Its KEY

The C-word

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, Travel, Video, weightloss on September 20, 2017 at 8:30 am

letter-cGood morning sweetheart, my griot remains blunt
thus I want to talk to you about an abbreviation bunt.

When taking a hit in the stress department and harboring painful feelings
— it can yield a hardness to your organs that will need ONCOLOGY healing.

goofy-laughThe C-Word is short for cancer. That’s the intended abbreviated bunt.
With the kids reading I wouldn’t be Rated-R seeding and use The C-Word: CRUNCH,

I mean really. Don’t be silly. Aunt Qui is not that risky of a chancer.
Though it’s true we’re holding unnecessary stresses that turn into cancer.

The key to properly placing stress does not rest in your wrists;
when expressing ‘Why you’re down,’ you respond, ‘He or she – did this.’

That’s a sort of a bunt, but more of a miss –because it’s simply not true.
Though not knowing how to cope with stress means old feelings are harbored by You.

You grit your teeth and seethe. You do it day after day.
You live with the pain and hurtful stains of a strained yesterday.

It’s in your gut. It’s real on your plate.
Misplaced emotions can turn into hate.

Hate that you never voiced, but accepted as ‘all good.’
After all, the hate that you feel comes from your familial hood.

Well, harboring pain is never “all good.”
Stress = Cancer. Get it understood.

Avoid The C-Word! Act like ya’ heard. You must, at all costs!
When it comes to your emotions — you, alone are the boss!

My dad died from cancer at 69-years old just 4-months ago
and my 64-year old aunt via The C-Word, went right after him, yo.

The C-Word illness is real.
They befriended stress and then it killed.

Me? I was curious as to, how this is so?
Then I was told I had a blockage. My response, “NO!!!”

One day at Tao yoga, Master Chun did tell me
that a pain in my right side could lead to “The C.”

stress-2-cancer-route

Stress harboring  can yield to cancer in various organs

Who? What? ME!?
That is right,” said she.

I’m a happy-go-lucky spirit. How could it be?
It was yesterdays stresses — misplaced by me.

I did not know.
The harboring was internal and did not show.

I love my friends and family. I am sure I do it best!
So what’s with this misplaced, harboring of stress?

Well, it was stressful situations from long ago that I thought I’d forgotten about.
Sad emotions hunkered down into my organs and took up storage — to build a cancer route.

But it did not happen.
Tao Master Chun began tappin’

on the sore spot that she had pointed out on my right.
Then she educated me about stresses, cancer and life.

Today, several weeks later – I’m actually feeling alright.
My body is limber and loose and no “hardening of nothing” is in sight.

It took more than education and body tapping, but not much more.
I meditated and converted Stress to Strength via a Sedona Retreat score!

It helped me out a whole bunch!
The C-Word is real, but posed no life crunch!

Today I am not akin to holding stresses, my organs are softening – I’m making it through.
But because life is full of stress I thought it best to share my findings with you.

Because if your abdomen is hard, and you don’t have a six pack
and you’re a tad stressed out, perhaps even feeling fat
but not eating a lot – just stressed out to the max.
I’m gonna ask you to meditate and get ready to bat!

Bunt that away from you. Stress is not yours to keep.
I’m Qui
Good morning baby, I’m a word lover – like no other, touching on The C.

Skosh

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on September 18, 2017 at 4:30 am

about this much…

Less than a dollar worth of change, the last of the milk, a half of piece of toast…
If it’s less than whole, less than 100% — chalk it up as skosh.

Me? I’m skosh-ghost. A little bit of nothing rarely lives here.
I’m a Costco chick, bulk is a hit; yet I’m skosh on the beer.

It makes my stomach bloated, a skosh – it’s not pretty, but it’s true.
I want to spend quality time and more than a skosh with you.

Anywho it’s a beautiful Monday Morning
and I’m several moments post my yawning.

I’m thinking again… yeah I’m brawn’ing.
My morns are filled with academic honing.

To the point –  I’ve been meaning to tell you I’ve gone back to school.
I felt a new Bachelors Degree in arsenal would be pretty cool.

I’m a content writer; a PSA filmmaker.
A degree in Cinematography would add to my money maker. 🤗

Just a skosh.
Tho skill wise I plan to milk it the most.

