Summary
"My writings create space for my soul to breath, to be, and to cast off the fetters of my self. That welcoming space, where there had appeared to be none, is Beauty. Beauty is also at the heart of mathematics. Each folder's dimensions are the ratio of the square root of 2, that is 1:1.4142. Each folded sheet has a similar ratio and is folded along lines selected from the dynamic symmetry grid of a square root two rectangle. The same rule applies to the text insert in each folded sheet. As I open to the infinite facets of Beauty, I would like to share my process. Readers may enjoy the tactile sense of slowly opening each folder and finding, for themselves, words to ponder."
