Entering the change…

In Griot, News, Politics, Video on November 8, 2017 at 4:51 am

Theme music for today

Did you hear Joe Buddens PUMP IT UP song booming from your neighbors house last night? If so, that’s because Virginia and New Jersey showed up and showed out.

It’s not Friday night but you cannot tell by the way my neighbors were wielding out last night after hearing that the country isn’t as doomed as it seemed.

The college educated suburbs in VA showed up and had something to make clear; they had something to say.
New Jersey came in on that same Democratic horse and up on hind legs insisted they came to play.

Welcome back kinfolk. You were missed.
Though I admit I’m gonna miss Chris.

Remember Hurricane Sandy
when he and Obama were dandy?

I enjoyed that hug.
I appreciated Chris giving up the love.

So, yeah I’m going to miss him and his snarky filled, sarcastic-ridden speech.
But not as much as Chris missed the crowds the day he closed down the beach.

jon-stewart-chair-danceYeah. It’s all good.
This morning NJ has a new Governor in their hood.

There are many across the country who are starting this day off with a smile
after realizing the country may be waking up; marking a new mile.

Me? Sure, I’m happy. I’m an energy lover who thrives on what’s in the air.
Right now happyis spilling over and I feel it in my toes and my hair.

Woo, I’m surrounded! There’s a feeling of giddiness in my solar plexus and I’m ready to play!
Entering the change that can propel us from lame is the perfect hump to ride on this day.

Jump atop of it and co-mingle with the person next to ya. Yield them a smile.
I’m Qui
excited to write that visceral hate isn’t the vibe and quite happy to walk a new mile.

What’s Left

Opportunity over Rabbit hole

What’s left in a world that’s chasing its tail
down a rabbit hole to hell
with an over inflated Wall Street, at the bell
and a healthcare plan that wishes you’d never get well?

I’ll tell you on a dime, exactly What’s Left:
Your GOOD MIND! Now, tend to your health.”

Good morning baby! How’d you sleep last night?
Me? Snug as a bug in a rug; solid and tight.

My dreams were alright, easy going, I’m sure I cooed.
Then I woke up to Life, Wednesday and YOU! All of which is cool.

What’s Left for me today? To hang with you and highlight the good
Since Jon Ossoff won’t be representing that Georgia hood.

And that’s okay, right? The political pool is filled with smoke.
I respect the people’s choice – twas the people who cast the vote.

Let yesterday’s story be wrote and make today memorable still.
What’s Left is opportunity! Go ‘head and cop a feel. 🤗

Making it my own…

I went shopping yesterday and bought a cute little chaise.
I’m in the mood today to rearrange this place.


I’m in the mood today to make a new space
In my life, my heart – renew the smile on my face.

I do meditate.
It’s the best way
to start the day.

What’s Left after you loose your sanity and your cool?
Well, there’s always, a cave and a bib for your drool.😄

But that’s not you! And I’m willing to bet
If you put forth new effort you can increase What’s Left.

Exercise your body, exercise your mind.
You’ll find What’s Left beyond a tighter behind

Is clarity of thought and creativity in flow.
I recommend focusing on YOU – you deserve it, Yo!

So with this beautiful new days begin,
I’m Qui
bidding you encouragement to Win! Win! Win!

Yesterday had its relative depths.
Today: opportunity is absolutely What’s Left.

Take it. Make it your own.
I’ve got your back. You are not alone.

UP For IT

up-for-it-all

Good morning Monday. Did you sleep well?
Last week when we met you were crunk as hell.

Volume up for a spell, but then you calmed down.
Tuesday through Sunday came in and wore the crown.

Some days were smoother than others that did spike
to a high degree in topics de life… some of which, I didn’t like.

But hey! I’m alright and Monday you are back again.
I’m smiling at you, folks hate on you – but you’ve always been my friend.

heads-up
I like new things, new people and new begins.
I’m focused on opportunity and going for the #Win!

The script on my desk says, and I quote: “RIGHT ON!”
The creator has fresh juice – so we will WRITE ON!

I live outside of the box and I’m certainly UP For IT.
If there’s a clear shot that fits the skills we’ve got – lets GO FOR IT.

Rain? DO Pour down from the skies in sheets to our creative panes.
Rain down heavy, like we’ve broke a levy. Let Monday yield creative reign.

Are you awake. Are you ready? Up to bat is the next home run hitter.
The pitcher has a twisted curve – but no skin off of your back, GO GETTER!

You’re UP For IT and it’s yours! Never mind the pitchers skill.
I’m Qui
on the same team as thee and todays GOOD is yours — for real.
Or in my line of work: “for reel.” 😀

My senses awake to a good bake – in the oven is honey roasted ham.

I love ham in the morning. I do love to eat.
Nourishment is necessary – it’s the first stop on my beat.

I stay on beat and nicely timed in cadence and flow.
We had breakfast for two & it was quite good. Yo!

He sipped, I sipped…
lips to heat – I did dip.

It was good and extremely soothing.
The aroma before dine had me drooling.

So early I – indeed Woke Up To It.
I ran through it like I’m off a 40-day fast —
Y’all, I ran through it.

Good morning, good morning – it’s morning again!

I do just love my HUMP DAY begins.

Humpin HAPPY over here

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on March 16, 2016 at 8:52 am

q2-25th-bday-qui-44This morning I woke up and I was happy about that.
I had a meeting at 5am that equaled a win and I was happy about that.

Brunch time found me with a latte in hand, sitting on the patio where I now stand.
Mingling in good company with folks that I love. Thanking my stars and my God up above.

I’m Humpin HAPPY over here – I’m so glad to be in good health.
I’llness sought me out, but my vitamin regimen helped to keep me stealth.

