When I think of paper, I think of...something I can hold in my hands. It's tangible. It has texture. Weight. You can breath it in. You can decorate it--add your own thoughts and expressions (however that may take shape for you). You can experience the thoughts and expressions of others.
We live in a digital age where so much is here and gone in an instant. It’s probably the artist in me, but I believe I will always prefer the tactile (more enduring) experience of paper.
