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.

No Weak End Here

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on September 4, 2020 at 7:56 am

Good morning, good morning, good morning to you. Friday is up for the taking. What do you want to do?

Have you been enjoying the presidential candidates in their new styles of campaigns? November is less than 60-days away; patriotic votes will reign.

The contrast between the two candidates is so very stark. One displays a bleak reality and the other one exhibits hope and heart.

It’s good to have choices; please do stay informed — of who’s saying what, shooting from hip or gutdecipher the intent of charm.

Polls roll in & polls roll out; some are tight and some are wacky.
I should know, I watch a show that rosters Steve Kornacki.

Polls don’t voice the sum of our whole, they are just insight. I watch lightly, and pray mightily: “God please make America alright.”

I watched the film HARRIET last night and I was blown away. Cynthia Erivo is everything, yo! Dare I say that she is one of the greats?

Have you seen her work in The OUTSIDER? Her flex of skill has an Edward Norton appeal; I know few who are brighter.

Tom Hanks is one of the few who submerges himself in a script. Cynthia Erivo is neck and neck; she breathes every moment real.

She also starred in Bad Times at The El Royale. Artists who eat, sleep, and birth script deep are craftsmen I call pals.

Cynthia’s capacity marks her “rare biz.” Every piece that she’s in is a hit. Who in the world is her agent? Kudos to Cynthia’s career dimensions.

I’ve also been watching a great deal of Disney Plus. The BLACK IS KING album is worth all of the fuss. Nourishment by Beyonce is a mass must;

she sings parallels and makes generational relations. Her video FORMATION should be the voting theme across the nation.

Are you ready? I sure am. The weekend is at hand.
I’m Qui

Jester or Majestic

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Video on August 28, 2020 at 12:04 am

Q: What is a jester?

A: A good understanding’s arrester.

Self hate and ill understandings invoke sore and fester. Civility is in a fight and the jester yells, “arrest her!”

Qui

Pay no mind to the jester. He does not understand that to wear such a suit is to be dressed by another man.

A fashion not tailored for the backside of his own hands. Oh man, oh, man. There’s no favor in being bland.

Whatever you do — don’t don a jester’s suit.

Use your energy and platform to help folks stay alive. Respect begets respect – via compassion, we all can thrive.

I know that you know who you are. You used to be folks’ favorite star.

Love? We still have it, so please search your heart. Your skill is a hoot; versed in scripted parts.

You used to make us laugh but these times require no “jest it.” You are bigger by dimensions but framing-up far less than majestic.

Momma always says “if you don’t have anything good to say – then don’t say nothing at all.“ I like to key-key & ha-ha, but not as much as I love to stand tall.

BAMBOOZLED – 2000| By: Spike Lee

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on July 15, 2020 at 5:30 am

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.

A Fan of HANNA

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, TV Shows, Video on July 13, 2020 at 4:13 am


.
Season 1 boasts Joel Kinnaman as Erik with Esme Creed-Miles as HANNA; they are running thangs.
Season 2, in the era of Erik AD boasts Mireille Enos as Marissa to bare the brunt of the game.

Hanna-Season1-Cast

There’s a lot of pain in every fight scene; the fight choreography is the shiz-nit.
Hanna stays true to reap no rue; bar none, she’s the epitome of a “soldier’s spirit.”

Amazon Prime is responsible for this series and David Farr is an  amazing series writer.
I’m the woman who ran through seasons 1 and 2; I am the poetic piper
and I like her.

The Hanna series is authentic – the cast chemistry pulls the composition tightly together.
I saw HANNA – the film in 2011 and resisted the idea of a series heaven
then David scripted a triple 7.

1Hanna-Season2-Cast

Are you watching?
I pray a season 3 is in the works for we; I’m baited for the clocking.

As for the video atop, the ANTI LULLABY piece —
it’s the series’ theme song; a Karen O release.

It’s sweet, it’s deep and plays on repeat; it’s messaging strength is strong.
It conveys emotion and tugs at devotion; perhaps another season will come along?

