In The Loop

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Sports on January 7, 2019 at 6:07 am

in-the-loop.pngA new year, the same me, the same you, and a new view.
In the spirit of yesterday’s News Peruse,
we’ll tie headlines together In The Loop.

The COWBOYS played the SEAHAWKS over the weekend and defended their playoff presence.
The EAGLES followed that cab and manifested their own “W” blessin.’

The Cowboys are slated to play the RAMS next;
each in pursuit of a Super Bowl respect.

Are you watching? Are you up on the NFL Loop?
How about the un-looping of lies; i.e, telling the truth?

I wish the White House administration could call my Aunt Ruth.
Like Jacob, she wrestled when honesty was aloof.

She wasn’t about that bull.
If you lied to her – a backhand kept you full.

Mm-mm-ughhhh. It would hurt so bad,
but it’s what was needed to curb a lying lass.

Wake up, look alive and live in the truth.
You can’t trump life’s backhand; keep honesty In The Loop.
Do it for you.

Keep excellence In The Loop; the fabric of your character is always on display.
Regardless of the government’s shutdown, employees should go out and play.

Don’t let your gig ruin your day and expend your vote at every opportunity this year.
2019 is a more awake and progressive scene and wisdom is your fishing spear.

Use it to plant seeds and use it to harvest fruit.
Whatever you do, please remain true and keep me In The Loop.

I’m crazy about you and this fresh Monday start,
I’m Qui
Tying a loop that connects to your News Peruse heart.

Let’s stay connected.
When life happens we’re all affected.

Stay tuned to this groove for the Griot scoop.
It’s objective is to duly keep us In The Loop.

PS — Here’s a little something I thought you might like to know:

DAYBREAK

Sept-Daybreak-2018B

“DAYBREAK” – Image was taken by Qui

Darkness feels as if it waxes cold from pole to pole,
but let it not chill the bones of your beloved soul.

Remember to bundle up; remember to take care and be safe.
Know that joy cometh at the first sign of morning; stay tuned for DAYBREAK.

A Merry Christmas is on the way, can I make you a cocktail or two?
You say it’s too early on a Monday? I say, “Child, what’s wrong with you?

The early morns chill was made for a warm ale or cedar brew.
Top of the morning to ye kin, shall I make you a mimosa or two?

Perhaps a simple cup of jo will do?
DAYBREAK is on the horizon, the choice is ours to pick and choose.

This week is yours to win or lose. I’m ISO a “W” for me.
Let DAYBREAK find me in leisure; to smell the roses is key.

When standing in darkness be mindful to pray and self educate
then expect the universe to soon yield you some level of DAYBREAK.

And when it does remember to be a giver, as you enjoy the upwards take.
Remember night is at its darkest just minutes before DAYBREAK.
Okay?

I’m counting on you to remember.
I’m counting on you to make the best of this December.

Enjoy the weather, enjoy the sounds,
enjoy the ambiance and the people around…

Look again and see everything in a new light,
I’m Qui
Good morning DAYBREAK. Now let us meet her @ living our best lives.

Nevermind what happened yesterday and last night.
Let DAYBREAK be the RESET swipe.
Good morning sweetheart. Enjoy the sunshine.
I’m counting on you to give this day new life.

 

Ooo

Good morning baby. Good morning to ya.’
Are you feeling relaxed? How’d the weekend do ya?

Me? It did me well. I rested up nicely.
My appetite for romance played out quite spicy.

Energized rightly. Being grown is alright.
If the weekend’s dance missed you – give it a go tonight.

Goodness is yours if you have the withall to receive.
Have more faith than the day before; it’s imperative that you believe.

Think William Ernest Henley and feel a little Invictus!
Then walk out of the door tho not a minute before you kneel and pray for us.

You don’t pray? That response is surely past tense.
Who can afford not to pray with our country’s balance in a sway?
That doesn’t make sense.

If you used to pray but have since stopped and your faith has grown slack
I want to say, I understand the past, we need you again; henceforth, welcome back.

Yes-yes. Come in for the hug.
I need your prayers, unity, and love.

Yesterday is gone and today is a great day to start.
Take stock of the true contents of your heart.

You may find that you have a “human condition.”
Something we all suffer from but don’t like to mention.

It just means that we’re all the same tho with unique flaws.
What’s good for the best of us, is indeed good for us all.

Division is not ours. United, we need to stand.
I’m Qui
saying Ooo, I’ve missed you. Sit next to me and hold my hand.

We can change this thing up the-best-time.jpg

 

 

Productive Childs Play

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, Self Improvement on February 12, 2018 at 7:56 am

productive-childs-play.jpgGood morning sweetheart, how have you been?
I was up late script writing, so today I slept in.

