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.

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.

Entering the change…

In Griot, News, Politics, Video on November 8, 2017 at 4:51 am

Theme music for today

Did you hear Joe Buddens PUMP IT UP song booming from your neighbors house last night? If so, that’s because Virginia and New Jersey showed up and showed out.

It’s not Friday night but you cannot tell by the way my neighbors were wielding out last night after hearing that the country isn’t as doomed as it seemed.

The college educated suburbs in VA showed up and had something to make clear; they had something to say.
New Jersey came in on that same Democratic horse and up on hind legs insisted they came to play.

Welcome back kinfolk. You were missed.
Though I admit I’m gonna miss Chris.

Remember Hurricane Sandy
when he and Obama were dandy?

I enjoyed that hug.
I appreciated Chris giving up the love.

So, yeah I’m going to miss him and his snarky filled, sarcastic-ridden speech.
But not as much as Chris missed the crowds the day he closed down the beach.

jon-stewart-chair-danceYeah. It’s all good.
This morning NJ has a new Governor in their hood.

There are many across the country who are starting this day off with a smile
after realizing the country may be waking up; marking a new mile.

Me? Sure, I’m happy. I’m an energy lover who thrives on what’s in the air.
Right now happyis spilling over and I feel it in my toes and my hair.

Woo, I’m surrounded! There’s a feeling of giddiness in my solar plexus and I’m ready to play!
Entering the change that can propel us from lame is the perfect hump to ride on this day.

Jump atop of it and co-mingle with the person next to ya. Yield them a smile.
I’m Qui
excited to write that visceral hate isn’t the vibe and quite happy to walk a new mile.

Awake

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics on November 6, 2017 at 6:43 am

A good nights sleep, the feeling of safety, a good time being had in public, or a barrelling laugh —
Seem to all be indications of the American Dream from the past. Yesterday is fading fast.

The blind vie for political positions
and are voted in, in the name of “party tradition.”

Tradition used to indicate that a cadidate was sharp, groomed and vetted to serve.
Today tradition is gone away and taken with it the strength of our forefathers word.

The people feel less secure, many are leaning towards scared.
Folks are unsure about tomorrow, if their 401K’s will be there.

The 2016 presidential candidate, (now prez) said while on the campaign roam
that he could protect you from harm. Him and hm, alone.

After what happened yesterday at First Baptist Church in Sutherland, Texas
“More safe” is not the repeated feeling that connects us.

26 people were shot and killed in church.
15-20 others were injured and hurt.

Gun regulation talks are not on the table or amidst
and the white guy who killed 26 isnt called a terrorist.


The president nor the media are able to say.
However, had he been tan — “send him to Guantanemo Bay.”

News Flash: If someone is threatening folk with a gun, a running car or a large stick
and kills people in his wake – he is called a terrorist.

Still the prez spoke yesterday and did not fail to miss
labeling yesterdays white male killer “a terrorist.”

The prez also said (earlier) that he, himself, ‘had a good brain’
but can’t remember how his administration got in this Russia thang.’

Or what Wilbur Ross is doing. He’s too old to be a theft chameleon.
He’s our commerce secretary whose personally hoarding billions.

George Papadopoulos is still sitting in the hot heat
while the white house doubles down on, “Who is he?”

Michael Flynn and son should be on the run from all that glitters,
they are under possible indictment and should stay off of twitter.

Please dont be bored about this. Please do stay awake.
Everything going on today puts your future at stake.

The dude from that reality show whose in the white house is an Apprentice with no skill.
You better vote or bear more yoke – today’s law is tomorrows continued ills.

Wake up and get real. This is not field day and we are not on teams.
We are Americans at heart, in goodwill, good deeds and good seams.

Good morning goodness. I’m obviously on the up-take.
Im Qui
shaking your shoulder a bit. Can you hear me? Are you AWAKE?

Picking with the P

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on October 31, 2017 at 4:38 am

At The Pumpkin Patch with my little Pea.

Happy Halloween to ya! Ye ol’ curve is rising; today is deemed the day of pre-hump.
Nothing is scarier or hairier than having worked on the campaign of Trump.

