Getting Serious. Are we?

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News on May 9, 2019 at 5:34 am

Vin Diesel_Thandie Newtgon.gifAre we finally getting serious about what’s before us, o’ kinfolk?
Are we willing to look at ourselves and what was exactly behind our vote?

Was it the will of the American people or another actor with a self-serving sub storyline?
It doesn’t matter, the Constitution is our fundamental batter and it shan’t be tainted with old wine.

In my heart, I believe in Congress and pray that our union will be fine.
America is the kid with the best -ish. what’s with the old wine?

Ain’t nobody too drunk to read a report or a book with more than 400 pages.
Careful not to move too quick, there are checks, constitutional balances, and stages.

Chairman Nadler said we are in a Constitutional crisis and no one was surprised.
We are a people by the people and by our votes, we can set things right.

I’m not loyal to any party on the left or to the right – I am a lover of you.
I believe that our collective unity will be the strength that gets us through.

Love is the super glue.

I want our tomorrow to be okay.
I want our children to live like we did; full of vibrancy and play.

We can do this if we choose to stay the founding fathers’ course.
We can walk and chew gum – let’s heal the Earth and cool her core.

Let’s evolve to being a more compassionate sport. I know what you must be thinking,
that I’m a little high in my spirits because “the dumb train” is sinking.

No. I’m really not. But to say that I don’t feel the excitement in the air —
is to be lying to you. I feel a feeling of “We’re almost there…”

Broaching the climatic point where we find out many truths
that just may pan out to look like the discourse wasn’t started by me or you.

When provoked – our first nature to push back.
A third party injected hostility and the country’s unity showed a crack.
I’m not too concerned with that. We’ve been divided before  — we’ll get it back.

Congress will do its job before citizens, by and large, grow delirious.
I’m just glad that we can all agree, it is indeed time to get serious.

Good morning sweetheart and how do you do?
I’m Qui
it’s Thursday morning and I’m still into you.

Are you ready?

Let’s DO IT.

The Princess, The Pea: QUANTUM PHYSICS, you and me

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 3, 2019 at 7:24 am

the-princess-and-the-pea.jpgOh yes, if there is a loose piece of lent in my sock – I will feel it.
If there’s a boo-boo that’s not progressing too well, I’m tuned-up to heal it.

I’m not a doctor nor yet a scientist, just curiously Qui.
But for the sensitivity of my senses, you may call me The Princess with The Pea.

I feel it all. Are you happy? Me too.
I emit colors in words, deeds and the actions that I do.
When you least expect it, I truly feel you.

I always wondered how such a connection could be?
I’m spiritually connected to you and you to me.

Together, we should join energies and harvest big love.
Quantum Physics reminds me that we’re in a Milky Way hug
nestled in the arms of stellar matter and such…
Together,  we should join energies and harvest big love.

Quantum Physics includes the universe and the evolution of stars.
It’ll put you in perspective as to how big you really are.

You’re not so big at all and your energy is no bigger than the dust
that is collected and perfected in the stellar arms that we trust.

There are about 50 additional galaxies  near us in this Milky Way crest
reminding me that I should remain unbiased on which star is the best.

The sun is a middle-aged star in the prime of her life,
she’s not too close or too hot to yield us a divine light.

I call light divine because when you really give it thought
the sun functions under no assumptions that it has been purchased or bought.

It shines on command
per the Creator’s plans.

The Creator’s hands… oh! they are much bigger than yours.
You’ve not made a thing in this world where greater pride should soar.

We are so little.
We’re in the prime of Earth, somewhere in her middle.

The sun is a star and stars go through completed stages of life.
To be frank with you fam, we need to learn how to travel by light.

The galaxy is big and our sun is an averaged sized star.
Our black hole is inactive but what are we really on par

for?
Our energy on Earth is on a collision course.

Have you had a chance to study Quantum Physics? It supersedes understanding chess.
diamond shape.jpgThe world and its wars never bothered me, I’m concerned about the Milky Way crest.

She is beautiful and she is bigger than us.
We are Earthians and are capable of love.
We are beings who need more than a hug.
Take a look like Galileo — and into the quantum do thrust.