A new degree and little ol’ me….
Surely you can recall — school does it for me!
Yes sir and Oui!!! Education is always key!

Sure — I already work in the field but it’s always good to know
The roles of as many as possible – as least a skosh.

Good Morning Monday! I don’t know much more than I’m loving you, right now.
I’m Qui
On a high. I’ve got the future in my eye… well a skosh of it, anyhow.

The Band is Back Together

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on September 13, 2017 at 4:41 am

All eyes are now on Dre…

Episode 10, Season 4 of POWER did deliver
and dulled the stereotype of “being a killer.”

You had Budweiser, Coors & Miller together again…
Their government names could never contain the amount of sin

that they have on agenda; the mayhiem they intend to create.
Tommy and Ghost took out Uriel but meant to kill Dre.

Raina’s death was avenged but that doesn’t make all “right.”
Tariq showed up at Ray-Ray’s undercover cop spot and took his life.

He fired two shots and Rays life stalled,
Then Angela came after the fact and found a bullet lodged in the wall.

Tariq used Tasha’s personal handgun
Forcing Tasha to hire Terry Silver and end their romp fun.

Everything is different now…

Now the whole family is under the gun – they live by it.
Me? It’s a heck of a heap, the layers are so deep I had to write it.

For next season, I’m already excited, though I chose to write about Episode 10 today
because not long ago I read an article that indicated “limited episodes” are at play.

Meaning the producers asked for 11 or 12 episodes
to tell a thorough tale but we’re duly told “No.”

Is that so? I surely hope not.
Is STARZ the good guy or the dirty cop?

Why not grant the producers per their request?
Is the series worth it? [Answers] DO IT and HECK YES‼️ 🙂

Forcing the series to combine multiple scripts because there’s no episodic room
makes me wonder what it means to be a successful series boon?

Anywho, I loved every minute in Season 4 of the series POWER.
I pray the premium network STARZ considers yielding a couple of additional hours.

Mmmm. Delicious drama it is.
The highs and lows of life via scripted biz.

No one sits lightly during any scene where we loose a kid.
Tasha’s emotions
are the tumultuous ocean of a broken and bruised Ms.

Kiss-Kiss but let us not dismiss how the season came to a close:
In Tommy’s mustang with Kanan in back and @shotgun, Ghost.

The Band is back together and dare I say,
they’re all focused on their next hit, “El fatality Dre.”

Hey-ey. For the series to have been expressed via 10 episodes,
KUDOS to every facet and all involved – a relative tale was always told.

The POWER series produces juices that look like gold,
I’m Qui
Flexing POWER with thee about the game being told and sold.

The prey starring in THE SINNER

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on September 8, 2017 at 4:36 am

scorpion and frog.png

Imagine if the frog (the prey) became the aggressor…

Woop! Woop! When it comes to repentance — I’m no beginner
though a whole lot of repentance is needed on that new show, THE SINNER.

Have you seen it? It’s wayward situations up-end the term ‘off the rails.’
After watching this new series, it’s building a case for the existence of hell.

Something has happened to the principle female played by Jessica Biel.
Her name is Cora in the script and her current residence is jail.

Webp.net-gifmaker (5).gif

One minute Cora is having a fine day at the beach with fam and the next minute she’s stabbing Franky in the jugular.

One day while with fam at the beach she just upped and killed a young doctor.
Her husband alone reacted in trying to stop her…
Those that know her say her usual character is so proper…
still amidst loud music on the beach Cora killed Franky, a young doctor.

The name of the series is THE SINNER, though it’s not about church.
Cora once said, this was about a child that she lost via an early birth…

But that may be a lie.
She spoke with conviction but never minded the why.

That’s the thing with Cora – whatever is wrong within her
Is embedded so deep, that it had to be fashioned by ‘a sinner.’

the-sinner-bill-pullman.jpg

Bill Pullman plays the detective whose interested in the WHY!

But I’m not so convinced the sinner is Cora – she’s not the beginning of the fault
Perhaps t’was a guardian or something deep from her past; situational mind-fraud.

Good Lord, the title name is The Sinner and the network hosting it is USA.
I ran through the first 5 episodes via OnDemand though its air day is on Wednesday.
I think Cora’s The PREY.

