No Time for Woozy – The Weekend is a Doozy

I couldn’t have planned to “avoid protestors” when I made plans to travel a month ago.
Therefore, my weekend plans for Cali did not pop-off like I had planned, yo.

The hotel that I frequent is a beautiful downtown erection.
Memories are rooted in the brick; my personal connection.

So when I’m out in Cali, I relax and do what I do.
This time Cali’s sweet embrace tasted a little brut.

Ooo-ooo. It was the collected pain of a united people crying out loud.
Protests for George Floyd reminded many state’s about disappointing crowds.

Protesting is a serious process and is no process by which to play;
I appreciate the mild understanding of law enforcement on the first two days.

Folks were marching by day and looting by night.
Police were present; most did not fall to provocation and fight.

I saw a collected effort.

It was truly an amazing sight, by and large.
Though a few folk on both sides may be charged.

No protest is perfect.
When change is needed society works it.

I appreciate how the majority of law officials behaved,
“to vent frustration” — is what the people crave.

And they did.

Their frustrations (with high-end stores) – were not hid.
Did the protesters make a point? Why yes, they did.

Cali got serious and imposed a curfew.
I was just on hiatus for a day or two.

It’s clear that I could have stayed home and hidden inside of my place.
It would have cost me no gas, no hotel, no road trip — just safe.

Safe living is everything.
Though traveling to and fro makes my heart sing

and my creativity ring!
Until things calm down, I’ll curb my hiatus scenes

to be more conducive to what the writer in me essentially needs.
I am inspired to produce after watching you; you are my script-seed.

Ooo wee, I’m so glad the Sabbath has finally arrived.
Thing were much clearer upon the opening of my eyes.

Biking-on-crosswalk_hit-by-car

In the thick of it – I remained unharmed.

I have survived a hairy hiatus; I am grateful and alive.
I think I’ll fashion a hiatus room at home. It may be high-time.

What do you think? I think I just might.
How have you spent your weekend days and nights?

Did you have a little fun, is your health alright?
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. For us, there is a new day nigh.

Join me in sending up thanks beyond the sky.
If for no other reason — because we are both alive.’

I will woosah again once I’m home and safe inside.

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, love, you, and I.

Let’s prepare to go long.

Let’s re-focus on THE LORAX and our home:

THURSDAY is HER DAY

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on May 28, 2020 at 5:15 am

thursday.jpgMe and Thursdays — we go way back
like 4 new tires on a Cadillac.

It just is what it is.
I’m all about that ‘Thursday biz.’

What are you up to today?
Is everything everything? Are you feeling okay?

Did you sleep well last night? Tell me, love, did you dream?
I did and I loved it – I’m up to research what it means.

Do you ever do that? Research your dream for a dimensional reveal?
Or when you dream something vivid do you blame your last meal?

Either way, good morning goodness. I’m so glad that we’ve made it this far.
I have a shoot this morning – my favorite healing arts star.

What? You don’t know of one? You implore the help of MD’s when you’re in pain?
Please don’t limit your access to good health – call a masseuse, a therapist, a saint!
For God sake, do not lower your quality of life because of pain.

During my documentary research, I learned much about the benefit of humans moving.
This morning via movement, I am up, showing-and-proving.’ What are you doing?

Do something for thyself on this day.
No other day is promised – please have it your way.

When was the last time that you went outside and played?
Thursday’s are verse-days; express your inner-kid today.

Me? I’m due on set in a few short minutes.
Experience is mine for the making; I’m in it to win it.

I’m making egg-scramble for breakfast: sausage-egg-potato.
I’d love to feed you, as well; consume breakfast before you go.

Rise and sip this jo that I have prepared for you.
Let me bid you a productive day filled with good energy through and through.

Whether or not you have to work the weekend, get jitted up, anyway – to win,
I’m Qui
and Thursdays are my day’s to shape the week’s end. It’s always good to start it out with a friend.

I appreciate you in my morning spend.

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 27, 2020 at 8:21 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.

Or a LOVEBIRD:

Terrific Tuesday

Talk about keeping time — it’s Day 2 already.
I’m up with my jo and collegiate notes, to comprehend a vibe more “steady.”

Are you ready? The feeling that is waxing me is quite warm.
My heart is receptive to your forthright charms.

Come with it, Tuesday.
I’m a tapered wick on this fuse day.candle-light-flame.gif

Light me up. I can stand it.
There’s opportunity on the horizon and I want to hand it

to us both.
Honing it will take some considerable growth.

You’ve grown an inch already this week. Ooo, la-la, look at you.
Let your growth reflect in your work; be a Friday on Day 2.

Me? The last few months of school are trying and very spiked —
with an over abundance of work. The kind of flow that I like.

Tuesday: make me feel alright about letting go of it all at the end.
Learning sustains creativity’s churning – the university’s my best friend.

Learning and I will continue to date. I’m a steady girl, no doubt.
And we’ll make love through scripted doves; morale’s my goto pal.

Yesterday was beautiful, yesterday is gone.
Today is about we. Rise like a Phoenix; be strong.

Be who you want to be today; mess up your perfect hair.
All is fair in love – no war. Good vibes were made to share.

Are you vibing good, and is all well?
Are you fulfilled and happy with yourself?

Mondays are miraculous muse-days…
Please enjoy the Fibonacci inside of this Tuesday.

I am already in route.
As the day progresses, I’ll fill it out.