Global warming is real and every star has its stages of life.
Sure the Earth is mid-cycle, but that doesn’t mean live trife.

Plastic products: you were a take-out hit but now it’s inevitable that you be banned.
God gave us a fruitful Earth and we’re trashing the land with convenience by our own hands.

We shan’t.
Doing so throws this Princess into a rant.

There are quite a few Pea’s that we need to deal with.
You don’t want the legacy of humanity to cease to exist.

To live is to participate in more than a convenient drive by.
Have you seen the universe? It’s amazing that we have this life.

Let’s do something positive with it.
Conjur up some praise and let God hear it.

You’re comfy in your borough and suburb; for tomorrow, you don’t fear it.
Though if it’s the Milky Way’s black hole vs. Earth: we’re all ended.

See. It’s little facts like that, that mounts a pea in my sheets,
I’m Qui
a curious she; I’m interested in understanding more about “QP.”

Good morning fam, the world is a stellar jam and I’m with it.
Live a good life because the universe is alright –
and thank God for the knowledge of Quantum PHYSICS.

First Day – THURSDAY

independent thinkerDo something different with your life.
If things are going wrong – make them right.

If you haven’t been praying and meditating, start today.
If you’re already on the right path, continue on your way.

Today is the day that you play with the resources in the palm on your hands.
Today you are the Speakerboxx ready to amplify a lovely plan:
.

What is it? Go get it. What in the world do you want?
The universe is listening; don’t be a procrastinating haunt.

Goodness is yours. It’s squarely in your lap.
Wake up and seize it – resist the desire to nap.

Relax today in your posture, in your thoughts, and in your heart.
Let anxieties fall to the wayside, today is an opportunistic start.

Are you ready? Do you have your wits about you? How about your talent/craft?

in love with scripting the view; there’s structure in my lab

MONDAY’S PROMPT

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, Self Improvement, Video on April 29, 2019 at 6:43 am

Good morning Monday. Where have you been girl?
There’s so many vibrations that are moving the world.

There’s Beyonce’s new song, “BEFORE I LET GO,”
and Taylor Swifts “ME” video hit the air like WOAH!

In 24-hours Swift’s new vid has been seen more than 45 million times!
Taylors view balled and doled basketball to the side.

That’s what’s up.
Monday is an exciting weekday cut.

I prayed and I’m up; today I roam this Cali space.
I’m out here on assignment – I do love this place.

The royal service at The Westin is something I could get used to.
I’m the writer peeping their stylo — I love the high-rise view.

Good morning, good morning, good morning to you!
I’m feeling refreshed – so how do you do?

There’s a lot of creativity in the air this morn
dawning after Bey and Swift‘s new babies were born.

I’ve slept like a baby in this penthouse suite.
It’s a great escape from Texas and Arizona’s heat.

Though without you, I am hardly me –
I pray for guidance from the heavenly

Father.
So, don’t bother

chiming in with Earth-leaning advice
about where women should go or do with our lives.

Pardon our force of FORMATION; we’re in assembly.
Bey, Taylor, Shondra and Ava are all sisters to me.

We are like that AVENGERS scene in END GAME when -ish got real
and the women relieved the men to wipe up the battlefield.

Did you see it? It was great.
Avengers put TRANSITIONS on our plate.

Things are changing in the AVENGER dynamic.
Captain A passed off his shield – he did hand it

to another.
Believe or not, t’was passed to a brother.

Hm? The depth of the writing
was real-world-metaphore and exciting.

America needs saving and we all can help.
The Captain may be retiring for America’s health.

She needs help from all of her occupants, especially the women.
America is in trouble but not out of the count to keep winnin.’

Our unity is what bears all and keeps our vibe in mode “grinning.”
Avengers END GAME was about sustaining the winning.

Are you in?
It’s MONDAY morning and we can begin again.
Are you in?
#PROMPT

Let’s help each other and God will help us all.

a woman about things in this Cali scene. EXPAND YOUR FORCES if you have the gall.

There’s no reason on earth for mass unity to stall.

Neal Degrasse Tyson: not a feeling expert.

