Check the angles of the wind, keep your ear to ground
And if your course is incorrectly charted – go ‘head and turn around.

I’m quick to get up today and quick to get on my way
I’ve got a lot of work planned at the start & then I’m off to play!

How’s it going baby? Any chance you’re in Arizona?

If you are, locate me and join me – our think tank loves a good head!

Twosday

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on October 17, 2017 at 4:22 am

twos-dayToday is about you – so DO YOU and a new thing or two beyond your job scene and domestic routine.

Not sure what you could add to your usual mill? Below are a few idea-starters from POP SUGAR that may help toggle your noggin a little to encourage you to think outside of the box. Pick two today and DO YOU:

1. Go to a bookstore and get lost. Spend hours exploring every genre of book known to the world. Better still, snag one off the shelf and plop down in a comfy chair. Close down the store trying to finish that book (hey, you’ll save some cash), and leave only when the employees start giving you the side-eye.

Just me and my dog…

2. Indulge in some selfies. OK, as a general rule selfies should probably be taken sparingly, but every once in a while, it’s healthy to get dressed in an outfit you love and shamelessly take photos of yourself that you actually like. Let yourself keep clicking until you get it right. No one is there to judge you, except maybe your dog.

3. Complete a project you’ve been putting off. Make yourself go to a coffee shop, buckle down, and work. Update your résumé, put together a portfolio, finish your great American novel, apply to a new job or grad school, whatever. Just do it!

4. Take a hike. Spend some time with mother nature and see how the two of you get along when no one else is around. Stop and smell the roses, watch the sun set, embrace the quiet.

5. Try anew workout. Sometimes certain workouts (like Zumba, Booty Barre, anything dance-related) can be a little bit embarrassing to learn in front of other people. Master one of these fitness skills alone, or at least work on them enough so that when you’re in a class or doing it in front of your significant other, you look like you know what you’re doing . . . sort of.

6. Meditate. Find a quite space, turn the television off, put the radio on a zen or soundscape station (a station of soothing instrumentals), sit on a pillow on the floor, close your eyes and take deep breaths. Focus on a full inhale into your nose and focus on the slow exhale through your nose. Do this for about 10-minutes. Think of nothing. Focus on your breath. Be grateful for ever breath. Someone somewhere in the world is depending on a breathing machine to stay alive today. Say a prayer for them before you’re done meditating.

7. Take the longest, hottest bath of your life. Turn on some soothing music and enjoy a long soak with no fear of unwelcome interruptions.

Adding a couple of things to your daily grind that you normally don’t do,
like putting in time to self entertain, to care for and thank you –

is absolutely the right thing to do.
In all that you do in a day – don’t forget about you.

Not today, anyway.
You’ve got 24-hours to insert  some play.

Today is Tuesday and a good day to get crunk.
Pick two for you to conquer before the hump.

Me? Since I’ve conquered meditation early I’m free to workout or crook.
But since I’ve no time to steal, I’ll sit down and work on my book.

I like an exciting week, so I’m starting it off with adequate creative play!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, DO something for YOU, perhaps 2 on this Twosday.

Dallas Fans in Cardinal Land

In Communication, Griot, News, Sports, Video on September 26, 2017 at 4:45 am

Demarcus Lawrence – #90 put in work

I don’t want to piss nobody off — really
and I despise no NFL team like i do Philly.

cardinal-bird.gifI don’t.
So to “ride on the Cardinals” – I won’t.

What I will say
is that Dallas came to Phoenix to play.
and hey-ey!
That works for me on any day.

Good morning Tuesday. I am alread enjoyjng your seam,
I’m Qui
Appreciating the support shown across the NFL sport – from all who took a knee.

Take Flight – Elevate

In Communication, Travel on January 3, 2017 at 5:00 am

this-end-upMonday came fast, did its thang’ and went real quick!
It rained all day in Harlem, the streets were slick.

I still went out because rain, sleet or shine
NEW YORK is exciting all of the time.

As sure as Tuesday is birthed more rain has come with it,
But I’ve got a plane to catch – so I won’t be able to kick it.

Though regardless of my location whether ground or in air
I love staying connected & kicking it with you anywhere.

Good morning baby. How did you sleep last night?
I slept quite hard before catching this flight.

The time spent in flight today will be 6.5-hours
Never mind a soon to relax, cocktail or a shower.

It ain’t happening.
Until 9pm I’ll be metal wing flapping.

“Good social action” can happen if your flight is less than two hours long.
Any time over that – too much talking is bound to go wrong.

I enjoy a socialize strong but I’m not much of an airplane talker.
I don’t drink much water either – because I don’t want to be a walker. 😀

So here it is Tuesday, Monday had passed and Wednesday is in route,
I’m Qui
Feeling quite fly with thee. For that’s what this day is all about.

An even HAPPIER Friday!

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on April 1, 2016 at 10:25 am

q2-25th-bday-qui-44Monday was great and Tuesday was even better.
Knowledge comprehended; game sharper – tongue wetter.

Hump Day came along and brought goodness on its back.
Smiles softened the miles covered… in the sand, I saw 2 sets of tracks.

Thursday came in briefly and quickly spent the hours of 24,
then I wake up to a beautiful weekends start. My Fridays, I do adore.

“Encore!” I honestly say that — every 7 days,
I’m Qui
Happier again and poised to win on this another awesome Friday.

What have you got up for the weekend?
Take time out to DO YOU#SelfPreserve spend.

So it is…

In Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement on November 4, 2010 at 7:22 am

So it is that the Republicans won the house and the Democrats keep the Senate. Personally…I think it’s a good thing. No one party should to control “everything”. Diversity is key. And so it is that we have another opportunity to utilize bi-partisanship. History will be told through our (individual and collective) actions…

Tuesday came and Tuesday went
You spoke out – your vote was spent.

I appreciate all who participated in the midterm votes.
I really missed the input of the “young American folk“.

And so it is that two parties will rule the governing weather
I pray we are productive and not counter in working together.

The world is watching and reaping global attention is cool.
The world is watching – let us not act like ignorant fools.

For those that don’t like Obama @ least he cares about your health.
Right now good health in many families — is a luxury that’s stealth.

And so it is that THURSDAY is upon us and I’m feeling lucky today.
Life is good in my personal hood – and that is better than okay.

This mid term election season has rendered wisdom to many – including myself.
The final turn out reminded me, it’s best we that come together for the good of the countrys health.

Let’s do it! I’m all in. I kind of dig working it out,
I’m Qui
saying Oui! I think positive bi-partisanship is what it’s all about.
