How indescribably beautiful it is: to feel the cold simplicity of a barracks bunk and its surroundings. To live in a world free of all care knowing that a great unknown power keeps body and soul together and surely regulates the functions of both. How sad - cruel it is - to suddenly be discharged from this state and to suddenly find one's self - out - alone - in a sea of chaos - where every spray is but indifference, where every [illegible] - every smell is but a flighty emotion of humanity around us, pawing [?] under us, buoying us with life but again relaxing us for newer waves - newer emotions to buoy us again. To go back to the old job! By other man.
