NEWS PERUSE_GossipGood morning sweetheart. Did you sleep well?
Did you dream a little bit; were you the hero for a spell?

Me? All is well and the last 2-days have been spent
With me recovering from a car accident.

It happened Monday after I talked to you,
It was hairy but I made it through.

I think I’ll do a little myofascial massage therapy.
My muscles are pretty tense  – I’m a few years passed 23.
😊 I really have to take care of me.

Anywho, enough about my mishaps, what about you?
Have you been following the headline news?

I hope that you have not, though today I could not refuse
For old times sake I’ve pulled together a NEWS PERUSE:

It’s been a minute
since you and I have been all-up-in-it.

Now, I won’t linger on any story, I am just going to say this
The health care repeal is a battle uphill and the last vote missed.

Don’t get too happy about this – the pres isn’t giving up.
He insists a bill is to be passed, he’s got corporate taxes to cut.


Letter Dictating can cause heartburn

And then there’s this one story that out sizzles Alkaseltzer in fizz
Everyday there’s a glitchy bump with Trump and this “Russia biz.”

This administration is on course to be documented as a no forgetter —
And what was the president doing dictating Donald Jr.’s [Russian meeting] letter?

See? He needs supervision.
He thinks he’s the star of a reality series on television.

And he kind of is.
This NEWS PERUSE is a take and a give.

We’re taking what the administration is giving us.
Like it or not – it’s all pretty rough:

Highlights that we cannot refuse.
Imagine how we look across the worlds view.

today and I don’t mind
doing a little reading, fast forward and rewind

To see where we’re going as a people; will America still be considered charming
after the harm that we are self-imposing and our stance on global warming?

Love? We need some more. I think Love hung up the phone.
Love? We better spread more and we better start at home.

General Kelly fired him.

Resist from lulling into a low in your level of morality,
The pres was kidding about encouraging police brutality.

He was also kidding and merely shooting the bull about
when he started telling that rated-R [yacht] joke to the members of The Boy Scouts.




Our kids need help building tomorrow and tomorrow is built today.
Do not allow this period that we’re in to desensitize your morals away.

Taking civil rights away from the gay. How is that helping humanities cause?
And what’s with waiving our environmental standards to build the border wall?

Is a wall really that important? Is that what’s sending morale to hell?
Perhaps we’re over reacting, like we did with Clintons emails?

I don’t know for sure, I’m speculating via a griot fuse,
I’m Qui
Running through the periodical view to erect this NEWS PERUSE.

I think it’s limp.

My friend is gone.

Tina Jo Reese & Tavian Joseph Sabur 2011

Last night about 8pm, I received a call from a family member telling me that they had bad news. They asked if I were sitting, I said, “Yes.” It was my mother calling, (I put her on speaker), she wanted to let me know that “Tina Reese has died.”

I didn’t know what to say. I’m thinking, What? How? and Why? and then blank.  I laid the phone on the coffee table. She said, “Qui. Are you there?”

ME: Yes. Ma’am. I am. Pardon me, I don’t know where I went in thought. What happened? How mom?
MOM: She was on her way to her daughters [volleyball] game when she was involved in a car accident on the highway. Her daughter was notified as soon as word could travel. She arrived at the hospital to see her mother, but she had expired just minutes before.”

I sunk into the couch. My husband took the phone. I went out onto the patio to look into the sky and try to take this all in. My heart… crushed. My mind… blank. My voice… disabled.

I wrote a story about TJ Sabur in September of 2011 in a piece called, “My Baby is Gone.” 10-year old TJ was killed by a drunk driver while his mother, Tina Reese drove him to football practice during Labor Day weekend on Friday afternoon. When I made my way to the hospital to her bedside, she said, “Hello QuiQui. My baby is gone.”  There hasn’t been one day that has gone by since that she has not expressed her love for TJ, nor did she miss an opportunity to mention that they would meet again.

Folks. This is my current situation tonight. Tina and TJ have reunited.

It’s the best way I can put things together in my mind — the best way that I can deal. Tina was a beautiful person and has always been a beautiful spirit. A positive force. May her memory and legacy remain in kind.

Here are the details to TINA REESE’s HOME GOING [Funeral]:

Say a prayer for TJ’s sister and Tina Reese’s little girl, Camille Cherry. She needs you today – she may need you tomorrow. I’m going to be here for her — for the long run.


My friend is gone, and is surely with her baby.
She was one graceful, all-inclusive loving lady.

Tina never missed a beat in being MOM OF THE YEAR.
When her kids needed support- she was there to cheer!

She was the designated taxi driver. Transporter of Goodness & Love.
God saw her driven purpose and ‘made way’ for her “above.”

TJ was there to meet her. You better believe that I am telling the truth.
Nothing happens by mistake – when He moves, I stand in mute.

I’m grateful to have known Tina and to be connected to her seed still,
I’m Qui
Aunti Qui to Cami. Because FAMILY CONNECT surpasses DNA. For real.

Keep Tina’s family in your prayers… They will need them to heal.

R.I.P. Tina Reese

I’ll miss you dear friend… dear sister.
