Bring Back HOPE

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on August 30, 2019 at 10:17 am

We Can Do It.

Bring it back, bring it back – to every Mr. and every Ms.
Bring Back HOPE and I don’t mean Ms. Hicks.

Speaking of, I hope that she is doing well,
for her former co-worker has rung the quitting bell.

All is well that ends well…
only if there are no secrets to tell.

I’m not interested in any secrets.
Time is of the essence and we need to beat it.

Earth is on fire at our own doing
and the stock market is subject to conflation screwing.

Folks aren’t just standing around waiting for their chips to fall —
we are a wise people and recognize that our systems are full of gall.

Don’t doze off to sleep now. This is the very minute to be awake.
The future of the planet needs us. If we fail to heed, we’ll surely bake.

Don’t let a greedy man burn your land for greedy cash;
yielding our world to cancer and turning our air filters into ash.

I arose this morning feeling pretty stoked
that regardless of what we’ve all heard… there is HOPE.

And it’s back with a fever-pitched passion.
Be excited that HOPE hasn’t gone out of fashion.

Meditate on the good and all that is well.
Meditate on knowing your destination is not hell.

Meditate on being a part of Earth’s solution.
Stay focused and prayerful; don’t yield to confusion.

Don’t bang your head against the wall, you’ll get a contusion.
Stand strong in HOPE. Bring her inside of our evolution.

We need a long-term solution to an issue that is pushing humanity to a brink,
I’m Qui
Good morning sweetheart, Bring Back HOPE and Be PROACTIVE. What do you think?

We Can Do It.

The 1st POWER Hour

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, TV Shows on August 26, 2019 at 11:43 am

Last night was Day 1 of STARZ’s finale season of POWER starring Omari Hardwick,
and Poncho got smoked because Tommy ain’t no ‘witch.

You get it — what I’m saying, but did you see it?
It was 9 scenes after Tommy and Ghost’s beef/riff.

LaLa was pleasantly curvaceous and strapped in her scenes.
Her son, Cash has grown up; he curses now – and everything…

Agent Saxe is running around thinking that Ghost killed AUSA Angela Valdez.
Tommy put one in her chest while trying to put one in Ghost’s head.

You read what I said. It happened on POWER.
I sat on the edge of my seat for the entire Hour.

32-minutes in and Tommy pulls a gun on Poncho
because he said Tommy “ain’t shit without Ghost.”
Woah.

Poncho got smoked.
The 1st POWER Hour wasn’t no joke.

Let Poncho be a lesson to the lot of us
that the rest of the finale season of POWER may be ruthless and rough.

The creative writers of this narrative series have guts. I’m watching and nail-biting.
Still, I stay tuned because the power of the write is stimuli/exciting.

Proctor showed up on the scene just to get inside of Federal crosshairs.
Tasha told Ghost that she wants a divorce; she’s done with being a pair.

AUSA Angela Valdez and her sister.

Angela Valdez’s sister gave Ghost a piece of her mind.
He offered to pay for her funeral and the gesture was met ‘unkind.

Angela’s sister is now working with Agent Saxe
in a move to avenge Angela; to get Ghost back.

Tasha kept calling Terry Silver’s cell phone with certain thoughts in her head
like this is the only way to hear his voice– her gut feeling says “he’s dead.”

And I think that her gut right.
LaKeisha threw a gun into the bay in the middle of the night.
See what I mean about “written delights?”
She was fulfilling Tommy’s request; helping to protect his life.

He killed Angela with that gun.
Yes! The 1st POWER Hour was so much fun.

10-minutes to the 60-minute mark and Ghosts sits in a parked SUV loading another firearm.
A great deal of ART IMITATING LIFE is seen in this episode; a reflection of peril and alarm.

Tarik found a noir way to connect with Ghost over the phone
channeling his own pain of loss since Kanan’s gone.

Perhaps it was all “theatrics.” Crazy stuff.
Such a POWERful ride is bound to be rough.

