Let’s do it together…

No — I have not been to a massage parlor at the start of my day.
A Happy Beginning is me just waking to have my say.

Hello baby. How’s your morning starting?
It’s Saturday! Where are your skates? Rollers don’t do yawning.

ice skating-butt.gif

Put some HEART into it.

Let your skates be a metaphor for how you’re maneuvering through life.
Let Saturday be the day that you give your efforts a full hearted “try.”

Do so by committing.
As sure as I’m about this Griot spitting —
I am about giving my word and committing.

 

You be also.
Integrity is in that particular seed to sow.

Are you a sower?
If you are and of good seeds, then you’re also a grower

of relationships and partnerships.
You likely network well and pay for the sip.

Ah yes… I’m a social reader.
And I’m keen on recognizing and calling out a leader.

Good morning dear leader. Where whilst thou lead today?
I’m up early to chart my course; I’m up early to pray.

Shall you join me? I’d love to hear what you have to say.
This is A Happy Beginning for me, beside obvious “bed-romp play.”

You know what that is don’t you? I like bed-romping very much.
A Happy Beginning with long FX grinning – comes from human touch.

I’m a fan of it.
Communicating with you? I love it.

I’m always happy to do so,
I’m Qui
Interested in your morning glow.

Composing a script with you – is my favorite show.
The day is awake… you and I: let’s go!

Monday is a fine day to make a new decision
to do good to others; utilize vision.

Move in a positive direction. Do it for you.
Monday is a fine day to do what you want to.

I woke up early excited to do me.
Doing-for-self will always be key.

How’s your health and how’s your diet looking?
Are you still eating fast food or at home cooking?

Me? I can do better; let the scale be my proof,
so today for lunch we’ll all be doing JAMBA JUICE.

Oui-oui-oui,
lunch is on me!

Monday is a fine day to care for the lot of.
I’m Qui
feeling nice about thee. Let’s start this week off with a hug.

gothix _Hugs.gif
BRING IT IN
and don’t forget to repent for your sins.

God understands and loves us – it’s okay for us to talk to him too.
That’s really all He’s ever wanted from lil’ ol’ me and you.

Honestly, He’s always given us much, much more.
Monday is a fine day to put-in-on a dimensional high-score.

XO.

A Cup of Jo’ to GO…

In fitness, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, weightloss on December 19, 2018 at 8:21 am

The benefits of coffee include:

cup-of-jo.gif

It’s a good Wake Me Up!
– if the brew is strong that fills your cup.

An innard stimulator.
If you’re constipated – it’s a regulator.

You can sip it out of a cup
or you can insert it into your butt.

It’s really UP to you.
Coffee is what’s up; wake up – it’s true.

Me? What do I do?
I make a strong brew.

I like to thermos it
for an all-day fresh sip.

phaedra-rhoa-coffee-enema.gifI’m into wellness and internal detox.
I’m into coffee enemas and colonics rocks.

I liken A Cup of Jo to GO to being like Hip-Hop.
Once you get started… why would you stop?

Unless of course, you have the tendency to fill rushed.
Does drinking too much bean makes you a little anxious?

Well, love, you make the call.
I just know Jo yields a GO that is known to kill “the stall.”

So I sip it and I sniff it in between smelling MMJ strains
at the local dispensary located off of Main.

Coffee is dimensionally known to ‘do the dang thang,’
A Cup of Jo To GO helps me to focus, mane.

A sip or two is all that I need to get ready.
I was introduced to an awesome grind by Fab5Freddy.

Water weight? It’ll get you to pissin.’
Ease up on diuretic aids and get to sippin.’

I’m just saying and doing a little purpose-playing, yo!
I’m Qui
Good morning mid-week, can I get you A Cup of Jo to GO?

How do you like it, yo?

Don’t Look Now or DO

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, weightloss on October 22, 2018 at 4:46 am

george-clooney_double-take.gifIs it okay if suddenly I feel a little different and zen?
Yesterday I spent the day in the buff; feeling comfy in my skin.

