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.

Don’t Stop

In Communication, Griot, Politics, Self Improvement on November 6, 2020 at 7:48 am

As it pertains to good love, good food, and good drink: Don’t Stop. Keep going, and give us more like the evolution of hip hop. 

Hasn’t hip hop evolved? If not – it surely will. Eventually the listening audience will require an intellectual fill. 

Knowledge-laced rap will be a demand. Communications are still barbaric in this era of  man.

Change is in the process, please Don’t Stop. Get wisdom while the-getting-is-good and higher education is hot.

If you have votes to count — don’t stop that either. America ISO a new route and/or a new driver.

Michelle Obama’s moma is right – please believe her. Do not stand in the round of jesters & clowns. “Keep it moving;you’re a leader.

Don’t Stop believing in good and all that you know — based on how your neighbors decided to vote. 

It’s okay. Because what they didn’t know — is that the world is governed by God, and voting is a civil show. 

Just a pulse of the American people – who tout “in God we trust” and prop up steeples.

Hmph. Thank God that all Americans are not the same. From cars, color of skin, and texture of mane — we are so not the same. 

Differences can be measured in the uneducated or smart; but the real differences that divide Americans reside in our hearts.

WHO ARE WE?

We are children of God. We are not God and we err all of the time. There’s so much we need to discuss beyond this summary in rhyme. 

We have work to do. Good thing that I’m into it and still in love with you. 

Good love… Don’t Stop. In or out of societal fashion, love is still hot. 

The 2020 Election ballot’s are still being counted 3-days after the election —

and it looks like this country is headed in a new direction. 

You and Ilet’s communicate. Care to make a connection? — The last 3.8 years have been void of sincere affection. 

As the vote tally rises I’m looking for a couple of pleasant surprises:

  • I want a new day to set and begin.
  • I want you and I to get more unity in.

We’re more than half-way done with vote counting, the 2020 Election turnout rocked!

I’m Qui

Much respect to thee, I wish a better era for we – so on “the vote counting,” please 

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.

Even Better

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.

Do you HIATUS

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on September 25, 2020 at 8:05 am
Clarity and meaning.

I like to HIATUS. I really do love to do me. I pause the writes and hop a flight to spend a few nights in Cali or the NYC. 

Once in my accommodations I kick back and relax. I meditate and pray for bigger faith and God has got my back.

Creativity does not lack, new concepts are in the bag and I am grateful for that. 

As of late, I have been on hiatus in the era of Corona  – where masks and shield glass is all up on us.

Everyone should be mindful of spittle, cough and sneeze. The people are conflicted on what to do, who, and what to believe.

Please believe in the number of Americans that have died from this virus. Mask-up and handle up to help thwart our ill-spirals. 

The idiocracy of our day is on display as I travel to and fro. Let us find unity in community; let us focus and vote.

Our country is still young and we don’t relish in “choke.” If we have something to say, let us show up to the polls and vote.

I love the U.S. and I love you. It’s between you and I what we decide to do.

Though if you are still into the red, the white and the blue, I suggest bridging more understanding between me and you.

Where did MUTUAL RESPECT go? We can get it back. Let’s recommit to our unity-values and pin discord to the mat.

Tell outsiders who seek to interfere – to ‘mind your business and ‘get back. Forgo arguing on social media; don’t wear the mad-hat. Let bots troll on thots — you’ve got nothing to do with that.

Take a break sometimes and breathe; take a break from the societal fuss. To self preserve is still my word, so Do You HIATUS?

This morning I slept in and I’ll be having brunch in bed,

I’m Qui

thinking about we. Please marinate on what I’ve said.

IDIOCRACY is a movie, not a goal:

Avoid idiocracy. Vote.

Vision and Focus from 1860

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Politics on September 18, 2020 at 9:16 am

What does tomorrow look like in your mind’s eye? 10-years, 20-years, 200-years from nigh?

You ought to always think forward, from what I just read – yesterday’s woke vision was more than a century ahead.

So I was talking to Fab5Freddy the other day, and he dropped a link referencing The Wide Awakes.

I was intellectually-smashed and enlightened to the hilt because Fab is always on “the progressive” tip.

Photo by: Sean Pressley for the New York Times

My mind is always in-search-of a new wrinkle, so I took a quick researching sip — and learned that the Wide Awakes, in essence, have been evolution’s progressive whip.

Formed from the Republican Party in 1860, they pushed for President Lincoln to win. Then they trolled the states with ‘freedom sway‘ for my enslaved kin until the Emancipation Proclamation kicked-in.

What great vision. Evidence reveals that they are still on a mission.

United. Collectively we can conquer all. The Wide Awakes of 1860 had vision and gall.

The spirit of their focus has strengthened with time and has brought many iconic artists together to vibe.

From ObeyTheGiant to Fab5Freddy, Ebony Brown, and Alicia Keys — I am grateful to witness the fruit with century-year-old roots, alive & well, and in full swing.

Life is all about learning and getting better. Tell me something new, and I turn into a research go-getter.

Hank Willis Thomas heads up the 2020 Wide Awake group that defines itself as “a network of like minds who create in the name of liberation, artist sovereignty, and the evolution of society” that aims “to radically reimagine the future and enable self-emancipation.”

Hank Willis Thomas. Who is he? He is an American conceptual artist whose capacity produces the most creative + smartest.

