Your touch…

Think of life as a pizza and make it like you like it.
Coffee is basically black though Bailey’s will always spike it.

Whatever works for you…

I’m just saying life is at hand please live it out loud.
Appreciate yourself for standing out from the crowd.

You are quite unique and of you, God is quite fond.
You rarely look at what is; you innately look beyond.

Pizza is what you make of it and I’ve been watching you make yours.
I chronicle about you every-other-day; you are quite the combo score.

Thanks for coming through. For your life contributions – I thank you even more,
I’m Qui
Good afternoon to thee. Your combo chemistry is not ever a bore. I stand to bear witness to your comprehensive soar.

Perspective:

Your pizza looks good and your coffee is strong.

When I need to find out what “the people” are saying, I find a good forum and I park it. Actually I seek out several forums; I prefer to operate in a well-informed frame, so sites like Quora, Medium, and Reddit yield me the most.

Do you forum? Do you have something to say? Do you have a question to ask? Todays society is a curious one. Everyone has a question about humanity: Who are we? Who are you? and What do you want from me? are all valid questions that pop up often everyday in a myriad of circumstances and conversations.

Would you like to think-tank-it out? Interested in kicking good conversation back and forth to make good sense out of it? Me, too and I’ve been waiting on you. I am curious on so many topics. Please help me out:

Curious about:

  • The Namesake of Yellow — It has influenced rappers: YelloPain and Yella Beezy; both artists tend to “the lobes.”
    Yella Beezy introduces us to dimensional hoods and Pain schools us on WHEN and HOW TO VOTE. What do you know?
  • What do you think about the topics that the two of them hone; if you even give a damn?
    There’s also community topics formed as spur -rockets — like your thoughts on Stacy Abrams. What do you know?
  • There’s a discussion plucked from Quora.com that’s pretty bleak but real —
    the question posted in Qui forum is “can children can be evil?

What do you think? You can ask the creator of the topic.
It’s about him — so I know that he can cop it.

On this hump day, the hill is pretty pointed –
the flexible bend easy; the curious are double jointed.

QuiWho and Qui-Me are of the same; Qui anointed.
I like the head & the tail, let options win-out this coin flip.

Good morning beloved, what pends inside of the inquisition chamber for thee?

BRACED

In education, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on June 22, 2020 at 7:46 am

 

hug-yourself

Orthodontics is my choice of brace.

I have been “holding it together” for the last 26 months non-stop!
I removed my 2 bicuspids to help out; though at ease — I am not.

Season have changed two times over, from cooler weather to hot —
and I remain in a Griot frame; my ortho treatment is like Hip Hop.

Ligating Braces don’t stop; the process is a revolving one; a song.
I had the choice to break my jaw bones, or commit to braces; go long.

I chose to “go long;” I’m a quarterback on this pass.
However proper my choice, these wires are on my…. ASK

me one thing that I would change if I could?
I’d have researched WHY George Washington’s teeth were made of wood?

I’m sure his manufactured dental set was ‘the best’ in his day/in his hood.
But to chew steak thoroughly — his teeth were probably of no good.

This I’ve always understood, but why have wooden teeth in George’s day?
No one has confirmed his dental churns; though I think he had issues with his TMJ.

I know that I do —
because Carne Asade is difficult chew,

but I get it in.
TMJD is just not my friend.

TMJD is preventable and I am in the process of reverse.
For as much as it pains me to eat — I still have girth.

What good is a TMJ worth, if in fact,
I can’t eat salads and the chips will yield fat?

Why not eat those delicious salads – you ask, after all they are a treat?
My bite is mismatched and is no good for chewing-up green leaves.

Unfortunately,
few leaves ever meet
between my teeth.

Roughage just isn’t big enough.
Chips and cookies yield more bulk

in my mouth.
They also yield to “biological fat pockets” from the south.

I’m 26-months in and braced well, though my teeth are still moving.
Drinking water is a sensitive subject for me; too hot or cold induces drooling.

screaming-lady

Its just room-temperature water, tho…

Drinking cold water feels comparable to biting into ice cream.
But I’m not eating ice cream, I’m just thirsty and restraining a scream.

I’m good. I’m good. My orthodontic work is for a very good cause.
I’m trying to fix the bite of my teeth; the undertaking requires much gall.

I’ve got the gall. I’ve also got strength and on this Monday morning I am thrilled to have you.
I’m Qui
Good morning kinfolk, BRACE yourself for a warmer vibe to come through.

You may not be concerned about your teeth,
but Summer came in the other day and she’s packing heat.

