In Brief: Poetry and Picard

Dear Readers,

I hope you’ll forgive this departure from our regularly scheduled programming for two brief notes.

First, my first published poem is online to be read or listened to (that’s me reading in a very sleepy voice that I hope comes across as appropriately serious and poetic). It’s about Catherine of Aragon, whom I’ve always found fascinating and rather tragic, in the way that sixteenth-century son-less Spanish princesses can be.

Some weeks ago I mentioned that I’m writing an advice column called Dear Clementine; you can read the first column, called “The Other Picard,” here. It involves both babies and Star Trek. And please do send questions to dearclementinepostscript [at] gmail [dot] com.

And that’s the news from here. What are you up to, Dear Readers?
