A few readers have asked about the symbol I use repeatedly in NAKED. It is a section marker throughout and appears on the spine of the book.
A spine defines a structure and creates balance. In an animal’s back it forms rows of support. In a book, the place where all pages meet in one plane.
It is here I placed the Greek letter delta.
In the field of mathematics, the delta is used to signify change or a derivative from the previous - a transition, a shift. My memoir and the seven or so years it captures are about change, reflection, and growth.
My transitions came in waves, they grew, swelled, and built energy - some expected, others unforeseen.
I hope to always continue changing, growing, and learning.
Because as Benjamin Franklin warned …
“When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.”
