One of the vistors to our garden today. A bit windblown and hungry judging by the way he tucked in after this was taken.

Where is our Nirvana? Where is our Kurt Cobain? When I turned 27, I didn't have any grand ambitions. The only goal I set was basic: just survive the year. It seemed a reasonable goal considering all the people who I looked up to who hadn't (Wikipedia: 27 Club). This week I realized, wait. If the Kurt of my generation should be dead, shouldn't he (or she) have made three albums by now? Did I miss Nirvana?

I wrote an email yesterday. Completed it. Then didn't send it. I had second thoughts. If I get performance anxiety when I'm writing email, how the hell can anyone suck hard enough long enough to later become Nirvana? You have to be really bad for remarkably long to become a good musician. I know. I was a horrible bassist for too long. Think Gladwell's Outliers here, The Beatles had actually been on stage an amazing number of hours before they ever hit America.

Did coming of age on the Internet make us collectively more self-conscious? Or maybe it's how crippling complete unconstrained possibility is? It used to be you had to fight for a really long time to be heard. You had to dream of being able to play a concert and hustle to make it happen, all the while practicing and refining your craft. Now we have near infinite microphones and nothing to say. People feel embarrassed to try, because they know they suck. Sucking requires a dream to endure through. And anyway, you found that band on Hype Machine that already makes music just like what you were thinking of.

Is it odd that we don't have a name for the last decade? Did I not miss our Nirvana? Did I really miss a decade? Did we all? #lostdecade #lostgeneration

Challenge inspired by the comments:
Part of why Nirvana was Nirvana was it changed the way we thought of music in the early 1990s. Name bands that profoundly changed the way we wrote and listened to music in the last 10 years.

Story
Introduction
My aim, my passion, is diversity and variety. I give people clarity. Call me on +44 7880 794127

In business I provide a clarity of understanding about the business model, develop robust strategies and facilitate implementation of change.

In all that I do I believe that it is not how a person treats the strong and the self reliant that measures their humility but how they reach out to those unable to reach out to them. Then you see their true character.

I read whatever interests me, sometimes business books, sometimes novels, seeking great writing and ideas that stimulate and set me thinking in new ways.

I enjoy good acting, and great drama. I'm aware of politics but believe that if you want to be a politician you should be barred from taking up office!

I love the cut and thrust of reasoned debate, I'm amused when views are changed by force of argument, amused because it proves (again) that time spent understanding others and gaining knowledge benefits everyone involved.

Knowledge shared is not lost, it grows, and others add new and unexpected dimensions before they return it