I wish I could tell you more, but I really cannot.
The series is  so unpredictable – it could’ve been aired on FOX.

Cora is so confused and so am I.
I’m no sinner and can’t stand a lie

yet so many lies are told in this script that it’s hard to decipher the truth when necessary,
I’m Qui
Watching this twisted ruse that’s Cora’s truth – built on the sins of the past that she carries.

It’s intriguing, human-faulty and scary.

Dahn Jon

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Travel, Video on August 28, 2017 at 8:07 am

STS-dahn jon.jpgI decided to break from the grind of corporate contract winners
and dedicate some “me time” via the Tao Healing Center.

We met up in Sedona
Where big energy rests on ya.’

We did introspection reflections; we looked within ourselves.
The healing practice mainly costs you time for yourself.

Leave at home your mundane concerns and wealth – it’s not needed here.
Sedona has a reputation of internal peace and ‘wiping the mind clear.’

It totally and completely did it for me.
I resided in Sedona for days of 3.

Three is a small number  – though my internal organs received it as rigorous fun.
I practiced in converting STRESS TO STRENGTH with Tao Master Chun.

We acknowledged our Chakras and and focused on feelings to reconnect…
Then we hiked the Healing Gardens and visited an awesome vortex.

I stood still in the thick of it, grateful to God;  standing on sacred ground.
I calibrated my vision to see the energy particles,  mid air; all around.

There – is where good energy abounds. I was amazed.
Then we passed the sight of Levenson’s resting place.

Ilchi is the man that revived the dream
that Levenson left – when he conceded life’s scene.

Therein is the tale that provided the retreat
That I dedicated to myself over days of 3.

Converting Stress to Strength –
Is how my time was spent.

My Dahn Jon does it me.
We tapped and patted our energy free.

Penned up emotions have no magic potion of which I can tell.
But a trip to a Mago retreat could facilitate you into being well.

STS-Sadie-13-yearold-energetic-powerhous

Teen energy is HUGE!!! Go Sadie!

We meditated a lot. When was the last time that you did?
In our class of mature energy there was a lone majestic kid.

She was just 13. She opened her heart and took in the scene.
She arrived as a child and returned home – a wiser teen.

It was a beautiful thing.
I cried, I laughed, I even attempted to sing.
The experience invoked me. I was charmed by the scene.

I arrived a mess out of sorts, so I communed in nature with an open heart.

STS-5-Element-Stress-and-Emotion-Cycle.jpg

You retain stress in your organs. Be encouraged to RELEASE that. You don’t deserve it.

I was energetically all over the place; I carried quite a lot to deal…
Chun and those attending with me coalesced their energy & we healed.

Today I feel refreshed, renewed and glad to be a member
of such a loving family at the Tao Healing Center.

We all need it – to reconnect and focus on self.
I’m Qui
Encouraging you to a Mago Retreat. Invest in you and return to well.

PS — Here’s a little note to those who joined me in retreat this weekend and won,
If you find that your body is still sore from our retreated score – no problem, it’s just your Qijong.

And said “Click on the Google icon during the weekend of August 11th.”

I yielded the anticipation towards art and was indeed thrilled to execute and learn

NEWS PERUSE

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on August 2, 2017 at 4:45 am

NEWS PERUSE_GossipGood morning sweetheart. Did you sleep well?
Did you dream a little bit; were you the hero for a spell?

Me? All is well and the last 2-days have been spent
With me recovering from a car accident.

It happened Monday after I talked to you,
It was hairy but I made it through.

I think I’ll do a little myofascial massage therapy.
My muscles are pretty tense  – I’m a few years passed 23.
😊 I really have to take care of me.

Anywho, enough about my mishaps, what about you?
Have you been following the headline news?

I hope that you have not, though today I could not refuse
For old times sake I’ve pulled together a NEWS PERUSE:

It’s been a minute
since you and I have been all-up-in-it.

Now, I won’t linger on any story, I am just going to say this
The health care repeal is a battle uphill and the last vote missed.

Don’t get too happy about this – the pres isn’t giving up.
He insists a bill is to be passed, he’s got corporate taxes to cut.

alkaseltzer-fizz.jpeg

Letter Dictating can cause heartburn

And then there’s this one story that out sizzles Alkaseltzer in fizz
Everyday there’s a glitchy bump with Trump and this “Russia biz.”

