Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular great painter of all time. The most beloved. His command of colour, the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world. No one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence, was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.

Can’t believe it. What a horrible freaking day. Still can’t eat much food. Appetite is totally screwed. Sleep is almost nonexistent. So I went to sick call this morning to get some sleep meds and diet regulators. What happens 4 hours later? I’m told that I have a 24 hour duty and have to stay up all night. Way to go Army. You did it again. So I’m at Staff Duty and find out my grandfather has been in the hospital for the last week. But on the bright side, I’ll be home June 18th-30th and July 31st-August 7th. Badass.

Philosophy for the Day

Why does it seem as if positivity is being phased out of today’s society? It appears that everyone has something to complain about, but never stops to appreciate the blessings in their lives. You see negativity everywhere. People are always quick to point out the bad things that happen to them. Even in music and movies you hear artists and actors complaining about their lives or the life they portray. Basically, what I’m saying is that we should take time to look at the good things happening in our lives and forget about the negativity every now and then.
