Getting the News

Time as relative as Einstein had explained.

Days being shortened by seasons and latitudes,

but this is a false winter solstice -

the day that you were told the news

became the shortest day of the year.

"When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That’s relativity."

March 14

Einstein’s birthday and my oldest son’s birthday.

Ratio of circle’s circumference to its diameter.

Pi Day and this year an unusual 3.14.14.

Which means nothing mathematically special since  π

is that rare worldly thing: a constant.

Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and when expressed as a decimal, the number is seemingly interminable. Pi Day is on March 14 (3.14). This is kind of a Pi month too being 3.14
Jersey’s most Pi-centric town is Princeton. The town was home to Albert Einstein, whose birthday was 3.14 (March 14 is my oldest son’s birthday).
Princeton has Pi recitations (yeah, people reciting the number for as many decimals out as possible), a pie eating contest, pie judging contest and some Pi Day specials around town.
