Isn’t that your story? Isn’t that what you want it to be?
Good afternoon sweetheart, having it your way is key

….and it just so happens that I am she.
I am eager and ready for an afternoon release.

“Wooo-sah,” beloved. What’s happened in the day thus far?
You are the protagonist in this tale; you are the star.

Shall we meet at the bar? I’m having hot water and lemon.
What will you be sipping; live that quote by Russel Simmons,

and DO YOU, boo.
Me, I’ll have not one drink but a few.

After the lemon juice, I’ll likely have a shot followed by a Michelob Ultra Light.
Yeah, I’m big on socializing, but to be “saucy” is not my plight.

I can hold my liquor but can you endure the strength
that it takes to relax; like someone else has your rent?

Can you? Relax at this very moment by taking a deep breath.
And thank God for the moment; it’s life – not death

and nothing that you are doing will be the detriment of you.
Stay true to your values, your view, and DO YOU.

There’s that suggestion again. I’m like a leisure-pushing goon,
I’m Qui
Enjoying this moment with you; an Easy Monday Afternoon.

FILL IT OUT with me...
It’s whatever we want it to be.

 

Mercy Mercy – Its already THURS-D!

Good morning sweetheart, I’m on the run.
Last night was spent on editing fun.

Hard was the sleep that I just awoke from.
I’m an earlier bird when trying to beat the sun.

Lord: let today be filled with a whole lot of “yum-yum,” as in new creative business.
Let the university and those in parallel transit pique to bear witness.

Let my writing hand be of olympic fitness.
I am gratefully thankful to be so gifted.
AMEN.
He’s got the whole world in His hand…

and so onto a soap box I go
about ‘how the good of this day‘ will indeed be so.

Why not? If you ask me,
the last three days have been complete TRINITY.

I’m looking for THURSDAY to follow divine suit.
Mercy-Mercy! Let goodness be all over my literal fruit.

It will be and it is already so.
I choose to spend the first of my fruits with you, yo.

Good morning sweetheart. We are almost at the weekend,
I’m Qui
Up early for the reel; because the real is my friend.

THURSDAY is in progress as I speak.
Time flies when you’re having fun. Merci!

LIVE – New Content Creation

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows, Video on November 11, 2019 at 7:04 am

1_evil_cast.jpg

Those who blur their work and their play are indeed considered living masters.
Have you been watching CBS’s new series spelled LIVE – but pronounced backwards?

Did you ever see the 1985 film FRIGHT NIGHT? Do you remember the little side-kick weasel
who ran along-side the good-looking vampire? His character name was Ed “Evil.”

CBS’s new hit series starring Mike Colter, former actor of LUKE CAGE fun –
Is now administering to humanities fester; praying against “Society Becoming Numb.”

I recently found the series and its already 6 episode’s in.
I’ve quickly caught up to current broadcast; for I’m a DVR kin.

The matter therein broaches the topic of sin.
The content therein is an EXORCIST‘s friend.

It’s truly good stuff; it’s not a comedy but a discerning drama.
It won’t scare you to hell, but it may invoke you to call your Moma,

if you were raised like myself; I was raised in the church.
Differentiating spiritual from physical – the distinction never hurt.

It’s GOOD LIFE STUFF that you may need to know.
Give it a looks’y; comprehend it and grow.

Another breakout series on-the-rise is a distant relative to CBS’ show:
“HIS DARK MATERIALS” is the tale-title of a new fiction on HBO.

It stars a couple of young protagonists
who surely have NARNIA on their speed dial list. ‘

Have you seen it? It’s a tall glass of water to quench thirst
of anyone like me (and perhaps thee) who likes fictional firsts.

Theres an alethiometer on this show.
Introduce me to a new word — and there I go!

alethiometer_Dark-Materials

It’s a device used to LEARN THE TRUTH.
Fictional word says it’s Lyra’s… I say it’s my Aunt Ruth’s.

Do you remember my Aunt Ruth? She’s the fine one; quick-to-relate and hug ya.
She’s also the one who lived life in the bold; she’d no qualms with saying “fuck ya,”

if the truth was not in your voiced rendition.
Mike Acosta lacks the tool, but he has his “visions.”

Both EVIL and HIS DARK MATERIALS are new and budding shows.
Both have great content, tho, by their names you wouldn’t know.