This administration is on course to be documented as a no forgetter —
And what was the president doing dictating Donald Jr.’s [Russian meeting] letter?

See? He needs supervision.
He thinks he’s the star of a reality series on television.

And he kind of is.
This NEWS PERUSE is a take and a give.

We’re taking what the administration is giving us.
Like it or not – it’s all pretty rough:

Highlights that we cannot refuse.
Imagine how we look across the worlds view.

Its HUMP DAY
today and I don’t mind
doing a little reading, fast forward and rewind

To see where we’re going as a people; will America still be considered charming
after the harm that we are self-imposing and our stance on global warming?

Love? We need some more. I think Love hung up the phone.
Love? We better spread more and we better start at home.

General Kelly fired him.

Resist from lulling into a low in your level of morality,
The pres was kidding about encouraging police brutality.

He was also kidding and merely shooting the bull about
when he started telling that rated-R [yacht] joke to the members of The Boy Scouts.

.

.

.

Our kids need help building tomorrow and tomorrow is built today.
Do not allow this period that we’re in to desensitize your morals away.

Taking civil rights away from the gay. How is that helping humanities cause?
And what’s with waiving our environmental standards to build the border wall?

Is a wall really that important? Is that what’s sending morale to hell?
Perhaps we’re over reacting, like we did with Clintons emails?

I don’t know for sure, I’m speculating via a griot fuse,
I’m Qui
Running through the periodical view to erect this NEWS PERUSE.


I think it’s limp.

In short, I woke up dancing this morning.
I sprung out of bed with very little yawning.

My mind spinning and spawning tales to convey in script.
The pages are filling, the details are ripped

and embellished with roots.
Ooo oui! I’m an excited she
whose pen is bearing fruit.

I had a script construction meeting Friday night
that did indeed leave me feeling dope & hype!
Oh my!

There was an Aquarius on board, a real pretty Ms.
She scribbled on my script – details that I’d missed.

Thank you, Ms. Aquarius.

aquarius-symbol

I do appreciate your input and wisdom
and will be sure to re-connect for another red-line check
via your eye for television. check-mark

This morning I woke up feeling blessed.
I’m slow to rise – no pending stress.

Though I’ve got my hands full with a pen in one and a lap top in the other,

I do it like no other. xoxo

Waking Up to TIMOTHY, again

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows on July 26, 2017 at 11:13 am

I initially posted this piece in March of 2017, though as the days progress I feel compelled to post it again for further review.
Allow me to reintroduce the topic of tyrannical juice via TIMOTHY SNYDER to you.
A little insight on how dictators come through:

divider blk_south

waking-up-is-keyI’ve been with my guy for more than two decades, (since high school), so waking up to Timothy Snyder was something new to me. Good thing my guy isn’t the jealous type, because Timothy has a book that has caught my attention and demands ‘curl-up-in-the-bed’ time, so I’ve been ‘curled-up.’

How did I meet Timothy? Bill Maher introduced me to him last Friday night (I’m quick! 🤗) – he was a panel guest. Did you see the show? It was enlightening and heavy all at the same time. And by “heavy” I mean in yielding brain lobe capacity. You know THAT works for me. Oui! Meet Timothy:

timothy-snyder-tyranny

I met Timothy on REAL TIME with Bill Maher on Friday
He was discussing historical tyranny; education always equals a high day.

I kept the channel locked. Here is where I wanted to play,
it was pretty good stuff. Here’s a 5-min vid of Tim’s informative say:

Heyyyy! That’s whats up. Did you get that?
Aw, you know me. I’m a knowledge hungry she,
and yes — I definitely dug that.

It was so good, so proven and so deep…
I think I’ll transcribe the conversation for “readers on ‘the creep.'”

But that will take a little bit of time.
Peep YouTube – now, before they kill the line.

Me? On this Wednesday morning, I’m feeling fine.
I’ve got a few hours pending before tackling my grind.

I’m hitting you up, because you’ve been on my mind.
Good morning baby. I’m on my lobe-lift grind.

The day is early and knowledge is a good serve anytime!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’m content with spooning this book of mine.

