NEWS PERUSE_GossipI be listening to you, but are you listening too?
You’re talking and making points that you don’t quite follow through.

Your inner-wisdom is what I like about you.
Though sometimes it seems that you’ve never met you.

You have a gun for the sole use of shooting your own foot.
You’re as wise as the greats but sometimes walk with a crook.

What gives?” I ask of you and in turn, you ponder.
You conjure good for everyone else, but for your own well being, you wander…

You think that you are without a clue?
Stop talking to others and Listen to YOU:

Yep. Oprah knows this too – so don’t you be the last one,
I’m Qui
Listening out for WE on this Sabbath day of fun.

When it comes to #SelfPreservation, I always want some.

Terry-Crews-curious.gifIf you’re asking me, “Why Qui? Do what?
I sincerely wish for you to experience more love.

If you can think more of yourself, others will have no choice but to.
Rest in knowing God created, loves and resides inside of you.

Know without a doubt that your life is worth the living.
And when you’re a casualty of people who fall short –
please don’t let that stop you from love-giving.

Every day upon your initial awake,
take 5-10 minutes to pray and meditate.


Do it once a day and you may find that you crave more.
I’m Qui
I keep clarity in my life by activating silence at my core.

Don’t let the life-of-the-day run you.
Acknowledge your life first and journey the day through.
Mindful framing can work wonders for me and you.

O! How Good It Is

O-i-love-oprah2017I was fortunate to be a part of a studio audience taping of a Tao workshop hosted by Dawn Q. this weekend and it was phenomenal. Mind refreshing information about changing the way you think in order to change the quality of your life for the better. Upon close of the workshop we networked and talked more about the book referenced: “I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years.”

book_Ive-Decided-to-Live-120-Years_600.pngTherein networking I learned more about the production team and this particular book campaign. Noone asked me if I knew Oprah, (this happens to me a lot when I’m out and about. It’s an energy thing) but in the end it was clear through a series of questioning that some indeed wanted to know if I knew Oprah. I was doleful to tell them that I do not. Still I’m always happy that my energy would invoke people to ask that question, though more over that, I began to wonder if Oprah knew of this book. I’m an avid SUPER SOUL SUNDAY viewer and have learned a lot via the series so I took to the search engine again to see what they had on Oprah + Tao and found this:

Wayne Dyer and Oprah Winfrey – The Wisdom of the Tao

Oprah is about nourishment and whether it’s of the mind, spirit, soul or the stomach – she’s leading the charge. I’m already sending direct vibes her way in hopes that she’ll find this book and review the author on an upcoming Super Soul Sunday.  The “I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years” book is both enlightening and nutritious. Speaking of nutrition have you seen those new O That’s Good Soup commercials? The manufacturer behind the health conscious goodness is Kraft and the creator is Oprah.  Just another tasteful  incentive to evolve as it pertains to your diet. I haven’t tried the refrigerated cuisine line of soups yet, but it is high on my grocery list now.

I’m in the business of collecting and sharing good. I love hearing your personal stories of good fortune and sharing them with others. Somehow I am genuinely able to  bask in the glow of your good energy flow along with you. Meaning when people tell me about their new car, home or the raise on their job, I can immediately feel their surge of good energy in my tummy (my solar plexus). I’ll usually start jumping up and down (like a Price Is Right game show contestant) along with the person whose sharing the good news. I  surge so genuinely it often leaves onlookers confused  as to which of us is the good news recipient.  Having said as much you can see why Oprah comes up as much as she does. I love her good energy and her positive proactive contributions. Just as equally, I love sharing it with you.

The consumption of good energy is good for you. The FDA hasn’t said so because it used to be common sense – not to mention the message lacks lobbying backers. You don’t need a lobbyist to offer up subsidies for you to choose more wisely for yourself on anything. Change the way you think and change your life. This is something we can all do for free. The FDA is not putting their stamp on ‘free’ either. Where’s the kickback in that?


It’s morning again sweetheart and I’m up to my ol’ southern ways
of kissing your forehead upon waking and praying for you throughout the day.

Hey-ey! It’s just what I’m into and I hope it is understood
among our differences on a daily I’m always for you and your good.

If ever I should learn a new thing or an old thing that could help
I will bring it to the table whether for increase of health or wealth.

Either way I’m into good news as most of my writes reveal.
I’m Qui
Good morning and oui! It’s good to know there’s hope for what ills…

Get EXCITED, already!

In Communication, Griot, Video on September 12, 2016 at 4:37 am


Life is good. Life is fine.
Memories mature and get better like wine.

But then again there are those times
when EXCITEMENT come in and takes over your mind.

During these times one might not contemplate.
I mean, when you know you wanna’ DO IT — WHY would you WAIT?


I’d have done the same thing. I just know it.
When I’m excited I can’t refrain the ‘SHOW IT!’

Which is good, because it’s energy, it’s positive and I pray contagious.
To not have an opportunity to express this feeling would be outrageous.

