The C-word

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, Travel, Video, weightloss on September 20, 2017 at 8:30 am

letter-cGood morning sweetheart, my griot remains blunt
thus I want to talk to you about an abbreviation bunt.

When taking a hit in the stress department and harboring painful feelings
— it can yield a hardness to your organs that will need ONCOLOGY healing.

goofy-laughThe C-Word is short for cancer. That’s the intended abbreviated bunt.
With the kids reading I wouldn’t be Rated-R seeding and use The C-Word: CRUNCH,

I mean really. Don’t be silly. Aunt Qui is not that risky of a chancer.
Though it’s true we’re holding unnecessary stresses that turn into cancer.

The key to properly placing stress does not rest in your wrists;
when expressing ‘Why you’re down,’ you respond, ‘He or she – did this.’

That’s a sort of a bunt, but more of a miss –because it’s simply not true.
Though not knowing how to cope with stress means old feelings are harbored by You.

You grit your teeth and seethe. You do it day after day.
You live with the pain and hurtful stains of a strained yesterday.

It’s in your gut. It’s real on your plate.
Misplaced emotions can turn into hate.

Hate that you never voiced, but accepted as ‘all good.’
After all, the hate that you feel comes from your familial hood.

Well, harboring pain is never “all good.”
Stress = Cancer. Get it understood.

Avoid The C-Word! Act like ya’ heard. You must, at all costs!
When it comes to your emotions — you, alone are the boss!

My dad died from cancer at 69-years old just 4-months ago
and my 64-year old aunt via The C-Word, went right after him, yo.

The C-Word illness is real.
They befriended stress and then it killed.

Me? I was curious as to, how this is so?
Then I was told I had a blockage. My response, “NO!!!”

One day at Tao yoga, Master Chun did tell me
that a pain in my right side could lead to “The C.”

stress-2-cancer-route

Stress harboring  can yield to cancer in various organs

Who? What? ME!?
That is right,” said she.

I’m a happy-go-lucky spirit. How could it be?
It was yesterdays stresses — misplaced by me.

I did not know.
The harboring was internal and did not show.

I love my friends and family. I am sure I do it best!
So what’s with this misplaced, harboring of stress?

Well, it was stressful situations from long ago that I thought I’d forgotten about.
Sad emotions hunkered down into my organs and took up storage — to build a cancer route.

But it did not happen.
Tao Master Chun began tappin’

on the sore spot that she had pointed out on my right.
Then she educated me about stresses, cancer and life.

Today, several weeks later – I’m actually feeling alright.
My body is limber and loose and no “hardening of nothing” is in sight.

It took more than education and body tapping, but not much more.
I meditated and converted Stress to Strength via a Sedona Retreat score!

It helped me out a whole bunch!
The C-Word is real, but posed no life crunch!

Today I am not akin to holding stresses, my organs are softening – I’m making it through.
But because life is full of stress I thought it best to share my findings with you.

Because if your abdomen is hard, and you don’t have a six pack
and you’re a tad stressed out, perhaps even feeling fat
but not eating a lot – just stressed out to the max.
I’m gonna ask you to meditate and get ready to bat!

Bunt that away from you. Stress is not yours to keep.
I’m Qui
Good morning baby, I’m a word lover – like no other, touching on The C.

Skosh

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on September 18, 2017 at 4:30 am

about this much…

Less than a dollar worth of change, the last of the milk, a half of piece of toast…
If it’s less than whole, less than 100% — chalk it up as skosh.

Me? I’m skosh-ghost. A little bit of nothing rarely lives here.
I’m a Costco chick, bulk is a hit; yet I’m skosh on the beer.

It makes my stomach bloated, a skosh – it’s not pretty, but it’s true.
I want to spend quality time and more than a skosh with you.

Anywho it’s a beautiful Monday Morning
and I’m several moments post my yawning.

I’m thinking again… yeah I’m brawn’ing.
My morns are filled with academic honing.

To the point –  I’ve been meaning to tell you I’ve gone back to school.
I felt a new Bachelors Degree in arsenal would be pretty cool.

I’m a content writer; a PSA filmmaker.
A degree in Cinematography would add to my money maker. 🤗

Just a skosh.
Tho skill wise I plan to milk it the most.

A new degree and little ol’ me….
Surely you can recall — school does it for me!
Yes sir and Oui!!! Education is always key!

Sure — I already work in the field but it’s always good to know
The roles of as many as possible – as least a skosh.

Good Morning Monday! I don’t know much more than I’m loving you, right now.
I’m Qui
On a high. I’ve got the future in my eye… well a skosh of it, anyhow.

