Science. God.

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, News, Science, Self Improvement, Video on December 30, 2019 at 5:30 am


.

Have you ever been reading and certain phrases and words catch your eye?
Happens to me all of the time – I shan’t lie,

and in those moments my lids grow wide
as I comprehend the minds of other lives.

At the point where deep intellectualism resides
every story has peaks & valleys; today we focus on The High.

The Almighty “Oh My;” the one responsible for your spirit, mind and bod.
Let’s talk about The Most High, I call Him: Pops and God.

What do you call Him? Do you call Him at all?
If you don’t everyday, do call when your probs are tall.

I do.
And like supernatural fixin’s – He always come through.

spinning news paperSo I was reading this piece in the New York Times
that says Christians be talking but God doesn’t make “the chime.”

Folks are not talking about God everyday.
I was a bit surprised; I responded, “Whatchu’ say?

I really didn’t want to believe it.
But my guy has not only been telling me this — he heaves it

every time I mention God in conversation,
he says, “Most folks wouldn’t make that relation.”

I be like, “What?
It feels like taking one to the gut.

I suppose I did assume everyone talks about ‘The Most High.’
Especially at the start of everyday; upon opening their eyes,

but the New York Times has published otherwise – so I had to vent.
In fact, the percentage of folks that talk about God often is 7%.

That alone won’t pay the rent when Christianity is at an all time high.
What does it mean to be a Christian? Is ‘believing in God’ a time that’s still nigh?

I sure hope so.
Though Stephen Hawking and Einstein said “no.”

Both men believed more in Science as the life-creation reason
and that human stories and calendar glory created the Christmas season.

Okay.
Then there’s my say.

prayingAgain, I pray and God comes through.
I believe quantum fluctuation belongs to God, too.

If you are not familiar with it,
no probQF makes life in quantum physics.

I believe creation can occur via quantum fluctuation,
and also, that God gave it to us to make such relation.

Is that okay?
No right or wrong needs to be at play

if we can come together and agree on this day
that a higher being, our God has the first and last say.

After all, it won’t be you nor I
that give quantum fluctuation or creates life.

Science is important and I am a woman of such,
but even Science has a beginning; a divine push.

Supernatural forces work for-and-against us everyday.
Please do not live this life ill-prepared for the game you must play.

Life is a game that must be played,”
be properly prepared or by stress be slayed.

Your power is present lest you allow it to be erased
by not believing in God and the schematics of grace.

You are a soldier – please take your place.
God is your power source – let this knowledge not be erased.

It’s okay to lean on Him and live in grace.
I really hoped the lack of God-talk was just a phase.

Unfortunately, I see
that this has become the norm in society.

Though it doesn’t always have to be.
You and I can change that – conversation is key.

Science-God.gif

Again, I am a woman of Science, my upcoming Bachelors degree confirms.
I’m Qui
and I think, ‘the elimination of God talk’ yields hope – a certain burn.

It’s okay to educate ourselves and to  learn —
but not to the point that we ignore our spiritual discern.

.
Are you ready? We are fast approaching.
The time to START SOMETHING NEW is manifest encroaching.

Do you feel it in your gut?
Whatever will you do with your flexible butt?

It’s time to move.
Catch the beat and ride a groove.

5-4-3-2-REBOOT on the 1.
20/20 is within our sights, hon.

I’m at the on-ramp of a creative zone.
5-4-3-2-REBOOT is the productive 1.

I’m on my mark, I’m ready and set to go do it.
Excitement is ours; let’s get up and exude it.

I’m looking forward to clearer vision in 2020.
Everyone that I know deserves more love and I’ve got plenty

to give on the 5-4-3 and 2.
I’m divvying more love to me and you.

Evolution
.
Oh yes, beloved – I need more love, too.
Whilst you divvy the love that encompasses you?

If only between you and your closest crew.
I think yielding more love is something we all ought to do.

I think it’s a perfect time for a Reboot, Boo.
A more loving union is one we should pursue.

In a short span of 3-days a new year will arise.
The future has a love-suture for our unite.

Care you to be a part of the evolve; dare you to lead?
I’m Qui
on the 5-4-3 because the 2 and Reboot requires our unity.

That’s on you & me — and to tell the truth,
I think we can do it! Let’s 5-4-3-2-REBOOT.

and be strong about it, like GROOT.

I missed you and I want to…

In Communication, education, Networking, Self Improvement on December 26, 2019 at 5:15 am

howl-doggy.gif

I’d have wished you a Merry Christmas yesterday
but I didn’t want to interrupt your “celebrate.”

I can only imagine that you cooked your best, mingled with fam and ate.
Then you probably worked it off indoors — (the way that you like to play).

And I get it.
I didn’t want to hit you up while you were hitting it.

