Good Morning Monday

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 21, 2018 at 5:52 am
Be inspired today. You can handle it: https://youtu.be/P8kgbpR1fSc

Ooo child, where have you been?
Everyday of the week tried to spike & peak
in headline news with a funky spin.

Empty headlines and fruitless grapevines serve the people none.
I used the weekend to ‘life sweeten;’ I insist on having more fun.

Please tell me that you, too are getting some, dear Monday?
You are a leader not a tweeter; you’re an opportunistic fun-day.

I’m up early and eager to participate
in what it is that you intend to give weigh to –
I’m awake and ready to play.

Good Morning Monday, what do you say?
Will we have another gumbo of headline news today?

Will more comparisons to Nixon creep up that will make the prez sick?
With hands the size of a normal man, the prez still resembles Tricky Dick.

Good Morning Monday, I love the essence of your day.
I am grateful for all who survived the shooting in Santa Fe.

Another high school shooting has come to pass; this time in Texas.
There are no interests in making sensible gun laws that connect us.

Monday Morning, you remain in the column of good.
Let those of us who pray, do so in the American hood

for clarity and protection.
Compassion for others may be the connection.

Though, if we don’t change gun laws more adolescent lives are doomed to be lost.
Perhaps gun violence keeps rising because many haven’t personally felt the cost.

PICTURE - framingIf this is true,
don’t let the next bullet hit you.

Whoever it is among us, blindly championing for guns,
let him heal himself when all that he has is full of holes and undone.

It has nothing to do with sin, they’re likely an NRA friend – they’ll be fine.
But you and I have got to get our kids out of harms way and off of the front lines.

Monday, let’s start this day
realizing that we can’t continue this way.

Monday, let us start this day
with us holding hands in unison to pray.

What do you say, Monday? I’m happy to testify first.
With so much funkiness in the world, I believe it’s prayer that we thirsts.

Good morning sweetheart, you’re the first; I love the strength of your shoulders,
I’m Qui
On the infrastructure of WE; Monday bares the strength of a thousand boulders.

WE can handle it.

Tomorrow Feels Like Today

The reel view.

It’s going to be a restful day for me, tomorrow.
I’ve got 60% of my homework done; no weekend-sorrow.

Tomorrow feels like it may be a winner.
I know because I call the shots and I’m no beginner.

Today feels a lot like the future; I’m calling the shots right now.
My pen is my mule; a field of creative concepts, is what I plow.

I write. I love to listen and participate in thinking outside of the box.
I’m in school for Digital Cinematography and I’m reminded of how much writers rock!

I’ve just watched an hour-long pre-recorded event and six short-films; I have a couple of analysis’ to produce.
The professor said 200-words for 1 and no less than 500 for the other. Thank God I’ve got the juice!

My grade school teachers used to remark, “If you use all of your words in one day, tomorrow the young misses will have nothing to say.”
Tomorrow Feels Like yesterday. I enjoyed exercising the gift-of-gab and still, I’ve much more to say.

Tis’ the proof of such skill in the griot-wield that spills out and over onto you.
Though only after I’ve contributed to my personal journal; logged volumes of truths.

I’m doing all of this, for tomorrow – mainly because I am truly enjoying today.
I’m Qui
Free about the gift-of-gab in me. Thank ye, for stopping by to read my say.

All the world’s a stage…
Enjoy your cues today.

The RESPECT Basics.jpg

Yesterday was good to me. I had a merry good time.
Yesterday was Mothers Day and the day was all mine.

I woke up feeling adored; I had my children on my mind.
My children live in different states and each one was fine.

The fullness of the day was substantial and giving.
Happy Monday to all Mothers. Your love is so healing.

Happy Monday to every body that is reading this text.
I’m just up from great sleep; I didn’t wake up vexed.

I have collegiate work to tackle in between my career moves.
I have screenplay dialogue work pending; I’m happy in my groove.

I tried hard to not watch the news because it keeps getting sadder.
‘We are all born to die,’ says Meghan McCain to Kelly Riddell-Sadler.

Since Kelly  made a joke about John McCain’s vote not mattering – because “he’s dying anyway,”
we have heard no other comments from her, not even a public apology display.

John McCain is an American hero, and he’s here in Arizona fighting for his life.
We don’t always agree on political views, (me and him or you) but I’m praying for his life.

His life. I genuinely care about life.
Will anyone care about you in your trial of strife?

