Remain COOL

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News on May 31, 2017 at 7:39 am

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 8.32.48 PMLIFE is a “happening” thing. It is always “happening” whether we feel we are ready for it or not.

It “happens” to us all. We all go through something. We all have our challenges, the thing is, we must remember to Remain COOL.

‘Tis easier said than done,” you say? I agree, but it doesn’t change the fact that, “The best way out is always through,” — [Robert Frost]

A few weeks ago, I woke up to a beautiful morning and received a note from a friend that she was at the Cancer Treatment Center in Arizona because she recently found out she had an aggressive form of breast cancer and it is in stage 4. First thing’s first I started an instant internal prayer going with the guy upstairs and then I began to research online ‘how to yield strength’ to someone facing such an unforeseen mountain. I found a story that was highly comparable to what my friend is going through, however, the write-up offered  8 Things to Remember When Everything Goes Wrong. These 8 things are fundamental in necessity and can easily yield strength to anyone going through anything. If you click the reference link the write-up goes in detail about each point, but today the details aren’t all that necessary – each line speaks volumes by itself.

LIFE “happens” to the best of us, just remember Remain COOL:

1. Pain is part of growing.
2. Everything in life is temporary.
3. Worrying and complaining changes nothing.
4. Your scars are symbols of your strength.
5. Every little struggle is a step forward.
6. Other people’s negativity is not your problem.
7. What’s meant to be will eventually, BE.
8. The best thing you can do is to keep going.

divider Abstract

I respect life and all that she has to offer,
her beauty, her chaos, her trade-offs and barters.

Everybody goes through something, be prayerful and don’t yield to ‘the fool,’
I’m Qui
encouraging thee, because I, too, need reinforcement to keep my ‘cool.

As for my friend, LIFE is happening to her right now,
While you  Remain COOL will you send up a prayer?
Thanks.
XOXO

A Fresh Start. Do IT with Heart.

‘Crazy about a man with a FRESH stance…

Good morning good people and those otherwise.
Life is at hand, and therein is surprise.

I felt super loved this morning upon opening my eyes.
I knew that feeling would yield unlimited once I gazed upon the skies.

In short, today I’m feeling alright
in fact I’m a bit giddy and a tad bit high.

I understand the difference between the weekend and an absolute conclusion.
I understand the White House is still under scrutiny with this “Russian collusion…”

Did something fishy go on that caused the commander-in-chief
to win the 2016 election and clutch the presidential seat?

If not, in evidential form —
then why the diversion of bigger alarms?

I won’t go down that rabbit hole, God knows that it’s rough
and I think the administrations fall will come in the lies to a “cover up.”

Step your game up

Cover up for  what? I don’t know. That’s where most are in the dark.
So on this Monday, promise me a fun day:  
A Fresh Start and Do IT with Heart.

There are bigger fish to fry in either direction if you want to fry them.
Keep in mind TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE and seizing the moment for good is ‘gem.’

So what’s on your days agenda? Will you meet up with and chill out with a friend?
Or will you buckle down until the ‘weekends clown’ and grind up this weeks begin?

I’ll probably do the latter.
I’m just 7 days in from Texas — still fatter.

Every time I visit that state it goes down.
I always return to Arizona with an additional 3-5 pounds.

This week will find me with a good heart
putting in Maxi Climber minutes, because I’m smart.

This week will find me doing a diagnostic ‘boom-pow!’
when I go to class at the Healing Center of Tao.

When starting anew, don’t forget to massage the spirit.
I’m Qui
no Tao Master yet, still the truth – you will hear it.

Go out and enjoy the begin of the week. Sing gratefulness like a lark.
You deserve A Fresh Start, so go onconquer it and Do IT with Heart.

Peeping the VANTAGE VIEW via a few

In Griot, Networking, News, Politics on May 26, 2017 at 11:56 am

vantage-view.jpgSo I don’t do too much talking if much isn’t needed to say,
that’s always a good time to drop in on others and their convey.

I particularly like blogs, I fancy the bloggers truths
whether I agree with them or not, I respect their vantage view.

You’ve got to! No man nor woman is speaking out to be ignored.
I know the difference between writs of purpose and those born of the bored.

