I joined the NAACP tonight.

In which white Teramis remembers her roots of color and black family offshoots, and – inspired by Rosa Parks and Angela Bassett – joins the NAACP.

Rethinking Ancient Symbols. Part I: Color

In writing my novel, I came to a speed bump when it came time to describe symbols used in intel work. Neither colors nor icon forms have symbolic associations such as we are accustomed to in our own Earth-based culture. For instance, the color “yellow” does not imply “caution” to the Sa’adani observer. What symbols, then, to use, and why? This is part I of a three part post exploirng the use of symbols in my science fiction book Splintegrate.