You’ve got to think about that, Kelly. Your job is temporary.
You’re flocking with birds, trying to gain status in the herd;
Your actions are morally scary.
Hmp! I guess your soul has the capacity to carry.

Kelly is a White House Aide who works for the prez and has no kids.
Her maiden name is Riddell, she married Frank; the Sadler surname is his.

No kids could mean that Kelly’s compassion-gene may be nil.
The fact that she would joke about the end of someone’s life is unreal.

And she has yet to publicly apologize.
Kinfolk, we are seeing the destruction of our country’s morale before our eyes.

However, as I sit up in my bed this morning I am slow to rise
because I am not stressed and feeling highly blessed beyond the skies.

I love John McCain, Meghan and Kelly Riddlell-Sadler too.
I felt this was not a new peruse entry but a topic for specific review.

I’m praying for them all and I’m praying for you as well,
I’m Qui
A happy mother on this Monday – shooting notions of immorality to hell.

News Peruse

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on May 11, 2018 at 7:56 am

newspaper-ladyI’ve subscribed to two newspapers and several magazines
and I still don’t know what’s going on in the admin of things.

What’s going on in DC? The White house vibe is on blast!
Muellers subpoenas wear boots and his queries kick-ass.

Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is Leo whose on-the-line everyday.
As the presidents Communications Dir. – why aren’t they on the same page?

It’s not fair to her
that she has to explain the thick of the stir.

It’s not fair to Sandra at all;
her position is comparable to a seat in a stall.

She knows it.
Her eyebrows and neck show it.

Sarah is not happy and I intuitively feel her.
I know she can’t until the Press Corp Dinner is a distant blur.

There, as well, she took a roasted beating.
I’m not a SSH fan but she’s clearly a woman
not quick to be-up-for conceding.

Thursday’s news coverage didn’t really give a damn
about Trump and Melania meeting returned-hostages at 2 am.

Coverage was nill.
However, the Stormy Daniels deal is still uphill.

Thanks to Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen can’t get a break.
I’m wondering just how much more pressure the Fixer can take?

Stress is good for no man.
Michael Cohen looks like the fall-guy
I hope he has a plan.

Oh man! Oh man! I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes
and be a part of this periled News Peruse.

Thank God that I’m just writing.
Compared to Cohen’s problems – writing is exciting!

Giuliani! Giuliani! What are you doing?
The golden years are no time for repuation screwing.

I know that you’re wiser – but you’re fronting for a friend.
Birds of a feather flock together and they may burn you in the end.

Don’t you think?
Please be clued-in post reading my ink.

Giuliani you gotta think, man; life is a give and take.
You gave and are giving but not fit for Secretary of State.

It’s okay, but you don’t have to continue to play yourself.
Enjoy your new resignation from the firm and focus on your health.

I know that I would.
Living a long and prosperous life is what’s really good.

You are an elder now.
I admire your life tenur and yearn to know ‘how.’

In wisdom, of course.
Living a long and happy life is the ultimate score.

Do what makes your soul happy is longevity-giving.
Making love instead of chaos & war, can be quite healing.

Let’s do it today. I’m talking about me and you!

Good Morning Monday. How are you today?
I slept like a baby and woke up a lady;
In rare Formation, I’d like to play.

How about you and the opportunity that you encompass herein?
What have you got up for a Go-Getter’s prosperous win?

I’m high up in the mountains where the mood and vibe is fair.

Bracing for A Bite

In Communication, Griot, News on May 2, 2018 at 8:05 am

qui-bracing_for_bite1It’s been 16-days since my braces have been installed and life is still good.
I have to forgo eating out at many of the favorited establishments in my hood.

Applesauce is my friend; no longer am I in search of spices and seasonings of fire.
In other words, no spicy Chik Fil A or robust steak because of my mouth-jeweled wires.

It’s a new day for me kinfolk – I must say, and Ooo Weee!
In the future, we’ll likely follow this up with Jaw Surgery.

There are many restrictions on the food list that I used to love and find dandy.
So thank God we’ll need no resolve for me to continue to consume chocolate candy.

I’m a lover of the basic Hershey’s chocolate bar. Give me one and you can’t stop me.
I eat half of a chocolate bar every morning; it goes well with my black coffee.

My coffee game is strong and I don’t want my teeth to stain,
so I may have to pull back on it, but eating chocolate will remain the same.