As for me and my teeth… What ever will we do today?
I will hit the home-gym to warm-up & hem the fascia around my TMJ.
I’ll also have several other gadgets on hand to put into play:

Cervical Traction Device for TMJ

I place it on the floor, lay my neck on it and zone out/fall asleep.

RAD Point Release Kit-Myofascial Release Tool Kit

I use the balls to massage my back, neck, shoulders and hands. Click here to see how.

USB Heated Neck Wrap for Pain Relief

Once I’m done releasing myofascial knots in my neck and shoulder I relax it with a heating pad that has auto shut-off in 30 minutes.

WHAT

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on June 17, 2020 at 5:15 am

askingGood morning beloved, WHAT have you got planned for the day?
Did you sleep well last night or was your sleep just okay?

When you awoke this morning what was the first thing you had to say?
Did you kneel or sit upright and talk to God? It’s the way I start every day.

However, you start yours, I’m sure that it’s great.
Just be sure to affirm-ate. Okay?

Encourage thyself daily, for it is key
if you intend to positively contribute to humanity.

Affirmations are “the joint!” You have got to believe in you more.
Faith is what you need to increase your law of attraction score.

Believe in yourself, your driven purpose and what God has in store for you.
Hop up on this Hump Day and open your heart to love more of life and truth.

You deserve it. Goodness and mercy is what you were made for,
I’m Qui
“the WHAT” really matters. What is it that you desire all the more?

Pre-visualize WHAT it is; see it in your minds eye.
• The organize your thoughts on how to achieve it; manifest.

Does manifesting it mean physical labor on your part?
Nothing worth having is easy at all; thus, your cue to insert heart.

WHAT do you want? I want that for you, too.
Affirm-ate, meditate, pray and work towards it, boo.

I choose to vibrate higher; it’s always good to see you.
Ooo.

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 27, 2020 at 8:21 am

Bey Slay.gif

Hey, hey, hey!” Sounding like Rodg’s friend Dwayne,
What’s Happening” with you; how’s the view in your lane?

Me? I’m awake and up for goodgame.
Me? I’m the vehicle in the creative lane.

You? You’ve been on my mind for quite some time now;
different reasons ‘why‘ and dimensions on the ‘how.’

Believe me now, when I say that I’m enjoying the climb
that has delivered me to this day; my creative grind.

I’m happy y’all.
In a world of uncertainty, I have the gall.
I wish happiness for us all.
Flex your positive gall.

It’s Hibbity Hump Day, which sounds a lot like “hibbity hop.”
Saying “hibbity hop” reminds me of The Sugar Hill Gang – Hip Hop don’t stop.

Something like The HUSTLER’S CONVENTION, I’m a one-stop Griot shop.
I’m something like Lightnin’ Rod; The HC is not a publication that you can cop

but you can stay tuned to multiple flows like my own, for most Griotte’s are quite steady.
We are storytellers of the day born. I learned as much from Fab5Freddy.

I forget not, much. I am intrigued by various moves made.
I chronicle the view in rhyme. Griot is my mode of Slay.
Hey.

Hey-hey-hey!” I’m quoting Dwayne Nelson again,
I’m Qui
atop of this hump glad to be purveying and conveying What’s Happening.

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.
Come with. This vantage view is better with a friend.

Or a LOVEBIRD:

Addle

Infographic by Thesaurus Plus

Just because you misplaced your keys 3 times in the same hour,
don’t let it turn your good mood to sour.

Let up on watching television and play more brain games.
The mind is great and beautiful; a terrible thing to waste.

So, don’t be a waste. I’ll add to that and ever so blunt,
Appearing to be addle – is a label that you don’t want.

No siree. Not you. Not me.
Ain’t nobody ever in history
raised their hand and said “Addle? Yeah. That’s me!”
Not one person; not one – nary.

Today is WORD PLAY WEDNESDAY and I wanted to introduce a new word.
According to world news on our country’s views, “addle” is our verb.

Yep. It seems to be word; an adjective sum for our lack.
I just thought I’d let you know, “Yes. Folks are talking behind our back.” :/

But you knew that. No need to conjure up a new fuss.
Remember I mentioned a few weeks back that we may be on the shorter bus.

Remember? Naw. That wasn’t back in November; that was in March.
Yeah, we meant to be great; we meant to be smart.

It’s okay America. We will eventually pull through.
There’s a general election that requires our due.

The election is in November.
Set an alarm for it – so that you remember.

Vote by mail-in ballot if you can because COVID will still be around.
If you cannot just wear PPE to poll-vote in town.

