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,

and I’m crazy about ya!
I’m Qui
and I feel incomplete when I’m without ya!

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.
I’m Qui
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,

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.

NEWS PERUSE

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.

praying.gif

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.
Remember Karma follows you everywhere that you go.

karmasYou know that.
The news is the news but Karma is fact.

Do not test that. It can enlighten or it can darken your view,

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 Wednesday.  Lend us a hump to get out of this hold.

Good Morning Monday

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on July 16, 2018 at 4:45 am

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.

Good morning Monday, I’m so glad that you’re here with me,

I Really Do Care

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on June 22, 2018 at 5:45 am
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.

Gird yourself and your affairs accordingly.

LET’S TALK ABOUT IT

Ann-hathaway_on-the-phone.gif

Let’s talk about the weather, let’s talk about life.
Let’s talk politics – the culprit of recent strifes.

talk_about_it_June-18-2018
Let’s talk about the fam’; How’s your momma ‘nem?
Let’s talk about the state of our country and how we can effectively hem.

Where’s your bright spot, America? Aren’t we looking awfully dim?
Speaking of, let me divvy some specific love to the White House: Trump and ‘nem.

What up big Repub in the Oval Office room!
You have no stance and a slimming chance, yet the stock market still booms.

You’re not king ring-a-ling;  you’re chief of what is.
In the grand scheme, this is an American life-thing
and I question if your base-support is that big.

The global world isn’t loving us;
our allies are pushed-away from hugging us.

Rudy Giuliani is still bugging us
and the tweeting prez doesn’t know how to hush.

Let’s talk about it: Families being torn apart at the border.
We’ve too many resources and not sharing; we’re hoarders.

No laws are in place that deems such vile crap.
This is an administration issue, say both Republicans and Democrats.

It’s not a good look for our country and history will duly show
‘the chump on the hill’ to be a calloused heel —
intent on delivering Democracy a low blow.

Let’s talk about it: Nepotism Laws have been slaughtered.
If not to build a platform for women, what’s up with the 1st daughter?

Isn’t she a senior advisor to the prez?
If anything, what on earth has she said?

She, nor her father is helping.
My role? I’m going to God and I’m telling.

It’s what I’m known for and what I do.😁
I go to God when I can’t get through to you.
It’s true.

Because I am a praying spirit, please know that I am wise.
You don’t have to say much – your truths spill from your eyes.

I am grateful to see it.
The unwise under a guise;
I wouldn’t want to be it.

So, let’s talk about it: Where We Are and What We Mean.
Is Congress for the collected WE or loyalist to a he?

Think about it and then speak. Speak up, speak up, speak up!
There’s too much silence on violence or we just don’t give a WHAT.

If we are a collective and we truly care
pipe-up your voice at the ballot and place it there.

Mid-term elections are at stake and on the way.
Get up and get out – you have something to say

and the world wants to hear it.
Obviously, I’m confrontational; I don’t fear it.

Let compassionate hearts and minds prevail
Or I fear America will feel a backlash of hell.

Nothing is done without consequence.
Building consequence is how this admin is spent.

God help us, we’re a year and a half already in.
It’s increasingly difficult to understand and grin.

If our goal is to be selfish, not help others nor let them in…
We are rapidly gaining clarity to what the Bible calls a sin.

Republican Evangelicals:  the American youth are watching.
Their belief in your self-righteous religion is no longer clocking.

They don’t believe in you anymore. So you can stop.
They realize that you’re working for yourself and not representing God.

Their souls are wise.
They see the racism in your heart through your eyes.

When a person is hungry for help it’s hard to digest lies.
I’m Qui
Up to talk about it, because our biggest commonality is life.

Give it some thought and then let’s talk; be open-minded and spunky.
We’ve got to come together to change this administrations weather…
Let’s talk about our country.

News Peruse

newspaper-ladyI’ve subscribed to two newspapers and several magazines
and I still don’t know what’s going on in the admin of things.

What’s going on in DC? The White house vibe is on blast!
Muellers subpoenas wear boots and his queries kick-ass.

Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is Leo whose on-the-line everyday.
As the presidents Communications Dir. – why aren’t they on the same page?

It’s not fair to her
that she has to explain the thick of the stir.

It’s not fair to Sandra at all;
her position is comparable to a seat in a stall.

She knows it.
Her eyebrows and neck show it.

Sarah is not happy and I intuitively feel her.
I know she can’t until the Press Corp Dinner is a distant blur.

There, as well, she took a roasted beating.
I’m not a SSH fan but she’s clearly a woman
not quick to be-up-for conceding.

Thursday’s news coverage didn’t really give a damn
about Trump and Melania meeting returned-hostages at 2 am.

Coverage was nill.
However, the Stormy Daniels deal is still uphill.

Thanks to Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen can’t get a break.
I’m wondering just how much more pressure the Fixer can take?

Stress is good for no man.
Michael Cohen looks like the fall-guy
I hope he has a plan.

Oh man! Oh man! I wouldn’t want to be in his shoes
and be a part of this periled News Peruse.

Thank God that I’m just writing.
Compared to Cohen’s problems – writing is exciting!

Giuliani! Giuliani! What are you doing?
The golden years are no time for repuation screwing.

I know that you’re wiser – but you’re fronting for a friend.
Birds of a feather flock together and they may burn you in the end.

Don’t you think?
Please be clued-in post reading my ink.

Giuliani you gotta think, man; life is a give and take.
You gave and are giving but not fit for Secretary of State.

It’s okay, but you don’t have to continue to play yourself.
Enjoy your new resignation from the firm and focus on your health.

I know that I would.
Living a long and prosperous life is what’s really good.

You are an elder now.
I admire your life tenur and yearn to know ‘how.’

In wisdom, of course.
Living a long and happy life is the ultimate score.

Do what makes your soul happy is longevity-giving.
Making love instead of chaos & war, can be quite healing.

Let’s do it today. I’m talking about me and you!

presidents day.pngPlease, yo – say it ain’t so.
Is it time for a News Peruse?
I’m inclined to say, “No.”

I don’t miss running down headlines, though they inspire me to script.
Then I wake up this morning to another round of the hill’s fat lip.

Oh, it’s nothing deemed new-news, we’re still swelling off of last weeks hit,
when Mueller passed down 13 indictments on Russians for election meddlin.’

I don’t want to talk about it, really.  :/ I’m poised to wait for the investigations answers.
Nor do I want to talk about Melania’s man cheating or the scowls of Sarah Sanders.

Oh – why, yo?
And on top of that, I think she’s a Leo.
Noo!!!

Have you seen Steven Colbert’s new animated show, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT?
It is actually genius work and a great way to comedy vent.

When was the last time that you laughed? —- Oh! Just now? You did it?
Was the reason for the laughter over something the President twitted?

I see. I see.
‘Woah is me,’

is what I think when I start receiving courtesy cues
that folks in my circle are ISO a News Peruse.

I don’t even want to talk about the Florida shooting…
It’s like watching a hunting humans club and they’re recruiting.

The NRA takes no blame…
ill formed Tweets etch in certain shame.

The leader is so limp, unintelligent and lame
that even our children refuse to say his name.

We lost 15 children to gun violence on Valentines Day.
Giving credence to them saying, ‘Nothing ever goes their way.’

They complain and we brush it off.
17 more lives are lost. How much more is the cost?

In my mirror is a daunting reflection of world views,
in order to keep it real – we must thumb through and News Peruse.

I hear your vibes and it’s true – I love you anyhow.
You always come through with the supportive bOoM-PoW!!