Popping collars and pulling cuffs – I’m glad that this season is alive and well,
I’m Qui
Tommy and Jason saw the bullets Ghost’s unleashed and vow to send him to hell.

The 1st POWER Hour was no walk in the park.
At the end of Episode 1, Ghost is single and in the dark.

STS-dahn jon.jpgI decided to break from the grind of corporate contract winners
and dedicate some “me time” via the Tao Healing Center.

We met up in Sedona
Where big energy rests on ya.’

We did introspection reflections; we looked within ourselves.
The healing practice mainly costs you time for yourself.

Leave at home your mundane concerns and wealth – it’s not needed here.
Sedona has a reputation of internal peace and ‘wiping the mind clear.’

It totally and completely did it for me.
I resided in Sedona for days of 3.

Three is a small number  – though my internal organs received it as rigorous fun.
I practiced in converting STRESS TO STRENGTH with Tao Master Chun.

We acknowledged our Chakras and and focused on feelings to reconnect…
Then we hiked the Healing Gardens and visited an awesome vortex.

ALTERED CARBON

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Politics, Science, Self Improvement on August 24, 2019 at 6:51 am

Let’s talk about NETFLIX and all of their streaming…
let’s talk about ALTERED CARBON and it’s layered meanings…

I can’t begin to tackle the narrative series with certain clarity
because I just found it’s broadcast and the concept is “altering.”

The linguistics that encompass this show reflect a united world.
I like it – I won’t lie; I’m a linguistic and futuristic girl.

The protagonist in this piece
is an Asian guy wearing a white sleeve.

Looking like Rick Flag from SUICIDE SQUAD
with Jackie Chan’s moves and BLADE’s old bod.

Yes, Joel Kinnaman plays the series protagonist
who’s been re-bodied and remains on a shortlist

of ENVOY walkers.
Their bodies are weapons – they’re not big talkers.

Hand-to-hand combat scenes that look like video games
and the constant flashes of life before and after – are insane.

Have you seen such a thing?
The concept of avoiding death by dawning a new sleeve?

The body gets old, it can be injured and die,
but future technology is looking to re-home your essence of life.

Kind of like the concept of THE SIXTH DAY,
Joel is like Arnold Schwarzeneggar, in a way –

as in he has been re-bodied
and prefers a brew over yesterdays sake.

The writers have got me; I’m watching Season 1 in a binge.
I’m also concerned about mother Earth and her surface singe.

Fossil fuel is yesterdays rule and must come to an end.
Unless we want to be like the dinosaurs and cause Earth to start over again

without us inhabiting her land. For that would be a problem.
Earth is being mistreated by human issues. We can solve them.

At current, there is a 3-week old fire burning in the AMAZON
set by human beings — so it won’t bring the Apocalypse on,

but it will release MORE CARBON emissions into the air – a fatal falter.
Our air quality on Earth will degrade; our lives forever ALTERED.

But we’re not quite like the Netflix show.
We only have this life and this one body sleeve, yo.

What are we doing?
Earth is not the woman that we want to be screwing.

She is willing to be silent and let you burn and die off.
Thinking about space travel? Today it is not yours to be bought.

PUT THE FIRE OUT. Cease and desist on the idea of making a profit.
God gave the Earth to all of us – before you destroy it, He’ll stop it.

He won’t come back as in bursting through the clouds,
because man has put forth plans to burn mother Earth to the ground.

But He will continue to look after His children who remain fair
and secure a pit for those who support Earth’s fiery land snares.

It’s simple. Think about it for just one minute.
When folks set traps for others, they, themselves fall in it.

It’s old news, its life news. There’s nothing new about this story.
So if you’re wondering if Jesus is on his way? This is no invitation to glory.

This is a tale being told by a man.
If you’re a praying person, God has a plan.

Get in it and get busy caring for your Earth.
Selfish money hoarders, there’s a pit for your girth.

Pray for the world – yes! And remember God is mightier than Gibraltar,
I’m Qui
Up early thinking about CARBON emissions and things being ALTERED.

