A question often asked when meeting someone new is "Where are you from?" -- one of my neighbors, who was born in India and now lives in Maryland, has written a poem that considers many ways one might answer that question. Today, I have been thinking about it too. Here are several of my beginning thoughts . . .
I am from the barn yard, counting chickens
I am from arithmetic, multiplying
I am from algebra, solving
I am from calculus, integrating
I am from poetry, looking for words . . .