My new mouth jewelry feels strange, I must say.
However, it is also lending relief to my daily TMJ.

Remember that?
TMJ is a bad cat.

My TMJ seems to be restrained a little, by the new brace.
I’m sleeping like a baby, but no longer on my face.

I have to sleep on my back; I’m sad, but no pout.
For sleeping on my tummy, causes the wires to cut my mouth.

qui-bracing_for_bite2When sleeping on my face, the inside of my jaws give-way to gravity.
I wake up feeling like I’ve been chewing barbed wire; quite raggedy.

But if I sleep on my back, gravity holds all in place
and restricts my jaws from resting on the brace.

What a new route to take? I loved sleeping on my tummy.
But for the relief of TMJ, tasting a new sleeping route is yummy.

I’m braced for tomorrow and all of the goodness that it will bring.
I’m embracing metal jewelry because TMJ and I have a thing.

Wax has become my newest best friend and I think he feels the same.
He’s rolled between my fingers, he’s a nifty humdinger;
wax protects me from the pains.

Wish me well kinfolk, I am humping a wired game,

Good morning and Oui-Oui, everything oral has changed.

Oy PaperBoi

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 30, 2018 at 8:15 am

AtlantaGood morning o’ neighbor, dear WordPress kin,
I’m back on the subject of PaperBoi again.

I like him and his cousin Earnie, his friends Darius and Tracey too.
I’m into exploiting the schemes, their dreams and the things that they go through

because the episodes are packed with potential to teach someone a lesson.
The fact that PaperBoi didn’t die in episode 9 was a miraculous blessin.’

Did you see it?
The luck of PaperBoi; I wouldn’t want to be it.

I love the show and the cast of members
who pull me back into the south and its consequences…I remember.

Season 2, episode 8 of the ATLANTA series
PaperBoi went to get a pedicure and ended up in trees.

A forested scene showed up when he decided to walk home from the salon.
It was a half-thought-out idea because he needed to get his ‘clear mind‘ on.

In route, he ran into 3 dudes on a cruise who attempted to beat him black and blue.
It’s true and PaperBoi was solid on delivering those 1’s and 2’s.

Via his handy-work, a can of whip-ass was unleashed
and that’s what lead him to run through the trees.

After fighting off the 3 dudes including one firing a gun
an immediate run through the forest seemed to be safer fun

as well as a reasonably good effort to get away from them.
PaperBoi’s life is full of circumstantial hem.

With a shiner on his upper cheek and blood in his mouth
he was still his even-keeled self, with no time to wince or pout.

As he submerged himself into the forests’ fist
he met a homeless man who wasn’t sure if he’d let him live.

The homeless man had mental health issues and such,
it appeared he was in the thick creating deer guts.

Yes. He had a box-cutter and was suffering a mentally-ill head;
he was slicing deer at the bowels and the deer would drop dead.

Upon discovering PaperBoi in the woods, lip bleeding, and cheek cut –
the homeless man started to stalk PaperBoi – calling him “deer guts.”

The man was nuts. PaperBoi asked the homeless man to ‘please not follow!’,
the homeless man put the box-cutter to PB’s throat; making it hard to swallow.

It was some truly hairy stuff.
PaperBoi started to tear up – but he was not cut.

The homeless man didn’t relent but kept the box-cutter at his throat.
PaperBoi had just dodged a bullet in the street and this was like ‘whoa!’

So, he took a chance and fell backward – away from the blade at his throat.
Then he ran through the lush green as if he was a starved and grazing goat.

He did not eat the green, but he didn’t let the forest eat him either.
Had my dad’s life not been so comparably wild,  I’d call the writers outliers.

The show is crazy fantastic; though the stories still ring real.
I’ve got a thing for PaperBoi and Donald Glover’s ATLANTA appeal.

That was episode 8, don’t get me started on episode 9,
but PB, Darius, Earnie, and Tracy wandered across a culture line.

A frat pajama party that PaperBoi was due to perform
lead him to a frat house with a Confederate flag, major weed, and little alarm.

Did you happen to see the show?
It’s about trees, again – but the one folks blow.

Oy PaperBoi and cousin Earnie! It’s a pleasure for me to dig your style,
I’m Qui
Missing the south but no reason to pout, for your series, is relatively wild!

