Tuesday’s Mood Sway

In Communication, Griot, Science, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on October 20, 2020 at 5:15 am

Good morning goodness. How are you feeling? I’m over-joyed from all of the physical love reeling.

I’ve been hanging pretty tight with family and friends – to the point where I can’t tell where the line of DNA begins or ends

as of late. Good love is on my plate and for that I am grateful. Every time it is on the menu, I indulge in a plateful.

What about you? Good love and a long hug can pull you through.

Give it another go. I promise you – that it is so.

How whilst your day go? I am already in route. I was up to greet the sun with full gladness – no pout.

Monday came through and I went about. Good morning, good Tuesday, pray-tell your good route.

The hump of tomorrow will find me composing short scripts. I’ve got a project to film; I’m connected at the hip

to this one. No working title to share – just pending fun.

It’s literal audio with visuals; you could call it a show. Something like RED SHOE DIARIES; archived years ago:

Remember that? I’m a “stick-it-to-the-ribs” kind of cat. This new project and I… well, we go way back.

Before my knowledge of griot, PlayboysKitti was my psuedo. Words and verbs lift emotions higher than herbs; ergo, — I envision snippets of inner thoughts inside of my portfolio.

It shall be so.

Like Beyonce’s visual album, I desire to hold you close:

Humanity. You and I – we are family. Connective words birth a better reality.

I use basic vocab to convey history. The way I copulate with words is no mystery.

But it works. I can be both graceful and grateful at all times or none. I can be both an adult and a child at heart; life is short, so let’s have fun.

What is your sum? —- If there’s good in youI want some.

I know that you have the goods, so I’ll crest the woods to see it. If Shakespeare had a family member near, I’d likely be it.

Sonnets are about my head — from the time I awake until I go to bed. I spend the in-between time chronicling what the moment says.

Humans march from behind while evolution moves ahead. Like Shakespeare, I’ll document what our era said.

It will read poetic and cool; a pulse of population, status quo, and formal schools.

What will the future think of our best and our highest? Whatever will history say regarding our thoughts on Science?

Mercy, mercy! Merci beaucoup to longevity! I pray that I live long in griot;  legacy is the immortal key.

Communication is my thing; I do like to play.

I’m Qui

Thanks for kicking it with me during my Tuesday Mood Sway.

Godspeed to the prosperity that is coming your way.

TODAY.

Sometimes

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement, Travel, Video on October 18, 2020 at 9:07 am

Stop to admire.

Sometimes I have to stop. Do you ever do that? If for no other reason than to just look back…

 

to see how far you have come. Sometimes, I need to stop and stand in the sun. The rays shine through my torso and into my lungs. 

 

I, in hiking shoes, climb towards the fun; a mountainous sum.

 

Heights that resemble life… I keep going. Reflections and thoughts of new love… I keep sowing.

 

Self-Preservation… sometimes I have to do it. A remote find, relax & unwind; it’s the best way to work through it.

 

Looking to change things up? Get to it! — Fast forward, rewind; find opportunity, and pursue it.

 

The hillside? I ran all through it. I ran into a Javelina – who was “self-preservation” fluid.

He was feeding on a bush on my resort patio. I was just about to go out and stargaze, but thought, “Nope.”

Because I’m not used to collared peccary on my patio. So, I stayed inside and played a game of roll-o.

Yes. I brought a mate along with me, yo. We forwent stargazing to make the percale glow.

And it did. Percale glowing is something parents forbid… good thing I’m not a kid.

I love life. I love you. I love nature. I love sharing the view.

 

This resort finds me preparing to retreat. Life is a party, but I don’t live on the beach. 

 

I am the beach. It’s not a Freudian slip. Without preservation, one could become the bitch.

 

Sometimes we all have to stop. When faced with a mountain — go on and climb atop.

I will see you there. In love and self-preservation – all is fair.

 

Forget about composing war. Stargaze and/or make your own stars.

 

A successful life is often lived in the fast lane. I challenge your comprehension of that frame.

Slow down. Look around. Meditate & pray; keep your mind sound.

You deserve more. Please don’t run yourself raggedyto relax is a verb.

I’m Qui 

Sometimes it’s not all about me. But when it is, self-preservation is word.

Leave the fast running to a story that you heard: 

So Far So Good

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, TV Shows, Video on October 7, 2020 at 5:15 am
Seriously. It’s good.

While on hiatus, I found a whole lot of space and time
to take it easy, live life breezy, fast forward, and rewind.

Delving into streaming series is how I spent my time.
Entertained I was; the time was surely mine.

I journeyed LOST IN SPACE and got lost in AWAY. I finished both series just yesterday.

