Blow The Whistle

In Communication, dance, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on September 5, 2020 at 8:00 am

Yes, I did. I woke up with Too Short’s song in my head.
I didn’t yawn much but did a lot of bobbing to the beat in bed. 😛

I booty-popped down the stairwell and into the kitchen.
Once I was on the tiled floor I put some real work in.

calculating-cat.jpg

You should’ve seen me. I can really go.
Afterward, I brewed a real stiff cup of jo.

The weekend is at hand and I plan to lead the band.
I’m redecorating the house; new furniture is in the plan.

A manicure and pedicure will also be had.
I’ll laser the middle because later I’ll be bad.

I’m not booty-popping for no specific reason.
Fall is on the way and I want to have the tightest season.

Wink-wink. You know.
Be grown this morn’ and let your imagination go.

It’s ok to let loose a little. Ain’t nobody here but you and I,
I’m Qui
jam with me; move in sync and share the intent in your eyes.

I want to know what you really mean.
Let every move strengthen the scene.

Saturday Night Reasons

Good evening, most attractive. Exactly how goes your day?
Yesterday was a good Friday and I think today is going great.

Would you like a split peach onto your coveted plate?
Your taste is exquisite. Would you like it on your face?

wild-passion-kiss.gif

This kiss, that is. I’m about that affectionate biz.

Gee golly-whiz, I do love a little word play.
A good reason to indulge is always on a Saturday.

In romance novels, the man squeezes and releases her.
This is a good time for deliverance; for tomorrow is Easter, sir.

Shall I release first, pray tell? I don’t mind if I do.
Tomorrow there’ll be eggs in the lawn and life will be anew.

Ooo. Me and you. We can ‘sho be reflectively creative.
When it comes to us being natural; we are Root Chakra related.

We give no thought to it. We do not debate it.
Me and you… you and me… Root Chakra related. 😛

Therefore, on this night we do indeed have reasons
to delve into self and make-good on ignored seasons.

how-to-fake-a-headache

Have you a headache now? Un-uhn. Not tonight dear boys and girls.
Take some BC POWDER and a nice long shower then prepare to rock your mate’s world.

Make tonight hotter than Saturday Night Fever could’ve ever conjured.
Invoke love into the universe; be revived at the sunrise’s bonjour.

I absolutely think that we should.
I’ll bring the water, you bring the good…

liquor. At least I didn’t say “lick her.”

It would be inappropriate to post.
So, in the morning, how would you like your toast?

B.O.B. aka Buttered-on-Both sides? Of course after the bacon and egg combo surprise.

Got it! It’s been in the air for centuries – only I recently thought it.

I think  I’m going to exercise it. Surely this is the season.
The cv can’t stand the heat; indulge in Saturday Night Reasons.

Love making is a natural exercise. When was the last time that you were in the gym?
I’m Qui
Getting-it-in tonight, because tomorrow morning we’ll be revived by the church hymn.

It’s who we are as a people. We’ll get it all in, regardless of pew under steeple.

Am I right? Having said as much, act with natural reason tonight. Retire early with your beau or girly and make natural heat rise.

Getting It In This Weekend

Good morning, Friday. I am glad that you’re here.
I’ve been craving you since Monday; you’re my closing, dear.

For you, I always cheer and this weeks filming went well.
I did what I had to for the talent and crew to not fail.

Last night I looked over the film footage as I labeled it to edit.
Each scene played naturally; as if no script and none had read it.

That’s what’s up dear, Friday. I am in high spirits today,
because my fam is near and dear and doesn’t mind my script play.

What have you been up to over recent days?
Are you staying at home and out of the way

of those with essential careers who must go to and fro?
I pray that you are, because they could be a-symptomatic, yo.

I may be also, therefore, I’m staying inside — until I am tested.
I feel fine, but that doesn’t vibe until I’m officially vetted.

How about you?
What’cha know and what’cha into?

Yesterday, after we wrapped, we took a quick drive
to a nearby lake to see if the scene was alive

and unfortunately it was.
Folks were showing physical distancing little love.

I’m sure that most of folks strolling the lake were doing so with fam.
Still, the gatherings were quite thick; CV is a socialite’s damn.

Oh well. I suppose life will be enjoyed and spent.
Besides CV is deadly to only 20%.

DO WHAT!?
Those stats are nuts!

go-in-the-house_lady.gifGet back. Go back inside for a while.
God ain’t forgot that you’re His child.

