The Delta


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.”
