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?

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.
Are you ready, y’all?

Monday Muse

Good morning Museful Monday. My weekend was great.
My collegiate studies were tended to; a strengthened GPA.

I did a little DIY artwork – to help me see clearer;
I applied strips of jewel-bling to my dresser mirror.

Pics are coming soon! It’s detail work in progress.
I was inspired by my headboard from Wayfair, I guess.

Coordination is what I’m into; let my socks match my shirt.
Let my unmentionables be a match and my scarf to my skirt.

Let my bag be like Cardi B‘s and filled with lots of M-O-N-E-Y.
I’m inspired to BACK IT UP, encouraged to script a new write.

It should encompass a little bit of you, a little bit of me and those other two…
I may even sprinkle in a bit of naught & a grin for my Monday Muse.

tracy-morgan_wordplay.gifA word orgy. Let’s do something rank!
Strip down words to naked verbs
be expressive; walk the plank.

I like seeing ‘what you got.’
Speak your mind all of the time – your honesty is hot.

Give it to me. I like the way that you live.
I’m open on the take and happy to counter-give.

I give back dear Monday; for your goodness, I cannot refuse.
I’m Qui
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed about today’s trail. Come with, o’ Monday Muse.

Alas it’s Friday and I’m Going Dancing

In Communication, Griot, Music, Self Improvement, Video on January 11, 2019 at 12:00 am

calculating-cat.jpgWhen was the last time that you went dancing and danced like no one was looking – really?
Well, that’s too long if it was more than a week since you hit it . You feel me?

I’m going out tonight and I don’t mind scooping you up.
Single or not the time is nigh to exert a calorie gut-bust.

Yes-yes! Under or overdressed, I am heavily into it
if I can get a tutor for my math. Please tell me you can you do it?

How are your Trigonometry skills? How are sine, cosine, and tangent?
I wouldn’t know, Trig is new to my fro – I’m stuck on angling in.

Praying to the Lord that guessing is not a sin – because I realize that I’m chancing.
Like I said, Alas it’s Friday and (Lord) I’m Going Dancing.

bey-drunken-love-dancingI could use a good Soul Train line right now,
doing the Sissy-Boo, Dougie Fresh and Doo-Doo Brown.

Later on this eve, it’s going down, though for now, I’m bright-eyed – yo.
I’ve got a cup of jo, and a Math test via laptop – ready to go.

You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to calculate for a few hours, break – then calculate for another spell,

UPDATE:

Alas, I return after several hours of working 230 Algebraic/Trigonometry equations and an additional two tests immediately after that.
I am happy to report that it is 5 am on Saturday morning and I’m about to hit the sack.
Just a little FYI for the inconspicuous eye: “Yes, I think I’m falling for math! The variable definitely adds…”

Saying Too Much often yields to A Setup

Dont-Talk-Too-Much-Proverbs.jpg
A genius R.E.M. once said:

Oh, life is bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I set it up…”


.

A wise Qui once said:

“Stop talking
and focus on your walking.

Things will never let up
if you’re constantly trying to “setup.”

Whatever crazy off-the-cuffs that you want to divvy — DON’T DO IT.
Your future is always in the building stages – please don’t screw it.

I suggest we zip our lips, raise our arms and waive mo.’
I suggest working on an unspoken vibe; taking notes from PEYO:

Peyo says nothing at all and wordless compassion is the perfect ‘get up.’
I’m Qui
Good Morning to thee. From blah-conversation please do break free to avoid a future setup.”

Perhaps we met in a past life…

What is it that keeps us attracted to a persons spirit long after our physical relationship has ended? What then keeps you connected and caring for them years after you have both gone your way?

I ponder such things because one of my closest and most dear friends within whom I trust, was initially my boyfriend when I was 15, in the 10th grade and we are tight today – as if 10th grade yesterday. Like myself, he was an honor student and I had a crush on his brain. Today, I am happy to report that his brain is still quite attractive and somehow he is still single. We broke up because he was insubordinate to one of our academic instructors and stormed out of the building during a standardized testing session. I threatened that if he exited those doors, it would be over between us. He proceeded to exit and we were officially over.  We weren’t romantic so I was referring to our friendship. Boy, was I ever wrong?

