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.



Wide Open Wednesday

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on January 10, 2018 at 5:06 am


What’s on your mind today? Is it good or is it naught?
You can share it with me. A penny for your thoughts.

What’s on my mind at present, is the good that this day does hold.
I’m already grateful at lifes table – anything beyond my breath is solid gold.

Behold, my mind and my heart are wide open to lots of love and play,
I’m Qui
Consider getting with me; experience a Wide Open Wednesday.

Picking with the P

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on October 31, 2017 at 4:38 am

At The Pumpkin Patch with my little Pea.

Happy Halloween to ya! Ye ol’ curve is rising; today is deemed the day of pre-hump.
Nothing is scarier or hairier than having worked on the campaign of Trump.

Mondays indictment dump put a slump in a few of the former campaign kin.
I don’t know the score, but God bless Paul Manafort – with him the arrests have began.

Then BOO! It’s Halloween, folks are dressing up, (some in costume & such) and heading off to work.
The world continues to turn while the futures of former campaign-heads burn with an uncertain flirt.

Such intense scrutiny on ones life has got to spirit-hurt. So I shan’t dance on their bad.
I actually feel for Manafort,  Papadopoulos and Gates.  Human compassion. No laugh.

We’re all human. We all make mistakes.
Sometimes, in life, we over stack our plates.

And then we get a tummy ache; some may even feel like you have to poo.
That’s usually once you’ve been served and you know the po-po is coming for you.

‘Tis TRUE.


Pick and choose your battles and may your burdens be light.
Think about what you’re doing and how it will affect your life.

Who deserves what? And who are we to judge?
What would you say if I said the purported 3 could use a hug?

Pardon? Do what?
You don’t feel like participating in a hug?

Understood. jack-o-latern-pumpkin.jpg

Therefore, I won’t go so far as to send the aforementioned any flowers,
but I will lend compassionate vibes as I’m sure others are sending sour.

Today I am glad we are cautiously approaching the hump.
Today I am glad my name wasn’t in the indictment dump.

Today I am glad that we have a calendar day
where we can dress up and do a little fantasy play.

Ahem. Well, I do it often – it’s just what I do.
I’m sure you’ve seen me change my hair color a time or two.

I’ll never forget (a decade ago) I was dressed, out and about in February thinking I was looking cool,
When I overheard a couple of kids say, “I wonder who she’s dressed as,” – while I was visiting my kids school.


Pick a P…

Now, I was not a part of an assembly nor were the kids putting-on a shady front.
My top hat and heels just reminded the kids of a profile within Black History month.

So help me God, they truly and honestly thought
that my daily gear was stage-worthy and costume bought. jack-o-latern-pumpkin.jpg

So, I suppose I could dress up today as a Black History icon.
I can be me – from yesterday. Oui! Yesterday was pleasant and fun.

However, interest in reliving yesterday – I have none. I’ll dress as a sexy vixen.
I’ll be a domestic house bunny, with greens, cornbread and other nutritious fixens.

It’s an easy outfit to conquer. What do you think?
Of course, I’ll also have candy and Proseco to drink.

Today is a day of pretend. I am totally down – in complete fashion!
I’m Qui
I’ll be portraying a fantasy of partying at the Playboy Mansion.

I’m thinking about it…


Don’t skimp on the Ponder.


Pray, Eat, Play – Sunday

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on October 8, 2017 at 10:00 am


After six days of hump we rest on the seventh.
We pay homage to God; we focus on heaven.

Some do it at the church house some do it via streaming feed.
There are so many venues sewing the divine seed

On Sunday.
If you’re an NFL fan – it’s a bonus fun day.

I’ve got that die-hard blue and silver bleed.
The Dallas Cowboys are my NFL lead.

Rest is tops on my agenda so I won’t get too riled up.
I’ve got a nourishing dinner to cook; a kitchen to smell-up.

I’ll sip proseco as I go to and fro the stove.
I’m cooking pan seared trout, green beans and carrots – no rolls.

I don’t want my dinner guest to leave “on swoll,” — so we’re eating clean.
It’s okay to fish fry and do collard green – but we’re going lean.

Are you in?
My pan seared trout will make you grin.
Make you call grandmama and ask her if we’re kin. 😂

Let’s just kick back and chill in our team jerseys and sip our cups of juice.
Let us celebrate life today and with self, make a new truce

To take advantage of rest at every meet of day seven
To also pray and meditate as to not to miss heaven.

Even if “heaven is a a place on earth, “
Use day 7 to retreat from “the girth.”

Don’t look lost. You know your girth.
I’m Qui
Enjoying the Sabbath with thee making new memories – for all that it’s worth.


In the meantime

I’m sipping chai tea, being me and getting a lot of rest.
I’m doing a lot of shopping and network hopping; kicking-it with the best.

Aw yes! I’m having a blast
Feet kicked up, I’m resting on my…

ASK me not one thing that you don’t want the honest answer to.
I pull no punches. I do what I do.
I see WHAT’S UP in the world then Griot kick-it to you.

That’s all.
However big or small

my designated part –
I execute it to the hilt; I spill it with heart.

So when I am at rest, I rest with my all.
Did someone say PLAY? I’ve no reason to stall.

Work was yesterday and today the sun is on shine.
I think I’ll rest up to PLAY in this breezy meantime.

How has your week been? Were you good to YOU?
It’s Friday baby, be a little lazy, kick back and sip a few.

I reckon the meantime is the weekend and herein I’m going to have a blast.
I’m with my girls and we’re traveling the world; about to show our…

ASK me not one question that you do not want an honest answer to.

A Leisure-ful SHE,  encouraging you to break from routine and DO YOU!

Work is next week, so
In the meantime…


Feels like a Friday

Good morning. Good morning. I sure rested well.
I’m up sipping jo and feeling quite swell.

I slept like a baby – as hard as a rock.
I awoke with no cover, no shirt and one sock.
I am fond of “giving in” to ye ol slumber knock.
I am fond of preservation. Because preservation rocks!

So today is Thursday – pre Friday if you will.
I’m hype like a teen – because life is a thrill.

I’m ready to tackle the day and do so with you.
I’m up for whatever. What are you getting into?

It Feels like a Friday and I want to play.
Lunch is on me – I don’t mind the pay.

Good times are at hand and happy hour is bound…
I’m feeling quite giving – I’ll buy the first round.

It’s Feels like a Friday and I’m duly all in,
I’m Qui
Saying Oui Ouilet’s take advantage and WIN!

Happy Thursday.


Unbelievable Week Start

Wow! Sunday brought sensuality my way.
It wasn’t the physical but an intellectual play.

Not so much of…a lay…but I was massaged.
HIGH with creativity with no schtick involved.

hodge podge – I socialized with the likes
of film minded folk. It was quite the delight.

I had no sleep the previous night. Knowledge is a turn on.
I will glue-my-eyes-open to GET MY LEARN ON.

Wow! LIFE IS FINE. Langston Hughes said it best,
I’m Qui
Wishing Production to thee, while I cop a moment of rest.
I’ll produce a NEWS PERUSE – post this sleepless vex.

How’s your weeks beginning?

If you’re paralelling me – you’re grinning. 🙂
