Perhaps it’s time for me to read some Dorothy Day.
Mysticism for Mathematicians by Kate Henley Averett
“I am instinctively more comfortable around the logical, around things that are neat and tidy and easily diagrammed….Yet as much as I liked the explainable and answerable, I longed for something more…”
“I learned to love questions the way I had once loved answers.”
“The more I read Day’s writings, the more I found myself seeing the world through her unique “mystical” lens. I began to see things beyond what I was really seeing, and as the world as I saw it became more complex it somehow also became more simple. In Dorothy Day, my mathematician’s heart found its mystical hero.”
