No Stress – is always best!

Good Morning Monday! I love you, and as soon as I opened my eyes —
I was delighted to see you, excited to breathe. Ooo! So glad to be alive.

And so 4am came quick – it feels like I just laid down.
I remember lulling off with a smile and waking up with a frown.

No, I’m not mad it’s just that last night was a hard lay.
I mean, you should see my hair – a coiffed mane despair – I’m not Beyoncé.

But hey the day is young and I am happy.
My hair is un-permed, strong, soft and nappy.

I woke up like this! 🙂

The sun is not yet up and already, I’m in pursuit to go. <
I’ve drank my lemon water, now I’m working on my jo.

Oh! Today is poised to be a winner! <
I do love Mondays – a natural beginner.

A straight-away kick-starter. <

Good Views – News Peruse

As the month of December approaches many are singing a particular song:
“Voting time is nigh – it’s our time to shine!” Let participation be your jones.

And after such an expressive event – let go, enjoy the season and fall in love.
I agree with the prez on something he just said, “[let’s] have a Merry Christmas.”

Happy Holidays is a greeting that encompasses all of the fall/winter calendar events.
Happy Holidays is best for branding if you arrive empty handed – post your money spent. 🤪

Don’t approach the gift exchange talking about “Merry,”
when you know your bills run this ‘thang and your cash has left in a hurry.

It’s okay. We’ve all experienced the “low balance” scurry. It’s a temporary issue.
Thank God the holidays are for good & affectionate displays – so money isn’t an issue.

Right?
I do decree; thus I write.

IJK (I’m just kidding). 🤗 All is said in good fun.
I rarely choke on a pivotal joke used to deliver a good griot yum.

I’m looking forward to a Merry Christmas in less than 1-month away.
I’m Qui
Perusing the News and highlighting good views. God bless “WE” and Happy Holidays!

20111122-092118.jpgYes. I have a thing for expressing THANKS out loud and in public, so Thank you very much. There! I said it again. 🤗 I rather like saying it. You should see the faces of those who I say it to after they’ve shared with me an “automatic random acts of kindness”, like holding the door, being courteous in traffic, picking up something that I dropped, etc. I’m never expecting others to help me out, so the first thought and words out of my mouth are “THANK YOU so very much”, followed by a fun & warm smile. Some people respond with a smile in kind, some simply say “you’re welcome”, and others look at me in surprise. As if my response was unwarranted or ingenious. I smile anyway, and I’ll wave at ya’ – if you keep looking. Life is good I take nothing for granted.

Thank you so much for dropping by our site <
and partaking in my Shakespearian-like Griot writes.

It takes a special kind of mind to comprehend this groove.<
thus I’m appreciative of you every time that you roll through.Ooo..

I’m writing in bars & quoting the news,<
haring the facts – as well as my views,and encouraging you to do the same too.<
You have no idea how much I dig hearing from you.

Ooo child I am thankful to have this moment in time -<
producing this write from my iPhone) – while on my kitchen grind.

A thankful heart and a good mind is what I have in tow.
A witty way to communicate is the seed I’m trying to sew.<
I think It’s growing – yo.

Happy Thanksgiving to you – may the week be rich in spirit.<
And if something great pops off, come post it – I’d love to hear it.

Be guilty of doing a good deed & reap the rewards of a ‘thanks’.<
It’s quite the feeling & spirit healing – better than cash in the bank.

Say ‘thank you’ when someone does something nice,<
And if they stare in disbelief – go ‘head and say it twice. lol!

I’m addicted to it – yo! I like giving it and receiving,

Enjoying this moment with thee. Thankfully Weak is my reasoning.

What are you thankful for?

Waking up to Timothy Snyder, again

An ALARM Clock

I initially posted this piece in March of 2017, though as the days progress I feel compelled to post it again for further review.

