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 2016-#3NS

After running a day of professional learning in Hobart I headed up to Launceston in the evening to repeat the session the next day.

On the way up I stopped at Campbell Town, and took a photo of one of the illuminated carved trees that adorn the park by the river. I think there’s a deer, and maybe a butterfly, and some other critters hidden in the shade as well.

I also stopped at the side of the road a bit further on because I needed to make a few phone calls before it got too late to call people (which implies that it was already moderately late in the evening).


This was actually my first all-the-way to Launceston trip for the year. I discovered that the original cast recording of Les Miserables gets me from Hobart to Campbell Town, and then one of my a capella albums nicely fills the gap between Campbell Town and Launceston. Needless to say I was more than ready for sleep by the time I checked in to the hotel.

After delivering today’s session — which started half-an-hour later than I’d been told, meaning I could have slept in for an extra half-hour — I hopped into the car for the drive back. Fortunately it was earlier in the day, and so I enjoyed late afternoon light for most of the trip and a bit of dusky darkness towards the end. Near Ross there were some interesting cloud effects, and a distant decaying house.
