What’s that in your mouth? Is it a word, cheer or loom?
What exactly is that in your mouth as it pertains to food?

We should all care – now, more than ever.
I found this handy FDA notification site to be clever:

It’s a live notification to the consumer crowd
heralding what the FDA cautions you to not put in your mouth.

Check it out.

Did you hear about our current lettuce stall?
Well, on romaine lettucethere’s been a recall.

Ex-nay on the alad-say, today I’m going Jamba Juice.
Good morning Friday! Aren’t you a high day? I look forward to our paletable produce.

So much is going on in the news…
My mouth hung agape during my recent peruse.

I’m not sure if I want to delve too deep in it…
White House Aids are talking — each one named Bennett…

It’s becoming increasingly hard to spin it and make the details sound mundane.
God bless America and God bless our governmental frame.

What is that in your mouth? Do you need a can? Are you a spitter?
If you find your throat full of grote please don’t take to Twitter.

God blessAmerica.

May we enjoy today, each and everyone.
In the name of life, let go of strifes
live full and have fun.

I am and especially today.
I’ll dance, drink, be merry and eat
on Fridays I yield to play.

What about you? What have you got planned for the weekend slot?
Thinking of doing nothing at all? At that thought – I think not.

Time is non-refundable, this year is yours and you are what it’s all about!
I’m Qui
Cheering on WE, to have more fun, learn to love everyone and be mindful of whats going in and coming out of our mouth.

It matters.

The prospect of 2018

2017 was pretty good to me…
My dad crossed over in May, day three.

My youngest kid moved out by the month of three
and then I enrolled into college for a new degree.

I’ve grown a lot.
How could I not?

I know that you duly understand.
As I’ve gone through this year you’ve literally held my hand.

Thanks for that.

Via this years NEWS PERUSE
I’ve taken to task political issues.
I’ve expressed myself and shared my views.
I asked for more feedback — and heard back from you.

Again, Thank you.

You’ve kept it real in coming through and supporting this scene.
I bid you a productive and successful 2018.

As this year closes-out I am ridding myself of very little.
I’m Qui
Thankful to God for all that I’ve got including the melancholy in the middle.

Now let’s celebrate the future – BIG time and for yesterday – play the tiniest fiddle.

Humping A Good Time

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on December 27, 2017 at 12:04 pm

late-to-riseToday I’m up slow.
I’ve enjoyed a long weekend, yo.
I’ve enjoyed my family that visited from out of town.
They’re here for a few more minutes until they’re flight bound.

They’ve got to get back to Texas.
I thank God for the wings of AA that connect us.

And now it’s back to school and work.
I checked my student email to info-flirt
and found therein, new news
on January 4th – I’ve an assignment due.

Do what? Are they serious? It’s true, the task of learning never quits.
I ain’t mad and there will be no assignment gaps. School? I really love it.

I hope the holidays were good for you. I hope that new love has been birthed.
I had a blast! Laser tag with the fam was a gas and a great way to burn girth.

What did you do during your Christmas break? Did you wear yourself out?
Did you eat, live carefree and have to let your britches out?

I did all of the above.
I hugged, laughed, gave & received lots of love.

It was a good time had.
I’ll hit the gym to deflate the abs.

I’ll curb my diet from the festive eats.
I’ll re-ease the tension where my button and clasp meet.

It’s Hump Day baby and we are midway through the last week of the year,
I’m Qui
Humping a good time with thee. For anytime we meet yields me cheer.

Yep. I stayed up late last night and woke up early today.
I’m merry, I’m happy and vow to put very little on my plate. 🙂

Hey-ey! It’s true. This is a very merry day indeed.
I’m over here clowning with family — I call them the Beloved WE.

And so you see, I was also thinking about you.
The Cowboys lost yesterday and I’m still silver and blue.
You already knew!
Win or Lose – WE gotta stay true.

That’s why I’m always thinking about you.
Staying true is what I do.

Amidst all of the love, gift giving and play,
I had to dart off and hit you with the Word of The Day:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, to you o’ internet fam. You are always a gift to me,
I’m Qui
Loving on you – is what I do, the knowledge of – is no mystery.
Thanks for stopping by and digging me.

A Cold NEWS PERUSE

In News on December 22, 2017 at 7:34 am

As sure as today ends the squeeze of the work week claw,
tell me how YOU really feel about the reform of our tax law.

Congress doesn’t love you – that is reserved for your kids and your moma.
Nor do you have that healthcare system that was put in place by Obama.

Well — to be honest, it’s not completely repealed but it is being rolled back and away.
I suppose we’re reverting to yesterday when filling emergency rooms ruled the day.

Child, I do say – things are looking a little odd in this country.
The mass praising of the president via his cabinet – is super funky.

It looks wickedly wonky and lacks leadership appeal.
Perhaps the President secretly wants to be Kim Jun Ill?
Going for the dictator feel?

The view of our new uphill makes me wish I was richer.
The new tax reform has the charm of a boa constrictor.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. who voted for these new tax cuts:
Have a Very merry Christmas – I hope you get plenty of heel crust.

May the hustlers on Wall Street who helped the stock market to spike
reap an in the red 2018 for those hands of sleight.

This administration has done nothing to warrant such stock market strength.
Those tax cuts are for Wall Street thugs — the WH owes them rent.

And so on the citizens back this reforms is spent.
Our children will foot the bill and hence

they are rising up and voicing their vote
while we protest and keep our foot on thier throat.

Woah, woah, woah. Please pardon me.
I’m reading headlines and recalling history.

What is happening today is no mystery.
I suggest we all stand and press against misery.

Vote.

