- Hey, Gerry.

That site was my first look at Gnostic texts. I was so shocked at all
of it that I couldn't stop reading. (I think my eyes shrunk they were
so dried out.) What a labor of love--I truly appreciate their efforts.
BTW, is it unseasonably warm for you, too?

Thank you, Jana, for noticing them.

And ya know, that was the one suggestion you wrote me that I was the most hesitant to attempt. There's something about the dual-layered papyrus and its almost glossy sheen that made me wonder if such coarse measures would destroy the whole thing, but the more I've thought about it (along with your renewed convictions), the more I believe it would indeed yield a desirable finish. I imagine the weathered results would be akin to repeatedly wadding up a sheet of paper to the point that it becomes more like a thin piece of cloth rather than a crisp piece of paper. Only this way, you avoid the wrinkles!
