It turns out it was just advertising.

So was it worth it? Well of course not. It turns out it was just advertising. There was no higher calling. No ultimate prize. Just a lot of faded, yellowing newsprint, and old video cassettes in an obsolete format I can’t even play any more even if I was interested. Oh yes, and a lot of framed certificates and little gold statuettes. A shit-load of empty Prozac boxes, wine bottles, a lot of grey hair and a tumor of indeterminate dimensions.
"A Short Lesson in Perspective", written by New Zealand-based art director Linds Redding, after a career in advertising and a cancer diagnosis in late 2011. Initially posted to his blog, it was republished at the San Francisco Egotist, where Redding was an editorial contributor.
Redding died last month at aged 52 from inoperable esophageal cancer.
