Catbirds like to perch where they have cover and a view, and though the phrase “sitting in the catbird seat” originally meant a position of advantage, I always thought it conveyed perspective. A catbird — reclusive but curious, lyrical if not especially musical — atop a shrub, commenting on the world’s goings-on.
That’s not a bad description of a what a journalist does. Hence this newsletter’s name.
When I finish my book, expect it to take wing. There will be interviews, commentary, story outtakes, questions, shiny objects, pieces of string … and giveaways!
