PACE YOURSELF. Its a MOUNTAIN.

About the MAUNA KEA.

Yes, it looks like there are limited reasons to smile, but the ability still exists.
Our issue here is a mountain not a mole hill and is absent of bliss.

I do get it.
So let us come with it

and buckle in for this thing.
Pray to God for the clearance of long suffering.

Inevitability is what it is.
Pace yourself. We  got this.

Comparing this era to a rollercoaster, rollercoasters can be serious,
so to not secure the rider on a ride – is an idea of delirium.

The Covid19 era is a journey up a mountain and back down again.
I picked up that inferred analogy from a Cuomo kin.

I love being in the know.
I am loving Governor Cuomo.

God bless Chris Cuomo; his little bro. – 
for Chris has tested positive, yo.

Don’t lose your lunch, just send good vibes.
With protocol, he’ll take care to sustain his life.

How are you feeling today? Don’t panic. Please.
You’ll fair better if you remain calm; focus optimistically.
Breathe.

We’ll be okay, either way. I spoke with a FL resident today,
he was low on “positive vibes;” difficulties with the day.

But he was calling me on business; not a social “hey.”
Business fell by the wayside as I composed a “sunny say,”

that he just could not bring himself to relate to.
Our perception co-signs what the universe will do.

We are all on a hike.
Cases in the U.S. are on a spike.

Take a deep breath, we will be okay.
Calmer heads are ideal to outlive this day.

Stop hoarding all of the damn toilet tissue, too. 😛
You control your fate. Tomorrow will see you.

Life is about what you believe to be true.
Calm down, collect yourself; ask God to see you through.

childish-no.gifIf you don’t have to leave  the house today – please don’t.
If friends insist you invite them over – tell them you won’t. 😉

…….

Uh-un. It ain’t happening.
Practice SOCIAL DISTANCE & MASKING.

You got that?
I’m really looking for a moon suit hat.

Good sense will have to bridge the gap for now.
So, me and my kin are staying in the house.

There’s television, homework, app games, and the like;
there’s deep conversations to be had with loved ones in your life.

Do it. Why not?
Work out those relationship knots.

relationship-workout

Work it out.

I’m doing it.
Is relationship work a bitter meal? Start chewing it.

Once the danger of socializing is lifted,
I think better relationships are what we’ll be gifted.

That’s going to be great! So, keep that in mind
and give that distant relationship a little talk time.

The apex of NY’s Covid19 cases may be seen 7-12 days.
Stay in the house; though if you’re out, cover your mouth
and cease-not to pray. We will get past this day.

So smile already. This is a mountain climb, not a walk in the park.
I’m Qui
In all terrain shoes, with a water pack, snacks, and a flashlight for the dark.

Come on, let’s climb. Daylight does always show up.
Ain’t got nothing to do? Focus on you and yield yourself more love.

Then, go and put your shoes on and get your sustenance gear.
Like Gov. Cuomo, I’ll be back – let’s continue to meet here.

WE GOT THIS.

Note To Self – Work on Self.

i-love-you-sticky-note.gifGood morning kinfolk, are you up just yet?
I am hopeful that beauty will evolve out of this mess.

This is just a human test. A doozy of a test, I will say.
And we are not without an EMO; we can always pray.

New York is in a grip. I am watching them closely during Covid19.
The tally is still rising and Science is fighting the scene.

I have loved ones in NY and I am praying incessantly.
They are on house-lock because it is necessary.

I have family in various places and I am concerned about them all.
I text and make video’s because I’ve not ever been much for a call.

Could you use a hug? I could greatly benefit from hugging you.
I’m naturally a homebody and I miss watching your view.

kids-hug

I’m a writer, an observer; I dig your to and fro.
In the wake of coronavirus folk ain’t got nowhere to go.

I’m glad that we’re being mindful. For sure.
Stay in, stay clean and pray for a cure.

Note to self: Work on self.  Let this be our word today.
I need you to remain optimistic and healthy so we can resume our play

on another day. We can do it; remain young.
Let’s try a new hobby for sustenance and fun.

How about sewing? How about science?
We need PPE for the medical community‘s compliance.

I can sew by hand and by sewing machine.
I’m over here trying to sort out things.

child-of-GodI am woman of science; I’ve been up researching today.
I am a child of God, I research while I pray. 🙂

Note to self: Love on your neighbors. Yield social support.
I’m Qui
Glad to reconvene with thee, unity is a viable force.

Where am I needed? Where do I go?
I’ll start with talking to God from my bedroom, yo.

Note to self that I’m passing on to you:
GOD is the fastest route to pull us through.

We need ACTION.

