Music and mathematics are simply the architecture of patterns.
In this big data era where every object has the potential to be a Trojan horse I think it is important to pause and celebrate innovation and our restless seeking to frame, organize and understand patterns.
A very special friend and talented musician Philip Sheppard says:
If architecture is frozen music, then music is liquid architecture.

So this #PI DAY – let us CONTINUE to remember the context is not about numbers – it is about expression and our human need for connection:
- You are not a node, you are a frequency . . .
- The map is not the territory . . . deep bow to Alfred Korzybski
- Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted . . . deep bow to Albert Einstein
The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings. ~Eric Hoffer
