Dispirited Life.

Vincent Van Gogh was a troubled painter. He lived a dispirited life. He used substances and slept with prostitutes. He had no family of his own and no physical belongings except his paintings which he sold to a nights stay or one or two warm meals. He started painting in his thirties and lived his life in doubt and delusion. His painting are now worth millions. Is living on the edge made him great?

I woke up this morning checked my emails and social media. I had my tea and read news. I played video games and checked emails and social media. Will i ever be a fraction as great as Von Gogh was?