This election will prove to be profound and fundamental to what life will look like;
lest we remain in the feeble lane while all the other countries shape global life.

We got this! Voting is your privilege – it is being challenged and battled.
I pray that we all vote clearly; lest we continue to collectively look addle.

The word “addle” can be used as an adjective or a verb,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Please do not forget this word:

addle

Thank You

For doing all that you do — please take a bow.

To all doctors, health care workers and nurses,
good samaritans who have donated from their purses,

to the bus drivers, truckers and train operators
to the grocery workers, maintenance techs and innovators,

THANK YOU.

For stepping up to help us all through.
In pressing times character is true

We see food handlers, too – yielding service and showing little fright,
so we stand outside (around the world) to solute you every night.

I’ve no balcony to herald from – still I insist on being included, yo,
so at 7pm I sing a THANK YOU hymn from my 2nd story window.

THANK YOU

so very, very much.
Life would have little compassion without your touch, ‘

Today is hump day and I’m off to film a scene,
rest assure at 7pm I’ll be back in my window to sing:

“THANK YOU! | Thank you. | Thanks. | You Rock!
Do your thang. Please don’t stop.
I pray that you remain well – that  cv can’t cop!”

Keep your head up, tell & listen to jokes; laugh hard at corn-ball zingers,
I’m Qui
Helping folks cover their mouths. Inspired by you, I bought a SINGER.

We’re all doing the best that we can
to help ourselves and our fellow man.

So, then this is For YOU, too:
THANK YOU.

PRESS PLAY and Give your self a hand-clap right away.

REPEAT.

FUNDY

In Comedy, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on May 11, 2020 at 9:02 am

You know what I think fun is? Maybe you don’t.
Though if you don’t ask me, then you won’t,

so I’d like to share with you my thoughts
on fun under the sun that can’t be bought

and has proven over time to de-bump the bumpy.
This act, dear kinfolk, is what I call a FUNDY.

It can happen on a Monday but most often towards the weekend.
Because we all know “monotony” can’t survive when you’re among friends

and so, the weekend slots have a history of being a fun day.
But that’s no reason to not try “the feeling” on a Monday.

Monday’s fun doesn’t spell out like the weekends choice.
Monday’s fun uses an insiders voice….

of wisdom.
Are you familiar with the works of Shirley Chisholm?

If you are familiar then you may be thinking, “right on,” or “here we go,”
because Mrs. Chisholm was about FUNDY in public service, yo.

The road she travelled was much like our own
fun likely started tapering off as she got grown,

because we all know that “grown people don’t play,”
Mrs. Chisholm found gamification in leading the way.

Make “being well informed and staying on your toesinto a game.
One that you take pride in carrying out with no shame.

Social lockdown can cause your social calendar to look funky,
so replace that funk-block with some in-house FUNDY.

Take the day by the rays and forge the universe with your desire.
It would help if you had on board a little Shirley Chisholm fire.

Never mind that she was a Sagittarius; a Fire Sign up in neigh –
she mastered socio-economics in The House per the New York way.

The good news is we don’t all have to be fire signs to rile up a difference.
Use your air, earth and water chemistry to course correct our systemics.

All that is required for us to win this,
is you committing your best in it.
All truth, please; no gimmick.
Make every Monday a FUNDY – then go with it!

Insist the universe yield towards our way or else
the people may stop stacking capitalist wealth.

I mean, let’s be real… after all economics is just a game —
and the fact that it is spread out over 2% of our nation is a shame.

The Stock Market?
My response is: Kick rocks, kid. 😛

It ain’t really working;
businesses are bleeding and hurting

of all sizes, campuses and halls.
They cannot course correct without us, y’all.

They need us to need them; so they yield no support. Rt Pt Arrow “Get back to work!”
Trust, if you say “I quit,” Lft Pt Arrowyou won’t be alone and corporations will hurt.

Your employer will feel it, too.
They aren’t working ON SITE; they want you to.

You do still have to pay the rent, so what will you do?
Child, tell God about it then focus your sights on YOU.

Focus on your abs and laugh more. What type of jokes do you find funny?
Really? That’s cool. Me, too. Use jokes to make everyday a FUNDY.


.
Don’t even get me started on cardio; you know that I need to workout,
the good news is you can do it in or out of bed! Fundy is what it’s all about.

Perception makes the course correction. Gamification provides the way,
I’m Qui
still loving on thee, like a maternal she – as we play out this Monday.

Nope. Today will not be funky
because YOU insist on making it a FUNDY.

Do it.