Allow me to reintroduce the topic of tyrannical juice via TIMOTHY SNYDER to you.
A little insight on how dictators come through:

divider blk_south

waking-up-is-keyI’ve been with my guy for more than two decades, (since high school), so waking up to Timothy Snyder was something new to me. Good thing my guy isn’t the jealous type, because Timothy has a book that has caught my attention and demands ‘curl-up-in-the-bed’ time, so I’ve been ‘curled-up.’

How did I meet Timothy? Bill Maher introduced me to him last Friday night (I’m quick! 🤗) – he was a panel guest. Did you see the show? It was enlightening and heavy all at the same time. And by “heavy” I mean in yielding brain lobe capacity. You know THAT works for me. Oui! Meet Timothy:

timothy-snyder-tyranny

I met Timothy on REAL TIME with Bill Maher on Friday
He was discussing historical tyranny; education always equals a high day.

I kept the channel locked. Here is where I wanted to play,
it was pretty good stuff. Here’s a 5-min vid of Tim’s informative say:

Heyyyy! That’s whats up. Did you get that?
Aw, you know me. I’m a knowledge hungry she,
and yes — I definitely dug that.

It was so good, so proven and so deep…
I think I’ll transcribe the conversation for “readers on ‘the creep.'”

But that will take a little bit of time.
Peep YouTube – now, before they kill the line.

Me? On this Tuesday morning, I’m feeling fine.
I’ve got a few hours pending before tackling my grind.

I’m hitting you up, because you’ve been on my mind.
Good morning baby. I’m on my lobe-lift grind.

The day is early and knowledge is a good serve anytime!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’m content with spooning this book of mine.

I’m imploring you to expand your mind and to read a book today
Protect yourself, health and wealth from the tyrannical methods of yesterday!
DO Be wary of it creeping up again; Resist “the tyranny sway.”

Overlooking

Yes. I noticed…

No, I really haven’t jumped-on nor delved into the power preyed headlines 
of the many women who have been offended by an O’Reilly, Moore or Weinstein.

I have not.
Though I empathize with all of the tears and snot.

I really do.
I relate with the hashtag #MeToo.

In many instances I spoke up and things just got muddy.
Friendship acts masked the paths of predators prowling for a sexual buddy.

Not sure why so many are power hungry and feel the need to heighten their stance
by cornering folk, metaphorically grabbing ’em by the throat
and putting their hands in the victims pants.

Not on one occasion but on many.
Morals in tow? There can’t be any.

Those with ill-intent who have crossed my path and I was aware – it did not end well.
I’ve remained a lady until this day, oui. Their reward is a mental hell.

I won’t harp on it.
My pen will be too sharp on it.

cas-closed-arms.gif

Overlooking small souls that insist on living too large —
is appropriate in being my current charge.

More women have been affected than care to mention on a whim
because doing so means other folk will know they too were “a victim.”

Who wants to be “a victim” when such a small pistol posed no whip?
I have found folks who are power hungry to be a lonely and useless trick.

Not worth my pen or my spit. So I “forget you forgot you.”
My heart goes out to my sisters and brothers who ever thought about you.

My heart goes out to everyone that has allowed the actions of a predator to watermark their life.
Power-hungry is the fabric of this country. I’d rather make art alone than roll in trife.

Abuses happen everyday. Confront them ASAP, heal and move forward.

Getting To It

Broaching the mid is progress sweet,
It’s Day 2 in this early opportunistic week.

Whatcha got planned? Include something that you love.
Hump day is in view; just a few hours up.

Up hill, that is, or so they say.
Me? I’m quite hype about this weeks 7-days.

Each and every hour of everyday can be used
To stack positive, go mining for good and explore a new view.

Check the angles of the wind, keep your ear to ground
And if your course is incorrectly charted – go ‘head and turn around.

