News Peruse

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on December 4, 2015 at 6:57 am

news-peruseLet’s talk about what’s gone wrong and let’s talk about what’s still good.
Let’s talk about the #GunViolence breakout in OUR neighborhoods.

To the news on the tube – we are glued and in full submission
wondering if the breaking news of a MASS SHOOTING is to be considered TERRORISM.

Mass violent death tolls have risen and I’m sitting here asking the universe why?
What is the cause that beats all and has convinced folk to take their own and others lives?

God shield us from minds that have adopted ill plights – and thanks for every ill attempt thwarted.
Bless the surviving families in morn for those who have – in a mass casualty, departed.

What happened in San Bernadino on Wednesday morning – surely God forbade.
Someone targeted and shot up a social center for the disability – while hey were in mode celebrate.

14 were killed and 21 were hurt.
2 suspects are dead – though initially they were looking for a third.

1 of the deceased  was a woman. What in the world?
I thought sugar and spice were the ingredients of girls.

I guess that was the word back then – when I was a kid.
I guess things have changed. Ingredients reneged.

Turns out the deceased female was the co-terrorists wife
Seems the two of them planned the day of mayhem and strife.

Apparently this was their plan – to end theirs and others lives.
They left behind a 6-month old baby and a lifetime of WHY’s.

We see it, we hear it – but what’s going on and what are we to do
with the out break of mass shootings? Bleak reality truths.

Those folks done up and left their youth
leaving behind mass pains that weigh on me and you.
Ooo!

In the end we’ve learned there wasn’t a 3rd suspect.
The terrorist came and lived a short reign – before law enforcement escorted them to death.

Basically, they ceased the terrorizing and put the betrothed terrors in check.
May good always triumph. Mayhem’s a bad bet.

Somebody said praying to God won’t fix it – God can’t help.
If we turn away from our foolish ways – I believe He’ll help us arm ourselves.

Too bad this isn’t an isolated neighborhood, so that we could all just move.
To harm thyself and as many others in a radial distance – is a nasty groove.

From bad energy – I do remove myself. This is serious business. This is real life.
I’ll continue to watch and pray as I’m on my way. I’ll utilize a vigilant eye.

Life is so good… so why? Who lit the nasty fuse?
I refuse to yield all chatter to bad in this winter News Peruse.

Therefore I’m going to talk about something else – let’s get it understood,
Qui Entertainment is into positive energy and passing on vibes of good.

We are into spreading unity and weighing in on the social scales.
We’re into you and your safety too. Not interested in hand baskets bound for hell.

So let’s lighten things up for a spell. Keep praying but keep smiling too.
Life is short and evil will meet its thwart still there’s so much LIFE in you.

How are you feeling? How do you want to feel? Reach down and grab your boot straps.
Pull them up, give yourself a hug. Go out, fist bump and dap.

Clap! Clap! It’s Friday baby and the world does hold much
The available vibes are sad, glad, mad, angry, fear or love.

What’cha want? You can have it.
And when life get’s a little funky – kick back and laugh at it.

The spirit of offense is on the troll and it’s hoping to affect you.
Look at what’s going on. Resist giving in to the offensive truths.

No matter what, you are the master of your own fate.
Be happy, be brave and watch what and whom you invite into your space,

in your life, on your journey — be sure to vet each one.
Nothing in life is free, not even safety – no assured funs.

It’s me and you hun’, let’s ride this thing out flat.
Let’s put down the corn and dismiss the scorn – we need to have each others back.
Can you do that?

Enough of my UNITY PUSH, there are other headlines in the news.
I know you didn’t drop by to get single topic high – so do let us peruse:

divider blk_south1. Georgia had a mass shooting on Wednesday as well.
Instead of 14 dead, they lost 4 and mass media coverage was light in tell.

 2. Elevator Interlude. Who’s riding ‘that thing’ with you?

3. Reclaiming the F-Word. Returning Ownership to the girls

4. Politicing on Twitter:  Compare & Contrast.  Who are the GO GETTERS?

5. Laughter heals the soul – it only stops when you get too old. Don’t get old.

qBefore my WordPress time, I was out on my own
I built a website that I’ll forever call home.

This website holds some of the coldest writings;
The authors were true and their lives:  exciting.

Young was the day and way before President Obama.
Even before Facebook – we assembled and aired ill drama.

Not for the cause of gossip or to spread
but mostly for the purposes of “the mind” being fed.

It was real conversation – perhaps something my man said the other day.
It was raw & untapped – no limits of what the author could say.

Well that was then, though today is shaping us nice,
it seems the grace that blessed us then, has come around twice.

In the age of all that’s good and social network mixing,
it’s good to know there’s a literal site where FREE SPEECH is kicking.

It’s a grown conversation – we say what the heck we feel.
It’s not a profane show. With integrity – we keep it real.

It’s not a PG show and certainly not for the faint at heart.
I can’t believe it’s come around again – 4 years past our part.

But it has indeed. Would you care to drop in and be nosey?
Learn something new, be blushed, breathless and rosy?

Then by all means of hospitality: I invite you to do drop in.
Spectators bring your glasses – Writers bring your pens.

The Linguistic: GRIOT

In Communication, Griot, Networking on January 14, 2011 at 7:50 am
Recognize the linguistic. Enjoy it's relativity.

My Kinfolk.

One of my main TAG WORDS is: GRIOT. I very much like being identified with the historic West African Linguistic. [Griot is pronounced Gree-OH. ]

It was July of 2006— I’d taken my first trip to the BIG APPLE. I stayed in the PARAMOUNT HOTEL and all was well with the world, (according to my fantastic TIMES SQUARE view). To make a long story short and get to the point…while I was there, among all of the things I did and all of the monuments I visited, none were as memorable as meeting Fred Brathwaite aka Fab5Freddy. We hit it right off and took a ride in his Mercedes to delve more into what seemed to be a never ending showcase of absolute & relative conversational rhyme…by yours truly of course. Fab was fantastic in encouraging me to do so and at some point during our spontaneous meeting he dropped knowledge on me and informed me of a historical West African Linquistic called: Griot. Griot is the art form of telling stories and/or passing down cultural information IN RHYME.

Had you ever heard of it? I had not.

Thirsty for knowledgeI always am— so at the first free moment I had (post my conversation with F5F) I researched the heck out of the word Griot and how this linguistic thing worked. I, like many African Americans have no clear record of where in Africa our families may have originated – so to be pointed to out of crowd and told that my style of conversation likens to a tribe in W. Africa…I am thrilled.

*´¨) ¸.·* ´¸.·*´¨) ¸.*·*¨) (¸.·´ (¸ .* ¸.·* )´¸.·*´¨) ¸.*·*¨) (¸.·´ (¸ .*

It doesn’t mean that’s where I’m from – nor does it mean that’s where I’m going,
but it’s good to know there’s historical documentation for the form of seeds that I’m sewing.

I’ve been talking in rhyme since my conversational begin.
I remember utilizing the skill & stunning my kin.

I remember my 2nd grade teacher “literally” telling me —
that I was a poetic genius for my versing scheme.
Ooo Wee.

I didn’t know what it meant, but I kept the encouragement in stride
then it all made sense once I met the HIP HOP Statesman Fab 5.

It’s been all good on a daily – I enjoy sharing my comprehended flow
I’m Qui
and I’m grateful to know I’m DNA gifted something like a Griotte.

[Griot is the term usually referring to a male story teller – Griotte is the term used for the female counter part]