I really can’t say why the title packaging is so obviously dark.
I suppose its the perfect cover to parallel the in-obvious stark.

I’m clearly into character composition; I’m also about non-obvious titles,
I’m Qui
Up early at this start of this week, because I dig avid watchers and show exciters.

WHO am I?
I’m WHO, the writer.

The POWER of a Mid-Series Finale

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows on November 6, 2019 at 9:35 am

Power_Opening_Title.jpg

 

Gimme got his neck broke messin’ with his kinfolk” and now folks are looking like “Who shot John and why?”

Have you ever heard either of those sayings?
They’re what folks in my community would say post a hood slaying.

Your name doesn’t have to be Gimme or John,
for you to act a fool and in the end, “get done.”

Gimme got his neck broke and John got shot.
Then the midseason of POWER Ghosted a drop.

Did you see the midseason finale?
There may be spoilers in this tally.

Let me start by saying that I have been pained every since this season began
knowing that I don’t have unlimited seasons with my scripted friends.

With a melancholy brow I buckled in at POWER’s begin
and invited the reality of ghosted karma to come in.

Walls closed in on Jamie St. Patrick from this season’s 1st Hour 
and the midseason finale was so fresh – that months later, it wont sour.

Tariq and his mother Tasha became a team – moving weight
out of her newly licensed and functioning day care space.

Yes child. You read that correctly.
Desperation so loud, each episode was deafening.

I remained tuned in and my tummy was consistently gripped
as Tommy grappled with heartbreak and put Ghost on his hit list.

tommy-eagan-power-Keishas-death.gif

Oh yes, and Tommy. Let me bring you up to speed.
Someone in his circle killed LaKeisha; a small circle of 3.

The circle consists of Tariq, Tasha and he.
Tommy is sure Ghost did it, but naw Keisha was smoked by a T.

Ha! Did you see that coming? Tasha paid Keisha an impromptu visit —
and assessed the luggage in her foyer to mean Keisha turned snitchett.

Keisha pulled a gun on Tasha, as if to threaten her with croak,
but Tasha took the gun from Keisha and Keisha got smoked.

It was brutal, I was heart broken. In her new home LaKeisha got “got.”
Tasha put one in her core, but the fatal blow was a head-shot.

Tommy was the person who found her body; he and Cash had picked out a ring…
Tommy walked into the foyer of his home and there on the floor, bled out his dreams.

Thus, his current mood towards Ghost; LaKeisha was his world.
Tommy thinks, surely this is Ghosts’ revenge, for killing his girl.

Angela Valdez showed up in the midseason finale, too, but gave us no hints
of how TRUTH would cash in on “the rent” — or how karma would be spent.

Ghosts-last-stand-Season6.jpeg

‘Ghost is unstoppable. No one can get in his way,’
at the top of the latter, like Caesar, he met his slay.

E tu Brute? — Well Brutus wasn’t there.
The person who smoked Ghost, was a person who used to care.
At the tube I did stare.

I love the scripted characters therein; this show is an exciter.
The powerful display of character composition is appreciated by this writer.

Ghost is a fighter. I can not say what is up nor what is down.
I did see Ghost fall from a 2nd story landing, but not hit the ground.

Marketing for the upcoming series reminds me of that old DALLAS line,
folks are saying “WHO SHOT GHOST“, like he’s JR – and all will be fine.

I DVR’d it and I did rewind.
The hole in Ghost’s chest looks “fatal co-signed.”

The reality in the series ending is also a metaphor for many other things.
For instance, if you’re in the drug business: karma is a boomerang. Ding-ding!

Perhaps an unlawful business isn’t a longevity scene.
Kudos to the POWER series production; your creativity is mean.

Talent yielded = Raw and clean.
Above and below the line: you all are beast.

power-cast-2.png

I look forward to your soon-enough return.
You’ve got folks out here talking about Ghosts’ burn.

A standing ovation to ya.’ Especially the way that you made us think this was the end,
only to close with a little note, that you’ll be back again.

Ahhhh. I do like the way that you do it,
I’m Qui
and no character is too righteous for you to say screw it.

The POWER of a Mid-Series Finale is quite the blow, yo!

