when i was a cashier at a cafe & bakery and I saw a bill that was stained or had something written or stamped on it, i would try to throw it under the other bills so when i was counting out my till i could take a photo of it. i now have a ton of photos of bills with names, numbers, rips, and colors (and some coins that are painted, bent, or burnt). i loved taking a photo so i could look at it later and imagine the story behind the bill- all the hands it has touched. the foods, drugs, strippers, ball games, school books, etc. it was exchanged for. the people who wrote on the bills, and their motivations for it. and how many people have passed it since. and how many times it has gone unnoticed. i have so many pictures of money now and i am glad
This is so beautiful :)
"Today in class the teacher asked the question, ‘Is it better to have loved and lost, or to never have loved at all?’ I said, ‘to have loved and lost’ and you said, ‘to have never loved at all.’ I looked at you and you looked at me, and thats when I knew you never loved me at all.

this just tore my heart out
