Good morning Goodness, how did you sleep?
Was it sound or in the round; was it refreshing and complete?

I sure hope so – I hit REM and stayed there a while.
I went to bed before 11. Ooo child. I laid stoic; I slept wild.

Did you dream, dear love? I did but I don’t remember the details.
I do recall that I was younger than 15, sheltered and wearing pigtails.

dancing unicornIt was sweet enough.
I awoke a woman in search of human touch.

I found it.
Good ol’ human touch keeps me grounded.

When was the last time that you touched somebody?

Good Morning Goodness. Are you ready for the hump?
Smooth is the pavement but rarely is it without a bump.

Put your seatbelt on and cruise this out.
Utilize wisdom today to figure -ish out.

Are you adding things up? I am, and I don’t need a 10-key to do it.

Good Morning Goodness. Skip the early clock-in and let’s screw it.

THINKING ABOUT YOU

Concentrate.

Are you THINKING ABOUT YOU? I am certainly thinking about me.
I promise to God over the last few days I’ve had the most amazing sleep.

The REM kind; it’s a state of deep sleep
where dreams are vivid and yield an intentional reap.

Yes dear sweet, I have.
Then I awake to the vantage view of comics and laugh.

Are you still laughing?gassy_girl
So hard that you cry and are gas passing?

 

I hope not the latter, but just in case,
keep your tuckus firmly planted and out of folks face.

It’s okay. I’m THINKING ABOUT YOU,
and the good in this day that you are due.

Partake of the 24-hour fruit.
Taste it, don’t waste it; chew it through.

It’s good for you and nourishing too.
Stand with positive purpose and push on through.

The weekend is in view and yesterday is the past,
I’m Qui
Thinking about
the future and how to make the good last.

What’s Left

Opportunity over Rabbit hole

What’s left in a world that’s chasing its tail
down a rabbit hole to hell
with an over inflated Wall Street, at the bell
and a healthcare plan that wishes you’d never get well?

I’ll tell you on a dime, exactly What’s Left:
Your GOOD MIND! Now, tend to your health.”

Good morning baby! How’d you sleep last night?
Me? Snug as a bug in a rug; solid and tight.

My dreams were alright, easy going, I’m sure I cooed.
Then I woke up to Life, Wednesday and YOU! All of which is cool.

What’s Left for me today? To hang with you and highlight the good
Since Jon Ossoff won’t be representing that Georgia hood.

And that’s okay, right? The political pool is filled with smoke.
I respect the people’s choice – twas the people who cast the vote.

Let yesterday’s story be wrote and make today memorable still.
What’s Left is opportunity! Go ‘head and cop a feel. 🤗

Making it my own…

I went shopping yesterday and bought a cute little chaise.
I’m in the mood today to rearrange this place.


I’m in the mood today to make a new space
In my life, my heart – renew the smile on my face.

I do meditate.
It’s the best way
to start the day.

What’s Left after you loose your sanity and your cool?
Well, there’s always, a cave and a bib for your drool.😄

But that’s not you! And I’m willing to bet
If you put forth new effort you can increase What’s Left.

Exercise your body, exercise your mind.
You’ll find What’s Left beyond a tighter behind

Is clarity of thought and creativity in flow.
I recommend focusing on YOU – you deserve it, Yo!

So with this beautiful new days begin,
I’m Qui
bidding you encouragement to Win! Win! Win!

Yesterday had its relative depths.
Today: opportunity is absolutely What’s Left.

Take it. Make it your own.
I’ve got your back. You are not alone.

She wanted to know…

In Communication, Griot on July 15, 2015 at 6:53 am

I’m 18. Now what?

“How did you approach life?” and I responded:

It came at me like a flood; the lights were on but I was dim.
18 and legal, a dolphin/baby eagle – it was fight: flight or swim.

LIFE.

I surveyed my surroundings and saw that others were living life just fine.
This thing about “being grown” was nothing more than a state of mind.