Did you consume some sweet potato pie?
I did – a small piece or two. I ain’t gone lie.

It was good but it wasn’t Mom’s; hence it didn’t taste the same.
Merry is the season and Jesus is the reason,  (that’s Mary’s son’s name).

Black-Jesus.gifThe calendar pushes us into the “mass shopping” lane.
Shopping isn’t king. Don’t forget Mary’s baby’s name.

Isn’t He why you’re feeling so so merry?
Let Him get those burdens up off ya – DO NOT carry.

You knew that right?
Now dance all day and dance all night.
Believe that all will be alright.
Eat a sugar plum or two from your dreams tonight.

You deserve it.
Not getting enough love? Then serve it.

You serve it so well.
Tell opposing notions to ‘go to hell.’

I know that family can sometimes work on your last nerves.
They too, have refrained from putting your philosophy on the curb.

So it’s mutual

the essence of family.
Amen. Now pass the ham to me.

I love leftovers. Don’t you?
Last nights fragments? We took up a few.
Therefore, “going-in again” is something we’re sure to do.
How about you?

A Happy Holidays is still in order from me to you.
What’s that you say that you’re getting into?

Will you be jitted-up for New Year’s Eve?
states-mmj-legalPerhaps travel a stint and smoke some weed?

Vegas or Cali? Where are you planning on going?
I know cold Colorado does not have your itinerary glowing.

Me? I’m easy like Sunday morning after Christmas.
I’m thinking of you, love and longing for a big hug.

So here I am, beloved. Do bring it in.
Let’s slide to the kitchen for a lemonade & gin.

There’s left over liquor from last weekend.
Let’s, you and I, stay warm; let’s drink the gin.

Let’s flirt but not sin. Can we really?
Let’s act like teenagers; don’t give AF and be silly.

Give yourself the gift of life
And bury routine, mundanity and strife.

Are you in?
If so, raise your cup of jo’ or gin.

I toast to thee: A loving and prosperous end-of-the-year.
I’m Qui
and I’ve missed you. Please let these words kiss you, o’ dear.

Wine, Wings, and Scripts. OH MY!

wine-wings-script-reading-party.gif

Toasting to diverse scripts.

Last night, last night was about scripted writes.
We gathered before the sky took moonlight.

We sipped and drank, and shots were called.
Literally celebrating the leave of ol’ Fall.

We did so with open hearts and minds
we mingled over the new scripted finds.

Then we read…
with the drink about our heads.

Idris-Elba-eating.gif

Yeah, we had the CAJUN WINGS, too.

Sober? We were and all feeling well.
T’is was the perfect setting for a SCRIPT READING spell.

The readers in tow represented Millennials and Generation Z.
Then there were the older kids; kids who graduated with me.

Okay, to be honest when I’ve the opportunity to hang w/younger folk, I’m pretty glad.
It’s good to feel youth extended — and not play the role of ‘the mom or dad.’
Yes! A good time was definitely had.

We read 2 short films – all original content.
We did so expeditiously; only 90-minutes were spent

breathing life into the formatted short scripts.
The guest comments are vital; I put them on my hip.

Something like a gun holster would adequately hold.
The minds of the future are todays think-tank gold.

FRESH Eyes, Ears, Thoughts and Concepts matter in my SCRIPTS

The MOST VALUABLE PRODUCER flew in from LA
to host in the space and take her aristocratic place

as “The Hostess with The Mostest;” deep charm was on display.
The Producer is TWERKITA – from Dallas, Phoenix, and LA.

The script reading party that went forth last night,
was full of high spirits, wet-spirits, all-smiles and no fight.

The party wrapped before 10 but we still had a little gin
and wine left over to sip.
We partied until Uber came, we grabbed our things and we dipped.

A night downtown was owned by a party of social-minded script readers
whose opinions weigh heavy me. I’m the receptive writer; I’m eager.

I’ve got re-writes to do today. Today is the Sabbath, so ‘good Lordy,’
I’m Qui
Recovering with thee from last night dope SCRIPT READING PARTY.

It went hard and no one was over the age of 40…

IRRESPONSIBLE MFG & MKTG

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on December 18, 2019 at 4:50 am
boo-boo-bear_eye-realization.gif

Think about it…

Our landfills are filled to the max and recycling “all things” isn’t quite as effective yet.

So, why are we a country of consumers who stack the deck
on any thing brand new that we can get?

A new car? You can have it, but what will you or the manufacturer do with the old one?
Recycling isn’t in the picture when we are so often feeling entitled and forever young.

How old are you? Sure, being young is indeed a state of mind,
so is being thoughtful towards Earth, yourself/mankind.

A new house? Old neighborhoods are abandoned for the new.
Builders are responsible for erecting residences for me and you.

