Mix It Up, Baby

In Comedy, Communication, Movies, Networking, Self Improvement, Video on March 16, 2018 at 7:20 am


We’ve finished this week of thirds in victorious might.
My segue to getting here came to a head,  after GAME NIGHT.

That’s the name of the film that I saw last night at AMC theater.
Laughter reigned from beginning to end, as far as I can remember.

I actually tried not to laugh too boisterous or hardy
as not to miss any dialogue being transferred to a party.

I saw the late show but was safely home by the stroke of midnight.
A movie a day won’t keep the doctor away,’ but it will lend a cinematographer student insight.

game night_comradery.jpgI need all of the light on this journey, that I can bask in.
I laughed so much; Jason Bateman is touched
and Rachel McAdams comedic sense is a win.

Pappadeuxs, a little homework, and a movie – I got it all it in,
and now the excitement of another workweek finally comes to an end.

Are you ready kinfolk? Are you wearing your dancing shoes?
Life is a game that must be played,” and I don’t want to lose.

Life is full of battles – we should be careful to pick and choose,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, keep laughing and showing your teeth; be mindful to mix up your groove.

A Twinkle for A Wrinkle

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, Self Improvement on March 14, 2018 at 6:03 am

A WRINKLE IN TIME: Meg, (her little brother) Charles Wallace, and Ms. WhatsIt

Pardon me, I didn’t catch your response to that last question of mine.
I was inquiring if you have had a chance to see A WRINKLE IN TIME?

I did, indeed – filled with curiosity and excite.
If fact, I was in the theater last Friday on opening night.

I took it all in; I did not fall asleep.
The film had a consistent and strong moral release.

I read a lot
into that 2-hour slot.

The film’s message encouraged me to hold-on and keep the faith.
It reminded me that The IT is seeking to penetrate my space.

I won’t let it.
As for the film? I won’t forget it.

Of the morals woven into Disney’s tale, I did see this:
To white men in America,’ they sent a message. (8).gif

Calvin and Dr. Alex Murray

The message was in the loving foundation that shaped and pulled the show through;
it said you can still head up the family heart-thumbnail– they just, may not look like you.’

It also showed us that The IT has no respect of person.
The IT is hate and if it resides in one’s heart, can become a community burden.

The tale showed us that when evolving and growing, change may hurt a little.
This was shown every time Meg would quantum leap – the transit scenes in the middle.

Did you see it? Did you see A WRINKLE IN TIME?
The vibrancy of color was newly on shine.

Wasn’t the brilliance of Ms. WhatsIt’s hair color simply divine?
Did you dig Charles Wallace? He represented innocence, intertwined.

Did you dig Calvin’s role? He journeyed with Charles and Meg.
Did you get that he was looking to belong when The IT got into his head?

We saw his abusive dad, instead of love. He had a family devoid of care.
It was that bit of insight that co-signed why Calvin was there.

Again, the film is about feeling needed, loved and included.
Love and faith can conquer all and rebuild whatever The IT has uprooted.

I loved the film. It was deep, it required me to think and yielded me hope.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I thought A WRINKLE IN TIME was dope.

Good Morning Monday

In Book, Communication, Griot, Movies, TV Shows on March 12, 2018 at 6:49 am


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 sewing.

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?


Get Busy Y’all

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Politics on March 7, 2018 at 6:30 am

Good morning dear neighbor. What on earth are you doing?
You say ‘A storm is brewing and that she’s filed for suing?’

You mean Ms. Stormy Daniels? You say that she’s suing whom?
God bless those on ‘that wagon.’ The right wheel looks doomed.

Though I pray to God that it is not,
lest the agenda of the wheel is completely shot.

The Nor’Easter is headed east but Arizona is still hot,
The Tariffs are on the table and Gary Cohen’s left his job.

The Oscars ran last weekend, but I didn’t look.
I was about my academic studies; my head in a book.

Though, I have enjoyed the Oscar media highlights
of stars supporting DACA and supporting Women’s Rights.

It was nice but what does it really mean?
The Oscars was a collective stitch at our divided seam.

It’s a good look – The Oscars, but is America still looking?
Or are they working overtime trying to sift through what’s cooking?

Politics is front and center. Please report all defiance’s to the boss!
The White House has a few bulbs out; operating in a dim chaos!

Woops! Watch out for the Ming vase! You can’t afford the cost.
Xi Jiping is set to be president for life. Forever, China’s boss.

The media reported it, though it’s posed no constitutional attack.
Then Trump uttered the words, Maybe we should try that.’

car-goes-off-cliffNo. We shouldn’t and furthermore, that is not a joke.
He’s overstretched on governing and choking at the throat.

The State Department is understaffed – who’s balancing checks?
The intelligence community is at odds and your cabinet is a wreck.

Cybersecurity teams have no new coding strings to remember
Because very little is being done to protect the mid-terms in November.

