It’s a strange road to walk in advertising for a guy whose dad was gone 2 weeks of every month as a kid, off working with the poorest people he could find, teaching them how to farm and look after their own children Now the middle child of three sons spends part of his day figuring out how to sell confectionery to more people. Marketing can be great fun, but it is such nonsense some of the time.
I’ve just watched an amazing talk from the TED series about a photographer who found a young girl, a product of the Korean war, and gave her a new life in America. I’m not much for crying, but I have tears streaming down my face as I write this. It’s an amazing talk, and a good reminder of how far out of whack our lives can get. Please watch the below video, it is extraordinary.