Right? You only live once, and there’s no side bar or demo.
How did everyone know what they knew? I thought I’d missed the memo.

I was an honor student, a nerd and I have to admit I hardly tried.
I had planned to entrepreneur and forfeit college – but moms said, “that’s a lie.”

She enrolled me into college, packed my things and dropped me off.
18 was such a new thing to me, the world was huge and I was lost.

Mind you, there was no internet when I graduated from high school
So my nerdtivity is what kept me in the loop and maintained my pro cool —

I hung out at the library.

I learned everything I ever wanted to know and some not so much.
It was shortly after that, I gave intellectualism a hug.

Yep. Good ol’ knowledge did it early on for me.
Who’s not turned on by something so good and it’s free?

I majored in Radio/TV/Broadcasting News
but backed out of that, turned off by selling others views.

I then went to Art school to learn film, theater and to take the stage.
I could feel my “grown” coming on. I was starting to feel that “grown age,”

or so I thought.
But grown wasn’t acquired with the knowledge that I bought

it just rendered me smarter.
Equipped with skills I had something to barter…

Writing school came much later post 3 kids of my own.
They were babies then however today they’re all grown.

My goodness, where has the time gone? Where’s that sidebar demo?
I think during the process of living I may have missed a few memos.

And then it dawned on me, “grown” happened while I was living.
Character was built through compassion and giving.

Dreams are manifested one decision at a time.
I used to rap in high school – today I talk in rhyme.

I’m not at the library anymore, but I do research online.
Life is sweet, the nerd in me can’t help but feed my mind.

It’s free right? lol! And so I continue to spill over and write.
I’m Qui
Humping this day with thee – reflecting on this thang that we call Life.

By divine design, it’s quite alright.

Introducing The ALCHEMIST

In Book, Communication, Networking, News, Science, Self Improvement on July 23, 2012 at 10:26 am

I first learned of the book, “THE ALCHEMIST” by Paulo Coelho a few years back when Will Smith raved about its simplicity on The Tavis Smiley [Talk] Show.

Had you ever heard of the book and/or its author? Well let me tell you a little bit about the author, and then I’ll share the books introduction pages with you to light the fire under your go-getter-bottom, so that you continue to WIN today. No limitations. Now about the author:

I encourage you to get the book and be The ALCHEMIST in your life – if you’re not already doing so. I wouldn’t live life any other way. Having said as much, please enjoy the following INTRODUCTION from the book “The Alchemist”::

remember receiving a letter from the American Publisher Harper Collins that said that: “reading The Alchemist was like getting up at dawn and seeing the sun rise while the rest of the world slept,” I went outside, looked up at the sky, and thought to myself: “So, the book is going to be published in English!” At the time, I was struggling to establish myself as a writer and to follow my path despite all the voices telling me it was impossible.

And little by little, my dream was becoming reality. Ten, a hundred, a thousand, a million copies sold in America. One day, a Brazilian journalist phoned to say that President Clinton had been photographed reading the book. Some time later, when I was in Turkey, I opened the magazine Vanity Fair magazine and there was Julia Roberts declaring that she adored the book. Walking alone down a street in Miami, I heard a girl telling her mother: “You must read The Alchemist!”

The book has been translated into fifty-six languages, has sold more than twenty million copies, and people are beginning to ask: What’s the secret behind such a huge success?

The only honest response is: I don’t know. All I know is that, like Santiago the shepherd boy, we all need to aware of our personal calling. What is a personal calling? It is Gods blessing, it is the path that God chose for you here on Earth. Whenever we do something that fills us with enthusiasm, we are following our legend. However, we don’t all have the courage to confront our own dream.

Why?

There are four obstacles. First: we are told from childhood onward that everything we want to do is impossible. We grow up with this idea and as the years accumulate, so do the layers of prejudice, ear, and guilt. There comes a time when our personal calling is so deeply buried in our soul as to be invisible. But it’s still there.