Word of The Day

In Book, Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement on September 15, 2017 at 4:45 am

word-counter-sign.jpg

Good morning “ami!” How in the world have you been?
Our 1st new word is “ami” and it is French meaning friend.

Dear Ami, I have missed you. Did you acquire much work and play
since we last spoke, 2-days ago on the hump of a mid-week day?

I’ve indulged in much reading, comprehending and analyzing views…
What I have not been doing – in the least, is watching local or satellite news.

I’ve nothing against Chuck Todd or Velshi & Rule
though to inhale that on a daily will make you the fool.

auto-cash-counter-gif.gifI’m not a good fool, so I’ve been reading and investing in self.
I’m a writer. Reading is fundamental and contributes to my colleague’s wealth.

Enough about me, let’s get back to the Word of The Day,
Are you being “perspicuous” when you speak your say?

Perspicuous means (of language) transparent and clear; easy to understand.
This is the charge of every orator, writer and book binder in the land.

Clear and concise is best. It is true.
Therefore “perspicuous” is word #2.

I’m parable-simple, still perspicuous in my writes of convey.
Don’t let the griot hold you up, yo’ – like a good sonnet, digest the say.

the-cat-and-the-hat-michael-meyers.gifI think you can. Dr. Seuss and the longevity of rap have paved the way
for the comprehension of griot; story telling via rhyme did pervade.

Before there were any Dr. Seuss books or one track of Hip Hop/Rap
griot masters were passing down news in rhyme – no shine, just the facts.

Surely you knew that before reading it here today,
Therefore your 3rd new word must be “pervade.”

Pervade means (especially of a smell) spread throughout and perceived in every part of.
The griot format indeed permeated; tho credit-wise it was underrated. Today let it be dug.

Last but not least, I’ve found another interesting word that I’d like to share with you,
I don’t know if you have room in your vocabulary for it, but the word is “moue” (moo).

moue-face-poutingMoue is not new and is seen most on a fixed-minded face;
Moue is the word for that pouting expression used to convey annoyance or distaste.

Word of Advice: Don’t moue.
It doesn’t look cute on you.

My “Word of The Day” title – seems to convey that there would be just 1,
I’m Qui
and I chose 1 + 3 because 4 new words will yield more vocabulary fun.

What on earth will you talk about tonight?
A new word or two will sew you up tight.

The Band is Back Together

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on September 13, 2017 at 4:41 am

All eyes are now on Dre…

Episode 10, Season 4 of POWER did deliver
and dulled the stereotype of “being a killer.”

You had Budweiser, Coors & Miller together again…
Their government names could never contain the amount of sin

that they have on agenda; the mayhiem they intend to create.
Tommy and Ghost took out Uriel but meant to kill Dre.

Raina’s death was avenged but that doesn’t make all “right.”
Tariq showed up at Ray-Ray’s undercover cop spot and took his life.

He fired two shots and Rays life stalled,
Then Angela came after the fact and found a bullet lodged in the wall.

Tariq used Tasha’s personal handgun
Forcing Tasha to hire Terry Silver and end their romp fun.

Everything is different now…

Now the whole family is under the gun – they live by it.
Me? It’s a heck of a heap, the layers are so deep I had to write it.

For next season, I’m already excited, though I chose to write about Episode 10 today
because not long ago I read an article that indicated “limited episodes” are at play.

Meaning the producers asked for 11 or 12 episodes
to tell a thorough tale but we’re duly told “No.”

Is that so? I surely hope not.
Is STARZ the good guy or the dirty cop?

Why not grant the producers per their request?
Is the series worth it? [Answers] DO IT and HECK YES‼️ 🙂

Forcing the series to combine multiple scripts because there’s no episodic room
makes me wonder what it means to be a successful series boon?

Anywho, I loved every minute in Season 4 of the series POWER.
I pray the premium network STARZ considers yielding a couple of additional hours.

Mmmm. Delicious drama it is.
The highs and lows of life via scripted biz.

No one sits lightly during any scene where we loose a kid.
Tasha’s emotions
are the tumultuous ocean of a broken and bruised Ms.

Kiss-Kiss but let us not dismiss how the season came to a close:
In Tommy’s mustang with Kanan in back and @shotgun, Ghost.

The Band is back together and dare I say,
they’re all focused on their next hit, “El fatality Dre.”

Hey-ey. For the series to have been expressed via 10 episodes,
KUDOS to every facet and all involved – a relative tale was always told.

The POWER series produces juices that look like gold,
I’m Qui
Flexing POWER with thee about the game being told and sold.

