THURSDAY is HER DAY

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on June 27, 2019 at 7:53 am

thursday.jpgMe and Thursdays — we go way back
like 4 new tires on a Cadillac.

It just is what it is.
I’m all about that ‘Thursday biz.’

What are you up to today?
Is everything everything? Are you feeling okay?

Did you sleep well last night? Tell me, love, did you dream?
I did and I loved it – I’m up to research what it means.

Do you ever do that? Research your dream for a dimensional reveal?
Or when you dream something vivid do you blame your last meal?

Either way, good morning goodness. I’m so glad that we’ve made it this far.
I have a shoot this morning – my favorite healing arts star.

What? You don’t know of one? You implore the help of MD’s when you’re in pain?
Please don’t limit your access to good health – call a masseuse, a therapist, a saint!
For God sake, do not lower your quality of life because of pain.

During my documentary research, I learned much about the benefit of humans moving.
This morning via movement, I am up, showing-and-proving.’ What are you doing?

Do something for thyself on this day.
No other day is promised – please have it your way.

When was the last time that you went outside and played?
Thursday’s are verse-days; express your inner-kid today.

Me? I’m due on set in a few short minutes.
Experience is mine for the making; I’m in it to win it.

I’m making egg-scramble for breakfast: sausage-egg-potato.
I’d love to feed you, as well; consume breakfast before you go.

Rise and sip this jo that I have prepared for you.
Let me bid you a productive day filled with good energy through and through.

Whether or not you have to work the weekend, get jitted up, anyway – to win,
I’m Qui
and Thursdays are my day’s to shape the week’s end. It’s always good to start it out with a friend.

I appreciate you in my morning spend.

Feeling 19

GIRL WOMAN NEXT DOOR

It’s where I am right now, in my life. It’s what I’m doing.
It’s how I’m living and how I’m… chewing.

Did you think I was going to say something lewder?
I’m still on stealth game — objectives shrewder.

I feel limitless. I feel bliss.
I feel like a few years prior, that I really miss.

You know?
Maybe yes? Maybe no?
Regardless of your age, let your youth show.

Who are you and what do you want?
Is life making you proud; your chief flaunt?

Either way, act how you feel.
Life is short; with thyself keep it real.

Let today have a limitless appeal – get your groove on.
I’m peeping the dude in front of me; deep melanin and strong.

Feel’s like a Friday kinfolk. I ain’t ‘gone lie.
If I can put in on a promising evening – I’m ‘gone try.

What about you?
Braces are tight and effect my chew.

Speaking of, I’ve been in braces for more than a year.
I’m smiling shiny chrome from ear to ear

and I like.
It has fashioned for me, a more perfect bite.

Not for the sake of conceit,
but to stop the grinding of my teeth.

Yes — I have TMJD and it hurts like heck.
Right now I’m in braces with pains in my neck.

It’s not solely the braces at play,
it’s a disorder at my good ol’ TMJ.

If you don’t have TMJD, don’t get it and relax your shoulders.
TMJ is facilitated by necessary fascia that has grown colder.

Crazy science stuff, still very true.
Fascia build-up is fixed but can move.

Did you know that?
My current documentary is about a ‘healing arts cat.’

Because of her handy work; moving the fascia in my face and neck
I was able to avoid cashing that double-jaw surgery check

last year. Remember that piece about TMJ = Teeth Mouth Jive?
TMJ disorder has a grip that is all-the-live,
though with the help of my LMT, I have more than thrived.
Eh fam, it’s truly good to be in control and alive.

How are you feeling? Me? I’m Feeling 19.
Good morning beloved. I’m glad to have you on the scene.

How about one of these?

Approach this day stressless and at ease.

Let’s breathe. This week is going to be a great one – I see.
I’m Qui
Open to opportunistic prospects, after all, I’m just 19. 😛

Oh Me, Oh My! It’s so good to be alive.

Good morning beloved: I love my life.
All isn’t sunshine neither is it all strife.

My daily schedule fluctuates between leisure and unbelievably busy.
If it weren’t for my production assistants I’d be overbooked and dizzy .

I am grateful this morning, o’ beloved. Do scoot-in closer towards me.
Let’s stay in bed until 15 after 3. Let’s lie still for a couple of beats.

Let’s explore the autonomy to breathe.
Inhale, exhale, then repeat.

Let’s do a couple million reps.
Let’s stay oxygenated to avoid low depths.

All will be well.

What have you got up today? Thank God that Friday is here.
Summer vacations are in full effect, but I don’t hear the familial cheer.

Where are all of the road trip announcements and blogs chronicling such?
I know that you’re out and about because your yielding Neilson no love.

For herein the dim, I’m a canary with pure oxygen who writes.

Things will improve and broadcast entertainment will, again soar sharp.
I know because I’m doing the research, tracking the numbers and implementing heart.

If you don’t show the viewers a clear window or two
of what is capable of them and what good they can do…

they will not know.

