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, February 2019 (and Moods of the Mountain #105)

The day began with a rainy morning, after a hot, dry January with many bushfires. Hopefully the rain will go some way to finally extinguishing the remnant smouldering bits.

My Mum kindly dropped around an egg and bacon pie, which will solve the Tuesday dinner problem before my evening rehearsal (and some other meals later in what is going to be a busy week).

I spend a large portion of the day working on an ARC research grant application, with some of the time wasted because I had to make revisions once I had found the correct spreadsheet to use instead of the wrong one.

As you may recall I have started singing again, this time with the TSO Chorus. Currently we are working on Bach’s St John Passion, which will be performed just before Easter. I am finding it hard work to learn my part, but rewarding. One of the challenges is that we are singing in German faster than I’ve ever sung in English and there are lots of tricky intervals. I know I need to get it “sung in”, so I have a tenor rehearsal track on repeat in the car.

As it is rehearsal night I need to find a place to park. Despite being an employee of this inestimable institution, I am not sure that I am allowed to park in this particular car park at this particular time. I chanced it.

Here’s where we rehearse (well, in a room at the back of the main performance hall), and there’s a quick sneaky shot of our mid-rehearsal supper break.

I hadn’t had a walk during the day, so I wandered around the docks after the rehearsal as it is always fun to take night photos and the wooden boat festival had just finished up meaning there were still a few tall ships around.

[The “12 of 12” project involves taking 12 photos on the 12th of the month; this is the 114th instalment of something that started in 2009.]
