Rip into LIFE. She is a GIFT.

There is so much that I want to do with my life, in this life
And if it feels good, I may do it twice.
It’s a rarity that I do anything thrice.
I want to greet and be acknowledged; acknowledgment is nice.

I want to live, laugh, love and heal.
I want to comprehend the constitution; confirm that it’s real.

I’d love to.
Is there anything on this Earth that you’d like to do?

Perhaps a new house, perhaps a nice new car?
Perhaps a remote trip, with no kids or lip – nor too far?

There is so much that I want to manifest, I’m not interested in mute.
I would love to talk across fenced yards to Mr. Wilson and you.

I miss picketed fences, chain links and the likes.
They are everywhere in Texas but near me, not nigh.

.
And that’s alright. Besides, I’m not at my pinnacle point,
where I reside on a ranch, like a Madeleine Stowe joint.

There’re so many items on my list “Before Bucket…”
So much I want to do that I can’t even say ‘fuck it.’

Can you relate?
If you can, then win out the day.

Nothing comes to stay forever,
not even the best Texas weather.

What do you want to do with life? Take a minute and write it down.
.
Or else life will be a joke, devaluing your thoughts and yield you a frown.

Please don’t lose sight of whatever it is that you want for your life.
Nourish your perception and intentions; let your vote be your fight.

Vote your intentions and let nothing deter you from doing so.
Vote early by mail or mask & glove up before going to the polls.

Things that I must do to free my soul;
Collective meditation will yield us goal.

I want to elevate; I want to soar.
I don’t want to think about racial division anymore.

I want to smile and play in the grass
and speak to every soul that walks pass.

Is that okay?
This is how I am winning the day.

I’d just like to express further, what I’d love to be true,
I’d love to live to be 120-years to help guide humanity through.

120-years_Ilchi-Lee
.
Have you ever heard of such?
Ilchi Lee wrote about it, much.

Got a minute? Read it.
Meditate towards a better life; heed it.

The day is so early as is our opportunity in life.
I’m Qui
Let’s live it to the hilt; once, twice and even thrice.

The time is ours and the future will come through.
What is it in this life that you’d like to do?

DO IT.

Books! Books! Books! Have you got any books?
Mary Trump’s book is on backorder. Yes – I took a look,

when I ordered my own.
She’s been observing the Don from youth to grown.
What familial reads hath she literally sewn?
Yes, I confess, I have back-ordered my own.


.

I know that I’m not sly — but I’ve received several books over the COVID19 quarantine,
including Eddie Glaude Jr’s BEGIN AGAIN and W.E. Du Bois’ DARKWATER scenes.

I’ve got my arms full, indeed. I do love to feed my mind.
Today is Friday another “We’re aliveday. Let’s record it a good find.

There won’t be any club dancing tonight, COVID run’s the scene.
There won’t be any house parties either; groups are not a thing.

tracy-morgan_no.gifThis is surely different from everything normal that we know.
The admin said “children should go back to school,” but parent’s are like “No.”

How is that a good idea in the era of COVID19?
Hospitals are full and bursting at the seams.

There is no way that anyone could convince me to risk my children’s lives
behind a dude who was never good in school; who on Pennsylvania Ave resides.

Nope.
No thanks; they’d forgo.

God help us. Are the reliant being lead by the blind?
I keep my head in a book; I do enjoy my mind.

Reading is fundamental and paints reality kind.
Especially when reality is wrapped in COVID one nine.

Do not be in a societal bind — fight back by reading a different talk.
Learn something positive & nourishing –  then let it effect your walk.

Gift your mind a massage and invoke within yourself renewed thought.

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,

Throwing Papayas at Tobias – BLACK LIGHTNING

.
Episode 11 took-out Reverend Pinky and Jade’s boyfriend, Khalil.
It had an emotional, roller coaster feel.

Episode 12 brought my girl Perenna (portrayed by Erika Alexander) back in.
Her metaphysics are strong like ethanol gin.

Hm. Let’s see… Where do I begin?

Thunder went into the trap and duly kicked the ass
of Black Bird & his crew – and then she took their cash.

For two reasons – if you’re inclined to ask:

1) for Black Bird putting his hands on his gal
2) to pay for Khalil’s funeral; because she’s a pal.

