Parallel Lines Do Not Meet

PARALLEL LINES DO NOT MEET.

-

Happiness...is not...a mathematical formula
that one can apply to supply an answer.

Rather...it is the sum of who you are
multiplied by who you are willing to be.

I was very moved when you read this poem at the Poetry Cafe last week, Donall, and it's lovely to have it set out here to read for myself. The mathematics of happiness is certainly mysterious and wonderful, when one plus one makes one. You and I have a simultaneous equation going on, and the solution is all the time becoming clearer to us.

The crown of the poem is the end: Parallel Lines do meet... ...at Infinity.