Good morning sweetheart, do not hit the snooze.
Wake up! Wake up! You’ve got too much to lose.

We’re headed towards a cliff and the car is set to cruise.
Wake up! Wake up! We’ve got too much to lose.

Things are messed up – sure, still we can change this groove.
I’m Qui

A Brow Up

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on March 5, 2018 at 4:49 am

light-on-off.gifGood morning sweetheart and how do you do?
I spent the weekend resting up, practicing the art of the snooze.

I didn’t socialize publically; no hanging out and sipping a brew.
English Composition was administering a good whipping –
I’ve had oodles of homework to do.

I love it. I’m recalling yesterday’s retention and still learning the most.
I’d be wise to work on building my thesis or my course grade could be toast.

I prefer to maintain a high-grade point average, therefore, I duly understand
unless I refamiliarize myself with the process, I’ve not a leg on which to stand.

I laugh a lot in the face of being God-smacked by knowledge.
Though this is the roughest nervous laugh, by far. 🙂 Good Lord, I love college.

How about you? What in the world did you get into?
Did you sleep in an extra hour, day or two?
Did you do a pedicure, a manicure or wash & condition your hair?
Did you do the household’s laundry? Not for fair, but out of care?

flipping-pages-bookI did neither.
My course curriculum demanded I be a reader.

I read until my eyes bled – I’m a die-hard doer.
I confess, the effort was my best and still, I need a tutor.

I’ve got A Brow Up and I’m in search of an uncompromising wordsmith,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee! I’m up early trying to build a thesis
while sipping on a protein shake that tastes like a Reeses.


Optimism & Fun is Key

In Communication, dance, Griot, Self Improvement on March 2, 2018 at 4:28 am

This week’s accomplishments have been many! I’ve gotten so much stuff done.
Alas! Today is Friday and I’m up early for the fun!

My sleep was super deep and refreshing to my seams.
Sugar plums danced in my head – for sweet were my dreams.

Good morning, Friday. What have you got up for us today?
I’m alert and ready for work; I’ve got latter plans that yield to play.

Good morning, kinfolk. I have missed you indeed, yo!
Though I admit I’m not so sick about my kid moving to Colorado.

I thought I would be.
Charlie_Brown_dance.gifPerhaps, I don’t quite know me?

I woke up the day after she crossed the state lines
feeling years younger, actually better than fine.

My physique? I’m working towards sleek, though my spirit is on shine.
I feel like I’m entering an exciting phase on this life journey of mine.

Have you ever felt this way? I was much sadder when my kid first went off to college.
I suppose it’s different when we send them off temporarily for higher education knowledge.

What do you think? I think that it’s Friday and whatever this good energy is,
I’m gonna take it, embrace it and do something new to enhance the way I live.

Well, actually, I was thinking about taking a dancing class. ‘Not sure of what kind.
I prefer to expand in all ways, always – my course curriculum is expanding my mind.

I may as well join a dance class and shake my behind, gain new friends and drop more weight,
I’m Qui
Happy Friday to thee! Don’t forget to have a little fun; don’t forget to play.

Lets Go To DICK’S

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on February 28, 2018 at 7:32 am

to-catch-a-thief-car-driveLast night was highly strung so I slept in a little bit.
I woke up feeling refreshingly sporty; therefore, I’m going to DICK’S.

I may order a few other items online, perhaps I’ll Amazon Prime check.
On the other hand, they still support NRA TV… Shopping explorations! I’m looking for the next.

Good thing, for the sporty feeling me that I’m up for sewing money into society’s mix.
And with my choice of retail stores to begin with – I think I’ll goto DICK’S.

Surprised this morning to learn this that I’m a gun sporting girl?
Actually I’m a hunter of words, scripts, and supportive verbs; an advocate of peace in the world.

In light of February 14th at Marjorie Stoneman Douglass High,
Dicks is looking good; there’s plenty of room for other companies to try.

DICK’S SPORTING GOODS has decided to remove all assault rifles from their stock.
I’m not a big hunting fan, still, I am a sport who likes to shop.

There are dozens of other companies that have recoiled their NRA support.
Perhaps I will review that list and consider spending with them more.

It’s a beautiful day outside on this midweek hump,
but Florida buried their kids last week, so they are still in a slump.

Please send them vibes of strength, prayers to the father and yield support to their neighborhood.
Let’s show the children that we’re reliant and not down with gun violence — Let’s Go To DICK’S SPORTING GOODS.


It’s a NEW GAME.

download_cloud.pngThe last time I did something wild? I really don’t remember.
Mark my word on this day, I am moving to Denver.”

That’s what my daughter said to me last week. She’s all packed now and ready to go!
Me? I’ll be a kid in town all by myself. I’m excited about her to and fro!

I’m excited about my future travels, too. The Arizona’s dust can be a bit hazy.
I hear there are so many elevations in Colorado that the fun can border crazy.

She’s life blossoming, yet level-headed and poised to handle drama.
She’s a literary girl with very little cares. She got that from her moma.

