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 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.?

Reliance on Science

NEEDED.

Good afternoon kinfolk. What’s good in the hood today?
I’ve been on a researching binge of what scientist have to say

about this pandemic that is sweeping the world by far.
It’s being compared to yesterday’s strains of SAR.

I woke at 8am this morning to an incredible read
that a family member sent to me; an educational seed.

It was from STATNews.com and therein it conveys
that Scientists are in ploy; good minds are at play.

Still, for the masses, they have nothing good to say.
They are working from behind the eight ball to restore the day.

Turns out that W.H.O. did not offer our country a CORONA Test and we didn’t really say NO.
We have always staffed the biggest and brightest minds in science – per history shows.

So when initially we were notified of a test prototype –
America just responded with its usual rigmarole ‘hype:

no-thanks_meme.gif

Feeling nostalgic about our capacity to lead.

But this administration has laid off CDC scientists; they’re in the unemployment line.
I am over here on my domestic research looking for a viral bind;

a natural substance that can render protection.
I’m also praying for a new W.H. resident after the election.

We need leadership. We need healthcare solutions. We need the V.A.
We need to adopt an INDIVIDUAL’s MISSION to help ourselves every day.

It’s okay if you want to look at New York as Governor Cuomo leads the way.
He doesn’t have a blueprint on COVID19, but his wisdom is at play.

Washing our hands is a good way to avoid spread, as well as not visiting your friends.
If we all take a minute to cut-it-out, lives won’t unnecessarily end.

This is something that we all can comprehend.
Go on and hit up Skype and Facetime again.

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and I drank myself silly.
I was in the company of a few friends; well kind of, but not really.

I’m about science and safety so —
I partied unbridled and solo on video. 😛

What did you do, yo? Please don’t tell me that you —
were locked in the house with a pursed mouth watching the news.

Were you? That’s what’s up. I applaud you for thinking “safety first.”
Me, too, man, but I couldn’t save the plan of not quenching the calendar-day thirst.

Enough of that. It’s HUMP DAY and I’m talking much,
because I miss your presence and the human touch.

I am glad that I have this blog page to write
and connect with you on life-saving insight.

So, if you are home and have a minute to “knowledge add,”
I implore you to go on over and read the article and comments on STAT.

Do it and be wise.
Do it to save lives.

Let’s do what we can to stop this virus, by comedy-hook or lab crook,
I’m Qui
Be encouraged to keep living and take your cue from The Brooks:

Calibrating Our Perception

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on March 13, 2020 at 9:05 am

Sufferin-succotash_Sylvester-the-cat.gifDon’t be put off by the idea of change.
Change is key and spittle is lame.

We are not shaking hands or hugging right now, man.
We’re planning on living long and enjoying the land.
Amen?

Therefore, let’s wash our hands, workout and make some changes real quick,
like not eating out as much, because a food worker may be sick.

Would you even know it?
The wrapped entree doesn’t show it.

But you don’t really want to take that chance 
So no, we’re not eating out now – man.

Let’s  get back to  taking our lunch
for a couple more days – okay, a whole bunch.

Got plans to go out with friends tonight? Covid19 is more than just hype.
Based on reports here and abroad, it’s taking folks’ lives.

Please take care of yourself and don’t go out tonight.
Surround yourself with like-friends and kick it by Skype.

Do you have streaming services? It’s a great way to catch a show.

Coughing-with-babyhand

Don’t be fooled by the baby hand…

The movie theater is likely open for business, but do you really want to go?

Coughers like to go out and they may have the same film taste as you.
They may as well be a monsters behind your seat hacking up a “BOO!”

You know that you are going to run.
Running isn’t your idea of fun.

When was the last time that you had family time, yo?
When was the last time that you played dominoes or Skip Bo?

Dust off those video games and get engaged with the fam again.
Turn your room into a nightclub and Facetime with friends.

Calibrate your perception and let’s be proactive,
I’m Qui
Staying in more often means we’re being cautiously active.

BE IN CONTROL

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS I

In Communication, education, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 8, 2020 at 1:57 am

Key Black History_Multi Media Players-1.gifI have a feeling this title will be a reoccurring one
because being a Multi Media Player is so much fun. So, let’s start with:

ANGELA BASSETT
She knows only to smash it!
Have you ever seen a show with her in it
and she didn’t win it?

BEYONCE is always about an intentional slay.
Learn the rules, and get in Formation if you want to play!

SHONDA RHIMES is a series network Dime.
Holding audiences captive is her M.O. shine.

QUI is WHO keeps
the Griot beat
and yields sublime rhymes
that chronicle our times.

OPRAH enhances the view inside of our homes
via the many positive morale shows on OWN.

