Sage That

In Communication, Music on February 16, 2023 at 4:04 am

Anytime is a good time to clear the air or to ‘go & get some fresh air to clear your mind and reboot, if need be. Sometimes a reboot a necessary. Not a “do over,’ but a reboot. Why a reboot? Because tomorrow is coming.

The body and mind were previously cued to relax when you exited the office. Leaving the job would key up emotions towards the family mechanics that would play-out once you reached home.

That is not the case, today.

Todays Mechanics:

Morning meetings are done in your dining room with the television on mute in the background, as you lead the ZOOM charge at the start of your corporate-productive day. After a series of meetings, you put your breakfast away and/or wash dishes, and then check your email.

Wired contents are 80% good, but 20% is pretty smelly and has subconsciously effected your mood. You smile and power through because that’s what you do. The doorbell rings and it’s your neighbor concerned with missing delivery packages and what not. You listen because you care.

Alas, those email responses did not write themselves. You don’t miss a beat. Lunch is whatever you find around the house and dinner for the fam will be manifested…whether you prepare it or run and get it — it will be on the table at the appropriate time. No stress.

You finish your corporate tasks via a nifty phone/laptop combo while wearing an apron and a tool belt. Let’s not discuss the loads of laundry that you did while on hold and/or waiting for a document to print. ‘Felt natural.

But at the end of the day
when the sun goes down and the demands are at bay,
please come back to this place
and Press PLAY
because there’s always TIME FOR YOU to Sage:

We are all waking up from a restful sleep
to the beat of MAHOMES and The CHIEFS!

You saw them on the field of the Super Bowl
and even you yelled out, those CHIEFS got soul!

My team is DALLAS and in the face of how the 2022 Season played out — how can I be mad?
Rhianna put on a show for the world to know, but Mahomes & The Chiefs were SUPER BAD.

It was a great time had –even though I was not present at the game.
But the way the Chiefs played smart ball with the clock in the end, made me think of ol’ James.

Seconds always count and my relationship with the field clock is one of: annoyed.
Though for how Coach Reed played the clock out yesterday, I had to poke The Cowboys!

I like that kind of noise. Productive to the end.
Way to go go CHIEF boys! You arrowed up a great win.

And with that we have a great week to begin.
Wake up with intentions and work-them-in.

I will meet you mid way at the opportunistic spin,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, make this a Mahomes week; YOU Quarter Back and WIN.

Chiefs Travis Kelci danced on Jason Kelci’s Eagle — and it was a good look.

listen-quote-larry-kingI have met some pretty fantastic people online and offline, that have fantastic conversation. No matter what topic we are on, they always have the perfect quips, responses, and quotes on hand. These are the most entertaining persons especially when marinated in wisdom.  Proverbial quotes – I like them. They can be witty, instructional and informational all at once. Wisdom does indeed come with age though I have found divine wisdom coming out of the mouths of babes, on a few occasions as well. That’s the best kind of communicative exchange – when you walk away wiser and proactively in thought.

I was raised in the church and I remember when Paster Floyd G. Taylor would preach and the saints were feeling it – they would belt out encouraging remarks like, “SAY THAT!, Tell the truth! and Amen!” Those are my exact sentiments when I fall into the captive conversation of a well versed conversationalist. Now while I can hold my own in verse, I am always in it to learn so the following quotes are a a mixed bag of wisdom, order and musical fad. All of the quotes are enlightening and much can be drawn from them in comprehension. Let’s take a dip into WHO SAID WHAT:

“I might not be someone’s first choice But I am a great choice. I may not be rich but I am valuable. I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not because I’m good at being me. I might not be proud of some of the things I’ve done in the past, but I am proud of who I am today. I may not be perfect but I don’t need to be. Take me as I am, or watch me as I walk away. Forget yesterday-it has already forgotten you. Don’t sweat tomorrow- You haven’t even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift” – Today
[I found this quote on a BlackPlanet profile page].

“Punks jump up to get beat down!”  – Brand Nubian 

“Woman” was the test, but not every woman seemed to qualify. Black women, of course, were virtually invisible within the protracted campaign for woman suffrage. As for white working-class women, the suffrage leaders were probably impressed at first by the organizing efforts and militancy of their working-class sisters. But as it turned out, the working women themselves did not enthusiastically embrace the cause of woman suffrage.”
Angela Y. Davis, Women, Race, & Class

“Bill Cosby is a famous black guy who has a bully pulpit the size of the world; it’s global. He puts his colossal foot on the vulnerable necks of poor people, and as a result of that, we don’t have a balanced conversation.”
Michael Eric Dyson


“Life is a game that must be played” – Fab5Freddy
“Live with a purpose or generally get slayed.” – Qui

The weekend will be wall-to-wall with opportunity. Be sure to participate in the come-up and look for me.

Sounds enriching and promising enough – I’m certainly up for it.
And if good conversation is on the table for the abled — I’ll be trying to score it!

To be bore-ish is no objective of mine, 
I prefer to intertwine in the intellect of the brightest minds.

Todays quoted finds were easy to locate.
Each one in some capacity, ol’ Qui can relate.

From Dallas, to New York and the Southwest to  the boot,
I’ve found plenty of good conversation – a good mind is a hoot!

Speak wisdom and knowledge to me and I will belt out: “SAY THAT!
I’m Qui
To the good conversationist: “Oui! Come with it. I do give back!

Though I must confess, I do delight in “the listen.”
From your head to mine – information sparkles and glistens.