You do not have to meet Him so soon.
This isn’t the end; your life is at noon.

Let’s celebrate each day that we’re alive as a high day
starting with staying indoors a little more – this Friday.

What do you say, o’ beloved neighbor?
If you insist on getting ill – CV can pull favor.

Do not muster up the nerve to “go outside anyway.”
I need you to be well until the vaccine is underway.

Today is a good day for us to do our most diligent due,
and lean not to our understanding — that this is a harmless flu.

Feeling bored? Pick up a new hobby or two.
Take up painting, sewing, or running a few.

Me? I’m kicking it with the kid today; she’s all about “natural enhancing,”
so she and I will occupy the living room floor to do some African club dancing.


.
Are you free to catch the beat? Care to join in?
Click play on the video and vibe with me, kin.

Movement is the good stuff — if you can manage to get it in.
I’m Qui
Happy Friday baby, wake up and give your hips a spin.

Get out of bed & dance or you can dance in…

Hello Dolly

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

 

A Bag of Monday

You can guess what’s in the details…

When it comes to bull corn do you really need to know —
down to the last detail from whence it traveled to and fro?

Will not knowing truly throw you into a rut?
You already know what you need to know – just check-in with your gut.

Sit quietly with eyes closed and ask the universe a question or two —
then check-in with your intuition; it’s always true to you.

Then open your eyes and thank God for the depths of truth.
Thank God that you’re not going to hell in a hand basket; His grace is holding you.

So what – if you’ll never know if a man is telling the truth from the start.
Let folks say what they want – know that God knows their heart.

Embracing this grace will prove you to look and feel smart.
Don’t let questionable chatter and worldly banter pierce your heart.

Staying focused on God is indeed a necessary art.
Your intuition is your compass; use it to chart.

What are your thoughts? Do tell what you think.
I’m Qui
and you’re quite intuitive if you think something stinks.

What I Do Know

salt-shaker-dance.gif

A seasoned dancer.

I do know that God is real and that in Him I trust.
What crimes need be committed to warrant the chant: “Lock her up?”

I suppose if Mueller found no wrong doings – then the Clintons must be squeaky clean.
I also know the government does what it wants to take-away from and to add-to any scene.

The worlds way… it’s an old thing, it’s musty and resembles an old box.
I do know that my intuition is gold and that my connection with God rocks.

It’s also true that if you don’t stand for something that you will fall for any old thing.
I do know that we have a creator and it is of Him, to thee I sing.

Wear the cares of this world like salt over your shoulder,”
after mom delivered me those words she turned to granny and said, “I told her!

My ancestors wanted me to know that there is nothing new under the sun.
What I Do Know is that they weren’t lying. Today’s safety is in Wisdom. Get you some.

Don’t spend your time running in packs devised under peer-influenced controls.
God is watching and time is clocking; Vote your interests and pray for your soul.

I don’t need to know it all,
to know not to fall.

This is What I do Know.

What you do with today is solely on you.
Don’t play to the mundane. Call it “an old thang” – that you just don’t do.
On the real, if you want to heal then turn off the news too.

 LET’S ROCK OUT ON LOVE –
It may be our last true defense.

stick-figure-love

Okay. You know me well and how I feel about love.
I’m down to start my day with grown play,  a smile and a genuine hug.

I’m down to tell you just how much your good energy makes me smile.
I do believe love makes cross-country journeying feel like one mile.

Unbiased love is the good stuff, child.
Give some today; be guilty of doling it out.

A good life is yours to live and requires not one day of pout.
Give it and it’ll come back to you; love uses a boomerang rout.

When was the last time that you were God-smacked with love?
I’m Qui
and I’m God-smacking you now. Open up, I’m coming in for the hug.

COME UP

Yesterday I celebrated a special birth and the specific gift of YOU.

I really did and I really do appreciate you.
It’s been 360-days that you’ve supported me with the “come through.”

Yep! I’m into you; thus, as I elevate I am taking you with.
I’m more than a salsa, more like a 7-layer dip.
Me and you, go together like cream & whip.
The storyteller and the comprehender — THIS is our –ish!

Do COME UP if you have not.
Digging me in secret? You little snot.

Come closer, please do. Your energy drives me hot.
Plus a refreshing vantage view is the fabric of my thoughts.

Whether good or naught
It is good to share invigorating thoughts.

Speaking of, did you get some over the holiday?
I pray thee did COME UP in the bedroom and slay!

