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.

Midlands #2014-3S

ifThe previous blog post doesn’t tell the full story of just how crazy yesterday was, suffice to say that by the end of the day I was in Launceston, and by 15 minutes before my class was due to start today I was back in Hobart. Both legs of the trip — up and back — had their picturesque moments, but I barely had time to stop.

The dry summer is supposed to be coming to an end but we’re into autumn and they’re forecasting 27°C for tomorrow which is very mild; the legacy of the lack of rain is kilometre after kilometre of sun-bleached fields, where the long grasses are interrupted by the stubborn thistles raising their mocking heads above the soft ocean of pale gold. I don’t think this was the best shot I could have taken, but I needed a safe place to stop and, when you’re cruising at 110km/h, it takes a bit of distance to stop after spotting a likely location and I knew I didn’t have time to mess around walking back to where I’d seen something useful.