Midway Through

Qui_Dec19_2017Midway Through, I start to realize the weekend isn’t very far.
I’ve got a flight to catch tomorrow to celebrate – no sorrow,
for in Texas we’ve birthed a new star.

My niece married late last year and is wrapping up year one
with the birth of a son.; proof of their love – productive fun.

I’m so proud of her.
She carried that baby with very little girth.

Me? I’m just showing up in Texas to be Auntie Qui.
Christmas with distant family is what makes it merry.

New life is sweet. Puberty is tricky
and then in comes the teen years — 👉🏾 things get washy & wish’y.

Our 20’s are grand; invincibility is ours.
Our 30’s gift us with insightful powers.

cool-cat-cat_in_the_hat.jpgOur 40’sI’m in them, brings with it peace and blessings.
I’m a much smoother cat. I resolute stressing.

I meditate and pray and then I chat it up with you.
The 40’s are a party; yielding clarity to pick & choose.

Midway Through I’m starting reflect and look back…
I’m standing in this moment as a real cool cat.

I’m enjoying life, I am enjoying you.
I’m a soul observing and I’m enjoying the view.

We’re Midway Through this week and Christmas is in a few days,
I’m Qui
Really enjoying WE — and just wanted to drop in and say “Hey.”

Today is gonna be a great day!
Go forward, be your best person – – right after you kneel and pray.

ISO more peace? You’ll find it in spades when you meditate.

Camels HUMP

A new camel.

Doug Jones humped-up on a win last night.
A-L dispelled any hint of disconnect in sight.

It was a pretty tight race. I tuned in and out.
I woke up this morning to hear Alabamians shout:

WE HAVE COLLECTIVELY CHOSEN DOUG JONES!
I know many voted otherwise – I don’t think that you’re wrong.

Though I’m glad we’re turning a new corner in this reality song.
We’re looking at things differently – perhaps our unity is still strong.

We are all Americans and we are our best when we stick together.
It’s good to reveal we prefer to heal – still birds of the same feather.

survivor-torch extinguished.jpg

Alabama has a new Jones.

As the cold weather moves into atmosphere, o’ isn’t it clever
that we would find warmth in decency and voting together.

Congratulations Alabama for speaking up and showing face
and proving to the rest of the world that you, alone will call your fate.

Today is a beautiful day. We all woke up alive.
Viva la Hump Day. I’m happy to embrace the Jones vibe.

Virginia started something; it’s a reckoning and it’s loud.
I’m Qui
Happy about it – oui! To be  an American, I’m feeling proud.

kerry-washington-yay-coffeeThis Morning Jo is good to me —
Not that early morning broadcast on MSNBC. 🙂

It’s strong, it’s dark, robust and sweet...
The perfect point for sleep and wake to meet.

I’m awake, sitting bedside with my feet touching the flo.’
I’m sipping and dipping — watching Morning Joe.

The news has been known to blow; yet journalist are clocking it.
Like a reality show on VH1 or  Bravo – I’m tuned in and watching it.

It’s real, our reality… it’s how I start the day.
It’s also strengthening my faith – the news yields me to pray.

I say, “Amen,” stand, and go on my way.
Internally and mentally – I’m ready for the day.

I take my jo
everywhere that I go,
until I’ve sipped the last drop.

I’m kind to everyone I meet
to and fro in the street;
Acknowledging your spirit – never stops!

It’s what I do! I’m a Leo – Yo!
I’m Qui
With early morning intimacy between Me, You and Jo.

ALABAMA: This week you vote. Which way will you go?

Wind in these sails

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on December 7, 2017 at 5:46 am

wind-in-sailboatSo I’ve gone back to school and taken on quite the load.
I’m comparing each new lobe-wrinkle obtained to a brick of gold.

Learning is the route to the fountain of youth.
It feels good to learn new topics and their truths.

I’m submerging myself into the full learning process.
A little less contemplating & debating a whole lot more: YES.

I’m stepping out of my comfort zones, slowly but surely.
I’m trusting my instincts, shaping and branding my property.

You’d think I’d know these things by now.
I’d like to think ‘when it comes to media producing – I’m the cat’s meow!

But I don’t.
I move at will, and if I don’t get “the feel” – – I won’t.

The feel,” that I speak of is that feeling in my gut.
The feeling is strong; it doesn’t lead me wrong –
and while it is important, there’s a science to WHAT’S UP.

In this core course I am learning the science of creative presentation.
I am gathering new tools to further use in my future conveyance.

You and I are going to have so much fun playing! Tomorrow is looking good.
I’m studying Digital Cinematography. I want to shoot your hood.

Actually, I’m more of a writer, director and producer,
though when it comes to unlocking brain capacity – I’m a juicer!

How could more knowledge hurt?
I’m attracted to learning – with a full class load, I flirt.

And even though I’m out here having fun and mingling along the way,
please don’t think that I don’t think about you everyday.

Often times I clear the passengers seat, before my days charted run
just in case you want to tag along and ride a la shotgun.

Yeah, that would be fun. In the meantime I’m on my school grind,
but the week would be weak if I didn’t drop a few griot lines:

The Wordcloud Art is in the shape of an upwards arrow and encompasses this text:

Qui is Who, I love you, be encouraged & be strong, see things as different & not-wrong, open your mind & heart, each new day is a new start, follow your heart & manifest your dreams, sew a great story – hem up your seams, eat your vegetables & exercise your body, you are a hit – I love your spirit – you’re a hottie!

Yes, I’ve missed you. I truly have.
Let the wind blow through your hair, be sure to stop and laugh.

Hug someone today regardless of who needs it more.
You or them? Good karma is a good reason to score.

Good morning sweetheart, I pray the day does treat you swell.
