Even Better

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on October 9, 2020 at 5:50 am

Historic annals are in the progress of recording; refrain from being the one penned as ‘doing the farting.

You’ve got to do that for you. At Wednesday night’s debate, Senator Harris came through. Her intentions were forthcoming; her conversation is truth.

At the poll’s bare your souls and vote for the interest of you and tomorrow’s youth’s youths. Legacy will come through. What will history say about you?

If things are kosher for you now, you should strive to make them even better. Informed lobes shine like gold; they function best when knowledge is wetter.

Let this lesson that is upon our nation be a no forgetter. If you’re wiser today than yesterday — that’s even better.

 

Life is a script that each man makes on a fly. A foiled kidnapping of the MI governor was an excellent catch by the F.B.I.

Thank God for law and order; we remain safe during this by-and-by. We’re living out a series not scripted – well at least not nigh. Please believe history will rely on footage archived from this era of our lives. Oh my.

Do we want our names on that? We can change the narrative and punch COVID until it’s flat if we go to the polls and form our vote to frame up like a bat.

It’s what we need to do to insert the facts. With a little unity between you and me, we can get our country back.

To the goodness in our history, we should all strive to tether. To achieve unity across our national community is key and even better.

We can do it. I know that I want it. Let’s run this thing on in; no need to punt it.

Debates are dangerous because airborne viruses can make people sick. Further in-person debates must be for entertainment’s sake –because you and I – we got this.

No more “hot mess” or debating b.s. – this moment is a no forgetter. I’ll see you at the polls; the tallies won’t be close, because you and I can do better.

I vote PEVL then I drop my ballot off at the poll. I appreciate the community love and every clerking soul.

You are a front liner, too – your efforts are gold. Thank you, thank you. May God bless you, 100-fold.

100-fold, in terms of an investment, would mean that you’ll receive 100 x’s more in return. To give unselfishly yields the brightest returns in history; selfish calculations always burn.

I believe in you and me; I believe in the American go-getter,
I’m Qui
If you believe that we can do it too, well now — that’s even better.

So Far So Good

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, TV Shows, Video on October 7, 2020 at 5:15 am
Seriously. It’s good.

While on hiatus, I found a whole lot of space and time
to take it easy, live life breezy, fast forward, and rewind.

Delving into streaming series is how I spent my time.
Entertained I was; the time was surely mine.

I journeyed LOST IN SPACE and got lost in AWAY. I finished both series just yesterday.

I am in the current throws of LOVECRAFT COUNTRY and FARGO.
Chris Rock is maturing well; I dig him as Loy Cannon – in a gangster role.

The comedian portrays a community boss — and I do like.
Fargo went to the hood to storyline spike.

Good choice. Chronicle yesterday’s relative and give it voice.
So far, so good inside of HBO’s horror series hood.

Are you watching Lovecraft Country? It’s magic & black folk and civil-rights funky. I like the horror hue, so I’m bringing it up to you.

Are you watching?

Fargo, o’ Fargo. The town’s mixed couple conveys all funeral shows.
But what does it mean that their daughter is sharp like Einstein, yo?
I don’t know, I don’t know, and such details keep me glued to the show.

FARGO’s town mortician, Thurman Smutney and his daughter Ethelrida.

Fargo is fairly early in its 4th season while Lovecraft’s season 1 is about to close.
Lovecraft Country fights monsters as a family while gentrification takes the lead in Fargo.

The four streaming shows are all Grade-A to watch.
Good writing is exciting and thwarts watching the clock.

Boredom has come to a halt. Good streaming entertainment can be bought.
Cop it and watch it.

I dig YouTubeTV, HBOMax, FX, Netflix, and Amazon, too.
While on hiatus, I sipped cocktails while watching a few.

Last week’s retreat was good for me. Did I miss thee? Like you wouldn’t believe, but hiatuses are oh so necessary.

What are the headlines on your plate today?
Have you been keeping up with the news as of late?

I have. The broadcasts have been nothing at which to laugh. COVID19’s spike resists our requests to go flat. We’re all concerned a bit about that. How do we get our collective good health back?

The Coronavirus tally is running… | November 3rd is coming.

Inside of the footer of this page in the leftt-hand slot, the PLAN TO VOTE Image is capacity hot.

Have you clicked it? A planyou must get it.

So far, so good we are doing our best. Today’s hump is an assist — not a test.

Thank God for the elevation that allows us to see more; for providing us the space to love and increase our emotional IQ score.

