The Last Post

I wanted to write my way out of jeopardy and jaundice under the NEWNESS label.

As it happened, only 33 postings made it.  Seven drafts, four completely blank, exist. 

"Be still and know that I am God." 

It turns out that shutting down the talk show is better than contributing to it.  Therein lies the jaundice.   In commenting we alter attitudes for the worse. Cynical hostility, resentment and suspicion increase.

In stillness and in surrender to God, of my all, under the blooms of a creeper that runs along a lattice of skinny tree trunks I heard the wind-dried blooms scrape their pink skirts across the paving.

I found a new place that I shall not surrender easily.

Jaundice is more dangerous than jeopardy.  Jeopardy is imagined, but jaundice is infectious. 

This is the last posting under NEWNESS.

NEWNESS has been achieved. 

To God be the Glory.
