So I have decided to make my bills out of things that I truly love and that inspire me...SAINTS. I'm going to choose some of my go to saints and put them on my bill with stained glass, cathedrals, the prayer that goes along with the saint and possibly even floor plans?--I have a lot of ideas going through my head now, when at the beginning of class I really had know idea. My bills will be ornate and beautiful. FINGERS CROSSED. More to come :)
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace: where there is hatred let me sow love, where there is injury let me sow pardon, where there is doubt let me sow faith, where there is despair let me sow hope, where there is darkness let me give light, where there is sadness let me give joy. O divine master, grant that I may not by comforted but to comfort, not to be understood but to understand, not to be loved but to love. For it is giving that we receive, it is forgiving that we are forgiven, and it is dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
I was having a somewhat of a difficult time deciding on what I wanted to do for the currency project. In my head it had to be big and perfect. We'll I stumbled across this website that is featuring Scientists and Mathematicians--as you scroll down you will notice that not all scientist or mathematicians. So that got me thinking--why don't I do things that I enjoy--question is does it have to be cohesive?

Kristian Birkeland, 200 Norwegian Kroner (1994)
Blaise Pascal, 500 French Frances (1977). The note is now obsolete.
Ruggero Boscovich..I like the 4 bills below--because they just changed the color. SIMPLE
