My sister loved paper and Chinese Medicine. I don't really know which one was predominant for her. If I had to guess, I would say paper. Paper would have been a metaphor for the thoughts of the world, private prayers, love letters, grocery lists and the holy words of the world's Bibles. She would really enjoy the sight of a blank page. She would take a page and decorate it and color it till it was something a person would keep and treasure. She made this book or scroll in the Chinese fashion for me. It also tells of the beliefs the Chinese have for good health.