I am in the current throws of LOVECRAFT COUNTRY and FARGO.
Chris Rock is maturing well; I dig him as Loy Cannon – in a gangster role.

The comedian portrays a community boss — and I do like.
Fargo went to the hood to storyline spike.

Good choice. Chronicle yesterday’s relative and give it voice.
So far, so good inside of HBO’s horror series hood.

Are you watching Lovecraft Country? It’s magic & black folk and civil-rights funky. I like the horror hue, so I’m bringing it up to you.

Are you watching?

Fargo, o’ Fargo. The town’s mixed couple conveys all funeral shows.
But what does it mean that their daughter is sharp like Einstein, yo?
I don’t know, I don’t know, and such details keep me glued to the show.

FARGO’s town mortician, Thurman Smutney and his daughter Ethelrida.

Fargo is fairly early in its 4th season while Lovecraft’s season 1 is about to close.
Lovecraft Country fights monsters as a family while gentrification takes the lead in Fargo.

The four streaming shows are all Grade-A to watch.
Good writing is exciting and thwarts watching the clock.

Boredom has come to a halt. Good streaming entertainment can be bought.
Cop it and watch it.

I dig YouTubeTV, HBOMax, FX, Netflix, and Amazon, too.
While on hiatus, I sipped cocktails while watching a few.

Last week’s retreat was good for me. Did I miss thee? Like you wouldn’t believe, but hiatuses are oh so necessary.

What are the headlines on your plate today?
Have you been keeping up with the news as of late?

I have. The broadcasts have been nothing at which to laugh. COVID19’s spike resists our requests to go flat. We’re all concerned a bit about that. How do we get our collective good health back?

The Coronavirus tally is running… | November 3rd is coming.

Inside of the footer of this page in the leftt-hand slot, the PLAN TO VOTE Image is capacity hot.

Have you clicked it? A planyou must get it.

So far, so good we are doing our best. Today’s hump is an assist — not a test.

Thank God for the elevation that allows us to see more; for providing us the space to love and increase our emotional IQ score.

Speaking of, the LOST IN SPACE series is full of emotional exercise. The last episode of season 2 caused water to well up in my eyes 

continually. The credits rolled over compassion and humanity.
The AWAY series boasts love, human touch, and family.
Relationships seem to rule in and out of gravity and that’s okay with me.

So far, so good. We are mid-week for sure,
I’m Qui
Talking show-shop with thee is a serial cure.

The moral is beautiful.

Weekend Speakin’

In Advertise, Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, Video on October 2, 2020 at 5:15 am

I feel like a verser, a freestyler, a battle rapper, a babe. I feel a moment coming upon me where I don’t want to behave.

Putting it on the mic is brave. Check 1-2. Can you hear me > hear me?The echo is my signature, yo; philosophers endear me.

The unintelligent could fear thee; agree with them quickly. Handle your business, avoid glibness, and return to base swiftly.

The weekend is speaking, and it is saying to you, “Keep your head on a swivel, be a giving-giver, and build a rep of following through.”

This piece is composed for you. What have you got planned for the weekend?

I’m Qui

Sweet on thee and the griot POV. The weekend is ours to win.

Let’s get it in.

Queen Key + 3 from BAP

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.

Monday’s Mood

Today is a good day. I can feel it in my bones.
Today is a good day because I’m beloved by my T-jones.

Today is a good day because I get to talk to you.
Monday is one of my favorite days; it conveys the week anew.

I’m wearing a flower headband sitting upright in bed and I’m sipping cold jo.’
The sun is on its way to meet the day. I’m starting mine with you, yo.

How did your weekend go? Was it a productive scene?
I spent time pressing play and rewind on Beyonce’s Black Is King.

I can’t get enough of that feel-good piece.
God bless Disney for such a sweet and reflective release.

Beyonce and Jay Z — as a power couple are beast!
They portray what they feel and uphold “the real;”  
they are investing in legacy.

Home is where your heart is, and your heart resides within.
No matter where you go or where you live, you will always be among kin.

Life is short. Live every moment ‘up and smile as much as you please.
Monday’s possibilities are for your realities. Conquer them with ease.

Happy Labor Day, baby. Will you spend it eating saucy, good food?
I’m Qui
Glad to be spending it with thee – I’m forgoing the delicious ‘Q for more produce.

Lifestyle changes are always in play.

Blow The Whistle

In Communication, dance, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on September 5, 2020 at 8:00 am

Yes, I did. I woke up with Too Short’s song in my head.
I didn’t yawn much but did a lot of bobbing to the beat in bed. 😛

I booty-popped down the stairwell and into the kitchen.
Once I was on the tiled floor I put some real work in.

calculating-cat.jpg

You should’ve seen me. I can really go.
Afterward, I brewed a real stiff cup of jo.

