We received a call last night from my daughter, Adena. She is in the Himalayas, living with a family in a village outside of Dharumsala, the home of the exiled Dalai Lama. She is part of a group teaching papermaking to Tibeten exiles. She has an Art minor, with papermaking as one of her loves. I always viewed papermaking simply as a nice craft, something to do with your hands while resting your brain. I don't think I believe in destiny, but it does seem she was drawn to papermaking for a reason.
