The weekend show has to be about FL and Puerto Rico

uphill-battle

An uphill battle…

Puerto Rico is still underwater and breaking down in health.
$1 from as many who can towards healing and rebuilding will surely help.

Two hurricanes hit and despite the presidents “perfect 10” buffering –
the people in Puerto Rico are still in dire trouble and suffering.

RHONJ Bethenny Frankel is on the case! I do love those Real Housewife shows.
She’s filling planes with food & supplies to save lives and having them destination flown.

Ricky Martin is from Puerto Rico and with humility conquers the verb “trying -”
he’s sending food and supplies to the island as well; to help halt folks from dying.

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez have been moved enough to hollar!
They’ve used thier mics and fanbase-love to raise 36-million dollars.

And while that sounds great! The island is still in the red
it’s not about 1 neighborhood in turmoil, but all of the people being fed.

The money raised will be divided in multiple ways to facilitate the most.
The bulk of it takes an infrastructure hit – none can transport without flight or clearing the roads.

So even though the donations are pouring in Puerto Rico needs much more.
Fema is on the scene but are overwhelmed and with little soar.

Ellen Degeneres is working with Cherrios – a nutritious name.
They’ve transported a thousand pounds of food to Puerto Rico by plane.

The amount of aid needed seems insane but we can each do our part
to remind Puerto Rico that they are in our prayers and in our hearts.

Click any of the highlighted links above —
and therein will be a route for you to give love.

Thank you in advance for caring that much about your brother.
I’m Qui
loving you unbiasedly — it’s second nature; I’m a mother.

I’m about life.
#PuertoRico

sunshine-state.jpgPS…

Still upside down from all of the water
let us not forget the peninsula Florida.

Just as I was about to publish this write of Puerto Rico HELP being on-ramp
I saw a line that went on for miles of Floridians needing foodstamps.

I don’t know what kind of assistance system our government has put into place
that has folks still out of sorts in the usual sunshine state.

They are still living low on necessities like water and food.
The coverage of Florida is light – in fact, quite subdued.

Don’t forget to send aid their way if you can.
Tragedy falls at once across the land.

This weekend we wont forget and will be encouraged as well,
to sit down and click a link to donate some help.

That’s what’s up! What do you say?
Let’s remember Puerto Rico, TX and the Sunshine state.

No sitting comfy in our homes.  We can all do a small part
to show our fellow Americans in need that they are in our hearts.

Cool! Karma is still real; let her always be understood,
Today you may be up but when you’re down – who’ll give you food?

Put yourself in the victims shoes.
Use the news for insightful views.

Don’t criticize – Support and utilize
I’m Qui
Send a buck, maybe 5. Prove that you, too are a lover of life.

An Americans well-being is depending on you.

O! How Good It Is

In Book, Communication, fitness, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video, weightloss on October 15, 2017 at 9:49 am

O-i-love-oprah2017I was fortunate to be a part of a studio audience taping of a Tao workshop hosted by Dawn Q. this weekend and it was phenomenal. Mind refreshing information about changing the way you think in order to change the quality of your life for the better. Upon close of the workshop we networked and talked more about the book referenced: “I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years.”

book_Ive-Decided-to-Live-120-Years_600.pngTherein networking I learned more about the production team and this particular book campaign. Noone asked me if I knew Oprah, (this happens to me a lot when I’m out and about. It’s an energy thing) but in the end it was clear through a series of questioning that some indeed wanted to know if I knew Oprah. I was doleful to tell them that I do not. Still I’m always happy that my energy would invoke people to ask that question, though more over that, I began to wonder if Oprah knew of this book. I’m an avid SUPER SOUL SUNDAY viewer and have learned a lot via the series so I took to the search engine again to see what they had on Oprah + Tao and found this:

Wayne Dyer and Oprah Winfrey – The Wisdom of the Tao

Oprah is about nourishment and whether it’s of the mind, spirit, soul or the stomach – she’s leading the charge. I’m already sending direct vibes her way in hopes that she’ll find this book and review the author on an upcoming Super Soul Sunday.  The “I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years” book is both enlightening and nutritious. Speaking of nutrition have you seen those new O That’s Good Soup commercials? The manufacturer behind the health conscious goodness is Kraft and the creator is Oprah.  Just another tasteful  incentive to evolve as it pertains to your diet. I haven’t tried the refrigerated cuisine line of soups yet, but it is high on my grocery list now.

