Waking up to Timothy Snyder, again

An ALARM Clock

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 Tuesday 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.”

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.

Let’s SHACK up. I’ll meet you there!

the-shack

You remember the place, don’t you? THE SHACK. I do love going there. ❤

Please tell me that you’ve seen this exemplary and remarkable film. If you haven’t – put it on the list.

The Shack is based off the (same name) novel by William P. Young and it’s a real winner chicken dinner. It’s jammed packed with so many “ah-ha moments” that it releases concentrated amounts of nourishment into your soul via depth of comprehension. Yes, far more than any chicken soup could ever render.

The film was released in March of this year though I’ve only seen it just a few weeks ago and boy, did it get me. Starring Sam WorthingtonOctavia Spencer and Tim McGraw this film exhibits divinity in vision and direction by Stuart Hazeldine. Before this film I’d not ever heard of William P. Young or Stuart Hazledine. Today – I truly couldn’t imagine not knowing of them.

So what is this shacking thing all about? Why has it got me feeling some kind of way? Because it to spoke to me about being “some kind of way.” It was confrontational and welcoming. This reel yields life changing potential.

No story spoiler here, just encouragement and a trailer:

I’ve seen it twice and I was effected the same way both times. Not only do I plan on watching it again, but I plan to introduce a friend. As good as this film makes me feel, it would be selfish of me not to share it; thus, I’m sharing it with you. Do yourself a favor get this film in your sights and sip on it. If chicken soup is legacy to be good for the soul, then The Shack is comprised of nutrients much like the marrow.

So when I say, “Let’s SHACK up. I’ll meet you there!” I mean,
You have got to partake with me, this soul reviving scene.

Life can be mundane, prone to yielding to the same ol’ thangs:
Rituals, broken rules, and legacies that need to be examined and/or changed.

Revisit your foundations, your beliefs and your not-so-distant past…
A good place to rendezvous? I recommend The Shack.

See the film or get it in paperback. Either form is truly fair.
Want someone to tag along? Hit me up. I’m happy to meet you there.

I’m all about self improvements. I’ll bring the curly string!
I’m Qui
All about shacking up. Who knew this would be my thing? 😊

Peep the film.
Get lost in what it means.

Prescott, Arizona

November, November.  How are you my sweet?
So fairly you’ve come in with a refreshing spin.
I’ve missed your seasonal release.

The Summer was a beast; so very trying and relentless.
We embraced her warmth, a 115-day charm –
our AC’s had no rest.

Alas! Our air conditioners finally got a break this week,
while good ol’  Dallas, TX  is reviving the devil’s heat.

Dallas will be warmed to the tune of 92 degrees.
Texas does it’s own thing in the face of Summers retreat.

You do know that all four seasons run-at-will in Texas. Do remember.
And while I miss Arlington, TX I am enjoying the dawn of AZ’s November.

So sweet, you are.
The fairest by far.

It truly is good to see you.
You’re the perfect distraction from world news.

So beautifully diverse, your natural views. I admire you -360.
I’m Qui
Wearing a sweater this morning because your dawn is quite nippy.

Good morning November.
You’ve got my attention.

The weekend show has to be about FL and Puerto Rico

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows, Video on October 20, 2017 at 2:17 pm

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.

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.

If at first you don’t succeed – try, try and try again.
When you gain mad speed, don’t forget “the legs” that have been your friend.

Push thru like the background dude. Notice the hind-leg Kick!

WHOSE LEGS: Yours, your friends, your agent’s, your mothers, your partner, etc. The legs of your success is everyone that supported you and carried you – whether you asked them to or not.

Whoever it was that assisted you up and over that hill — remember them during the coast.
Whilst you coast, enjoy your accomplishments and forfeit not  to be learning the most.
Kick, Push, Kick, Push, Kick, Push, Kick, Push.  Coast!

Un-supportive folk are comparable to burnt toast –
your grill doesn’t cook that stuff no ‘mo.
Do yourself a favor and please let them and that go.

Always remember whose had your back the most.
It takes a lot to propel ahead — thus remember them on the coast.

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.

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.

Good morning and oui! It’s good to know there’s hope for what ills…

This piece is for my girl, Wendy Williams
who’s always good for some 411 spill-yum!

It seems her husband has polished UP  his “side chick” reelin’
and purchased her an 800Grand home – that Wendy ain’t feelin.’

More tea, for the spillin:’

This is all about KARMA. Karma ain’t no chump.
She has come for Wendy Williams. She will come for Trump.

Karma is real, I didn’t make her up.
Live by the sword – heal your own cuts.

I talk about karma all of the time
and Wendy keeps gossip lit & on shine.

So when gossip is addressed to Wendy and Kevin – alone
somehow it ends up at his side chicks home.

Must be the mailbox label (see video)… Karma ain’t no chump,

Good morning Wendy Williams, today you bear the GOSSIPED Hump.

Dear Wendy: Regardless of the charted facts,

the point is NO ONE enjoys being the butt of GOSSIP.
