SUPER SOUL SUNDAY Encouragement

In News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on September 29, 2019 at 6:16 am

REVISIONIST HISTORY by Malcolm Gladwell is worth listening to and reading into.
He has been watching and chronicling the world; what we’re going through.

I am always in search of SUPER SOUL fuel
and I know there’s some in-excess on OWN’s tube.

So I drop in to tickle my ears with such chime –
and to my delight I was introduced to Malcolm this time.

I’ve met many others on OWN who share the good that they ahere.
I have met him, him, him, her and Norman Lear.

There are so many good people sending out good vibes into the world.
We don’t have to know them all personally, but Oprah is their girl

and through her we are all able to see goodness full blown.
There’s nourishment in narrative and reality shows on OWN.

It’s good to know that we have places to go to when we need to recharge,

Good morning to thee, today is a great day to seek out and talk to the Lord.
Honestly, it’s because of him that you shine so hard. #Talk2Him

The Climax is About The CLIMATE

Copulation.

Wanna turn me on? Quit the fuel and ride a bike.
I’m an ecological kind of girl; I’m clear on what I like.

I keep it clean and convey clear, because I want you to see.
I pick up trash anywhere and everywhere around me.

You feel me? Do you like it?
We can go tit-for-tat and get excited.

You wanna do that?
The CLIMATE is in trouble and our temps are Climaxed.

Did you know that we can combat that?
We cannot stop it but we can roll it back.

If we re-instate regulations put in place by President 45
we can work hard to repair Earth and sustain our lives.

Young Greta Thunberg isn’t intimidated by age at all,
she showed up yesterday and let the world feel her gall.

I appreciate her, y’all and I was deeply moved.
The world is in a funk – it’s time to change our groove.

Stella Got Her Groove Back and now Earth want’s hers.
We have had our conveniences too long; it’s time they hit the curb.
Ya heard?
To ‘be fruitful and multiply‘ is still #Word.

Trying to be fruitful and multiply is not being effectively spent,
because Gen’s X, Y, and Z are having trouble paying the rent.

Speaking of Generations, who’s the genius that labeled today’s children: Generation Z?
You thought you were clever, you’re going to hate the next scene:

You get old and fate is mean…
Plant a tree and pray that our land remains green.
The youth are awake, wiser and keen.
You’re not really a luster if you have no sheen;
not much at all without a Middle Class steam.

We’ve been copulating for far too long – The Climax is nothing to fear,
I’m Qui

I’m jones’ing for you, sir.
My words are infinite towards either pendulant girth.

I understand your worth.
I’ve no problem treating you first.

Are you down o’ man?
Sit next to me and Hold My Hand.

little rascal-spanky_chocolate cake.gifIt’s obvious that I’m concerned about men.
White men, black men, male seeds; my friends.

Where is your mind, what are your thoughts?
Do you know that my love for you can’t be bought?

I am wondering about the topic and what you’ve been taught.
I’m a mother of mindful thinking; abolishing the “after thought.”

You are what you say and you feel what you feel.
Woman is your counterpart; she nourishes and heals.

The boys club can be a fun place when mother takes care of the rest.
You were not born a goalie; blocking your blessings – is not your test.

You know what you need best; I respect you and I agree.
Please be respectful while I do the same for me.

Get in the mind frame of us being a team of WE.
When you think of yourself, do you think about me?

I hope you do, because if our daughters ever find out that you don’t —
Family will still exist, but for you it won’t.

We can’t sustain a life where you feel sorry for yourself
and complain about what you don’t have, while you pocket all the wealth.

I need you to be the superior being that you are and to show the kids
how when the world seems out of reach that you have a connective bid.

Diplomacy, common sense and love can go far.
Use what God gave you: brains and heart.

It’s a good idea to find love in your youth.
Youth equates to just being alive – o’ dude. 😛

No specimen without life is considered to be young.
To live life in the dark is to be considered dumb.

You are not unintelligent and you are not overlooked.
Don’t let negative emotions cause you to feel shook.

Feeling down? You’re not alone – though I need you to shine.
Disney took-on this issue in A WRINKLE IN TIME.

Did you see it?
If not, you can read it.

Whatever you do –  “heed it,” and evolve again.
Life was made for two and circumstances were made to bend.

There’s a relationship issue on the table.
We can turn things around; together we are able.

Listen here, MISSY.

You are still ‘the joint.
When you hit the stage, it’s still an anoint.

Do your thang. Do your thang.
It’s good to know that you and Timbaland still hang.

Together you are “the lit.
and your album, ICONOLOGY is so very legit.

Carry on beloved and please take with you this )))HUG(((,

MAW Has Vision

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on September 16, 2019 at 4:45 am

Lois-Lane-Xray-Vision.jpgI am sure that I am not the only one who knows that Mother Nature and your Mother have superior vision over a host of mysteries that plague a young mind. As long as you live on Earth you will be an adolescent to Mother Nature; not ever an elder. Global Warming has been a thorn in her atmosphere for a very long time and her immune system is fighting back.

Earth will heat up to whatever degree it needs to eradicate her issue. I think our fuel convenience and animal farming is a large part of her issue. I enjoy a chicken sandwich and a hamburger as much as the next American, but to what enth of a degree?