What are you excited about today? Express yourself already!
Dance like no one’s looking, be happy, like Hoppy & Betty:

Today is new and yesterday is gone, o’ sister and brother.
I suggest taking-it to the floor with a musical score
and dancing-it-out like you’re Usher.

Do that Michael Jackson move and then shake your fandangle.
And if you feel a little Zimbabwean spirit – bust out the old Bo’ Jangles.

Heck! I’d do it! In fact, I’m up on my feet and doing a little something-something right now,
I’m Qui
and Good Morning to thee, Get Excited, already – and express the HOW.

Searching for your #Purpose on this Monday?
Perhaps you could benefit from a little SOUL SUNDAY:

Image… and while I’m sure it comes with a little rhythm (seeing as how he’s kept the beat of life so long), NORMAN’s SOUL is amazing. Yes! I’m talking about the creator of MAUDE, The JEFFERSON’S and ALL IN THE FAMILY. I grew up on these shows in syndication. Had they not been on television, I may not have ever noticed some socially distinct differences in cultures. Some made me laugh as a youth and others (often times) made me wonder why anyone would take pleasure in scripting such bleak views of life and the struggle – especially, tapping into and playing off of the struggle of civil rights and inequality.

If I don’t laugh, it’ll make me cry,” — when I was about 7-years old, I heard my BigMomma say these words while watching what I thought was a comedy show – in fact, her favorite show. At the time, I was conflicted in mind as to WHAT that meant. A 7-year olds position is to choose to laugh – hard and as much as possible, crying rarely crossed my mind. However, today, I understand completely what BigMomma meant, and revelation didn’t wait until I was 40 to show up. In fact, I learned to ready myself for the backlashes of racial divisiveness by watching shows like Norman Lears. Somebody had to tell me. I thank God it good_timeswas The Jefferson’s, GOOD TIMES, etc. It taught me a lot, not really about myself, but about those who formed the show and what they meant; it identified those who laughed at it and those who laughed with it– in sharp distinction. I learned to be more conscientious, to be more aware of myself, what I was doing and who I was doing it with.

That’s pretty powerful.

It’s pretty powerful to think that the creative mind of a show, NORMAN LEAR, would nearly completely shape the lives of so many therefore I was wide awake Sunday morning at 6:00am when Oprah was introducing him on SUPER SOUL SUNDAY. Did you see it? I love the SSS series because they never disappoint in the inspiration category. Early into the session Oprah asked Norman this question:

  • OPRAH: [reading from Normans published memoirs] A life in high school zeroing in on the humor of our existence, a life in college cut short by WW2, a life as crew member B-17 bomber flying 52 missions over Europe, a life in the world of entertainment with sub-lives and television, radio, movies, and music, a life as a political activists, a life in philanthropy, a late start in life as a spiritual seeker, 3 lives as a husband, 6 as a father – with my youngest born 48-years after my eldest and 4 as a grandfather.” So what I want to know is there a unifying thread that connects all of those parts of your life?
  • NORMAN: I think the unifying thread is – you know there are 2 little words in the English language that we don’t recognize as being as important as they are (for me) and they are: OVER and NEXT. When something is over, it’s over and we’re on to next. And if there was a hammock in the middle of those two words that would be what the philosophers tell us is “living in the moment,” — the hanger between Over and Next.


Norman Lear has SOUL and it’s a beautiful 93-year old clunker.
He said his “life is extended by weeks ‘knowing Jefferson is ‘GIVING IT’ to Bunker.”

Norman Lear is absolutely right
though I hope they’re RACE FREE ‘on the other side.’


It’s good to laugh and Norman has always had a good angle.
The media might have “brought him” but I think he’s Gods angel.

We all are such, in a sense. We’re angel’s made by God.
Some of us are vertically docile and some prefer the horizontal nod.

Meaning some of us bow to ‘yes’ – easy and some of us run to the ‘no’
as it pertains to following the law — so into lifes trials the no nodders go.

That is, generally speaking.
So put in what’cha want to get out – karma can be wreaking.

I enjoyed Norman Lears interview with Oprah, it was substantial to the spectrum of my view
I was enlightened to learn that his favorite [closing] salutation is: To be continued…

And that’s how you know after over, there will be a next
Accept “no ends,” my friends – the continuum connects.

For Norman Lear, I have respect, to GOOD LIVING – he is an abider.
I’ll yield him the highest compliment (to a man of his time) He is an AWESOME PROVIDER.

I say that because during his SSS interview Oprah asked of ‘the highest compliment’ as a question
and he said that people would say he provided for his family – (he’s still a kid from the great depression).

I am no aficionado – no, I don’t get to call it, but I do get to WRITE the shots,
I’m Qui
and Norman has provided for more than his family with all of the series footage that we’ve got.

If you have an opportunity to catch OWNS Super Soul Sunday [Season 7 – Ep. 13], please do! It’s a treat.
