Don’t Look at Me

hide and go seek - counter with eyes closed.jpg

There’s much going on in the world today
I can’t help but live big, laugh hard, and pray.

How’s your vantage view? Are things looking up today?
I’m on my betterment, like you. Do you still pray?

Child, you should.
Go on and give it to God and all will be good.

Don’t be like Lot’s wife, always trying to look back.
Look forward and make the necessary moves. No room for slack.

No room for judgment. Forgive folk and keep it moving.
Don’t Look at Me, child. Do what you’re supposed to be doing.

Stop calculating your moves by looking at folk to your right and your left.
God is counting on you to be your higher self; make an effort to DO YOUR BEST.

You can do it.
You know what needs to be done. Don’t screw it.
Put your mind to it.
Our collective energy is needed; We can do this.

Did you ever play the trust game? It’s when you #FallAsYouPray.
Well, I’m here for you, love. Please don’t fall away:

TrustFall-Fail.gif

Fall into formation and into a unified relation.
Don’t be quite like these fellas on Christmas vacation:

HolidayTrustGame_Headache.gif

Don’t look at me – I didn’t do it. 😀
I’m trying to trust your energy — please don’t screw it.

Me? Goodness gracious, it’s early on this opportunistic morning.
I plan on trusting quite a bit after my a.m. stretch and yawning.

I suppose I’m already working within trust mode.
After all, I’m reaching out and talking to you, yo.

I missed you, I need you. I like to #Unify when I’m with you,
I’m Qui
Are you up for it?  Don’t Look at Me. I need YOU to add to…Incomplete-heart1.jpg

PAYING ATTENTION

‘Morning kinfolk. How’d you sleep last night?
Snug as a bug in a rug, rolled tight?

I’m glad to hear it  – if such is the case.
I wish we were having this chit-chat face-2-face

over a cup of coffee at my place — but you are not here,
so I got up quickly to digitally veer into your sphere.

I’ve been thinking about you, dear and I am duly paying attention.
Life’s dailies are real and can be reeled – if they are worth the mention.

How’s your life? Are you paying attention? I certainly am.
If a situation bothers your intuition… consider it damned

and prepare to move on.
The universe carries a vibe that just isn’t wrong.

Do not ignore any internal signs that you may ever feel
about a situation that you wish was better — instead, just keep it real

with yourself.
Forcing energy never helped.

Right?
Let today pull your attention towards the light.
Your life is at hand and YOU’VE GOT THIS. Alright?

What’s on your mind? Anything that you’d like to mention?
Did you watch BIG LEO testify and did you pay attention?

I certainly hoped that you did. I was concerned at the close.
But then I stopped and gave it all to God; what I lack — He knows.

I have confidence in the American People. I am glad that we all have heard.
And now that we have a clue… there’s no reason to fear or be s’kerd.

Heed the reported word by getting a thorough understanding.
Pay Attention to history and when you speak to the universe – be demanding.

What on Earth do you want for you?
Give thought to what you’ll need to do

before you do it.
Whatever you do, don’t get an understanding and screw it.

Such would quickly be deduced to a waste of time.
Pay Attention to avoid unnecessary indentions and speak more in rhyme. 😀

Give it a go. Go ahead. Give it a try.
If nothing else, it’ll change up your quip-vibe.

Or you can literally ride shotgun and I’ll provide the drive,
I’m Qui
I’ve got my eyes on the road because I’m about our lives.

You feel free to watch the road, too.
One pair of eyes discerning things – is only half as good as two.

Getting Back To It

Add it up.

As my collegiate graduation date starts to get closer than not,
I’m sitting back thinking, “I am one blessed lil’ snot.’

Academically It’s true.
I’m barely short of my desired GPA of 4.2.

Other than that,
I’m shaping up to be quite the cinematic cat.

A scientist for sure.
School is a curious kid’s cure.

Summer vacation came and went too quick.
I did a lot of editing & snacking; I got a lil’ thick.

It’s all good, child.
I’ve got a home gym inside of my domicile.

How are you doing this mornin?’
The sun in my hood – later on, will be scorchin.’

So I’m up early
exercising and feeling girly

before the sun comes up.
It’s Hump Day and I’m ISO fun.

Summer is still at hand, so whilst you can, please do pursue it.
I pray lunchtime finds me concluding my grind and Getting Back To It:

Letting my hair down if for no other reason
beyond life, love, liberty and the sunny LEO SEASON.

Leos ! ! ! ! ! ! We are back and good lordy!
Reality is long, so let’s all throw a party.

Are you in? Are you in?
Pink panties ain’t nothing but Pink Lemonade and Gin.

We can work on getting a few of those in.
Day 3 is about “we,” tho she feels like the weekend.

Let the fire season began. I’m happy to do it.
I want you to do it too; join me in Getting Back To It.

Getting Back To You and I… to me;  the two of us…
we” deserve a little more fun and a whole lot more love.

Come in a little closer and get this hug. Progress is being made.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, it’s Leo season. Oui!! Can you come out and play?

