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 2015-#20NS

On realising that today’s trip was my 20th northbound work trip for the year (and one of the more tedious ones at that), it was a bit disheartening to do the maths and calculate that 20 trips, at an average of 5 hours a trip, means 100 hours of travelling. Since I can’t work in the […]

One of the reasons

There are many reasons why I keep Scout leading. This is one of them. [“Chippy” is my […]

The poppies are coming into flower in the midlands at the moment; there has been a big increase in the extent of the alkaloid crops since irrigation schemes have grown. (This was taken at about the same place as the third photo in […]

12 of 12, November 2015

Two months ago the 12th saw me in Melbourne; that’s where I ended up again today. The in-flight magazine had only one sudoku, and that had been half-completed by some previous passenger, so I abandoned my pre-take-off ritual and settled down to get some assignments marked, working my way through three before I drifted off as […]

Midlands 2015-#17N

I was heading northwards to run a day of professional learning for teachers in Campbell Town, followed by meetings in Launceston. My colleague and I had heard that there had been a truck roll-over on the highway, but that light traffic was being allowed through. This may have been true for a while during the morning […]

Moods of the Mountain #70

In anticipation of a bad fire season, there have been some “fuel reduction burns” being done. The mountain is not so pretty on a hazy smoky day. It didn’t even turn into a particularly nice sunset.

The full “Moods of the Mountain collection” […]