Those are the ones I ignore and they eventually go away.
But when there’s birth of a write filled with purposeful excite
that piece earns its publishing stay.

Google and other search engines memorialize it
It is then vetted to be “a vantage view” hit.

So without adieu, let’s get to it.
Link by link is how I do it:

Being the confrontational chick that I am
I’m going to start with Gianforte and “The Body Slam”

body-slamming-gianforteWhat’s up with that? Civil servants no longer give a damn?
So are we, the inquisitive constituents, to also expect a body slam?

I’m not in line for that slaughter. I’m not that type of lamb.
You give what you get; an eye for an eye, a body slam for a body slam.

I don’t think this is going to go over too well, congressionally in the round.
I predict a few uprisings in Gianforte’s future where he may feel ‘a pound.’

Karma. She is real.
Ask former Rep. Michael Grimm how it feels:

But you can’t ask him. He’s no longer civilly serving any constituents.
Gianforte is up to revive the spirit of tyranny – let his 15 minutes be spent.

Micheal Grimm thought he was above the law,
When serving the public, no such immunity is bought.

Welcome to Congress Mr. Gianforte. May your media light shine forever bright.
And next time you lay hands on someone may the cameraman reel you right.

Michael Grimm served 8 months in prison post his “break you in half” threat to the reporter.
Though it was his evasion of taxes, fraud and lack’ness that delivered him to the big house border.

All is in order for Gianforte to follow the footsteps of the strong armed.
And like Paul Ryan is pretending — we’ll call it a ‘voters right’ norm.

Another overriden alarm.

Anywho, between me and you,
these are a couple of vantage views
that call on Americans to be @ the include.
And God bless the look of us all when the grump is being rude:

Ahhh. The vantage view of the elitist and rich.
Ahhh. The slim ass percentage of 100% bitch.

I’m not mad though I am embarrassed.
The pussy grabber is always up, out and at it….

Jester moves.

I’m sure the weekend late show comics are going to have a field day at the state of our country today,
I’m Qui
Happy Friday baby. Peep the vantage view in play. If you dare, send up a prayer and then walk STRAIGHT away.

Let your awesome agenda rule the day.

MONDAYS Maybe — My Sure FIRE BABY

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on May 22, 2017 at 9:18 am


Ooo wee and yes lawd, things are getting a bit hot.
I’ve got it, he want’s it — not sure if I want to ‘get got.’

If loving you is WRITE I don’t want to be wrong.
I’m DNA to the southern pin up Carmen Jones.

Not quite Louisianan; I don’t read chicken bones.
I’m a hallelujah girl – Jesus is my ‘jones.

I pray. I walk a key & tailored line…
the view is good from the front – the view is good from behind

and good lawd — the deeds that do occupy my time
are good for me; my colorful sublime.

I can’t physically bottle it but I can type it out.
A literal Monday will be my lips pout.

MAC Gold. Lips sticking out but I’m not mad nor hurt,
This fire I’m fanning is quite the invoking flirt.
blonde-qui-pretty-feet-best.gifIt’s drawing me in and pulling up my skirt,
it’s roughing up my hair, but no — it doesn’t hurt.

It’s firm and it’s good…
you know that paper is made from wood.

Wood is a natural erection. Nature gives us that.
And now a forest is before me so with my ax – I’m up to bat.

The day is young however when it gets old,
I’m stacking enough wood to stave off future colds.

It’s pouring out of me, so today I will produce and concept bottle.
I’ve got my laptop, my coffee pot and I’m on CREATION THROTTLE

and it feels good.
I’m making wood.

It could get you hard…
Good lawd.

But I’m willing to bet
if you’re “about that skirt” – it’ll get you wet.

The skirt that I flaunt produces color and excites…
comparable to what you’d see on Brown Suga or that OWN Network of writes.

An insight of delights and the title list is long:
Intellectual, action-packed, and chemistry strong.

My creative mood is quite firm, so I’m going hard!
Happiness is about me, ooo wee and good lawd.

When crafting life imitating pieces many canvases may be used.
Sometimes I strike and start over, other times I blur and fuse.

shondarhimes01

It all depends on the relatives of the situation at hand…
I’ll either seduce like Shondra Rhimes or execute like that Shakespeare man.

