The Knots Prayer


Dear God :

Please untie the knots that are in my mind ,

my heart my life.

Remove the have nots ,

the can nots and the do nots

that I have in my mind

Erase all the will nots ,

might nots

that may find a home in my heart .

Release me from the could nots

would nots

that obstruct my life .

And most of all

Dear God ;

I ask that you remove from my mind ,

my heart and my life

all the “ am nots”

that I have allowed to hold me back ,

especially the thought,

that I am not good enough

Author Known to God.

Saturday Evening, July 31st, 2010 -  We met Yuriko whom we hadn`t seen for a loooooooong time.
She is both a close, plus my oldest, friend in Japan ! I have known her since May, 2004.
We had dinner with her in an izakaya in Yokohama. Hmmm........... price down, I like that.

We caught the shinkansen south on a very hot `n humid Saturday morning

This was our combined birthdays` present.

The Landmark Tower towering over Chikako~san.

Some delicious Oz bubbles to enhance the belated birthdays` moment.

Sunday night we had tickets for the Show !
Omar Sosa  Afro-Electric Quartet
performing at
Motion Blue Jazz Club.

Soooooooooo hot & humid yet again.

Not the best-ever self-portrait but it was the best we could do at the time....
