Monday Morning Goodness

Goodness always rises – so rise, kinfolk, rise!
Thank God for the day as you open your eyes.

Pull the curtains back and look into the sky,
then hit the home gym, because you’re high on life.

You don’t have a home gym? You’re just not living that large?
Who are you kidding? You have the living room and a big ol’ garage.

Those spaces are good enough! You just need a little room.
Resort to exercise and reading more to forgo “outing dooms.”

It is not safe to mingle and relax social distancing rules; take it slow.
Going out is for essential workers, city managers and confused folk?

I love us all, but we have got to be real.
You may be bored indoors, but COVID19 has the field.

Please don’t feel invincible now;
don’t say “frack it” and go out anyhow.

I really don’t understand…
Why don’t we act more cautious across the land?

For the sake of capitalism?
Hmph. I raise you 1 wisdom:

clowns-in-clown-car

Don’t ride with the clowns.

Don’t join that clown-cramped parade.
The country opening up “regardless” – is a charade.
Science says: “It just isn’t safe.”

Monday Morning Goodness, please be good to us on a whole.
Help us to resist walking and running into a big ol’ hole.

We can do this.
Common sense and compassion will pull us through this.

Don’t huff & puff or hiss — because you have to keep your distance today,
I’m Qui
Excited about we, Mondays and Goodness.  Our united legacy is in play.

A Word on Math and Science

In Communication, Griot, News, Science, Self Improvement on May 4, 2020 at 10:00 am
pulp-fiction-spoof_math-and-science.gif

It is what it is.


.
Math and Science
matter around the globe like no other.
Math and Science needs your compliance; ’tis no gripe from your mother.

It’s important that you learn to add and subtract in order to see
that things are not adding up in the world, the way that they should be.

Correction lenses help us to see the fine print
Bills don’t stop. We have to pay the rent.

Precious time has been spent on the dilly and the dally.
The U.S. is winning the battle of losing to the COVID19 tally.

Many lives have been lost and many are hanging in limbo…
Circumstance is forcing an uptick in Math and Science, yo.

An inch is not a mile and a mile is not an inch.
That foul smell isn’t fresh air; that smell is a stench.

Science can help you measure that; science supports air quality.
Not sure where to find the 411?  I love science, please follow me.

Are we in it (life) for the long run, or just until the next few paychecks?
It’s just a question on a Monday; concerned with the yoke around your neck.

No one — and I mean no one besides us — is forging ahead for our good.
The world is what it is; let its intentions be understood.bare_chaps

Take care for your lives.
May your chaps cover your hides.

Laugh out loud,
narrate and be proud
to live your truths.
God is with and will cover you.
You know exactly what to do.

I’m doing it with ya.
Don’t let reopening take away something the state didn’t give ya…

LIFE.
Remember Math & Science. Alright?

Should I see you out and about because you are an essential,
I’m Qui
and I’m in PPE because my love and support are with ya.’

More LOVE on a MONDAY

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on April 27, 2020 at 5:00 am


.

This is a great place to start loving. Isn’t it?
Treat MONDAY like a love interest, wake up and start “hitting it.”

You know that feeling that you get when you are excited on the inside?
You tend to brandish a smirk when there’s something you don’t want to hide.

Recollect. Ah, yes. You know the feeling.
Love is in the air; engage in heart healing.

love button_arousal-balm.jpg

Purchase your own at InTheGrove.com

If there’s one thing this world is missing — it must be more of this.
So let’s start this week off by engaging in LOVE bliss.
Choose someone random and blow them a kiss.

Just “love on your neighbor.” You can do this without being physically close.
Form a suspenseful text to those you love (and want to ‘neck) –
and send them out around the globe.
Send right away and in a few short days, you’ll be relationship-texting in droves.

I suppose if you’re a steady kind of gal or guy,
You may only text one person; seeking only one reply.

Is that right?
Do what feels good by day and by night.

For me, what feels good is genuine and authentic love.
I’ll take a word, a whistle, a text and a hug.
I love to be loved.

Speaking of Love, is that still P-Diddy‘s pseudonym/name?
Yeah. Well text him, too – he’s ’bout that love game.

The world needs more love… I need it too.
I woke up this morning feeling charming and rolled right over to you.

Good morning o’ goodness and how do you do?
Will you love us back o’ Monday? Let us make it through.

COVID19 is on the ensue; robbing us of immediate fun days.
Love, please be effective at our connective and commandeer this Monday.