Mondays indictment dump put a slump in a few of the former campaign kin.
I don’t know the score, but God bless Paul Manafort – with him the arrests have began.

Then BOO! It’s Halloween, folks are dressing up, (some in costume & such) and heading off to work.
The world continues to turn while the futures of former campaign-heads burn with an uncertain flirt.

Such intense scrutiny on ones life has got to spirit-hurt. So I shan’t dance on their bad.
I actually feel for Manafort,  Papadopoulos and Gates.  Human compassion. No laugh.

We’re all human. We all make mistakes.
Sometimes, in life, we over stack our plates.

And then we get a tummy ache; some may even feel like you have to poo.
That’s usually once you’ve been served and you know the po-po is coming for you.

‘Tis TRUE.

p-is-for-pumpkin.gif

Pick and choose your battles and may your burdens be light.
Think about what you’re doing and how it will affect your life.

Who deserves what? And who are we to judge?
What would you say if I said the purported 3 could use a hug?

Pardon? Do what?
You don’t feel like participating in a hug?

Understood. jack-o-latern-pumpkin.jpg

Therefore, I won’t go so far as to send the aforementioned any flowers,
but I will lend compassionate vibes as I’m sure others are sending sour.

Today I am glad we are cautiously approaching the hump.
Today I am glad my name wasn’t in the indictment dump.

Today I am glad that we have a calendar day
where we can dress up and do a little fantasy play.

Ahem. Well, I do it often – it’s just what I do.
I’m sure you’ve seen me change my hair color a time or two.

I’ll never forget (a decade ago) I was dressed, out and about in February thinking I was looking cool,
When I overheard a couple of kids say, “I wonder who she’s dressed as,” – while I was visiting my kids school.

letter-p-variations.jpg

Pick a P…

Now, I was not a part of an assembly nor were the kids putting-on a shady front.
My top hat and heels just reminded the kids of a profile within Black History month.

So help me God, they truly and honestly thought
that my daily gear was stage-worthy and costume bought. jack-o-latern-pumpkin.jpg

So, I suppose I could dress up today as a Black History icon.
I can be me – from yesterday. Oui! Yesterday was pleasant and fun.

However, interest in reliving yesterday – I have none. I’ll dress as a sexy vixen.
I’ll be a domestic house bunny, with greens, cornbread and other nutritious fixens.

It’s an easy outfit to conquer. What do you think?
Of course, I’ll also have candy and Proseco to drink.

Today is a day of pretend. I am totally down – in complete fashion!
I’m Qui
I’ll be portraying a fantasy of partying at the Playboy Mansion.

I’m thinking about it…

Don’t skimp on the Ponder.

It’s coming from the top

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics on October 23, 2017 at 7:18 am
simpsons-roll-downhill

Rolling downhill…

From the head to the tail; the top to the bottom
When it came to the brightest minds – Washington, DC got ’em.

That was then
before the 2016 WH win.

Citizens were trolling the streets and facebook alike
sporting bumper stickers and memes to VOTE for a lie.

The citizens who voted for Drumpf [Trump]
stand up and get off of your rump,

Proudly raise your hands so that we can all be reminded
the crap that we’re in — you voted for and co-signed it.

You got behind it: the lies and daily disgust —
and said “emails were certain hell;” its Drumpf or bust!

All credit goes to you ‘hand raiser.’ Remember you were happy to shout it!
The man in the WH is not well at all. What are you going to do about it?

I’m asking you because he has no idea how to run the Government, how to console Gold Star families or cut one tax.
He’s in there picking his nose and stretching his throat, not governing but taking twitter to task.

I digress and pass on painting a bigger picture. T’is not my favorite.
Though my heart is still broken for the widow of Sgt. LaDavid.

myeshia-johnson-says-goobye

Sgt. LaDavid Johnsons widow Myeshia Johnson

LaDavid Johnson’s wife, Myeshia is pregnant, heart broken and comprehension sour
She just has questions about LaDavid having been missing for 48-hours.

His body returned home, inside of a closed casket.
Myeshia wanted to see him, but got no answer when she asked it.

It’s unfortunate that this soldier’s family is on blast like that
and it doesn’t help that the prez is divisive and that the Johnsons are black.

