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.

12 of 12, January 2020 (and Moods of the Mountain #116)

So, a new year begins and the 12 of 12 tradition continues. Just as well I didn’t make a new year resolution about upping the quality and interest value of this weird little habit, because today was a very mixed day and most of the time I forgot it was the 12th and so forgot to […]

Moods of the Mountain #109

Early morning moon-set on a winter’s day (well, relatively early, given that it is very close to […]

Moods of the Mountain #108

Autumn equinox has just passed, the days are rapidly getting shorter, and the sun is drifting further to the right/north of the mountain come sunset time. These spectacular clouds are being lit by a sun that is way off frame for the first photo, but which is making another set of spectacular clouds above the northern […]

Moods of the Mountain #107

As mentioned in the last Moods of the Mountain post, the sun moves northwards as we move into autumn, although we are still enjoying “summer time”. Here are three shots from the beginning of March: the first two showing a spectacular sky on the 2nd, and the final one showing a differently spectacular sky on the […]