Are you watching the series that is the film namesake of HANNA?
I’m Qui
keeping score and wanting more. I am duly twice a fan of:

I miss Gene Wilder and the original Willy Wonka character. The film debuted in 1971, which happens to be the year that I was born; just a couple of years behind the Summer of ’69 – an era of transcension, vibrations, love, color, wonderment and possibility. Personally, I think today we are in a parallel time to the Summer of 69.

We don’t need to do a massive concert about unity and we don’t need to pass the weed, (well, it probably wouldn’t hurt), we just need to continue to lock arms together for unity across the global community. I understand that life is relentless, yet and still – “collectively, we’ve got this.” Let’s stay fueled up on imagination and determination. It matters. Einstein left word about it and Willy Wonka sang about it. Remember?

Would you be so kind as to you access your imagination lens and view tomorrow with me:

[Lyrics]

Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three.
Come with me and you’ll be
in a world of pure imagination.
Take a look and you’ll see
Into your imagination.

We’ll begin with a spin
traveling in the world of my creation
What we’ll see will defy explanation.

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it.
Want to change the world?
There’s nothing to it.

There is no life I know
to compare with pure imagination
Living there you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be.

If you want to view paradise
simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it.
Want to change the world?
There’s nothing to it.

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be.

[End Lyrics]

And this is where I live; in a world of pure imagination.
I’m always glad to have you along to kick inferring conversation.

I appreciate you for stopping by everyday
to hear what lil ol’ Qui has to Griot say.

It’s okay if you choose to share it with a friend or two.
After all networking among friends is what we do.
Right?
True-True.
I am so into you.

I am into us coming together as a whole,
I’m Qui
Living in imagination; if I can think itthe idea can be sold.

I’m a writer and creating content is always my goal.
What’s your inner child style? Access him or her to get your gold.

Please don’t let this piece conclude with you hearing: crickets.
Instead: Use your imagination to help manifest your golden ticket.

In the interim, I’m so glad that you stopped by.
May wisdom heeding and a lot of reading always get you by:

Classic reel cuts.

Reflective FRIDAY

In Movies, Music, News, Science, Self Improvement, Video on May 8, 2020 at 5:30 am

Are you familiar with the headline song, beloved baby?
Have you heard of or bore witness to those big haired 80’s?

I am familiar; I was there.
It was a big time and we rocked with care.

Stiffness was for the hair and hair wasn’t consider an essential.
A stiff ball of hair is also not reflective of being presidential.

Would you agree there are concerns that the era that we’re in is unruly?
Good morning DOJ. Tell me, how are you doing, truly?

Please prove me wrong — I’m thinking you may not be blind.
How many fingers am I using to display this query pine?

paddling_punishmentYes, yes. Let me in – let me in, if you insist on bending over.
I considered you to be no mans lackey; don’t want to call you Rover.

Don’t be tacky, baby. Pray tell “what’s really going on?”
If a man pleads guilty — it’s because a man is wrong.

We are all American’s, we are living cautiously not dumb.
I must say whatever you’re smoking, I don’t want none —

it doesn’t smell right an this truly isn’t the time
for us to be divisive in order to embolden a party line.

This just is not the time nor is it the day.
The world is looking at the inside crooking of our united DOJ.

the-hill_supreme court bldg.jpgHey, from that hill, we’ve long hailed a cry of justice and glory.
Headline news today tells a very weak and different story.

Headline news is talking about you.
‘Hold your head DOJ; the people need you to.

Meaning, stand your ground in being sound.
America’s throwback reputation deserves a pound.

I know, I know – I know what you’re thinking
America has been dirty before; her tact was stinking.

It’s true. It’s true, a stinking past we all do have.
That’s no reason to jump into season “Let’s all stink like ass.”

Right?
DOJ, please “walk towards the light”.

