Leo. Virgo. Keep or Forgo?

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Self Improvement on October 21, 2020 at 5:30 am

Astrology birthmarks are often remarkable tells. Leo and Virgo create heaven and raise hell.

Why? Because both are picky about their birthright.

Leo & Virgo. What relationship whoa’s?

Picky and particular Leo will accept nothing less — than to have dibs on the real estate in their lover’s chest.

Picky, picky, picky Virgo is en route with bundled wheat — they will have not a hair out of place and demand attention when they speak.

Game is not weak between these two. So different they are; each one responds to a cue.

As a team, a Deux — the two can thrive. This pair needs clarification on who will drive.

It should be the one with the most alpha stance. Is the Virgo wearing a dress, nakedness, or pants?

Leo is a cat; they wear no clothes. They are upfront & address the wind @ their nose.

Their loyalty is weightier than old gold. The sunny rays that encompass them is a feeling to behold.

Regardless of what the Virgo is wearing — they will always display tact; no mindless swearing.

In the category of intellect is where this fair Virgin lives. Looking down-bridge onto the valley of imperfect wills.

ISO nothing for naught, the Virgo seeks skill — in hopes to add dimensions to what they already feel.

Success is always in the POV of the Virgo. Success is a daily mantra lived by a Leo.

Have you ever seen a Leo return from hunt, in the wild? Have you ever seen a Leo make a Virgo smile?

I have and it was a pretty good look. The kitchen has more potential when the two of them cook.

I’ve read astrology notations that say, Leo and Virgo are quite similar — in a way.

The Leo is lone and the Virgo is not a Gemini. Leo moves the day and Virgo moves the night.

It’s a win-win with a twinge of a turbulent ride. There’s nothing that can’t be overcome if respect is always nigh.

Should either of these zodiacs ever decide to control the other — you can chalk this pairing up as a real unsuccessful mother.

These two control their flow — they are independent of the others’ to and fro. In their world, everyday has the potential to be a show.

In light of, this you have to know — persistence belongs to the Virgo and Leo.

Have you ever known either one to accept a “No?”

I didn’t think so. It’s just not the way that they roll.

Still, if you are trying to make a relationship goal — I’m not thoroughly convinced this pair is a completed “o.”

A circle that is not MUTUAL RESPECT complete — is a union that is weak and unable to withstand relationship heat.

It’s true, it’s true. So, don’t let that be the issue with you. — Do karmic reflections to help you see-through. Because “What you do to them, will be done to you.” The Virgo and the Leo are reflective; Iron x’s 2.

The ego will pop up over both of your heads… in such a moment, refer back here, to what I’ve said: 

Mutual Respect will warm your heart and your bed.

So, when I look at this paring, up-close and at a distance — I conclude,

“You don’t want to miss this!”

Two-gether this pair will build the best nest. Keep this coupling on your wish list.

They are great at parties and the “the bee’s knees” on holiday!

I’m Qui

…from a Leo POV, the Virgo also makes excellent hay. 

Here’s an honest opinion derived from me: “I do believe this pairing is an investment to keep.”

The Earth is a cold place when it is void of a balance of heat.

Use the heat from the fire to process the wheat.

Even Better

Historic annals are in the progress of recording; refrain from being the one penned as ‘doing the farting.

You’ve got to do that for you. At Wednesday night’s debate, Senator Harris came through. Her intentions were forthcoming; her conversation is truth.

At the poll’s bare your souls and vote for the interest of you and tomorrow’s youth’s youths. Legacy will come through. What will history say about you?

If things are kosher for you now, you should strive to make them even better. Informed lobes shine like gold; they function best when knowledge is wetter.

Let this lesson that is upon our nation be a no forgetter. If you’re wiser today than yesterday — that’s even better.

 

Life is a script that each man makes on a fly. A foiled kidnapping of the MI governor was an excellent catch by the F.B.I.

Thank God for law and order; we remain safe during this by-and-by. We’re living out a series not scripted – well at least not nigh. Please believe history will rely on footage archived from this era of our lives. Oh my.

Do we want our names on that? We can change the narrative and punch COVID until it’s flat if we go to the polls and form our vote to frame up like a bat.

It’s what we need to do to insert the facts. With a little unity between you and me, we can get our country back.

To the goodness in our history, we should all strive to tether. To achieve unity across our national community is key and even better.