It was good. Have you tried it?
Your birthday suit suits you. Why then do we hide it?

Have you seen your sides yet or do you call them love handles?
Are your pecks and breasts perky; body lit like a candle?

If you’re older than 27, I understand your lack of lit’ness.
Though spending your days buff will default prioritize your fitness.

Trust me on this.

Another benefit of wearing not too much 
is that your laundry load receives a significant cut.

Wear less – wash less; eat less – look better.
I’m Qui
Enjoying the Fall and without a sweater.

Good morning sweetheart. How are you looking?
If there’s too much “eave” around the middle –
modify what you’re cooking. crazy-smileyface

SOUTHERN CHARM – New Orleans

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on June 4, 2018 at 5:15 am

southern-charm_NewOrleans.jpg

Have you seen this new series and the reality cast of players?
Southern Charm NO is armed with chocolate eye-candy slayers.

I like the look very much and the story-line therein does not disappoint.
I was drawn into Season 1 of Southern Charm SC and this is an awesome Jr. anoint.

First up in conversation is la bella Tamica and el fine Barry .
They’re southern rooted, television-suited and social savvy.

 

The two are a power couple/married and they have a couple of kids.
I like their chemistry, an open-book lined with mystery;
even so, they have the most interesting betrothed bid.

Then there’s Tamica’s cousin Jared, and they aren’t kissing.
The gene of good looks is one in their DNA that isn’t missing.

Former NFL stock, Jeff Charleston and wife, Reagan are a real southern treat.
Reagan loves him honestly, and Jeff’s honesty is sweet.

 

She’s in school to be a lawyer and he’s just trying to grapple as best he can with life.
He finds depression lurks from past game hurts and he admits a post-traumatic strife.

I’m an NFL fan whose wavering on being a former fan of Dallas passion,
because I’m not feeling the recent no-kneel policy addendum action.

It’s a rich man’s game – I get it. Though, I thought WE were a team.
But the-rich-stick-with-the-rich and they’re threading the prez’s seam.

It’s not a good look for the NFL teams,
so I’ll watch more of the narrative series scene.

I’ll watch more reality television shows because they’re more real
than what the NFL is becoming while losing diverse-fan appeal.

It’s all the better for me; for in New Orleans, I am dandy
watching Southern Charm and the line of fit-men eye-candy.

southern-charm_jon-moodyJon. You’ve got to meet Jon; he’s the painting artist in the group.
He’s hella’ sexy and women flock to him like fine wine and stiletto boots.

He invites the male cast over to paint Greek-physique’d women in the nude.
They accept without knowing the event theme because Jon’s a real cool dude.

Surprised, each man was to participate in the task
of kicking it with Jon, the oils, the hanging racks, and ass.

I’m sure. Anywho, the look was a tasteful one.
The south is what it’s about and New Orleans is a whole lot of fun.

southern-charm_justin-reeseLast but not least, let’s talk about the good-looking Justin.
He’s the eligible bachelor with a legal successful factor;
the man Kelsey wants to make her husband.

I wish her luck.
Thier chemistry is good – it looks like love.

It’s been twelve months for these two on the Southern Charm scene.
For their 1st year anniversary, Jus’ gave Kels a necklace – not a ring.

Yeah, that sucked, but Kelsey took it in stride.
She’s quite focused at 30 on being a bride.

Kelsey isn’t in the headline picture, even though she’s a photographic flirt.
Beyond her obvious beauty, Kelsey’s a skilled nurse and was likely at work.

I like the cast dynamics. There are high-socials, a diverse skilled cast,  a lot of love and money,
I’m Qui
Enjoying the reflections of TV, it’s reality, the personalities, and the relatability, honey.

Good Morning Monday

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 21, 2018 at 5:52 am
Be inspired today. You can handle it: https://youtu.be/P8kgbpR1fSc

Ooo child, where have you been?
Everyday of the week tried to spike & peak
in headline news with a funky spin.

