Look Beyond The Moment

In Communication, Self Improvement on February 28, 2020 at 4:28 am

binoculars
There’s no reason to not take pride in “living in the moment.
And there’s nothing worst than not seeing a thing because you’re all-up-on-it.

Are you? Living in the moment and blinded by the view?
If ever there was time see clearly – drink not the surface brew.

It doesn’t smell right and it’s not good for you.
Dare I say that you are wise if you’re feeling confused.

Reality is infused with what you yearn to hear.
Society appears to be losing its glue, year by year.

When will it stop.
Look past your nose and wipe the snot.

Refocus your eyes and look straight ahead.
React not only to visuals, but what is said.

We don’t need a 24-hour news channel to divvy us insight
on why we can’t trust everyone or how to spot a lie.

We don’t need much outside interference at all.
I believe in us and we got this – let’s get out there and play ball

for the long run.
Change may not feel like fun,

but it is necessary,
if it’s a great future that we intend to carry.

playing-footsies_blk-wht.gifLet unity be the mate that we marry.
Let us realize we need each other to ultimately tarry.

Earth is aging a little, so let us be her youth.
In fact ditch the aged vision for an adolescents view.

No one is asking you to be a tree hugger,
but to recognize our global issues and become a lover

of humanity.
Please turn things around for our legacy families.

We can do it.
You and I; let’s do pursue it:

Look Beyond The Moment and our own nose.
Consider our future and lessen our foes.

Consider yielding more love – first dibs to ourselves.
Then love-on our neighbors; live less for the wealth.

Wealth should not be the ultimate goal.
Use your time on Earth to love and enrich your soul.

Dig your toes into the sand of your favorite beach,
be fruitful and multiply; each generation should teach

about the perils of the past and how we used to be.
Let’s finally live out the facade that is our good history.

We can make it true.
Put more love in the red, the white, and the blue.

Start with loving you, then lean over and give me some, please,
I’m Qui
taking a Look Beyond The Moment and it ‘sho looks sweet, to me.

Meet me out back by the lemon tree
and let’s make some delicious unity.

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS IV

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 24, 2020 at 6:30 am


.
Alright, Good People: I’m at it again, with something that you can feel
in the spirit of Black History, I’m thrown back to JORDAN PEELE.

Have you seen the new Amazon series THE HUNTERS?
It parallels todays hell; the script is a punter.

I am enjoying the series install.
It’s a throwback view of — us all.

This show takes a particular look into hate,
the law, the people; a legacy page.

A lot is up for debate on this piece.
Composed of real stories, yet hard to believe.

Give it up people: for content creators who keep it real.
Give it up people:  for the history of Jordan Peele.

He is showing you yourself – regardless of your race.
The Hunters series has potential; may it take its place.

HOME. I am an American. The American way yields an intellectual key.
Home. I am an American; I am about her values and BLACK HISTORY.

BAD BOYS For LIFESpeaking of making history, let’s talk about Martin and Will —
and the alchemy of good times they have captured in their reel.

BAD BOYS came back this year and made history;
approaching $200 million box office reception carries mystery.

Like, why is it that folks have turned out to see them in show?
Is it likely we missed the days of wholesome entertainment, so….

We bought tickets to sit in the theater and be consumed
with yesterdays situation and these beloved two.

What is it about yesterday that invokes us to congregate,
pay a door fee in hopes to rewind history and improve today?

Whatever it is… let’s all hold to it.
When it comes to supporting Box Office Numbers
please continue to DO IT.

The BAD BOYS franchise is raking it all in
because yesterday was good and karma is a friend.

Not to mention that one of the cast members claims to be an Alchemist.
Both relate in laughter, though making gold belongs to Will.

He remains reflecting that “go getters appeal.”
Martin Lawrence is still the neighbor who ‘we feel.’

Scripting realities is quite the reflection of yet another —
Mr. Writer/Director/Executive Producer, Donald Glover.

Donald is Childish Gambino (the musician) and he knows full well,
what type of patience it takes to produce: A-T-L.

It’s been off of the air for a spell but is slated to come back with plenty.
In 2018 FX renewed for Season 3 and 4 to be broadcast the year after 2020.

It’s not easy being independent. So many of us want to be.
So give it up to the brother that embodies it; give it up DG/CG.

Which brings to mind another no limit storyteller
Curtis “50Cent” Jackson gets better and better!

