So whats on the tele?

It’s Monday again, but what does it mean?
Are we to comprehend what others say just to unravel at the seams?

Me think not.
The day is young and the seat ain’t hot.

Is it?
I woke up early to Griot spit-it.
What about you? TAG! You’re it.

the-gavel.gifWhat are your intentions to see this day through?
It’s a friendly question from me to you.

What sayest ye on this Monday, good fellow?
Did you sleep well last night; was your weekend mellow?

Mine was. Regardless of the relentless hug
that Congress yielded to us; I call it love.

I rested well; meditated and stuff.
That’s what I do at impositions marked “rough.”

And I do believe that history will recall
this era to be “rough” without an inked stall.

The moment is trying.
But I ain’t buying.

self-hug.gif

Life is intended to be lived;
to love to laugh, receive and give.

What are you giving today?
No hardness or bubblegum focus on the play.

Me? I’m giving encouragement, compliments, and love
starting with: MY SELF. I will begin with a HUG.

Did you hug yourself today?
Go on and list-it-out followed by a bullet point to PLAY.
It’s imperative that you don’t forget. Okay?

Inject and acquire more Meaning today.
Voice your opinion and comprehend the say.
Be mindful in the moment: A More Meaningful Monday.
Get up, get out, and get something; let OUTKAST play:

.

Today is a fine day because you’re alive and good moves are within your reach.
I’m Qui
and this day would have little meaning without you – pray for the dude whose under impeach.

Kobe, GiGi, and Friends

In Communication, Griot, News on January 26, 2020 at 3:38 pm

memorial-butterflies-flying

My reaction? Speechless when at first they had told me,
“Qui, have you heard? I think we just lost Kobe.”

Do what? And why would you say that?
I prayed it an unthoughtful prank. The type? Real bad.

I was succumb by the emotion: sad – when I did realize
the comment was not a joke and that Kobe has died.

Though not alone, there were 8 others who I pray REST IN PEACE —
among them Kobe’s 13-year old daughter, la bella GiGi.
So pretty.

Frozen in a glare are my eyes as I comprehended what I read.
With all imagination about me, I’ve difficulties settling in my head.

Any victim crossing over is a big thing to digest.
I didn’t know Kobe personally, but his energy was: best.

Talk about being fast out-of-the-gate and acing life’s success test!
He did that — from a young lad to a young 41-year old NBA vet.

Kobe was quick & fast. He lived in hyper speed.
He was generous with his prosperity; he sowed many seeds

quietly. He didn’t do it for show.
So, yeah my heart’s affected that we have to let him go.

Whoa unto Lady Vanessa. I am praying for her without cease.
That her heart can mend post losing daughter & best friend in such seismic release.

Do keep the entire family in your prayers.
God is with us when all and everything doesn’t look fair.

He is still with us even when we are in doubt.
Pray for the fam. Your good energy is needed now.

Me? Well besides talking to you, I’m really talking to myself.
My emotions are on my sleeve; I don’t endeavor to be stealth.

I don’t know what you had planned for today,
but several big energies have gone away.

Take a moment to be grateful that the energy released was not yours.
I’m Qui
and I’m going to miss Kobe, GiGi & Friends. Today “the other side” netted a score.

The BACKEND

Click here to read about the “Venus of Beautiful Butt.”

I think that it’s high time we talk about the ‘hind-kind’ again.
As in your backside, badonkadunk, your derriere, o’ friend.

Let’s talk about your keister, your tuchus, your butt.
Let’s talk past the quarterbacks last count & hut-hut…

Word is, at 50 most folks should consider getting a colonoscopy done.
I am no such age yet nor do I imagine the procedure is much fun

but it’s a teller of what’s going on back there; a way to measure the sum
of -ish you ate yesterday that has or has not exited your bum.

Anywho, between me and you, I went to see a GI specialist the other day.
I marched my healthy arse in, knowing exactly where it’s been – to hear the doc’s say.

Who want’s to wait until 50 to get a peek
inside of the mounds that we call our seat?

Not me.
I insisted the doc take a peek

and he did oblige me with care.
He lit up his wand and went in my bum to see what’s up in there.

He looked twice
and asked if I’d like him to look thrice?

alien-butt-shaker

Not if twice is enough.
He was very gentle and not rough.

I really and truly appreciate that.
Upon retreating he concluded ‘I had a healthy ass.’

I’m paraphrasing of course, and the procedure was not a full body
scope of 6-ft bendable rope; it was not a complete C-scopy.

It was a short scope with a light
that went in for 2-3ft of insight.

There was nothing there.
My anus is secure beyond my mound-pair.

Sir Mix-Alot appreciates a firm-round and I’m happy to report,
that he hasn’t seen mine and I’m a healthy score.

What about you? Have you given any attention to your backdoor?
Beyond your lover checking it out; beyond the ball, the beads, and the oar?

Well, I’m not sure what you’re into.
Feel free to use whatever you want to

I’m good with that, I’m knocking at the human core.
I’m making sure to not be demure about the backdoor.

