Productive Childs Play

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.

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-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.

Party divider



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 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:

rebootDid you reboot over the weekend? Alas, it’s time to RESTART.
Open this day up with open arms, open mind and an open heart.

Learn something new – because your brain demands it. You are smart.
When foolishness approaches your presence, chart your conversation: a thwart.

Monday is a great day to RESTART, so is Tuesday through Sunday as well.
Sometimes I use the weekends to unwind and just shut down for a spell.

Though last weekend found me prancing about the city
because it was Mothers Day weekend and I was feeling pretty.

My college freshman paid for half of my weekend meals
then my guy picked up the remainder complete with gifts & frills.

I received so much love and boxes from Amazon that
I’m pretty charged up to shop for that June DAY OF DADS!
My family spoiled me so bad. ❤

The weekend was meaningful but Monday, you absolutely  own my heart
I’m Qui
and to the universe, I say, “Oui! I’m absolutely ready for a weeks NEW START.”

How was your weeks end?
Join me at the begin of another WIN!!


Good Morning Monday

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on May 2, 2016 at 7:27 am


☀️Good morning Monday. How well did you sleep?
It must have been GREAT! You slept a whole week.

☀️Good morning Monday what have you got up for me?
Besides being kind to others and loving unbiasedly?

Be good to yourself, this day belongs to you.
Open mind, open heart bid el solitary adieu.

The weekend has left you and you are now in mode: grind.
It’s a good look – you are no crook, you have a lawful behind.

You are the captain and today is your ship.
Pull a Dirk on this Monday and shoot from the hip.
Pay no mind to the naysayers lip.

Good living is key and Qui is my name
To not LIVE IT UP would be a “namesake” shame.

And ain’t nothing lame about an opportunistic day,
I’m Qui
Taking full advantage – I plan to win this Monday.

Oui! Oui! 
It’s truly a 7-day thing for me. 😌

An even HAPPIER Friday!

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on April 1, 2016 at 10:25 am

q2-25th-bday-qui-44Monday was great and Tuesday was even better.
Knowledge comprehended; game sharper – tongue wetter.

Hump Day came along and brought goodness on its back.
Smiles softened the miles covered… in the sand, I saw 2 sets of tracks.

Thursday came in briefly and quickly spent the hours of 24,
then I wake up to a beautiful weekends start. My Fridays, I do adore.

“Encore!” I honestly say that — every 7 days,
I’m Qui
Happier again and poised to win on this another awesome Friday.

What have you got up for the weekend?
Take time out to DO YOU#SelfPreserve spend.
