Measures of a MONDAY

I have a few C’s to talk about today:

CUBS
COWBOYS
CHAPPELLE

2 of the C’s are winners and one not so much.
Two took home Neilson Ratings and one’s getting no love.

What the, What-What?
Let’s start off with THE LOVE:
cubs-winCONGRATULATIONS to The CUBS!I’m so happy for you!
Your fans across the land are reveling in your due. ;

The last time folks felt this way about ya, it was 1908.
“The curse” provided the thirst that you used to The World Series take.

You did THAT. You took THE WORLD SERIES bat for bat!
Honestly – the Indian fans probably aren’t even that mad.

A ‘honey years’ is a hundred years and you have pulled through well.
The curse was just extended rehearse; CONGRATS! You guys looked swell!

qui-82witten-nov-2016I felt the good vibes from CUBS LOVE all the way in the A-Z.
Not to mention their old training facility is just up the street from me.

Still there’s more love for another C of which I am fanatically happy to voice,
there’s a 7-1 record that’s duly being upheld by the COWBOYS.
I enjoyed yesterdays win, I grinned and enjoyed the good vibes.
Good energy is key for you and me – it’s the sweetener of #Life.

Go COWBOYS!! It’s good to be UP since we certainly know what it feels like to be down.
Yesterday was rad, my jersey made me the target of jabs – still our WIN didn’t yield me to clown.

Clowning is rarely necessary so you tell me ‘what the hell…?
I heard Trump was recently being pumped up by Dave CHAPPELLE?

My #HalfBaked homie is going rogue on me? Please say it ain’t so?
Morning news report the ranting sort was a kind of  “fart in the face” –  NO.

Okay, I’m padave-chappelle-blast-clinton-gimmickraphrasing – yo, but still.
Click the link and read the stink – I guess he’s expressing his ‘real?’’

He’s mad at Hill because he thinks she leaked the tape
that boasted about Trump grabbing pussy, by consent – NOT rape.

What?!? Dave are you, too, a pussy grabbing star?
Your debate makes me think you can relate – and for you SNITCHING is going too far.

For that– you get no “hardy-har-har‼️🙃

However Dave conjured up the Clinton jeer – God bless him and wow!
I guess it is what it is, perhaps he’s focused on his biz –
and he surely isn’t smoking weed now.

Relating to Trump’ is not a symptom of smoking weed.😀

Up to Measure this Monday by the rule of a few C’s.
2 to 1, the weight is on #TheGood and that works well for me.

Yoda and Yoga

The two have more in common than just the sound of their name. Both are in a relationship with the force of the body and wisdom. I’m not a die hard STAR WARS fan but I do love Yoda.

When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.”

Yoda, Return of the Jedi

wise-is-yoda

Very true that quote is, which is exactly why I’m on the chase to sculpt my body into
something fantastic this year. I’m quite excited fitness. I’ve been working out on an average of 6-days a week. I could probably stand to cut back, but honestly, it’s not strenuous workouts. I hone an elliptical machine for no less than 65-minutes straight each morning. If the latter of the day permits me time, I squeeze in an even lower impact 20 (+) additional minutes– (moderate walking speed). The elliptical machine works my arms and legs simultaneously and the caloric burn is unreal. So I wasn’t put off when I started to get a little lower back aggravation.
Working out 6-days a week is nothing to scoff at.
The lower back pain wasn’t persistent or too, too bad, but it was often enough for me to start researching stretches and things I could possibly do to alleviate it. Because the elliptical machine works both the upper body and lower, I’m also experiencing muscle tightness in my shoulders and between my blades. It doesn’t help that I naturally hold tension in my shoulders. There is no room for additional taut in my trapezius muscles.

It is wise to know thy body, Yoda is right. In search of non-medicated muscle relief (so that I can get back to my fun and awesome workouts), I came across many suggestions of muscle stretching and lengthening via Yoga. I’m all in!

If wisdom is on the table – I’m trying to eat it.
Once knowledge is conquered, I’m down to seed it.

I’m glad you dropped by and decided to read it.
Yoda and Yoga are categorized wisdom. I need it.

Yoda and Yoga are my go-to’s when I’m looking to dimensionally elongate,

Happy weeks end to thee – I’m excited about ‘the stretch’ of it – and couldn’t wait. 😀

We’re ALL In This Together

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement on November 2, 2016 at 6:08 am

we-are-in-this-togetherA new month in a year we met only 11 months ago –
Seems like a lifetime with all of the kicking to and fro.

Politics is the debuting show and it has been known to mood damper.
My neighbors of intellect and fundamental vex are no happy grounded campers.

I had two incidents happen this weekend that truly made me pause –
While shopping at Walmart & Costco I came close to being  a victim to assault.

Both were white females and my only render was a salutation word.
Each snarled before they spoke; their conversation exhibited their last nerve.

A quick and frazzled pitch was emitted from each of them on word one.
I, with a different friend in tow at each store – witnessed their undone.

It’s voting time in Arizona and you know that I’ve already done my part.
Folks aren’t asking but speculating, case basket’ing and falling apart.

I’ve seen this happen before, twice in fact…
But it really doesn’t have to be or feel like that.

Whatever happens post this election, God help us all, we have to deal.
But to lose control of emotions and your soul over politics –yields no appeal.

I still love you, I’m still buying your coffee at a Starbucks.
Don’t let the game drive you insane – resist going nuts.

PRAYthat’s what they say and I personally know that it works!
Politics schmolitics we need no divisive girth.

This is the month of THANKS and at the end of the day I am thankful for YOU.
I’m Qui
Up early with thee to hump day 3 which is squarely after 2. 🤗

Inhale, exhale. Execute Self Improvement and get out of the woods.
Life is a game that must be played, pray up and focus on THE GOOD.

I’m gonna start with:
i-love-you