Empty headlines and fruitless grapevines serve the people none.
I used the weekend to ‘life sweeten;’ I insist on having more fun.

Please tell me that you, too are getting some, dear Monday?
You are a leader not a tweeter; you’re an opportunistic fun-day.

I’m up early and eager to participate
in what it is that you intend to give weigh to –
I’m awake and ready to play.

Good Morning Monday, what do you say?
Will we have another gumbo of headline news today?

Will more comparisons to Nixon creep up that will make the prez sick?
With hands the size of a normal man, the prez still resembles Tricky Dick.

Good Morning Monday, I love the essence of your day.
I am grateful for all who survived the shooting in Santa Fe.

Another high school shooting has come to pass; this time in Texas.
There are no interests in making sensible gun laws that connect us.

Monday Morning, you remain in the column of good.
Let those of us who pray, do so in the American hood

for clarity and protection.
Compassion for others may be the connection.

Though, if we don’t change gun laws more adolescent lives are doomed to be lost.
Perhaps gun violence keeps rising because many haven’t personally felt the cost.

PICTURE - framingIf this is true,
don’t let the next bullet hit you.

Whoever it is among us, blindly championing for guns,
let him heal himself when all that he has is full of holes and undone.

It has nothing to do with sin, they’re likely just an NRA friend – they’ll be fine.
But you and I have got to get our kids out of harms way and off of the front lines.

Monday, let’s start this day
realizing that we can’t continue this way.

Monday, let us start this day
with us holding hands in unison to pray.

What do you say, Monday? I’m happy to testify first.
With so much funkiness in the world, I believe it’s prayer that we thirst.

Good morning sweetheart, you’re the first; I love the strength of your shoulders,
I’m Qui
On the infrastructure of WE; Monday bares the strength of a thousand boulders.

WE can handle it.

Lets Go To DICK’S

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on February 28, 2018 at 7:32 am

to-catch-a-thief-car-driveLast night was highly strung so I slept in a little bit.
I woke up feeling refreshingly sporty; therefore, I’m going to DICK’S.

I may order a few other items online, perhaps I’ll Amazon Prime check.
On the other hand, they still support NRA TV… Shopping explorations! I’m looking for the next.

Good thing, for the sporty feeling me that I’m up for sewing money into society’s mix.
And with my choice of retail stores to begin with – I think I’ll goto DICK’S.

Surprised this morning to learn this that I’m a gun sporting girl?
Actually I’m a hunter of words, scripts, and supportive verbs; an advocate of peace in the world.

In light of February 14th at Marjorie Stoneman Douglass High,
Dicks is looking good; there’s plenty of room for other companies to try.

DICK’S SPORTING GOODS has decided to remove all assault rifles from their stock.
I’m not a big hunting fan, still, I am a sport who likes to shop.

There are dozens of other companies that have recoiled their NRA support.
Perhaps I will review that list and consider spending with them more.

It’s a beautiful day outside on this midweek hump,
but Florida buried their kids last week, so they are still in a slump.

Please send them vibes of strength, prayers to the father and yield support to their neighborhood.
Let’s show the children that we’re reliant and not down with gun violence — Let’s Go To DICK’S SPORTING GOODS.

PEACE and the DEUCE

In Communication, fitness, Networking, Self Improvement on January 17, 2018 at 10:47 am

peaceI’m currently feeling both: PEACE and the DEUCE. While driving away from my 7:15a.m. yoga class at the Tao Healing Center, at approximately 8:45a.m., I threw up the DEUCE as the view of the building became smaller in my rear view mirror. I was completely submerged in PEACE. I harnessed it in class. The class promptly started at 7:15 but I was about 10 minutes late. Tsk-Tsk and shame on me, right? Well, actually, I was bringing with me a guest and she was a bit delayed so, I kind-of made up for it. Kind-of. 🙂

