The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 727

We often put our favorite artists and idols on pedestals far above others and at times, even above ourselves. I know I am guilty of it where G.O is concerned and when I find myself doing it, I pause and remind myself that he is an ordinary man whose life has had some extraordinary moments. At the end of the day however, G.O is human just like you and I. It is very endearing to me when he reminds us of that by way of updating his SNS in the wee hours of the morning with a picture or pictures of the past. It is endearing because he really is not so high on that pedestal to have forgotten his journey and at times seems rather nostalgic over it. Maybe that is what happened on 9 February when he updated his Instagram account with the above. The bulk of this countdown series has been an exercise in nostalgia even when my own history with this amazing artist of man is only in its fourth year. There are four days remaining in his service and in keeping with the trend, I have decided that I will see this series end with equal nostalgia.