We can do it. I know that I want it. Let’s run this thing on in; no need to punt it.

Debates are dangerous because airborne viruses can make people sick. Further in-person debates must be for entertainment’s sake –because you and I – we got this.

No more “hot mess” or debating b.s. – this moment is a no forgetter. I’ll see you at the polls; the tallies won’t be close, because you and I can do better.

I vote PEVL then I drop my ballot off at the poll. I appreciate the community love and every clerking soul.

You are a front liner, too – your efforts are gold. Thank you, thank you. May God bless you, 100-fold.

100-fold, in terms of an investment, would mean that you’ll receive 100 x’s more in return. To give unselfishly yields the brightest returns in history; selfish calculations always burn.

I believe in you and me; I believe in the American go-getter,
I’m Qui
If you believe that we can do it too, well now — that’s even better.

First Thing is First

The first thing that I want to say is, “Good morning, and I love you.” The next thing that follows: a kiss on the forehead before I hug you.

Are you well? Did you sleep okay? Are you ready to start the day? Always give more and put forth the effort to score; this after you pray.

There are many optimum ways to start the day. Choose one and hone it; write-in-stone some time to play.

Noon will be here in a minute, don’t forget to feed your soul. Consume raw fruit and veggies to stave off viruses and colds.

 

Drink lots and lots of water, for you are composed of 60% of it. Heed life wisdom, if indeed life, you love it.

Hug every day that you awake, refreshed, and in good health. Lay low and pray for others; it’s okay to live a little stealth.

If we pray one for another, then how can we fail? I stay in “W” mode; I’ve no time to chart an “L.”

The evening will surely come and award us another day complete. We’ll thank God for our health and the strength to stand on our own feet.

Nothing is to be taken for granted; every second is precious and sweet. Your time is appreciated here. Without you, there’d just be me. I gotta’ thank thee. xo.

Monday’s are always sweet and are the perfect starting point,
I’m Qui

breakfast & love to thee at this opportunistic joint.

T is For

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on October 1, 2020 at 5:15 am

T is for the trumpet of la niece; Mary Trump is the loudest. T is for patriotic triumph and Americans are the proudest.

T is for more terrific times, and of course, Thursday. T is for thorough research and trendy verb play.

T is for togetherness; I miss you. Do you miss me? —  T is for the tight squeeze that we could remain in w/o unity.

Today I feel a lot of love in my community. I feel a renew of love between you and me.

T is for Thank You I am grateful for all that I have recently heard.  People in my red state will vote for unity’s sake. Tone is always word.

T is for think. Don’t you dare just go with the flow.  T is for thoughtfulness; exhibit as much during your to and fro.

T is for talk Don’t engage in it if you are not prepared.  Intelligence is weighed; each listener to parse his own fair.

C is for compassion. There’s always room for THAT today.  T is for the tenacity to kneel in reverence and pray.

Time waits for no man, and time is not infinite for any of us.  It is time we cut the –ish and focus intent on humanity and love.

We’ve done it before — and we gained the world’s TOP SCORE.

Let’s do it again. — Elect a new president and win.

Are you down?  T is for thwart. Thwart our role as world clown.

T is for your town. How would you like yours to look tomorrow?

I’m Qui

Thinking about we, and how we can thwart our COVID tally sorrows.

We can do it. Masks thwart transmission. — We can do it. VOTE to render this era into remission.

“T” up

Do you HIATUS

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on September 25, 2020 at 8:05 am
Clarity and meaning.

I like to HIATUS. I really do love to do me. I pause the writes and hop a flight to spend a few nights in Cali or the NYC. 

Once in my accommodations I kick back and relax. I meditate and pray for bigger faith and God has got my back.

Creativity does not lack, new concepts are in the bag and I am grateful for that. 

As of late, I have been on hiatus in the era of Corona  – where masks and shield glass is all up on us.

Everyone should be mindful of spittle, cough and sneeze. The people are conflicted on what to do, who, and what to believe.

Please believe in the number of Americans that have died from this virus. Mask-up and handle up to help thwart our ill-spirals. 

The idiocracy of our day is on display as I travel to and fro. Let us find unity in community; let us focus and vote.

Our country is still young and we don’t relish in “choke.” If we have something to say, let us show up to the polls and vote.

