Bilateral Contracts

Often we do not associate ourselves and loved ones with a number or ticket, but rather a moment, experience or memory. When we think of tickets we gravitate towards thoughts regarding purchases, contest and ultimately ourselves because we are thinking about how we as individuals can win. Though love should not feel competitive, sometimes we can find ourselves wondering how we can win and even buy our way into the hearts of others. These love tickets are a physical reminder and totem of these ideas as well as a reminder of the commitment of what it means to love others as well as yourself.