What is this feeling that I’m feeling?
Butterflies from within… feels quite healing.

I’m happy, y’all.
My feet hit this ground this morning with no stall.
I’m not kiddingI’m happy yall.

So, what’s on your agenda and what are ya’ doin?
Are you subject to a come-up today or a screwin?’

Oh, come now, you can tell me.
Keeping it real has always been key.

I hope that being “subjected to a screwin,’ isn’t pending in your bag.
Stand atop of this hump and be strong with no sag

and tell the universe that your tools are skill specific.
When work shows up at your door never hesitate to get with it.

You got that?
You’re the captain; wear the hat.

You know that slacking is out of fashion.
The world wants to see you in your passion.

Show ’em.
Whip-it-up, dazzle and glow ’em.

Today is a day of opportunity and promise;
a good day to gather with friends, pita bread, and hummus.

You in?
Let’s script-read the eve away with red wine, rum. and gin.
You in?

Today will prove to be good for us all.
My feet hit the ground this morning with no stall.
I’m truly good y’all.

I’m droppin’ in to leave this note for you
because even tho — I’m not NEWS PERUSING, yo
I’m very much into you.

I am.
News or not, you’re the green eggs to my ham,

Gimme Some

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on April 19, 2019 at 5:00 am

Give me some, because this -ish is all the way live.
I’ll take the full report and Five on the Black Hand Side:


.
Are you down to ride? Yesterday’s CD ROM was hot.
Mueller’s report is a bulky sport and it don’t stop.

Sounds like lyrics made for Hip Hop. Feels like we’re experiencing a growth spurt;
though after the report was made public it’s likely the CIC’s stomach hurt.

The heat is up and is duly on the back of some folks neck.
The Mueller report is alive; the administration is wrecked.

There were a bunch of Oh’s pointing to an X; lets just call the x variable Defendant One.
Gimme Some when the gander is done – I’m off to have a weekend of yum!

Bummed is what the news out of Washington, DC had been of late;
things started to shake last night and tomorrow is 420 Day.
Hip-hip hooray!

Exhale long.
Let your hair down; let nothing be wrong.

Drop the stress as common unity increases.
Tell your stressed out comrade to not to fall to pieces:

.

Today feels like it’s going to produce words that should be composed into a song.
Kinfolk, I’m just happy and pray that we can all prosper and get along.

I prayed that for yesterday, today and I’ve already prayed it for tomorrow.
I really hope the light is truly in view and behind us is the bulk of sorrow.

New Peruse? “Whatchu’ talkin’ about  Willis?” I ain’t been in the mood.
It’s hard on a Griot to keep singing the blues about a variable fool.

Lord help us all. Let us approach this day expecting a little fun.
I’m Qui
Dropping by to love on thee and to reciprocation I say, “Gimme Some.”

LIFTED

Lifted_4_17_2019.gif.

It’s that time again, (if not for all, at least) for many
that ye shall get elevated on this years 4/20.

The weekend is coming and it will bring with —
several ways that you can score a pretty good lift.

Let’s start with Fab5Freddy; he’s a documenting lass —
he’s dropping knowledge and a cough via Netflix’s GREENER GRASS:

.

Oh yes! It’s going down at many passable rounds — in just a few short days.
There’ll be Ice Cream Cake and Lemon Bubble strains for Saturday’s head haze.

That’s right, do partake by taking a documented deep breath
and you can bet your banana leaf ‘s best that Snoop will be a guest.

Method Man and Red Man are still rolling the directory page;
HOW HIGH 2 is a danky-dew debuting on an MTV stage.

Saturday is the date. Ol’ 420 was made to blaze.
In 72-hours you can pick your reel hay.

Or you can smoke them all – just set your DVR today,
and do what you need to do to reserve the weekend-spin for play.

Play and watch! Watch and play!
I’m Qui
Atop of day 3 — looking 420’s way.

Hey-Hay!

 

DVR Spar

OWN NETWORK_DvrSpar.JPG

THE CHI is back. I am still digging and feelin’ ’em.
Ax and Chuck Rhoades are back – I’m back into BILLIONS.