Have you seen the view of his latest characteristic plight?
It stars Nicholas Pinnock in a new series called FOR LIFE:

Like Power, FOR LIFE takes off quickly.
The storyline is relative and connects swiftly.

A Multi Media Player usually plays more than one role;
an influencer of views to be told and to be sold.

Any chance that you’re watching either of these shows?
Your support is appreciated and I hope the show moves your soul.

Black History month is short and perhaps that was the calendar goal.
I am grateful for any reservations to culture-uplift and boast.

I’m a Multi-Media player; I write, chronicle, direct and shoot,
I’m Qui
Just taking a moment with thee to shine a light on our Black AmericanRoots.

GAME CHANGER

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on February 20, 2020 at 9:06 am

fight-of-confusion.gif

In a time when it seems that everything is moving super fast and awfully slow,
when energies and agenda’s are moving to and fro

without being led by prayer and God, so
confusion reigns and mayhem is a go.

I want you to know that you are not alone.
You do not have to face this on your own.

Who sent you here? Who gave you a family?
We’re all connected by spirit; you are kin to me.

Perhaps you forgot?
Aren’t you and I children of God?

It’s not an easy thing to forget, but it does get loud
with sound waves from technology floating around —

still I can feel vibrations of unity.
It’s content and peaceful; it belongs to you and me.

The feeling is subtle and almost faint.
Revive the vibe and be a saint

for the sake of our tomorrow.
Don’t strengthen the energy of sorrow

by passing it onto others.
We are not enemies – we are lovers.

I love you. It’s good practice for you to love me back.
I’ll watch for you and you for me. We can’t beat that!

Let’s be a team of flippers and lay hate flat —

tweety-bird-TKO_knock-out.gif

TKO.

out on the floor, a repetitious chore
sweep it up and put it in a bag.

Then put said bag onto the curb.
It’s easy to do and LOVE is the word.

Love is the GAME CHANGER
and you are an “Energy Wrangler.”

What’s a wrangler, you ask?
A person skilled with a complicated task.

Deciphering energies; which one leads where.
We master this by reading and listening with care.

This life is not facilitated by the TITANIC – we all need not to go down.
This life is best conveyed through good deeds; sewing good seeds in the ground.

Foundational love. Start with yourself first.
You cannot be love-void and quench this thirst.

Game-Changer_LOVE

I LOVE YOU.

Love yourself. Love yourself. Love yourself, then love others like so.
If each of us will love ourselves first then for others we’ll be good to go.

So I’ve been loving-on myself – hard, as of late.
I’m on it 7-days a week, 24-hours a day.

I feel A-OK and I’m in good shape to love on you.
Good morning beloved, let’s love this day through.

Don’t tire yourself out; be a 24-hour hanger,
I’m Qui
and LOVE is the Key. It is our collective GAME CHANGER.

NEWS PURUSE – Chatting It Up

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on February 19, 2020 at 4:30 am

NEWS PERUSE_GossipNow that I’m watching the race a little closer – I turned the television back on
to see Mike Bloomberg on ‘The Bloom’ and his campaign growing strong.

I’m a forgiving lady, still I wanted to know more
about Mr.Bloomberg, his word, and his Mayoral score.

So I called up my cousins ex sister-in-law in Brooklyn, to ask her to divvy
me the goods on when Bloomberg governed over New York City.

Y’all, it wasn’t pretty and only  because I really do care
I promised her I’d Griot the info and drop it here, to share.

She said quite a bit and I wasn’t recording the call,
but thanks to ROLLING STONE Mag, this piece says it all:

Bloomberg-and-Black-Folk
https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/political-commentary/mike-bloomberg-audio-recordings-stop-frisk-trump-951302/

It was eye-opening among other things.
He, too, prefers to govern like a king:

The New Yorker remarked that when Bloomberg was Mayor she pushed through jeers;
the weight of not getting a raise from her city employed-gig for about 8-years.

Uh-uhn. I don’t think I’m ready to swallow. I am not interested in another play date.
I do not want to babysit another rich guy in the White House; I’m looking forward to the debates.

The ladies and I are hooking up this eve. We will be watching.
We’re keeping score cards on who and what’s clocking.

There are several campaigns that we are watching; we’re not interested in lies.
We know Bloomberg is a target-market genius – we’ll look past his eyes.