PS — Should temperatures be soaring today – stay inside as not to fry.
Go on and turn the television on and watch BIG LEO testify.

 

A MoveMe vs A Movie

In Movies, Networking, News, TV Shows, Video on July 22, 2019 at 5:07 am

FilmProjector_ReelTapeWhat’s the difference between a #MoveMe and a #Movie?
Everything.

Just because both are excellent examples of #ReelScience and are entertaining – they are not the same.

Over the last 15-days I have patronized DIRECTV OnDemand and CINEMA services more than I have AMC and I must say my couch gives those theater recliners comfy-competition. Don’t get me wrong, I have lost no love for patronizing the movie theater – in fact, it’s just the opposite, between my homework and career, I have very little time for movie date nights or afternoon solo-movie outings.  Thank God for satellite and streaming services. The two movies that have inspired me did so equally; though they affected me differently. One is a #MoveMe and one is a #Movie:

FAST COLOR
+
US

Let’s talk about FAST COLOR first. Do you know Julia Hart?
I didn’t before this film and I love our introductory start.

FAST COLOR is about three generations of women within one family who have a relative supernatural gift that has global healing effects. Bo, (short for Bonnie) the matriarch and is portrayed by Lorraine Toussaint and her gift is being able to transform solids into atom-sized particles and manipulate them. Gugu Mbatha-Raw portrays Ruth, the only child of Bo who bears strong signs of checkered waywardness and self-inflicted hurdles from the past that are on a straight trajectory to the future  – unless something changes. Saniyya Sidney portrays Lila; she is the only beloved

grandchild of Bo’s and the daughter of Ruth. This film is not a feel-good-family feature in the beginning. To be fair, the opening of the film canvases what looks like a mother/young daughter bond processing before sharp transitional glitches propel the footage into a scene of chaos only including a young girl.

After a few jarring scene snippets at the opening, I figured that the writer/director was trying to piece something together for us; though for me, the pieces did not quite fit. Then ACT 2 brought it all together…literally. Fast Colors is about being able to see your purpose; previsualizing the task before you and working it out accordingly. This family’s life task would not only serve them well in becoming a tighter family unit but it actually offered a huge benefit to the world.

Their family reminded me of the possibilities within my own; I am expecting great achievements from specific family members who are not even aware that they encompass greatness. I cried at the screening of FAST COLOR because it painted a beautiful picture of hope in a time when the world needs it most. I was moved to be a more positive supporter of others who are lost or don’t exactly understand their purpose.

I literally took it to heart
and am encouraged to mimic the FAST COLOR art.

I took a deep breath and had a cocktail
before familial hope was nearly shot to hell

in US.
The slow beginning was rough

but it picked up quickly and took on a thicker plot at the end.
Not even I expected it and I was prompted with spoilers – by a friend.

Until ACT 2, I almost lost interest when I did not understand
the high capacity of the nightmare in the director’s hand.

My initial WHY arose when a mirrored family showed up in the protagonist family yard.
Had I known WHY I would have been more scared, but good Lord

I was immovable at the mayhem without my beloved why.
My film emotions were in place but were ‘activation’ shy.

Post the close of the movie, I had a clearer reflection of Jordan Peel‘s WHY.
Still, I feel I would have enjoyed a little more ACT 1 glue, i.e., sub-story insight.

Having said as much, this movie truly deserves all of its accolades and hype.
I enjoyed it in dimensions; Jordan Peel’s talent is quite ripe.

BOTH FILMS yielded fun and refreshing 411 that I wanted to know,
I’m Qui
One film made me jump and the other prompted me to grow.

Entertainment & Education go well in a fold.
The  d i f f e r e n c e  between
A #MoveMe vs. A #Movie
is how it  a f f e c t s  your soul.

 

CALL IT…

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on July 19, 2019 at 4:26 am

TomFord_IntuitionQuote

How do you want your life story to go?
What reflections do you pray that it shows?

Haven’t given it much thought? Well, you should.
Our Fore Fathers weren’t “average folk” in their hood —

they fashioned their stories to encompass the good
that they previsualized; providing the future would…

recycle_green-logo.gifCycle. Understand. Embrace. Grow.
Recycle. ReUnderstand. ReEmbrace. ReGrow.

That’s just how life goes.

Educate thyself and chart productivity in your life.
CALL IT once – call it twice. Still no results? Call it thrice.

Remember that old saying, “If at first, you don’t succeed…”
then try a second time or three.

Okay, the last part of the saying – I totally paraphrased.
The point is that you should try again at every opportunistic day.

Do not give up on you or your life’s haul.
Don’t know your purpose? Boo, it is yours to call.

CALL IT.
Don’t hide behind circumstances that stall it.

How do you want your life story to go?
Take a minute to think before heading to and fro.

Previsualize what you’d like to accomplish in the end –
then meditate and pray for guidance to manifest your intend.

