Most people lead dull and uninteresting lives: I'm no different from the majority. But every so often, when someone exceptional dies, you see what an exceptional life is. David Bowie died on Monday: http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-35278872, one of the world's true exceptional individuals. The Master of Change and Reinvention, a musical artist who could express so much emotion so masterfully. His work shaped a generation.
Steve Jobs, David Bowie, Paul Callaghan... exceptional people.
