Lust for Life
We watched the movie, Lust for Life, last night. Kirk Douglas played Vincent Van Gogh. It was beautiful to see all the places he painted, the rooms he lived in, the fields, the trees, sunflowers, even the starry night. What a body of wonderful art this terribly troubled man left us to enjoy! Mental illness is difficult today, but must have been so much worse in his time without the medications and therapy to help that are available today.
I will be busy with grandchildren for the next three days. I am hopeful some fun art will come out of that. Theirs and mine! We shall see.
