whats-up-scary-movie-spoofWhat’s up, what’s up, what’s up?
Does this evening have you feeling like LOVE?

Mine does. It is beautiful and chilly in this place where I sit.
I’m near a window, it’s perfect to compose a Griot spit.

So I am.
Last week did you eat enough turkey, beef or ham?
Are you working it off today? I surely am.

2018 has been good to me so far,
minus the political petty and food in my belly
the Science of Cinematography is the star.

I love filmmaking! We just wrapped at 5,
and kinfolk I’m here to tell you that I feel all-the-way-live.

I think I’ll mingle with good company tonight,
grab a couple of drinks and maybe a bite.

But I didn’t want to do any of the such
without stopping by and sharing some of this LOVE!

Ain’t nothing like enjoying life to-the-fullest and hugging your passions,
I’m Qui
Good evening to thee. 5-4-3-2-1, carry-on and let’s make some more ACTION!

Let’s start at Pappadeaux’s!

Good Morning Monday

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on November 26, 2018 at 5:43 am

Happy-Monday-Beaver.pngGood Morning Monday, I have missed you dearly.
Too much time off comes with a cost. But you?  I never fear thee

or I would have been hard to rise on this morning.
I partied so hard; only sustained by the Lord, I’m grateful to be alive and yawning.

How did you spend the weekend?
Did you get any “me time” in?

I certainly hope so. Even though I know
that the holidays are dubbed as “the family show.”

I enjoyed every single moment of it.
I hosted my fam and they, too, loved it.

Not always into a balanced meal; I’m all about snacks.
Alas, dear Monday, you’re a blunt day – I will deal with the fat.

Good morning, I’m done yawning and ready to take you on at full speed,
I’m Qui
Up early, feeling fluffy and girly at DAY 1 of going lean.

GOOD LOVE in the GROWN ZONE

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on November 25, 2018 at 12:00 am

Bunny-love-making.jpegGood Love? We all need it. Chaos? We currently live it.
Good Love can be powerful and I like to give it.

Enough said,
unless I add-in a good head.

I do love the strength of two well-rounded lobes.
I’ve got a real thing for picking and stroking those.

I’m a quick learner who loves to know what you know.
Enlighten me with — and let the love affair flow.

The weekend is yielding me  to be thankful and I’m ISO a tight hug,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, today I’m all about Good Love.

If you’ve got it please give.
I’m into it – I love the feel.

Get Some.

I’m Thankful for

lady-w-raw-turkey.gifGood morning to you. Are you feeling alright?
Today I’m Thankful to God for my life.

I’m thankful to you for coming by,
and thankful that you can comprehend. That ain’t no lie.

If I wanted to keep a secret from you, and in the past, I did try,
somehow you see-through me; I keep cellophane nigh. 😀

I’m thankful that you don’t want me to ‘put-on‘ for you.
I’m thankful for your midterm civic duty – you came through.
Mmm, ooo, yes-yes and thank you.

It’s Wednesday now, our beloved Day 3,
and just one day before the day of the feast,

Natl-Lampoons-Christmas-TurkeyI hope to God I don’t dine like a famished beast.
Then again, I can’t – my mouth jewelry won’t allow me.

Me and my braces.
Eating doesn’t yield one of my prettier faces.

However, I love my orthodontist. Their services are worth my while.
And I don’t reckon I’m too far off from correcting the bite of my smile.

I hope, I really do hope – but until then it’s dope to not eat a lot.
Still, my darn chocolate cravings too often than not – hit the spot.

I’m thankful for chocolate and tomorrow I’ll opt for chocolate French silk pie,
I’m Qui
Thankful for thee because I’d just be talking to me if you didn’t stop by. 😀

THANK YOU.

 

A is for Arizona’s Awesome Atmosphere

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Travel on November 19, 2018 at 3:45 am
In good company

Ever since the midterm vote and Kirsten Sinema‘s blue —
Arizona has been yielding a much friendlier hue.

I’m telling you and child it feels good.
What’s the vibe saying in your neighborhood?

I spend a lot of my dwelling time in the great state of Texas 
and it used to be the color red between states that connected us.
But now that is not true,
Arizona has turned blue 
And I’m loving “how the midterms has affected us.”

It really, really feels good, y’all.
Cheddars is the place to dine and stall.

Or so it was Saturday afternoon; 
the diversity of patrons did swell and boom.

I eat at Cheddars in Texas and Arizona all of the time.
Originally established in Texas their hospitality shines.

Usually, when I dine in Arizona, my presence sticks out a lot,
The crowd is generally white but the menu hits the spot.

Arizona has a diverse bag of residents, though we haven’t really been mixing.
Folks weren’t sure if it was okay to be chatting, shooting the bull and chitting

about politics, familial affairs, or world news.
So, we held our peace and piece until A-Z turned blue.

Yoo-hoo! Neighbor-oo, how do you do?
I’ve been looking out of the window wanting to talk to you.

Can I offer you a cup of juice or how about coffee?
That’s the new dialogue that seems to be about me  

when my melodious doorbell chimes and sings.
Prior to the midterm vote, I’d never heard the thing.

DING! DING!

The southwest atmosphere is absolutely better.
California is on fire,
I pray the Earth to become wetter.

I’m praying for rain.
If I was a Native and knew of a dance
I’d do the darn thang.’
California needs rain.

The atmosphere over there is rather smoky.
Please pray to God for rain, or soon we’ll all be choky.

Don’t be in a pot slowly boiling; don’t be a curious and an uninformed toddler.
Don’t be the casualty to a hot stove that’s only getting hotter.

You get my point? Now pass the joint because Cali’s weed fields are surely burning, 😀
I’m Qui
Happy to be
in Texas and A-Z where blue and purple reflects our yearning.