Monologue Hog

Focus

Good morning and good Lordy,
Irma came rolling in right after Harvey.

Uncle Corey insisted that he hunker down in Key West.
Most of the other fam went on the lam — but Unc was up for the test.

I haven’t heard of his status yet. I’m still praying for a rain thwart & stall.
To the McIntosh fam that is my connective clan: please send a text or call.

The weather in Arizona is on ‘beautiful ball.’
Sky – clear, sun – out and the birds are on ‘call.’

To those on the south coasts: I’m praying for y’all.
And after y’all hear from Uncle Corey send us a text or call.

I have a little sister in Houston that survived Harvey’s brut.
The pics she posted online revealed the saddest truth,

Her home is flooded and looks interior destroyed.
The love remains minus the clothes, furniture and toys.

She has two teen children – and within the two is a vast capacity of love.
I saw instagram vids of the shelter and her kids – they brought with them ‘the fun.’

Their high spirits glowed through the video bytes.
Their socio-economics were disrupted but their high spirits buffed it–
They’re up for the challenge of rebuilding their lives. 👍🏾

Good morning and good Lordy,
Irma came in hot and co-signed Harvey

to convey a message that Earth is unhappy.
Her land is carelessly sheared; her forests are assets – not a beard
and her waters are litter-nappy.


The gasoline and coal that we’ve burned…
Earth is speaking. Will you listen and learn?

Is it too much of an inconvenience to consider the fact
That we’re living a bit excessive? Must we eat all of the fat?

I had a car accident about  a month ago
and figured it may be time to upgrade the car, yo.

But then I started questioning, ‘Where am I driving to?
I work from home; less fro and more “to.” 🤗

Then I started adding up the good of a new car, for me:
I came up with shiny paint, minus my down payment bank and transit compliments of “Oui.”

Hmph. That isn’t enough for me. Incentive remains to bite the “new car challenge.”
And don’t go giving me that mumbo-jumbo about “better miles per gallon

conversation.
I am not driving across the nation.😆

In fact, as of late I’ve been walking a lot more,
enjoying nature and reaching my FitBIT score.

I’m also looking at the trees, the grass and the cars that pass by,
and I’m thinking “Lord bless the speedy travelers.” I’m guilty too – I shan’t lie.

Do I really NEED a new car?

Ever so consciously I awoke and arose today
while the rain whips the south coasts out of shape…

On another note

Beasley is Cold!

What about the NFL game last night?
Dak, Whitten, Williams and Elliot set it off right.

They brought an Irma’esque storm
That sounded a giants alarm.

I don’t think Dak wanted another repeat
of last years NY Giants double meet & defeat.

Last night the Cowboys did ‘the dang thang’
and shared with the Giants a lil bit of hurricane.

Watching the game was a great way to pass the time
when reality and chaos was hard on my mind.

After a full inhale of plays and a satisfying slow release
I realized Dem Boys came to play. Godspeed on being BEAST‼️

I’m happy today for life, love and those that hurricane survive,
I’m Qui
Loving the A-Z because amidst troubled skies she has the best sunrise.

Give the creator thanks if you were able to wake up and open your eyes.
Yes, YOU!

The prey starring in THE SINNER

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on September 8, 2017 at 4:36 am

scorpion and frog.png

Imagine if the frog (the prey) became the aggressor…

Woop! Woop! When it comes to repentance — I’m no beginner
though a whole lot of repentance is needed on that new show, THE SINNER.

Have you seen it? It’s wayward situations up-end the term ‘off the rails.’
After watching this new series, it’s building a case for the existence of hell.

Something has happened to the principle female played by Jessica Biel.
Her name is Cora in the script and her current residence is jail.

Webp.net-gifmaker (5).gif

One minute Cora is having a fine day at the beach with fam and the next minute she’s stabbing Franky in the jugular.

One day while with fam at the beach she just upped and killed a young doctor.
Her husband alone reacted in trying to stop her…
Those that know her say her usual character is so proper…
still amidst loud music on the beach Cora killed Franky, a young doctor.

The name of the series is THE SINNER, though it’s not about church.
Cora once said, this was about a child that she lost via an early birth…

But that may be a lie.
She spoke with conviction but never minded the why.

That’s the thing with Cora – whatever is wrong within her
Is embedded so deep, that it had to be fashioned by ‘a sinner.’

the-sinner-bill-pullman.jpg

Bill Pullman plays the detective whose interested in the WHY!

But I’m not so convinced the sinner is Cora – she’s not the beginning of the fault
Perhaps t’was a guardian or something deep from her past; situational mind-fraud.