Per the JstorDaily – They were known as the “Wide Awakes,” because of their youth, enthusiasm, and torch-lit nighttime marches. “Now the old men are folding their arms and going to sleep,” said William H. Seward while campaigning for Lincoln, “and the young men are Wide Awake.”

They ran through the streets of the South in the 1860’s — they are a heavy weigh-in as to why slavery missed me

The spirit of their fruit is more than a century years old and their reconvene is our progressive gold.

This topic reminds me that we are always living in legacy-making days. Reality revives Wide Awake and invokes a true quote from SCHOOL DAZE:

New 411 keeps the eyes wide. I credit this brain wrinkle to “the woke” Fab5.

TOPS

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Politics, Science on September 16, 2020 at 9:26 am

A hump, a hill or a mountain? Regardless the elevation, I am trying to be on top! The amount of sound bytes that one phone call can produce is quite a lot.

Ask the prime head-of-household at Pennsylvania’s block of 16. I think after talking to Bob Woodward, he knows what I mean.

New sound bytes are indeed a situation that needs to be “gotten on top of.” And FYI, never try to re-word what you’ve already said, love. It’s not a good for anyone, let alone the ‘dot gov.

Remember when online browsing, at any “country” prompt – the United States would always be first? Things have changed from yesterday and I have a longing thirst — to be tops! The dismantling of our status quo has really got to stop. 

There are 40-plus days until the 2020 Election. Please pay attention to vote towards a re-direction.

Science is real and Mother Earth is proving this now. Global warming is about extreme weather, not just the summers heightened plow.

Our winters will prove to be more intense — and beach front property will decrease in rent.

Hurricanes and massive tropical storms — that used to be once-in-a blue moon, are now the norm.

Glaciers are melting faster than ice cream in the oven. Mother Earth is sick of our girth; she needs human lovin.’

COVID cases are soaring through the roof. The growing daily tally is our sobering proof. 

We must buckle down and get on top of this. For our leadership, the world insists. 

It is we, that they miss and I pray that they will never stop. They yearn, like we yearn; the world enjoyed us being on top.  Now we’re facing a pandemic that is difficult to stop. Wear a mask and gloves, don’t let COVID cop. 

Let’s get on with the-get-on; let’s leap like new frogs. Let’s show spine at the polls and take America off of “pause.” Let’s value ourselves like the art of Hip Hop — and not auction off our constitutional rights like a thot

I don’t sleep in bunkbeds anymore but I did as a child — and being on top was always my style.

I suppose I prefer to be TOPS anytime that I am on display,

I’m Qui

Good morning  to the leader in thee. Elevate and take your place.

I will see you at the top.

waking-beauty.gifGood morning good looking. Yes, I’m talking to you.
What did the weekend find you ‘pulling up to?”

Were you glued to the tube? Were you talking with friends
on topic Senator Kamala Harris and former VP Biden?

Okay, okay. I won’t go all-in,  though it’s important to be a sport.
I’m interested in arresting COVID19, so towards fresh perspective: I support.

To lose another life, I don’t want no more.
The Lord is our shepherd – in Him, we score.

More folks are paying attention and joining the band
to wear PPE across these United lands

and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

wear-a-mask_breath-kills

Thank you, America. We got this and Go ‘head!
May our logistical routes get well, and our itineraries be met.

We are not ‘out for the count.’ There’s opportunity here.
It’s not how you start out but how you end the year.

Let’s remain focused and we’ll be fine.
Participate in wearing PPE all of the time.

make-lemonadeParticipate in transforming lemons into lemonade
and kick this pandemic ‘thit into “our past” phase.

It’s time to revive celebrating.
remember “Kicking-Hay & Horray-ing?”

Gosh, it feels like it’s been too long since we’ve done it.
If you agree — adopt wearing PPE and let’s all gun it!

Do not let up.
Go out for necessities only then stay in the cut.

The Covid era is a social rut. I know… I’m with you.
Let it not deter us from perusing a headline or two:

There’s new news on the line coming straight out of New York:
there’s a call for the public to return to being a quarantine sport.

The article is a good read; minutes to complete it are only a few,
but I can paraphrase the response of the people: “they don’t want to.”

Mask burn out. Absolutely. I get it.
Though if it stymies Covid19 – I have to dig it!

Don’t you?
I hope that you do.

What about the mail, remember playing “Post office?”
Keep the P.O. open. What’s the cost of this?

Let’s not be fooled again — for that’s been happening a lot.
There is no common mass fraud around US mail-in ballots.

This is the knowledge that needs to be ‘got.
To be informed is to be sexy – knowledge is hot.

Do what you-need-to-do to cast your beloved vote ballot.
Love for the United States and you? Mmmph. I got it.

Rumored voices hint some representatives may be confession
time off is enjoyed, but congress is better served in session.

What do you think? I think that would be great!
There’s so much on the table; so much at stake.

I know, I know… you just want to take a break.
But the American people’s residences’ are up for take.

With American unemployment ticked-up quite a bit,
rent is rolling around to bank accounts full of lent.

There was a $600/monthly relief given to the unemployed,
until word from DC came in last week saying ‘$300 is much better noise.’

FORBES.com reported on that tidbit last week
and rent is coming up — as sure I speak.

In these matters, I am praying for “we”
to survive impositions from the governs that be.

Things are always their best at the beginning,
let us operate as if — and claim the weeks end a winning!

Give me a pound if you’re down. Are you down to do it?

at Day 1 – confessing that I’m happy to [co-] go through it.
