    ///////a wonderful journey through the recent history of papermaking. I sat here with my eyes closed so that I would concentrate on the message. Actually, I visited several of the different sights in New york city as they moved from place to place, involving various projects and people.
    one of the times was when Paul Wong was casting paper with Sue Gosin on a very large mold. When I told him about being there that day, he said that it was the first day he had worked for /with Sue.
