LOL. Maybe the pie never gets finished! DON'T QUIT! I hate that you're even contemplating it. I made your lemon tart for my book group's FOOD52 launch party last night--I used Paule Caille's pie crust. It was a MAJOR hit.

I was just musing. "A man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for?"

You know, it's just a reminder unattainability of perfection, always something to strive for, the temporal nature of wordly goals. Very philosophical, really!

Meanwhile, I want that lemon tart!

Want a full pie? Go to work for FOOD52... In a very quick check, I see that Amanda and Kristen have complete pies -- gold stars, gold medals, full pies -- that's what you get when you have a full plate!

With a big appetite you might start with a full pie and then really quickly find it's empty, and there are suspicious crumbs around your mouth! :)

each time they add purple to half the remaining white space.. So even as the white turns purple, its asymptotic in its journey to completion..

That's one definition of infinity -- if they keep adding purple to half the remaining white space, that means it will never be complete!! LOL

i was trying to avoid using the infinity term for fear of killing motivation!