Good Lord, the title name is The Sinner and the network hosting it is USA.
I ran through the first 5 episodes via OnDemand though its air day is on Wednesday.
I think Cora’s The PREY.

I wish I could tell you more, but I really cannot.
The series is  so unpredictable – it could’ve been aired on FOX.

Cora is so confused and so am I.
I’m no sinner and can’t stand a lie

yet so many lies are told in this script that it’s hard to decipher the truth when necessary,
I’m Qui
Watching this twisted ruse that’s Cora’s truth – built on the sins of the past that she carries.

It’s intriguing, human-faulty and scary.

Eh yo! How’s your ENERGETIC FLOW

It’s that time again, just before the Arizona sun rises
that I produce for you a topic or two in griot vises.

Let me frame the scenes and set them in place
before laying them out onto this digital space.

I could hammer out a myriad of thoughts and a myriad of views
from all that is good in life to the anxious whoa’s & dangerous lows of world news.

Where shall I start? I’d much prefer to talk about you.
What’s good with you today? Do tell, what you’re up to?

What’s on your agenda? How do you chart the day to go?
In all of your doing and career pursuing don’t forget your flow.

As it pertains to your energy. Please acknowledge when you need to pause or rest.
You can not perform at peak when forgoing eat and sleep; this will not yield you your best.

jumping-jacks.gifToday is a good day to hump onto an opportunity that’s been staring you in the eyes,
it’s easy it’s free and it will bode well for thee – get back to EXERCISE!

Eh, yo! How’s your ENERGETIC FLOW?
If you need a tune up – others may already know. 🙂

Did you rise early today? Did you meditate?
Did you stretch and talk to your body in relate?

I did...
and I thought about you, kid.

At present I am up sipping jo and preparing myself to go out.
The sun is on the rise, I’ve got sunny-anticipations in my eyes
I’ve got to explore what this feeling is about.

What about you? If you see me in transit don’t hesitate to lightly nudge me.
I want to bid you Namaste, hear about your day
and of course encourage you to hug me.

I’m blazing and on fire with happiness and hope today,
I’m Qui
ISO the energy: Qi  as well as peeping your flow today.
‘Looking good. Hey-ey.

Good morning, beautiful. Good morning, good morning, good morning!
Wipe the cold from your eyes and be strong in your stretch and yawning.

Stand erect and stretch, then bend at the waist and touch your loyal toes.
If you can’t exactly meet them, that’s okay – the effort, is the beneficial gold.

Hang there for a minute, relax your shoulders, arms and fingers.
Relax your head into the move – relax your neck, o’ shower singer.

Breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
After a total of 5-10 seconds, reverse your position of south

Happy to…

and stand up straight again, though slowly, vertebrae-by-vertebra.
Then bring your hands to your chest in a position of pray
And say “Namaste.”

Acknowledge the gratefulness for your body and spirit shortly after your feet hit the floor.
Do it because you deserve it – and especially if you’ve not ever done it before.

Don’t substitute acknowledging your physical body with the energy you generate when you pray.
Oh yes! I’m a praying girl – its big in my world; the religious start of my everyday.

Religious? What in context, does that mean?
That means I do it often at the start of my day – per every new scene.

Aw, you know what I mean. I pray and give thanks – for sure,
then I stretch my body towards the ceiling – then down to the floor.

For my body I am grateful. For me, (without request or beg), it works dutiful.
Therefore, after my stretch, I look in the mirror and say, “Good Morning, Beautiful.”

nomaste

What did you say to yourself this morning? Have you said anything at all?
Consider yourself and thank God for your health, your body is loyal with no stall.

A body stall is not at all what we want. Right?
So I thought I’d share my gratitude chant via this write:

“Thank you my toes, my knees, thighs, hip and my heart.
Thank you my eyes, mouth and brain – that’s so smart.

Thank you to all of my organs that do function in this awesome bod.”
This after: ‘I give thanks for life and all that is good.’ – My prayer to God

Good Morning Beautiful. Good morning – good morning; Im talking to you right now.
Yes you! Who chose to roll through with the supportive boom-pow!

Thank you. I appreciate you. Take your time, read a while; please do stay.
I’m Qui
Grateful for life & the sun and all that we have in common. To your spirit: Namaste.

Dance with me.

Make IT Stretch

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on August 30, 2017 at 4:47 am

dollar-menu

If you need your ground beef to go long, you opt to make nachos. Yes?
Well today’s piece is kind of like that, we’re going to focus on ‘the stretch.’