o-thats-good-soup

I’m in the business of collecting and sharing good. I love hearing your personal stories of good fortune and sharing them with others. Somehow I am genuinely able to  bask in the glow of your good energy flow along with you. Meaning when people tell me about their new car, home or the raise on their job, I can immediately feel their surge of good energy in my tummy (my solar plexus). I’ll usually start jumping up and down (like a Price Is Right game show contestant) along with the person whose sharing the good news. I  surge so genuinely it often leaves onlookers confused  as to which of us is the good news recipient.  Having said as much you can see why Oprah comes up as much as she does. I love her good energy and her positive proactive contributions. Just as equally, I love sharing it with you.

The consumption of good energy is good for you. The FDA hasn’t said so because it used to be common sense – not to mention the message lacks lobbying backers. You don’t need a lobbyist to offer up subsidies for you to choose more wisely for yourself on anything. Change the way you think and change your life. This is something we can all do for free. The FDA is not putting their stamp on ‘free’ either. Where’s the kickback in that?

It’s morning again sweetheart and I’m up to my ol’ southern ways
of kissing your forehead upon waking and praying for you throughout the day.

Hey-ey! It’s just what I’m into and I hope it is understood
among our differences on a daily I’m always for you and your good.

If ever I should learn a new thing or an old thing that could help
I will bring it to the table whether for increase of health or wealth.

Either way I’m into good news as most of my writes reveal.
I’m Qui
Good morning and oui! It’s good to know there’s hope for what ills…

Another gander at OUTLANDER

outcast-ep305

The trio:  [L-R] Claire, Jamie, Frank

Yes I’m still watching the series that STARZ has duly birthed.
I enjoy the recreation of yesterday in all of its humility and girth.

I do.

So I’m watching it again and each episode is challenged and tried,
though I must admit “they got me,” the episode when Frank died.

I didn’t see it coming.
When I saw he had a ‘side chic’ – I heard wedding bells humming.

Frank said he wanted to marry his side gal and Claire was stunned.
However the writers lost control of his car in script and Franks role was done.

Dun-dun-dun.
A life without Claire was never his to be won.

outlander-jamie-claire-frank.jpg

And so we move on in the storyline,
Claire and Jamie‘s daughter, Brianna is a gingered delight.

She’s all grown up and living her life.
Claire’s heart still yearns to visit Edinburg, thrice, (she’s already been twice).

Brianna concurred ‘the thought is nice,’ then encouraged her mother to follow her heart.
This was episode 305’s conveying point of start.

Claire didn’t need arm twisting to declare that she will indeed return!
Then Roger gifted her with a bind of Scottish history that we’ve learned.

She’ll be careful not to lose sight of it in any year near 1756,
For the book is from the future and she will most surely burn as a witch.

Brianna gave her a topaz gemstone pendant to memorialize Claire’s ado,
then Claire with her own hands sewed herself a cute period suit.

It was a dress to be exact. That ol’ Claire can really sew!
She pieced together a fine little number out of a 1960’s raincoat.

Not too many days afterward she hailed a cab in the NYC hussle
though upon exiting the cab she purposely stepped into a puddle.

Why a puddle – you ask? Maybe it rained hard an hour or two?
Well the point of the puddle is when Claire was a child she feared she fall through

Any puddle on the ground. So at all cost she would avoid.
That was before time travel. The puddle is now welcomed noise.

She entered into a taxi but exited horse and buggy.
The day was an overcast, dim, dank and muggy.

Claire is back in the 1700’s, where the love affair all began,
I’m Qui
glued to the tube, but this is where episode 305 came to an end.

outlander-claire-ep305.jpgFYI — Claire also took, in tow, meds and pennacilin.
If only time travel was MORE than science fiction.

Still Starz and Outlander are rendering us a creative win.
Looking for a distraction from real life? You should tune in.

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:

Legendary Exits Re-visited

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, TV Shows on September 24, 2017 at 3:40 pm

Biggie & Tupac are still gone.
They left a gang of music & prophetic quotes to carry on.

Not just in one or two — but in many songs
Though in a  few we’ve got two that will explore some of the wrongs

that went along and may have co-facilitated the icons earthly exits;
Therefore WHO SHOT BIGGIE & TUPAC was destined to be broadcasted.

