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, TV Shows on August 19, 2016 at 6:06 am

greenleaf-castf
The other day I had a couple of quiet hours alone
so I kicked back and put channel 279 on.

I have DIRECTV, so that channel is OWN
and the drama that resonated was good to the bone.

GREENLEAF is the show and though its coming to a close – its first season,
It’s PRIME SOAP and melanin dope;  the cast of players yield familial reason.

There’s Lynn Whitfield, Keith David, Lamman Rucker and Tye White
as well as Kim Hawthorne, Merle Dandridge and Madam “Oprah” Dynamite.

The familial situations and the scrip writing is out of sight.
I watched a couple of episodes back-to-back that night

and easily so.
It was so good that I absolutely couldn’t let go.

So I watched
and tick tock went the clock

as the Bishops family fell apart…
this, in the first seasons start.

greenleaf-bishop-1st-ladyGREENLEAF is the family, their faith and professions are in the church.
Prayer is hailed for healing – they pray for others, but they, themselves, are hurt.

Keith David is the Bishop, you remember him from SOMETHING ABOUT MARY?
The way this man transitions in roles is quite believable and errily scary.

He plays his part as if he’s playing no part at all;
his house of clergy is exposed and threatens to fall.

Lynn Whitfield is the Bishops wife and first lady. She’s classy from A to Z.
She walks soft, but you can tell she’s the domestic boss and reigns proper in her scenes.

Ooo y’all! Please tell me that I’m the last one to find this gem.
I pray that you’re watching, I love the scripted hymns.

If this show were not so fantastically WRITTEN we could call this a reality show.
In the face of the truth kudos to the writing team. I’m hooked and ready to go…

find this series in satellite broadcast do a religious re-run
because this season is “already in progress” and is almost done.

Catching up can be fun and on DirecTV it’s free.
I’m Qui
enjoying my OWN tv and the innards of the mega church via GREENLEAF.

ENERGY

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement, Video on August 17, 2016 at 8:17 am

3-major-roller-coasters So I was feeling some kind-of-way last Wednesday,
The kind-of-way that made me want to go out and play.

So I packed my bags to get ghost- alas. Then “Adios!” I did say.
I arrived at Magic Mountain on Friday to roller coaster slay!

And I did.
If FEAR was with me, she was a chick that hid.

I rode hard and for what time alotted, I rode them all.
I approached the front cars without contemplation or stall.

I rode them #LikeABOSS y’all, in 99 degree heat.
I kept my hands up and I had no interests in grounding my feet.

I was ISO of more ENERGY. I was curious to know how it works
and if I needed to — could I use a roller coaster to personal ENERGY twerk?

My energy wave was deep, it was not the kind that I value or keep in stock.
So I counter weighted that energy with g-forces and I’ll be ding-dong! It stopped.

The energy wave –that is. The energy that I did not want.
I left it at Six Flags to roller coast haunt.

I couldn’t believe it worked. I used energy to counter balance the same.
The roller coasters that helped me – I’d like to list them by name:

x2

The Viper
The Riddler
Tatsu
Batman
The Green Hornet
X2

I also road THE NINJA; the line was impressively long.
I put fear aside and got in line to ride strong.

Here’s a video review I made. Watch it if bravity is in ya!
The name of this ride was (la sleeper aka) THE NINJA:

Qui on THE NINJA

The ENERGY experiment worked so well that I bought a season pass!
I’m Qui
good morning to thee – if energy is not good let go like gas.

I did and I had a blast!

DOPE.

dope-bday-qui-2016What is it?
Is it a feeling, is it a drug?
Is it addictable, like my )))HUGS(((?

These shoulders shrug, I think it’s an emotion.
I feel dope when I meditate; when I give praise in devotion.

I feel dope when you feel me. I love to connect.
Sometimes dope is vindication after being unjustly vexed.

Dope is your DNA. Look at your hair, skin and nails.
Stay healthy, be fit, shoot “antagony” to hell.

Dope is that good feeling, you want to inhale
when the Doc comes back and says your diagnostic is swell.

I’m on a HIGH. I stay high. I live for the life of it — with no choke.
I’m unlimited in my charted quests; I don’t scare easy. It’s DOPE to VOTE!

