The Approaching Calm

Perhaps the serenity is no bigger than a man’s hand, but the winds are beginning to subside.

The blowhards are still there, still drawing paychecks, and still defending the unjustifiable, but they’ve taken a painful blow to their middle parts, they are gasping for air, they are trying to stand up straight, and they are primping for the cameras as though their place in the world still exists.

Humorous and pathetic. And ironic, which is always a special treat for me; something to go into my 2016 Prayer of Thanksgiving for sure.

The nation has looked like a playpen. Or an asylum. More like an asylum.

There is still a lot more grousing to come of course, still some street violence to demonstrate one’s deepest personal virtues, but still, the Season of Idiots appears to have run its course, and the idiots have won handily.

As I prophesied.

But Bach still speaks to us, Dvorák, Rachmaninoff, Dante, Blake….

You’re not thinking Wayne Grudem can speak to you? Clear leadership, strong direction, personal orthodoxy . . . who could want more.

Ah yes, Wayne Grudem, another one of the cruelties of The Season I’d almost forgotten.

Thanks for reminding me! (Now I think I feel my headache returning.)

I did not support Trump in the primary season. I even spoke against him at a pastors’ conference in February. But now I plan to vote for him. I do not think it is right to call him an “evil candidate.” I think rather he is a good candidate with flaws.

What an embarrassment.