It’s going down on FOX and will be hosted by Soledad O’Brien and Ice-T.
I’m Qui
Rest assured this vibe will include recollects from  Fab5 during this re-examining of history.

Have a seat & tune in. We shall see…

The Band is Back Together

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on September 13, 2017 at 4:41 am

All eyes are now on Dre…

Episode 10, Season 4 of POWER did deliver
and dulled the stereotype of “being a killer.”

You had Budweiser, Coors & Miller together again…
Their government names could never contain the amount of sin

that they have on agenda; the mayhiem they intend to create.
Tommy and Ghost took out Uriel but meant to kill Dre.

Raina’s death was avenged but that doesn’t make all “right.”
Tariq showed up at Ray-Ray’s undercover cop spot and took his life.

He fired two shots and Rays life stalled,
Then Angela came after the fact and found a bullet lodged in the wall.

Tariq used Tasha’s personal handgun
Forcing Tasha to hire Terry Silver and end their romp fun.

Everything is different now…

Now the whole family is under the gun – they live by it.
Me? It’s a heck of a heap, the layers are so deep I had to write it.

For next season, I’m already excited, though I chose to write about Episode 10 today
because not long ago I read an article that indicated “limited episodes” are at play.

Meaning the producers asked for 11 or 12 episodes
to tell a thorough tale but we’re duly told “No.”

Is that so? I surely hope not.
Is STARZ the good guy or the dirty cop?

Why not grant the producers per their request?
Is the series worth it? [Answers] DO IT and HECK YES‼️ 🙂

Forcing the series to combine multiple scripts because there’s no episodic room
makes me wonder what it means to be a successful series boon?

Anywho, I loved every minute in Season 4 of the series POWER.
I pray the premium network STARZ considers yielding a couple of additional hours.

Mmmm. Delicious drama it is.
The highs and lows of life via scripted biz.

No one sits lightly during any scene where we loose a kid.
Tasha’s emotions
are the tumultuous ocean of a broken and bruised Ms.

Kiss-Kiss but let us not dismiss how the season came to a close:
In Tommy’s mustang with Kanan in back and @shotgun, Ghost.

The Band is back together and dare I say,
they’re all focused on their next hit, “El fatality Dre.”

Hey-ey. For the series to have been expressed via 10 episodes,
KUDOS to every facet and all involved – a relative tale was always told.

The POWER series produces juices that look like gold,
I’m Qui
Flexing POWER with thee about the game being told and sold.

The prey starring in THE SINNER

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on September 8, 2017 at 4:36 am

scorpion and frog.png

Imagine if the frog (the prey) became the aggressor…

Woop! Woop! When it comes to repentance — I’m no beginner
though a whole lot of repentance is needed on that new show, THE SINNER.

Have you seen it? It’s wayward situations up-end the term ‘off the rails.’
After watching this new series, it’s building a case for the existence of hell.

Something has happened to the principle female played by Jessica Biel.
Her name is Cora in the script and her current residence is jail.

Webp.net-gifmaker (5).gif

One minute Cora is having a fine day at the beach with fam and the next minute she’s stabbing Franky in the jugular.

One day while with fam at the beach she just upped and killed a young doctor.
Her husband alone reacted in trying to stop her…
Those that know her say her usual character is so proper…
still amidst loud music on the beach Cora killed Franky, a young doctor.

The name of the series is THE SINNER, though it’s not about church.
Cora once said, this was about a child that she lost via an early birth…

But that may be a lie.
She spoke with conviction but never minded the why.

That’s the thing with Cora – whatever is wrong within her
Is embedded so deep, that it had to be fashioned by ‘a sinner.’

the-sinner-bill-pullman.jpg

Bill Pullman plays the detective whose interested in the WHY!

But I’m not so convinced the sinner is Cora – she’s not the beginning of the fault
Perhaps t’was a guardian or something deep from her past; situational mind-fraud.

Good Lord, the title name is The Sinner and the network hosting it is USA.
I ran through the first 5 episodes via OnDemand though its air day is on Wednesday.
I think Cora’s The PREY.

I wish I could tell you more, but I really cannot.
The series is  so unpredictable – it could’ve been aired on FOX.

Cora is so confused and so am I.
I’m no sinner and can’t stand a lie

yet so many lies are told in this script that it’s hard to decipher the truth when necessary,
I’m Qui
Watching this twisted ruse that’s Cora’s truth – built on the sins of the past that she carries.

