On this date I usually feature this painting, because not being a
math freak, Pi reminds me of pie, and Steven makes the best
cherry pie I've ever tasted. Because December and January
were rough, I ate way too much of every sweet, so I may
forego having pie today. Tempting though. We had a little
conversation about the math behind Pi at lunch today.
Last year this painting won first place, and I won a $500
in a contest with the San Fernando Valley Arts and Cultural
Center in California in a virtual exhibition. And that was
Greek symbol π which is the ratio of the circumference of
a circle to its diameter. The first three digits in Pi are 3
(this is the third month) and 14 (the fourteenth day)
= 3.14 or Pi. What better day to eat pie if you get the urge.
And any way you slice it you will not be alone in your
I live with a mathematics fiend, (Steven) who has been
known to sleep with a Calculus text beside his bed at the
ready should he feel like reviewing it with his morning coffee.
He also makes a mean cherry pie -- the point of the
painting. The pie."
Have a deliciously-happy-Pi-day.