Are you bi-anal? It’s the perfect question to close with. 😛
I’m Qui
it’s the weekend baby and I’m a curious lady, how is your backend?

I’m no Insider to THE OUTSIDER but

In Book, Communication, Movies, Science, Video on January 22, 2020 at 8:13 am

Heck yeah! I like it.
Stephen King serves excitement.

I haven’t read the book, tho I think I will
for the first 3 episodes of THE OUTSIDER has dimensional appeal.

Jason Bateman is the Executive Producer
who took Stephen’s book and became a juicer.

Now I don’t know where the series script is going,
but I am pretty sure that the writers hand isn’t showing.

I watched carefully and intently across three episodes.
What I found was circumstance and supernatural whoa.

THE OUTSIDER is nothing like Sam and Dean’s SUPERNATURAL adventure.
It’s a fresh spin on family & friends with an untimely indenture.

Not to mention an alleged child killer — who isn’t the killer at all.
He attempted to hurl his innocence, and met a fatal fall.

Yes-yes y’all. Folks are vanishing like flies in this macabre.
Coach Terry’s world is on a cliff hurl; a spirit impersonates him on camera.

Yep. No human  being can be in two places at one time.
Though this is THE OUTSIDER’s modus operandi vine.

Stephen King! Stephen King! Where hast thou mind been?
Perhaps at home alone, justifying not hanging with friends.

I’m sure that Stephen King is a fairly like-able dude
but I’m also thinking he’s alone when he sits and scripts such juice.

I, too, am a writer and with full reflective intent
who bridges-not scripts of friends’ lives being spent.

I’m not a horror kid, but I am indeed well read,
and there’s something to be said about a writers head:

It has no limits.
Creativity is solid; not a gimmick.

As a writer I am an insider whose keen on bearing out scripted theories.
THE OUTSIDER is a Stephen King exciter and I very much like the series.

Thus far…
Jason Bateman is a dimensional star.

3 episodes-in and I am truly less wiser.
Stephen owns the view and wears the creative visor.

DO tune in quick – to avoid being the outsider.

Next episode airs on Sunday @ 7pm; HBO does not miss,
I’m Qui
A serial writer and evolving exciter. Are you watching this?

FRIDAY NIGHT: Grown Folks Hour

Good evening and welcome home, already.
I get lonely without you; I’m so solo-steady.

Here’s a drink to curb your edge; tonight, call me Becky.
Let’s play a game of “Percale Chess;” tonight you can ‘check me.’

Come on and affect me. By all means be effective.
I’m Queen, you’re King.  Let’s intertwine our collective.

Connecting dots of intentional deeds,
drawing lines and reaping seeds.
Your majestic vision supersedes the weeds.
Thrive in the moment of you and me.

Who, me? You know my spin.
I’m categorized in the “Writers” bin.

Shakespeare, Langston, Paul Dunbar, and Dr. Seuss
nourished my poetic roots; thus, I bear a similar fruit.

watermelon-tasting-kitty.gifThough, mine is much juicier and sweeter.
A connection with me, means that you’re a reader

because I’m all about the water the wood.

How much wood could a wood-chuck chuck if a wood-chuck could chuck wood?
My name ain’t Chuck but I chuck much. I’m a southern girl.  It’s understood.

This Friday’s chuck, by all accounts is 100% Grade A.

I’m so very glad that you’re home.

Wide Open Wednesday

Thoughts-last-nights-debate.png
I had to think on it a while – pardon my expressive delay.

I enjoyed the CNN broadcast last night
and I think Sen. Warren did alright.

There were no hot topics that were cooled to the core,
and Sen. Warren did a great job at being honest and not sore.

Question_prompt
How many times has someone said something hurtful to you with no witnesses nearby;
tho when the tale was retold, that person chose to lie and deny?

Good people say foul stuff all of the time,
and a good handshake is not an appropriate response in-kind.

At the end of the debate Sen. Warren approached Sen. Sanders (they’re friends but not the best),
so when he extended his hand to shake her’s she clasped her fingers and drew them into  her chest.

Sen. Warren began to speak; though no audio was shared with us.
Tom Steyer approached the two in talks and his face looked like “hush.”

You know?
Tom’s smile turned into an “Uh-oh.”

Who knows what Sen. Sanders and Warren were saying?
Men devaluing women isn’t a joke and Warren isn’t playing.

Why on Earth would she handshake with a friend to ‘his not being honest?
Instead she approached him civilly to broach the topic; friends be up-on-it.

Real friends lay it out on the line, on the floor and on the table.
Bernies ‘overlay for the underplay‘ was an unappreciated fable

that Elizabeth Warren wasn’t feeling. Folks need to learn:
A woman can be sharp and graceful, but if you cross her, there’ll be a burn.

Even during ‘said burn,’ Sen. Warren was lady-like; she did it right and to that, I salute.
Mika Brzezinski missed the mark on MORNING JOE;  Sen. Warren displayed her value.

She spoke according to her own truths.
No shade to Sen. Sanders, tho, I bid him adieu.