I love the U.S. and I love you. It’s between you and I what we decide to do.

Though if you are still into the red, the white and the blue, I suggest bridging more understanding between me and you.

Where did MUTUAL RESPECT go? We can get it back. Let’s recommit to our unity-values and pin discord to the mat.

Tell outsiders who seek to interfere – to ‘mind your business and ‘get back. Forgo arguing on social media; don’t wear the mad-hat. Let bots troll on thots — you’ve got nothing to do with that.

Take a break sometimes and breathe; take a break from the societal fuss. To self preserve is still my word, so Do You HIATUS?

This morning I slept in and I’ll be having brunch in bed,

I’m Qui

thinking about we. Please marinate on what I’ve said.

IDIOCRACY is a movie, not a goal:

Avoid idiocracy. Vote.

Vision and Focus from 1860

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Politics on September 18, 2020 at 9:16 am

What does tomorrow look like in your mind’s eye? 10-years, 20-years, 200-years from nigh?

You ought to always think forward, from what I just read – yesterday’s woke vision was more than a century ahead.

So I was talking to Fab5Freddy the other day, and he dropped a link referencing The Wide Awakes.

I was intellectually-smashed and enlightened to the hilt because Fab is always on “the progressive” tip.

My mind is always in-search-of a new wrinkle, so I took a quick researching sip — and learned that the Wide Awakes, in essence, have been evolution’s progressive whip.

Formed from the Republican Party in 1860, they pushed for President Lincoln to win. Then they trolled the states with ‘freedom sway‘ for my enslaved kin until the Emancipation Proclamation kicked-in.

What great vision. Evidence reveals that they are still on a mission.

United. Collectively we can conquer all. The Wide Awakes of 1860 had vision and gall.

The spirit of their focus has strengthened with time and has brought many iconic artists together to vibe.

From ObeyTheGiant to Fab5Freddy, Ebony Brown, and Alicia Keys — I am grateful to witness the fruit with century-year-old roots, alive & well, and in full swing.

Life is all about learning and getting better. Tell me something new, and I turn into a research go-getter.

Hank Willis Thomas heads up the 2020 Wide Awake group that defines itself as “a network of like minds who create in the name of liberation, artist sovereignty, and the evolution of society” that aims “to radically reimagine the future and enable self-emancipation.”

Hank Willis Thomas. Who is he? He is an American conceptual artist whose capacity produces the most creative + smartest.

Per the JstorDaily – They were known as the “Wide Awakes,” because of their youth, enthusiasm, and torch-lit nighttime marches. “Now the old men are folding their arms and going to sleep,” said William H. Seward while campaigning for Lincoln, “and the young men are Wide Awake.”

They ran through the streets of the South in the 1860’s — they are a heavy weigh-in as to why slavery missed me

The spirit of their fruit is more than a century years old and their reconvene is our progressive gold.

This topic reminds me that we are always living in legacy-making days. Reality revives Wide Awake and invokes a true quote from SCHOOL DAZE:

New 411 keeps the eyes wide. I credit this brain wrinkle to “the woke” Fab5.

TOPS

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Politics, Science on September 16, 2020 at 9:26 am

A hump, a hill or a mountain? Regardless the elevation, I am trying to be on top! The amount of sound bytes that one phone call can produce is quite a lot.

Ask the prime head-of-household at Pennsylvania’s block of 16. I think after talking to Bob Woodward, he knows what I mean.

New sound bytes are indeed a situation that needs to be “gotten on top of.” And FYI, never try to re-word what you’ve already said, love. It’s not a good for anyone, let alone the ‘dot gov.

Remember when online browsing, at any “country” prompt – the United States would always be first? Things have changed from yesterday and I have a longing thirst — to be tops! The dismantling of our status quo has really got to stop. 

There are 40-plus days until the 2020 Election. Please pay attention to vote towards a re-direction.

Science is real and Mother Earth is proving this now. Global warming is about extreme weather, not just the summers heightened plow.

Our winters will prove to be more intense — and beach front property will decrease in rent.

Hurricanes and massive tropical storms — that used to be once-in-a blue moon, are now the norm.

Glaciers are melting faster than ice cream in the oven. Mother Earth is sick of our girth; she needs human lovin.’

COVID cases are soaring through the roof. The growing daily tally is our sobering proof. 

We must buckle down and get on top of this. For our leadership, the world insists. 