I’m imploring you to expand your mind and to read a book today
Protect yourself, health and wealth from the tyrannical methods of yesterday!
DO Be wary of it creeping up again; Resist “the tyranny sway.”

Mondays Reign

Click the pic and hang with the clique

Good morning baby. What’s up?
Did you spend your weekend in the cut?

Did you rise early after bedding late?
Is your SUPER HERO m.o. – always in the office before 8?

I dig your style dear child and today I am working from home.
Things will be semi-different because I usually work alone,

but not today.
Todays desk project calls for absolute SLAY!!

And I’m all in.
IN so deep, I brought a friend.

Two heads are better than one
and Monday Mornings were made for fun!

I’m excited and I’m on it. You wouldn’t shut down at desert would ya?
No! I’m just glad to be in this seat and not that of Jared Kushner.

My sinus’ are quite flared. Arizona’s rain storms are duly moistened the agricultural gardens.
Mother Nature came in strong, but she wasn’t wrong – therefore she needs no general pardons.

Today we’ll be script writing, re-writing and think tanking.
I woke up early to get with it — to God I am thanking.

It’s good to be alive and able to craft my own vibe on this fun day.
Kinfolk, it ain’t no joke, I get real excited about the new of Mondays.

What about the weekend? What did you get into?
I went to see GIRLS TRIP and bonded with the audience group.

jordan-peele-sweating-buckets.gif

we were sweating profusely in REGAL THEATERS in Gilbert, AZ

We saw the film in Gilbert, AZ at REGAL, a movie theater with sweet recliners.
But the A/C was not live in theater 5. Our viewing experience could have been finer.

The facility itself was cold as ice, the lobby, the loo and theater 4.
I know because I took a bathroom break and dipped into 4 to “feel” the score.

It was cool. Real cool. The way I like to be pampered
so I sent my date to the front to inform the manager.

He did, as did several other patrons in the place.
But the air struggled to come through and cool off the space.

Now keep in mind they ask you for an additional fee upfront for their elite accommodations.
I always pay with pleasure. I dig the supply and demand relations

but I couldn’t relate to the hellish fate we endured
however the film was EXCELLENT and proved to be the cure

that kept us all silent and sitting in place.
GIRLS TRIP was off the hook; the audience was multi race.

We sat side by side, we smiled and we laughed.
We watched few step out — the heat was pretty bad.

Of those that stepped out most reported the 411
though it appeared management was rooting for our experience to be undone.

They smirked and tended not to our requests to have the A/C come on,
still kinfolk, you’ve gotta know GIRLS TRIP was the BOMBS!!!!

Have you seen it? If you have not
this is a date night that you’ve got to cop!

Especially if you’re wondering what’s up on my many girl trips.
Let the curious peep this to comprehend what I’m working with.

Good times are definitely being had
and even in the heat — we put off mad.

Though immediately upon the credits roll
the heat that we suppressed came due and on swoll.

We all started to exit, immediately with no words.
I, in my fedora, headed up the march – I was first.

Actually, I did not know
that in the same direction we were all about to go.

I just knew, in good customer communicative fashion
that I was duly on my way to the front to speak to the manager.

The Regal Theater manager on duty Friday afternoon was a no forgetter
his appearance drab, a young lad, his name was Troy Hegstetler.

He came from his box into the lobby seeing only myself and a few other women at first —
thought he’d give us a hard time about our concerns. He was all smirk.

But then as the remainder of the theater showed up to back us in the thicket
Troy asked me, ‘What do you want?’ I said we’ll all take courtesy tickets.

I asked Troy what happened to the AC in theater 5?
He laughed, shrugged and gave me “the business jive.”

I then called my Mom in Texas to inform her
and she said something similar happen to her

when she and her girlfriends went to see it.
They brought blankets for the cold AC, but never reaped it.

She thought that was strange but thought it was just a fluke,
and “Who cared anyway,” Mom said, “GIRLS TRIP is a hoot!”

girls-trip2.jpg

Woooo! I absolutely do agree.
But she’d have got a pair of replacement tickets had she come with me. lol! 🙂

Ooo wee, kinfolk. It was a good weekend and good morning to you again,
I’m Qui
sippin’ on this jo and it’s still raining yo — at this beautiful day to begin.
