Nobody ever said it would easy, Breezy

Moving the bar forward in creativity,” are words that John lived by, so it’s hard to say goodbye. He was quick to conceptualize, pre-visualize, and appreciate the beauty of authenticity — for just what it is, all that it encompasses and the dimensions of what it has to offer. He was quoted as saying, “When you try to make it [films] homogenized, when you try to make it appeal to everybody, then you don’t have anything that’s special,” and I agree with him – his knowledge was breezy. Though for all of the wisdom and talent that he put in – nobody ever said that it wold be easy 

and it wasn’t.
He was a son, a father and [ex] husband

long before he ever made his degreed path good
by producing Ice Cube ‘nem in BOYZ N THE HOOD.

An intellectual – he stood and I noticed.
Women flocked his presence hoping to score a kiss,

a stint on the scripted screen…
but John largely seemed to be doing his thing:

laying low key and producing much screen drama.
He was a bonafide job creator and even hired his Moma.

Yep. He did that.
JS was a pretty chill cat.

His sign: Capricorn
and I’m sure that he rammed against the norms
from the day that he was born.
You know ‘dem Caps got horns

and gall.
Without such buck reel change would have stalled.

I’m going to miss Sir Singleton —
and will guardian his purpose that it not be undone.

I, too, agree with John’s vision that we must tell our own tales,
and I’ll be sure not homogenize my scripts to hell.

Thanks for that advice big bro.
I appreciated your arrival and am effected by your go.

Who knew the sun would yellow so soon.
I look at your work and it still looks like noon.

Amazing.
I hope you know ‘you had that thing.

That thing that makes movie cash registers ring!
I’m Qui
God bless your kids – may residuals continue to sing.

It wasn’t easy. Nobody ever said that it would be.
We won’t forget you too soon – you made reel look breezy.

MONDAY’S PROMPT

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, Self Improvement, Video on April 29, 2019 at 6:43 am

Good morning Monday. Where have you been girl?
There’s so many vibrations that are moving the world.

There’s Beyonce’s new song, “BEFORE I LET GO,”
and Taylor Swifts “ME” video hit the air like WOAH!

In 24-hours Swift’s new vid has been seen more than 45 million times!
Taylors view balled and doled basketball to the side.

That’s what’s up.
Monday is an exciting weekday cut.

I prayed and I’m up; today I roam this Cali space.
I’m out here on assignment – I do love this place.

The royal service at The Westin is something I could get used to.
I’m the writer peeping their stylo — I love the high-rise view.

Good morning, good morning, good morning to you!
I’m feeling refreshed – so how do you do?

There’s a lot of creativity in the air this morn
dawning after Bey and Swift‘s new babies were born.

I’ve slept like a baby in this penthouse suite.
It’s a great escape from Texas and Arizona’s heat.

Though without you, I am hardly me –
I pray for guidance from the heavenly

Father.
So, don’t bother

chiming in with Earth-leaning advice
about where women should go or do with our lives.

Pardon our force of FORMATION; we’re in assembly.
Bey, Taylor, Shondra and Ava are all sisters to me.

We are like that AVENGERS scene in END GAME when -ish got real
and the women relieved the men to wipe up the battlefield.

Did you see it? It was great.
Avengers put TRANSITIONS on our plate.

Things are changing in the AVENGER dynamic.
Captain A passed off his shield – he did hand it

to another.
Believe or not, t’was passed to a brother.

Hm? The depth of the writing
was real-world-metaphore and exciting.

America needs saving and we all can help.
The Captain may be retiring for America’s health.

She needs help from all of her occupants, especially the women.
America is in trouble but not out of the count to keep winnin.’

Our unity is what bears all and keeps our vibe in mode “grinning.”
Avengers END GAME was about sustaining the winning.

Are you in?
It’s MONDAY morning and we can begin again.
Are you in?
#PROMPT

Let’s help each other and God will help us all.
I’m Qui
a woman about things in this Cali scene. EXPAND YOUR FORCES if you have the gall.

There’s no reason on earth for mass unity to stall.
Are you ready, y’all?
