    i know this is unrelated to it, but it reminds me of the death of Meriwether Lewis's death? wether it was suicide or murder? i had to write and essay on it in class before school ended and it really peaked my interest for a history assignment. personally i believe it was murder because there's no way he could've shot him self twice in the head with gun that made tennis ball wholes in things up close.

    The idea that suffering artists are better artists is horrible. Vincent created sime of his best paintings after making the choice to get better! He admitted himself to a psychiatric hospital and he was trying to become healthy! We need to stop romanticizing his mental illness