She mastered adolescent success and transcended it to grown.
Kicking it with JADA PINKETT-SMITH is to listen strong.

She’s got a Podcast Show titled RED TABLE TALK.
She is a woman of will and she walks the walk.

Introducing Ms. SYLEENA JOHNSON – to those who don’t already know.
She’s new to me via  TV ONE’s SISTER CIRCLE show.

She is one of four hosts. Please tell me that you’ve seen it?
Once I tuned in, I realized just how much I mean it…

to support them.
Their union of love needs no alteration or hem.

On a recent episode I became a Syleena fan –
when I heard her new joint titled, WOMAN:

These are just a few skill capacity slayers
that I’m proud to list as Multi Media Players.

What about you?
What’s that thing that you do –
that you are into?

It’s because of you that each player get’s any play.
Big THANKS to you and your consumer ways.

Black History wouldn’t be the same without you,
I’m Qui
grateful and humble. This bow is for you.

The BACKEND

Click here to read about the “Venus of Beautiful Butt.”

I think that it’s high time we talk about the ‘hind-kind’ again.
As in your backside, badonkadunk, your derriere, o’ friend.

Let’s talk about your keister, your tuchus, your butt.
Let’s talk past the quarterbacks last count & hut-hut…

Word is, at 50 most folks should consider getting a colonoscopy done.
I am no such age yet nor do I imagine the procedure is much fun

but it’s a teller of what’s going on back there; a way to measure the sum
of -ish you ate yesterday that has or has not exited your bum.

Anywho, between me and you, I went to see a GI specialist the other day.
I marched my healthy arse in, knowing exactly where it’s been – to hear the doc’s say.

Who want’s to wait until 50 to get a peek
inside of the mounds that we call our seat?

Not me.
I insisted the doc take a peek

and he did oblige me with care.
He lit up his wand and went in my bum to see what’s up in there.

He looked twice
and asked if I’d like him to look thrice?

alien-butt-shaker

Not if twice is enough.
He was very gentle and not rough.

I really and truly appreciate that.
Upon retreating he concluded ‘I had a healthy ass.’

I’m paraphrasing of course, and the procedure was not a full body
scope of 6-ft bendable rope; it was not a complete C-scopy.

It was a short scope with a light
that went in for 2-3ft of insight.

There was nothing there.
My anus is secure beyond my mound-pair.

Sir Mix-Alot appreciates a firm-round and I’m happy to report,
that he hasn’t seen mine and I’m a healthy score.

What about you? Have you given any attention to your backdoor?
Beyond your lover checking it out; beyond the ball, the beads, and the oar?

Well, I’m not sure what you’re into.
Feel free to use whatever you want to

I’m good with that, I’m knocking at the human core.
I’m making sure to not be demure about the backdoor.

Are you bi-anal? It’s the perfect question to close with. 😛

it’s the weekend baby and I’m a curious lady, how is your backend?

NEWS PERUSE

Good-News Lady w Garter Belt

Good morning good people. How are you today?
The news has a few views that I’d like to play.

Let’s take a walk across ye ol’ pond today
and witness Harry and Meghan carve out a new space.

What’s that you say? You have not heard?
Well, Diana’s baby boy has sent formal word

that he and his bride mean no disrespect
but intend to recoil as senior royals – for a life of more let.

Let means “to allow.” Also, the couple has an adorable son.
Prince Harry must be reminiscent; for his son he wishes more fun.

Therefore, he and our Meghan are planning to do a newer thing:
get dual residences on both sides of the pond. Quite fly and exciting!

I wish them well. Meghan Markel is born of our beloved country.
She and Prince Harry are indeed a new groove. New grooves can feel funky.

And that’s okay. Right? Change can bump and bruise.
I think the young royals are onto something. It’s time to stick-and-move.

What’s that you say? Where on Earth have I been?
In the checkout line reading tabloids, o’ friend. 😛

What about you?
I’ve also got a couple of PSA’s that I need to shoot.

One conveys auto safety and being compliant on the road.
I love that you keep your car shiny-clean but let’s conquer a higher goal:

clearer skies tomorrow.
Smoke plumes from a tailpipe equal sorrow.

Dont-smoke-out_car-emissions.gif

We can’t have soot-like emissions continually going up into the air.
QUI FILMS is supporting this PSA because we’re drivers of dimensional care.

Drivers of good and common sense – please endeavor to remain fresh.
Let us all be mindful of the road and the danger of bad breath.

Wait. Do what?
Yes. Bad breath made the PSA cut.

The second PSA that I am working on
is about the hazards of breath-too-strong.