The weekend is at hand and I plan to lead the band.
I’m redecorating the house; new furniture is in the plan.

A manicure and pedicure will also be had.
I’ll laser the middle because later I’ll be bad.

I’m not booty-popping for no specific reason.
Fall is on the way and I want to have the tightest season.

Wink-wink. You know.
Be grown this morn’ and let your imagination go.

It’s ok to let loose a little. Ain’t nobody here but you and I,
I’m Qui
jam with me; move in sync and share the intent in your eyes.

I want to know what you really mean.
Let every move strengthen the scene.

No Weak End Here

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on September 4, 2020 at 7:56 am

Good morning, good morning, good morning to you. Friday is up for the taking. What do you want to do?

Have you been enjoying the presidential candidates in their new styles of campaigns? November is less than 60-days away; patriotic votes will reign.

The contrast between the two candidates is so very stark. One displays a bleak reality and the other one exhibits hope and heart.

It’s good to have choices; please do stay informed — of who’s saying what, shooting from hip or gutdecipher the intent of charm.

Polls roll in & polls roll out; some are tight and some are wacky.
I should know, I watch a show that rosters Steve Kornacki.

Polls don’t voice the sum of our whole, they are just insight. I watch lightly, and pray mightily: “God please make America alright.”

I watched the film HARRIET last night and I was blown away. Cynthia Erivo is everything, yo! Dare I say that she is one of the greats?

Have you seen her work in The OUTSIDER? Her flex of skill has an Edward Norton appeal; I know few who are brighter.

Tom Hanks is one of the few who submerges himself in a script. Cynthia Erivo is neck and neck; she breathes every moment real.

She also starred in Bad Times at The El Royale. Artists who eat, sleep, and birth script deep are craftsmen I call pals.

Cynthia’s capacity marks her “rare biz.” Every piece that she’s in is a hit. Who in the world is her agent? Kudos to Cynthia’s career dimensions.

I’ve also been watching a great deal of Disney Plus. The BLACK IS KING album is worth all of the fuss. Nourishment by Beyonce is a mass must;

she sings parallels and makes generational relations. Her video FORMATION should be the voting theme across the nation.

Are you ready? I sure am. The weekend is at hand.
I’m Qui
always thinking of thee. Dimensions keep us from being bland.

Jester or Majestic

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Video on August 28, 2020 at 12:04 am

Q: What is a jester?

A: A good understanding’s arrester.

Self hate and ill understandings invoke sore and fester. Civility is in a fight and the jester yells, “arrest her!”

Qui

Pay no mind to the jester. He does not understand that to wear such a suit is to be dressed by another man.

A fashion not tailored for the backside of his own hands. Oh man, oh, man. There’s no favor in being bland.

Whatever you do — don’t don a jester’s suit.

Use your energy and platform to help folks stay alive. Respect begets respect – via compassion, we all can thrive.

I know that you know who you are. You used to be folks’ favorite star.

Love? We still have it, so please search your heart. Your skill is a hoot; versed in scripted parts.

You used to make us laugh but these times require no “jest it.” You are bigger by dimensions but framing-up far less than majestic.

Momma always says “if you don’t have anything good to say – then don’t say nothing at all.“ I like to key-key & ha-ha, but not as much as I love to stand tall.

Humping Horror

In Advertise, Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows, Video on August 26, 2020 at 5:15 am

Good morning beloved. How are you this morn? I’m awake, for opportunity’s take; I’m bright eyed with no yawn.

How art thou, multimedia kin? The week’s halfway – we’re halfway in.

I am poised to watch LOVECRAFT COUNTRY at its begin. Are you on-board with the series? it’s a Jordan Peele kin.

I am enjoying Angela Bassett’s husband starring as George Freeman. Jurnee Smollett and Jonathon Majors are Jim-Crow-surviving friends.

The series centers around negro and witch hunting. Episode 1 starts out with a lot of gunning,

but the melanin prey gets away to live another day. Misha Green is the co-creator with Jordan who birthed the way.

Lovecountry Craft airs at primetime on Sunday’s. With no UNDERGROUND series, HBO get’s all the play:

HBO – Based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he meets up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

Lovecraft Country is executive produced by showrunner Misha Green along with J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller.

Are you watching this series? O’ do tune in. Sunday evening episode 3 will begin.

The rise of the sun always yields vampires a good singe… Season one is so much fun that the number of episodes produced are 10. Let the fight begin!
