  • Explaining Pi

    One day my wife and I noticed our boy, 6 at the time, repeating something to himself while holding a dollar bill. Suddenly, he says, “I got it!” He then quoted back to us the serial number from the dollar bill without looking.

  • Metamorphosis

    Change is constant and definite. To be is to change. Everything in the physical universe is changing from life to death. It is a cycle.
