One young man discovered an odd, somewhat unsettling sight – a white van parked on his property – but what he found after investigating the vehicle was something he never expected to find.
The world can be a frightening, scary and dangerous place. Television news stations and many different websites seemingly aim to keep their viewers and readers in a constant state of fear and panic. They produce story after story about the latest deadly, violent crime, a product recalled and another corrupt, morally bankrupt politician.
With such constant fear and negativity, someone might think that every time they open the door and step outside, they are going to be either shot, stabbed or infected with a deadly, airborne disease. But that's not the case at all.
This was something that Aaron Craig learned after investigating a strange, sketchy white van parked just off the road on his property.
In the clip posted on TikTok, Aaron holds the camera as he addresses the audience, informing them of the situation.
"Just got back home, and there's some guy that's like parked in a strange white van in front of our house," he said. "I have no idea what's going on. So, I'm going to go talk to him. I'm not sure what's happening."
The minute-long video continues as Aaron slowly makes his way to the vehicle with the unknown driver.
But in the middle of the screen, there is text that reads how Aaron was blown away by what he eventually found inside the vehicle.
"Sketchy van parked out front of our house. I did NOT expect this," the text reads.
Driver in Mysterious White Van Turns Out To Be Painter Who Has Documented Land For Decades
About halfway through the video, at the 27-second mark, Aaron eventually makes his way to the passenger side window. The driver is an older gentleman. He explains what he's doing as he holds up a painting of a beautiful sunset and landscape.
"You know, over the last 25 years, I'm pretty much a forgotten human being," the man says. "But I keep working at it, and I'm trying to be an antidote to the way the world has gone."
As the video shows, the van’s interior is covered in paint. Paintbrushes and empty paint tubes decorate the inside of the strange, white van.
At the end of the clip, Aaron states that the man is actually "a painter. " He "does amazing shows all over the place." Aaron adds that the man in the white van has "been documenting this land for, like, 40 years."
Do bad and terrible things take place in the world? Yes, of course, they do. Using common sense and exercising caution is always a good rule of thumb. But living in a constant state of fear and worry does nobody any good.