 

Hello Dolly

In Communication, dance, education, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement on March 27, 2020 at 5:45 am
Charlie-Brown_Linus-dance.gif

Let’s jam on one accord. The W.H.O.

If you’re watching the news, I beg of thee to turn it off.
There’s illness in the message; you’ll mess around and get a cough.

Psychosomatics, baby. If you receive it in your mind then it will manifest in your body.
Turn off the news and refocus your views on you and the fam. Hello, Dolly.

Lodi-dodi. Look at you.
It’s been a coons age since you focused on the familial view.

Are you single with no children? Do you live by yourself?
Consider it a blessing; no co-piloting on your health.

Are you all boo’ed up? Do you have kids?
That’s even better – you’ve got pending biz!

No kicking back for you. Are you still wiping the house down?
We can beat this virus. Let’s wear the disinfectant crown.

You can make your own bleach surface wipes, even produce your own lemon scent hand sanitzier.
We are daughters of CJ Walker and son’s of Ben Franklin; invention and evolution remain exciters.

Be encouraged by the world demand and by this writerI am telling you child,
If you have sewing talent your barter-capacity is about to go wild.

I compare the feel of today to about 1000 years ago.
A bit archaic, folks don’t want to say it – but we’re in the dark ages, yo.

Still, we don’t have to get lost in it.
Our species is in trouble; let’s buckle down and defend it.

DON’T GIVE UP, soldier! I need you to hold the line.
Keep the fam inside of the house and all will be fine.

We are not feline cats, our life availability is not 9,
I’m Qui
Hello Dolly, today is a great day to call on Jesus to bind.

Wash your hands, wear gloves and masks if you must go out.
Survival of the fittest is what our species is about.

WHO are YOU?
Ever heard of W.H.O.?

Lodi Dodi

 

Leadership

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on March 24, 2020 at 9:26 am

leadership

What does leadership have to do with entertainment? The name of this site is Qui Entertainment Magazine, so then why are we always creating content that plays off of, parallels,  and reflects world views? Because multimedia producers are leaders. My line of work is global and requires me to create relative content responsibly. Research and think tanks are my jam.

Leadership is needed on every level. We need it in sports, we need it in combat, we need it in the E.R., we need it in church or else that one sister will sing all of the praise & worship songs during her testimony. Leaders set boundaries that support purpose. Stating that each testimonial is yielded to 3-minutes will keep most folk from going into the second verse on that hymn that describes their sentiment perfectly and will leave enough time in the service for others to express themselves as well. Leadership is needed, or we’d all be singing a different tune; not acknowledging or even hearing the messages of others that may contain life saving wisdom.
  Can I get an Amen?

Leaders are visible, like Governor Cuomo in New York.
Divvying life saving information is a patriot’s sport.

There are so many other leaders, I am sure, who are stepping up to the plate
to prove that they have the capacity to think, discern and contemplate.

It’s called governing and leaders are stepping up.
That’s great because virus cases are revving up.

We got this. Schumer is on the House floor right now talking sums
that equate to employers paying employees to stay home for 4 months.

We can do this. We can hit this head on and come out stronger.
We should act now – not in 12-more days; no need to be a prolonger.

Let’s first lead at home. Lead the family to wash their hands.
Then stay inside of your homes and admire your manicured land.

If your land is un-manicured, you don’t have to worry about being bored.weed-pulling
During your time at home, you and the fam can do team building with chores.

Make necessary work fun again.
Post weed-pulling pics on social media for friends.

Why not?
The weather is fair and not too hot.

Okay, maybe weed-pulling isn’t “a thing,”
especially if you’re in more of a city scene.

Leaders in your hood
are best equipped to tell you what’s good.

As for me and my household, we are full of hope.
Are we going to the mall and eating out as usual? Nope.

We have calibrated our to and fro
follow-the-leader_ducksto give the world time to figure things out, yo.

We are doing our best to be educated heed’ers.
We are doing our best to be in-home leaders.

Leadership should begin at home.
Line the fam up and get in a zone.

Together we can fight this.
Leadership is necessary but doesn’t feel like bliss.

That’s okay. Via united leadership we will all come out strong,
I’m Qui
Good morning to the leader in thee; prepare your fam to survive long.

Dont Touch Our ACA Protection

.
What is going on American people?
You’re in a poo-house with a real short steeple.

Get out of the shitter!
Fight for the ACA. Don’t be a quitter.

The current administration is in court trying to take it away,
like we are all quarantining because today is a healthier day.

2-sisters-appauledWhat the? Get the ____ out of here with that BS heap.
Take from God’s kids and your own good health will cease!

Do you think that the universe doesn’t read ol’ QE?
Rest assured if you kill the ACA – your own creator, you’ll meet.