1-romantic-young-couple-sitting-near-sofa-blanket-home_23-2147890966.jpgSo why the slow jams video atop of the write today?
Well if you’re at home and not alone (wink-wink) I suggest you play

the way that grown folks do.
Sit near the couch with cover across your laps, pocket-play & smooch.

Remember that?
Donning the covers… pretending to co-nap? 😛

Well, the blanky game is still in fashion.
Insert more love on this Monday; insert passion and action.

The headline music video is ROYALTY FREE,
so listen as long as you like; pair it up with natural steam.

Make Monday a dream that you don’t ever want to wake from,
I’m Qui
Still in bed, with love-birds about my head while composing this yum.

If it’s me, who you’ll be texting, (ooo-wee) send mine with a virtual hug.

Getting It In This Weekend

Good morning, Friday. I am glad that you’re here.
I’ve been craving you since Monday; you’re my closing, dear.

For you, I always cheer and this weeks filming went well.
I did what I had to for the talent and crew to not fail.

Last night I looked over the film footage as I labeled it to edit.
Each scene played naturally; as if no script and none had read it.

That’s what’s up dear, Friday. I am in high spirits today,
because my fam is near and dear and doesn’t mind my script play.

What have you been up to over recent days?
Are you staying at home and out of the way

of those with essential careers who must go to and fro?
I pray that you are, because they could be a-symptomatic, yo.

I may be also, therefore, I’m staying inside — until I am tested.
I feel fine, but that doesn’t vibe until I’m officially vetted.

How about you?
What’cha know and what’cha into?

Yesterday, after we wrapped, we took a quick drive
to a nearby lake to see if the scene was alive

and unfortunately it was.
Folks were showing physical distancing little love.

I’m sure that most of folks strolling the lake were doing so with fam.
Still, the gatherings were quite thick; CV is a socialite’s damn.

Oh well. I suppose life will be enjoyed and spent.
Besides CV is deadly to only 20%.

DO WHAT!?
Those stats are nuts!

go-in-the-house_lady.gifGet back. Go back inside for a while.
God ain’t forgot that you’re His child.

You do not have to meet Him so soon.
This isn’t the end; your life is at noon.

Let’s celebrate each day that we’re alive as a high day
starting with staying indoors a little more – this Friday.

What do you say, o’ beloved neighbor?
If you insist on getting ill – CV can pull favor.

Do not muster up the nerve to “go outside anyway.”
I need you to be well until the vaccine is underway.

Today is a good day for us to do our most diligent due,
and lean not to our understanding — that this is a harmless flu.

Feeling bored? Pick up a new hobby or two.
Take up painting, sewing, or running a few.

Me? I’m kicking it with the kid today; she’s all about “natural enhancing,”
so she and I will occupy the living room floor to do some African club dancing.


.
Are you free to catch the beat? Care to join in?
Click play on the video and vibe with me, kin.

Movement is the good stuff — if you can manage to get it in.
I’m Qui
Happy Friday baby, wake up and give your hips a spin.

Get out of bed & dance or you can dance in…

Mondays Mercies

Mondays-Mercies.jpg
.
Good morning beloved. Did you rise early today?
I did. Me and the fam have plans to work and play.

How on Earth did you spend your Easter Sunday?
I wrote a short film and storyboarded the way.

I’m in a Short Film production challenge with friends.
We are charged to produce a film about physical distance.

A financial prize will go a long way on the rent.
Composing a comedy is a how my Easter was spent.

And then boom! The alarm went off this morning.
I was up at at 4am, with a quick goodbye to yawning.

I-want-to-be-with-you.gifGood morning beloved! I sure wish that you were here.
This “physical distancing thing” has me yearning to be near.

Monday be Merciful to us all and level out the numbers
of folk affected by the virus; official ineptitude bungle.

I arose this morning early because I like to pray;
check in with God, thank Him for my mind and bod,
before going forward to play out the day.

While kneeling in reverence I thought about you,
and inserted into my prayer, that God pull you through.
Check in with Him, for what you should and shouldn’t do.
He’s got the whole world… so he got you, too.

Live more mindfully during this era. Pray for divine & life saving insight.
Wear PPE to protect your family, KL, & me! And “we gone be alright!”

What do you think? How’s the fam feeling?
Boris Johnson was sick, and now he’s healing.

The world could use a little bit  more of that. I’d say it’s quite thirsty.
The world is full of much ignorant bull, I pray today for Monday’s Mercies.