For those who often wake-up and haven’t a clue as to what they will do once they rise,
consider approaching the day with meditation and prayer; give thanks for your breath and your eyes.

Rise happy in the face of and give thanks to the creator for life.
As hard as you slept last night, He never left your side.

Good morning beloved’s, we indeed have our work cut out for us today,

Glad to start my day with thee, it’s gonna be great – because I prayed.

I’ve Missed You

Last week was quick, diligent, and creative.
By the weekend I was yielding capacity; cinematography skills paraded.

It was great. It was exciting to shoot a piece and direct it at the same time.
The documentary is “vein direct,” I believe it will connect and – it’s not in rhyme.

Not this time, this piece is about remaining agile and limber.
Lest you stop moving and a witness yells timber.

But since that’s not us,
I’m shooting this piece to get you onto the cusp

of doing something new.
My piece is designed to invoke you to move.

Oh, I’ve missed you. Did you miss me back?
I’m down 10 pounds in a month post forfeiting snacks.

Yes! I am back into the groove.
My shooting schedule is crazy – I had to bust a move.

What about you? Tell me what have you been up to?
Did you come up on some good-good, like I suggested you do?

Yes or No?
This isn’t about me, but I rarely refuse, so…

Yes.
Now please, rise this morning to be your best.
I yearn for you: North, South, East. and West.

What vision would you like for me to reel into view?
My capacity is unlimited. Let’s talk about you.

Good morning sweetheart. Welcome back, again,
I’m Qui

I’m down to collab – so what do you say, my friend?

Above The Fray

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on June 12, 2019 at 5:15 am
fray.jpg

THINK ABOUT IT: Fray is most accepted on a burlap sack – and even then it may be frowned upon depending on what’s in the sack.

Remain there.
Be steady – even when it ain’t fair.

Keep your nose clean – to keep law officials out of your hair.
You can do all of that & then some and still find no advantage there…

initially.
To equate the universes sway to a human peer’s way – will miss me.

I suggest that we take a good look at all situations.
Are they of well-crafted design or fray via communication?

Look at it closely and if there is indeed a sign of discord or tear
“above the fray,” I appeal to you and please remain there.

Do it for you, because it is who you are and what you will and won’t allow.
Lest you lose your bluff and out comes this stuff: “Do what?” then a Boom-Pow!

Please do not let that be you.
Let “being above the fray” be your habitual cue.

This hump day is owned by you and I. Do tell me whatcha got up?
Me? I’m doing some production work remotely — here in the cut.

If you’re down to help me out on lights during my pending shoot – do send me a text.
I’m about crew collaboration. If not this time, let’s hook up on the next.

Time is of the essence. If we take our eyes off of it, it will surely get away.
I’m into being the most productive; my positive cloud space overcasts all fray.

He-ey! Happy hump day to ya! Be happy and remain there,
I’m Qui
Glad to be leaving this note for thee, simply because I care.

Now you know, so go to & fro and conquer the day.
And if that co-worker says one more ill-word to you — keep your head

The ARC

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on June 10, 2019 at 6:29 am

movement.jpg

Today finds me in thought about composition. We start film production this week on my documentary piece about movement. The saying used to be, “If you move your meat – you lose your seat,” but in today’s constant game of musical chairs with personality and ethics everyone seems to be standing around a few chairs, but no one is really moving. Where’s the story here? Is there an ARC and where is it bending?

If a story is without movement or transition there is nothing; in fact, without movement and progress, the end is near. We have all been moving since the day that our bodies were formed in utero (thus all of those Braxton Hicks pains your mom experienced). Movement means life.

The story arc in a tale of movement is something that our union is missing today.
diamond shapeI’m up at my leisure, satellite news is a teaser; we need movement in the U.S.A.

Q: What act will transition us? How do we shape a better convey?
A: Make a bold move or stand to lose your status quo in the global sphere way.

thats all folks.gif

We have got to show some life.
Keep moving through the grooves and resist darkness for the light.

Yeah. Does that sound alright?
We need our arc to bend sharply towards the light.

Let our story be one of great change – seemingly out of nowhere.
Let us move in one motion towards love, compassion, and care.

Are you still there? You do know that you are the protagonist in this piece?
I need you to consider all things, pull-it-together, stand on your feet,

and move.
The resilient arc in our story is framed around you.
You, you, you. So what are you going to do?

Be scared of nothing and stand still for not too long.
A man has to be in motion to remain agile and strong.

So does a vibe.
Don’t let a stagnant game of musical chairs be your life.

Don’t stand in line for a seat that millions will never feel.
Find the arc in your own story and stand bright on the hill.

As much as it sounds like I’m talking to America “the collective” I must indeed admit,
that it takes individuals to keep our energy reserves full. No worries, I believe WE got this.

movement_dance.gif

Stop standing around and start moving in the direction that you want to see this story go,
I’m Qui
and The ARC is you and me in every seed that we intentionally sow.
Water and nourishment must follow if we intend for this story to grow.

