physical embrace of presence

Delphi entered with a shout, a huzzah, a loud and physical embrace of presence. A turban had been wrapped around her head, For a short period, the turban seemed to define Delphi but then she never wore a turban again. Maybe she wanted to look like Gloria Swanson or maybe she’d cut her hair off and donated it or I suppose she may have been going through chemo. I think someone said something about cancer once. like someone told me that Delphi was in remission, but if so, I never heard of it before or since. At first, at least that first night, she wore a beige turban.