Me? When was the last time that I did something wild?
It could go as far back as me having my last child.

I’m surely an out of the box kind of girl; limits are not really my thing,
still 6-years exist between my kids. I appreciated the time to breathe.

Therefore, I reckon I’ll be okay
with both my kids living in different states.

In fact, on the real, I think it’s carefree’ingly cool!
I’m still that rapper-girl from Trimble Tech High School.

Today — on the reel, I am a woman about my studies.
I’ve been hanging real tough with my collegiate buddies.

I’ve been putting in 15-30 hours a week on course research.
My head in a book near a window to outwardly look;
’tis my perferred creative perch.
My brain is massaged – my mind, alert.

I am really more of a nerd than even I ever knew.
The work is rigorous. I study and comprehend-slew.


Page sharing…

Everyday life is beautiful and new.
Good morning, good morning, good morning to YOU!

Come on in for the morning )))HUG(((.
I appreciate your reflection of love.

I just thought I’d rewind my weekend a day or two,
and share the beloved contents therein, with you.

No need to make our morning introductions a mono-score,
for I’d love to hear about the events of which YOU did adore.

Lay it on me – I’m listening. Bright eyed and bushy tailed,

march for our lives.png

Students from  Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School : Cameron Kasky, Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Alex Wind and Jaclyn Corin

Martin Luther King had a dream and it looked something like today,
‘black kids and white kids are walking hand-in-hand (with a stop on the hill  before) play.

Their character is not content; they can very well hate you or adore you.
Congress, you’d best to pay attention, because they’re really coming for you.

Martin Luther King had a dream and he never woke up.
Today our kids are on the bus – they’re being forced to grow up.

This year, in the month of Black History – unity is fantastically brimming from the heart.
Remember that Louis Farrahkan, historically put us on to The Million Man March,

Parkland_shooting_protest.jpgNow the children of all races and gender
are promising Washington, DC another March to remember.

March 24th in Washington, DC is the date and state
when a million kids will show up and flood the gates.

State officials rejected a weapons ban in Tallahassee, yesterday
in the face of knowing a packed bus full of kids were in route – on their way.

Whatchu say?
Congress wears a careless face.
Our kids are going to vote them out of that space.

Donations towards the children’s march have been rolling in.
At a half a million a drop – The Clooney’s and Oprah had to get in!

Then Steven Spielberg ponied up and threw in half a million more.
Congress has been a real heel; the children aren’t impressed anymore.

Martin Luther King had a dream. Surely it’s something you’ve heard about.
Interestingly enough it all came to a halt when a shooter took him out.

Last week – 17 more
were added to the score.

Let us not forget. It’s long overdue that the people collectively rise.
Remember on March 24th, we’re MARCHING FOR OUR LIVES.

Once again, Hump Day is here – and I’ve really and truly missed you.
I’m Qui
Always thinking about WE ❤️ and super appreciative that you still come through. 🙂

is by far, the biggest sport.


News Peruse

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, TV Shows, Video on February 19, 2018 at 7:36 am


presidents day.pngPlease, yo – say it ain’t so.
Is it time for a News Peruse?
I’m inclined to say, “No.”

I don’t miss running down headlines, though they inspire me to script.
Then I wake up this morning to another round of the hill’s fat lip.

Oh, it’s nothing deemed new-news, we’re still swelling off of last weeks hit,
when Mueller passed down 13 indictments on Russians for election meddlin.’

I don’t want to talk about it, really.  :/ I’m poised to wait for the investigations answers.
Nor do I want to talk about Melania’s man cheating or the scowls of Sarah Sanders.

Oh – why, yo?
And on top of that, I think she’s a Leo.

Have you seen Steven Colbert’s new animated show, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT?
It is actually genius work and a great way to comedy vent.

When was the last time that you laughed? —- Oh! Just now? You did it?
Was the reason for the laughter over something the President twitted?

I see. I see.
‘Woah is me,’

is what I think when I start receiving courtesy cues
that folks in my circle are ISO a News Peruse.

I don’t even want to talk about the Florida shooting…
It’s like watching a hunting humans club and they’re recruiting.

The NRA takes no blame…
ill formed Tweets etch in certain shame.

The leader is so limp, unintelligent and lame
that even our children refuse to say his name.

We lost 15 children to gun violence on Valentines Day.
Giving credence to them saying, ‘Nothing ever goes their way.’

They complain and we brush it off.
17 more lives are lost. How much more is the cost?

In my mirror is a daunting reflection of world views,
in order to keep it real – we must thumb through and News Peruse.

I hear your vibes and it’s true – I love you anyhow.
You always come through with the supportive bOoM-PoW!!

Thanks for that.
Now make it a point today – to LAUGH.

You got this! I got this! Having a GOOD TIME is what we do!

Serving you for coming through; Bon appetit la News Persuse.

Is there anything therein that you can use?