Could you use some? Mercy is a verb
when the kids are at home from school and on your nerves.

Is that what’s up?
Consider the kids to be “gifted love.”

Think about it — you work so much to hold-it-all on the line.
When were you ever going to carve out so much family time?

who-me_black-guy.gif

Yes, you.

You probably were not. So, this moment-in-time is a gift. Do let it be.
Dig-in and wear a grin as you thank God for Monday’s Mercies.

Every free moment that you have today, please use it to pull rank,
by conversing with God (in your mind) and throwing in a few “thanks.”

It will go a long way in your energy yield and I’m confident that you’ll find,
Monday to be full of beloved Mercies wrapped in a Covid19 time.

Everything is going to be fine once we, collectively heed and yield respect to,
I’m Qui
Happy to be among the living with thee. We will only get better if we expect to.

Thursday’s Technical Tea

It’s Thursday sweetheart; it’s Thursday dear kin.
Let’s inhale the freshly grounded aroma of Luckin.

Google Trends told me about Luckin as I sipped jo’ from my personal tumbler.
Printed details of their high propels has invoked chatter of inflated numbers.

Are you a innovation watcher? I certainly can be.
World trends are a nosy girls epitome.

Today is Autism Awareness Day
and an app is trending – to lead the way.

Ali Wentworth is trending; on IN LIVING COLOR, she was a hit.
Unfortunately today Ali is headlining because Ali is sick.

God bless Ali and all others who are in a fight.
Please know I am pulling for you to come out of this alright.

What does “Shelter-in-place mean,” — it’s a popular question among friends.
This is also number four on the list of worldwide Google trends.

Then there are RIGOR pains associated with the virus fight.
Chris Cuomo said rigor pains makes him feel like
he’s being beaten-up from the inside.
He also chipped a tooth during the viral ride.

PACE YOURSELF. Its a MOUNTAIN.

About the MAUNA KEA.

Yes, it looks like there are limited reasons to smile, but the ability still exists.
Our issue here is a mountain not a mole hill and is absent of bliss.

I do get it.
So let us come with it

and buckle in for this thing.
Pray to God for the clearance of long suffering.

Inevitability is what it is.
Pace yourself. We  got this.

Comparing this era to a rollercoaster, rollercoasters can be serious,
so to not secure the rider on a ride – is an idea of delirium.

The Covid19 era is a journey up a mountain and back down again.
I picked up that inferred analogy from a Cuomo kin.

I love being in the know.
I am loving Governor Cuomo.

God bless Chris Cuomo; his little bro. – 
for Chris has tested positive, yo.

Don’t lose your lunch, just send good vibes.
With protocol, he’ll take care to sustain his life.

How are you feeling today? Don’t panic. Please.
You’ll fair better if you remain calm; focus optimistically.
Breathe.

We’ll be okay, either way. I spoke with a FL resident today,
he was low on “positive vibes;” difficulties with the day.

But he was calling me on business; not a social “hey.”
Business fell by the wayside as I composed a “sunny say,”

that he just could not bring himself to relate to.
Our perception co-signs what the universe will do.

We are all on a hike.
Cases in the U.S. are on a spike.

Take a deep breath, we will be okay.
Calmer heads are ideal to outlive this day.

Stop hoarding all of the damn toilet tissue, too. 😛
You control your fate. Tomorrow will see you.

Life is about what you believe to be true.
Calm down, collect yourself; ask God to see you through.

childish-no.gifIf you don’t have to leave  the house today – please don’t.
If friends insist you invite them over – tell them you won’t. 😉

…….

Uh-un. It ain’t happening.
Practice SOCIAL DISTANCE & MASKING.

You got that?
I’m really looking for a moon suit hat.

Good sense will have to bridge the gap for now.
So, me and my kin are staying in the house.

There’s television, homework, app games, and the like;
there’s deep conversations to be had with loved ones in your life.

Do it. Why not?
Work out those relationship knots.

relationship-workout

Work it out.

I’m doing it.
Is relationship work a bitter meal? Start chewing it.

Once the danger of socializing is lifted,
I think better relationships are what we’ll be gifted.

That’s going to be great! So, keep that in mind
and give that distant relationship a little talk time.

The apex of NY’s Covid19 cases may be seen 7-12 days.
Stay in the house; though if you’re out, cover your mouth
and cease-not to pray. We will get past this day.

So smile already. This is a mountain climb, not a walk in the park.
I’m Qui
In all terrain shoes, with a water pack, snacks, and a flashlight for the dark.