Other than that, the debate was a smooth ride,

NEWS PERUSE

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on January 9, 2020 at 7:32 am

Good-News Lady w Garter Belt

Good morning good people. How are you today?
The news has a few views that I’d like to play.

Let’s take a walk across ye ol’ pond today
and witness Harry and Meghan carve out a new space.

What’s that you say? You have not heard?
Well, Diana’s baby boy has sent formal word

that he and his bride mean no disrespect
but intend to recoil as senior royals – for a life of more let.

Let means “to allow.” Also, the couple has an adorable son.
Prince Harry must be reminiscent; for his son he wishes more fun.

Therefore, he and our Meghan are planning to do a newer thing:
get dual residences on both sides of the pond. Quite fly and exciting!

I wish them well. Meghan Markel is born of our beloved country.
She and Prince Harry are indeed a new groove. New grooves can feel funky.

And that’s okay. Right? Change can bump and bruise.
I think the young royals are onto something. It’s time to stick-and-move.

What’s that you say? Where on Earth have I been?
In the checkout line reading tabloids, o’ friend. 😛

What about you?
I’ve also got a couple of PSA’s that I need to shoot.

One conveys auto safety and being compliant on the road.
I love that you keep your car shiny-clean but let’s conquer a higher goal:

clearer skies tomorrow.
Smoke plumes from a tailpipe equal sorrow.

Dont-smoke-out_car-emissions.gif

We can’t have soot-like emissions continually going up into the air.
QUI FILMS is supporting this PSA because we’re drivers of dimensional care.

Drivers of good and common sense – please endeavor to remain fresh.
Let us all be mindful of the road and the danger of bad breath.

Wait. Do what?
Yes. Bad breath made the PSA cut.

The second PSA that I am working on
is about the hazards of breath-too-strong.

Let me slow down and point-out the calcified fact
that heart disease thrives via the build-up of plaque.

bad-breath-horse.gifPlaque on your teeth need not cause you to hush.
Be friendly & chatty with others  after you brush. 🙂

It’s a good ambience and your friends will cease to frown
when you and your long conversation comes around.

I know that most of us have conversation on a variety of hues.
I wouldn’t be surprise if you dropped a line about this NEW PERUSE.
It’s okay if you do.

All publicity isn’t good publicity, but you are a good soul.
I would think if you talk about me, it’s as good as gold –
and that’s goal.

Am I right?
May goodness be yours by the day and by night.

Me? I’m up early reading and couldn’t refuse the write.
A NEWS PERUSE is a connective tool to world-view insight.

And while I’m taking it easy – by crossing the pond and talking film shop,
life is really good-to-go, good kinfolk — but world news isn’t so hot.

We, the people are the news. What we do composes the worlds view,
I’m Qui
Always involved in a new days evolve, positive news, encouragement, and you.

PS — If you’re wondering why I didn’t mention IRAN?
I prefer to leave the fish in the frying pan.
You don’t need my views on that particular stance.
Let’s make LOVE the news; let’s start a new band.
Remember WE ARE THE WORLD? Let’s sing and hold hands.

Pardon me. Do you mind

Words add up. Do you mind…

…If I say “I love you” and “life isn’t easy but I can be”
should you and I decide to work in tandem as a team.

Do you mind? I hope not.
Because I’m crazy about you (lil’ snot).

It’s true.
What has this day in store for you?

Pardon me. Do you mind if I say
that I am glad that you stopped my way?

I’ve got two warm mugs filled with 6oz of jo.
pouring-coffee.gifOne for me and one for you. One sugar or fo?’

I just want to sit and sip with you for a while,
give you a few flowers and watch you smile.

Is that okay?
I’m always up for new things at the start of a new day.

It’s always new with you.
I can’t help but to show appreciation, boo.
Did I mention I love you?

I suppose I’m just having a happy and grateful moment.
Pardon me. Do you mind if I publish it and own it?

I hope not, because I’m doing it anyway.
I’m up posting and hoping you’ll chime in with your say.

I don’t mind, you know?
Go ahead, please take the flo.’

Worry not about what world leaders do.
Remember God? He’ll pull us through.

Pardon me, while I care not
to be anxious about squat.

coffee-toast.gifJoin me. Would you like a cup of jo?
Pardon me while I play the perfect host.

I’m into you, you know?
It’s a pleasure to focus and dote

on you and the capacity that we encompass.
Do you mind a little PDA; a hug/kiss?

We can keep the PDA private, if you like.
Save not the fact, that I love you to life.

When I put pen in hand I yield to ‘the write’
of whatever it is that needs injecting into life.

Actually, I’m digital and while my pen is tops,
this morning I’m posting to you via a laptop.

Still, I write whatever it is that needs to be said.
words-in-mind.gifGood morning sweetheart, keep a positive head.

Also, keep a prayer running in your heart.
Society has nothing on your spirit. Be smart.

The difference between living and barely making it —
is in your perception. Open up. No faking it.

Pardon me. Do you mind if I say “you deserve more?”