So, the other day I was talking to him (whom I refer to as a best friend), and I casually inquired as to ‘why we get along so well,’ he confidently responded, “because we met before, in a past life.”

Do what? What an interesting thing to say, and what’s more, I think he may be right. We have an unspoken vibe. I am not a person that trusts easily, and I always lead with my gut. My solar plex is rarely disturbed when he is in my presence via phone or in person. I don’t ever have to “put on” for him. I’d like to think that he’s ultra fantastic and that’s why we click like we do. But I know several ultra fantastic people and I do not click with them like I click him.

What is this “past life” business? Do you ever wonder if you had one?

I have been with the same partner since I was 17-years old.
We learned of each other when our self-worth was weightier than gold.

We knew no shame so we bared our true souls.
I wonder if we had a past life, that my conscience doesn’t know?

He’s a cool dude and we have the most innocent of begins.
He’s also cool with my ex-beau being one of my best friends.

I feel an Infinity spin.

Not long ago I met a man at Senior Taco who was about eighty years old,
I chatted-him-up like I knew him; he called me an old soul.

Before I left the restaurant he asked me if we knew each other followed by wide eyes.
I responded off-the-cuff, “Perhaps we did good sir – in another lifetime.”

He stood in awe. I smiled, got into my car an drove away.
That run-in has vividly stuck with me until this very day.

What made me say that? I didn’t foresee it.
What made him stand there in recollect? As if he did believe it.

Hm. Interesting indeed. Yesterday draws  a smile and yields me wide-eyed,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, on you I am sweet. Perhaps we met in a past life.

whats-up-scary-movie-spoofWhat’s up, what’s up, what’s up?
Does this evening have you feeling like LOVE?

Mine does. It is beautiful and chilly in this place where I sit.
I’m near a window, it’s perfect to compose a Griot spit.

So I am.
Last week did you eat enough turkey, beef or ham?
Are you working it off today? I surely am.

2018 has been good to me so far,
minus the political petty and food in my belly
the Science of Cinematography is the star.

I love filmmaking! We just wrapped at 5,
and kinfolk I’m here to tell you that I feel all-the-way-live.

I think I’ll mingle with good company tonight,
grab a couple of drinks and maybe a bite.

But I didn’t want to do any of the such
without stopping by and sharing some of this LOVE!

Ain’t nothing like enjoying life to-the-fullest and hugging your passions,

Good evening to thee. 5-4-3-2-1, carry-on and let’s make some more ACTION!

Let’s start at Pappadeaux’s!

 

WHAT IT DO

I’m down with it. Are you?
In a few days, we’ll be in a position to do
WHAT IT DO.

I pray that we are all on one accord
Lest there be a future that we cannot afford.

Don’t even of think of not participating; don’t get bored.
I need you to Do WHAT IT DO for our future to prosper and soar.

Don’t Burn Out – DO Turn Out

Buckle up.

Good morning baby. Did you rest well?
The Judiciary hearing is on pause for a brief investigation swell.

It’s true. Unfortunately, I’m not kidding.
I thought Brett would get the point and by the weekend be quitting.

But that was not a marker that was within his scope.
Our institution is resilient; I won’t lose hope.

Good morning baby. Would you like a cup of jo?
Let’s sit and spit about The Global Citizen Festival, yo.

Did you see it? It went on forever.
It’s events like that that positions NY as especially clever.

The dimensional message and the music were true;
the crowd was composed of intellects who push through.

If you saw the event did you note just how chill
the audience was? They listened and stood still.

You heard Janet Jackson say that she was repulsed and showed no nipple or grin
when she referenced the way that our country is treating and disregarding women.

Good morning baby. What have you got up for the week?
You’re thinking about checking your voter’s registration as I speak?

That’s what’s up.
I bid you a prosperous Monday with lots of hugs and fun.

Human interaction. We all need some,
I’m Qui
Good morning baby. Would you prefer coffee or the human touch yum?

Today, go for them both.
And I’ll meet you in the middle, yo!’
