SURELY

In Communication, Griot, News, Video on November 22, 2020 at 5:00 am

ometimes – if you let it,
The world will take your happiness & tell you to “forget it!”

Forfeit pessimistic energy and seek not to go that route
then go back to the beginning of what your journey’s about:

You are the principle and Christ paid your full dowry
when he gave His life – just for you – on Calvary.

So SURELY You & I —  We — can lift Him up in praise
As Richard Smallwood & company lead the melodic way….

Don’t let the world take your happiness, your joy or your smiles.
Be prayerful and mindful to celebrate the miles,

To celebrate the moments and all that you’ve come through,
I’m Qui 
A spiritual being on a natural journey – just like you.

If doubt has you on the outs
Pray yourself through
God is still on your side and He loves you too.

Surely.

The Way Things Are Shaking Out

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on November 20, 2020 at 4:32 am
Come on lil fella – shake a tail.

Good morning, good looking. How are you today? What time did you wake up? Did you kneel and pray?

I sure hope so, because today holds a lot. If Friday isn’t your payday, you probably aren’t looking for squat.

But you should be. The fact that you are alive is key.

Vibrate higher. Be a composer of good and then be a sire.

Good morning, good looking. How’s it shaking? If doing good isn’t 1st nature to you – get to faking.

Jit-up good intent until it’s authentically you. Allow today to ‘shake-out a much better hue.

Days until 2021? We still have a few. Good morning, good looking. What will 2021 bring through?

I’d rather focus on next week and compose a plan to cut-short covid19 jeers. 2020 has been blurry, hate-plentiful & in a hurry; I pray for change for next year.

The way it’s shaking out right now, the President-Elect Joe Biden is still on the runway, — awaiting his taxi into the WHITE HOUSE, but no welcome has been composed for the relay.

I wish it weren’t true, I truly wish things were at a different sum. I wish that the current administration would concede and then welcome.

I wish that Americans who didn’t get their choice of President-Elect would take patriotic form — and support the winners of the 2020 election and voice their hurt in a poem.

It’s what I did four years ago when Hillary Clinton was denied — her rightful place as the popular-vote winner, before decency died.

I was hurt, and I cried. Then I stood up and marched on. —  I wrote a poem with no alarm and continued to support America; home.

It’s what’s we do when things don’t shake-out the way that we want them to. We pick ourselves up and pray for safe passage to make it through.

Give ol’ Sulk-a-lot the boot. I did it 4-years back — now you can too.

We’re Americans; we unite. It’s just what we do. We calibrate for unity — democracy rules.

Vote recounts have gone-on in a couple of states, perhaps even a few. We’re Americans; we unite, and we accept reality’s truths.

The way that things have shaken-out this year… they have yielded us plenty. It’s been fun. Thank God we’re almost done. I look forward to Jan. 20.

What are your thoughts? What good will today toss-up or bring about?

I’m Qui

True to the red, white, and blue — even when in doubt about: “The Way Things Are Shaking Out”.

Be SHAMELESS

about UNITY.

HOW TO Arrest This Mess

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Science, Self Improvement, Video on November 13, 2020 at 4:45 am
It’s doing circles around us…

State-after-state in the USA sends up SOS signals, asking for help. Over-burdened medical facilities threaten medical professional’s health.

The COVID tally is rising, and people are still dying. I am sure that we can do better. Word is — things will be getting worse as we deal with colder weather.

Are you ready, kinfolk? It’s time for us all to do our part. “Don a mask and wash your hands” — it’s time to live smart.

TRUE STORY:

Once upon a time, I thought I was in a life-threatening rut; I had just descended from a water slide and didn’t realize I needed to “stand up.”

As I sat on my butt doing the drowners yell, my guy shouted out, “you don’t need any help! Just stand up, 5’3 — and all will be well.”

He was correct. The water was closer to ankle than neck.

I just needed to open my eyes to realize — that I was taller than the waters 12″ rise.

So, I opened my eyes, and yep, he was right. I just stood up and didn’t lose my life.

The moral of the story is:

America: Open your eyes and stand the frack up! COVID is 12″ of water, and we are sitting on our butt.

Let’s not cause more of a spectacle than we already have; the world is watching, and we look ill-bad. Let’s wash our hands and don a mask.

Perhaps it sounds better when celebrities ask:

Protecting self is something that we all can do. Let’s mask-up until COVID is f#@ked — then we won’t have to.

I’m all in, I’m all in! I miss my family and friends. I’m all in because I want this era of isolation to end.

To mask-up is to win. Oh! And always wash your hands.

Keep hand sanitizer on-you even after we’re on the mend. Clean hands across the land will always be “in.”

Right? Let’s not give this disease any more sunlight. If you can decipher wrong from right, I’m going to ask you to join the human race fight. “Don a mask and wash your hands” — ’tis is my longevity plight.

My plight reads like a motto that needs adopting,

I’m Qui

My plight is a motto that every American should be copping

Clarity

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Politics on November 11, 2020 at 5:15 am

The people cried foul; they knew the tally was not right. They prayed before voting, then poll-voiced their plight. But their votes went unprotected like valuables outside at night. The elect didn’t originate from Vegas, but there were hands of sleight.