A spiral of goodness that is the capacity of our merits.
To be alive and to feel yields this day to be Terrific.

Do you feel it? Start with affirmations and let the vibe well-up in your chest.
I’m Qui
Celebrating Day 2 with thee, because we do it best. Go forth and conquer all; your drive is the test.

Work-It-Out.

Remember the heroes of yesterday…
they are the reason that you can safely play

outside at the park, in transit and at the game.
If it weren’t for our brave military our existence would be bane.

Have a Mindful Memorial Day to the survivors of those who we’ve lost.
We may not understand your depths, though we recognize your cost.

As you kneel, I’ll drape a cape on you and dust you off.
You, who were charged with carrying on; your hearts so soft.


.

Thank you for the sacrifice:
children, hubby and wife.

Thank you for sharing your heart, your boy and your girl.
A Mindful Memorial Day; let’s remember the brave that shaped our world.

They are only “dead” when we forget to be thankful for their sacrifice,

Have a Mindful Memorial Day baby – Democracy costs a high price.

Memorial Tutorial

In Communication, Griot, News on May 23, 2020 at 5:30 pm

waving-American-flag.

The celebratory reason behind Memorial Day is pretty simple info:
The hype is about honoring soldiers who died in battle, so

Let’s do it big.
Had they not died, you may not have that wig.

Wig? Yes. It’s the applications that is your “status quo” life:
Your career, your home, cars, kids and your beautiful wife.

You know?
Things would look different if soldiers hadn’t died, yo.

Don’t even get me started on battles you weren’t even born to endure…
There are dates that chronicle monumental memories you ought to honor to your core.

There are soldiers who died for your very rights
to bear arms inside of the capitol building ; a constitutional plight.

bear-arms_constitution-and-gun

Remember those who made it possible to reside in “the land of the free.”
This weekend focus on their contributions; the depth of their memories.

Tell your familiar youth historical stories; rack up some legacy love.
Throw in a mention of “the Creator;” tell them that someone’s watching above.

Let them know that they, nor yourself — are alone in life’s emotion of seas.
This Memorial Day do celebrate.  Your ancestors are guardians to thee.

And to all of the surviving warriors, who went out to battle and came home again,
you’re a national hero every where that you go; every American need ‘call you a friend.

O’ patriot to the end — I’m talking about me and my love for you,
I’m Qui
Happy Memorial Day, Soldier! Life would not be as great in the states without you.

Please accept this Griot Salute.
Appreciation across this nation?

We got you.

APPRECIATEis what we do.

Infographic by Thesaurus Plus

Just because you misplaced your keys 3 times in the same hour,
don’t let it turn your good mood to sour.

Let up on watching television and play more brain games.
The mind is great and beautiful; a terrible thing to waste.

So, don’t be a waste. I’ll add to that and ever so blunt,
Appearing to be addle – is a label that you don’t want.

No siree. Not you. Not me.
Ain’t nobody ever in history
raised their hand and said “Addle? Yeah. That’s me!”
Not one person; not one – nary.

Today is WORD PLAY WEDNESDAY and I wanted to introduce a new word.
According to world news on our country’s views, “addle” is our verb.

Yep. It seems to be word; an adjective sum for our lack.
I just thought I’d let you know, “Yes. Folks are talking behind our back.” :/

But you knew that. No need to conjure up a new fuss.
Remember I mentioned a few weeks back that we may be on the shorter bus.

Remember? Naw. That wasn’t back in November; that was in March.
Yeah, we meant to be great; we meant to be smart.

It’s okay America. We will eventually pull through.
There’s a general election that requires our due.

The election is in November.
Set an alarm for it – so that you remember.

Vote by mail-in ballot if you can because COVID will still be around.
If you cannot just wear PPE to poll-vote in town.

This election will prove to be profound and fundamental to what life will look like;
lest we remain in the feeble lane while all the other countries shape global life.

We got this! Voting is your privilege – it is being challenged and battled.
I pray that we all vote clearly; lest we continue to collectively look addle.

The word “addle” can be used as an adjective or a verb,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Please do not forget this word:

Monday Morning Goodness

Goodness always rises – so rise, kinfolk, rise!
Thank God for the day as you open your eyes.

Pull the curtains back and look into the sky,
then hit the home gym, because you’re high on life.

You don’t have a home gym? You’re just not living that large?
Who are you kidding? You have the living room and a big ol’ garage.

Those spaces are good enough! You just need a little room.
Resort to exercise and reading more to forgo “outing dooms.”

It is not safe to mingle and relax social distancing rules; take it slow.
Going out is for essential workers, city managers and confused folk?

I love us all, but we have got to be real.
You may be bored indoors, but COVID19 has the field.

Please don’t feel invincible now;
don’t say “frack it” and go out anyhow.

I really don’t understand…
Why don’t we act more cautious across the land?

For the sake of capitalism?
Hmph. I raise you 1 wisdom:

clowns-in-clown-car

Don’t ride with the clowns.

Don’t join that clown-cramped parade.
The country opening up “regardless” – is a charade.
Science says: “It just isn’t safe.”

Monday Morning Goodness, please be good to us on a whole.
Help us to resist walking and running into a big ol’ hole.

We can do this.
Common sense and compassion will pull us through this.

Don’t huff & puff or hiss — because you have to keep your distance today,
I’m Qui
Excited about we, Mondays and Goodness.  Our united legacy is in play.