But stealing Black Bird’s money didn’t come without a price,
La Thunder chica almost lost her life.

Black Bird’s boys put it on her; they weren’t for that jive.
One of them mased her face and vulnerable became her life.

Though she healed up quickly and remains strong,
I’m digging her existence and hopes she goes long.

Dear Black Lightning:
Your new suit is exciting.

The series’ fresh content yields praise to the writers and to the producers.
Peep the above-the-line cast; magic is made by reel juicers.

At the conclusion of the episode we witnessed Khalil laid into the ground;
we also saw Tobias planning to live as Jade plans to take him down.

I wish I had a whole bag of rotten papayas,
I would throw them all at Black Lightning’s Tobias.

But when you really think about it, he is the sum of awesome character development.
I’m Qui
Digging Black Lightning TV; thus, it’s my pleasure to vent.

Way to nail a role Marvin “Krondon” Jones 3.
I enjoy your work on the BLACK LIGHTNING series.

Babies Don’t Read

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on October 15, 2018 at 5:00 am

Dangerous-Curve-Ahead-Sign.gifBabies don’t read but they certainly are teachable.
A fresh mind is moldable whereas, an old one is not reachable.

When simply asked ‘can you read,’
the U. S. prez said — (NOT A DAMN THING).

He isn’t well read.
No recollection was in his head.

He is not a baby and new life isn’t here before us to unfold.
Call a weak mind a horrible find; especially when the dog is old.

God bless America’s old soul, her new soul needs salvation.
Confessing a love for dictators and such is not a healthy relation.

And what about our nation? Are we to fend for ourselves?
Somebody wake the neighbors up! Our union isn’t feeling well.

No new hope is being shaped and no new tricks are being divvied.
Our international status is a wee bit ratchet— with every new day we look a little more silly.

The stock market is not an actual tell. Global money is not yours.
Your money comes from your local job and you spend it at a local store.

So when the stock market rises do you really score?
However, if she fails, your finances are impaled and then you get a little sore.

elephant-sit-on-car.gif

Crippling…

Right? Remember what lead us to the collapse in 2008?
Well there’s another elephant sitting on your plate
and with your finances and security — he’d much like to play.

Can’t you see the writing on the wall? Are you comprehending this Griot feed?
If only you could – I wish you would. Unless you’re a baby — and Babies Can’t Read.

And if you are a big baby, anytime is a good time to grow up.
It’s Monday beloved, give this day a hug and start inserting in it more love.

First love for yourself and then for others.
Be mindful to extend it to your sisters and brothers; your father and mother.

Respect is the human baseline.
Utilize respect and you’ll be fine.

Read inspirational writes daily and do pray often
that God keep your mind sharp and your heart softened.

Babies Can’t Read but you’re much sharper than that.
A well-balanced lifestyle keeps your mind from getting fat.

Good morning Monday, you caught me mid-topic,
I’m Qui
and illiteracy is real! Barbara Bush couldn’t stop it.

Educate your soul and go out & vote — because only Babies Don’t Read.
That’s not you nor me. History is best born out of unity and DEMOCRACY.

The change is still up to you and me.

LET’S TALK ABOUT IT

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on June 18, 2018 at 6:30 am

Ann-hathaway_on-the-phone.gif

Let’s talk about the weather, let’s talk about life.
Let’s talk politics – the culprit of recent strifes.

talk_about_it_June-18-2018
Let’s talk about the fam’; How’s your momma ‘nem?
Let’s talk about the state of our country and how we can effectively hem.

Where’s your bright spot, America? Aren’t we looking awfully dim?
Speaking of, let me divvy some specific love to the White House: Trump and ‘nem.

What up big Repub in the Oval Office room!
You have no stance and a slimming chance, yet the stock market still booms.

You’re not king ring-a-ling;  you’re chief of what is.
In the grand scheme, this is an American life-thing
and I question if your base-support is that big.

The global world isn’t loving us;
our allies are pushed-away from hugging us.

Rudy Giuliani is still bugging us
and the tweeting prez doesn’t know how to hush.

Let’s talk about it: Families being torn apart at the border.
We’ve too many resources and not sharing; we’re hoarders.

No laws are in place that deems such vile crap.
This is an administration issue, say both Republicans and Democrats.

It’s not a good look for our country and history will duly show
‘the chump on the hill’ to be a calloused heel —
intent on delivering Democracy a low blow.