Love on your neighbor with more yes’ than no’s.
Life is a give & take, we’ve got to move to yield ebb & flow.

 

Oui Oui Oui – SHORTS TV

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on June 7, 2019 at 12:13 am

I love SHORTS…

For 14 hours a day and at least 5 days a week, I am watching short films. I keep the television in my office on DirecTV’s SHORTSTV channel. It’s a way for me to feel surrounded by my peers, be entertained, educated, and inspired. It’s also a great way to stay motivated on my own scriptwriting journey. I can’t watch a movie without counting shot types and how they are composed to convey the story. It’s a science, for sure.

Inference. My creative mind immediately goes to what happened before the film started and what could possibly happen after it has ended. I dabble in inference daily. It’s the stuff new creations are made of; it’s also the stuff that encourages me to stay on the path that I am pursuing. I’ve successfully completed several collegiate projects where I had to create characters and scripts for popular films and narrative series. I’ll admit that it can be tough to watch a film that you did not write, comprehend the characters, fall in love with the storyline and substories and create breath to strengthen and sustain its life — but I’m into it. Call me a script empath.

filmstrip-divider

It’s been a very long minute
since you and I have talked short films; all up in it.

So let’s begin it:


BITTER is an 11-minute film about a middle-aged man who finds himself shocked by his 21-year old daughters taste in men.
A well-seasoned rooster seems to be pecking his offspring-hen.

This is a comedy with a real gut feeling spin.
I think you’ll enjoy its ironic end.

FATIMA is a 29-minute short film
about the reality of an immigrant living in the dim.

The dim would be an “illegal status;” always over-the-shoulder looking.
For the good that Fatima was doing on her job, it resulted in police booking.

Though all could have cleared; resolved by proof of videotape
yielding one person with positional power to free or shoot to hell her fate.

That’s about all that I’m going to say about that. You should consider giving it a look.
Although revealing it could be quite healing. The ending was unexpected; I was shook.
.

IMPERVIA is a work of science fiction that breaths life into an impoverished family of droids. Yes – I said droids, as in androids; think ALIEN with Sigourney Weaver, remember the android on board? Formed like so, an impoverished family of droids is sought out by the governing authority to make some pretty conclusive decisions about the family’s habitation. My good friend and novelist, Marc Abbott stars as the protagonist and head of the droid family. His character is responsible for charting a vision that will yield them a taste of freedom; a way to re-enter society functionally under a system that currently deems them not worthy:

Last but not least – in fact, this one is quite the short thrill,
Christopher T. Wood reigns in this film titled: TIME TO KILL.

Not to be confused with Samuel L Jackson’s piece, A TIME TO KILL.
This short film is comical before getting comparably real:

filmstrip-divider

Unfortunately, BITTER and TIME TO KILL are the only two
that I could find complete short film views for you.

As for FATIMA and IMPERVIA, if you want to catch them completely,
the best suggestion I have for you is to tune into SHORTS TV.

Me? I’m amped up today because it’s Friday and I’ve got script composition on my mind,
I’m Qui
and between you and me, I’m glad to know VCR’s did not take with them the power to REWIND.

Me, you and ShortsTV — we’re going to be just fine.
Us and this literary light o’ mine…

Museful Monday

muse.gifMmm. Good morning baby, (as I roll in the bed towards you).
Do tell me what you want to do.

Shall we arise, make productive hay, and raise the tent
of intellect on the day? Equate it to wisdom spent?

Of course, we should.
Let intellect be the wood

that receivers want to surf.
Let an understanding be our fundamental turf.

How’s your headspace? How’s your body today?
Ditch the seriousness for gamification and play.

What type of productive term relation is Gamification?

The term incorporates the use of game mechanics and experience design
to digitally engage and motivate people to achieve their goals.”
—————–
Gamification is the way to get it, yo!

The day is new and poised to be a fun day.
Let’s rise to the occasion of another fantastic Monday.

You muse me, I want you and together “we”
should dedicate this space to positivity.

Monday is the space that we will make positive space out of,

Good morning dear Muse, please accept my Day 1. Love.

Remember the heroes of yesterday…
they are the reason that you can safely play

outside at the park, in transit and at the game.
If it weren’t for our brave military our existence would be bane.

Have a Mindful Memorial Day to the survivors of those who we’ve lost.
We may not understand your depths, though we recognize your cost.

As you kneel, I’ll drape a cape on you and dust you off.
You, who were charged with carrying on; your hearts so soft.

Thank you for the sacrifice:
children, hubby and wife.

Thank you for sharing your heart, your boy and your girl.
A Mindful Memorial Day; let’s remember the brave that shaped our world.

They are only “dead” when we forget to be thankful for their sacrifice,

Have a Mindful Memorial Day baby – Democracy costs a high price.

Be thankful today, be happy and fully embrace this life.