Did your mother ever say to you, “Don’t cut off your nose to spite your own face?” Could you imagine doing such a thing? It sounds silly.

Q: Who would cut off their nose, as if they do not need it on their face? It’s ridiculous. Worst than that, who poison’s the world’s oxygen knowing full well that they, themselves need oxygen to breathe and stay alive?

A:  Humans.

When I was an adolescent and my mother was away from the house and things would go awry between my siblings and me, if I was victimized I’d be the first to say, “I’m telling Mom!”  Mom is a term of respectful endearment but is synonymous with Mama, Mommy, Ma’dear, and even MAW. She gives birth; life. She is for her children’s future – even when their vision is short or tunneled.

Earth is being victimized and I think we need to listen to MAW: Marianne Williamson before we unknowingly burn down our home. Respect Mother Earth and vote to live in a world that offers fresh air to breathe and clean water to drink and respect for every human — because YOU DESERVE IT. The love that a mother has for her children is often misunderstood, but in most cases, she without thought would give her life to save yours. I am only asking for your vote. I am a mother, I love you, and I just want you to live.

What will it take to get you to see
that a maternal love may be the key?

Why not?
Afraid that she’ll wipe our snot?

Do you really prefer a nose full of boogers?
Crystalized mucus is not the same as sugar.

Daddy didn’t tell you because he didn’t know.
Mom grabs a tissue, your nostrils and to town she goes.

It doesn’t feel good, but you look and breathe much better.
Mind you much if she takes a go at healing the weather?

We may not like what she will prescribe…
She will apply the RX to sustain our lives.

Look alive and stay alert. I need you on this.
You may be over 35, but what about the rest of the kids?

Don’t let ill-intentions be hidden, as if we can control burning only half of the house down.
Thinking like that is as archaic as dinosaurs; dinosaurs are no longer around.

If you feel me give me a pound and check out MAW today.
You don’t have to be for #GirlPower to want to live another day.

Just be: For Life.

When I read about the fires in California and the Amazon’s all over the world,
It became quite obvious to me that we may need to listen to a girl…

Her name is EARTH.

Are you listening? Because she’s talking to us all,
I’m Qui
a part of Earth’s “WE” and I truly believe it’s time to listen to MAW.

Have you the gall?

You control the narrative. 😛

 

Listen to YOU.

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on September 15, 2019 at 11:42 am

NEWS PERUSE_GossipI be listening to you, but are you listening too?
You’re talking and making points that you don’t quite follow through.

Your inner-wisdom is what I like about you.
Though sometimes it seems that you’ve never met you.

You have a gun for the sole use of shooting your own foot.
You’re as wise as the greats but sometimes walk with a crook.

What gives?” I ask of you and in turn, you ponder.
You conjure good for everyone else, but for your own well being, you wander…

You think that you are without a clue?
Stop talking to others and Listen to YOU:

Yep. Oprah knows this too – so don’t you be the last one,
I’m Qui
Listening out for WE on this Sabbath day of fun.

When it comes to #SelfPreservation, I always want some.

Keep On Trucking On

black-truck.gifAnother morning to another day full of opportunity.
Rise early to get a start on what is about to be.

You do want IN on this – don’t you?
Good morning beloved, it’s Day 1 after 2.

You got that, right?
I slept rather hard last night

after putting in a whole lot of work.
Hard work could kill – so thank God no one was hurt.

I dated a shoot; with “the script,” I’m a flirt.
Directing myself in a scene isn’t easy; a talented skirt.

I pulled it off.
The challenge was great – I didn’t choke or cough.

It was a good time had; storytelling is something that I love.
I’m in two scenes out of seven – pulling a Spike Lee can be rough.

What about you? What have you been into?
It’s Day 3 for you and me. Let’s jit-up to push it through.

I think that it’s going to be good for you. Are you ready?
Previsualize and focus, enter with intentions; keep it steady.

Aw yeah! You’re ready! There ain’t nothing that you can’t do.
When a problem arises you just Keep On Trucking On through.

I dig that about you. Do it again today!
Tell me, love, do you meditate, do you pray?

I do, and I pray that you will be stronger all the more.
Time with you in the morn is time that I adore.

Goal!!! Let this Hump Day be a score for us,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’ve got nothing but pallets of love.

Keep pushing positivity. The route is to be dug.

I’m into both.

Good morning baby. How are you? How was your weekend spent?
We’re only 9-days into September, which would equate to at least 4-days late in rent.

I hope you know nothing about that. I used to work in Real Estate.
The rent was due day 1-4 and by the 5th day, it was late.

Anywho and woop-ti-woo! How are you feeling today?
I’m feeling rad – ‘gonna work from the pad and utilize gamification/play.

I sure wish that you and I could parlay today. I’d like to run some things by ya.
I’ve drafted a narrative series concept that I think has the potential to be some fire.

I do love Mondays. Herein is what goodness is made of.
A new view, yet thoroughly thought through; a blessed revolving hug.

Life is doing her thing. I am courteous to let her come through.
Earth is on her cycle and she isn’t going to stop. What about you?