To let go and let it flow is my 24-hour plan. I am that lady.
I’m Qui
and Mondays Maybe is My Sure Fire Baby.

I’ll be thinking about you too.

An End and a Begin

In Comedy, Communication, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 19, 2017 at 4:03 am

weekend-party.jpgYesterday came and yesterday went
and all the while my time was spent

running the streets going to and fro
to finalize the affairs of a man named Joe.

Joe is MY DAD, some folks called him Redd,
it’s because he had freckles and flaming hair on his head.

Had he lived to see June 27th, he would have been 70.
Today we’ll memorialize a man that meant the world to me…

Much happier will be I after this huge moment of closure indeed.
After the veteran send off, we’ll congregate among ourselves and delve in the feed.

Comfort food.

We’ll laugh and talk, give dap and hugs.
We’ll likely run through many familial stories of love.

And then it’s on to healing and living well. I’m just a few years past 40.
Life is at hand, enjoy the lay of the land; and always remember to party.

Feeling stuccato? Drop some E40:

After the party, ol’ Saturday morning will roll in sweet
and I’ll brave a smile before the floor shall meet my feet

Because I’m alive, I have the activity of my limbs and all is well.
God bless the family of the late Roger Ailes.

The FOX NEWS giant was doing fine just in the Summer of last year
when a forced resignation is all that the Murdock sons would hear.

Not to rehash old news but he was let go,
post allegations of sexual harassment when female employees said ‘NO.’

My, oh, satellite news has been popping beyond Pennsylvania Av
— none of which is okay, or poised to make us laugh.

So on a lighter note
for you, I have a joke:

A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question.

The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the footpath, and stopped centimeters from a shop window.

For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said, “Look malex-baldwin-pillow-cover-laugh.gifate, don’t ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!”

The passenger apologized and said, “I didn’t realize that a little tap would scare you so much.”

The driver replied, “Sorry, it’s not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver – I’ve been driving a funeral van for the last 25 years”.

Anytime is a good time to start something new & productive in life,
I’m Qui
The day is yours, take the opportunity to soar and smile while you’re covering the miles.

Hindsight will prove it all worthwhile.

It’s getting FUNKY

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Politics, TV Shows, Video on May 17, 2017 at 5:06 am

Last night as satellite news was spilling it–
The world beside me was watching and reeling it.

Taking notes.
Making jokes.

On that man in the white house
whose not working but should be kicked out?

I don’t know, I’m not crazy about the orange homey,
but he had my patience-pending then he fired Comey.

And then he did an interview with Lester Holt
to prove his good mind may be on the fro.

He admitted on camera like a bird that sings
how he fired James Comey while thinking of “this Russia thing.”

McMasters, Huckabee-Sanders and Sean Spice alike
Have all looked like fools behind Trump on the mic.

Each one braving reporters to buff for the orange twitter.
Just to have the rugged pulled from under them; the prez is no quitter.

Sean is worn out and Huckabee-Sanders is looking crazy.
McMasters came out with a “non-denial” denial, like that would phase “we.”

But to phase or erase from yesterdays memory — It did not.
It just reconfirmed that the SPOT is quite HOT!

Pennsylvania Avenue is still the hottest soap opera (to date) brewing.
Isn’t the prez protected from being court dragged by the suing?

Some are hinting the prez to take a thwarted term and go hiate
after it was leaked that he asked Comey to drop the investigate.

Look guys he’s 70. He is living long,
but that holds no guarantee on the mind being strong.

We should all be concerned
from what I’ve learned.

My father passed 2 weeks ago
and he was only 69, yo!

But I can tell you from recent dealings
a strong mind is not what he was feeling.

In fact to watch him slip on basic judgments — broke my heart.
To recognize the prez may be “slipping in judgment” would be smart.

Sadly, it’s Ivanka’s daddy. I too am a Daddy’s girl.
So yeah, It’s Getting Funky is the jam being heard across the world.

Good morning baby, It’s Wednesday again,
Pray up, stay up and forgo building sin.

