Unity in the Global Community.

Good morning good people and how do you do?
I’m up early to compose an index; call me “Collaborative Who.”

Inquisition is all over me and chronicling is simply what I do.
My name is Qui (pronounced Key). Please tell me, WHO are you?

How are you doing today and are you focused on a goal?
Were you born to live and die or is there purpose to your soul?

For all who have awakened to the darkness of complexion disrespect
who are wondering WHAT CAN WE DO? Rt Pt Arrow This is your next.

WHY should you get involved in crafting a better world?
Because life is full of surprises; we must learn to hone this girl.

Life begets life and yields familiar lows & highs, though only a blinded fool
would believe that disrespecting others is okay, but for himself – ‘tis against the rules.

Poo always rolls downhill and protecting yourself from it – has never been fun.
As a minority in America, it brings me no joy that all races are ‘getting some.’

Respect begets respect. Please respect me, because I love to respect you.
Streaming unity into our global community yields new respect for YOUTUBE.

I graduated last month and to my surprise the celebratory events have been plenty —
YouTube, Beyonce, the Obama’s threw us a LIVE STREAM titled: Dear Class of 2020.

Most societies are in class right now as global protesting rocks the world,
Who me? I’m just SEWING UP SOME LOVE over here; I’m a hippy offspring girl.

I’m all about love; let it shine, let it shine.
And when the outpour of love is huge it produces long LINES.

And that’s fine; when you’re passionate about a thing you don’t let up – but you stay on it.
I think your actions are admirable; you’re focused on LOOKING BEYOND THE MOMENT.

We’re in sync. I, too am looking; I am focused and chronicling on-cue,

NEWS PERUSE

In Communication, education, Griot, News, Self Improvement on January 9, 2020 at 7:32 am

Good-News Lady w Garter Belt

Good morning good people. How are you today?
The news has a few views that I’d like to play.

Let’s take a walk across ye ol’ pond today
and witness Harry and Meghan carve out a new space.

What’s that you say? You have not heard?
Well, Diana’s baby boy has sent formal word

that he and his bride mean no disrespect
but intend to recoil as senior royals – for a life of more let.

Let means “to allow.” Also, the couple has an adorable son.
Prince Harry must be reminiscent; for his son he wishes more fun.

Therefore, he and our Meghan are planning to do a newer thing:
get dual residences on both sides of the pond. Quite fly and exciting!

I wish them well. Meghan Markel is born of our beloved country.
She and Prince Harry are indeed a new groove. New grooves can feel funky.

And that’s okay. Right? Change can bump and bruise.
I think the young royals are onto something. It’s time to stick-and-move.

What’s that you say? Where on Earth have I been?
In the checkout line reading tabloids, o’ friend. 😛

What about you?
I’ve also got a couple of PSA’s that I need to shoot.

One conveys auto safety and being compliant on the road.
I love that you keep your car shiny-clean but let’s conquer a higher goal:

clearer skies tomorrow.
Smoke plumes from a tailpipe equal sorrow.

Dont-smoke-out_car-emissions.gif

We can’t have soot-like emissions continually going up into the air.
QUI FILMS is supporting this PSA because we’re drivers of dimensional care.

Drivers of good and common sense – please endeavor to remain fresh.
Let us all be mindful of the road and the danger of bad breath.

Wait. Do what?
Yes. Bad breath made the PSA cut.

The second PSA that I am working on
is about the hazards of breath-too-strong.

Let me slow down and point-out the calcified fact
that heart disease thrives via the build-up of plaque.

bad-breath-horse.gifPlaque on your teeth need not cause you to hush.
Be friendly & chatty with others  after you brush. 🙂

It’s a good ambience and your friends will cease to frown
when you and your long conversation comes around.

I know that most of us have conversation on a variety of hues.
I wouldn’t be surprise if you dropped a line about this NEW PERUSE.
It’s okay if you do.

All publicity isn’t good publicity, but you are a good soul.
I would think if you talk about me, it’s as good as gold –
and that’s goal.

Am I right?
May goodness be yours by the day and by night.

Me? I’m up early reading and couldn’t refuse the write.
A NEWS PERUSE is a connective tool to world-view insight.

And while I’m taking it easy – by crossing the pond and talking film shop,
life is really good-to-go, good kinfolk — but world news isn’t so hot.