It is we, that they miss and I pray that they will never stop. They yearn, like we yearn; the world enjoyed us being on top.  Now we’re facing a pandemic that is difficult to stop. Wear a mask and gloves, don’t let COVID cop. 

Let’s get on with the-get-on; let’s leap like new frogs. Let’s show spine at the polls and take America off of “pause.” Let’s value ourselves like the art of Hip Hop — and not auction off our constitutional rights like a thot

I don’t sleep in bunkbeds anymore but I did as a child — and being on top was always my style.

I suppose I prefer to be TOPS anytime that I am on display,

I’m Qui

Good morning  to the leader in thee. Elevate and take your place.

I will see you at the top.

The Closure

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on September 11, 2020 at 4:50 am

The top of a sew-in unit is called a closure, but I’m no weave stylist, so that has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m talking about, today.

Today is Friday; the last day in a week full of explosive and colorful revelations. From politics to the number of folks getting sick — there’s a lot to un-pack and sew-up before our situation can heal. Let’s get to it!

I miss you. I miss our coffee/lunch dates and our hiatus/rendezvous.
I miss sneaking up behind you, covering your eyes, and hugging you.

I do. Don’t you? The wind has brought in more than the flu.
Leaving the door wide open and… gosh, I miss you.

Please wear a mask every day, in and out of the house –
especially if others are around – who breathe from nose and mouth.

 

Wear gloves, if they’re available and keep hand sanitizer on-hand.
We can’t win this thing with only half of a marching band.

We need all hands-on deck to be thoroughly cleaned a.s.a.p.
If we are to close up this Covid thing and reclaim the lives of “we.”

 

I need thee and the good energy that you bring to revive unity
and stitch up our community;

to invoke America to sing a song of togetherness. I happily confess —  that when it comes to reconstructions, we do it best.

 

Trials come and trials go,
let our united spirit rise and show.

Our hole of discord needs to be closed.
Let us use our vote to administer a sew.

 

When someone tells you who they are – do nothing less than believe.
I’m Qui
With needle and thread, excited about the prospect of sewing peace.

I could use a hand. ❤

BOT BOOTY

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on September 9, 2020 at 4:47 am

About the size of a gnat’s arse, is how large the brain may be —
of a “mock-account holder” who dabbles-in “pretending to be…”

Oui. Oui. It is true, it is true.
When you live your purpose folk may want to be you.

This moment in time ushers in big BOT season.
The 2020 Election coming up has got to be the reason.

Social Media operates under a constant threat of hacks.
Blogs are in the same lane; you gotta’ know that.

BOT BOOTY is the hind parts of one who is lowly hired
to infiltrate, snake, and replace your peace with faux fires.

I noticed a couple of bots that have named themselves after me.
I’m flattered that they recognize that “words of wisdom are key.”

Though I have a feeling that the unauthorized URL suckling’s of my namesake
have not formed to poeticize, but perhaps to confuse and perpetrate.

The number of countries that drop in to read ye ol’ chronicles of Griot
reminds me to be mindful of my communication flow.

Bot Booty knows nothing about that.
Google yourself and see what comes back.
Bot Booty website’s are comparable to URL fat
or at the most -the literal hind parts of a gnat.😛

Don’t kiss or click that!

Today is a good day. I can feel it in my bones.
Today is a good day because I’m beloved by my T-jones.

Today is a good day because I get to talk to you.
Monday is one of my favorite days; it conveys the week anew.

I’m wearing a flower headband sitting upright in bed and I’m sipping cold jo.’
The sun is on its way to meet the day. I’m starting mine with you, yo.

How did your weekend go? Was it a productive scene?
I spent time pressing play and rewind on Beyonce’s Black Is King.

I can’t get enough of that feel-good piece.
God bless Disney for such a sweet and reflective release.

Beyonce and Jay Z — as a power couple are beast!
They portray what they feel and uphold “the real;”  
they are investing in legacy.

Home is where your heart is, and your heart resides within.
No matter where you go or where you live, you will always be among kin.

Life is short. Live every moment ‘up and smile as much as you please.
Monday’s possibilities are for your realities. Conquer them with ease.

Happy Labor Day, baby. Will you spend it eating saucy, good food?

Glad to be spending it with thee – I’m forgoing the delicious ‘Q for more produce.
