Sadness

I feel a calm sense of sadness. I’m not sure what it is about. I do hope it isn’t a prophecy of Trump winning super tuesday (God forbid).

I am just sad. It is almost peaceful, if a little exhausted as well. But it is odd. Maybe it is just hormonal. Or maybe we are at the end of an age.

“If everything is lost, thanks be to God
If I must see it go, watch it go,
Watch it fade away, die
Thanks be to God that He is all I have
And if I have Him not, I have nothing at all
Nothing at all, only a farewell to the wind
Farewell to the grey sky
Goodbye, God be with you evening October sky.
If all is lost, thanks be to God,
For He is He, and I, I am only I.”

-Brother Julian in A Severe Mercy
