Today finds me in thought about composition. We start film production this week on my documentary piece about movement. The saying used to be, “If you move your meat – you lose your seat,” but in today’s constant game of musical chairs with personality and ethics everyone seems to be standing around a few chairs, but no one is really moving. Where’s the story here? Is there an ARC and where is it bending?

If a story is without movement or transition there is nothing; in fact, without movement and progress, the end is near. We have all been moving since the day that our bodies were formed in utero (thus all of those Braxton Hicks pains your mom experienced). Movement means life.

The story arc in a tale of movement is something that our union is missing today.

Q: What act will transition us? How do we shape a better convey?
A: Make a bold move or stand to lose your status quo in the global sphere way.

We have got to show some life.
Keep moving through the grooves and resist darkness for the light.

Yeah. Does that sound alright?
We need our arc to bend sharply towards the light.

Let our story be one of great change – seemingly out of nowhere.
Let us move in one motion towards love, compassion, and care.

Are you still there? You do know that you are the protagonist in this piece?
I need you to consider all things, pull-it-together, stand on your feet,

and move.
The resilient arc in our story is framed around you.
You, you, you. So what are you going to do?

Be scared of nothing and stand still for not too long.
A man has to be in motion to remain agile and strong.

So does a vibe.
Don’t let a stagnant game of musical chairs be your life.

Don’t stand in line for a seat that millions will never feel.
Find the arc in your own story and stand bright on the hill.

As much as it sounds like I’m talking to America “the collective” I must indeed admit,
that it takes individuals to keep our energy reserves full. No worries, I believe WE got this.


Stop standing around and start moving in the direction that you want to see this story go,
I’m Qui
and The ARC is you and me in every seed that we intentionally sow.
Water and nourishment must follow if we intend for this story to grow.

Love on your neighbor with more yes’ than no’s.
Life is a give & take, we’ve got to move to yield ebb & flow.


Integrity TODAY

Today I woke up to another awesome documentary. This one was Lance Armstrong: Stop at Nothing and it was dope. I mean literally. Have you seen it?

Showtime pushed the documented legacy on me at 5am this morning. I woke up to drama because I’m a history eating Moma and I just can’t refuse.  I much prefer a documentary over news. I understand a docs view could also be skewed, but with so many news clips – it paints a pretty compelling view. Without further ado, let me share it with you:

UPDATE: THE VIDEO HAS BEEN REMOVED and the holders account was suspended. In fact, the entire existence of the broadcast has suddenly become difficult to obtain via search engines. I guess that little ol’ documentary made a bigger splash than the empire expected it would. Nevertheless, the following link touts access to it. Good news: Showtime is the network broadcasting the documentary, so check your listings and DVR it. I don’t know who produced the piece, but I’m thinking sales have just gone up.

Sure I lived through the debacle and I was duly pulling for Lance.
I pushed aside the haters who said that he didn’t deserve criminal chance

to race in a tour again,
and by the end
he had won seven.

when the legend becomes fact
print the story like that,
and God will straighten out it before heaven.

What is done in the dark will soon come to light,
And since Lance was doping, are those wins still his right?

Integrity Today – can indeed be over run by selfish passion.
I missed Lance’s signs because I was focused on compassion.

I was pushing and pulling for #TeamArmstrong, because his trials were in the light.
I couldn’t believe folks wouldn’t let him breathe when all he wanted to do was ride.

A psychopath couldn’t have done it better, I suppose.
Lance had ol’ Qui by the hook of her nose.

I was a little concerned when he lost Sheryl Crow.
Sheryl is my girl, why would she choose the ‘doe [door]?

I started to slow down my rally and blinded feel
To look more into the man who pushes the wheel.

Was he pushing something more? I decided to embrace my concern.
Integrity is not a show you put on, Integrity is earned.

Once he did the Oprah interview, I really didn’t know what to think.
After 6 answers in a row of YES [to fraud], my anxious tummy did sink.

But still Lance did not admit to all things, he left Betsy Andreu holding the bag.
Why not come clean with the mates of your team? His attempt to bury was sad.

The pain of this story has hurt his mother pretty deep.
His mothers a beautiful woman, supportive and sweet.

His former team members have been burned on the bumb.
Lance’s empire of strength could suddenly yield none.

How do I feel now? Now that the 2014 documentary has had its way?
I’m Qui
A well informed she, concerned about the future of our Integrity Today.