On November 3, 2016 the world knew that a new resident was slated to move-in. More news after electoral views stated “the new rez’s wouldn’t be  the Clinton’s.”

The voting public had a clue but then electoral tallies were shy. The faith that Hillary had in the popular vote tab – on that night, it died.

Honesty and civility were missing; it had been tightly tucked away.

No one has explained why, yet. Perhaps for signed NDA’s?

Might there be a lure at play? Folks march lock-in-step when they are paid.

Pockets-lined rule the day; pockets lined stay fat.

Could it be “the moola/money?” Someone may be looking into that.

Factually, I do not know a thing, but little else makes sense. Who destroys their reputation for anything less than the rent?

Americans usually do not sell-out. Power invokes integrity-sour and humans break character for clout.

It isn’t ever worth it to be evicted or to go to court — when you could just be “a resident-complying sport.”

I am so glad that President 44 left the house — with head upright; no whiney mouse.

I’m so glad that President 43 did it, too. — ‘Tis a trend also held by President 42.

American civility held a world-class record; others aspired to beholden — as a city shining on a hill. The implication was “democracy golden.”

Those were the days and those days were back when… just moments before  the 2016 election was stolen.

Do you remember that? Who’d have thought — that the American election could be stolen or bought?

Not many ever thought it or fathomed, until the year 2016 when it all happened.

Few will soon forget that an election was stolen just 4-years ago,

I’m Qui

in the name of civility, the one with the least votes should go.

Congratulations America

In Communication, News, Politics on November 7, 2020 at 7:21 pm

We know that we’ve got a long row to hoe — with President-Elect Joe. 

We are connected — and the UNITY of America got him elected.

 

We are happy. We are happy. We are happy indeed.

The nation is on a high and we aren’t smoking weed,

 

although it was on the ballot for several states and passed in a few.

The happiness that we are basking in – right now, is because of you two:

 Joe Biden & Kamala Harris 

Congratulations to the voting citizens. THANK YOU for coming through.

Congratulations America; you are a fairer ‘her and the world still loves you.

 

I love you! The future loves you, and if you didn’t vote for the Biden Harris ticket,

that’s okay, they love you anyway. You’re an American! Our love is the thickest.

Good Love.

Being That

In education, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on November 2, 2020 at 6:32 am

Being that today is poised with anticipation, I’ve taken to writing, because tomorrow is election day and the electric vibe is exciting.

It could prove that American love abides; the states are united. Today is pre-election day and to be honest, I’m kind of excited.

I feel like Elizabeth Banks – remember her from HUNGER GAMES? Her skills contort like no other in any sort. I love her capacity frame:

And like Elizabeth I, too have voted, so tomorrow I’ll be rooting for you —- to go to the poll, may angel’s cover your soul while you vote on behalf of your truths.

Being that the hour is early where I am, I think I’ll make me a cup a jo. —But then again, anxiety rides caffeine like a yo-yo. So…

Maybe not this morn…

Perhaps “Tennessee Pride  and an egg that’s fried” is my next production born.

Would you care to join me? How do you like your eggs? — Tell me, are you well? What thoughts are in your head?

My thoughts have been all over the place; creative synapses are winning. Being that I’m not rich yet, my POC’s represent multiple beginnings.

A POC is a Proof of Concept – it’s what you draft when you have a story idea. A lot of the time, I make conception notes in rhyme and nestle the DNA right here.

It’s so much fun to do.  — Nestled-notations is something I’m into.

Notes keep me on track; idea harvesting is true.  — Nothing pleases me more than crafting a score after kicking thoughts with you.

Being that I just shared my POC/griot seed-sowing tendencies with you, care you to share a cool and unknown with me about your own truths?

I’m a writer, I am down to listen.  New content is born from your relative mentions,

— my creative soul defaults in a position to receive.  Creating content is as natural as my ability to breathe.

I am grateful and truly thank God for this.  — To always relate and communicate is my purposeful wish.

Being that I am nearing 400-words on this griot peace — I digress once more; composition retreat.

I just couldn’t bear not-checking-in with thee,

I’m Qui

God speed to all that is good and is destined for “we.”

Tomorrow is election day. Please do not sleep.

Solid Definitions – No Wood

In Comedy, Communication, dance, education, Griot, News on October 28, 2020 at 8:28 am

Word play can be woodsy work. I’m attracted to words and so I flirt. When I’m being bad with words, I’m really good. I render solid definitions – no wood. 

After researching thoroughly; fast forward & rewind, — the orator could not help but to tarry and opine.

After Dawn and Dan broke up, we thought everything was fine, —but then Dan spent the last 3 months stuck on rewind and repine.

Connect yourself to all that is good.
Is there an olive branch springing up in your hood?

Research what you don’t know to clarify things; make plain/understood,
Words are words; adjectives, nouns, and verbs, and pine is just wood.

Laugh at the obvious often. Laugh at clues once you have found them,
I’m Qui
Humping words with thee; they can elongate an understanding or grossly alter them.

Clarity:

What’s the word for this verb?

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.

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.