It’s intriguing, human-faulty and scary.

POWER Moves & A Couple of Fools

In Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on August 23, 2017 at 4:35 am

donshea-hopkins-power-rainaYes, I saw it all and yes it was purposefully sour.
Before I spill the beans please tell me that you saw POWER?

Bean spilling is about to commence
Tariq isn’t slick and Raina reaped consequence.

Kinfolk, I was sick. I truly thought I would throw up.
I was enjoying watching Donshea Hopkins grow up.

And now this:
The death of a child is hard to dismiss.

FOOL 1: Ray-Ray really messed up when he pulled that trigger.
Raina was just another nobody, the crooked cop figured.

Did you see the eyes of her brother as he stood over her last gurgles of breath?
Tariq looked up at Ray to see him running away then to Raina as she embraced death.

florida-evans-damn.gifCrooked POWER got her.
In specific it was horrific and Ray-Ray shot her.

Florida Evans said it best: “Damn, damn, damn!
Where’s that Dr. Seuss book, Green Eggs and Ham?

If only Tasha could read her little girl another bedtime story tonight.
The femme sibling role lost its soul; the writers will no longer write.

Raina St. Patrick has met her scripted demise.
But did you see her brothers eyes?

I did. They were charged with new and calculating views.
It just didn’t appear that his soul felt dear about bidding Raina ado.

In other devilish deeds
spawned from Sundays POWER‘ful seeds:

power-dre-smokingFOOL 2: Dre is definitely smoking but it ain’t weed.
I’m weighing this by the size of his recent misdeeds.

He orchestrated Julios death
And has the Toros Locos walking to the left.

They are under suspicion and now being watched…
Warehouse distributions for Tommy are up in smoke – shot.

Tommy is the one eyeballing the Loco’s and feeling a big testy,
He has duly reached out for help from his dad,Tony Teresi.

The show yielded to credits after Tommy fist bumped snow.
He was still on his vent at the episodes end – but of Raina’s – he does not know.

Eh yo! It was emotionally pulling to say the least,
I’m Qui
On these POWER Moves & a couple of Fools. The entire production is beast!

As for the host, the black and gold STARZ:
Take care of this series – its relativity goes hard!!!

Waking Up to TIMOTHY, again

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows on July 26, 2017 at 11:13 am

I initially posted this piece in March of 2017, though as the days progress I feel compelled to post it again for further review.
Allow me to reintroduce the topic of tyrannical juice via TIMOTHY SNYDER to you.
A little insight on how dictators come through:

divider blk_south

waking-up-is-keyI’ve been with my guy for more than two decades, (since high school), so waking up to Timothy Snyder was something new to me. Good thing my guy isn’t the jealous type, because Timothy has a book that has caught my attention and demands ‘curl-up-in-the-bed’ time, so I’ve been ‘curled-up.’

How did I meet Timothy? Bill Maher introduced me to him last Friday night (I’m quick! 🤗) – he was a panel guest. Did you see the show? It was enlightening and heavy all at the same time. And by “heavy” I mean in yielding brain lobe capacity. You know THAT works for me. Oui! Meet Timothy:

timothy-snyder-tyranny

I met Timothy on REAL TIME with Bill Maher on Friday
He was discussing historical tyranny; education always equals a high day.

I kept the channel locked. Here is where I wanted to play,
it was pretty good stuff. Here’s a 5-min vid of Tim’s informative say:

Heyyyy! That’s whats up. Did you get that?
Aw, you know me. I’m a knowledge hungry she,
and yes — I definitely dug that.

It was so good, so proven and so deep…
I think I’ll transcribe the conversation for “readers on ‘the creep.'”

But that will take a little bit of time.
Peep YouTube – now, before they kill the line.

Me? On this Wednesday morning, I’m feeling fine.
I’ve got a few hours pending before tackling my grind.

I’m hitting you up, because you’ve been on my mind.
Good morning baby. I’m on my lobe-lift grind.

The day is early and knowledge is a good serve anytime!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’m content with spooning this book of mine.

I’m imploring you to expand your mind and to read a book today
Protect yourself, health and wealth from the tyrannical methods of yesterday!
DO Be wary of it creeping up again; Resist “the tyranny sway.”
