in here somewhere about what the Mary's represent, or did I imagine
that? I know I was thinking about what "...walked with the Lord"
would mean if it were all metaphor. Oh, heck, I can't put a thought
together right now. I just had 50 1st graders under their tables
pretending to be cavemen while reproducing the Caves at Lascaux.

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!
