With all the talk of LeVar Burton lately, I was reminded of my childhood. I think many kids of my generation remember tuning into Reading Rainbow on PBS. I was a kid who loved to read! So, this was one of my favorite shows. I loved hearing the kids review the books. I remember buying a book with a red couch on the cover because of a review
I once thought that I would never get around to doing anything with BeautyofMathematics.com. I didn’t think that I had the knowledge for such an amazing URL. Surely, the destiny of this website would be for some organization or mathematician who could brilliant use it for something positive and good.
I felt very early on that I wanted to represent different mathematical constants as cross stitch patterns. The fist one was just a desire for me to have a bookmark with the digits of e! This is still one of my favorite patterns. I followed that up with pi for pi day. It is one of the most popular patterns of all time. The last constant I chose was phi for the golden ratio. I know that has a personal meaning for many and it seemed like a great addition.
I have a story to tell. Like most things like me it is a contradiction. I am an over achiever in many ways but also an under achiever. I was some born with great potential but I’ve lead a modest life. I have a few accomplishments to my name that I treasure. Like getting into the University of Chicago is one of them although it turned into a nightmare for me. I didn’t finish out the term there but I think it is better this way because it lead me to my career as a community manger and remote work. Both of which I’ve benefited from.