I may not get sick and fatally succumb to COVID19 —
but the world would be ridded of our beloved senior class scene.

The members of our current administration are older in age.
Back in the day we considered seniors to represent a wiser life phase.

This admin cabinet proves  – that such is not the case.
Why is the admin trying to repeal the ACA?

Too many folk are sick today.
Too many cannot afford their insurance rates.

Perhaps they can lean back on the ACA?
So why is the admin in court today?

They are working towards allowing you to sneeze, cough, and whittle
in your home with fam around or alone — but no ride to the hospital.

This has got to stop.
The American head-count is on a steep drop.

Have you lost someone to the virus? Are you, yourself not well?
The folk trying to take away your healthcare have personal invites to hell.

Their time on Earth is on a “slowdown” spell. It’s sad for me to fathom and to say.
I’m Qui
And God don’t like ugly. Hands off the ACA.

Dear Administration: Karma is real.
When you get sick, you, too will want to heal.

Be a LIFE SPORT
and abandon court.

Lets Get Clean and Blow Off Some Steam

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on March 20, 2020 at 8:09 am

French-maid.jpgGood morning beloved. How are you today?
I’ve been up since 3 on my sanitizing prey.

We collectively don’t know as much as we’d like to gleam
about that dominating virus: COVID 19.

As a domestic science researching hustler,
I’m sharing with you the W.H.O.’s list of Myth Busters.

Still, what we do know is that the configuration of this thing
seems to recoil and retreat from heat.

So…
Let’s get to steaming, yo! 🙂

Unfortunately, steam is not the answer and neither is direct heat.
Ok. Let’s research this more while sipping hot tea.

Of course hot beverages are no cure or solution,
but it might deliver COVID 19 some type of contusion.

Just do what you can to slow this mother down.
Let’s become clean freaks and blow some steam around.

If it is true that the virus has a tendency to live airborne…
Where’s the harm in steaming up the home this morn?

the-clean-home-crown_mug

Own it.

I’ve been up since 3am wiping my entire domicile down.
I don’t have the virus answer, but I do wear the CLEAN CROWN.

Ow!,” in my James Brown voice. “Get down!” And then get back up quickly.
Unless you’re steam cleaning the floors to keep folks from getting sickly.

In that case — that is what’s up!
We don’t have to be scientist to do as much.

So, good morning beloved. It’s time for you to get up
and steam up the home with more than fear-bluff.

Do take all measures to protect your fam
and please remain compassionate to your fellow man.

Do not sit around and succumb to jack!
Pray to God for wisdom to keep your health in tact.

Then wash your hands. Wash them again. I am re-washing my own.
I’m Qui
Glad to wake up with thee to steam things up and clean our homes.

It’s not the COVID19 cure, but  it certainly isn’t wrong.

Reliance on Science

NEEDED.

Good afternoon kinfolk. What’s good in the hood today?
I’ve been on a researching binge of what scientist have to say

about this pandemic that is sweeping the world by far.
It’s being compared to yesterday’s strains of SAR.

I woke at 8am this morning to an incredible read
that a family member sent to me; an educational seed.

It was from STATNews.com and therein it conveys
that Scientists are in ploy; good minds are at play.

Still, for the masses, they have nothing good to say.
They are working from behind the eight ball to restore the day.

Turns out that W.H.O. did not offer our country a CORONA Test and we didn’t really say NO.
We have always staffed the biggest and brightest minds in science – per history shows.

So when initially we were notified of a test prototype –
America just responded with its usual rigmarole ‘hype:

no-thanks_meme.gif

Feeling nostalgic about our capacity to lead.

But this administration has laid off CDC scientists; they’re in the unemployment line.
I am over here on my domestic research looking for a viral bind;

a natural substance that can render protection.
I’m also praying for a new W.H. resident after the election.

We need leadership. We need healthcare solutions. We need the V.A.
We need to adopt an INDIVIDUAL’s MISSION to help ourselves every day.

It’s okay if you want to look at New York as Governor Cuomo leads the way.
He doesn’t have a blueprint on COVID19, but his wisdom is at play.

Washing our hands is a good way to avoid spread, as well as not visiting your friends.
If we all take a minute to cut-it-out, lives won’t unnecessarily end.

This is something that we all can comprehend.
Go on and hit up Skype and Facetime again.

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and I drank myself silly.
I was in the company of a few friends; well kind of, but not really.

I’m about science and safety so —
I partied unbridled and solo on video. 😛

What did you do, yo? Please don’t tell me that you —
were locked in the house with a pursed mouth watching the news.

Were you? That’s what’s up. I applaud you for thinking “safety first.”
Me, too, man, but I couldn’t save the plan of not quenching the calendar-day thirst.

