To honor the season, we’ve run up a new page, full of holiday goodies, which we hope you’ll enjoy from now through the end of the statutory Twelve Days. For the fashion-forward, there’s also a new exhibit at the top of our Gallery page—nothing to do with Christmas, but festive in its own way.

Late in life, Clarke took up the study of astronomy. We like to think she would have been pleased that we went public with all this on the night of December 21, 2020, coinciding not only with the winter solstice but with The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, which she would have been glued to her kitchen window to see, starting an hour before sunset.

We hope you have a safe and happy holiday season. Merry Whateveryoucelebrate!