We stretched, tapped & patted our bodies into an awakened state, our blood pumped more fluidly and circulated with more ease… we breathed in a space encompassed with the sounds of dole drums and hums. It was magical. I prayed, gave thanks (internally) and meditated in the space. I felt the energy of the man meditating in front of me. It was beautiful. I don’t know his name, but gosh I enjoyed his energy. He didn’t speak a word, he was a mere participant in class, but his energy? I enjoyed it so much, that I had to comment to him at the end of class. He received my appreciation. Namaste.

the-deuceThe instructor’s name of this morning’s class was Bretta; she’s also known as PEACE, (her spiritual name). I didn’t learn this information until the close of class. I should have known! That’s the exact feeling that washed over us during the 1.25-hours that we were in class with her.

This is how I began my day and pray that you began yours with PEACE, also. However, if a vibe of negativity is working on your nerves right now – I beseech thee, upon reading this to give it the DEUCE.

decorative-line-divider1

If you find an excess of politics divvying out energetic strife —
You could probably use a little bit of Tao Yoga in your life.

I know I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again:
meditation and prayer have got to be your best friends.

How could they not?
Hell is still too hot. 😉

You know what I’m saying? You get the point – I’m sure.
You, acknowledging your body may be part of the cure

to keeping ill vibes from infecting your spirit and soul.
Kinfolk, today’s Tao Yoga class was worth my weight in gold.

Wooo! It’s a great way to start a day, even though I was a few minutes late!
I’m Qui
and being late has never stopped me from piling good vibes onto my plate.

Though — it won’t happen again Tao Guide, Peace.  I bid tardiness the DEUCE!

College Christmas Break

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking on December 18, 2017 at 5:17 am

college-christmas-break.jpgI’m on it and I’m happy.
I pray it drags out and is not snappy.

I bought a new sleep number bed to help me sleep
because when I commit to school – you know I go deep.

I can’t read a book and not follow every foot note
of reference material that the co-author wrote.

You know when it comes to consuming knowledge – I just can’t resist.
I’m hard on research – like the knuckles of a tight fist.

This College Christmas Break will allow me indeed
to take off my glasses and ease up on “the read.”

I’m grateful for the day. I’m grateful for you.
I’m grateful for the season and the giving that we do.

Here it is Monday and we’re only 7-days out from December 25th,
I’m Qui
Just up from my number of sleep. This College Christmas Break biz is the jiz.

Tuned-In to Thursday

Mindful Living

Good morning sweetheart. Good morning to you.
You’ve certainly crossed my mind a time or two.

So much so, that I’m hitting you up
to say “I missed your touch on yesterdays hump.”

img_7352-1

Let’s hug, cheek-kiss and do the bump.
I’m pretty hype this morning – up shaking my rump.

I’m doing aerobics in the cut, the week has been good.
To write is my testimony. I’m telling it in your hood.

I appreciate you for taking the time to stop by and read it.
And if you’re living mindful– I’m extolled that you’d heed it.

As you live mindful on all fronts, your actions will “seed it.”
The hungry eat what you serve. Go ahead and feed it.

Shovel out the love, the compassion and understanding that you have.
If bold should test you – it could never arrest you,
so remain positive and laugh.

Tuned-In to Thursday leads way to be thoughtful.
To miss an opportunity to think of someone else should feel awful.

Perhaps your response to me would be, “Folks aren’t thoughtful on my behalf!”
I’d respond, “Change starts with you, look through those folks and just laugh.”

You have to — that is if you want to realize your God-truths.
The God in you does not lie in treating others as they treat you.

Think it through on this Thursday. Mindful thinking, do tune in.
You’ll find you are your biggest hurdle and likewise, your biggest friend.

Resist all low frequencies. Resist the urge to pile on.
I’m Qui
Tuned-In to Thursday and praying you to be strong.

Respecting others despite their actions – on no level, is wrong.
Give it whirl. It may be rough – persevere. I believe it can catch on.