It’s just not a good look. It looks like disrespect on one side.
It looks like Myeshia is a Gold Star family member – LaDavid lost his life.

It’s what it looks like — and she’s carrying new life. I call that “legacy word.”
It looks like she’s going to have a world-of-a-story to share with her pending boy or girl.

Fall is in the air
it’s in my hair —
I prefer things to be fairer than they are.

I like life so much,
I’ve calibrated my own touch
I’m #MindfullyLiving and leading the charge.

Are you mindful of what you’re doing everyday? Are you mindful of your life?
Is your mind really strong, can you tell right from wrong? How do you feel about lies?

Ask yourself some basic questions then calibrate, meditate and pray.
I really need your good energy and help to overcome what’s happening today.

The N. Koreans are pissed, the Paris Accord was so yesterday and we are not done shifting lack —
The WH head is ready to put us in the red as he hangs job stability in lieu to cut tax.

Again, Drumpf supporters where are you now?
Are you in the middle class? Lock up the family cow.

cash-cow-dollar-cut-out.jpgIs your milk stored in a 401K, wallstreet or in an account?
Less than $1000 dollars is the average Americans savings amount.

Again, Drumf supporters where are you today?
You removed the bumber stickers from your car? What?! Hey!

I’m not laying in on you – no need to feel ashamed
if you’re ready to get off your hind parts and get back in the game.

The head of the WH is not well and appears quite lame.
He’s making America into something unrecognizable and strange.

Me? I’m just chronicling about it,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Wake-up! Wake-up! I’m trying to shout it.

Monday Morning after the yawning

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Sports, TV Shows on October 9, 2017 at 5:50 am

happy-morning-modelGood morning Monday. I slept like a baby; no chatty dome.
I was up early sipping jo and feeling girly in my serene home.

I’m a homegirl by DNA – I’m sure. Meaning, I enjoy being domicile.
I marinate in my own place and emerge in the public with a refreshing smile.

It’s worth it and ooo child! If everyone caught on to ‘this way,’
there’d be a lot more transit smiles and more hand waves.
There’d be less bird-flipping and more safe driving engaged.
We might even get into mindful thinking and end senseless road rage.

We might.
I do love the evolution of life.

It’s time to do it again.
The last evolution brought Trump and Putin in.

Good morning Monday, mayhem ain’t your friend.
Hating anyone in your heart (overt or covert) is a sin.

There’s another white supremacist rally is planned for Charlottesville.
They’ve put out their own PR. Their use of gall is unreal.

Unity is in a bad place; though there’s still time to heal.
Hate is easily washed away if you let the love in your heart spill…

manipulator

Peep this Mike…

Good morning Monday. We’re alive, life is good, hence,
Is there anyone among us who understands VP Pence?

He spent tax dollars flying from Cali to Indiana yesterday for the game
and decided to leave after some players took a knee – to emphasize “lame.”

Not “lame” as it pertains to how he feels about the players protesting for equal police protection and rights
but lame as in he and the prez used this stead to spread a little divisive light.

Pence then again, on the taxers payers dollar and dime
flew back to the West Coast to Vegas grind.

I’m sure he wasn’t hitting the casino’s but he is on a gamble.
He’s playing a game with the American dollar. Something we can’t handle.

Obviously. Right?
Ask Tom Price about those flights…

Alright. That’s enough.
Life for those in power is pretty rough.

Though Bob Corker has shown big guts!
He’s been calling the prez’s tiny twitter bluffs.

I’m praying that we’ll all be okay; for the future, I want to see her.
I’m Qui
and when I say “I,” I mean “WE” – so what’s with poking at N. Korea?

These are the headlines that we all should refuse.
This is the kerplunk of a real News Peruse:

Humping Life

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on June 28, 2017 at 4:30 am

happy-birthday-dad.jpgYesterday was my Dads birthday; the fact was embedded in my sublime.
No one called to remind me, still – all day he was on my mind.

Life is kind. I smiled and laughed aloud once I realized
It was my Dads birthday. ‘Twas a pleasant surprise.