They are hoping that you’ll be open to upgrade and bid your current one adieu.
But builders aren’t magicians; recycling houses should be in our purview.

I know what you’re thinking: “homes are recycled” because you have moved ump-teeth times.
Homes are not recyclable. We live in a system that needs to be looked at and redefined.

Homeownership erodes in neighborhoods that are 7-8 families removed from the original builder.
Reminding me of how we arrived at this place of impoverished standards; though, each new fam can be a healer

with an understanding in mind and a long-term vision for the future.
Passing down eroding structures equates to a wound – not a suture.

We, the people should utilize mindfulness via our individ & collective domes.
Let us give deeper thought to re-upping those earbuds and cell phones.

Phones do not render us transportation nor a place to live.
Though, when it comes to emitting radiation to your head, they do give.

So when a new phone hits the market, you often consider dropping the one that you have.
Are phones recyclable? Research before yielding a premature laugh.

THEY ARE NOT recyclable but they should be.
Is it asking too much to get manufacturers to agree?

What is the expiration date for any technological thing?
If marriage engagements don’t work, we just give back the ring.

It’s futile to hoard old cell phones and stack them up.
That practice is for legacy heirloom metals and diamond cuts.

If the jewel isn’t returnable, we opt to regift it or melt it down.
We mold it into a bar or another accessory; but we don’t abandon the crown.

the-ring.gif

Do we really have to have it?

Jewelry isn’t the only valuable commodity that deserves long term thought.
Whatever happened to that old car, home, television, and phone that you bought?

This issue is not solely yours; though your thoughts on resolution are requested like hire.
Responsible manufacturing already exists in some markets – we actively recycle tires.

Would it be too much to dismantle an old home and reclaim the wood?
Would recycling old cellphones do our atmosphere any collective good?

Absolutely. If only we could arrive at recycling being easy and done on a whim.
There are so many products that we insist on upgrading but are not recycling them.

Manufacturers are making products-upon-products with no path to recycle.
We must hold them accountable; lets live a “FULL LIFE” – not a “life-full.”

iphone-pile

No RECYCLING yet, but a few REPURPOSING ideas

A life full of old products that we just walked away from.
Thoughtfulness starts with you. Upgrading is supposed to be fun.

Not tethering us all to dated manufacturing ideas.
IRRESPONSIBLE MFG & MKTG is a present issue – for real.

Are you so busy shopping that you have given it no thought?
What “thanks”  have mfg’s given to you for the upgrades that you have bought?

No national trade-in programs or money-back for upgrades.
Must we be loyal to Earths accelerated degrade?

Law insists that we pay a trash collection tax, inspect our cars and pay our utility bills.
Why aren’t we holding manufacturing and marketers to same “responsibility” feel?

The world is full of old NEW stuff and we need help with “the discard.”
Let’s appeal to manufacturers and marketers and not just to the Lord.

Praying for a miracle? Fine. But we need no supernatural dash,
just a few recycling programs to help reduce the loyal customer’s trash.

If manufacturers and marketers want the people – at large, to support…
We must demand they help us out on recycling their specific sort.

Consumers cannot do it alone.
Lest they be more thoughtful and not get that new phone.

T’is a workable solution; a solution that I actually like,
I’m Qui
IRRESPONSIBLE MFG & MKTG exists because “excessive want” is ruling our lives.

Honestly, we can’t afford a trashed Earth; it’s time to consider ye ol’
DO NOT BUY.”

What the L

Good morning good people, take a hit and pass
I’m not on a mission about dissin’ – I’m all about the laugh.

Reality is running rampart, may comedy dispel,
and this little segment is something I like to call:

What The L!!

No this little ‘spit out’ has nothing to do with Samuel L,
but the fact that his pic came up on the research – was funny as hell.

Please don’t forget to laugh for a spell whilst you’re on your grind.
If there’s nothing around to invoke ‘the clown,’ laugh at your own behind.

I laugh at me all of the time.
I’m quite the clutz when I’m not in rhyme.

Not immune to falling down in public, though I’m quick to get up.
My fitness game is hardly lame, I fall and get up to keep my abs cut!

Now who’s laughing at whom?
Like I said, if I laugh at me – you know I’m-a laugh at you.

So go ‘head and do what you do. Look in the mirror and laugh
Life is only what you make it – less offense – more goofy gas.

BATWOMAN is THAT WOMAN

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows, Video on December 14, 2019 at 1:03 pm

CW-Feme-Super-heroes.gif

CW is the place that I suggest you to be
to witness the clarification of our past and upcoming legacy.

Ooo wee, I can see the good of the creative writers hand.
If we are to make music as a people, we all need a chair in the band.

