The older I get, the more I start to contemplate legacies and what they mean. What we leave behind for those after us seems to be a focal point whether it’s a physical or spiritual, our departing mark we leave on the world seems to be all that we can be remembered by. Just look at 2016 with the mass passing of celebrities, each was remembered and discussed about for at least one of their contributions to the zeitgeist. Sadly sometimes it isn’t their most valuable contribution to society that is mentioned but the most memorable and often the most scandalous. But that’s the thing about legacies, people start to think that they are public property, something for us all to offer a comment on. But I like to think legacies are what we ourselves create and not what others do after we are gone. So this is me creating mine, which coincidentally this week involves Swedish fashion house Our Legacy, I’m choosing to make 2017 the year of control, you might not be able to control when you leave this world but you can control what you leave in this world. So what will your legacy be?