If we have to courage to disinter dream, we are then faced by the second obstacle: love. We know what we want to do, but are afraid of hurting those around us by abandoning everything in order to pursue our dream. We do not realize that love is just a further impetus, not something that will prevent us going forward. We do not realize that those who genuinely wish us well want us to be happy and are repaired to accompany us on that journey.

Once we have accepted that love is a stimulus, we come up against the third obstacle: fear of the defeats we will meet on the path. We who fight for our dream suffer far more when it doesn’t work out, because we cannot fall back on the old excuse: “Oh, well, I didn’t really want it anyway.” We do want it and know that we have staked everything on it and that the path of the personal calling is no easier than any other path, except that our whole heart is in this journey. Then, we warriors of light must be prepared to have patience in difficult times and to know that the Universes conspiring in our favor, even though we may not understand how.

I ask myself: are defeats necessary?

Well, necessary or not, they happen. When we first begin fighting for our dream, we have no experience and begin make many mistakes. The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.

So, why is it so important to live our personal calling if we are only going to suffer more than other people?

Because, once we have overcome the defeats— and we always do— we are filled by a greater sense of euphoria and confidence. In the silence of our hearts, we know that we are proving ourselves worthy of the miracle of life. Each day, each hour, is part of the good fight. We start to live with enthusiasm and pleasure. Intense, unexpected suffering passes more quickly than suffering that is apparently bearable; the latter goes on for years and, without our noticing, eats away at our soul, until, one day, we are no longer able to free ourselves from the bitterness and it stays with us for the rest of our lives.

Have disinterred our dream, having used the power of love to nurture it and spent many years living with the scars, we suddenly notice that what we always wanted is there, waiting for us, perhaps the very next day. Then comes the fourth obstacle: the fear of realizing the dream for which we fought all our lives.

Oscar Wilde said: “Each man kills the thing he loves.” And it’s true. The mere possibility of getting what we want fills the soul of the ordinary person with guilt. We look around at all those who have failed to get that they want and feel that we do not deserve to get what we want either. WE forgot about all the obstacles we overcame, all the suffering we endured, all the things we had to give up in order to get this far. I have known a lot of people who, when their personal calling was within their grasp, went on to commit a series of stupid mistakes and never reached their goal– when it was only a step away.

This is the most dangerous of the obstacles because it has a kind of saintly aura about it: renouncing joy and conquest. But if you believe yourself worthy of the thing you fought so hard to get, then you become an instrument of God, you help the Soul of the World, and you understand why you are here.

MEDIUM Range

In Communication, Griot, TV Shows on January 10, 2011 at 9:54 am

Do you ever watch that CBS series “MEDIUM” starring Patricia Arquette? Gosh I love it. Fridays episode guest starred David Arquette as Allison’s (Patricia’s character) little brother ‘Michael aka Lucky’. The casting was sooo appropriate and totally DNA believable. What I didn’t know is that in the past David has Directed a few of the MEDIUM episodes. How cool is that? Talk about “the family business”…the ARQUETTES are definitely an “acting lineage”.

Do you believe in: the after life, dreams, visions and the likes?
Are you a digger of the show MEDIUM on Friday nights?

Were you a fan of “Crossing Over with John Edwards” when it was on?
I don’t know what happened to it — perhaps the frequency was wrong.

Not the frequency picked up by digital cable or telvisions analog,
but the frequency of taking on the audience through ‘a gift in the nog‘.

I can only imagine how difficult and how hard such an undertaking would have been…
His audience was not only packed with live visitors but also with their “unseen kin”.

I watched the show at its early begin, and the phenomenon seemed intriguing and fun,
then the show was cancelled & shelved on the mantel – making room for MEDIUM.

Patricia’s following grew fast & their domestic cast took John Edwards under,
and CBS has no regrets because their Friday nights bring in good numbers.

I’m watching – are you watching? What is it that makes this show a success?
I’m Qui
and I think it’s because “researching the unknown”, helps put us all at ease about death.