If you did, good morning and hooray!
If you did not, please cop some today.

Nobody else is reading this – it’s just you and me. Okay?
We are still in a phase of the holidays; you still have today.

For us to collectively COME UP on prosperity is my dream
and my pitching prayer for 2019.

In a few days, a new sur-number will be our scene.
I’m looking forward to more good times. If you know what I mean.

dance-a-jig.gifClimb atop of this hump with me and let’s dance a jig.
If you’re still on vacation, let’s sip a swig.

Child, it’s not too early. We’ve already been over this.
Life is serious most of the year, for the remainder lets exploit a little bliss.

Good morning, kiss-kiss, and sip-sip. We can put an early wink in our coffee.
A little Baileys Irish with chocolate or perhaps jo that tastes like toffee?

COME UP on a new flavor, come on a new routine.
COME UP on what’s good in life; maintain or change the scene.

Me? I’m up early because “the write” dictated my yawn.
I’m Qui
Still enjoying thee at day 360; still UP for your charms.

BRING IT IN!
Let me hold you in my literal arms.

Recap and Dap

rosie-perez-soultrain-dancing.gifGood Morning sweetheart, how strong was your weekend?
Did you stay in and conserve spend or did you go out with friends?

Me? I did a little bit of both; on Friday night I danced my worth.
On Saturday night and Sunday night, I stayed in and did homework.

Hey! I’m usually a pretty hard player but I love to work even more.
Be it school or shooting in the thirds rule – I love a productive score.

And so once again, I’m all in at this new weeks begin.
I’m pretty drunk off of possibilities, less off the juice and gin.

Gin isn’t on the diet and orange juice is too sweet.
Good Morning sweetheart, I’m into the meat.

What is the entrée today? What’s on the menu to pick and choose?
I’ll do just about anything if it doesn’t involve watching the news.congratulations cavaliers.gif

Ooo-oo-oo the news does lose, though I do have three cheers
and a resounding shout-out to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

They’ve once again done the ding-dang-thing.
Congrats Cavaliers on winning the series scene.

Today does have a winning hue – so get on out there and shine on it!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, if you want it – put in the work, grind and hone it.

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.

Dancing Through

In Communication, dance, News on January 1, 2017 at 4:59 pm

IMG_4874.PNGHappy New Year dear beloved. Another start is at hand and with so much opportunity to share.
I brought it in with BELVEDERE & friends at The Copacabana in Times Square.

I’m not much of a drinker but the pricey admission included an open bar.
A few extra bucks and good luck – had them treating me like a star.

No line! The venue’s line was down the block.
My crew and I just walked in, all green lights – no stop.

New York truly Rocks!
To return again — I’ll never stop.

2016 went out with a bang
Excitement was key and Qui is my name.

It just went together,it all made sense and I gave myself to it.
After one glass of vodka and cranberry juice – I couldn’t do it.

Have another one– that is. I’m just not a drinker.
Thank God that I’m not, because by the nights end, I was the only #Thinker.

By the night’s end, I had palmed 3 glasses of Cape Cod
You don’t have to drink a glass to hold a glass. I just smiled and gave head-nods.

I danced for 4-hours the mood was never sour and we all had great time.
I met the coolest couple in VIP that elevated my experience to Cloud9.

Vanessa and Zack are from Australia and they paid for a wall’less sky booth
and then offered us to kick it with them in their space — on just being cool.

zack-veronica-times-square.JPG

The Copacabana sky view with Zack and Vanessa

Zack, a handsome gent with accent and awesome great blonde hair
let not a moment pass that he was whispering compliments to me of his girl so fair.

Vanessa was his dame with the big smile and bigger heart –
The idea was hers that we join them at our VIP start.

To me- It came out of nowhere.
But good people are everywhere
especially in Times Square!!

Zack and Vanessa are from down under though last night they felt like kin.
Should I ever visit Australia, I’ll be sure to drop in on my new friends.

I burned major calories. So much so my FITBIT experienced a data freeze.

qui-zack

Zack & Qui clowning PROPERLY

My lungs had no time to wheeze. Dancing is like walking to me.

Times Square did not disappoint. Heck NEW YORK never does.
I always arrive feeling alive then submerge myself in the love.

I love this place and day one of 2017 has unfolded in style,
I’m Qui
On Malcolm X Blvd. having a blast and living a little wild.

Last night was the most awesome. Ooo child.
Happy New Year, less frowns more smiles.