Shame on SHAME

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on November 4, 2019 at 5:15 am

Shame-is-the-most-powerful-master-emotion.-It’s-the-fear-that-we’re-not-good-enough..png

Shame has quite the fame
even and especially when you don’t recognize its pain.

Many walk around carrying him on their back
because of a shortcoming; a moment of lack.

People hang their head for the hurt that they’ve caused,
like apologizing isn’t enough or that shame is the law.

It’s not true.
Plus no one can render shame upon you but you.

You, alone hold the torch for that.
If shame accompanies a gift — give it back.
You really don’t want that.

Shame mostly lives in your mind
and reflects onto others a hue not so kind.

That hue belongs to you and you alone.
When you exhibit shame you hang your dome.

I am here to say “leave shame alone.”
Ain’t nobody got time for those dry bones.

tom-jerry-spanking.gif

Proactive measures beat shame.

Craniums hanging low isn’t fashionable or word.
Shame is an emotion; beat it with a verb.

Stand erect and walk to the mirror,
clear your throat so that you’re clearer

and say, “that thing that exists – I own it complete.
Shame: You’re too lame to paint my life weak.”

Say it as often as necessary, especially before facing the crew
that is known in the past to laugh and shame you.

Most people do not seek to convey or invoke shame.
Shame is an easy bi-product of the lower integrity lane.

I imagine that you probably already knew that.
Now use wisdom as a rod; put shame to a bat.

Shame on shame. I tell you, it is not ‘what’s up’ or word.
I’m Qui
Shame is an emotion; beat it with a verb.

Ya’ heard?

Do I need to complete the words to the phrase?
Good morning kinfolk, and what’s up LA?

Good morning California. I’m up early thinking about you.
I’m going to be Missy for Halloween, how about you be moist dew?

I am really respectful of Mother Earth; she’s pretty dry right now.
I know C-A’s hate the relocate. But you just may have to anyhow,

before it’s too late
and all of the good quality air has gone away.

Please don’t wait. Time is not yours to call when it comes to Mother Earth.
Don’t be like those in the past who were consumed by her fiery girth.

Some people waited around as if they had it on good authority
that “the fire will consume others but not mine or me.”

Many of them are not here with us today.
Cali is doing its thing and with you, – it does not play.

It’s imperative that you get out of its way,

The hills are on fire and more is destined in its wake.

Cali isn’t the only place that’s on fire.
The White House is blazing with no sign of retire.

A massive legal team must be employed or very soon hired.
This Fall is in the business of supporting horror fires.

Washington, DC is a very heated-up place,
still there’s a whole lot of love in these ‘here states.

Allow my country grammar to draw you in;
allow common sense and honesty to commence.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
and if you’re in Cali or the W-H:

Let it go, let it go, let it go.

Don’t worry about your connections; I beg of thee to only consider your life.
I’m Qui
Wanting the best for thee; flee energetic and tangible fires like they’re a spit-ire wife.

Ire is something that no one likes.
Let’s live mindful to subdue the heat of this spike.

Monday is a fine day to make a new decision
to do good to others; utilize vision.

Move in a positive direction. Do it for you.
Monday is a fine day to do what you want to.

I woke up early excited to do me.
Doing-for-self will always be key.

How’s your health and how’s your diet looking?
Are you still eating fast food or at home cooking?

Me? I can do better; let the scale be my proof,
so today for lunch we’ll all be doing JAMBA JUICE.

Oui-oui-oui,
lunch is on me!

Monday is a fine day to care for the lot of.
I’m Qui
feeling nice about thee. Let’s start this week off with a hug.

BRING IT IN
and don’t forget to repent for your sins.

God understands and loves us – it’s okay for us to talk to him too.
That’s really all He’s ever wanted from lil’ ol’ me and you.

Honestly, He’s always given us much, much more.
Monday is a fine day to put-in-on a dimensional high-score.

Leaders Move Forward

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on October 25, 2019 at 2:13 pm

Representive Elijah Cummings.gif

Left, left, left-right-left; whose leading?
Plates are being fixed, but tell me who’s eating?

Leaders take the time to do and re-do head counts.
When they stumble or fall, they’re quick on the bounce.

Leaders Move Forward; we don’t stop or look back.
Leaders push on through, eating a diet of facts.

