The Articulate Silence

Dear Pogue, Are you OK? I haven't written for a while as I have been travelling. Travelling sort of messes with my head and crashes my routine, especially when there's a time difference. When I am not writing I initially don't concern myself. Then, as time passes, concern begins to creep up and eventually a … Continue reading The Articulate Silence

Listen to the Lion

Dear Pogue, You know all about Einstein? Well, on a day off from science he is reputed to have said: If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.