Speaking of, the LOST IN SPACE series is full of emotional exercise. The last episode of season 2 caused water to well up in my eyes 

continually. The credits rolled over compassion and humanity.
The AWAY series boasts love, human touch, and family.
Relationships seem to rule in and out of gravity and that’s okay with me.

So far, so good. We are mid-week for sure,
I’m Qui
Talking show-shop with thee is a serial cure.

The moral is beautiful.

Weekend Speakin’

In Advertise, Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, Video on October 2, 2020 at 5:15 am

I feel like a verser, a freestyler, a battle rapper, a babe. I feel a moment coming upon me where I don’t want to behave.

Putting it on the mic is brave. Check 1-2. Can you hear me > hear me?The echo is my signature, yo; philosophers endear me.

The unintelligent could fear thee; agree with them quickly. Handle your business, avoid glibness, and return to base swiftly.

The weekend is speaking, and it is saying to you, “Keep your head on a swivel, be a giving-giver, and build a rep of following through.”

This piece is composed for you. What have you got planned for the weekend?

I’m Qui

Sweet on thee and the griot POV. The weekend is ours to win.

Let’s get it in.

T is For

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on October 1, 2020 at 5:15 am

T is for the trumpet of la niece; Mary Trump is the loudest. T is for patriotic triumph and Americans are the proudest.

T is for more terrific times, and of course, Thursday. T is for thorough research and trendy verb play.

T is for togetherness; I miss you. Do you miss me? —  T is for the tight squeeze that we could remain in w/o unity.

Today I feel a lot of love in my community. I feel a renew of love between you and me.

T is for Thank You I am grateful for all that I have recently heard.  People in my red state will vote for unity’s sake. Tone is always word.

T is for think. Don’t you dare just go with the flow.  T is for thoughtfulness; exhibit as much during your to and fro.

T is for talk Don’t engage in it if you are not prepared.  Intelligence is weighed; each listener to parse his own fair.

C is for compassion. There’s always room for THAT today.  T is for the tenacity to kneel in reverence and pray.

Time waits for no man, and time is not infinite for any of us.  It is time we cut the –ish and focus intent on humanity and love.

We’ve done it before — and we gained the world’s TOP SCORE.

Let’s do it again. — Elect a new president and win.

Are you down?  T is for thwart. Thwart our role as world clown.

T is for your town. How would you like yours to look tomorrow?

I’m Qui

Thinking about we, and how we can thwart our COVID tally sorrows.

We can do it. Masks thwart transmission. — We can do it. VOTE to render this era into remission.

“T” up

Monday Morning

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, TV Shows on September 28, 2020 at 5:15 am

Monday Morning:  Things are getting world-wide-weird again. — I stopped fracking with social sites because bots are not my friends.

They pretend to be social kin  and have formed decoy sites — to anchor Gravatars while they peruse and LIKE writes.

Butt for what? Ain’t nobody giving bot love.

Monday Morning, I’ve no time for late introductions or yawning. I pray the polls be on ‘swoll with our collective-unity spawning

in just a few weeks. Let no American be vote-shy or poll-weak.

In November I intend to vote my interests and base them on the facts. I know that the IRS can reach you best if you forfeit on a tax.

I’m no expert, but on this I do know — because in 2011 the IRS came for me, yo.’

In reference to taxable dollars that went unpaid – on a lump sum that I received from closing out my 401K.  I really had no choice my job closed shop and moved away.

This was back when the 2008 recession hit.  Who knew lucrative gain would not return for a bit?

Business finally resumed about 3 years later — and the IRS came for me like Cruella Deville on gators.

I recall that I had just logged 3 new clients, with promissory notes to pay me — when the IRS entered stage left and emptied-out all of my savings.

Aw frick-frack and what the heck! That was quite the “wake-up” point. So, are we sure the IRS doesn’t know about the 1st fam’s tax-less  paying joints?

The U.S. is a lot sharper than that. — The U.S. is funny about folk not paying tax.

Pinclipart.com

It’s just who we are.  The IRS is filled with the best contact-tracing stars.

They are quick if they think that you owe them a check.  Paying taxes is our way to show country love; we invest.

Monday Morning, what new headlines will be born out of today?  I’m a writer with a griot lighter – I’ve already meditated and prayed.

I am awake and ready to participate. What give’st thee?

I’m Qui

ISO the good of we; utilizing Monday as opportunity.

Vision and Focus from 1860

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Politics on September 18, 2020 at 9:16 am

What does tomorrow look like in your mind’s eye? 10-years, 20-years, 200-years from nigh?