Today upon rising I am still happy.
I slept in a silk bonnet to stave off ‘nappy.’🤣

The first thing I did was read scripture, pray and meditate,
Then I ran downstairs yo! – to fetch a cup of jo and duly start the day!

I’m happy to be alive to thrive in this vibe. Please tell me how you feel?
My dad checked out on May 3rd then my Aunt – on Monday morn. Unreal.

I was still on the heal from my Dad leaving us and now my Aunty has taken the lead.
If a broken heart was literal I’d be suffering an excessive organ bleed.

Sometimes it feels like … “Ooo wee.”
So I just keep it moving –prayerfully.

While I’m emotionally in transit dare I repeat and say,
I am still interested in you. How do you feel today?

Baby are you okay? I pray this day does treat you swell.
After all your health care was not repealed away and is doing quite well.

Whew! What a chaotic scare and the Republicans are in no way through.
In order to divvy tax cuts for the rich they’re dipping into medicades pool.

save-the-aca-protest.jpgDon’t stop showing up to those town hall meetings or those protests in the street
If healthcare for every American citizen is what you want to see.

Every time you let up from showing that you’re fed up they take your inch and stretch it a mile.
Your decency overriden and your good sense smitten while politicians play vile.

I know, dear child. I’ve already humped satellite news and early, yo!
I’ve been up since the night-to-day crux . I ushered in MORNING JOE.

And so here we go! The sun is up and we are effectively on the hump.
Today holds excitement; in my throat there’s a lump

In my solar plex; my tummy, I truly feel butterflies.
Today the limit is set pretty high – way beyond the skies.

rise-people-standup.gifSo rise kinfolk, rise! — if in you there is life
And call up that estranged fam  member and write off any strife.

Then hump on the back of this vibe that is about today,
And ride that girl like she’s yo’ own. Today is all your day!

Take life in with every breath that you draw
Today is another opportunity to move forward past Hem & Haw.

Remember them?

Gird yourself with wisdom and be kind to all that you meet,
I’m Qui
Happy Hump Day to ya, kinfolk. Life with you feels oh so sweet.

What’s Left

Opportunity over Rabbit hole

What’s left in a world that’s chasing its tail
down a rabbit hole to hell
with an over inflated Wall Street, at the bell
and a healthcare plan that wishes you’d never get well?

I’ll tell you on a dime, exactly What’s Left:
Your GOOD MIND! Now, tend to your health.”

Good morning baby! How’d you sleep last night?
Me? Snug as a bug in a rug; solid and tight.

My dreams were alright, easy going, I’m sure I cooed.
Then I woke up to Life, Wednesday and YOU! All of which is cool.

What’s Left for me today? To hang with you and highlight the good
Since Jon Ossoff won’t be representing that Georgia hood.

And that’s okay, right? The political pool is filled with smoke.
I respect the people’s choice – twas the people who cast the vote.

Let yesterday’s story be wrote and make today memorable still.
What’s Left is opportunity! Go ‘head and cop a feel. 🤗

Making it my own…

I went shopping yesterday and bought a cute little chaise.
I’m in the mood today to rearrange this place.


I’m in the mood today to make a new space
In my life, my heart – renew the smile on my face.

I do meditate.
It’s the best way
to start the day.

What’s Left after you loose your sanity and your cool?
Well, there’s always, a cave and a bib for your drool.😄

But that’s not you! And I’m willing to bet
If you put forth new effort you can increase What’s Left.

Exercise your body, exercise your mind.
You’ll find What’s Left beyond a tighter behind

Is clarity of thought and creativity in flow.
I recommend focusing on YOU – you deserve it, Yo!

So with this beautiful new days begin,
I’m Qui
bidding you encouragement to Win! Win! Win!

Yesterday had its relative depths.
Today: opportunity is absolutely What’s Left.

Peeping the VANTAGE VIEW via a few

In Griot, Networking, News, Politics on May 26, 2017 at 11:56 am

vantage-view.jpgSo I don’t do too much talking if much isn’t needed to say,
that’s always a good time to drop in on others and their convey.

I particularly like blogs, I fancy the bloggers truths
whether I agree with them or not, I respect their vantage view.

You’ve got to! No man nor woman is speaking out to be ignored.
I know the difference between writs of purpose and those born of the bored.