What’s on our united plate today is Elijah Cummings home-going.
We’ve got a few greats on the stage recalling his life and seed-sowing.

Reminding America:
that our unity can be fairer.

Leaders prompt those who follow to be encouraged and stay up-beat.
Leaders march with other leaders for CIVIL RIGHTS in the street.

The sky was the congressman’s limit – he insisted to press upwards.
Elijah Cummings is the definition of a LEADER MOVING FORWARD.

Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama graced the home-going stage to say farewell.
The funeral looked-like a feel good place; attendants sat in love for a spell.

What a sell of unity. I miss the feeling across the country.
Let Elijah be a reminder to us all, that life doesn’t have to be lumpy

all of the time.
Unite a little more and enjoy the sunshine.

A collection of good energy towards a specific issue is what Leaders harvest and use
to face the dangers of the world, resolve them, and secure protections for me and you.

I appreciate all of the presidents of the past who have led us safely to this point.
I feel pretty groovy about Elijahs home-going being a love-united joint.

Life is great for those of us who are still in it.
Let us use our life force to forge relationship in love and win this!

I’m down with it. Heck!  I been down with you,
I’m Qui
and it’s Friday y’all, let me spring for a cocktail or two.

It’s on me.
Leaders pay first – when they lead. 😛

And so

Mick gave us his word, before his word was dead.
That’s when I stood up to clarify the moment and said:

oh-no-he-didnt_DamanWayansJr.gif

But he did. He took back what he said 5-hours prior
when the press corp was in the room and he had the floor.

Weird moments in time have been popping back up
since the media started rewinding “honesty cuts.”

You know, “honesty cuts?” That’s when someone has a moment of clarity
and blurts out the whole-hearted truth then pretends it was all parody.

You gotta be kidding me! And so I just thought I’d mention
what is constant reality in this era’s indention.

It’s an integrity issue and it keeps on happening —
“honesty cuts” show up before faux-talking-point dampening.

Why?
What does it cost you to live a big lie?

I wouldn’t know.
The “lie-laden route” is one I don’t go.

And so today my integrity is in check but not my Vertigo.
I woke up yesterday morning thinking I was on a boat.
Do you know Vertigo?

It’s a relative to TMJ so here I go.
I got this though.

It will not keep me from chatting it up with you.
It will not delay me from honesty and spilling the truth.

As sure as my beloved Aunt’s name is Ruth,
honesty and integrity should rank out-the-roof.

Put no ceiling on that, kinfolk.
And pray for those who lack its show.

Leadership qualities are the bombs and so
I’m eating up the course that’s on my degreed to-and-fro.
It’s a must, yo.’

Good morning kinfolk. What-it-look-like outside?
Are you up for the challenge? Are you down to ride?

If so, I’ll step off of this boat that dubs as Vertigo,
I’m Qui
accepting nothing in my way that keeps me from play, and so

Yee Doggy

Life. Paddle through it.

I once had a friend named Cheryl who was married to a dude named Bobby.
They were from Wichita Falls and to ‘be country‘ was more than hobby.

When Cheryl would come-up on something good she didn’t have to call me,
I’d hear her boisterous-stereo-lungs yelling “Yee Doggy.”

I’m from Dallas, Texas originally, and Cheryl was an implant.
Today I’m the guest in a foreign land and of good energy – I must vent.

Yee Doggy!

Today is Friday and this week has been quite the spinner.
From Monday to this very moment karma has been eating dinner.

Where are Cheryl and Bobby today? I miss them dearly.
She gave and received big energy like mine; thus she never feared me.

Folks:  Today is one of those days where the time is yours right now
to do what you want, say how you feel, and still be loved anyhow.

I love you.
Yee doggy!
Do you love me back?
Karma is a boomerang-girl eating more than a snack.
Did you see that?

Anytime is a good time to recognize your bad,
change your tone and be  a calibrated lad.

Gas, break. Gas, break. If you feel you have to.
Yee Doggy comes up when you find your groove.

Enjoy your life; you have the capacity to make it smooth.
I’m doing me and looking forward to you doing you.

Life is best when you live it in truth.
Don’t sacrifice your life for others who are not FOR you.

Be yourself. To rep someone else is to be funky.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Yee Doggy! Be a lover of your country.