The bed you make will be your own.
To burn down the AMAZON is to burn down your own home.

YOU LIVE ON EARTH!

Good morning Goodness, how did you sleep?
Was it sound or in the round; was it refreshing and complete?

I sure hope so – I hit REM and stayed there a while.
I went to bed before 11. Ooo child. I laid stoic; I slept wild.

Did you dream, dear love? I did but I don’t remember the details.
I do recall that I was younger than 15, sheltered and wearing pigtails.

dancing unicornIt was sweet enough.
I awoke a woman in search of human touch.

I found it.
Good ol’ human touch keeps me grounded.

When was the last time that you touched somebody?

Good Morning Goodness. Are you ready for the hump?

Put your seatbelt on and cruise this out.

About The 1619 PROJECT

In Networking, News, Self Improvement on August 19, 2019 at 12:48 pm

black girl curtseyGood afternoon New York Times. How do you do?
I approach you with curtsey – I appreciate you.

Keep doing what you do. I am indeed an avid newspaper reader.
Tho I admit until just a minute, I hadn’t ever subscribed to your periodical seeder.

Admittedly, I’ve long admired your legacy trace;
and recently, your bravery (to the letter) on facing race.

Thank you. I read the 1619 install and I love it.
If words were a tangible matter – I’d hug it.

Which brings me to the topic of subscribing to your cause.
I have officially subscribed to NYT because you’ve got balls.

The 1619 Project should make us all take a pause.
If you love the United States, slaves are an integral part of our gall.

Our ancestors were recruited against their will.
They were hands-on in erecting our architecture and tending our fields.

Former slaves received no pay, no residual, no acres or a mule.
Slaves lost their lives firing up the US machine; this country’s fuel.

Over centuries of time, we are all grappling to understand,
what America has become and by whose hands.

From the plantations to the NFL-land,
what’s the beloved value of a black man?

jay z-nfl.jpgYou have to understand the music to get into the band.
America is at a pivotal point – don’t miss the chance
to take a stand.
Be a part of her future, today and tomorrow we dance.

Do better than the generations before.
The world is in need of a united score.

We have no time for divisive energy.
The world is heating up to a fatal degree.

Finances are volatile and economists fear a recess.
There are balances in the wind, that demand a check.

With our State Departments underemployed, who’s driving this ship?
The 1619 Project is a great understanding to build upon. Do take a sip.

I did
and it truly massaged my wig.

Check it out.
If nothing else, to know what it’s about.

A BLACK LADY SKETCH SHOW

Oh, snap! What’cha know – what’ cha know?
HBO is on fire with A BLACK LADY SKETCH SHOW.

We’re only 3 episodes in and I relate a hundred percent.
Issa Rae and Robin Thede create dough for the rent.

Binge-watching new episodes is how yesterday was spent.
Episode 4 airs on Wednesday; I’ll be watching with friends.

Get in where you fit in; be a social vulture.
If you have no black gf’s drop in on the culture.

It’s raw, it’s real and I like it very much.
I appreciate the cast for showcasing ‘the smooth & the rough:’

Black Ladies Sketch.jpg

The topics aren’t easy, yet they are comedy sketched.
They yield to thought and laughter; covertness – nixed. 😛

HBO’s new feminine view,
is one that you should cozy up to.

Black Lady’s are fun and confrontational; they wear hair bonnets and are rarely known to flake-up.
Some are also synonymous with “beat faces;” a flawless necessary – is her MAC and NARS make-up:

It’s a breakout show — sharing views you didn’t know.
A Black Lady Sketch Show is full of varieté that’s good-to-go.

Check it out, yo! I’ve got it on lock,

Yesterday was my annual celebration of birth.
I had a blast! Love was the gas the supported my worth.

I went shopping for bling-jewelry and attractive heeled shoes
as well as worked on a film that will be told in two.

Remember the short film that I told you about; a Part 1 and Part 2?
It’s title is UNCONQUERED AF and it’s relatively about you.

I’m digging the support of all who support me,
from my mom, to my neighbors, to the university.

