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.

“My hair a flock of cockatoos”

There’s a choral piece that we’ve been singing with Loose Canon entitled “My Nurse and I”, which was written by Matthew Orlovich in 2010 as a setting of a poem written by Nicolette Stasko. It references the Australian landscape and its fauna, and opens with the words

I am twined in the great trees
by the river
my hair a flock
of cockatoos
settling in branches

On my way to work the other day a flock of cockatoos settled in the branches of fairly great tree not far from the river and hung around long enough for a photograph.