My DVR setup is filled with explosive narrative writes
that have attention-span holders to keep me up at night.

OFF CAMERA WITH SAM JONES is where I spend my lunch hour.
Have you seen his insightful guests? All fresh and no sour.

The Sam Jones production yields power and introductions.
I’ve got class & lab to craft-me-fab and tailor my productive functions.

I’ve got gumption! I’m going for it.
And innovative script? I’m known to score it.

It’s good to go on a creating binge
knowing there are streamers that will house them in the end.

While that’s good news, it’ll make you no star,
Productions are complete just to compete in a DVR spar.

Satellite TV, network TV, and streaming networks
are what comes to mind during a script writing growth-spurt.

So very focused – I am…
I’ve dreams to sit with ol’ Sam.

Though today I am happy to be doing lab in Science.
My GPA is strong. I’m course curriculum compliant.

color temperature_equals emotions.gifI’m studying color contrasts and what lighting temps do to a scene.
I’m honing in on how to visually make you laugh and cry at a thing.

Oh yes, fam. Science lives inside of Art.
Soap Operas own the sport of emotional war.

Give it up to The Young and The Restless,
tho I think OWN Network is in the lead at doing it best.

I’m watching quite a bit – I’m trying to see it all.
I must admit I rarely quit but pass out/nocturnal stall.

Good stuff y’all. Are you watching any show more than you watch the news?
I’m Qui
Into thee and hard on my studies to craft much fresher views.

I don’t mind the news but I’m am into a much more enlightened you.

Monday, Monday you must be a fun day.
I need you to be you  — o’ beloved follower of Sunday.

I’m leaning like Franky and clearing my throat to sing
‘Luck be a Monday’ – she likes me… I think.

.

If I were D’Angelo then Monday would be
that thing that I sing about — Monday’s are key:

.

Let’s rise up early and play wildly in the bed.
Before getting to work let our inner child be fed.

Monday, Monday be a fun day — for work will find us soon.
Even Kirstjen Nielson insists on fun; she’ll be packing her office by noon.

I don’t blame her. She is just like you, me, and John Kelly;
she just wants to be on the playground with her mind sound by 3.

early-morning-pajama_Qui

Start early…

Don’t ever let the day get too late…
Do not pass Monday without a little play.

Hip-hip-hooray to KJ. heart-thumbnail ‘I always knew that you could do better.
Go on home and relax your bones, take off that binding sweater.

Find the chocolate and the vodka…and figure a cocktail out.’
Me? I’m up early feeling girly, about to get dressed and move about.

I’m meeting with productive friends – we think tank over cups of joe.
We also pray, take time to play, and encourage folk on their to and fro.

I’m happy today and before I get out of bed
I want my Monday to be a lady… I’ve got a melody in my head.

Monday fun day, I know you to be sweet,

Good morning to thee, I’ll take the joe and forfeit the tea.

LIGHTS, CAMERA…

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Technology on April 3, 2019 at 1:56 pm

light_scienceI am enjoying the effort that I am putting into understanding and comprehending the menu of motion picture lights and their many, many uses. I have in my possession several types of lighting kits to use on my shoots:  2 of them use 65-watt fluorescent bulbs and the third one is a set of LED power plate heads on stands. Between the 3 lighting kits that I have, there are several softboxes, key lights, fill lights,  a backlight, and several stands to perch them on. I even have a light rig that yields an awesome rim light and makes my small sets look extra cool while rendering my subjects pleasantly visible.

I am nearing the last 12-month mark of my collegiate journey and lighting is crucial at this stage if I am to ‘see my way clear.’ I’m relentless on learning how to.

filmstrip_divider

I’ve got my LIGHTS and my CAMERA, now I just need that LIGHT action!
I’m a student of cinematography –  a well-lit scene is my passion.

I’ve been doing a little research as I attempt to recreate the ambiance and feel
of a warm and nurturing scene with a social and eventful appeal,

and I find a place in France; the company bio did excite me to swoon,
they are Airstar Lights – the folks who make light filled balloons.

Yes, I am smitten with lighting and am encouraged to learn more so that I may utilize.
