My son who I call Mid-sized B is a Math guy...in fact, he carved Pi as the design on our halloween pumpkin... pumpkin pi(e) , get it?
He's excited that his university Math dept. is serving pie today. And holding a contest to see who can recount the most digits of Pi.
Because Pi is not just 3.14... it is a seemingly infinite number, yet it is, as Lucy Mercer points out this morning in her delightful post, a constant.
Some of us struggle with the whole concept of infinity, which underlies my entire struggle with mortality, finite humanity, and the search for this thing we call the soul.So to have a perfect constant AND infinity all at once boggles my brain. I guess that's why it's Mid-sized B, not his father, who is the math guy...
Excuse me, my head hurts. Maybe some Pie might help.