We, the people are the news. What we do composes the worlds view,
I’m Qui
Always involved in a new days evolve, positive news, encouragement, and you.

PS — If you’re wondering why I didn’t mention IRAN?
I prefer to leave the fish in the frying pan.
You don’t need my views on that particular stance.
Let’s make LOVE the news; let’s start a new band.
Remember WE ARE THE WORLD? Let’s sing and hold hands.

TUESDAY is a MOVES-DAY

Mike tyson-bust a move.gif

Hit it!

Ah! Where to begin? There is so much to go through —
the day is early and I’ve much to tend to.

I’ve got a script to create, at least the bones of it.
The concept is strong; I nailed the film’s pitch.

It’s an all-encompassing piece – you know I have an itch,
for pulling us all-together and securing our stitch.

So this project is easily classified as a feel-good piece.
It’s dramatic and suspenseful during its short-timed release.

When it comes to scripting new roads – I’m a no limit beast.
The film topic is a well-thought fit, about the commonalities of WE.

nice teeth coexist.pngYou, me, he and she
and them and him; we’re America’s teeth

and we don’t have TMJDwe don’t self-grind.
In the trenches of diversity, we find commonality and we bind.

Am I right?
Well yeah… that’s the way I composed my scripted write.

Another cool thing that I’ve done while in compose
is to script-collaborate with another peer for a longer reel-roll.

In working with another student I can add time on the run of our scripted truths.
So, instead of the short being a total of 5 minutes, we can have 10 via Part 1 & Part 2.

You see what I’m doing here?
Enjoying school; applying gamification over fear.

Why not? I prefer to play all of the time.
I’m doing it right now via this griot rhyme.

Ha-ha! Rise and shine. I’m on one today,
I’m Qui
Glad to start things up with thee on this opportunistic Tuesday.

Go forth with purpose – commit to working the groove.
Make a plan, follow-through, go strong in doing you – conquer the task and bust a move!

PS – We haven’t had a NEWS PERUSE in a while
and while today isn’t the day for it I want to talk about SIMONE BILE.
Ooo child!
She is one outstanding and dynamic gymnastic warrior princess.
Her physical capacity is tops, though her inner-woman view is best!
She’s graceful
on the balance beam as well as getting things off of her chest.

Neal Degrasse Tyson: not a feeling expert.

What is this feeling that I’m feeling?
Butterflies from within… feels quite healing.

I’m happy, y’all.
My feet hit this ground this morning with no stall.
I’m not kiddingI’m happy yall.

So, what’s on your agenda and what are ya’ doin?
Are you subject to a come-up today or a screwin?’

Oh, come now, you can tell me.
Keeping it real has always been key.

I hope that being “subjected to a screwin,’ isn’t pending in your bag.
Stand atop of this hump and be strong with no sag

and tell the universe that your tools are skill specific.
When work shows up at your door never hesitate to get with it.

You got that?
You’re the captain; wear the hat.

You know that slacking is out of fashion.
The world wants to see you in your passion.

Show ’em.
Whip-it-up, dazzle and glow ’em.

Today is a day of opportunity and promise;
a good day to gather with friends, pita bread, and hummus.

You in?
Let’s script-read the eve away with red wine, rum. and gin.
You in?

Today will prove to be good for us all.
My feet hit the ground this morning with no stall.
I’m truly good y’all.

I’m droppin’ in to leave this note for you
because even tho — I’m not NEWS PERUSING, yo
I’m very much into you.

I am.
News or not, you’re the green eggs to my ham,

Gimme Some

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on April 19, 2019 at 5:00 am

Give me some, because this -ish is all the way live.
I’ll take the full report and Five on the Black Hand Side:


.
Are you down to ride? Yesterday’s CD ROM was hot.
Mueller’s report is a bulky sport and it don’t stop.

Sounds like lyrics made for Hip Hop. Feels like we’re experiencing a growth spurt;
though after the report was made public it’s likely the CIC’s stomach hurt.

The heat is up and is duly on the back of some folks neck.
The Mueller report is alive; the administration is wrecked.

There were a bunch of Oh’s pointing to an X; lets just call the x variable Defendant One.
Gimme Some when the gander is done – I’m off to have a weekend of yum!

Bummed is what the news out of Washington, DC had been of late;
things started to shake last night and tomorrow is 420 Day.
Hip-hip hooray!

Exhale long.
Let your hair down; let nothing be wrong.

