About Mondays

alarm-clock-calendar-close-up-908298.jpgEvery morning can classify as a Monday, as in every morning is a new start.
It may read Thursday on the calendar, but it’s new opportunity at its heart.

Good morning Monday. I’m so glad that you’ve come back around.
Last night I slept quite sweetly; last night I slept quite sound.

All last week I was on Spring Break and nowhere really to be found.
I chose to hiatus in a familial space and camped out in DFW’s Ag-Town.

It was good to be on old stomping grounds. Texas is still the place that I call home.
It was good to visit every cousin, nephew, niece and kin that I can’t visit in the ‘Zone.

Spring Break was refreshing, reviving and real.
I couldn’t wait to come home and record the appeal.

I have a narrative series episode to conceptualize.
The producer is from Cow-Town and has his eye on the prize.

I’m game to help him literally birth a narrative view.
I’m into collaborating on new projects. It’s a Monday hue.

I saw a movie last week; t’was a science fiction gem,
it was Legendary Pictures, “Pacific Rim.”

It didn’t just hit the theaters, — I’m just getting around to taking it in.
It was pretty good, and well understood; I’ll have to go back and give the first one a spin.

This is the second Pacific Rim film. The first starred Idris Elba.
Part two starred his scripted son; a futurist who’s quite clever.

The film was adequately entertaining. I give it a big thumbs up –
and then Sunday rolled in with another win at the Mocha Girls Read book club.

I do enjoy this particular outing; it’s a sisterly critical analysis event.
This weeks review was of Claretta Street, by Kenya Barris’ sister, Colette.

The book club members are relentless in sharing their truths.
Each one is heavily honest, though none are named Ruth.

Monday

Opportunity.

For a writer, a discussion group is the true telling of the tale.
I’m new to this particular group, and so far they have not failed

to remind me to come with the facts and to close all story holes.
These ladies are shaping my audience understanding into tried gold.

On honing the complexities — I am sold and today is Monday.
Another opportunity to be fly and take the road of high; a fun day.

I’m girly and up early to be down with it,
I’m Qui
happy to reconnect, compose griot and spit it.

I’m PROUD like…

In Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on February 2, 2017 at 6:39 pm

I’m PROUD like I’m a brand new auntie or something…
Bey said she is prego and since then, I’ve heard nothing —

from the side chicks with short wicks who were looking for a quick fuse
Jay-Z is nourishing a new 2-piece and likely won’t have time for the #GoldDiggerBoo.
Ooo.

To me, that’s good news! I did not want the power CARTERS to break up.
I mean I loved me some LEMONADE but all I needed was one cup.

I was praying the tangy-ness would wake Mr. Jay-Z up.
A billionaire with a lot of flair; it’s not odd to be temped to cut-up.

beys-bambinos-2017You know American history. I am not here to re-sell it.
I’m that GRIOT SHE: Qui.  I’m just here to tell it.

I’m PROUD for the Carters, like I’m Auntie Qui or something.
This is the kind of PERUSE I like in the NEWS
because lately, there’s been nothing.

#MyNiece in Keller, TX is in love and is getting married in a week.
She’s my only niece on this family wing and she asked me to reception Emcee.
Ooo wee.

I’ve got my work cut out for me, though I’ve been around.
Give me the mic, and I’ll give you what you like —
MizQui is known to hold no bars and straight clown.
Yes honey! (Snap-Snap!) I get’s down. 😀

I’m PROUD because it’s an honor to entertain via personality say
among family, friends and non blood-kins on such a blessed betrothing day.

The count down is on and I have my part to play.
I’m PROUD to be kicking it with you. What are you up to today?

Watching any good television? You have!? You might?
Well don’t forget HBO will be broadcasting BILL MAHER tonight.

john-luther-idris-elba.jpgPlanning to stay in and cop an R&R fix?
I recommend a friend, snacks, liq and Netflix.

I recently watched a show with intellectual twists that delightfully cut through ya,
It stars Idris Elba playing the role of [Gov.] Police Captain John LUTHER.

LUTHER” is the name of the show and it was ruthless to its scripts core.
It had more deaths in its establishing episodes than I remember in FOX’s 24.