Come on, let’s climb. Daylight does always show up.
Ain’t got nothing to do? Focus on you and yield yourself more love.

Then, go and put your shoes on and get your sustenance gear.
Like Gov. Cuomo, I’ll be back – let’s continue to meet here.

WE GOT THIS.

Charlie-Brown_Linus-dance.gif

Let’s jam on one accord. The W.H.O.

If you’re watching the news, I beg of thee to turn it off.
There’s illness in the message; you’ll mess around and get a cough.

Psychosomatics, baby. If you receive it in your mind then it will manifest in your body.
Turn off the news and refocus your views on you and the fam. Hello, Dolly.

Lodi-dodi. Look at you.
It’s been a coons age since you focused on the familial view.

Are you single with no children? Do you live by yourself?
Consider it a blessing; no co-piloting on your health.

Are you all boo’ed up? Do you have kids?
That’s even better – you’ve got pending biz!

No kicking back for you. Are you still wiping the house down?
We can beat this virus. Let’s wear the disinfectant crown.

You can make your own bleach surface wipes, even produce your own lemon scent hand sanitzier.
We are daughters of CJ Walker and son’s of Ben Franklin; invention and evolution remain exciters.

Be encouraged by the world demand and by this writerI am telling you child,
If you have sewing talent your barter-capacity is about to go wild.

I compare the feel of today to about 1000 years ago.
A bit archaic, folks don’t want to say it – but we’re in the dark ages, yo.

Still, we don’t have to get lost in it.
Our species is in trouble; let’s buckle down and defend it.

DON’T GIVE UP, soldier! I need you to hold the line.
Keep the fam inside of the house and all will be fine.

We are not feline cats, our life availability is not 9,
I’m Qui
Hello Dolly, today is a great day to call on Jesus to bind.

Wash your hands, wear gloves and masks if you must go out.
Survival of the fittest is what our species is about.

WHO are YOU?
Ever heard of W.H.O.?

Leadership

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on March 24, 2020 at 9:26 am

leadership

What does leadership have to do with entertainment? The name of this site is Qui Entertainment Magazine, so then why are we always creating content that plays off of, parallels,  and reflects world views? Because multimedia producers are leaders. My line of work is global and requires me to create relative content responsibly. Research and think tanks are my jam.

Leadership is needed on every level. We need it in sports, we need it in combat, we need it in the E.R., we need it in church or else that one sister will sing all of the praise & worship songs during her testimony. Leaders set boundaries that support purpose. Stating that each testimonial is yielded to 3-minutes will keep most folk from going into the second verse on that hymn that describes their sentiment perfectly and will leave enough time in the service for others to express themselves as well. Leadership is needed, or we’d all be singing a different tune; not acknowledging or even hearing the messages of others that may contain life saving wisdom.
  Can I get an Amen?

Leaders are visible, like Governor Cuomo in New York.
Divvying life saving information is a patriot’s sport.

There are so many other leaders, I am sure, who are stepping up to the plate
to prove that they have the capacity to think, discern and contemplate.

It’s called governing and leaders are stepping up.
That’s great because virus cases are revving up.

We got this. Schumer is on the House floor right now talking sums
that equate to employers paying employees to stay home for 4 months.

We can do this. We can hit this head on and come out stronger.
We should act now – not in 12-more days; no need to be a prolonger.

Let’s first lead at home. Lead the family to wash their hands.
Then stay inside of your homes and admire your manicured land.

If your land is un-manicured, you don’t have to worry about being bored.weed-pulling
During your time at home, you and the fam can do team building with chores.

Make necessary work fun again.
Post weed-pulling pics on social media for friends.

Why not?
The weather is fair and not too hot.

Okay, maybe weed-pulling isn’t “a thing,”
especially if you’re in more of a city scene.

Leaders in your hood
are best equipped to tell you what’s good.

As for me and my household, we are full of hope.
Are we going to the mall and eating out as usual? Nope.

We have calibrated our to and fro
follow-the-leader_ducksto give the world time to figure things out, yo.

We are doing our best to be educated heed’ers.
We are doing our best to be in-home leaders.

Leadership should begin at home.
Line the fam up and get in a zone.

Together we can fight this.
Leadership is necessary but doesn’t feel like bliss.

That’s okay. Via united leadership we will all come out strong,
I’m Qui
Good morning to the leader in thee; prepare your fam to survive long.