I had a banner weekend, no day went undone.
I researched and learned; to concept I gave birth –
It was exhausting but oodles of fun.
Yep. I got it done.

I’ve got that feeling of accomplishment about me right now.
Suddenly questions of when and why are naturally forming with the how.

Wow. I am truly enjoying the season.
Though to talk about me — wasn’t my chief reason

in hitting you up.
I wanted to check-in and I’d love a )))HUG(((.

I’m up sipping jo and the sun is on its way.
Phoenix is boasting a grey overcast today.

I like that too.
It allows me to feel like I’m up early with you.

7:30am is not early but -’tis suitable for today,
because it’s Monday, a natural funday
regardless of my workload, I plan to PLAY.

productive play.jpg

Change it up at work today. Make each task a game.

Youth is about me when I wear my creative hat.
Put on your favorite helmet and get out there and bat!

GAMIFICATION is real. Think of protocol and task as a game.
It could yield a new spin to a routine plan that often feels mundane.

I’m into it! I am. I’ve arisen slowly and am fully charged.
I’m Qui
Checking in with thee, broaching creativity and thanking the good Lord.

 

College Christmas Break

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking on December 18, 2017 at 5:17 am

college-christmas-break.jpgI’m on it and I’m happy.
I pray it drags out and is not snappy.

I bought a new sleep number bed to help me sleep
because when I commit to school – you know I go deep.

I can’t read a book and not follow every foot note
of reference material that the co-author wrote.

You know when it comes to consuming knowledge – I just can’t resist.
I’m hard on research – like the knuckles of a tight fist.

This College Christmas Break will allow me indeed
to take off my glasses and ease up on “the read.”

I’m grateful for the day. I’m grateful for you.
I’m grateful for the season and the giving that we do.

Here it is Monday and we’re only 7-days out from December 25th,
I’m Qui
Just up from my number of sleep. This College Christmas Break biz is the jiz.

It’s a New Day

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on March 27, 2017 at 6:37 am

Yes! Yes! Good morning baby.
I’m that energetic UP EARLY lady.

I awoke at dusky and quiet 4am
when most were asleep and little (visual) mayhem.

Glad, I am, for this New Day,
a new griot spill, wit-willed informative say.

It’s Monday, it’s Monday and I’m back at it again.
I’ll shoot the landscape with my reel sharp friends.

I’ll edit a bit, with my eye-detailed tech crew
and on every free moment, I’ll check in with you.

Me, You, Monday and the crew…

What have you got up for today?
The weekend has come and gone away.

It was fun. Did you go outside and play?
Monday is at the door with an opportunistic score,
Are you ready for another funday?

I’m up for it and I want it all.
Love is in the air and I want to take the fall.

I’ll take it to the back – like the NESTEA Plunge.
Mondays for me are fuel for “GIDDY!” I’m up to reap some!

The first thing I heard this morning inside of my monologue head space
was Pharrell’s voice from The Clipse video: “It’s a New Day!

I rose quickly and found the video to display!
Nothing could be more befitting for Monday.

Indeed, It’s a New Day and I’m so glad to be in it,
I’m Qui
Good morning fam, let me echo “Hot Damn!,” let’s go out and win it!

Blush

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on January 23, 2017 at 5:14 am

blush-champagneIf your face is perfectly pitched and then becomes a bit flushed,
whether for good or bad – we call it a blush.

Today I am blushed and it shows past my red/brown melanin.
There’s a cherry noir rouge at the cheeks of my skin.

This day is still early though my happiness didn’t just begin.
I’ve been #PayingItForward to no end – heck I’m on a philanthropy binge.

.

and I LOVE IT!
If feeling good was tangible thing –
I’d )))HUG((( it.

I’m feeling it right now and passing to you– in a rush!
There’s no time to not let your little light shine or exhibit a little blush.

Do that thing that makes you happy, then do it again and again.
Go out and speak to a stranger – go out and help a dear friend.

Monday is perfect to start all over again.qui-love-jan22-2017
Make it an opportunistic begin.

The thing that makes me blush is seeing others that I lift up #Smile.
It is nothing out my energetic spill to help someone to easier cross a mile.

Ooo wee and good morning. Good Lawd, I shall not hush,
Today is Monday baby and I’m about that proactive blush.

What about you, what have you got up for today and such?
I’m Qui
This day is about WE. Upgrade your character – add some blush.

Take Flight – Elevate

In Communication, Travel on January 3, 2017 at 5:00 am

this-end-upMonday came fast, did its thang’ and went real quick!
It rained all day in Harlem, the streets were slick.