Drop the stress as common unity increases.
Tell your stressed out comrade to not to fall to pieces:

.

Today feels like it’s going to produce words that should be composed into a song.
Kinfolk, I’m just happy and pray that we can all prosper and get along.

I prayed that for yesterday, today and I’ve already prayed it for tomorrow.
I really hope the light is truly in view and behind us is the bulk of sorrow.

New Peruse? “Whatchu’ talkin’ about  Willis?” I ain’t been in the mood.
It’s hard on a Griot to keep singing the blues about a variable fool.

Lord help us all. Let us approach this day expecting a little fun.

Dropping by to love on thee and to reciprocation I say, “Gimme Some.

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.

back-hand.gif

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,

News-Peruse-Psst

Good morning good people and how do you do?
Let’s talk about the stock market for a minute or two.

The market is so volatile. One minute it’s up and the next minute it’s down.
I do believe this predictable breeze indicates instability -much like the pound.

Yes, there’s enough concern to go around. This peruse is about world news.
Good morning love – what are your thoughts on Mueller’s memo hue?

Michael Flynn has had 19 sessions with the SPO.Robert Mueller.jpg
Mueller concluded ‘No jail time, yo!’ 🤪

I suppose by sitting with the SPO and not lying
means prison will not see Flynn dying.

That’s good news in his camp and a lesson to us all,
that if your foundation is full of lies – you will indeed fall.

This is a good time to ask if you’re still praying.
What’s that? You’re not? Child, I know you’re playing.

You can’t afford to not pray
if you intend to win the day.

Come on, now!
I know you know how.

Speaking of, please send a prayer up for 41‘s survivors and kids.
He had a date upstairs with a beloved little Miss.

His daughter Robin preceded both he and Barbara to the gates.
George HW Bush arrived at age 94, and somehow he still wasn’t late.

I wish a long ‘bye-bye’ to be every good man’s fate.
President GHW Bush:  For your service, I appreciate.

President 41 is beloved in the south.
Cowboys-vs-Saints.jpgMuch like DEM BOYS! Keep their name in your mouth!

God bless the Saints – the way that they came a-marchin’ in.
God bless the Cowboys Defense who put the Saints Offense to an end.

The Cowboys pulled another win.
Thank God. Amen and amen.🙏🏾

What more can I say? I miss checking in with you on worldviews.
It’s the last month of the year, perfect time for a NEWS PERUSE.

Wouldn’t you say?
Now get on out there and win the day!

Get on out there and be kind to both friend and foe.

Good morning to thee. This is not tea but a 2018 NEWS PERUSE.

Sinking Long Before Helsinki

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on July 18, 2018 at 7:34 am

sinking_quicksand.gifYes, the ground has been unstable since the presidential race started;
unclear if Donald’s totality of morale and honesty had long departed.

Access Hollywood blamed Billy Bush for being socially pushy
in defending himself that he had nothing to do with Don’s quote,
Grab ’em by the pussy.”

Donald went on to become the Republican’s nominee.
They chose him as if it wouldn’t cost this country a huge fee.

The move is threatening to our democracy. It could… but it shouldn’t.
Don confirms his belief in Russia with the double-negative “don’t and wouldn’t.”

A strong man stands on his word
and is clear to be heard.

Therefore, Putin spoke his piece with clarity and no misunderstanding.
Don stood there like all in the world was lovely and fair;
the phrase “fire him now!” is increased; public demanding.

We’re restrained and sinking in quicksand.
Does not the branches of government independently stand?
I pray they get it together today because we could use a helping hand.

YES, WE CAN!

President 44 spoke on the state of our union yesterday morn.
Remarking that our way of politics is looking tattered and torn.

He‘s honest and he’s on it. Integrity? It’s a trait that he beholds.
I appreciate the sentiments but I’d like more for him to get us out of this hole.

“Ugh.” Is what my daughter always says, when something is waxing old,

Good Morning Monday

horse-bucks-rider.gifGood Morning Monday. All weekend long MSNBC rode a reliable pony
of facts that tack the Trump Campaign to colluding with Russian cronies.

Yep. It felt like a bad dream that kept being re-told.
Tho, the importance of rebroadcasting was to save America’s soul.

She’s killing herself with a 45 because she selectively isn’t woke.
Her skirt is up, others can see her butt,
and her coffers are going for broke.

