DegustApproach this day with DEGUST. Savor the good on the pallet of your life like a nutritious sublingual. Degust simply means to taste carefully, so as to appreciate a thing fully.

Mmm, I awoke this morning to the aroma of life. I’m glad I made it.
We’ve finally broached another optimal Friday and I want to taste it.

I will utilize degust starting with the rising of the sun in the East.
I’ll utilize degust when breakfast is done and it’s time to eat.

I want to taste it. I want to enjoy it and digest.
Good morning sweetheart – let today be your best!

Good morning sweetheart, love on yourself and join in on a )))HUG(((,
I’m Qui

Up sipping lemon juice
waiting for the sun to show her proof –

I’m totally poised to Degust.

Word of The Day

Yep. I stayed up late last night and woke up early today.
I’m merry, I’m happy and vow to put very little on my plate. 🙂

Hey-ey! It’s true. This is a very merry day indeed.
I’m over here clowning with family — I call them the Beloved WE.

And so you see, I was also thinking about you.
The Cowboys lost yesterday and I’m still silver and blue.
You already knew!
Win or Lose – WE gotta stay true.

That’s why I’m always thinking about you.
Staying true is what I do.

Amidst all of the love, gift giving and play,
I had to dart off and hit you with the Word of The Day:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, to you o’ internet fam. You are always a gift to me,
I’m Qui
Loving on you – is what I do, the knowledge of – is no mystery.
Thanks for stopping by and digging me.

Word of The Day

Good morning “ami!” How in the world have you been?
Our 1st new word is “ami” and it is French meaning friend.

Dear Ami, I have missed you. Did you acquire much work and play
since we last spoke, 2-days ago on the hump of a mid-week day?

I’ve indulged in much reading, comprehending and analyzing views…
What I have not been doing – in the least, is watching local or satellite news.

I’ve nothing against Chuck Todd or Velshi & Rule
though to inhale that on a daily will make you the fool.

auto-cash-counter-gif.gifI’m not a good fool, so I’ve been reading and investing in self.
I’m a writer. Reading is fundamental and contributes to my colleague’s wealth.

Enough about me, let’s get back to the Word of The Day,
Are you being “perspicuous” when you speak your say?

Perspicuous means (of language) transparent and clear; easy to understand.
This is the charge of every orator, writer and book binder in the land.

Clear and concise is best. It is true.
Therefore “perspicuous” is word #2.

I’m parable-simple, still perspicuous in my writes of convey.
Don’t let the griot hold you up, yo’ – like a good sonnet, digest the say.

the-cat-and-the-hat-michael-meyers.gifI think you can. Dr. Seuss and the longevity of rap have paved the way
for the comprehension of griot; story telling via rhyme did pervade.

Before there were any Dr. Seuss books or one track of Hip Hop/Rap
griot masters were passing down news in rhyme – no shine, just the facts.

Surely you knew that before reading it here today,
Therefore your 3rd new word must be “pervade.”

Pervade means (especially of a smell) spread throughout and perceived in every part of.
The griot format indeed permeated; tho credit-wise it was underrated. Today let it be dug.

Last but not least, I’ve found another interesting word that I’d like to share with you,
I don’t know if you have room in your vocabulary for it, but the word is “moue” (moo).

moue-face-poutingMoue is not new and is seen most on a fixed-minded face;
Moue is the word for that pouting expression used to convey annoyance or distaste.

Word of Advice: Don’t moue.
It doesn’t look cute on you.

My “Word of The Day” title – seems to convey that there would be just 1,
I’m Qui
and I chose 1 + 3 because 4 new words will yield more vocabulary fun.

What on earth will you talk about tonight?
A new word or two will sew you up tight.

Word of the day…

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on January 20, 2017 at 1:12 am

word-counter-sign.jpgI rarely have a WORD to say – in fact,
most times I open my mouth there’s a paragraph.

So A WORD? I may not have one in singular,
but if I had to grab one, I might grab: STAR.

I’m feeling like a STAR today.
The wind in my hair – I’m prime for some play.

It’s Friday, an #ImAliveDay and I really can’t argue.
There’s nothing going on that could effect my song;
my stardom time is due.
Yours too.

So do join me today in celebrating yourself.
Grab your shades and scarf and exhibit top shelf.

Why? Because you should and you absolutely can.
If you don’t celebrate you – then who will man?

In the midst of all of that, I’ve had an eureka; an ooo wee!
I’ve come up with another WORD! The word is: ME.

When you say that word it is always in reference to you.
So no, I don’t have A WORD today, more like a paragraph or two.

The weekend is upon you, stay up and celebrate your good.
I’m Qui
and this is a good time to reconnect with good folks in your hood.

We’re all STARS. Let’s constellate!
Another WORD OF THE DAY has to be #RELATE.