LIFE with a Side of Bacon and Waffles

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on April 23, 2018 at 7:28 am

.
Three Saturdays ago, I began my morning at The Waffle House on University and the 101. The food was good, however, the company inside of the establishment is always a subject to keep your eye on. My last visit was around 10:30 am, I ordered the ALL STAR special: a waffle, bacon, eggs, and grits. Like I said, it was good. I tipped well, but not as heavy as I usually do, because they were a bit busy and slacking on the swiftness of service. Still, the food was good. In fact, that’s why I keep going back; food consistency.

Last weekend James Shaw, Jr. had a hankering for a waffle and ended up at a Nashville Waffle House franchise. All was well until a half-naked gunman comes in shooting. James was quick on his feet and fled to the restroom. The gunman kills four people and the gunfire stops. James sprints from the restroom and bum rushes the gunman – wrestling his gun away from him. James tosses the gun behind the counter and continued in a life-struggle until the half-naked man squirmed out of James’ grasps and ran. He is currently on the lam and James is being hailed a hero. He’s only 29-years old but embodied the courage of an entire police force since that’s what it normally takes to bring down a gunman whose taken public civilians hostage.

Four lives were lost and at the speed at which the half-naked man was shooting, it would have indeed been more had James not taken him down. James is without a doubt the ALL STAR of the Waffle House and the Nashville community today. Nothing tastes as good as life. James Shaw, Jr. preserved many this weekend.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited
to hear good news and be able to cite it.

I’ve been eating breakfast at home – no butter, bread or rice.
I’m conscious of my health and it’s preserving my life.

 

arrested-in-starbucks.jpg

23-year olds Rashon Nelson, left, and Donte Robinson, right are being arrested. The man in the silver sleeveless bomber jacket is the friend that they were waiting on.

The Waffle House is cool if you want a good breakfast of such.
Thank God a gunman didn’t decide that he’d shoot up a Starbucks.

 

Can you imagine how our lives would have been further tested,
had just moments prior James Shaw, Jr. been arrested?

Last weekend at a Starbucks in Philly
2-black men were arrested and the manager looks silly.

The black men were arrested for waiting on a friend who was white;
he arrived as they were being handcuffed and lead off of the site.

How could this be legal, civil or constitutionally right?
Had James Shaw, Jr. been arrested – how many more would have died?

We need to think about it America. This is who we are.
We are patrons of a Waffle House and James is the All Star.

We all want to live a good life, laugh and be a dynamic lover.
Perhaps we all need to take a look at who we call sisters and brothers.

Breakfast has no race
and evil almost closed down that place.

Why the limitations? Life is a gift and it shouldn’t be randomly taken.

Drizzling morning wisdom atop of LIFE’s Waffles and Bacon.

Monday through Thursday did its thing, indeed and now it’s Friday again.

The day is dealt a 420 spin and Green is in the air.
Foliage costs money and foliage will burn in spare.

That Means today in Arizona folks will be happy in the streets.
There’ll be smiles and a “Hey child!” from most folks that I’ll meet.

Good people.
Incense fills their steeples.

What about you on this Friday? What have you got on the itinerary?
I’m going to take care of my health, spend a little wealth
and snack-out on chocolate & fruit but no dairy.

I just can’t swallow it.
I’m lactose intolerant.

Anywho, Green Means GO!
As it pertains to cash: Greens is overflow.

As it pertains to 420: Green means plenty

Two’s Day

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on April 18, 2018 at 3:00 am

fist-bump-free-stockAnother glorious morning and we are up early to shape the day.
I call it Two’s Day because I like wordplay. I’m obnoxious; I like to play.

But not too much, a childish touch; I adore my playtime with you.
#1. My heart is saddened as the day is dampened by bidding Barbara Bush adieu.

A strong woman with life accomplishments that many of us may never achieve.
She and her beau were 73-years hitched, yo! Can you monogamously conceive?

If you woke up this morning, thank God for life, love, and the ability to read.
I know that you kneeled upon waking up to thank Him for your safe sleep.

Right? Well, that’s what’s up.
Now give God some praise and give me a fist bump.

I could stand for a hug, as well. Human contact is a fundamental need,
as is love, air, and food. Spiritually & physically to live, we must eat.

#2. Speaking of “eat,” I haven’t been eating well. I am brave and stand to face it:
Eating food is difficult to anyone who is new to wearing braces.

I am indeed new.
It’s Day 3 and I’m still having probs with “the chew.

Pray for a sister, too – right after you bless that meal. 🙂