Let’s talk about it: Nepotism Laws have been slaughtered.
If not to build a platform for women, what’s up with the 1st daughter?

Isn’t she a senior advisor to the prez?
If anything, what on earth has she said?

She, nor her father is helping.
My role? I’m going to God and I’m telling.

It’s what I’m known for and what I do.😁
I go to God when I can’t get through to you.
It’s true.

Because I am a praying spirit, please know that I am wise.
You don’t have to say much – your truths spill from your eyes.

I am grateful to see it.
The unwise under a guise;
I wouldn’t want to be it.

So, let’s talk about it: Where We Are and What We Mean.
Is Congress for the collected WE or loyalist to a he?

Think about it and then speak. Speak up, speak up, speak up!
There’s too much silence on violence or we just don’t give a WHAT.

If we are a collective and we truly care
pipe-up your voice at the ballot and place it there.

Mid-term elections are at stake and on the way.
Get up and get out – you have something to say

and the world wants to hear it.
Obviously, I’m confrontational; I don’t fear it.

Let compassionate hearts and minds prevail
Or I fear America will feel a backlash of hell.

Nothing is done without consequence.
Building consequence is how this admin is spent.

God help us, we’re a year and a half already in.
It’s increasingly difficult to understand and grin.

If our goal is to be selfish, not help others nor let them in…
We are rapidly gaining clarity to what the Bible calls a sin.

Republican Evangelicals:  the American youth are watching.
Their belief in your self-righteous religion is no longer clocking.

They don’t believe in you anymore. So you can stop.
They realize that you’re working for yourself and not representing God.

Their souls are wise.
They see the racism in your heart through your eyes.

When a person is hungry for help it’s hard to digest lies.
I’m Qui
Up to talk about it, because our biggest commonality is life.

Give it some thought and then let’s talk; be open-minded and spunky.
We’ve got to come together to change this administrations weather…
Let’s talk about our country.

About Mondays

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on April 9, 2018 at 4:46 am

alarm-clock-calendar-close-up-908298.jpgEvery morning can classify as a Monday, as in every morning is a new start.
It may read Thursday on the calendar, but it’s new opportunity at its heart.

Good morning Monday. I’m so glad that you’ve come back around.
Last night I slept quite sweetly; last night I slept quite sound.

All last week I was on Spring Break and nowhere really to be found.
I chose to hiatus in a familial space and camped out in DFW’s Ag-Town.

It was good to be on old stomping grounds. Texas is still the place that I call home.
It was good to visit every cousin, nephew, niece and kin that I can’t visit in the ‘Zone.

Spring Break was refreshing, reviving and real.
I couldn’t wait to come home and record the appeal.

I have a narrative series episode to conceptualize.
The producer is from Cow-Town and has his eye on the prize.

I’m game to help him literally birth a narrative view.
I’m into collaborating on new projects. It’s a Monday hue.

I saw a movie last week; t’was a science fiction gem,
it was Legendary Pictures, “Pacific Rim.”

It didn’t just hit the theaters, — I’m just getting around to taking it in.
It was pretty good, and well understood; I’ll have to go back and give the first one a spin.

This is the second Pacific Rim film. The first starred Idris Elba.
Part two starred his scripted son; a futurist who’s quite clever.

The film was adequately entertaining. I give it a big thumbs up –
and then Sunday rolled in with another win at the Mocha Girls Read book club.

I do enjoy this particular outing; it’s a sisterly critical analysis event.
This weeks review was of Claretta Street, by Kenya Barris’ sister, Colette.

The book club members are relentless in sharing their truths.
Each one is heavily honest, though none are named Ruth.

Monday

Opportunity.

For a writer, a discussion group is the true telling of the tale.
I’m new to this particular group, and so far they have not failed

to remind me to come with the facts and to close all story holes.
These ladies are shaping my audience understanding into tried gold.

On honing the complexities — I am sold and today is Monday.
Another opportunity to be fly and take the road of high; a fun day.

I’m girly and up early to be down with it,
I’m Qui
happy to reconnect, compose griot and spit it.

It’s not quite as early as you think.
With the sun not yet up, I’m doing the one-eyed wink.

My, I could use a tall, hot cup of jo to get things going.
I’ve got seeds in my bag that I need to be sowing.

