Sadly, the gentleman I mentioned in my "I am an Artist" post dated September 15 died only a few days later. He was a private person and many, including myself, didn't even know he was so ill. Since I didn't get to offer my appreciation in person at the end, I will take comfort in knowing that I've been feeling very grateful lately of the opportunity he gave me when he asked if I would like to help put his papermaking studio to use. "Oh yes, please!," I think I replied. I felt like it was such an honor to work with him in that space. He had so much to share: his enthusiam, his knowledge, his insight and his vision. Paul was a great teacher and mentor. Thanks Paul, you will be missed!
