This past week, March 14, marked the occasion of Pi day. It was sometimes overlooked, sometimes celebrated and sometimes tolerated.

It has not escaped officials, it has been recognized by officials, though. In 2009 the U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 224 which declared March 14 as "Pi Day" to encourage "schools and educators to observe the day with the appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics."

So, while I'm a few days late, you can still enjoy this poem by Jim Culleny and also the mandala that is used to illustrate it.

And even though it's late have some pie, too.  Key lime. Sour cream. Pecan. Cherry. Apple.
