First Spiral Concept

These are the first sketches in which I was thinking about spirals.

In this figure, I was playing with what a single conversation would look like visualized on a spiral. At this point, I hadn't figured out how to do linear spirals, which is why this spiral looks different from all the rest.

Some of the basic ideas are starting to show up here - spirals representing the history of a single relationship over time, organized by topic.
