[Click here to hear] — Are you right-handed?  Are you using the right hemisphere of your brain? Does the right shoe follow the left? Is it right to co-wash your mane?

I write it all and you’re right in most of life’s frames. Also, the left-handed use the right hemisphere of the brain.

The right-handed pen with no ink-drag — and to co-wash when you’re in a tight spot isn’t half bad.

That’s just how I feel about it. I do love the feel of rushing water in my hair.  I voice my views through words and reviews; my consumer reflections are fair.

To the left-brain hemisphere thinker: I hold my pen just like you and lean to the right when I drive. I’m partial with which hand I write, I live in the light, and embrace the truth to course-correct vibe.

Which is often enough. I don’t mind being wrong because I like learning new stuff.

I like kisses and hugs, but mostly from babies. I love kicking it with the boys and I miss hanging with the ladies.

So, I write it. For the future that we know’est not, I’m excited!

Aren’t you? It’s not too late for love to pull us through.

I mean that with all of my life force, because it is true. There is a brighter future for me and you.

Work for it. It’s nothing that any of us are “due.”  For too many years we’ve maintained a  “covert groove.”

It’s not right to carry-on covertly; say what you mean. If you’ve the will to do better and heal –kick “shame” off of the team. 

If “doing better” is within your reach – do heed it. Kick an old habit to the curb, you don’t need it.

You’re right to do what’s better; always do better for you.

What’s wrong is not respecting yourself or your neighbor’s p.o. view.

You’re right in your birthright, your stories and collected wisdom.

I comprehend, I write,  I push to better life, like Shirley Chisholm.

History will be inked today to stand strong tomorrow. Let us ink something wonderful to overshadow recent sorrow.

Let us love ourselves and our fellow man. Let us unite genuinely and heal this land.

It’s a win-win either way.

To live mindfully is called a Winsday.

then PUMP IT, Hottie!

When I talk about my GAC, I am referring to my Guardian Angel Crew. Do you have one? If you don’t think that you do, (and I think I’ve said this before in a previous column) I think that you very well have one, though you probably just think that you’re lucky.  Ha! Luck could never be so precise. I like to think that our Guardian Angels are probably the spirits of our past loved ones and collectively they form a crew. A necessary crew. Remember the near death situation that you escaped with your life, health, limbs? Well, your GAC has good defense. 

Who authorized us to have a GAC? That’s a good question and I think a good answer would be our Creator. It’s an intelligent answer. Who sent the angel into the lions den to protect Daniel? Please do not tell me that you thought Daniel was among the first recorded lion tamers — because he was not. Daniel was sentenced to the lions den but it was God’s will that Daniel not be harmed, so he sent aGuardian Angel.” 

So let’s say that “it’s official,” and that you have a GAC and they are with you most of the time, what do you think they think about some of the things that you do and say? Especially of those things that you say when no one is around to “call you out” on it. If you were aware that someone you loved and missed dearly besides Jesus is listening, would you say or do any of it?

Whatever your answers are, I think that it is highly likely that your loved ones who have crossed-over still hang out with you and often. When God sends a miracle, He could send an angel to travel from heaven every single time or He could have angels here on Earth. Right? 

Today is a great day to give some thought to your GAC and the things that you say and do. Besides God, they are watching you. If you are running around mask-less, talking to others who opt not to wear masks… what kind of workload are you putting on your GAC? Fighting un-masked spittle is tedious work — you don’t want to wear them out. Your GAC is likely part of the reason why you don’t cut your digits off every time you play sous chef. Yes, I, too have counted my blessings and digits after playing Emeril Lagasse. Thank God for our Guardian Angel Crews. Imagine your loved-ones from a different view. In light of, consider living mindfully; a better-you.

When I realized that I was going to write about this topic, I asked myself “why?” — I suppose to compose a story of hope for those whose loved ones have died. 

Covid’s consumption is not a fiction nor a lie. Folks escape with their souls after losing their lives. 

Those left to survive remain asking why. Resist feeling lonely and shorten your cry. Regardless of what the issue was that caused your loved one to die, remember energy is not destroyed — it is transformed and still nigh.

Peep the Scientific insight:

You knew that and you know me,

I’m Qui

Grateful for knowledge, you, love, and my GAC

A Bag of LIFE

When it comes to bull corn do you really need to know —
down to the last detail from whence it traveled to and fro?

Will not knowing truly throw you into a rut?
You already know what you need to know – just check-in with your gut.

Sit quietly with eyes closed and ask the universe a question or two —
then check-in with your intuition; it’s always true to you.

Then open your eyes and thank God for the depths of truth.
Thank God that you’re not going to hell in a hand basket; His grace is holding you.

So what – if you’ll never know if a man is telling the truth from the start.
Let folks say what they want – know that God knows their heart.

Embracing this grace will prove you to look and feel smart.
Don’t let questionable chatter and worldly banter pierce your heart.

Staying focused on God is indeed a necessary art.
Your intuition is your compass; use it to chart.

What are your thoughts? Do tell what you think.
I’m Qui
and you’re quite intuitive if you think something stinks.

What I Do Know


A seasoned dancer.

I do know that God is real and that in Him I trust.
What crimes need be committed to warrant the chant: “Lock her up?”

I suppose if Mueller found no wrong doings – then the Clintons must be squeaky clean.
I also know the government does what it wants to take-away from and to add-to any scene.

The worlds way… it’s an old thing, it’s musty and resembles an old box.
I do know that my intuition is gold and that my connection with God rocks.

It’s also true that if you don’t stand for something that you will fall for any old thing.
I do know that we have a creator and it is of Him, to thee I sing.

Wear the cares of this world like salt over your shoulder,”
after mom delivered me those words she turned to granny and said, “I told her!

My ancestors wanted me to know that there is nothing new under the sun.
What I Do Know is that they weren’t lying. Today’s safety is in Wisdom. Get you some.

Don’t spend your time running in packs devised under peer-influenced controls.
God is watching and time is clocking; Vote your interests and pray for your soul.

I don’t need to know it all,
to know not to fall.

This is What I do Know.

What you do with today is solely on you.
Don’t play to the mundane. Call it “an old thang” – that you just don’t do.
On the real, if you want to heal then turn off the news too.


It may be our last true defense.


Okay. You know me well and how I feel about love.
I’m down to start my day with grown play,  a smile and a genuine hug.

I’m down to tell you just how much your good energy makes me smile.
I do believe love makes cross-country journeying feel like one mile.

Unbiased love is the good stuff, child.
Give some today; be guilty of doling it out.

A good life is yours to live and requires not one day of pout.
Give it and it’ll come back to you; love uses a boomerang rout.

When was the last time that you were God-smacked with love?
I’m Qui
and I’m God-smacking you now. Open up, I’m coming in for the hug.
