I love people. I know everyone says that, especially at job interviews, but I honestly do love people. And yes, it’s no secret that I have an extra fondness for homeless people. Often I run into the most creative and industrious people on the streets, which is how Tilly caught my attention in Austin, Texas.
Tilly found all this sting in a dumpster the day before we met. She does her best to keep herself busy, so she is making the best use out of her ‘discovery’.
Tilly tells an amazing story of mental survival on the streets. Please notice how she describes living in a shelter, and how it’s nearly impossible to heal in a shelter setting.
