Life. Love. Wants. Desires. The more that I marinate in season, the hotter ‘my fire. And I’m not talking about “the change.” I’m having hot flashes, but menopause ain’t his name.

Please feel me. Good love can heal thee.


I should know, I hurt my back doing laundry the other day, but percale aerobics worked that glitch out-and-away.


I am thankful for that — there were calories burned, and I arose with less fat. Oh, snap!


The news is full of gloom, so turn it off. Vaccinations are on way – please steer clear of all coughs.


In the meantime, stay inside and dimensionally work-it-out. Life is doing her thing — resist unnecessary pout. Give all issues to God; He’ll work them out. Don’t forget to ask for endurance for the percale bounce.” 


You know that I like it! Of course, I’d use a low-key Friday to invoke high feelings. Yield no energy to going-out today, instead stay-in for sexual healing


There I said it. Please tell me that you are not reading this out loud — at church, in the car with kids, or a subway in front of a crowd?


If you are doing any of that then you are quite the interesting goer. I am a woman of polls, do tell how’d the “out-loud reading” go over?


If you’re shy, you should give it a try. Read Griot aloud, like a DEF POETRY JAM vibe.


That –ish would be live and I’d listen. Let your words about reflective verbs flow and glisten. 


And It Just Gets Better; life, love, and understanding emotions — learning to love the water and swim across oceans. Life is literally a day at the beach; Do Not Drown in the motions.


If you want to kick-life-up a notch engage in meditation and daily devotion. It rocks!


I began this morning as focused as any go-getter,

I’m Qui

Life is doing her thing, unity will again ring, And It Just Gets Better.


A Bag of LIFE

When it comes to bull corn do you really need to know —
down to the last detail from whence it traveled to and fro?

Will not knowing truly throw you into a rut?
You already know what you need to know – just check-in with your gut.

Sit quietly with eyes closed and ask the universe a question or two —
then check-in with your intuition; it’s always true to you.

Then open your eyes and thank God for the depths of truth.
Thank God that you’re not going to hell in a hand basket; His grace is holding you.

So what – if you’ll never know if a man is telling the truth from the start.
Let folks say what they want – know that God knows their heart.

Embracing this grace will prove you to look and feel smart.
Don’t let questionable chatter and worldly banter pierce your heart.

Staying focused on God is indeed a necessary art.
Your intuition is your compass; use it to chart.

What are your thoughts? Do tell what you think.
I’m Qui
and you’re quite intuitive if you think something stinks.

What I Do Know


A seasoned dancer.

I do know that God is real and that in Him I trust.
What crimes need be committed to warrant the chant: “Lock her up?”

I suppose if Mueller found no wrong doings – then the Clintons must be squeaky clean.
I also know the government does what it wants to take-away from and to add-to any scene.

The worlds way… it’s an old thing, it’s musty and resembles an old box.
I do know that my intuition is gold and that my connection with God rocks.

It’s also true that if you don’t stand for something that you will fall for any old thing.
I do know that we have a creator and it is of Him, to thee I sing.

Wear the cares of this world like salt over your shoulder,”
after mom delivered me those words she turned to granny and said, “I told her!

My ancestors wanted me to know that there is nothing new under the sun.
What I Do Know is that they weren’t lying. Today’s safety is in Wisdom. Get you some.

Don’t spend your time running in packs devised under peer-influenced controls.
God is watching and time is clocking; Vote your interests and pray for your soul.

I don’t need to know it all,
to know not to fall.

This is What I do Know.

What you do with today is solely on you.
Don’t play to the mundane. Call it “an old thang” – that you just don’t do.
On the real, if you want to heal then turn off the news too.


It may be our last true defense.


Okay. You know me well and how I feel about love.
I’m down to start my day with grown play,  a smile and a genuine hug.

I’m down to tell you just how much your good energy makes me smile.
I do believe love makes cross-country journeying feel like one mile.

Unbiased love is the good stuff, child.
Give some today; be guilty of doling it out.

A good life is yours to live and requires not one day of pout.
Give it and it’ll come back to you; love uses a boomerang rout.

When was the last time that you were God-smacked with love?
I’m Qui
and I’m God-smacking you now. Open up, I’m coming in for the hug.

HEART OF DARKNESS is the title of Episode 10. The end of Season 1 is where the real ghosting begins.

In episode 10 Monet killed Rico at the drop because “respect in the game rocks” as a paralleling Cane deep-dives Ramirez’s body with cement blocks. The commonality in these two crest to the top in body drops.

Professor Carrie and Jabari interview Dru’s Man-Crush. Carrie “directs his answers away from Dru and Zeke w/her eyes and gestures.’

Zeke drops in on Professor Carrie and she vows to “fix the mess,” that has his name in the mouths of students who are being interviewed in connection to the swimming pool murder.