You ought to always think forward, from what I just read – yesterday’s woke vision was more than a century ahead.

So I was talking to Fab5Freddy the other day, and he dropped a link referencing The Wide Awakes.

I was intellectually-smashed and enlightened to the hilt because Fab is always on “the progressive” tip.

My mind is always in-search-of a new wrinkle, so I took a quick researching sip — and learned that the Wide Awakes, in essence, have been evolution’s progressive whip.

Formed from the Republican Party in 1860, they pushed for President Lincoln to win. Then they trolled the states with ‘freedom sway‘ for my enslaved kin until the Emancipation Proclamation kicked-in.

What great vision. Evidence reveals that they are still on a mission.

United. Collectively we can conquer all. The Wide Awakes of 1860 had vision and gall.

The spirit of their focus has strengthened with time and has brought many iconic artists together to vibe.

From ObeyTheGiant to Fab5Freddy, Ebony Brown, and Alicia Keys — I am grateful to witness the fruit with century-year-old roots, alive & well, and in full swing.

Life is all about learning and getting better. Tell me something new, and I turn into a research go-getter.

Hank Willis Thomas heads up the 2020 Wide Awake group that defines itself as “a network of like minds who create in the name of liberation, artist sovereignty, and the evolution of society” that aims “to radically reimagine the future and enable self-emancipation.”

Hank Willis Thomas. Who is he? He is an American conceptual artist whose capacity produces the most creative + smartest.

Per the JstorDaily – They were known as the “Wide Awakes,” because of their youth, enthusiasm, and torch-lit nighttime marches. “Now the old men are folding their arms and going to sleep,” said William H. Seward while campaigning for Lincoln, “and the young men are Wide Awake.”

They ran through the streets of the South in the 1860’s — they are a heavy weigh-in as to why slavery missed me

The spirit of their fruit is more than a century years old and their reconvene is our progressive gold.

This topic reminds me that we are always living in legacy-making days. Reality revives Wide Awake and invokes a true quote from SCHOOL DAZE:

New 411 keeps the eyes wide. I credit this brain wrinkle to “the woke” Fab5.

The Weather and The Storms

The weather and relative global storms equal a human’s peace on constant alarm. Perhaps it’s Earth’s natural and reciprocal charm?

Have we treated Mother Earth well? No. Her reflective storms brewing is a direct show.

The weather is degreed by the people. What’s our tenement today? Fire’s reign on the Western seaboard; the sunshine has gone away. The skies are orange and thickly filled with ash gray. Our collective weather worsens as our societal storms do play.

The two are co-sponsoring the look of today. The storm patterns appear to be here to stay. At least for a while, if we don’t change our convenient life’s way; slow down on convenient consumptions, mask-up, and earnestly pray.

The ill of our day is already airborne. The weather of society is sick with alarm; actively engaged in a 2020 storm. What’s the price of today’s peace? A leg, a life, and/or an arm. What happened to yesterday’s compassion, growth, and charm?

Here’s an idea! Let’s use two legs, two arms, and all of our digits — to go to the poll for humanity’s soul. Unity. Please feel it.

Our lives will improve if we can collectively correct and weather these storms,

I’m Qui

Good morning to thee, let love and unity thwart pending harm.

With the proper formula, we can weather any storm:

Compassion + Mindful Actions =

Let’s induce it.

BOT BOOTY

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on September 9, 2020 at 4:47 am

About the size of a gnat’s arse, is how large the brain may be —
of a “mock-account holder” who dabbles-in “pretending to be…”

Oui. Oui. It is true, it is true.
When you live your purpose folk may want to be you.

This moment in time ushers in big BOT season.
The 2020 Election coming up has got to be the reason.

Social Media operates under a constant threat of hacks.
Blogs are in the same lane; you gotta’ know that.

BOT BOOTY is the hind parts of one who is lowly hired
to infiltrate, snake, and replace your peace with faux fires.

I noticed a couple of bots that have named themselves after me.
I’m flattered that they recognize that “words of wisdom are key.”

Though I have a feeling that the unauthorized URL suckling’s of my namesake
have not formed to poeticize, but perhaps to confuse and perpetrate.

The number of countries that drop in to read ye ol’ chronicles of Griot
reminds me to be mindful of my communication flow.

Bot Booty knows nothing about that.
Google yourself and see what comes back.
Bot Booty website’s are comparable to URL fat
or at the most -the literal hind parts of a gnat.😛

Don’t kiss or click that!

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
always thinking of thee. Dimensions keep us from being bland.

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.
