Another TWO’s Day

Today is Hump Day – “Let there peace!” That’s what I always say.
Peace is when you throw up the deuce aka Another TWO’s Day.

It’s mid-week already and boy do I feel it.
I took yesterday off; lethargy was the boss and I wouldn’t ‘up-hill’ it.

I wrote not – too much. I hung out with my favorite girl, instead.
I talked about my core curriculum – She was on ‘the last blog‘ that she read.

I talked about a media project due at the end of this week.
She talked about dawning a concert venue tonight as I approach sleep.

Our commonalities are sweet! I remember hanging tough like that when I was 23.
She is 3-years junior to that age, indeed. She is the aristocratic jiz and literal mini-me.

And oui!!! Hump Day is at hand and I am up early to create.
I’ve got a Narrative Series pitch that I need to produce – on my plate.

I took off yesterday because I have been going non-stop.
Ideas flood my mind. I know not of writers-block.

Though organizing thoughts can sometimes be a blessing in desguise.
I jot down a concept then re-write it mid-step because another idea’s on the rise.

Sometimes the creativity is so strong, it becomes difficult to lie down and close my eyes.
Though that was before I was pulling a full class load; seeking time to nap now, is always nigh.

Self-Preservation, people. Take serious your sleep and your play.
There you go!  Two more cool points on this Another TWO’s Day.

Good morning kinfolk. Let us stretch, workout, shower and get to it,
I’m Qui
All about good sleep, peace and the space to create. Ha! I can’t wait to do it!

PEACE and the DEUCE

In Communication, fitness, Networking, Self Improvement on January 17, 2018 at 10:47 am

peaceI’m currently feeling both: PEACE and the DEUCE. While driving away from my 7:15a.m. yoga class at the Tao Healing Center, at approximately 8:45a.m., I threw up the DEUCE as the view of the building became smaller in my rear view mirror. I was completely submerged in PEACE. I harnessed it in class. The class promptly started at 7:15 but I was about 10 minutes late. Tsk-Tsk and shame on me, right? Well, actually, I was bringing with me a guest and she was a bit delayed so, I kind-of made up for it. Kind-of. 🙂

We stretched, tapped & patted our bodies into an awakened state, our blood pumped more fluidly and circulated with more ease… we breathed in a space encompassed with the sounds of dole drums and hums. It was magical. I prayed, gave thanks (internally) and meditated in the space. I felt the energy of the man meditating in front of me. It was beautiful. I don’t know his name, but gosh I enjoyed his energy. He didn’t speak a word, he was a mere participant in class, but his energy? I enjoyed it so much, that I had to comment to him at the end of class. He received my appreciation. Namaste.

the-deuceThe instructor’s name of this morning’s class was Bretta; she’s also known as PEACE, (her spiritual name). I didn’t learn this information until the close of class. I should have known! That’s the exact feeling that washed over us during the 1.25-hours that we were in class with her.

This is how I began my day and pray that you began yours with PEACE, also. However, if a vibe of negativity is working on your nerves right now – I beseech thee, upon reading this to give it the DEUCE.

If you find an excess of politics divvying out energetic strife —
You could probably use a little bit of Tao Yoga in your life.

I know I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again:
meditation and prayer have got to be your best friends.

How could they not?
Hell is still too hot. 😉

You know what I’m saying? You get the point – I’m sure.
You, acknowledging your body may be part of the cure

to keeping ill vibes from infecting your spirit and soul.
Kinfolk, today’s Tao Yoga class was worth my weight in gold.

Wooo! It’s a great way to start a day, even though I was a few minutes late!
I’m Qui
and being late has never stopped me from piling good vibes onto my plate.

Though — it won’t happen again Tao Guide, Peace.  I bid tardiness the DEUCE!

Water Cooler Chat

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on October 24, 2016 at 4:35 am


Water Cooler ChatWater Cooler Chat…

it’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

It’s good, it’s relevant and all of it isn’t about “the news,”
It isn’t post November 8th yet —  and this is not a NEWS PERUSE. 🙂

Good morning baby. I stay up, awake and aware
so let’s talk about Love and War – where all is fair.

LIFE. That’s a good place to start.
What’s been going on with the GOOD of your heart?

Have you been good to yourself? Here lies the true measure of a self lover:
we know we have to be good to us FIRST before we can be of any use to others.

But you knew that. Right? Because we hang out all of the time.
Are you still on your AFFIRMATIONS, starting your day with a shine

of encouragement and meditation? It’s our support as the day grinds on.
Life ain’t no crystal stair, still we hold our own.

LOVE.
I love being grown. Love is what I’m into.
I confess I love me some me and I love me some YOU.
Ooo!

What on earth are we going to do if everyone starts feeling like me?
‘Mess around and Earth will become a place of tolerance and unity.

Ooo Wee. Kiss me. Let me infect your mood.
Then you pay-it-forward and kiss that dude in brood.

Not “physically kiss” him – but by all means do something nice.
Life can be a boring Mrs. if we don’t yield the proper spice.

Yeah. I’m a pay-it-forward lady, I go to Starbucks just to see how much it will cost me
to stand in line behind ahead of a party of 9 and pick up the tab for their coffee.

It is  a little scary but so far I’ve been blessed.
No one has overly taken advantage of the “pay-it-forward” test.

People are kind and for the most part we mean well,
but when we’re PO’d — all of that “wellness”  goes to hell.

WAR. It ain’t pretty.
And the once smooth pavement is now tarnished and gritty.

Disagreements… they happen and they are natural, in fact.
Though it’s how you handle them that will separate you from the pack

of

fullsizerender-8🙂 🙂 🙂

Disagreements can cause the bear to come out in even the cutest cub
and make it difficult for you to remember ‘to love’ or render a necessary hug.

I get it. I hate disagreements but them I’m not always coy
when it comes to voicing my opinion or making a point.
Oy!

Anywho relationships are at stake
when we handle WAR the wrong way.

Being on ‘the outs’ only means that somewhere there is an ‘IN,’
so when you’re on ‘the out’s’ – stop and look for the new begin.

Don’t spend any unnecessary time arguing with the people that you love.
Life is unpredictable and fragile — ALWAYS opt for the hug.

Give no time at all to arguing with folks you don’t know,
that’s when your weakness and powerlessness shows.

If you’re in control then don’t throw bows but DO always walk away.
If you are out of control – walk away quickly with a runners sway. 😉

WAR is rarely an option. Life is about prevailing with cooler heads.
You’re neighbor is more than that, but your beloved who shares your bed.

We breathe the same air and drink the same water as well.
If you harm your neighbor — all will go to hell.

Whether he be next door or half way around the world…
Suck up and the be the bigger person – forfeit being “the little girl.”

Make PEACE 
and let beauty from chaos be released.
