As a writer and an artist, people often ask me the cliché question, "What inspires you?". My answer? The unexpected events of daily life, my physical surroundings, my wardrobe, the news, documentaries, random thoughts I have while taking a shower, recently read books, and conversations with both loved ones and complete strangers. The list carries on but essentially it's life in general that serves as my cosmic inspiration. With that being said, it was a "friendly" debate with my mother via social media that led me to this contentious topic- wearing authentic animal fur. She advocated a more "anti-fur" stance, whereas I advocated a stance that was more along the lines of "wearing fur as a situational justification". To wear fur or not to wear fur? THAT is the philosophical question.