Those are the ones I ignore and they eventually go away.
But when there’s birth of a write filled with purposeful excite
that piece earns its publishing stay.

Google and other search engines memorialize it
It is then vetted to be “a vantage view” hit.

So without adieu, let’s get to it.
Link by link is how I do it:

Being the confrontational chick that I am
I’m going to start with Gianforte and “The Body Slam”

body-slamming-gianforteWhat’s up with that? Civil servants no longer give a damn?
So are we, the inquisitive constituents, to also expect a body slam?

I’m not in line for that slaughter. I’m not that type of lamb.
You give what you get; an eye for an eye, a body slam for a body slam.

I don’t think this is going to go over too well, congressionally in the round.
I predict a few uprisings in Gianforte’s future where he may feel ‘a pound.’

Karma. She is real.
Ask former Rep. Michael Grimm how it feels:

But you can’t ask him. He’s no longer civilly serving any constituents.
Gianforte is up to revive the spirit of tyranny – let his 15 minutes be spent.

Micheal Grimm thought he was above the law,
When serving the public, no such immunity is bought.

Welcome to Congress Mr. Gianforte. May your media light shine forever bright.
And next time you lay hands on someone may the cameraman reel you right.

Michael Grimm served 8 months in prison post his “break you in half” threat to the reporter.
Though it was his evasion of taxes, fraud and lack’ness that delivered him to the big house border.

All is in order for Gianforte to follow the footsteps of the strong armed.
And like Paul Ryan is pretending — we’ll call it a ‘voters right’ norm.

Another overriden alarm.

Anywho, between me and you,
these are a couple of vantage views
that call on Americans to be @ the include.
And God bless the look of us all when the grump is being rude:

Ahhh. The vantage view of the elitist and rich.
Ahhh. The slim ass percentage of 100% bitch.

I’m not mad though I am embarrassed.
The pussy grabber is always up, out and at it….

Jester moves.

I’m sure the weekend late show comics are going to have a field day at the state of our country today,
I’m Qui
Happy Friday baby. Peep the vantage view in play. If you dare, send up a prayer and then walk STRAIGHT away.

Let your awesome agenda rule the day.

It’s getting FUNKY

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Politics, TV Shows, Video on May 17, 2017 at 5:06 am

Last night as satellite news was spilling it–
The world beside me was watching and reeling it.

Taking notes.
Making jokes.

On that man in the white house
whose not working but should be kicked out?

I don’t know, I’m not crazy about the orange homey,
but he had my patience-pending then he fired Comey.

And then he did an interview with Lester Holt
to prove his good mind may be on the fro.

He admitted on camera like a bird that sings
how he fired James Comey while thinking of “this Russia thing.”

McMasters, Huckabee-Sanders and Sean Spice alike
Have all looked like fools behind Trump on the mic.

Each one braving reporters to buff for the orange twitter.
Just to have the rugged pulled from under them; the prez is no quitter.

Sean is worn out and Huckabee-Sanders is looking crazy.
McMasters came out with a “non-denial” denial, like that would phase “we.”

But to phase or erase from yesterdays memory — It did not.
It just reconfirmed that the SPOT is quite HOT!

Pennsylvania Avenue is still the hottest soap opera (to date) brewing.
Isn’t the prez protected from being court dragged by the suing?

Some are hinting the prez to take a thwarted term and go hiate
after it was leaked that he asked Comey to drop the investigate.

Look guys he’s 70. He is living long,
but that holds no guarantee on the mind being strong.

We should all be concerned
from what I’ve learned.

My father passed 2 weeks ago
and he was only 69, yo!

But I can tell you from recent dealings
a strong mind is not what he was feeling.

In fact to watch him slip on basic judgments — broke my heart.
To recognize the prez may be “slipping in judgment” would be smart.

Sadly, it’s Ivanka’s daddy. I too am a Daddy’s girl.
So yeah, It’s Getting Funky is the jam being heard across the world.

Good morning baby, It’s Wednesday again,
Pray up, stay up and forgo building sin.

I’m up early with my cup of jo and a smirky grin,
I’m Qui
On that Dr. Dre piece. ‘Bout to run it again.