Global warming is no longer a warning. We are living in a heated Earth.
Folk: it’s time to change our tune, emissions within are a fatal girth.

So I bought a cruiser bike last week and I’m shopping for a new motor ride.
One that will not require so much fossil fuel. It’s time to put that aside.

I won’t lie to you kinfolk, honestly, I barely drive.
I walk, I run… I am a fan of staying inside.

I stayed inside the house quite a bit this weekend.
I studied pretty hard and hung out with a girlfriend.

She’s my favorite. We dined light and worked out hard.
Good friends with good vibes are necessary for a good heart.

I’m up early because I’m feeling refreshed!
I’m up early and ready to input my best.

Are you up for it?
Monday is at hand – come on, let’s score it.

Life is yours. Don’t play it coy; rise with vigor and adore it!
I’m Qui
A happy and honest she; positivity is an accelerator. Let’s floor it!

Oh, I’ve been thinking…

thnking-baby

As if I ever stop thinking.
For if I retreat from my thoughts, I may resort to drinking.

Who am I fooling? I am already familiar with the practice.
At the end of the day, my vodka toast to tomorrow is “I got this.”

sir ben kingsly toast.gif

Oh yes, Happy Friday! I insist on being such today.
I’ve got my scripts and a camera on my hip – I am ready to play

because I’ve been thinking… and a bit too much.
I’ve been busy with intellectualism and less with love.

For that, I apologize.
I’m a woman about quality and less about the size.

Good morning sweetheart. Open and focus your beautiful eyes.
The world is at hand, what doth this day hold in surprise?

To God be the glory and the limit is the sky,
I’m Qui
Up thinking about longevity, you and I.

Let’s prepare to go long.
Let’s pray that our love and compassion remain strong.
Pray for fam in the Bahamas, FL, and VA who’ve lost their homes.
Oh, I’m thinking that being united in love isn’t wrong.

Let’s focus on THE LORAX, i.e., HOME:

CHARACTER Much

In Communication, Griot, Movies, News, Science, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on September 3, 2019 at 4:45 am

WESTWORLD encompasses the epitome of Character Creation:
.

Please tell me, (especially if you’re the reader/writer type) that you have at least a mental bank of bad-arse characteristics and traits that you like your film subjects to possess. If you said you don’t – it’s likely that on the surface you do not realize that you do. Whatever your favorite movie/show is – the protagonist (star) of that show or their co-star (that keeps you glued to the scene) possesses some type of bad-arse characteristic that you like.

Me? I’m a writer. I create stories — most are inspired by life circumstances and situations. I craft them from specific highlights to broadly general, depending on what “the message” calls for. Story is told through characters. I love dissecting and creating new characters – so yes, I CHARACTER Much.

I have learned a lot from some of my favorite shows of the past – and not all were fiction. I am still learning tons about character traits from my current favorite shows like BILLIONS and SUCCESSION. Don’t even get me started on the content inside of POWER’s character bible. I’ll bet it’s intense and likely a bit shocking, but I’m up for the read.

Let’s look at some very familiar and strong characters that I admire:
Click the name of the show to learn the inner-workings of the character. Click on the actor/actresses’ name to read more about their social-media life.

LOGAN ROY (Succession) – The actor who pulls it off: Brian Cox
BOBBY AXELROD (Billions) – The actor who pulls it off: Damian Lewis
OLIVIA POPE (Scandalous) – The actor who pulls it off: Kerri Washington
ANALISE KEATING (How To Get Away with Murder)  – The actor who pulls it off: Viola Davis
TOMMY EAGAN (Power) – The actor who pulls it off: Joseph Sikora
JAMIE ST. PATRICK (Power) – The actor who pulls it off: Omari Hardwick
RILEY NORTH (Film: Peppermint – 2018) – The actor who pulls it off: Jennifer Garner
MAEVE MILLAY (Westworld) – The actor who pulls it off:  Thandie Newton
LARA CRAFT (Tomb Raiders) – The actor who pulls it off, Angelina Jolie
LORRAINE BROUGHTON (Atomic Blonde) – The actor who pulls it off: Charlize Theron
MINNY JACKSON (The Help) – The actor who pulls it off: Octavia Spencer

What characters, characteristics, and traits do you admire; which ones inspire you? Have you ever adopted any of those traits for yourself? If you have not – I wonder what adopting a new trait would look like in your life. If you have adopted a trait from a favorite character – I’m curious as to how that’s working out for you?

filmstrip_divider

I won’t lie to you, I have a little bit of all of them residing inside of me.
I CHARACTER Much for specific benefits; I CHARACTER Much for film and TV.

I rarely watch a thing without analyzing the dialogue and who’s saying it.
I rarely watch the view of any hue that’s half-hearted and not “slaying it.”

I like to learn, people. I enjoy experiencing and mirroring what moves you.
I CHARACTER Much after studying such, then I craft a comparable role in a new groove.

Award-winning compositions are proof that character traits “make the show,”
I’m Qui
Life imitates art all of the time. Does your personal character have any glow?

Find a character with spunk, style, and pizzaz then take some notes.
Let the positive traits of character inspire you to grow.