Yes-yes! A well-cultured democracy is certainly best,
but will Helsinki find our rep with his cards too far from his vest?

International eyes remain on the West
as we hoard-up our borders and mistreat refugee guests.

Our allies are worried –tho not as much as Americans should be.
My God, what in the world is happening to our democratic legacy?

Good morning Monday, did you hear me? Your democracy is at risk.
This is not a time to wrist-flick wrine and remark “Tsk-tsk-tsk.”

You are not Fish Mooney and this isn’t Gotham City,
still what’s happening to us at this hour is a remarkable pity.

Dancing-P-DiddyWhere is P-Diddy to Harlem-shake this off? Oh, he’s calling himself Love?
Well, where is Love, the productive Harlem thug?
This country needs a song to incite a wake-up hug.

Okay, truth be told, I’m just looking for a new jam.
Every day for the last year and a half I wake up to Morning Joe saying, “Damn!

morning-joe_lone anchor.gifClearly, I am paraphrasing
but every report seems to suggest that the admin is crazy.

Hm. Are you nodding off on me, Monday? There is no time to sleep.
That’s why MSNBC spent the entire weekend rebroadcasting from last week.

I get it and it still resembles a nightmare.
Good morning Monday, I’ve got caffeine to spare.

We have got to VOTE, people! Before it’s ever-loving too late.
Vote your interest and less for collages on Pinterest;
In our hands rests our fate.

Let’s not allow sleeping heads in Congress to sell our democracy away.
Rise up and become awake right now and remain woke every day.

I Really Do Care

I care.jpg

Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) responded to first lady Melania Trump’s Thursday

About life, about love, about unity, and equality of compare —
things that mean a lot to me; things of which I Really Do Care.

I don’t know what made FLOTUS T. show up in Texas to yield comforting action
only to be seen later, at a couple of airports wearing unflattering fashion.

I Really Do Care that the world has to see us make such moves.
It’s emboldening the know that ‘America has lost her groove.’

Where’s Stella to give us some points?
We need some WD-40 lube for Lady Liberty’s joints.

She’s terribly stiff.
She stinks like this jacket – take a whiff:
Melania_Trumps_jacket_June21-2018.jpg

I mean, who wants to go-in on the first lady? Certainly, I don’t wanna.
Though I do remember during 44’s term, folks did go-in on Michelle Obama.

Michelle kept cutting edge women’s fashion nigh,
and when folks went low – FLOTUS O. went high.

I remember. Don’t you?
It’s who you wanted your kids to model and what you wanted them to do.

Yes. How well do I remember…
and then it got dark in 2016, November.

So where’s Stella, where’s our groove and how do we get out of this square?
I’m only asking because I hope our current vibe is just a masking and because I Really Do Care.

Hello! Can anyone hear me out there? I promise this is not a mundane racket!
And it’s too hot outside for me to be putting messages on a military jacket.

I know that there are protests planned all across the USA
to halt the Trump Policy of breaking-up families that’s currently in play.

Are you following the inhumane drama? Too bad it’s not scripted fiction.
And to the folks who are co-hoarding these kids; please revisit your fostering mission.

Please don’t give your consent and be a party to
breaking up families for a subsidy check or two.

This is the way that America broke up my familial ancestors of yesterday.
When I was 13, I learned that I had uncles that were stolen and sold as slaves.

This was told to me by my (then) beloved 90-year old Aunt Jake.
Therefore, I have no love for what I see the government doing today.

If you see someone struggling in strife and you have the opportunity to be there,
do something kind to help them out of the bind; do it because You Really Do Care.

Many of the children taken from their parents during this painful time of immigration nightmare
have been shipped off, without a proper record-log. WTF? I ask because I Really Do Care.

What now? The reconnection of so many looks so bleak.
Today they are in tents cities – tomorrow they’re in our streets.

Who’ll foot their life sustenance bill?
I do believe that our tax dollars will.

Who’ll complain that the system is working in the immigrant’s favor?
Republicans already have a message cued-up, resonating such savor.

What the administration is doing to our American principles isn’t fair.
There’s no pleasure in bringing this up, but I do so because I Really Do Care.

What will history say about our divisive stunt tomorrow?
I’m Qui
Praying for every family that’s torn apart. Please give God your sorrows.

Just like King Nebuchadnezzar retired to eating grass,
I do believe God will make his voice known and fast.
