Enlightenment = conversations with God

A noble heart never forces itself forward.

Its words are


rare gems,

seldom displayed


of great value.

Whispers of fragrant breeze


NOT one is filled with madness like to mine
In all the taverns! my soiled robe lies here,
There my neglected book, both pledged for wine.
With dust my heart is thick, that should be clear,
A glass to mirror forth the Great King’s face;
One ray of light from out Thy dwelling-place
To pierce my night, oh God! and draw me near.

From out mine eyes unto my garment’s hem
A river flows; perchance my cypress-tree
Beside that stream may rear her lofty stem,
Watering her roots with tears. Ah, bring to me
The wine vessel! since my Love’s cheek is hid,
A flood of grief comes from my heart unbid,
And turns mine eyes into a bitter sea!

Nay, by the hand that sells me wine, I vow
No more the brimming cup shall touch my lips,
Until my mistress with her radiant brow
Adorns my feast-until…

Journey of creative enlightenment

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock 
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring 
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun 
Now the jingle hop has begun.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock 
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time 
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square 
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it’s the right time 
To rock the night away 
Jingle bell time is a swell time 
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh 
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet 
Jingle around the clock 
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet 
That’s the jingle bell, 
That’s the jingle bell, 
That’s the jingle bell rock.

Carol of the Bells

Hark! how the bells 
Sweet silver bells 
All seem to say, 
“Throw cares away.” 
Christmas is here 
Bringing good cheer 
To young and old 
Meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong 
That is their song 
With joyful ring 
All caroling 
One seems to hear 
Words of good cheer 
From ev’rywhere 
Filling the air

Oh how they pound, 
Raising the sound, 
O’er hill and dale, 
Telling their tale, 
Gaily they ring 
While people sing 
Songs of good cheer 
Christmas is here 
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas 
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas

On, on they send 
On without end 
Their joyful tone 
To ev’ry home

Tennis = love game of God




“I have my doubts. It’s normal, we are talking about a knee, so of course I am afraid to see how it is going respond,” Nadal told Canal Plus television on Friday. “But I can only trust my doctors and believe in myself and that everything will be all right.”




“The ATP and its players have made it clear to the U.S. Open that we do not support a Monday final,” the governing body for men’s tennis said in a statement. “We strongly believe the U.S. Open should keep a similar schedule to the other Grand Slams, with the men’s semifinals completed by Friday and the final on Sunday.

“It is unfortunate the U.S. Open response did not reflect our views on this issue and the ATP and its players will continue…
