If ever there were an apt description of our time, it would be that we are the ‘mobile generation’, in every sense of the word. We are a people of movers, we are offered choice on so many levels. And, in this way, we are far removed — both in ideology and practice — from those generations before us, who were generally more static and certainly less transitory. ‘Option’ is a double-edged sword. It can bring uncertainty whilst also ensuring that life is never dull. We are an age of dreamers, of doers, and explorers. But is there a method to our madness or are we destined to be forever searching for the next great distraction? Only time, and that strange looking fortune teller down the road, will tell.