I’m quick to get up today and quick to get on my way
I’ve got a lot of work planned at the start & then I’m off to play!

happy-tuesdayGoing out to play on a Tuesday? You betcha!
When friends show up with business plans to chop up —
Am I in? You betcha! 🤗

But not a minute before I checked in on ya…
How’s it going baby? Any chance you’re in Arizona?

If you are, locate me and join me – our think tank loves a good head!

Yawning a high pitched “Oui,” opportunity is at hand and I’m passionately lead.

The Difference

yogiberra-brainyquote.jpg

Let’s go over some things, let’s sew up last weeks dew.
We’re going to hit a couple of headlines – ok, maybe a few.

We found out Wilbur Ross didn’t cross his heart on not lying
or his little faux pas of being mega rich would have rendered him dying.

He isn’t dead. That whole over-inflated financial worth
was nothing more than the weight of gas per his overzealous girth.

Since then, he has re-iterated his million are far less thwarted.
Doing so calmed the DOJ’s brow — basically Wilbur farted.

Under pressure, he released the truth and now we know
he padded his finance bottom line to hype-up his hedge fund show.

What about Papadopolous? Was he administration fortified or just the skim?
I have no idea of his rhyme, reason or will. We’ve been seeing less of him.

What about this Russia thing? Perhaps it isn’t the headline of the mayhem flyer.
I mean, Frederica Wilson and I are still in the dark about what happened in Niger.

As it pertains to LaDavid Johnson and Myeshia, his lovely widow:
The FBI has yielded no investigation report, but the Washington Post did. Yo?

brotherly-love-he-aint-heavy.JPGWhat is that about? Furthermore what was periodically printed and duly read – – –
is that LaDavid was bound (hands in front) and shot in the back of the head.

Via newspaper reporting is how the Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson leanred of such.
LaDavid Johnson was a Sargent in the United States military. Where’s the brotherly love?

We’re just catching up. I wanted to make sure that you knew
that we’re keeping up with the headlines. Well at least a few.

Other than that, the day is anew and we are all charged to be positive chancers.
Let us go out in the name of humanity and administer love. It’s the total answer.

You are surrounded by politics and bad news, but politics and bad news are not you.
Stay abreast of nuclear news and divisive views then equivocally refuse.

Good energy is trying to surge in the face of mayhems dew,
I’m Qui
Moistened by the good in multiple hoods; that is the residual of me and you.

We are

the difference.

Entering the change…

In Griot, News, Politics, Video on November 8, 2017 at 4:51 am

Theme music for today

Did you hear Joe Buddens PUMP IT UP song booming from your neighbors house last night? If so, that’s because Virginia and New Jersey showed up and showed out.

It’s not Friday night but you cannot tell by the way my neighbors were wielding out last night after hearing that the country isn’t as doomed as it seemed.

The college educated suburbs in VA showed up and had something to make clear; they had something to say.
New Jersey came in on that same Democratic horse and up on hind legs insisted they came to play.

Welcome back kinfolk. You were missed.
Though I admit I’m gonna miss Chris.

Remember Hurricane Sandy
when he and Obama were dandy?

I enjoyed that hug.
I appreciated Chris giving up the love.

So, yeah I’m going to miss him and his snarky filled, sarcastic-ridden speech.
But not as much as Chris missed the crowds the day he closed down the beach.

jon-stewart-chair-danceYeah. It’s all good.
This morning NJ has a new Governor in their hood.

There are many across the country who are starting this day off with a smile
after realizing the country may be waking up; marking a new mile.

Me? Sure, I’m happy. I’m an energy lover who thrives on what’s in the air.
Right now happyis spilling over and I feel it in my toes and my hair.

Woo, I’m surrounded! There’s a feeling of giddiness in my solar plexus and I’m ready to play!
Entering the change that can propel us from lame is the perfect hump to ride on this day.

Jump atop of it and co-mingle with the person next to ya. Yield them a smile.
I’m Qui
excited to write that visceral hate isn’t the vibe and quite happy to walk a new mile.
