The joy of numbers

A friend pointed out that this week and month has all manner of math fun commemorated in it, including, next week, Pi Day.  Since it’s being a long and complicated week for me already, adding mathematical musings to it might have once seemed outrageous.

But that was before Elizabeth O, some years ago, shared some extremely valuable insight with me:  life is really all about algebra.  Every day is spent solving for x.

Indeed.