I still went out because rain, sleet or shine
NEW YORK is exciting all of the time.

As sure as Tuesday is birthed more rain has come with it,
But I’ve got a plane to catch – so I won’t be able to kick it.

Though regardless of my location whether ground or in air
I love staying connected & kicking it with you anywhere.

Good morning baby. How did you sleep last night?
I slept quite hard before catching this flight.

The time spent in flight today will be 6.5-hours
Never mind a soon to relax, cocktail or a shower.

It ain’t happening.
Until 9pm I’ll be metal wing flapping.

“Good social action” can happen if your flight is less than two hours long.
Any time over that – too much talking is bound to go wrong.

I enjoy a socialize strong but I’m not much of an airplane talker.
I don’t drink much water either – because I don’t want to be a walker. 😀

So here it is Tuesday, Monday had passed and Wednesday is in route,
I’m Qui
Feeling quite fly with thee. For that’s what this day is all about.

Another Halloween is Upon Us

In Networking, Politics, Self Improvement on October 31, 2016 at 9:33 am

halloweenGather ’round sweet children, I have a tale
about a world in a hand basket going to hell…

Okay – I’m kidding, that’s not our story at all,
lest we choose the wrong President and our progress falls.

But that won’t be our tale , we’re a nation of progressive minds and good intel.
Today’s Halloween events should be sweet and not reminiscent of hell.

No scary clown costumes! Distributors pulled them from their shelves.
Because scary clown gear is basically Trump wear and is scaring folks to hell. 😀

There I go again, bringing up old Republican fables
though it seems the Dems “party-hardy” has had a switch in tables.

In my best SNL-mock Bernie Sanders voice, What’s with the damn emails?
The FBI are back on “the analyze” – and Mrs. Clinton is the targets impale.

batman__batgirlSounds like “more hell,” but we won’t accept it; for today we will just #LOVE.
I’m really trying to change the astigmatism with Another Halloween Upon Us.

Me? I’m going to costume as BAT GIRL, I’m a ‘ride or die chic’ and a fan
of the LUKE CAGE’ish fella who calls me his bella – he’ll be costumed as BATMAN.

I call him LUKE CAGE’ish because he’s black, though he’s working out to obtain “that physique.” 😀
Again, I’m the ‘ride or die chic’ riding sidecar, looking cute and passing out treats.
I’m looking to make the eve really #Sweet.

As soon as I pull my costume together, I’ll add a pic or two for your review,
I’m Qui
On the Move this Monday Morning with no slow mo’ or yawning, we’ve got FUN to get to!
Let’s DO!
after all

Another Halloween is Upon Us.
BoO!

Party divider

UPDATE

halloween-2016-batgirl

I saw not 1 kid… WT?

The hours passed and the moon was not hid,
I, in costume with candy saw not one kid.

I cued up the haunted house tunes but never pressed play
Because the condo I moved into have fewer kids in their sway.

There are consequences to living in nice quiet spaces
My consequence is very few cute  little faces.

Oh well, for a spell I was in my adolescent mind
and purchased 400 pieces of candy – a Costco find.

Yay! They’re all mine…
What about my workout? Maintaining FINE?

Did you make it out, did you find your booty in the streets?
If somehow you fell short and are in the Phoenix port  – break and come see me!

Get EXCITED, already!

In Communication, Griot, Video on September 12, 2016 at 4:37 am

LIFE. It's WORTH IT!

Life is good. Life is fine.
Memories mature and get better like wine.

But then again there are those times
when EXCITEMENT come in and takes over your mind.

During these times one might not contemplate.
I mean, when you know you wanna’ DO IT — WHY would you WAIT?

.

I’d have done the same thing. I just know it.
When I’m excited I can’t refrain the ‘SHOW IT!’

Which is good, because it’s energy, it’s positive and I pray contagious.
To not have an opportunity to express this feeling would be outrageous.

What are you excited about today? Express yourself already!
Dance like no one’s looking, be happy, like Hoppy & Betty:

Today is new and yesterday is gone, o’ sister and brother.
I suggest taking-it to the floor with a musical score
and dancing-it-out like you’re Usher.

Do that Michael Jackson move and then shake your fandangle.
And if you feel a little Zimbabwean spirit – bust out the old Bo’ Jangles.

Heck! I’d do it! In fact, I’m up on my feet and doing a little something-something right now,
I’m Qui
and Good Morning to thee, Get Excited, already – and express the HOW.

Searching for your #Purpose on this Monday?
Perhaps you could benefit from a little SOUL SUNDAY:

GET
EXCITED!
