Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Mists on the mountain

It was a lovely spring afternoon, and I felt the need for some mountain wandering. I had to dodge the madding crowds at the summit, but once I started to head south across the plateau people were few and far between.

A rather cloudy August 23—and some good timing—allowed me to capture the summit peeking out […]

Moods of the Mountain #91

The following day — at a similar time — some of the snow had melted and a bank of cloud was scudding southward across the summit.