BLACK LIGHTNING is pretty awesome; a totally fictional world.
Black Lightning has two children; both SUPER HERO GIRLS.

I give that script three snaps and a revolutionary twirl.
Where do you go when life throws you a whoa? You turn to your Moms or a girl.

the-cw.gif

Am I right?
CW has foundational insight

and I like the way that they write.
Yielding the viewer throwback & future sight.

I do like. Heck, I’m playing it shy — I do love.
BATWOMAN is  THAT WOMAN. She deserves a hug.

The conception is real. The dialogue: layered & thick.
MARVEL yields us the skinny; deck-stacking is DC COMICS.

.

CW is not afraid of –ish and I love their spotlight walk.
I support it so much that I binged it up to birth this Griot talk.

CW; See-Double-You. You’re yielding your audiences twice as much.
Tough storylines, diverse cast finds… you deserve double-the-love.

BATWOMAN. Let’s talk about her – she’s no bat nor cat.
But she is the who shows up on the scene to bid ill-posers a whack.

Though the script is not simple and the familial-issues are stacked.
If you’re looking for a mere “good time,” – you can also find that.

But whilst you watch on DC’s clock
dialogue clears the fog and backstory rocks.

It’s like LAYS – if you try one episode, it’s likely that you won’t be able to stop,
I’m Qui
and today BATWOMAN is THAT Woman. I’m binge watching CW’s creative dock.

and it don’t stop…

God is amazing.
You can see His moves in the trail blazing

if you look ever so closely.
To be in the dark about His moves is to live ghostly.

Are we living in the purpose of His intended scene?
If we’re not giddy about life – that’s a not God’s thing.

His will for us is to be peaceful. Let us be peace on this Thursday.
Lean not unto our own understanding less we reap a thirst day. 😛

Give negative energy a powerful black eye
by yielding to a GROWTH SPURT; reach for the sky.
Make Heaven on Earth within your sights.

Why not?
Your life is not about broken branches and snot.

Thus, this season was made for thee,
especially for children of the Trinity.

ROLE PLAY is GOOD Any Day

.

playing dress-up.jpg

Yesterday I was lightening quick in composing personal texts.
A thought would cross my mind and I’d compose at break-neck.

Have you ever been there?
My partner says that’s ‘it’s not fair’

that my hands move as fast as my lips.
If one can’t keep up with the 411, one will get “the slip.”

That is not ever my intention and yesterday was a delightful surprise,
I composed a text so fast, that the recipients name slipped past my eyes.

I meant to send the intended text to one person, but it went out to a “friendly other.”
I started the texts out with “I’m texting because I love you,” – t’is was a text for my mother.

As God would have it, it went out to another lady whose kid is not me.
She hit me back with love and support and took on “the motherly lead.”

Ooo Wee.
She got me.

For later on when I accessed my texts to hit my mother again,
I realized the name atop of the texts was a beloved and much younger friend‘s.

She is indeed a mother of two who figured it was a mistake, and was just ‘doing what she do.’
She played mother to me yesterday; I exceed her offspring in age by a decade or few.

Ooo-ooo-ooo. Have you ever?
I yield such script-work to God; He is supreme clever.

I suppose this is the reason why I decided to rise and talk about G-o-d,
I’m Qui
and ROLE PLAY is Good Any Day – if you allow God to take the lead. Indeed.

In my heart I am a poet and I know it. Furthermore, I just want to say,

I’m really into you. I love the way that you feel.
Encompassing your capacity is to be human and real.

Enriched? Why, yes I am.
I’ve got genes upon genes; compilation compressed-fam.

Me & You — you and I.
I see the beauty of you via my third eye.

I pray to always be so wise.
I prefer to radiate via the stare of my eyes.

I am really into you.
I like your individualism amidst mass grooves.

Ooo-ooo-ooo.
Ain’t nothing like Me & You.
Quick I shan’t be to bid you adieu.

Daughter of Shakespeare; kissed by Michael Angelo
I am into you: mind, body, spirit, and soul.

To remain with thee is my primary goal.
May the good of birthright continue to unfold…

Me & You – we ‘gone keep it tight.
Encompassing love by the day and love by the night.

For the good of humanity – walk away from “fight.”
For the good of humanity – protect & foster life.

To achieve Heaven on Earth, treat everyone right.
Do not plan good for yourself, alone – such is a plan for sure strife.

Climbing the ladder like no other man matters – will make you a slave for life.
To achieve Heaven on Earth, don’t make your objective: girth; pray to God for wisdom – be wise.

It’s an idea – this is not a plight.
Know thyself. I think and write

about Me & You.

Good morning life. What opportunity is in your dew?
What opportunity for unity will push its way through?
I’m open and I’m hoping for the longevity of Me & You.