I’m up early with my cup of jo and a smirky grin,
I’m Qui
On that Dr. Dre piece. ‘Bout to run it again.

It’s Getting FUNKY!!!

Mondays Best

cocktails

decorative-line-divider1

So last nights sleep wasn’t signed off by candy or cocktails
and the vivid dream I reaped had much foresight therein, to tell…

I didn’t understand the whole meaning, though I loved it.
I woke up to THIS new day and )))HUGGED((( it.

Good morning intellects, how are you today?
Good morning jesters — please get out of the way.

flying-heartsLove is in the air and good is on the plate,
There’s nothing unusual about me loving up a MONDAY.

And when I say “a Monday,” I don’t mean an African American man.
A term that I learned of from Quentin. I’m a Tarantino reel fan. 🙂

I do love a MONDAY! It’s always filled with interesting cues.
I love opportunity, the conquer of obstacles, good times and YOU.

I slept 7-hours last night, so YES! Today I am quite REFRESHED!
I’m Qui
A Monday She – rooting for WE. Let’s make this our Mondays Best!

A very Happy Mothers Day

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on May 14, 2017 at 7:27 am

Quis Mothers Day Gifts 2014Hello family, friends and WordPress kinsmen:
I am a blessed recipient of this awesome weekend!

My kids said they love me and my guy footed the bill.
The things they wrote in their homemade cards were of a loving appeal.

There were flowers on the marble top and a dress on the divider.
Compliments surrounded me – hailing me a fond maternal provider.

My God, My God. I wasn’t sure if they were even paying attention,
God knew and shared with me a clue, via their thoughtful mentions.

Yes! This weekend found me surrounded, my hands up to increase the capacity of our group hug.
I’m Qui
Thankful to be of the gender “she” and re-engerized by all the Mothers Day love.

I pray your weekend has been just as loving, you don’t have to be a Mom.
Everyone deserves this wonderful feeling, be it Lisa, Coty or Tom.

Hug on your Moms today
by physical motion or a kneel and pray.

She loves you!
XOXO

fridays-contactGet close and catch a whift
of this Arizonan gift.

No. We did not come together and pass PROP 205
but a contact with GOOD LIFE will get you high.

Styles P said he ‘GETS IT,’
lyrics over beats  – he spits it.

Me? It’s Friday and I’m on point.
Life is good to me, she’s my joint!

I’m with you – let’s call it a “blessed anoint.”
Life is at hand, stand erect and boink.

You catch that?

Oink! Oink! Pork-it. Stuff it with all the good things that you’re into.
Then inhale the wind through your sail and pull a smirk or two

because, see, your eyes may not get red, but your mind will be lifted.
My render is your encouragement, of which, I’m yielding; I’m gifted.

pepe-lepewGet close and catch a whift then go out there and conquer the chart.
Smile at a passer by and share with the broken – your heart.

If 205 had passed I might have encouraged you to “pass to the left.” 😀
I’m Qui
and Fridays Contact has got me feeling intellectually dope… a bit def.

I woke up and inhaled LIFE
from there it seemed everything was alright.

If you’re living
start giving
to yourself.
Health over wealth.

nixon-comey-firing.jpgGood morning family, friends and kin. What’s good play cousins and homeys?
What do you think about the firing of FBI Director James Comey?

Oh. Me? I, well… I wasn’t surprised
that his role was thwarted and insignificantly surmised.

He was up for sounding the hacking alarm about Clinton emails…
I reckon he’s up for shouldering this orange backlash of hell.

Riveting TV? It’s easy to sell. Good Lord I’m tuning in daily.
The White House is so messed up… I’m watching like they’re paying me.

dancing-jester.gifEntertaining but not “phasing.” I don’t have time to be “phased.”
It’s Hump Day baby and I’ve got cobbled stones to lay; a street to pave.

I’m up early on my writes, blocking pages of excite.

I’m up early talking to you. The collective vibe pulls me through.

Ooo! I thank God for this another brand new day.
I’m glad to be of sound mind and with a smile on my face.

I’m grateful for oxygen, limb activity and the warmth of human touch.
I’m Qui
Happy Hump Day baby — be responsible for firing off LOVE.