Woo! Remember that?
When we first met Jack.
Folks were dropping so fast,
I wondered how the show could last.

Good times.

Today is a fine day to feel PROUD about yourself.
It’s Friday – a likely payday, may you #ComeUP on your wealth.

This day is a full one for me as I’m hammering this piece out #OnTheRun,
I’m Qui
I’m PROUD about WE, enjoy yourself today and cop some fun.

Life is short and TIME is refundable to none.

What’chu know about JAMAICA ‘mon?

In Movies, Music, Networking, News, Travel on May 25, 2010 at 8:57 am

Positive JAMAICAN NotesI obviously don’t know enough, and even though recent incites of violence in Kingston, Jamaica is quite concerning and discerning I still have a love for it. So the early morning found me up researching Jamaican artists whose dance hall tones override the ‘violence jones’. I found Ms. Cherine Anderson. Do you know her?
She’s beautiful, she sings, dances, acts and blogs. Carribbean Net News covered a film that she starred in “One Loveopposite Idris Elba [2006 International Film Festival]. The film trailer is hot and Carribean Net News gave it outstanding reviews. Cherine needs not flaunt combat boots or a gun strap in tow to get attention – She’s a NO LIMIT SOLDIER at the core of her soul. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. Get to know her & vibe her positivity.

What about Queen Ifrica? Surely you know her…Right? Oh ‘mon Queen Ifrica’s soulful sounds are comparable to ourIndia Arie, but with a more authentic root. She reps Montego Bay lovely. Peep her hue:


“NO BWOY”
[In depth Translation: You can’t take my virginity away from me]
AWESOME!
Where’s our “domestic comparable” to THAT? 🙂

Somebody’s gotta balance this thang out
(media reflection). Why not me? Marcus Garvey (Jamaican native) came to the US — HARLEM in fact — and brought positivity and unity with him (his asset is historically documented). The least I can do is keep a positive outlook and prayers going out – as Kingston goes through one of the roughest patches it’s faced in a long time.

Sometimes it’s hard to pray for somebody or for people you don’t know. Maybe you didn’t know any Jamaicans as of yesterday, though today I beg to differ. Get to know Cherine and Queen Ifrica – they’re just two positive notes on an island of many…

Stay tuned for more JAMAICAN Insight,
I’m Qui

and it’s my pleasure to “focus on” — in my writes.

NEWS PERUSE

In Griot, Movies, News, Sports on April 25, 2010 at 9:25 pm

As the new week begins I can’t help but Griot spin current media views
that I came up on – by way of various outlets, but mainly CNN News::

Obama’s “compassionate score” will no doubt be much higher
post his recent Eulogy for the late & hardworking VA Miners.

Hundreds protest Arizonas new immigration law – because they care.
Are the Governors safety concerns for the citizens unbias & fair?

Everyone isn’t buying the ‘non-discriminating police ‘ hype.
In fact, Rev. Al Sharpton is jitted up and vowing To FIGHT!

That last media note –
was provided by The New York Post
.

Hell didn’t freeze over and no political party was damned
when President Obama ‘bowed in prayer’ with Billy Graham.

The NFL Draft came to pass and alas has closed its televised rounds.
Peep SI’s documentation of each teams picks and their statistic breakdown.

Living-on-the-run — is what one whistleblower is pledgin’
after linking Critics death to Top Chechens.

Put an egg in the peoples face already! I mean really…what the hell?
Goldman Sachs cites in messages that they thrived when the economy fell.

The last two posted media grinds
duly came from The GLOBAL New York Times.

Let’s talk movies for a minute – so many reel pickers and chosers…
Idris Elba is fine -he bored my behind – I slept real good in “LOSERS“.

This weekends big box office winner – exhibited contents that contained
Something or another (a PG mother) about ‘a Dragon being Trained’?
it was an animated ‘thang.

I could go on and on and on about which headlines made the wired NEWS,
but I’m Qui
and the hour is late in the eve — thus I’m concluding my current PERUSE.
Discard the unrelatable & keep what you can use.
Oooo!