Ooo wee & golly gee, I have got mad love for thee.
Reel support begets support and reel support is key.

Reciprocity has got me in the palm of her hand.
When friends need an assist, I pitch-in and lead the band.

Not because I have to — but because I can.
When it comes to keeping it Reel – I am fan.

Today finds me up early to close out Part 2 of my script composition
and to get ready for my birthday errands, that are well worth the mention

on another day. The a.m. hours are about fresh jo and footsie play.
My birthday will continue through the thirty-first day.

I’ll eat no cake this year, I don’t think –
and I’ve already broken the seal of fresh flower and the drink,
so
for me, you know that it’s going to be “ON” all weekend long.
I’ve got a designated driver because my wisdom is strong.

What are you getting into?
Whilst it be an intellectual or physical screw?

Why not engage in both?
To knowledge and internal exercise! – is how I toast.

Do raise your glass with…
For the next 15-days, I’m the birthday kid

I’m the one-year-sharper Ms. and I endeavor to party with you,
I’m Qui
and if you’re near a Rodeo Ranch nightclub – by all means, roll through.
I’ll be the girl on the mechanical bull; holding steadfast and true.

Though I’ll be donning a hat and thigh-high leather boots.
What kind of fun will you lend yourself to? Like I said – ‘roll on through.’

TUESDAY is a MOVES-DAY

Hit it!

Ah! Where to begin? There is so much to go through —
the day is early and I’ve much to tend to.

I’ve got a script to create, at least the bones of it.
The concept is strong; I nailed the film’s pitch.

It’s an all-encompassing piece – you know I have an itch,
for pulling us all-together and securing our stitch.

So this project is easily classified as a feel-good piece.
It’s dramatic and suspenseful during its short-timed release.

When it comes to scripting new roads – I’m a no limit beast.
The film topic is a well-thought fit, about the commonalities of WE.

nice teeth coexist.pngYou, me, he and she
and them and him; we’re America’s teeth

and we don’t have TMJDwe don’t self-grind.
In the trenches of diversity, we find commonality and we bind.

Am I right?
Well yeah… that’s the way I composed my scripted write.

Another cool thing that I’ve done while in compose
is to script-collaborate with another peer for a longer reel-roll.

In working with another student I can add time on the run of our scripted truths.
So, instead of the short being a total of 5 minutes, we can have 10 via Part 1 & Part 2.

You see what I’m doing here?
Enjoying school; applying gamification over fear.

Why not? I prefer to play all of the time.
I’m doing it right now via this griot rhyme.

Ha-ha! Rise and shine. I’m on one today,
I’m Qui
Glad to start things up with thee on this opportunistic Tuesday.

Go forth with purpose – commit to working the groove.
Make a plan, follow-through, go strong in doing you – conquer the task and bust a move!

PS – We haven’t had a NEWS PERUSE in a while
and while today isn’t the day for it I want to talk about SIMONE BILE.
Ooo child!
She is one outstanding and dynamic gymnastic warrior princess.
Her physical capacity is tops, though her inner-woman view is best!
She’s graceful
on the balance beam as well as getting things off of her chest.

Concentrate.

Are you THINKING ABOUT YOU? I am certainly thinking about me.
I promise to God over the last few days I’ve had the most amazing sleep.

The REM kind; it’s a state of deep sleep
where dreams are vivid and yield an intentional reap.

Yes dear sweet, I have.
Then I awake to the vantage view of comics and laugh.

Are you still laughing?gassy_girl
So hard that you cry and are gas passing?

 

I hope not the latter, but just in case,
keep your tuckus firmly planted and out of folks face.

It’s okay. I’m THINKING ABOUT YOU,
and the good in this day that you are due.

Partake of the 24-hour fruit.
Taste it, don’t waste it; chew it through.

It’s good for you and nourishing too.
Stand with positive purpose and push on through.

The weekend is in view and yesterday is the past,
I’m Qui
Thinking about
the future and how to make the good last.

Therefore