We’ll be checking out Elizabeth Warren, Bernie and Amy Klobachar, too.
We are black and have love for Biden. It’s the patriotic thing to do.

go-vote.gifWe absolutely love this country.
To congregate over anything but – is to be funky.

And this ain’t a time to be funky.
The DNC needs funding but all money ain’t good money, honey.

Not if it costs you: your peace.
I’m just chatting-it-up with you for a little community release.

Is that okay?
I think communing with you is a great way
to start my day.

What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear your say.
Especially after tonight’s debate.

Life is a ballgame – are we ready to play?
The world is in sitting in the bleachers to hear your convey.

Let us show up and create a good story to tell,

Voting Matters in NEVADA

yellow-brick-road_daisy-animated-gif-.gifNevada, Nevada we see your intent.
You guys hit early voting, like stellar tenants paying rent.

Thank you for choosing to civilly vent through diligence.
People are waking early to stand in line and change events.

Last night we heard a rumored mention
stating BLOOMBERG may be looking at CLINTON

and the world got a shade brighter.
It energized my solarplexus; I’m a writer.

Could Bloomberg jump to the front as an exciter?
Clinton is no shabby choice; she’s a fighter.

I say “today is a wiser day… go for it.”
The contest is rough but Bloom-Hill can score it!

The ladies and I were cocktail’ing when we heard the news.
Cell phones lit up because Bloomberg is a numbers dude

and we wanted to weigh-in with our views.
So, weigh-in we did. We like the risk hue.

Nevada, Nevada: this weekend is about you.
Thank you for your insistence in following through.

This could be the beginning – of turmoil ending.

Happy about love, I want to Cherish The Day
I’ve got flowers, Proseco and Ms. Sade.

What’cha say? Care you to do the same;
go home and lay-it-down strong to echoes of your name?

Don’t catch my drift? Still make it rain.
Arrive home with gifts in hand and let copulation reign.

Me? I’m definitely going to get it in.
Forgoing a day of love is something-like a sin.

I won’t be closed, but open. Do come in.
Hug me firmly family and friends.

I love you, ‘rooting for you. Today is our day.
Eat candy, dress fancy, go out, hang loose and pray.

Yes, beloved, never assume the good in your day
doesn’t need a preface of you kneeling to pray.

Call it insurance.
Dancing tonight? You’ll need endurance.

Prayer
will get you there.:P

Dance in and/or out of bed.
Keep a running prayer in your head.

This is my gift to you,
reminding you that talking to God is something to pursue.

Get close to your lover by kicking it with God,
He made your lover — He knows their heart, mind and bod.

Their confidence or the lack thereof is just a facade.
If you care to know more… go ‘head. Talk to God.

Me? I’m hitting you up to talk about love.
Me? I’m in it for the closeness; I’m in it for the hug.

I’d love to wrap my arms around ya.
It’s been Valentines Day every since I found ya.

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS II

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 12, 2020 at 8:19 am

TUNE IN TONIGHT @ 8/7c

.

Multi Media – when defined as an adjective (of art, education, etc.) refers to using more than one medium of expression or communication. “A multimedia art form”
As a noun the term is defined as the use of a variety of artistic or communicative media.

Which is the perfect description, (in some aspect) of every PLAYER that we highlight in this piece. What do yo know about:

The Pisces and chameleon JORDAN PEELE?
I first took notice of him during a show titled Key and Peele,
and then he busted the box offices with creative & reflective reel.

GET OUT and US are digital releases that I own.
Jordan Peele is a Multi Media Player and one who’s quite strong.

I’d like to get him on the phone and bring up Issa Rae;
talk about collaborating and then call Issa on three way.

ISSA RAE, Issa Rae. Girl what do you say?
You are no longer INSECURE in any way

and it’s a good look.
Ass is getting fat,” cause your content hooks.

I am paying attention, I am learning and I laugh.
I’ll see you at this weekend’s opening of:  THE PHOTOGRAPH.

Though tonight belongs to – la bella, AVA DUVERNAY 
as she broaches Day 2 of: CHERISH THE DAY.

It is Key that we continue to understand our BLACK HISTORY.
Ava takes on Black Love because it shouldn’t remain a mystery.
#Anthology

The view is kissing me. Let it kiss you back.
Today’s topic is historic on the legacy that is Black,

and not only that, but the production cast and crew is Full Gender Parody.
That means 50/50 on the sexes; an even-playing-field is always key.