Dru wakes up in the hospital to Cane entering his room. Cane anchors an issue with Tariq and Dru cancels it. Cane implies to Dru that he has put Ramirez “where he needs to be.” Dru called the move “dumb” and kicked him out. Cane internalizes his seethe and exists Dru’s room.

Tasha goes to court and Saxe calls Tariq to the stand for questions about the night Ghost died. DA Saxe and Attorney Maclean believe Tariq is the killer and they collaborated on a secret trap to incriminate him. But Tariq drops a dime on the witness stand about Saxe being at TRUTH with a gun the night Ghost died and for most recently for having him drugged by Riley. Maclean interrupts before Tariq could name names and calls for a side-bar and a mistrial.

The judge denies declaring a mistrial and makes new rules for the case that includes Tasha being freed from jail if she turns home Tommy E.’s org and relocates in to witness protection. Tasha takes the deal but secretly plans to run w/her entire fan because the wit-protection program only included Tasha and Yaz.

Riley tries to win over Weston as trouble closes in on her post-Tasha’s trial and Tariq’s court debut.

Zeke drops in on Tariq to inform him that authorities are looking for the GTG swimming pool incident killer.

Later on, Tariq talks to Diana and she warns him about Cane’s erratic behavior and tells him to watch his back.

Weston tells Tariq what Riley said and expressed that he doesn’t believe her. Weston entices Tariq to restart the pharmaceutical game. Tariq is considering it…

Meanwhile Tasha stops off at Monet’s recently shot-up bar to have a woman-to-Woman regarding “family.” Tasha wants to buy Tariq out of the game. Monet is busy not considering Tasha’s plea when someone in a royal blue Mustang (much like the one Tommy inherited from Ghost) did a second drive-by on the bar and killed Monet’s bodyguard.

Back at Stansfield, Tasha does not pass go without warning Tariq about Tommy and induce a family run; Tommy is a killer. But Tariq barks back, remarking that he, too is a killer. Tasha is taken aback and forced to see her son, for the man he has become; that she raised him to be. She acknowledged new respect for him, accepted the burner phone that he gave her and exited his dorm.

Monet tells Lorenzo about the shoot outs at the bar and that she’s looking for Ramirez – because he isn’t taking her calls. ‘Ren tells Monet to get a hold of Cane & get him bk in line while he orchestrated a search for Ramirez.

Monet bursts-in on Cane as he ‘put-in work behind his girlfriend. ‘Monet cock-blocks the moment further when she pulls a gun on Cane for not answering her question: “Have you heard from Ramirez?” Cane talks about Ramirez in the past tense and Monet realizes that he has off’ed her ‘Copper Boo. Like a G with a broken heart she lowered her pistol and remarked that she trusts Tariq because he cannot be trusted, then she exits Cane’s place — stage left.

DA Saxe is staked out in Tasha’s car trying to catch Tommy. Tommy crashes into a flammable guard shack and his vehicle bursts into flames. Tasha somehow didn’t seem too emotionally swayed.

Professor Jabari meets up w/Tariq in a park to give him cash to help Him escape town w/ his family but Cane surprises them both and put one in Professor Jabari, thinking Tariq was ‘ratting out his family.’ He was preparing to shoot Tariq when Eureka entered atop of Tariq’s head. He convinced Cane that killing him and the professor is stupid and that it won’t please Monet. Tariq talked Cane into giving him the gun and to vacate the scene to keep his name clean and out of “Stansfield mayhem.” Cane relinquished his piece and left the scene but not too far that he couldn’t see or hear Tariq fires off two more rounds into Professor Jabari. Satisfied, Cane exits stage right.

We CUT TO Zeke and Carrie carrying-on in her bedroom like all-is-well in Pleasantville (colored with an unbridled passion).

Maclean makes a business proposition to Saxe because the death of Tommy Eagan earned him terminations papers and plank walk for his career. Saxe accepts Maclean’s offer to join the firm. Davis is a methodical character; Method Man.

Tommy is in-the-clear but is still jonesing to kill Tasha. He told Tariq that he would leave the family alone. His intentions aren’t true and ‘Riq senses as much and proactively alerts the FBI. They move in to take Tasha to safety at the cemetery just shy of Tommy making his move. As the law drove off Tommy approached ‘Riq to choke him but Monet showed up and hit him in the back of her head with her piece. Tommy turned around to address the issue but the issue wasn’t his to address. This moment was orchestrated by ‘Riq aka Ghost Jr.

Season 1 ends with Tasha and Tommy free to live all be it in different cities and definitely not in New York. New York is a Ghost Town and Tariq is the Deputy. Viva la Queen Monet and long-reign King Lorenzo.

Family first. Now that the St. Patrick’s are safe the Tejada’s and Baby Ghost can flourish and play. Or is it prey?