Let me slow down and point-out the calcified fact
that heart disease thrives via the build-up of plaque.

bad-breath-horse.gifPlaque on your teeth need not cause you to hush.
Be friendly & chatty with others  after you brush. 🙂

It’s a good ambience and your friends will cease to frown
when you and your long conversation comes around.

I know that most of us have conversation on a variety of hues.
I wouldn’t be surprise if you dropped a line about this NEW PERUSE.
It’s okay if you do.

All publicity isn’t good publicity, but you are a good soul.
I would think if you talk about me, it’s as good as gold –
and that’s goal.

Am I right?
May goodness be yours by the day and by night.

Me? I’m up early reading and couldn’t refuse the write.
A NEWS PERUSE is a connective tool to world-view insight.

And while I’m taking it easy – by crossing the pond and talking film shop,
life is really good-to-go, good kinfolk — but world news isn’t so hot.

We, the people are the news. What we do composes the worlds view,
I’m Qui
Always involved in a new days evolve, positive news, encouragement, and you.

PS — If you’re wondering why I didn’t mention IRAN?
I prefer to leave the fish in the frying pan.
You don’t need my views on that particular stance.
Let’s make LOVE the news; let’s start a new band.
Remember WE ARE THE WORLD? Let’s sing and hold hands.

2020 is upon us and everything has the potential to be new.
What is it that thou desirest? What will you do this year or you?

Everyday is uncertain, as is every breath in and out.
Your body is autonomous – but you don’t have to run routes.

No need to do more laps around a process that you have
that leaves you tapped-out of energy and with a block on creative gas.

Leave that route in the past. Today focus on building-up whatever you may lack.
Do it because you need to and ideas of ‘how to’ will begin to stack.

Go ahead. Give it a go,
And just like that, you’ll soon be a pro

at calling good energy your way.
positive-vibe-karmaIt’s January 3rd and it is your day.

It is my day too.
I have enjoyed January 1 and 2.

Though I must admit,
I heard Day 3 is usually “the hit!”

Are you hitting it?
I’m up early for the jo and the griot-spit.

Communication.
I compose these pieces to promote positive relations.

Let anxiety and lack-of peace hit the door.
Tell old man lack that you ain’t with him anymore.

Don’t ever choose to — not do the best for you.
And just like that the universe will move to meet you.

Affirmations. Are you still saying them?
Practice them often and watch negativity hem.

Come on, it’s the first Friday of a new year and
I’m in it to help us collectively win it, man.

I have a feeling that we are more linked that even I know.
Is it true that you’ve channelled-off of the “NEWS” show?

World news continues to be a hot mess.
Fixing our issues is something that God does best.

Let’s give it to Him
and watch miraculous amounts of negativity hem.

If you don’t like the way things are going with and/or around you
a conversation with God will relieve all and pull you through.

And just like that – your vision will become clearer;
peace is yours when God is nearer.

Get your peace. I am certainly in route to get mine,

Good morning to thee. Today your best self will shine.

Go on and put in the work. Be mindful that you’re doing it for you.

Advance in love and watch bigger love come through.

So many ports of entry.

Good morning New Year. I’ve been waiting on you.
There are quite a few points that I’d like to work through.

2019 was a mother and you held the door for her leave.
I appreciate your entrance; you are fresh air to breathe.

Good morning, good morning. Let it always be new between you and I.
2020: I’m focused plenty; for you, I’ve got eyes.

I like the strength of your thighs. May I cop a feel?
2020 your hips can yield plenty as it pertains to intellectual appeal.

Oh yes. Please come in and do take your time.
You and I are going to get along just fine.

From the span of the calendar to all that God holds true,
2020 it’s good to meet you; allow me to accentuate you.

May you encompass a host of electric vehicles, hybrids and the likes,
humanity, wisdom and love; much less digital hacking and fights.

Good morning New Year. It’s so good to meet you.
Be not coy with your grace, a world healing is natural and due.

Excited is my heart and every molecule that composes me,
that you and I should finally meet.

Welcome beloved 2020.
Through you, the flow will be plenty.

.

Have you ever been reading and certain phrases and words catch your eye?
Happens to me all of the time – I shan’t lie,

and in those moments my lids grow wide
as I comprehend the minds of other lives.

At the point where deep intellectualism resides
every story has peaks & valleys; today we focus on The High.

The Almighty “Oh My;” the one responsible for your spirit, mind and bod.
Let’s talk about The Most High, I call Him: Pops and God.

What do you call Him? Do you call Him at all?
If you don’t everyday, do call when your probs are tall.

I do.
And like supernatural fixin’s – He always come through.

spinning news paperSo I was reading this piece in the New York Times
that says Christians be talking but God doesn’t make “the chime.”