Turn to God and put-in on a feel-good vibe –  like Arizona’s atmosphere.
Let’s be kinder to each other more because God holds that stuff dear – 
and then He won’t have a choice but to hear:
Cali needs rain.

Time flies…

Good morning. I woke up with the feeling of winning!
No jars to pickle me in – though I am hooked on KIDDING.

Have you had a chance
to check out KIDDING On-Demand?

Oh, you should. You really should.
It’s quite the SHOWTIME reflection of a ‘perfect neighborhood.’

I hope that Mr. Roger’s hood was not ever so deep.
You’ve got to see Jim Carey’s performance – It’s talking to you and me.

The writers scripted sex, death, and drugs
to accessorize the main story t’was born of love.

The society-observative me thinks so.
Season one came in hot; the cast is a pro.

The narrative view is fresh, it’s strong, and it’s rough.
Jeff Pickles has his shortcomings, yet he is enough.

TNT’s LAST SHIP has sailed, and it isn’t coming back.
Sunday was the last battle on Nathan James’ war track.

I like to watch television a little bit
and it’s channel 573 that I just can’t quit.

It’s called SHORTSTV and it has the best lineups
of creative short films that you can watch in your cut.

Time flies when you’re having fun and reviewing your peers.
I’m a student of film, popcorn, mimosa’s, and cheers.

I’m truly entering into my happy zone as Fall’s essence begins to ring,
and then I hear that Kim Porter’s crossed over; she exited the scene.

XO.

PDiddy aka Mr. Love: I am doleful for you and your beloved children.
Please take heart knowing Kim won’t be far – and that you’ll see her again.

Kim did cross over, but her love won’t ever end.
This morning I arose and with intent, my knees did bend.

I’m praying for you; you and the fam are not alone.
Kim Porter was the real deal, I can’t wait to hear the memoir song.

Life is not to be taken for granted, neither is the stretch or the yawning.
I’m Qui
Cherishing life
and my Griot writes, along with your presence on this morning.

WORDPRESS is Pressing Evolution Again

In News on November 14, 2018 at 8:23 pm

Have you felt the new Editor that’s being introduced through the admin’s backdoor? I’m framing it as coming through the backdoor because at present using the new editor is an option.  But we know that the option period is for a limited time only and that eventually, the new editor will be all that is available. 

Me? I have opted to give the new editor a go early because I’ve been on WordPress for almost a decade and am no longer afraid of confronting the evolution that they serve up. It’s usually good. 

So what did I find?

Well, I found that I will now be building my article content in blocks. Which isn’t really so different from typing text onto a blank document, but they are calling the beginning of a new paragraph “blocks” and I’m sure that’s a reference to HTML coding. We code in blocks. I also noticed that the HTML toggle switch is missing at the very top of the new document. However, if you highlight the block, the edit toolbar will appear at the top. Not a bad deal, but definitely something to get used to. 

In order to continue to press out my Griot point of view
It’s best that I learn how to maneuver the new hue.

It appears that WordPress’ evolution is a clever hat
But poses some issues in my Griot format.

In order to write in Shakespeare verse, poetics and Griot slots,
I may encounter a continuance issue at writing in blocks.

Each new 2-line stanza seems to create a brand-new paragraph.
But it’s just 2-lines in a verse; nothing to start a new block at. [?]

In order to compose this Griot piece in format-fashion 
I had to enlist a Word document and pre-viz my passion.

I wrote out my piece, copied and pasted it into one block.
Then once I pressed enter, it made a new block forever 2-line slot.

The extra step of previsualizing rocks and saved me from being confused by the editing evolution,
I’m Qui
And WordPress’ Press of Evolution bodes well for me; t’is my early conclusion.

What sayest ye, o’ WordPress Kin?
Evolution is real and they’re at it again.

FALL’ing for MONDAY

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on November 12, 2018 at 5:31 am

fall-ing.gifGood morning baby. It’s a little chilly outside.
Any chance that we can stay in? I’ll be Daisy and you can drive. 😀

Oh, I kid you. I jive. I know that you have to make that cheddar.
Especially since I’m accustomed to this level of lifestyle and better.

Just knowing that you care for me like this, keeps me wetter — my lobes.
I’ll elevate in school, after feeding you and off to work you go.

This day is poised to yield returns ten-fold. That is if you’re putting-in good.
The universe ain’t as dumb as your friends; your intentions are silently understood.

FALL is a good time to fall back, retreat from the heat and inhale a cooler breeze.
I’m happy to report I’m doing something of the sort – the air is much crisper around me.

I woke up smiling, kind-of wanting to be wilding,
but with a cup of jo and my homework yo,’–
I’m a happy camper; pistons firing.
Though by the day’s end, I’ll be sounding the siren.

FALL invokes me to feel a certain way.
In my fluffy robe, I’m literally frisky and ready to play.

So I’ll create a script today!
Surely this vibe has a lot to say.

It’s Monday already and I plan to enjoy every second of it,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. I’m FALL’ing for MONDAY and I love it.

Frame your day After you Meditate

In Comedy, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on November 11, 2018 at 10:13 am

Terry-Crews-curious.gifIf you’re asking me, “Why Qui? Do what?
I sincerely wish for you to experience more love.

If you can think more of yourself, others will have no choice but to.
Rest in knowing God created, loves and resides inside of you.

Know without a doubt that your life is worth the living.
And when you’re a casualty of people who fall short –
please don’t let that stop you from love-giving.

Every day upon your initial awake,
take 5-10 minutes to pray and meditate.

.

Do it once a day and you may find that you crave more.
I’m Qui
I keep clarity in my life by activating silence at my core.

Don’t let the life-of-the-day run you.
Acknowledge your life first and journey the day through.
Mindful framing can work wonders for me and you.
