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.

A holiday break

As you can imagine, the last few weeks have been challenging, as Lisa’s children and I have been navigating the changes and emotions that have been consequences of Lisa’s passing. The school holidays gave us an opportunity to have a bit of a break from all of that, with a friend offering us the use of a holiday house in the north of the state.

On our first full day we headed west and visited Gunns Plains Cave, where we had the tour to ourselves and the guide took a nice photo of the three of us.

We then continued south, and visited a couple of spectacular waterfalls. The first, Preston Falls, drops dramatically over a cliff, with a viewing platform providing a great perspective.

We also visited Silver Falls, where recent rains meant that the flow was very dramatic, although the light was a little on the dark side.

We then headed further west to Burnie, where we visited Guide Falls. The flow was thunderous and although I’m sure I’ve visited the falls before I don’t remember them being this exciting.

Imogen has a good eye for photography, and it was she who spotted this nice gap under a rock.

It was a good day together, and we finished it up by attending a theatre production in Burnie since a friend of ours and his son were doing the sound and lighting … and then we had the long dark drive back to Greens Beach.