Folks are not talking about God everyday.
I was a bit surprised; I responded, “Whatchu’ say?

I really didn’t want to believe it.
But my guy has not only been telling me this — he heaves it

every time I mention God in conversation,
he says, “Most folks wouldn’t make that relation.”

I be like, “What?
It feels like taking one to the gut.

I suppose I did assume everyone talks about ‘The Most High.’
Especially at the start of everyday; upon opening their eyes,

but the New York Times has published otherwise – so I had to vent.
In fact, the percentage of folks that talk about God often is 7%.

That alone won’t pay the rent when Christianity is at an all time high.
What does it mean to be a Christian? Is ‘believing in God’ a time that’s still nigh?

I sure hope so.
Though Stephen Hawking and Einstein said “no.”

Both men believed more in Science as the life-creation reason
and that human stories and calendar glory created the Christmas season.

Okay.
Then there’s my say.

prayingAgain, I pray and God comes through.
I believe quantum fluctuation belongs to God, too.

If you are not familiar with it,
no probQF makes life in quantum physics.

I believe creation can occur via quantum fluctuation,
and also, that God gave it to us to make such relation.

Is that okay?
No right or wrong needs to be at play

if we can come together and agree on this day
that a higher being, our God has the first and last say.

After all, it won’t be you nor I
that give quantum fluctuation or creates life.

Science is important and I am a woman of such,
but even Science has a beginning; a divine push.

Supernatural forces work for-and-against us everyday.
Please do not live this life ill-prepared for the game you must play.

Life is a game that must be played,”
be properly prepared or by stress be slayed.

Your power is present lest you allow it to be erased
by not believing in God and the schematics of grace.

You are a soldier – please take your place.
God is your power source – let this knowledge not be erased.

It’s okay to lean on Him and live in grace.
I really hoped the lack of God-talk was just a phase.

Unfortunately, I see
that this has become the norm in society.

Though it doesn’t always have to be.
You and I can change that – conversation is key.

Science-God.gif

Again, I am a woman of Science, my upcoming Bachelors degree confirms.
I’m Qui
and I think, ‘the elimination of God talk’ yields hope – a certain burn.

It’s okay to educate ourselves and to  learn —
but not to the point that we ignore our spiritual discern.

I’d have wished you a Merry Christmas yesterday
but I didn’t want to interrupt your “celebrate.”

I can only imagine that you cooked your best, mingled with fam and ate.
Then you probably worked it off indoors — (the way that you like to play).

And I get it.
I didn’t want to hit you up while you were hitting it.

Did you consume some sweet potato pie?
I did – a small piece or two. I ain’t gone lie.

It was good but it wasn’t Mom’s; hence it didn’t taste the same.
Merry is the season and Jesus is the reason,  (that’s Mary’s son’s name).

Black-Jesus.gifThe calendar pushes us into the “mass shopping” lane.
Shopping isn’t king. Don’t forget Mary’s baby’s name.

Isn’t He why you’re feeling so so merry?
Let Him get those burdens up off ya – DO NOT carry.

You knew that right?
Now dance all day and dance all night.
Believe that all will be alright.
Eat a sugar plum or two from your dreams tonight.

You deserve it.
Not getting enough love? Then serve it.

You serve it so well.
Tell opposing notions to ‘go to hell.’

I know that family can sometimes work on your last nerves.
They too, have refrained from putting your philosophy on the curb.

So it’s mutual

the essence of family.
Amen. Now pass the ham to me.

I love leftovers. Don’t you?
Last nights fragments? We took up a few.
Therefore, “going-in again” is something we’re sure to do.
How about you?

A Happy Holidays is still in order from me to you.
What’s that you say that you’re getting into?

Will you be jitted-up for New Year’s Eve?
states-mmj-legalPerhaps travel a stint and smoke some weed?

Vegas or Cali? Where are you planning on going?
I know cold Colorado does not have your itinerary glowing.

Me? I’m easy like Sunday morning after Christmas.
I’m thinking of you, love and longing for a big hug.

So here I am, beloved. Do bring it in.
Let’s slide to the kitchen for a lemonade & gin.

There’s left over liquor from last weekend.
Let’s, you and I, stay warm; let’s drink the gin.

Let’s flirt but not sin. Can we really?
Let’s act like teenagers; don’t give AF and be silly.

Give yourself the gift of life
And bury routine, mundanity and strife.

Are you in?
If so, raise your cup of jo’ or gin.

I toast to thee: A loving and prosperous end-of-the-year.
I’m Qui
and I’ve missed you. Please let these words kiss you, o’ dear.