As it pertains to your dollar, your shopping for necessities and  your hobby
but most importantly I want to ask you, are you engaged in stretching your body?

The Dollar:

1. Track what you spend and plan a budget. Forgo fooling self and doing the ‘fudge it.’ Stick to the plan as tightly as you can. The effort will effictively benefit YOU, man.
2. Be aware of small amounts. Do you have any habits that merely cost small change? But you frequent the buy so much, that the annual add-up is insane? News Gazette reminds us: Five lunches a week eaten in a restaurant at $10 per lunch adds up to $2600 a year.
3. Other ways of Investing: Have an investment mindset. In everything you can make this relation, from investing in better products to investing in more education. Right? I mean there are more dollars to be made in this expensive life. If you have an investment mindset then UP your game, get a(nother) degree behind your name and duly stretch your future dollars.

The Hobby:

Everybody needs a relaxing past time. You don’t have to sit around and knit, no need to be a couch potato either, what about a hobby in getting fit? It’s for your own benefit, you’ll look great and feel stronger. Not to mention it will go well with your future, since folks are living longer. If your dollar is stretched properly there is no maybe about the fact that you’re gonna need them when you’re young and 80.

The Body:

Not long ago I told you that I was studying Tao; an inquisitive beginner
and enrolled myself in a series of classes held at a Tao Healing Center.

All is well and all is great.
We stretch a lot before meditate.

You learn to speak to your body and give it respect.
I’ve learned before I jump up and go, to yield to the stretch.

Our bodies deserves it. Our body is our joint!
If it stopped working on you today…. well you get my point.

Make IT Stretch, make it bend, touch your toes — or at least try.
Remind your body that you love it so much. Prove those words are not a lie.

You know me, I’m speaking to myself. You are not being preached to.
I’m guilty of Making IT Stretch today and I hope you will too.

Do what you can to take care of you before attempting to care for others,
I’m Qui
On this mid Morning 1-2-3, kind of feeling like your mother.

So, bring it in…

Dahn Jon

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Travel, Video on August 28, 2017 at 8:07 am

STS-dahn jon.jpgI decided to break from the grind of corporate contract winners
and dedicate some “me time” via the Tao Healing Center.

We met up in Sedona
Where big energy rests on ya.’

We did introspection reflections; we looked within ourselves.
The healing practice mainly costs you time for yourself.

Leave at home your mundane concerns and wealth – it’s not needed here.
Sedona has a reputation of internal peace and ‘wiping the mind clear.’

It totally and completely did it for me.
I resided in Sedona for days of 3.

Three is a small number  – though my internal organs received it as rigorous fun.
I practiced in converting STRESS TO STRENGTH with Tao Master Chun.

We acknowledged our Chakras and and focused on feelings to reconnect…
Then we hiked the Healing Gardens and visited an awesome vortex.

I stood still in the thick of it, grateful to God;  standing on sacred ground.
I calibrated my vision to see the energy particles,  mid air; all around.

There – is where good energy abounds. I was amazed.
Then we passed the sight of Levenson’s resting place.

Ilchi is the man that revived the dream
that Levenson left – when he conceded life’s scene.

Therein is the tale that provided the retreat
That I dedicated to myself over days of 3.

Converting Stress to Strength –
Is how my time was spent.

My Dahn Jon does it me.
We tapped and patted our energy free.

Penned up emotions have no magic potion of which I can tell.
But a trip to a Mago retreat could facilitate you into being well.

STS-Sadie-13-yearold-energetic-powerhous

Teen energy is HUGE!!! Go Sadie!

We meditated a lot. When was the last time that you did?
In our class of mature energy there was a lone majestic kid.

She was just 13. She opened her heart and took in the scene.
She arrived as a child and returned home – a wiser teen.

It was a beautiful thing.
I cried, I laughed, I even attempted to sing.
The experience invoked me. I was charmed by the scene.

I arrived a mess out of sorts, so I communed in nature with an open heart.

STS-5-Element-Stress-and-Emotion-Cycle.jpg

You retain stress in your organs. Be encouraged to RELEASE that. You don’t deserve it.

I was energetically all over the place; I carried quite a lot to deal…
Chun and those attending with me coalesced their energy & we healed.

Today I feel refreshed, renewed and glad to be a member
of such a loving family at the Tao Healing Center.

We all need it – to reconnect and focus on self.
I’m Qui
Encouraging you to a Mago Retreat. Invest in you and return to well.

PS — Here’s a little note to those who joined me in retreat this weekend and won,
If you find that your body is still sore from our retreated score – no problem, it’s just your Qijong.