[@2:00]

Pull your pants back up; no moons, please – we seek the sunshine.
Let’s get back to law keeping order; our choice of wielding pine.

jiggly-thigh_girl.gifDOJ: Hold those scales and close your eyes.
Someone please take some fabric and wrap up her thighs.

She is quite giving.
It’s not a good look for where we are living.

DOJ, DOJ. I am thinking about you
and all of the good that you’ve spurred and all you still DO.

You’ve still got our eye, please don’t change on we.
It’s sexy to live up to your potential and strengthen our legacy.

I am not going to give up on thee. I am just not one to quit.
Though the “ON MY OWN” video is how I feel in my spirit.

I feel like we, as American’s are ‘on our own.’
I feel like MacCaulay Culkin in HOME ALONE.

But you keep saying that ‘you are home.’ May I ask if you’re incognito?
I’m Qui
and the people, “we” just want to make sure that nothings wrong

with you.
We support you to wellness because we love you.

GET WELL DOJ.
Here’s another jam for you to play:

“I know you can do it.”

Be Encouraged.

A CAUTIOUS SQUARE around the PUBLIC SQUARE

news peruse

As important as DOJ NEWS is right now,
Covid19 continues to claim more lives anyhow.

Don’t forget it.
The state can reopen, but you don’t have to “get with it.”

This is not the time to return to normal and flex resilient clout
by laughing at PPE and insisting on taking your family out.

The weekend is upon us again
and I am coming to you as a friend

and asking you not to go out to that bar.
That day is coming – but not here by far.

Stick with me, kinfolk.
Look out for you; don’t be antsy and choke.

You may have to go to work, because the rent don’t stop.
But you don’t have to mingle with friends or cluster shop.

This moment in time is like ‘having sex with no condom in a day
when folks are dying in droves of AIDS.

Mondays Mercies

Mondays-Mercies.jpg
.
Good morning beloved. Did you rise early today?
I did. Me and the fam have plans to work and play.

How on Earth did you spend your Easter Sunday?
I wrote a short film and storyboarded the way.

I’m in a Short Film production challenge with friends.
We are charged to produce a film about physical distance.

A financial prize will go a long way on the rent.
Composing a comedy is a how my Easter was spent.

And then boom! The alarm went off this morning.
I was up at at 4am, with a quick goodbye to yawning.

I-want-to-be-with-you.gifGood morning beloved! I sure wish that you were here.
This “physical distancing thing” has me yearning to be near.

Monday be Merciful to us all and level out the numbers
of folk affected by the virus; official ineptitude bungle.

I arose this morning early because I like to pray;
check in with God, thank Him for my mind and bod,
before going forward to play out the day.

While kneeling in reverence I thought about you,
and inserted into my prayer, that God pull you through.
Check in with Him, for what you should and shouldn’t do.
He’s got the whole world… so he got you, too.

Live more mindfully during this era. Pray for divine & life saving insight.
Wear PPE to protect your family, KL, & me! And “we gone be alright!”

What do you think? How’s the fam feeling?
Boris Johnson was sick, and now he’s healing.

The world could use a little bit  more of that. I’d say it’s quite thirsty.
The world is full of much ignorant bull, I pray today for Monday’s Mercies.

Could you use some? Mercy is a verb
when the kids are at home from school and on your nerves.

Is that what’s up?
Consider the kids to be “gifted love.”

Think about it — you work so much to hold-it-all on the line.
When were you ever going to carve out so much family time?

who-me_black-guy.gif

Yes, you.

You probably were not. So, this moment-in-time is a gift. Do let it be.
Dig-in and wear a grin as you thank God for Monday’s Mercies.

Every free moment that you have today, please use it to pull rank,
by conversing with God (in your mind) and throwing in a few “thanks.”

It will go a long way in your energy yield and I’m confident that you’ll find,
Monday to be full of beloved Mercies wrapped in a Covid19 time.

Everything is going to be fine once we, collectively heed and yield respect to,
I’m Qui
Happy to be among the living with thee. We will only get better if we expect to.