Enough of that. It’s HUMP DAY and I’m talking much,
because I miss your presence and the human touch.

I am glad that I have this blog page to write
and connect with you on life-saving insight.

So, if you are home and have a minute to “knowledge add,”
I implore you to go on over and read the article and comments on STAT.

Do it and be wise.
Do it to save lives.

Let’s do what we can to stop this virus, by comedy-hook or lab crook,
I’m Qui

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Good Morning World. Are you home today?
Is COVID19 putting a dent in your slay?

I heard. I heard. I, too, am not going out for much.
I work from home a lot; utilizing the mono touch.

God bless the folks that flew into O’Hare airport;
packed in that facility like sardines of sort.

I’m so sorry you were there. I hope that you are well.
November is coming. Please bare out this spell.

Vote away the hell. Use your vote as your voice.
We can get better or die. Good life is a choice.

Good Morning World. Are you looking at us?Americas-shorter-short-bus
Is America sitting in the shorter short bus?

There’s a pandemic at play and we don’t want to acknowledge
that it has come to claim souls from nursing homes to college.

It has come to affect us all; every living man under the sun.
If COVID19 doesn’t claim the soul, it seeks to scar the lungs.

Beloved World: as a child of God, you will fall by none.
Talk to Him, again. Health favor. Get some.

It’s for you, too,
if prayer is a thing you can remember to do.

It’s morning and the stock market is flat, kid.
It’s a rich mans problem; el facade racket.

Pumping money into the markets, doesn’t make the virus go away.
Kinfolk we are on our own, if we are to survive this sway.

Life on pause.
I’m in here with y’all.

And I’m not sure how long this will last,
so I’ll make it my business to bring the laughs.

Today is a good time to engage in a movie streaming app
and sit around with your kids with a bowl of popcorn in your lap.

NETFLIX Monday
sounds like a necessary fun day.

Sounds like a day where we can reclaim familial glory
and maybe convey to the the kids a Biblical story.

There are so many stories that parallel this day that we are in.
The Bible is not a fictional book, but a chronicle of past kin.

Please respect the wisdom, therein.
Get with fam and renew your bond, again.

When life is sweet among many days of tart
it’s good to reflect on the contents of your heart.

It’s good to sit back, kick your feet up and reflect
on where you’ve been, who you’ve loved and what you’re on to do next.

Let Anthony Hamilton sweeten the road.
His talent is a God-Science; substantial like gold.

Ooo wee and whoa. He can warm any cold;
the backup singers call to my soul
Anthony-Hamilton-NPR-2016

and I love listening.
It puts me in a zone; it’s got me wishing…

Is that alright? Pardon my forward stance.
You’re just so easy to talk to; I call you friend, man.

You and I are tight. Right?
Let us jam some Anthony Hamilton tonight.

The view above is good cinematography, by far.
Let’s give a little love to the Producers at NPR.

The TINY DESK Concert was shot 4 years ago.
Amazing resonance and penetrance to the soul.

Good morning baby. Yes, you must stay in today,

Let’s start with breakfast in bed & Anthony on rotate.

You don’t have to go outside just to play.
Goodness is within. Happy Saturday.

Calibrating Our Perception

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on March 13, 2020 at 9:05 am

Sufferin-succotash_Sylvester-the-cat.gifDon’t be put off by the idea of change.
Change is key and spittle is lame.

We are not shaking hands or hugging right now, man.
We’re planning on living long and enjoying the land.
Amen?

Therefore, let’s wash our hands, workout and make some changes real quick,
like not eating out as much, because a food worker may be sick.

Would you even know it?
The wrapped entree doesn’t show it.

But you don’t really want to take that chance 
So no, we’re not eating out now – man.

Let’s  get back to  taking our lunch
for a couple more days – okay, a whole bunch.

Got plans to go out with friends tonight? Covid19 is more than just hype.
Based on reports here and abroad, it’s taking folks’ lives.

Please take care of yourself and don’t go out tonight.
Surround yourself with like-friends and kick it by Skype.

Do you have streaming services? It’s a great way to catch a show.

Coughing-with-babyhand

Don’t be fooled by the baby hand…

The movie theater is likely open for business, but do you really want to go?

Coughers like to go out and they may have the same film taste as you.
They may as well be a monsters behind your seat hacking up a “BOO!”

You know that you are going to run.
Running isn’t your idea of fun.

When was the last time that you had family time, yo?
When was the last time that you played dominoes or Skip Bo?

Dust off those video games and get engaged with the fam again.
Turn your room into a nightclub and Facetime with friends.

Calibrate your perception and let’s be proactive,

Staying in more often means we’re being cautiously active.

BE IN CONTROL

like yesterday…