There’s always hope in my mind and there’s always room to grow.
Dope is ditching negativity and sticking with those who meet your lobes.

This method is effective MORE than the strongest smoke.
I dig the “intellectual relate” – I give and receive; No choke.

I don’t cough either– I say what I mean,
I’m Qui
and this is a HIGH DAY for me. DOPE is all about me.
Oooo Weee!

If you see me in the streets
throw a shout-out to me.
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY
and that is

Nothing-makes-me-happier Because I’m always HAPPY

All week long, I have been on a high
I’ve laughed so hard until I cried.

My fam is blessed, see no one died.
Life is not promised. I’m glad to be alive.

My children are safe, their rooms are… their own.
I’ve got an SUV full of gas and a cool, peaceful home.

There are a few Tubmans in the bank – so all is well and fine.
It’s actually quite chilly outside [72 temp nigh], thus I wont be all-day online.

Shopping: I’ve found a cute pair of  tie-up sandals, whose price is  way too fair.
They would look great with my new skirt, my complexion and hair.

I’ll be in the AZ today Happy ENERGY grinning.
FOCUSING on the moment; maintaining my “WINNING!Qui_2008Love

Yes! I’ll be talking to my neighbors, patrons in the mall and on the streets

It’s a blistering Summer day in the valley of Chandler.
The heat is hell but I’m from Texas – I can handle her.

Big thangs are happenin’ and big things are on the horizon.
I’ve snagged another client whose in the throws of success collidin‘.

Another board is in formation – another business is on the lucrative reap.
Another successful connection sealed – another think tank – another seat.

Today is a player day, I told old mundane to hit the brig;
Slow Boogie is a rookie, so I told him to “Get lost kid,

you bug me, don’t hug me,” and on my way I went.
The Bogart HUMP is an aggressive and progressive bend.

I like the feel, it’s calling me to pop my collar
My hat is so sharp, it’ll make your daddy holla!

The ORANGE August MOON

In Communication, Griot, Music, Self Improvement, Video on August 8, 2016 at 4:48 am

.

Surely you know the song. I love it and I can’t wait to jam it again on August 18th. August 18th is the next day that The ORANGE MOON will be in Phoenix. How beautiful it is. I’m not at all superstitious or know of any wives tales connecting to it, I am merely a fan of its visual beauty. I can’t wait to see it again. Its next debut will be 3-days after my birthday. That’s right internet fam’ – it’s LEO SEASON and I’m on the reflect. Reflecting you…

How good it is
How good it is
How good it is
How God is.

MEOW.
Good morning baby. Life is good.
Thanks for dropping by my hood.
Comprehend the moves – so that they are understood.leo_tongue-passion
Then whittle what you want out of LIFE – craft it, like it’s wood.
You can do it I’m duly watching.
And unless God calls ya home — ain’t no stopping.

RAWR.
Be bold in your moves after careful consideration.
Don’t let emotions be the thing that leads you your chief relation.
Be a general in this thing, recognize all moves and place your bet.
Push on towards #TheWin and keeps your lobes wet.
Whatever it is that you want out of LIFE, you have the authority to go and get.
Time is of the essence and non-refundable. Are you ready? Get on you mark, get set…

CIAO.
Once the race has begun for that thing that you want out of LIFE
remember nothing worth having will come for a short or FREE price.
That includes love. It doesn’t cost money, but it does cost your earnest time.
Time is non-refundable and Love is free —  but costs more than dimes.

Don’t forget it.
If it weren’t true, I wouldn’t have spit it.
LIFE is at hand. You best go and GET IT.
Evolution puts you on top. Be brave -Don’t fret it.

Today is a new day and I’m happy about it fam,’
I’m Qui
It’s #LeoSeason and I feel — I’ve got every reason
to let my hair down and not give a damn! 😀

However, this is not that time for me. Today I’ll  just post my say.
I’ll “not give a damn and let my hair down” on my beloved birthday.

In the meantime I’m rocking the tunes of the Orange Moon.
This season brings with it a jazzy swoon.

#Smile @ me.