I need you and you need me.
Give it up for Ava and opportunity.

The world is changing and we should all strive to be stronger and leaner.
The views are showing up more true, like those seen in GRASS IS GREENER.

Have you seen her? The documentary that claims —
there’s been a miscomprehension on the necessity of Mary Jane.

FAB5FREDDY is no newbie to Multi-Media; he’s long been a reel player.
So, when it came to documenting weed? Fab5 took the lead as ‘the slayer.’

Nothing wrong with it.
I’m sure he researched the foliage before he ‘hit it.’ 😛

Still, he did it! He brought the topic to the forefront.
The documentary is blunt and yields an intellectual punt:

You don’t have to be a smoker to be concerned
about the legacy of a whole race of people being burned.

So many African Americans are still currently serving jail time,
behind a blunt on a roach clip from cirque 1969…

Or something like that.
There’s a legacy rotation on the puff-puff pass

in my community.
Like Native Americans – weed invokes unity.

The law has decided to let it be.
America’s GREEN LAWS are making history.

Let’s keep it up; lay good intentions like brick layers
and do it in plain site – like these Multi Media Players.

The children are watching us, so is the rest of the world.
I’m glad to be GENDER PARODY; highlighting boys and girls.

I’ve taken my cue from Ava and the rest,
I’m Qui
reflecting BLACK HISTORY – it’s me at my best.

Are you watching? Are you clocking?

WORD OF THE DAY

We have got to come together more often than just for play.
We have got to get serious and COADUNATE.

Don’t you just love new words? I’m always pursuing.
Oh. Pardon me? COADUNATE is a word that you’ve been using?

Well go on – with your bad self while the rest of us catch up.
Since we’re coadunating today – I don’t reckon that we’ll fuss.

TWINS.gif

COADUNATE. There’s POWER in numbers. Let’s ACTIVATE.

That’s good news for me.
A good look for us — is unity.

Let’s coadunate, good-looking. Yes! I am talking to you.
Let’s talk about world peace and coadunate on the view.

Do summit with me and do tell me what you think.
Coadunation is our buoyancy, so that we do not sink.

Let us be a human link; let’s literally link arms.
Let’s send a vibe into the universe of love, patience and charm.

Yes, good-looking, you are indeed full of each and all.
So get out there and get to spreading those attributes without stall,

then watch folk gravitate towards you. Everyone likes to feel good.
If we coadunate more often the vibe will be standard in every hood.

Are you in? Are you down with the word (that some folks undoubtedly already use)?
I’m down. The word is new to my crown and represents my attempt to unite with you.

Did it work? — Let’s exercise the word.
I’m Qui
down to make it a verb.

It don’t stop.

Good morning o’ goodness that is life. I’m so glad to see ya.
Yesterday’s Sabbath yielded much joy, so I couldn’t wait to meet ya.

Repeat ya from last week and several more Monday’s prior.
I receive your manifest as another opportunity to score

something good.
Let’s begin with “I would

and conclude
with expressing something we strive to do.

“I would” like to win
like the wind in the editing bin.

Aw yeah. It’s professional with me today.
I’m a woman of gamification; I do love to play.

Though when I am in the editing bay,
all I can recall is: per’fect the linear lay.

Premiere Pro congeals the show.
All bells-and-whistles I endeavor to know.

Monday Morning Goodness, you always produce.
Let today be the same as I prepare to come through.

The news? I turned it loose. Satellite news cannot have all of my time.
To vote? I’m ‘gone do it, so what’s with the 24-hour news whine?

I don’t get it. What happened to the news
being a venue to share an array of views?

24-hour news only talks politics.
Please know ‘the folks gone vote –
but your chatter is making them sick.

I would love to keep watching but I cannot continue to relate
with you ‘talking in circles’ around a fate that doesn’t equate.

Let the goodness of the day be infectious and inspire us.
Let the blood of Jesus cover and protect us from that virus.

With that in mind, let us approach the day with clean hands
and the best laid plans
to have a good time, be productive and lend someone else a hand.

We can do it.
I’m pulling for you to smile all through it.

I’m already cheesing. Smiling is that thing that “I would.”
I love life and this Monday because both are all good.

I would like to know what it is that you would like to strive for in this day?
I’m Qui
Whatever it is, see it in your mind, chart a route to the find, then proceed to conquer & slay.

I love you, go get it, and happy

Monday
