I’m back. Again.
I know … I know …
If it’s any consolation, it wasn’t much of a holiday. My wonderful Mum got rushed into hospital so I flew over to be by her side.
Thankfully the wonderful people at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham managed to stabalise her and she even managed to come home in the time I was there.
I cannot tell you how traumatic it all was – or how grateful I am to the NHS as it genuinely was touch and go – but what this means is a week from today, she will be going back into hospital for major heart surgery as she has a weak valve and that is the cause of all her recent ailments.
I’ll be there and staying for a month so this blog will be intermittent over this time so as I know all this coming and going is probably playing with your mind [cough, cough], I thought I’d ease you back into my rubbish with this simple fact.
The founder of Spotify is worth approximately 3 billion dollars, which is about 2.4 billion dollars more than Paul McCartney – one of histories richest and most successful composers and performers – despite having never written a single song.
Which all goes to show that while creativity may have the power to inspire, it’s the people who know how to monetise its power and control it’s distribution that makes the real money.
Might be a lesson adland could do with remembering.