God is with you – so don’t worry Boo,
you can’t go wrong in seeking the purpose of you.

The day is young and life is in you – what are you going to do?
I’m Qui
Appreciating thee for your purpose in rolling through.

May blessings reign. To stressing: please stall it.
Life is at hand, don’t live it bland
how do you want it to go? CALL IT.

You got this.

TUESDAY FUSE-DAY

DYNAMITE INVENTOR: Alfred Nobel

Good morning, good morning – it’s early right now.
I’m up sharpening techniques that will feed my cash cow.

I’m Science researching & script rehearsing – I’ve got so much to do.
But not too much to the point – that I’ve no time for you.

Good morning sweetheart and how do you do? Are you ready to begin?
I’m no Jerry Epstein, I’m content with you – no need to bring a friend.

What is this “skull & crossbones gin” that mass men have been drinking?
Enjoying a culture of “rich perverted vulture;” positive morale is… stinking.

The Epstein case sounds like an industrial pack of Black Cats mid-popping at an early stage.
We’ve got a long fireworks show to go because Jerry likes girls of a very young age.

Ah. Remember when fireworks were all the rage?
Teen love should not be an Elders lay.

Amen and clear-the-phlegm; that’s all that the law has to say.
Beyond that, do have an enlightening and exciting Tuesday.

I really hope that you do.
I’m up to meditate; praying for positive vibes to come through.

I’m in love with humanity; I’m in love with you.
I’m grateful to God for your life and glad that you were able to roll through.

What good will the next twelve hours introduce you to?
Me? I’ve got a project before me that I need to see through.

Mostly editing work.
I’ll do it inside in heels and a skirt.

May as well. Tuesdays are all-the-way live.
Besides, I’ll be walking on the carpet; it’s too hot to go outside.

How’s the weather where you are? Comfortable – I pray.
I won’t lie to you, kinfolk, I keep the air conditioner between 75 and 68

with dreams to drop the degrees by an additional ten.
Energy is real; I’m mindful to not overspend.

So what will this day find you getting in?
Whatever you choose, I bid you a win.

Life is short – do not take any of it for granted.
Get up and do you; tell the universe: you ‘demand it.’

Self-light the fuse that will deliver you to your worth;  reap truer pay.
I’m Qui
about you and me, the collective we and the opportunities of a Tuesday.

Pick & choose your fuse.

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on July 10, 2019 at 5:45 am

Bey Slay.gif

Hey, hey, hey!” Sounding like Rodg’s friend Dwayne,
What’s Happening” with you; how’s the view in your lane?

Me? I’m awake and up for goodgame.
Me? I’m the vehicle in the creative lane.

You? You’ve been on my mind for quite some time now;
different reasons ‘why‘ and dimensions on the ‘how.’

Believe me now, when I say that I’m enjoying the climb
that has delivered me to this day; my creative grind.

I’m happy y’all.
In a world of uncertainty, I have the gall.
I wish happiness for us all.
Flex your positive gall.

It’s Hibbity Hump Day, which sounds a lot like “hibbity hop.”
Saying “hibbity hop” reminds me of The Sugar Hill Gang – Hip Hop don’t stop.

Something like The HUSTLER’S CONVENTION, I’m a one-stop Griot shop.
I’m something like Lightnin’ Rod; The HC is not a publication that you can cop

but you can stay tuned to multiple flows like my own, for most Griotte’s are quite steady.
We are storytellers of the day born. I learned as much from Fab5Freddy.

I forget not, much. I am intrigued by various moves made.
I chronicle the view in rhyme. Griot is my mode of Slay.
Hey.

Hey-hey-hey!” I’m quoting Dwayne Nelson again,
I’m Qui
atop of this hump glad to be purveying and conveying What’s Happening.

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.
Come with. This vantage view is better with a friend.

Every day is a sweet treat.

Good morning sweetheart. How goes your morn?
I’m up feeling refreshed – waiting on the dawn.

May I get you a cup of jo and a warm face towel?
Would you like an additional consonant? How about a vowel?

Ooo child, the fun that I had over the Fourth of July weekend
included me, fireworks and a rather knowledgeable gentleman.

A really good friend
is always well-worth the spend.

The #ThoughtfulPositions that we find ourselves in…
Museful Monday come hug me; I’m most thankful for friends

that can meet me in thought and inject a win.
This is exactly how I want my week to begin:

I’m SO GONE with thoughts
of overlays that I’ve been taught.

Thank you, o’ relative fun-day.
I remain excited about my Museful Monday’s.

What bringeth you – me, to further top
just what I know is cooking in the shop?

Creativity in my composition has been renewed.
I filled ‘the pot’ with sweet grinds and it brewed.

Ooo-oo-oo.
Good Morning Museful MondayI’m so into you.

You’re strong and firm; comparable to Trinity/thrice.
I commit to sip intellectualism like CROWN ROYAL on ice:

Oh, I  appreciate this day, my life, my health, and my strength,

Content this morning about my museful friend. Let the dawn begin.
