Confinement 5

the sketchbook/march 2020


Ok, let’s guess – Fifth letter of the alphabet, second vowel?

E n.m. Cinquième lettre de l’alphabet(aha!) et la deuxième des voyelles (I rest my case!)

And I’m thinking – extension.

The confinement has been extended – it was expected, now it’s official – we are in for the long run.

Though running is meant to be restricted to within one kilometre of the house and for a maximum of one hour.

One guy on his balcony in Toulouse – 7 meters long – ran the marathon, it took him 6 hours and 48 minutes.

Across The Channel someone did the same around and around his garden – his children stretched out some toilet paper for the finish line.

Were they hoarding toilet paper i wonder?

Un petit e; des E majuscules.

I think that applies, the balcony/garden were small, the challenge major. 



Base des logarithmes népériens.

I didn’t know there was a choice.

Hang on…..

The natural logarithm of a number is its logarithm to the base of the mathematical constant e, where e is an irrational and transcendental number approximately equal to 2.718281828459. 


Irrational AND transcendental?

This confinement maybe?