School work. You know the drill!
Monday’s are the beginning of things getting real.

I spent the weekend pacing myself and yielding very little to play
because Sunday was the deadline date for the outline of my essay.

Please feel the vibes of my grin.
I look like Chester – sure, but I got it in.

And we’re back to Monday! God is good, we’re all alive.
Opportunity is gassed up – are you down to ride?

I am. The sun is on its way to join the day’s mix.
I’m in Arizona — it’s 49 minutes after 6.

Good Morning Monday. I’m so very glad to see you again.
Yesterday I joined a book discussion group and made new friends.

We reviewed the book QUEEN SUGAR by Natalie Baszile,
and talked about Charley and Ralph Angels lives of heel… on the heal.

The discussion had an authentic appeal comparable to reel.
We discussed the differences that live between the book and the series deal.

The differences were vast, still, I like them both.
We met at 3 at Changing Hands – by 5, we were ghost.

The Monday sun is rising now; there’s so much beauty in her shine.
I’m Qui
So happy to reconnect with thee. Any chance that you saw A WRINKLE IN TIME?

The Happiness Advantage

blue-flying-butterflies.gif

Catch it!

There is empirical evidence that happiness can lead to a more productive and successful life, according to Shawn Achor, author of “The Happiness Advantage: Seven Principles.”

Let me say it again, ‘Happiness leads to success.’

Therefore, happiness is not only found at the end of success. Right?

Correct!

Then, be happy – now! Why wait? This information should further encourage you to enjoy your life’s journey. Happiness is that thing that makes the journey not seem so long or arduous. Please forfeit leaning towards the notion that happiness will be found “at the end of” success. For us to assume this – is to rob ourselves of all of the happiness going on around us, right now.

Do you see it? Catch it and ride it all the way to success!

decorative-line-divider1

It’s obvious that I’m into this semesters Psychology course; brain insight has got me shook.
I’m eating it up, (it’s almost tangibly in my gut) – so much so, I had to share Shawn’s book.

I hope that you don’t find it cheesy that I’m sharing with you my curriculum course reading.
I’m Qui
and The Happiness Advantage is a read that leads to better mental and physical well-being.

The following list of ideas is not a part of Shawn’s book
but the info is so spot-on, I thought you’d better take a look:

Waking up to Timothy Snyder, again

An ALARM Clock

I initially posted this piece in March of 2017, though as the days progress I feel compelled to post it again for further review.

Allow me to reintroduce the topic of tyrannical juice via TIMOTHY SNYDER to you.
A little insight on how dictators come through:

divider blk_south

waking-up-is-keyI’ve been with my guy for more than two decades, (since high school), so waking up to Timothy Snyder was something new to me. Good thing my guy isn’t the jealous type, because Timothy has a book that has caught my attention and demands ‘curl-up-in-the-bed’ time, so I’ve been ‘curled-up.’

How did I meet Timothy? Bill Maher introduced me to him last Friday night (I’m quick! 🤗) – he was a panel guest. Did you see the show? It was enlightening and heavy all at the same time. And by “heavy” I mean in yielding brain lobe capacity. You know THAT works for me. Oui! Meet Timothy:

timothy-snyder-tyranny

I met Timothy on REAL TIME with Bill Maher on Friday
He was discussing historical tyranny; education always equals a high day.

I kept the channel locked. Here is where I wanted to play,
it was pretty good stuff. Here’s a 5-min vid of Tim’s informative say:

Heyyyy! That’s whats up. Did you get that?
Aw, you know me. I’m a knowledge hungry she,
and yes — I definitely dug that.

It was so good, so proven and so deep…
I think I’ll transcribe the conversation for “readers on ‘the creep.'”

But that will take a little bit of time.
Peep YouTube – now, before they kill the line.

Me? On this Tuesday morning, I’m feeling fine.
I’ve got a few hours pending before tackling my grind.

I’m hitting you up, because you’ve been on my mind.
Good morning baby. I’m on my lobe-lift grind.

The day is early and knowledge is a good serve anytime!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’m content with spooning this book of mine.

I’m imploring you to expand your mind and to read a book today
Protect yourself, health and wealth from the tyrannical methods of yesterday!
DO Be wary of it creeping up again; Resist “the tyranny sway.”