I could use a little more physical activity in my life but there just aren’t enough hours in a day.
I’m seeking a route to successfully workout the burning of more cals into my beloved everyday.

Hip! Hip! Hooray! I’m open to dancing and considering going hiking.
My mind is open and my body is hoping the opportunity will yield to its liking.

You see, I’m not an athlete, I’m a writer, a chic with a camera and tripod.
My nails may not be acrylic’d out nor has the gym etched upon my bod. lol!

I’m a pretty active chic – I’m always on the go and hauling equipment with.
I usually show up to film the show, hi-5 and throw in a few cool quips.

I’m the chic enjoying her day for everything that it is and everything that it is not.
I’m Qui
and I’ll be outside for most of the day, because Phoenix is NOT yet hot.

It’s 70 degrees and beautiful – I’m Humpin HAPY over here!
I bid you good energy that you’re going to need for that #WIN that’s near.

Good Morning Monday!

Good-Morning-MondayGood Morning Monday, what have you got up for me today?
I’m ready to comprehend, I’m ready to play.

I’m ready to make a statement, I do have a say.
I’m hard on my work. I’m hard on my play. 😀

And today, dear Monday, I’m just happy to be alive.
I’m thankful for days passed; the love did thrive.

I woke up this morning at approximately 4
with no thieves, no police trolling my door.

I knelt down to pray, then up to make a cup of jo.
My mind on the now and the future; on the to and the fro.

Yo! Yo! Yo, I’m up for it.
There’s purpose out there and I’m trying to score it.

Life? I adore it. What have you got up today?
Be good to yourself, put negativity away —

even if it’s a person that you usually see everyday.
#SelfPreservation is yours. Be convinced and sway.

Make it a Good Morning Monday and join me in feeling great!
I’m Qui
Encouraging thee to #SelfPreserve and revel in the GOOD on your plate.

Start the week off the way you want it to end.
Good Morning Monday! I’m charting for the #WIN!

The weekend was long enough

Reaching Out...

Reaching Out…

The weekend was long enough that I got plenty of rest in,
In between mixing and mingling with distant and visiting kin.

We started our Memorial Celebration Friday morning by supporting a Purple heart troupe
that was posted up in front of Basha’s hoping to receive shoppers left-over loot.

I was not shopping at Basha’s, but when I saw the Veterans booth in place – I dipped in
to buy a bottle of Dr.Pepper and get additional change – to make a veteran grin.

As I inserted the folded cash, the veteran began to “appreciate shower,”
and told me that ‘God thinks as much of me as he does’ and then gave me a paper flower.

That was an awfully nice thing to say – a gesture fit to adore,
with humility I smiled, knowing the whole while, “Pshhh! God thinks way more!lol!

What a break-out beginning, I proceeded to celebrate the weekend in fashion
by THANKING every veteran I came across; a genuine and humbling action.

I gave my life a little more thought and realized there was more that I could do,
so I called my USAF Vet dad and offered him to relocate over a state or two.

Dad’s permanent address is still in Texas, and he could use a newer view.
The weekend was long enough for me to not only convince Dad, but his wife too.

I know this is only the beginning but if the weight of Memorial Day is really that strong,
t’is the perfect time to do all that you can to say thanks. Charity begins at home.

God bless me and my good heart, Dad accepted the offer and is gearing up to go.
In a few short months, I will return home, with Dad and Stepmom in tow.

And here we go – life and her challenges will be new again.
The weekend was long enough that I went for the ‘off-the-cuff’ #WIN.

No details are written in stone – this all happened on yesterday.
Today is a win – I’m excited to begin – manifesting good all the way.

I’m not just doing this to help dad out – I’m doing this with my own future in mind.
Careful — how you treat your elders, for in the future, such is yours in kind.

Alas, the weekend is over and Tuesday is duly staring me in the face,
I’m Qui
Happy about it all. I’m on my mark, and ready-set, for this race.

Running for the #WIN
at this new weeks begin!

You’re on the HUMP don’t give up NOW

RandomNewsOkay, what’s really going on? Whatcha’ up to kinfolk?
Are you getting high off of life because her successes are dope?
When you’re at wits end – grip the knot in the rope.
To always win – is your objective quote.

Unlike this fella,’ who chose to meet his maker
At the doors of a New York projects elevator.
It happened a few years back,
but that doesn’t change the outcome fact.

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.

A Happy Show for the 1st Lady MO

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Qui Audio Byte, Self Improvement on January 17, 2012 at 12:00 am

Happy Birthday FLOTUS Michelle Obama

I can not say enough about this young lady – and there’s surely not enough good press
To describe the way she represents – so I thought a sisterly view would paint best.

I am but her sister, and it has nothing to do with the color of her skin.
I’m proud to call her sister because Michelle is from the stock of: WIN.

You can’t beat this sister doing good – she’s younger than the Pres, but did you know
she used to be his career mentor before he was ever her beau?

She courted the law first of all and Barack Obama was an addition to the game.
She shared with him knowledge that schooled him like college & ended up carrying his name.
Their core commonality: BIG BRAINS.

By no means is she a wall flower, though she knows how to walk with grace.
I love her position in the medias vision – she keeps a warm smile on her face.

Alas today is her birthday – so I had to compose a griot shout out.
I know it’s not “noted news”, but I’ll bet you there’s ‘gone be a party at the White house.

Oprah and Gayle ‘nem will likely be there & they’ll be toasting to positive hoop’la.
Mika from Morning Joe, Soledad, and Suzanne Maliveaux – but maybe not Rush Limbaugh.

I don’t know. I just wish my name was on the elegant guest list.
But because it’s not, I won’t be a snot – thus I’m sending my fondest wish:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLOTUSFirst Lady Of The United States,
I’m Qui
Glad to bear witness to thee and admiring your style and grace.
